I paused in my sewing and looked
out unobserved upon a group of little
folks playing near my window. One
child was running away rapidly, the
others stood beside little Amy Horton,
who gazed ruefully at her own fat hand
and tried hard not to cry. Such a lit

young widow but lately moved into our

knew, as yet, nothing, save that,
since by manners we usually judge, she
was a lady in every respect, gentle,
quiet and refined. I had not yet given
myself the pleasure of calling upon the
new neighbor. Little Amy, however,
child-fashion, had soon grown familiar
with the children of the neighborhood,
and they had made a pet very quickly
of the sweet five-year-old stranger.
What could be the trouble now, I
wondered, seeing Amy's flushed face
and catching the scowl on the brow of
the questioner, who asked, "Why
didn't you strike back again?"
I listened for the answer with in

one, rubbing the red hand with the
other plump white one, evidently quite
hurt both in flesh and feelings.
"Wouldn't kiss your hands!" ex
claimed her listeners wonderingly.
"What do vou mean. Amy? What a
queer idea!'11
I was as much interested as either of
the children, and, peeping through the
vines clustering about the window,
quite safe from childish observation, I
listened for Amy's explanation.
"Mamma always kisses my hands
when they haven't been naughty, and
it is naughty to strike. That little
girl's mamma won't kiss her hands to
night, will she?" Amy's blue eyes
looked up into the faces around her,
and, full of wonderment at her words,
the sympathetic children kissed and
pitied her to her heart's content.
Then I went out and talked to the
-ittle one, with a new respect for the
ure mother whom more than ever 1
to know. Will you take me
to your house, dear?" I asked, offer
ing my hand with a smile, and stoop
ing to kiss the small grieved face.
"O! Mrs. ," cried the children in
chorus, "what do you think! That Sal
lie Jones struck Amy real hard on her
arm and hand just because Amy didn't
want to walk with her! Wasn't it the
meanest thing?"
I agreed rather indignantly that it
teas the meanest thing, and then we
walked along the pleasant road to
where Amy's mother lived. At my
suggestion the children remained out
side while I made my long-intended
call upon Mrs. Horton. After awhile I
npeated Amy's remark, and, asking
pardon for curiosity, begged to know
ijore about the sweet idea. Mrs. Hor
ten laughed, but I saw the glisten of
•liars in her eyes as she replied:

during the day, if they had struck at

could not kiss them because they were

very hard for my baby, I assure yon.
It was the same with the little lips. If
a naughty word had escaped them—I
mean wilfuUy naughty words —or if my
ltttle girl had not spoken quite the
truth during the day, I could not kiss
the lips although I always kissed her
on cheeks and forehead, never allowing
her to go unkissed to bed. But she
cared more for kisses on hands and lips
than for anything else in the world, i
believe my loving little Amy! And
gradually the naughty ways were done

would say, Tean hannies to-night,

The Metal-Cure^
l)r. William Hammond of New York,
that keen student of the human nerv
ous system, has been making some cu
rious and interesting experiments late
ly with the "metal-cure" which is now
having a European repute. This sin
gular method of cure originated with
an American doctor named Perkins,
years ago, who by the use of various
metallic disks and bands made marvel
lous cures of nervous diseases. The
theory was that each patient had a par
ticular affinity for some metal, and
several kinds were tried till the potent
one was found. The metal-cure had a
great run, both in this country and
England, but when by chance it was
found that bits of wood or anything
else could be made to exercise just as
much influence as the metals, the whole
thing fell into disrepute save in France,
where faith in its efficacy seems to have
obtained a strong foothold. Dr. Ham
mond was led to investigate the metal
cure by hearing that several of his pa
tients proposed visiting Europe to test
it on themselves. His investigation
shows conclusively that the metals
have no part whatever in the effects
produced, but that these are attained
simply through the power of one mind
upon another. Faitn on the part of
the patient, and the calm, persistent
suggestion of an idea by the operator,
are the conditions of success. Placing
a disk of metal upon the hand of one
of his patients, a girl of fifteen, Mr.
Hammond assured her that in a few
minutes her hand would be insensible
to pain. This came speedily to pass,
and the severe pricking of a needle
caused not .the slightest wincing.
Changing his metallic disk for another
the cfiila was told it would make her
hand very tender, and in a moment the
sensitiveness became so aoute that the
mere touch of the needle sufficed to
make her scream with pain. By the
use of a plate of rubber on the back of
the child's neck he made her imagine
the top of her head to be as hot as if
a burning coal had been placed there.
Other experiments were tried upon a
large, strong woman, at first unsuccess
fully, but by persistently suggesting
the effects sought, the doctorwas final
ly rewarded by attaining them. Of
course, the victims of these experi
ments were not allowed to know that
they were being imposed upon, but
were quietly assured in advance by the
doctor that he was possessed of a new
system of cure which was working
wonders abroad, and which he wished
to try himself. Without the aid of any
metallic plates or other appliances,
but through the same principle of the

When these daring spirits left Green
wich on that May-day 325 years ago,
amid crowds of courtiers, much shout
ing and firing of ordnance, with the
sage counsels of the venerable Sebas
tian Cabot to guide them in the con
duct of their expedition, they little
knew the dangers they had to face. In
deed, they had but an inadequate no
tion of the distance they had to sail, for
the north coast of the Old World was
believed to be only half as long as it
really is. For the greater part of the
expedition the result was disastrous
all on board the Bona Esperanza and
Bona Confidentia perished miserably
on the coast of Lapland. Richard
Chancellor, however, after pushing
northward for a considerable distance,
managed to effect a landing near the
site of Archangel, and made a journey
overland of 1,500 miles to Moscow,
where he was heartily welcomed by the
Muscovite Court.
In 1556 the attempt to discover a
northeast passage was renewed by
Stephen Burough, in the Searchthrift
pinnace, who succeeded in reaching the
Island of Waigatz. Another expedi
tion seems to have been sent out by the
Muscovy Company in 1568, with what
result is not known. We have no rec
ord of any other English expedition to
the northeast till 1580, when Arthur
Pet and Charles Jackman were sent
out in the George and William, and
succeeded in reaching the Kara Sea,
through the straight between the Island
of Waigatz and the mainland, now
known as that of Pet or Yugor. Here
they were so hampered with ice and
fog that they were compelled to return,
the George only reaching England, the
William never having been heard of
after leaving Drontheim in February,
1581. These fruitless attempts seem
to have satisfied the English merchants
that it was vain to attempt to reach
China and India by this route, and al
though Henry Hudson tried in vain to
reach the goal by sailing right across
the pole early in the seventeenth cen
tury and many subsequent attempts
were made to force a northwest pas
sage, no further serious effort has been
made by England to reach Eastern
Asia by the northeast. Indeed, so far
as we know, the only other Nation that
has since been bold enough to take up
the task is the Dutch, who, between
1594 and 1597, made three attempts,
with which the name of the unfortu
nate Barentz is connected. The first
expedition succeeded in passing the Isl
and of Waigatz and the last wintered
on the northeast coast of Nova Zembla,
where only quite recently their wooden
hut and many of their instruments and
utensils have been found in wonderful
preservation, after the lapse of nearly
300 years.—London Times.

One of the latest novelties is the re
vival of a lovely old material, which
was in high favor with our grand-gen
eration, and even perhaps a later gen
eration. This is muslin delaine. As
yet only one house in the city is enter
prising enough to offer it but from
private advices direct from Paris, the
fountain-head of fashion, I am informed
that mousselin de laine is the thing for
young ladies, and that, in regara to
colors, white is considered the most
elegant. Certainly there cannot be a
more satisfactory selection. Nothing
can be softer, more delicate than this
lovely fabric. It drapes exquisitely, in
close, clinging folds neither crushes
nor wrinkles, nor is affected by sea
breezes nor mountain air, and is a
dainty, girlish material. Though white
is regarded with most approbation, the
beautiful tints now in vogue are by no
means to be rejected. Those delaines
I have seen are beautiful, and show a
novel and delightful trimming. These
are borderings running along the edge
of the goods and in colors that corre
spond. The borders vary in width from
one and a half inches to a finger's
length. The delaines shown me where

dead white pale lavender and lilac the
most delicate blue, appearing almost
the shadow of a tint than the tint itself
then a faint green, of which there are
two shades, a greenish green and a pe
culiar sort of bronze or yellowish green.
The borders on each are exquisite. On
the white is one of gorgeous color.
Another style shows the rich, dull
blendings of Persian hues. Again, the
delicate green has a fine mosaic border
of scarlet and gold. These costumes
are very stylishly made, not a few in
classic designs, for which the material
is admirably suited. One, for in
stance, a dinner toilette for Newport,
has a very long, plain skirt, the back
being closely gathered at the belt
and falling in straight unconfined
folds. The front, from the knees
down, consists of rich, broad kilt pleats,
edged at the bottom by a border. This
shows waved lines of dark and very
pale green, over which is a fine and
very delicate network of gold. A row
of the same bordering edges the top of
the pleating, and pieces or ends of the
border piped with dark green silk fall
at intervals over the pleating. The
ends are about seven inches long, a
finger broad, and are pointed at the
end. There is a close-fitting basque
that below the belt is cut away in coat
style, and that hangs behind in a long,
square end, which near the bottom is
divided. Each end is gathered at its
termination and finished with an odd
but handsome bow made of the border
ing. The basque is cut in surplice at
the neck, and the sleeves are cut open
and slightly flaring. Large, round,

he escaped with a warning not to fall

Sentries and look-outs must be very
liable to fall asleep from the very na
ture of the monotonous pacing, and
this may in some degree account for
the facility with which sentries have at
times been surprised and secured be
fore they could give an alarm. In this
instance, the most curious fact, I think,
was the regularity with which the man
continued to pace his distance and turn

other instances of sentries and others
walking in their sleep, though the end*
has not always been so pleasant to the
victims. In one case the quarter-deck
sentry, in the middle of the night,
crashed down the ward room hatchway
with mnsket and fixed bayonet, with a
rattling that started us all out of our
cabins. The fellow fell on his back up
on the top of the mess-table, but not
much the worse for his exploit. On an
other occasion a messenger boy paid us
a visit in the night he fell upon a chair,
which he smashed to piects, but the
sleeper was unhurt.
These can hardly be considered true
cases of somnambulism, but show how
men may continue their occupation
when overcome by sleep. Nothing but
seeing his bayonet and keys lying on the
capstan could have ever convinced the
marine that he had been sleeping no
mere assertion to that effect would have
influenced him. T:
The Hog at the Paris Expostttm.
Among the dispatches from Paris
yesterday was one to the honor of an
animal often contemptuously spoken
of, viz., the hog. The American va
riety of that animal has come to great
glory at last. A New York house, dis
tinguished for the excellence of its
larcl, has erected a temple upon the Ex
position grounds. It is built entirely 1
of American wood, and within the!
sacred inclosure stands a stuffed Amer-1
ican hog—a masterpiece of taxidermy*
—with an American corn-cob in his
mouth. All about him are specimens
of snowy lard, extracted, perhaps,
from deceased members of the hog's
own family. Thus, if he were living,
though he might be sad, he would not
be lonesome. He is as respectfully re
garded, perhaps, as if he were an eagle
—more so, may be, for the French
have eagles of their own, but no hogs
to be compared with ours. It would
have been better to have shown him
alive and trained to sing "Hail Co
lumbia" in a deep, rich voice but that,
probably, was impossible. Beside, a
living hog would have been inconsist
ent with lard. It ought to be dis
tinctly understood .that he represents
lard only, and not any portion however
small of our American people. It
would be sad to have him mistaken for
an American office-seeker deceased.—

The man, although pacing and turning

Gen. Boet is charged
with the theft of the Collar of the
Golden Fleece from Don Carlos, and is
about to be put on his trial in Italy.
After commanding a regiment in Cuba,
where he is alleged to have extorted a
ransom from some insurgents and then
massacred them, he joined Don Carlos
in 1873, and a few days before the col
lapse of the rebellion became his Pri
vate Secretary, accompanying the Pre
tender to Paris and the East. Don
Carlos was thunder-struck on being
told who the culprit was, and wanted
to hush up the affair but the prosecu
tion had already been instituted. The
two brilliants at first missing have been
recovered, the total value of the collar
being £14,000.
