Fruia Dtuver N»*wft. The extent of that singular pur suit, namely, the collection, assort raent, ami sale of the skeletons of defunct buffaloes on the plains, is surprising. "Bono-picking outfits'" is the plains vernacular, and an in telligent gentleman who has t»|ient the summer and fall with one of these utfits"' sav( that during the season hundreds of men have liem engaged in the business, anil all of I he station in the Kansas Pacific and Atchison. TopeUa and Sante HV Unilrouls ive bone middlemen, so-called, who make good profits liy l»nvinir and shipping the pickings the "pickers." The skeletons are, of course, plentifully scattered over the plaint-, mid parlies of half a dozen, or more, with wagons, go in search of them and bring them into the stations for shipment. It is said that since the first of last month from ten to tweniy tons of buffalo bones have been shipped over th above named lines every day. The bones are worth, delivered at the railway station, an average of #." per ton. The bulk of them are sold for fertilizing purposes in the soil enfeebled districts of the Eastern and Middle States, Philadelphia being he principal point of consignment. Certain portions of the buffalo skele ton, however, are adapted to nobler uses than the invigoration of worn out earth, and are sold at a handsome price to the manufacturers of buttons, combs and knife-handles. At almot every railroad depot are great piles of these queer remains of the bound ing bison awaiting shipment and the vaiiaiioi'B of the value of bones »t» of more interest to the people than the fluctuations of the grain tnarkeis. In assorting for market, strange dis coveries are sometimes made. It is no uncommon thmg, for instance, to find Indian skulls, legs and arms and in some instances the skulls and veriebneof w omen and children have been picked? up. These laiter tire usually tossed aside in a rude sott of reverence for the helpless and inno cent but no such respect is paid to the bones of the Indian. An Indian skull is said to l»e worth a dollar and a quarter for combs, and the Indian thigh makes knife-handles that are beautiful to behold. Hide-hunters along the Kansas 'acific are even more numerous than the bone-piclters, and their trade ia much more exciting and hazardous. They usually follow the wake of utfalo expeditions and roving bands Indian "ineat-jerkers.'' The In lians who kill buffalo take only a small portion of the animal, ami the white men who slav ihein for sport arcly touch theni wiih a knife so that the hide-hunter who goes after usually sure of his spoil, as the hide remains in good order for re moval nearly a week after the killing, the wolves keep away. When hides arc not to le had last enough with personal safety in this way, the hide-hunters project little raids i!u-ii own out into the buffalo ranges, killing the animals simplv for their hides, and leaving tlie meat th leeay. or selling it at a lioiuiniif rate to accompanying parties gr dealers. The hides are tanned and 'drcssei 1 by a much more rapid, hut less pcrfect and effective, process than that fol lwed by the Indians, and only the lidt-s i animals killed in cold wealh tnak»» really valuable robes. In a little more than three months over jil.lMH) 0/ these hides weie shipped from tlje stations 011 the western livisioh of the Atchison, Topeka and Saata Ke Kailroad and it is estiinat ed that the shipments for this year ,er that road and the Kansas Pacific ill aggregate l'-!3,tMK). As each hide lepren nts a slain buffalo these figures convey a fair though not a full idea of the magnificent butchery which has been going on among these tnonarchs of the plains.'' The hides, after being dressed, are rolled up in as small a compass as possible, and shipped to the large Kastcrn cities, where they are subjected to a pro ess of recleaning and drying, and put into the market for sale. The original purveyor of the hides gets bout as much lor them as the New Knglatid or New York farmer re ceives for the hides of his cattle but the profit to the Kastern dealer, as can he seen at a glance, is considera ble. Attempts have been made from time to time to convert the buffalo hide into leather, but without much success and it probably lias no very great value except for use as a robe. ol Black Walnut aad Uoeewood pain led 'Joffins on hand. I "rices reasonable. Prompt attention given with Ilearae when equlred. fome and *ee v atock Mr Water-Witch! Hut of still greater importance than bone-picking or hide-hunting is the rade in buffalo meat. It has em ployed during the last year or two an amount of labor and capital that would seem incredible to a person unacquainted with the facts. The meat market opens in November, when the weather becomes cool enough for its transportation, and ontinucs until the first of April. During these five months as much as i,000,000 pounds are shipped from the stations on the Kansas Pacific to all parts of the country. In the win ter months, a buffalo steak can be obtained about as easily and almost as cheaply in the butchers' stalls of the leading Northern cities as a beef Ueak or a mutton-chop, and in Col orado and Kansas it is co:nmon as antelope.

CUcaga 0«tc tl7 'JIIIH S.Y The fleh of the buffalo is not such las gods would delight to feed u|»o nor would poets find it particularly conducive to the cultivation of sweet and tender imager}*. It is a prosaic sort of merit at best, haviug a droughty kind of coarseness about it, and unless very young and tender, a flavor that only a very hungry man would call appetizing. It is very nutritious, however, and when prop erly dried, the difference between it and "jerked" :eef is not perceptible the ordinary palate. Hut a dog scents the dissimilarity at a single sniff, and will cat notte of it. The Indians rarely cat it iu a fresh state, but 1 y it smali slices, usually in the sun. and serve it up with dried plutns and pnherized acorns, la some of the more htxuiious tribes a gravy, i:i which crushed grasshoppers torm a governing ingredient, is added as a variety, on important festal oc casions. A 1 o, respondent, writing of the "great American bison," thinks it must be some satisfaction to hitn lo know that he is subserving several good purposes in the social economy of the nation. Hut he doesn't look nowadays as though lie took satisfac tion in anything. lie has lost his traditional spirit and haughtiness. He no longer lords it over the prairies, but, on the contrary, skulks in 1 l.e ravines like a runaway slave, and never shews fight wlrle there is a chance to flee. lie has been crowd ed out of nearly all Kansas the In lian Territory is no longer a safe hali ta ion for him and Colorado of fers hitn no refuge. Turn which way he will, pitiless destruction stares him in the face, anil urg s htm sor wfully forward. lie is on his last legs, and he acts as if be realized ii. He is not a haiuhoine or talented brute, but he has good blood in his veins, and deserves a lettoi kite. Just how much longer he will endure cannot be accurately conjectured, but as we say on the border concern ing the Indian, "his paper is matur ig fast" The locomo'ive and the homesteader have been at his heels for several ears past, and they will still pursue him on and on to tho wes ward till some rare and radiint sentiment-monger shall immortalize the last of his species in a venerable bullet-scarred bull, standing on the summit of Mount Diablo, and gazing silently and mournfully out through the (i olden (iate over the blue sweep the Pacific. How an I n iv%* for 1 he meat, only the hams aad shoulders are brought in, and ship menis arts usually made in that shape the hide nearly always being left on to the end of the journey. The lead ing markets for hufTalo meat '-iti the rough" are St. Ixniis, Chicago and Indianapolis, whence it is reshipped in cleaner and more artistic condition to cities of the seaboard. At Kansas City, too, large quantities are cured and packed for ha stern use, and some successful experiments have been ule if. sh pping direct to New York and Philadelphia iu refrigerator ears. The price in the towns along the middle and eastern division of the Kansas Pacific ranges from #50 to fctfO per ton in bulk, and the looal dealers retail at six to eight cents per (Kiund. The settlers ad jacent to the stamping ground of the butfalo procure meat enough iu a day's hunt ing to hist them through the winter and many a poor homestead in the illev of the Arkansas has kept the wolf from ihc door on this article of liet alone for months at a time. married Gallant Vt 011 a Bel. One of the best looking and mc)*^ sought after young business ineq? of Ktica, N. V., had his gallantrjfefrrtr to a severe test last week. charming married lady friend w^ered $l.j with hi in that he dare not carry her iy through one of tb^motit popular streets of the city, 1 feeling par ticularly brave, he accepted the wager. The babjt' was the prettiest little seven ipdfkhs old mortal iu 1'tica, and is fhe idol of its handsome father and ig»thcr. The mother and o'her friQifds of the child were to follow a carriage to see that the task ^fas completed according to the Hums of tho wager. The supposed lalhei and his elegantly dresfed baby attracted general attention upon the business portion of the street. The gentleinanV friends were not certain that they had heard of his marriage, and he had been seen at the opera use frequently of late, and each time with a dtlferent charmer, but this must ha\ e been ow nsr to the absence of his wife from town. The hour chosen was one in which he generally takes an airing, and all of his window friends expected to see him, but—not with a baby. Then the baby commenced to get uneasy, and it was hard work to hold it out at arm's length. Three or four merry maidens in an up-town resi dence rustled the curtains in such a manner that the perspiring toiler knew that he was seen, but lie was bound to win, and win he did. When he mother received her darling child from the hands of th brave one, cold and huge drops perspiration poured from every pore of his face, his neek ie was gone and his collar unbut toned. The next time he carries a baby through the street he is confi lent that it will be his own, and tha£ the other stockholder to the cherub wilt IM within reach. Mr. Joseph T,. Build, of Shellsburg, Iowa, says that a yrove of ten acres of white ash, (Fra.einiu Americana,) hinned to six feet apart each way, containing about twelve thousand trees, will average at twelve years of age, 011 good prairie soil, about eight inches in diameter. The previous thinnings will pay for cultivating to this time.

NO. 1. THE NEGLECTED CilltL. Tbe Remarkable lllHinrj* of Pauper** Oevcmlanio. In the meeting held yesterday of the State Charities Aid Association, I^r. Harris brought forward some of the most remarkable statistics which have ever been obtained in the sci ence of criminal reform. While reading of the efforts of the Prison Association the attention of the Doe tor was called to a county on the Upper Hud«on, where there was a remarkable proportion of crime and poverty to the whole population.The county contained but one town and only small villages, with a popula tioti of some 40,000 yet the number of paupers in its alms-houses wae 480, or about one in ten, not reckon ing a considerable number assisted by out-door relief. This pr 'portion is prohaMv greater than that of Lon don or Paris but of this we cannot be certain, owing lo the defective method everywhere adopted in the statistics of pauperism of enumerat ing names as persons. Jt is certain, however, that the pioportion of pau pers and criminals in the country was alarmingly great. The atten tion of the doctor was attracted to certain names which everywhere ap peared in the criminal and poorhouse records of ihe county, and he was led to follow up the traces of certain families. These again beetned to be connected, and ha was induced to search still further the gcnoalogies of thefe families. The results will remaiu as permanent and most start ling facts iu the history of crime and its consequences. It should be understood by tiur readers that ordinarily it is extreme ly difficult to trace the decent of a ritninals fauiilv. In cities, such families become broken up, aud their members are scattered everywhere in villages, though their lines of decent may be followed, yet the retributive laws of providence usually carry the efTeels of crime only "to the third or fourth generation," and then the race comes to an end through physi al and moral degeneration, the final members being commonly idiots, im beciles, lunatics, and. in some coun tries, cnfins. It happened, however, in this country that tbe physical vigor of the particular family traced preserved some of its members for their evil lestiny, and enabled the investiga tor to trace them during six genera tions of wickedness ami misery. Sutne seventy years ago a young girl named "Margaret" Was left adrift in one of these villages—it does not appear whether through the crime or misfortune of others. There was no alms house in the place, but she was a subject of out-door relief, probably receiving occasionally food and clothing fiom the oflicial?, but never educated, and never kindly sheltered in a home. She became the mother of a long race of crimi nals and paupers, aud her progeny has cursed the country every since. The county records show "J00 of her leeendaiits who have been crto)iu#ljt. In one single generation of her un happy life tlieio were twenty chil dren ol these, three d»«d-fti infancy and seventeen survived to maturity. Of the seventeen/nine served in ihe State prisons lor high crimes an ag gregate term nftifty years, while the others were frequent inmates of jails and penitentiaries and alms-houses! Of tho» !»0'l decendants, through six gQiiCV.itions, from this unhappy girl j\ ho was left on the ullage stress and abandoned in her child a great number have been idiots, imbeciles, drunkards, lnnatics, paupers and prostitutes but the more vigorous are on record as crim inals, The neglected little child lias thus cost ihe county authorities, in the effects she has transmitted, hun dreds of thousands of dollars in the expenses and care of criminals and paupers, besides the untold damages she has inflicted on property and public nvTals. When we think of the multitude of wretched beings she has left upon the. earth, of the tifl'ering, degredation, ignorance and rime that one child has transmitted, if the evil she has caused to thou sands of innocent families, and the ss to ihe community, we can all feebly appreciate the importance to he public of ihe care and education a single pauper child.— .V'"* rk 77»/"•, JJcftnibfT, 1 IKON \C IIR%*KA.

The agent came forward, rubbing his hands, and the stranger asked: 'Do you lake lif" insurance risks here?" 'Yes, sir glad lo see you, sir-— ait down, sii,,v replied the agent. "What do you think of life insur ance, anyway,?" inquired the stran ger, as he sat down and look off his hat. •Tt's a national blessing, sir —an institution which i« looked upon with sovereign favor by every enlighten ed man aud woman in America."

The proprietors of a Cleveland newspaper have recently applied an apparatus to their office chimney which is saiil to be a perfect preven tive of smoke ami a great saver of fuel. Its discovery was purely acci dental. As a mechanic was trying to secure a better draft for a sluggish fire the thought occurred to him, after other devices had failed, to try the effects of steam. A small pipe was made to conduct the dry steam from the top of the boiler to the np |er part of the furnace, which it en tered in two small i"fs, striking down ward on the burning fuel. No sooner was the ste*m injected into ihe fur nace th«n the sluggish, smoky fire soraug up into a clear, bright yellow ish and intensely hot flame, filling the whole furnace with a loud roar. The man found ho had not only secured a strong draft, but something mueh more important—a smokeless fire. The contract for scales required under the newspaper postal law was awarded on the 'Hst inst. to the Fair banks' Scale Company. The number of scales required wiil be about 3,000, the largest contract of the kind ever awarded. The Messrs. Fairbanks made, during the week ending Dec 10th, 1,34 i scales, which gives some idea of the capacity of their works. .-?hkw York gir's pf»H Pact—man says so.

Here's snother point in favor of Detroit: No matter how homely a girl is she can enjoy all the rights and privileges of falling down on a corner that a queen would have.

Six young ladies of Philadelphia who had their missionary contribu tions stolen from their oockets iu church, got mad and inarched out of the sacred edifice exclaiming: "Now, let them little nigger babies in Afri ca buy their own soothing syrup."

A Mis$ourian who attended prayer meeting with his daughter felt com pelled to rise up and remark: "I want to be good and go to heaven, but if those fellers don't stop wink ing at Mary there will be a good deal if prancing around here the fust thing they know!" Walking in the streets of Cleve land tha other day a young lady met a gentleman whose ctfer to marriage she had some months previously re jected. She had repented her hastily formed decision and informed him of' the fact in this shrewd style: "You have no tact in this matter of love.— You should hav£ asked me again." A young lady in Wilmington, Del., wooed by a youth, refused to wed un til he would abandon the habit of drinking whisky, chewing tobacco, and, forsaking the Democracy, be come a good aud true Republican.— The sensible youth complied, and the local paper opines that, happily and thoroughly reformed, he will have cause fur thankfulness as long as he lives that he ever was captured and cured by such an angel. The Troy Time* relates this: "A young lady in a neighboring village sccepted an invitation from a young gentlemen to ride, and when the gen tleman came with his horse and bug gy the ladv found it impossible to get in, so closely had she adhered to the prevailing fashion of drawing her dress tightly about her. She asked to be excused, and, going into the house, let out two or three reefs in ber dress, when she was enabled to get into the bnggy." The ltev.
