A writer In the New York Y?Mu Time suggests, as a consoling thought during the long-continued dry weather, that the larva) of the dreaded ilessmn-ny will uo unable 10 nnu subsistence, and will consequently perish in in embryo or hi helpless infancy. The de struction maybe so complete as to free us from the pest fwr many years to come. That curious apple tree out in Jacob Kay. lor's orchard, four miles northwest of town, produced a pretty large crop of unusually large sour-sweet apples this season. Tho fruit remains the same every year, one half the ap. pie being sweet and the other sour. Air. Wm. Kaylor brought a specimen apple in for us to taste a day or two ago.

Each grain-covering has a long, bent bristle, or aim, ana with every change, whether to dry or damp, each one be gins to twist, or untwist; tho bent portions cross and come in contact with one another, and as tho motion goes on, a ierk takes place, and the oats are thrown to a distance of sever al inches, lu a succession of dry days and damp nights, these oats will travel a long dis tance American AyricuUnritt. "Brethren," said the Leadvillc clergyman, as he breathlessly entered tho pulpit twenty minutes late, "1 know I'm behind time. But here is my excuse. I had a tlush royal and Deacon i ork had four queens, and though he bet low I knew he'd put his entire pile in, and I couldn't bear to break up such a good thing by calling him. So I stayed and scooped his pile. Can you pardon mo for the delay?" And the congregation shouted "Aye!" and gave three cheers for the preacher, and then the services were begun. "Did you hear of that case up on Alarket street?" said Barber to Brewer, when they met at the post-ollice this morning. "No; what about it?" inquired Brewer, interested. "Why," said Barber, "a man lay there in tho house nine days before the family would bury him. Had the funeral yesterday." "By gracious," said Brewer, "that's an outrage. Why didn't they bury him before? superstition?" "No; not exactly that," and Barber slowly drew Brewer's ear down toward his mouth. "That wasn't it. He wasn't dead." , w Jieymcr. . Dwellers in the great cities can hardly ap preciate the amount of evil done by the long continued drought. In some portions of Penn sylvania, for instance, trees are dying, there Is no pasturage, farmers arc feeding their cattle with hay, the fall seeding has resulted some times in the grain sprouting and then wither ing away, nftener in the grain not germinat Ing at all. The earth is like an ash heap, and the outlook is most discouraging. The equi noctial storm is longed for heartily. We remember some years ago meeting Con gressman Hainey, a colored member from South Carolina; lie was an eloquent orator and had been Lieut. Governor of that state. He is now a dav laborer m the streets of Charleston and while thus at work the other day a garbago cart was dumped near him from which he picked out a copy of the Congress ional Record containing one of his own speech es on reconstruction. (reat are the vicissi tudes in the life of the politician. Ex. The question of the future petroleum supply is growing more and more interesting to Penn sylvaniaus. Kegions once spouting out abun dantly arc now strewn with ruined derricks over wells pumped dry. New sources of sup ply have hitherto been readily found in pluce of the drained reservoirs, but now the great Pennsylvania oil sponge appears to lie nearly squeezed. The Bradford region In AIcKcan county, tor instance, which pumps GO.OOO bar rels daily, and is the petroleum centre of the state, steadily failed during the month of Au gust at the average of 2,5()0 barrels dally. Dean liratlley and the Tramp. One story about the new Dean of Westrain stcr has not yet, I believe, found Us way into print. He was on one occasion slaving with the Arnolds, in Westmoreland, when a picnic was being celebrated. Lots were drawn as to who should stay at home and "mind the house," and the ofiice lell to Air. Bradley. On the return of the picnic party he remarked that "it was a good thing he had stayed behind, as a tramp had tried his best to pet in through the drawing-room window, and would have done so had it not been for him." The tramp, as most people endowed with imagination would have guessed, was the poet Wordsworth. The Arclibislion ot Cologne had a curious experience in an examination of children : "Is the sacrament of confirmation necessary to salvation ?'' he inquired of a boy. "No, Alonsignor," responded the lad; "but when there is an opportunity of receiving it we should not lose it." "Well said," replied the prelate. Thrn turning to a girl, he asked if the sacrament of matrimony was necessary to salvation. "It is not," was the quaint reply, "but when the occasion arises it should not be lost." CniLPREN-, Half Prick. Uncle Alose rents out sevaral shanties on Austin avenue to col ored tenants, some of whom exhibit a hesitan cy about paying their rent A few mornings since an ebon-hueil boy of auuui nine years, me son oi one ol .Hose s tenants, brought him four dollars. "Your fodder owes eight dollars, boy. Whaf for you only fotch me "foah dollars ? Whar's de udder halt ob de rent?" "Dat's de berry reason he done send me wid de money." "What's de reason f "Bekase." "Bekase what, you little fool oiggab ?" "Bekase childrnns nebber pays more den half price," sobbed the boj.Siftingt. Titct, History, it is said, reptats Itself so do stories. "Pshaw!" exclaims some learned man, as he sees in the morning paper a fresh anecdote, "I read that lifty years ago, and it was then ancient." Perhaps he did, and yet the anecdote may bo true as told, though not singular. The critic should remember l lie rule, as true ol men as ot mechanics, mat line causes under similar circumstances always produce the same effects. Some years ago a story went the rounds, which told how one of the keepers of the Dart ford Insane Asylum saved his life by his ready wit. The keeper had taken a patient, sup posed to have been cured, to tho roof of the Asylum. While they were enjoying the mag nificent prospect, the patient, who was a large man, seized the keeper's arm. "Let us jump down and surprise the folks be low !" he said. The keeper, seeing that the man had suf fered a relapse, cooly replied, "Nonsense! any lool can jump down. Let's descend and jump up. That'll astonish them." "Won't that bo jolly! Come along," an swered the patient, thrown of his guard. Be fore could try the feat, ho wus securely con fined. Now, a similar story, with different details, however, is told of Sir Thomas Alore, the eood Lord Chancellor whose head Henry VX11. look off. Ho was seated one day on tho roof of his house, when a madman suddenly ap peared at his side. "Leap, Tom.leap!" he shouted, seizing Alore by the shoulder. Looking him calmly in the eye, the Lord Chancellor said, "Let us first throw my little dog down, and see what sport that will be." In a moment the dog was tumbled over the parapet. "Good!" said Alore, with feigned delight, "now run down, fetch the dog, and we'll throw him oil again." The maniac ran down, and Alore summoned his servants to secure him. Crime anil ItH l'linlHliinent. The laws of Illinois require the criminal and charitable statistics of tho State to be thoroughly kept, and by the several county authorities transmitted to the State Board of Charitivfl. It is then tho business of that Board to so tabu la to them that they may be ol use to the people in arriving at solutions of the various social problems. Tc have heretofere spoken of the excellent report which Air. Sec retary Wines made to tho last Legislature, and also to the deficiencies caused by tho failure of various county ofllcers to properly discharge the duties imposed upon them by the law in sending reports. In endeavoring to look up some statistics in this report relative to the punishment of murder, we find the statistics of Lake aud Cook counties entirely wanting. As Cook is the great centre ot Illinois crime of this kind, the lack of her statistics will render the results the more forceful in their lesson ; yet we hope meostires will be taken in the future to secure reports from these two counties, that full information may be in the hands of those who wish to examine the social statistics of I'linois. A cursory examination of the criminal re turns for the ninety-nino counties returning will give a very perceptible clue to the cause of tho public feeling which so violently and disgracefully swept over portions of the State last week. Under the head of the more hein ous crimes they show as follows: During the year, in these ninety-nine coun ties, there were (10 persons arraigned for man slaughter. Of these 10 were sentenced to an aggregate punishment of 04 years. During the same period 18U persons were arraigned for murder, and SI sentenced. Of these li were to the death penalty ; 8 to prison for life, aud 23 to an aggregate imprisonment of 852 years; or if probable good time is de ducted," 271) years. Wo have, therefore, the following aggregate sentences for the taking of 240 lives in Illinois (exclusive ot Cook and Lake counties) in one year: death 3; imprisonment (counting life it . i seiueuci's years uucu unu ueuuciiiig goou " lc'ltime") 300 years. . - - . r- . 1 . . i . 1 Two hundred and forty-six lives taen, and but three sentenced (not executed; upon the principle that he w ho takes human lite forfeits his own. Aurora Xars. Verinlii-I'rnuf I'miltry Ilouae. If it were not for the countless thousands of lice, mites and other parasites, as well as the rats and weasels, which require the constant care and attention of tho poultry breeder to avert losses, the breeding of poultry would be a comparatively easy t.-isK, although it would then be less profitable, for the lazy breeders could raise aud market almost as many eggs and fowls as could those who aro able and will ing to give the birJs that care and atteution which they now must have to msure profit. Alany are the ways and means devised to circumvent these pests of the poultryman; some being effectual, provided they are per sisted in, while others utterly fail to accom plish the much desired object. When these pests, these insect enemies of poultry, once gain possession of house and fow ls alike, it is a work of time and patience to dislodge them entirely, and far more trouble than to use measures at first to prevent them coming, for preveutiou is far better and far cheaper than euro in this case. When the breeder can afToid it it is a good plan to have the poultry-house lathed and plastered smoothly on the inside, and then fre quent applications of whitewash will serve generally to keep them from coining to stay, tor the smooth surface of tho walls offers no crevices for their lodgement. Such a house, too, is warm and comfortable in winter and cool in summer. When the expense deters breeders from adopting the above plan, it is a good and cheap substitute to line the entire side of the house with tarred paper, which Is manufactured es-' penally for building purposes, and can be had and put on cheaply! This should be treated to frequent coatings of tar, which isvervdis tasteful to vermin and very healthy to fowls. As far as preventing the appearance ofiice nnu mnes, mis larreu paper or iciting ' is ahead of anything else we know of at present, while it has the advantage of Icing cheap and readily applied by any ons. It gives a smooth finish to the interior of the houses, though many object to the dark color as well as to the smell of the tar. Be that as it may, Its great usefulness should overcome such tri fling objections to those of a practical turn of mind. We would here remark that old and foul nests and nesting boxes are regular hot beds ofiice and vermin, and no careful breed- er will permit such evidences of slothfulness : tlie courage he displayed on several trying oc and neglect to find room about his premises.

A Iyfipsig journal devoted to the glass inter est states that the cracking of lamp chimneys may be prevented by placing them in a pot filled with cold walcr, adding a little cooking salt, and after the mixture has been allowed to boil well over a fire to have the articles cool slowly. Treated in this way glass will be found to resist cracking, even if exposed to very sudden changes of temperature, and the chimneys become very durable by passing through such an operation. The process is, in deed, simply one of annealing, and it results that the slower the operation is carried on, es pecially the cooling portion of if, the more ef fective will be the work.

Mary's Vale is a beautiful valley through which the clear, swift and deep Sevier Kiver flows. It contains a mining camp, and is the homo of General Agramoute, one ot tho most noted characters ol Utah. The saints call him "Big Windy," In ridicule of his remarkable conversational powers. Just previous to my arrival an attempt had been made to assassin ate him. Three shots were fired at him from the bushes ot the Sevier Klver, none of which look eflect. He returned the fire with a Sharp's rifle, and on the following day a wounded saint was found being carefully cared for in a neighboring village. Tho General married Airs.

He claims direct descent from a famous Castil lauklng; ke served on the stall' of a Union general during tho war; has adventured some in Alexico and was for years actively and prom inently identified with the Cuban rebellion. 1 had heard much ot him in my travels, and when I saw him enter tho room where I sat and place a carbine and double-barrelled shot gun in a coi ner, remove a belt holding a navy revolver and a Bowie knife and slip a silver mourned Derringer In his hip pocket, I knew that I was in tho presence of General Agra monte. Accompanying him were two beauti ful boys, ten or twelve years of age, grandsons of the Prophet. I never passed a more agree ablo evening. As a wit, story teller, tainilc and eloquent narrator oexeiting events 1 have rarely seen his equal. He speaks Kuglish, Spanish, French and German with equal llu eney, and "sets a table in a roar" as naturally as though laughing were the chief business of all mankind. 1 could not tiring myself to he lieve that ho w.is of Spanish descent. After he had retired for tho night a short conversation occurred on this point. ( )iu gentleman thought he was an Englishman, another thought he was a Dane. The third said : "Gentlemen, I remember reading an incident in one of Marry att's novels. A finely uniformed officer was pacing the quarter deck with great dignity, wheu a sailor, who had fallen from the mast head, struck the deck immediately behind him. 'Where the did you come from?' Inquired the officer, with some asperity. 'From tho North of Ireland, yer Honor,' was the prompt reply. That is my opinion of Agra moute. I believe that he came from the North of Ireland. He is certainly one of the shrewd cst,wittiest men m Utah." .Sif Franc Urn J'nnt The Way 1'late Glass ih Mail To cast, roll, polish and burnish plate glass requires machinery of peculiar construction, and a "plant" that is costly by reason of its complex nature. The pouring of the liquid glass from the furnace upon the cast iron plates, and subsequent rolling, are processes comparatively simple. Any housekeeper who has used a rolling pin upon a batch of pie crust dough performs an operation very simi lar to this stage of plate glass making. It is the succeeding processes of grinding and pol ishing and final burnishing that require time and costly mechanism. After leaving the rolls and bed plate the glass is rippled and rough, and only fit for gratings and skylights. Each plate must be transferred to machines that re semble the turn tables of a railway. On that revolving platform the glass is cemented into a bed of plaster of Paris and the machine started. Bearing heavily on the surface of the glass are blocks of metal aud which in motion the surfaces are kept supplied with sharp sand and a constant stream of water. Tho next stage of the glass-grinding process is the same as to machinery, but instead of sand coarse em ery is used. The finer emery is used in anoth er revolving table, and so on for half a dozen times. The final polishing is done by heavy reciprocating devices fed with rouge, and maintaining a constant backward and for ward motion, and also lateral movement over the surface of the crystal. All this requires the assistance of a large force of men, many of them skilled laborers. After going through these different grindings and polishing, the plate that measured an inch in thickness is only three quarters of an inch thick, has lost all its roughness, and is ready for the show window of tho purchaser, PitUburyh Tele jraph. " .Mini nit mlmliKtio Draw in jr. A case of somnambulism, which, according to the statements furnished to the Iterahl, would appear to be worthy of expert investiga tion, is that of a little boy of fourteen, Alartin Frobischer by name, the boy's father is a teacher ot elocution and acting and says that little Alartin, who has been from his earliest boyhood in the habit of rising in the middle of the night in a somnambulistic state, has be come greatly fascinated with the study of draw ing, for which he shows marked talent. This study has taken such an intense hold of the boy's mind that he rises in the night in a com pletely unconscious state and will continue to work on an unfinished piece of drawing with as much skill as though he were awake. The other night he got up and drew a head, from a cast which ho had drawn on paper during the previous day, on the wall of his chamber. Last winter he caught a serious cold trom sitting up during the night In his nightshirt engaged up on his usual absorbing pursuit, and next morn ing his mother tound him w ith a decided still ness of tho knees. "1 can understand," the lather said, "how a somnambulistic subject cau go through certain mechanical motions, but it is inconceivable to me how the boy is able to draw with such perfect attention to ev ery detail to put expression into mi eye, fur instance, and spirit into a face." He exhibited some very clever drawings by the boy, partial ly done, as he declared, while the little fellow was in this remarkable condition. When asked whether it was a hereditary tendency in the family he said that his own brother the boy's uncle had been subject to it, and, strange to say, Alartin's youngest brother was now catch ing the infection of nocturnal escapades. The boy is a bright, good looking little fellow, who appears to be thoroughly sound but ha evi dently somewhat suffered from confinement and overstudy. Ho was closely questioned, but could not be got to say anything except that he was utterly unconscious. if what he had done in the nights in which he had been up until he saw his drawings next morning on the table or on the wall. The father hopes that thecaM- w ill have the light of a scientific in vestigation, as he says it is a great mystery to him and the entire family. A'. )'. Jf ra 'il.
