OTTAWA FREE TRADER; SATURDAY, AUGUST 11, 1877.
A Shopping Eiperlene In Constantinople. On the Very flrt occasion that we visited the bazaars together, A. proposed we should con ceal the fact that I could speak Turkish, and engage the services of a voungJew, who really spoke English very well, and see how far he would try to rob us. This we did, and soon settled ourselves down to imrchase from tin old Turk a very curious and handsome old Eng lish clock, by a celebrated" maker who had been dead some hundred years. The clock would not go, but it was easy to see there was not much the matter with it." Probably it had been a prescut from some Ambassador or rich merchant to some Pasha, and after being stopped iiml broken by the fingers of his in quisitive wives, had, perhaps, been stolen du ring some tire, and kept for years, until it was safe to expose it for sale. A. now tiddrcssd himself to the Jew interpreter: " Ask the old fellow how much he will take for the clock." Jew, in Turki.-li How much? Turk Twelve pounds. Jew to A. .Sixteen pounds, save. 'Offer him two pounds." Jew to Turk The Englishman olfers one pound; snvs it is all smashed up, and only wants it for the glass and hands the former for tin eye-glass, the latter for tooth-picks. Turk (with dignity) You lying U-ast. May your vile tongue blister your polluted mouth, and destrov you by slow starvation. Jew to A. He say, safe, 'cos he love me all same as him son, he let English Lord have clock for fourteen pounds. This was a little staggering for me, and my face must have betrayed me to the lynx-eyed j Israelite if I had not taken the opportunity and hunted a Ilea all round the inside of my sock. This kind of. bargaining went on for an hour, A. being made aware of the state of iillairs by me, while the Jew had gone to fetch us some codec. At last the Turk was beaten down till he asked two pounds, and the Jew said four pounds; aud then the villain's look of out raged innocence was worth anything, when I quietly said to the Turk in Turkish: "We will give you the two pounds, and hope to have a deal with you again another day, when we will not bring our friend here with us." In a moment the young Jew hail disappear ed. Ihirkly' " A lirrun the Ihinuhe iiml the lUa- k Sen." Was the Moon Always Dead ? Now that astronomers have almost by, unan imous consent accepted the doctrine of the de velopment of our system, which involves the belief that the whole mass of each member of the system was formerly gaseous withintensity of heat, they can no longer doubt that the mooii once had seas and an atmosphere of considera ble density. The moon has, in fact, passed through the same changes as our own earth, though not nccessarHy in the same exact way. she was once vigorous, as well as our ear.th, though not at the same 'time nor for so long a time. She was once glowing with intensity of heat, though this stage also must have contin ued for a much shorter period than the corres ponding stage of our earth's history. Must we not conclude that after passing ti trough that stage the moon was for a time .a habitable world as our earth is now 1 The greatest mass es of vapor antl of clouds which had girt our moon's whole globe, even as the youth of our earth her seas enwrapped her in cloud form, must at length have taken their plate as seas upon her surface. The atmosphere which sup ported those waters must at first have been dense compared with the present lunar atmos phere, perhaps, even by comparison with the present atmosphere of our earth. The glow ing surface of the moon gradually cooled, un til at length the moon must have been a lit abode for life. Hut whether when thus swept and garnished into fitness for habita tion, the moon actually became an inhabited world, is n question which will be variously answered according to our views respecting the economy of nature in this respect. Those who hold that nature makes nothing in vain. will need only to ask whether the support of lite is the one sole purpose which a planet can subserve; if that should appear probable, they would at once decide that the moon must, dur ing its habitable stage, have been inhabited. Others who, looking around at the workings ot nature as known to us, perceive, or think they perceive, that there is much which resem bles waste in nature, will be less confident on this point. They may reason that as of many seeds which fall upon the ground, scarce one subserves the one purpose for which seeds can be supposed to have been primarily intended, as many younglings of animals perish untime ly, as even many races and types fail of their apparent primaiy purpose, so our moon, and posilily many such worlds, may never came to subserve that one purpose for which the orbs peopling space can be supposed to have been formed, if purpose indeed reignsthrough out the universe.

It ha-. , i i our sky since 1st"), tlown in the S'Uit : Mars is daily inc not blazed so fieiv nor will he so shin for A'i year, as du ring the l ist days of the present month and the opening days of September. Moreover, du ring the time of his greatest splendor, his rays will be clo-ely conjoined with those of the ma lignant, planet Saturn, the greater In fortune, as Mars himself is the lesser Infortune, of the old astrological systems. For on the'Jlithof August the two planets are again in coiijunc. ttion as, they were on July 27, and as they will be once more this year, eirly in November. The end of August is a "good time to look for Mercery again, just after sunset. On the 31st he is at his .greatest, distance east of the Sun. and for a few days before and after that date may In- picked otit by a quick eve. Ye nils ha.s not yet distinguished herself as ;m evening star, but is slowly becoming more prominent. Jupiter is still in Sagittarius, slowly retrograding. n the Jith lie is station ary, preliminary to starting east once more. W'hh two eclipses on hand, the Moon may lie said to have enough to do. She will be near Spicaon the 1:5th and Ant.arcs on the Kith. She will approach Yeilus on the Pith, will pass Jupiter on the morning of the 1Mb, mid will Ihj in the company of Mars and Saturn early on the 2.1th.

Three shots brought the sharpshooter down, whea the scout (n turned perfectly cxhilerated. Trih'iht. I FARM ANJM3ARDEN. Dentistry on Horses. It U generally believed, even among the best horseman in the country, that glanders is quite prevalent among horses. Many a valuable an anal has been killed by direction of his ow,ner because of an offensive discharge from his nos trils, which has been considered as a sure indi cation that the horse is affected with that dreaded disease, glanders. The fact is, cases of glanders an' few and far between. CD. House, the veterinary dentist, says that in all his experience he has never known of but two cases, although he has known of hundreds of instances when horses have been killed be cause they were supposed to be affected with the disease. The whole trouble arises from neglect of the teeth. Yesterday Ml'. House operated upon the horses of the llaiiibletonian JJreeding Stud, Dr. Fhigg, ('. M. Dyer. Washburn & Yiiuirii. and W. li. Strong, pullingorcutting, or filingj the teeth ot nearly every animal he examined. In one of the horses' mouth the wolf teeth were found to be entirely covered by the gum, and detached from the law, so that every time the bit was moved in the horse's mouth these teeth were turned, crowded, and jammed in the gum, of course! causing the horse to jump and run. Another case was found where the grinders hail been worn rough iimf imeven. and were slightly displaced, so that the horse in eating was continually grinding away upon the inner lining of the mouth, keeping it. con stantly raw and painful, and of course making the beast cross and irritable. Still another case was where a colt's temporary teeth, utter being partially lorccd I mm this place hy the second teeth, 'had remained fastened by one fang, and in such a position as- to grind contin ually upon the gum while the animal was feed ing.'and yet so nicely had the decaying tooth been lodged that its presence was only detected by the oil'cnsive odor arising therefrom. Sev eral cases of inflammation of the" gums were found w hich were accounted for by the pres. ence of tartar on the front teeth, which was readily removed. Mr. House's operations yes terday were closely watched by a large number ot Horsemen, anil many who were uname to ac count for sensitive months in their own horses became satisfied that the trouble was with their teeth. The animals rather appear to like having their mouths worked upon, and Mr. House says he never had one attempt bite him. He runs his hands and arms into their mouths freely, and works away upon the sensitive parts without causing the horse to exhibit signs ol pain or uneasiness. Wo f (enter (Mtixx..) Spy.

A new drink to supply the place of gruel or barley water js recom mended by the tmrx f Indiii, "congee water, or the Honor in w hich rice has lieeii muled. l'his drink has three excellent, qualities it be comes impregnated with the properties ot the rice boiled in if, ami thus satisfies hunger; it quenches thirst, and is a capital draught in fe ver attacks; mid lastly, when taken warm in bed, it is good for bad colds and inlluenza. French polish for furniture can be made In putting ha !!':: i ounce of shellac, the same quan tity of gutnlae, and a quarter of an ounce of giun-sandarac, into a pin! of spirits of wine. Put them all together in a stone bottle near the tire, shaking it very often. As soon as the gums are dissolved It is ready for use. It is a mistake to wash glass tumblers, gob. lets, and the like in hot water; if cold lie used a brighter and clearer appearance is left when the glass is wiped dry. ft the glass is particularly soiled, a pinch of soda in the wat er will cleanse it easily. It is a fact not gcuerally known that the Au gust supply of rhubarb is the best for all pre serving purposes, as. grown during the heat of summer, it requires less sugar than the spring supply. lint should the summer have been a very dry one, the stalks are apt to become rath er hollow and stringy ; care should therefore be taken to select medium-sized stalks, brittle and full of juice. During this dry season, when the pastures crackle under the feet, is the time when the sowed corn can be made available as fodder for co.ws. It is folly to expect a full flow of milk to be maintained, by the best breed that was ever created, when the pastures are sere, and no addition is made to the feed that the cows can get from them. The amount of milk from any cow must hear some proportion tothe feed that she digests, and if there is a lack ofi fodder the flow of milk decreases. It pays to' have near the barn a good strong growth of sonic kind of green fodder, and corn is easily raised, of rank growth, and cattle cat it witii avidity. I'.eyond this, there is milk in it. ami all that is required is the medium of a cow for its ready conversion. Ihtrnit Free 1're.--:.
