"The paper says that they've caught the fellow that has been breaking into so many houses in this part of the town late ly," said cousin Jennie, one morning, as ve sat at the breakfast-table. It's a pity he had not come here so that you couhl have added another laurel to your crown, mother, by capturing iiim. Wouldn't it have been splendid if it had happened so? The family would have been famous. I should have been intro duced in society as daughter of Mrs. Van Stratum, the celebrated burglar-catelicr, and borne the honor with becoming meek ness and satisfaction. Did mother ever tell you about catching that awful thief and probable murderer, Toby Darrell, years :igo, before any of us appeared on the stage of action?" "No, 1 never heard anything about it," I answered. "Please'' tell me about it Aunt Annie." "I've told it so many times," answered aunt Annie, "that I've got rather tired of it, but 1 suppose you won't let me oil'." Aunt Annie smiled across the table at me in a kind of self-satisfied way that assured me that she was quite as willing to tell me the story as I was to hear it. Like all the rest of us aunt Annie was probablv a trifle proud of having done a heroic deed. "It happened a year after your Uncle George and I were married. We had just begun housekeeping here, when the neigh borhood began to be troubled over the irequent depredations of some person or persons whom it was impossible to obtain any cine of. House after house was broken into, and money, jewelry and plate were taken. The police wereCalled upon, and detectives were put upon the alert, but to no purpose. The officers de cided that the thefts were the work of an old desperado, called Toby Darrell one of the worst cases in the whole list of vil lains with whom they had to deal, and one of the most expert and careful. He had been suspected of murder, and dozens of other crimes had been traced to him, but so successful was he in eluding the offi cers of justice that they had succeeded but twice in arresting hini, and on both of these occasions he had managed to es cape. So frequent had his thefts become, and so daring, that at last a heavy reward was offered for his arrest. One day George had to go out of town, and I was left alone with grandfather Van Stratton, who had come to spend a few days with us. I didn't know where the two servants we kept had gone to. 1 drew down the curtain, as the dusk settled in the streets, and put some fresh coals on the fire, and sat dottn in our little sitting l'ooin with a new book, while grandfather busied himself over his newspapar. In this way, with occasional remarks, the evening passed off when the clock struck nine grandfather declared that he was so sleepy that he was going to bed, after w :ieh declaration of intentions he took out his big silver snuff-box and took a pinch of that fiery Scotch snuff he used to be so fond of, and, on closing it, instead of putting it back into his pocket, he set it down on the little table at my elbow, and proceeded to warm his feet before go ing off to bed. I noticed his putting the box on the table, and supposed he would ihink of it before going to bed. But, after he had said good night and left me, I saw that he had left his snuff-box behind him. I took it up and opened it out of idle cu riosity, and the faintest scent of its con tents set me into a paroxysm of sneezing, and brought tears to my "eyes. "The room was warm and cozy, and my book was very interesting, and*! con cluded that I would read on for an hour longer before going to bed. I don't know how long I did read, but it couldn't have been long, for the clock striking eleven woke me. I woke as people occa sionally do, quietly and completely, without stirring or "seeming to wake. The first thing that I became conscious of was that there were steps in the room, and they were stealthy, sinister ones. My face was turned from the fire as I lay back in my chair, and was in partial shadow. I remember of thinking, in a quick kind of logical reasoning, that didn't trouble itself about syllogisms, that I could open mv eyes a trifle without betraying the fiict that I wasn't asleep, and discover who and what my visitor was. I was frightened, but felt that it was tlif safest way for me to appear fast asleep. I opened my eyes softly, and saw a man standing about six feet "from me. with the flickering lire shining full into his face, and it was the worst and most brutal face I ever loked into in all my life. It was with difficulty that I kept from screaming out, and I often dream of seeing that man now, and always as I saw him then, stand ing in the red firelight, whose fitful play lit up his face with the look of a demon, watching me with his cruel, tigerish eyes. He had a sack slung over his shoulder, and 1 understood at once that he had been through the lionsc and plundered it of everything worth his while to take. You know that your uncle George and I began housekeeping in a modest way we had to, for he was working on a salary in those days, and after paying for the house, we didn't have a great deal left to purchase other things with. You can readily understand, then, how angry it made me to sec that great, brutal fellow standing there with his sack full of arti cles whose value represented months of hard work. I have often wondered at it since, but the feeling of indignation wa& so intense as to almost overcome my fear and prudence. But I knew from the devil in his eye that he would not hesitate at any crime that he might be provoked to for his own safety, and I think I never stirred a muscle. But, oh! I wished I might cry out for help, and have the wretch given up to the punishment he so richly deserved! "Suddenly his eyes caught sight of grandfather Van Stratton's silver snuffbox, standing on the table at my side, and he tiptoed toward it. I had not closed it when I put it down. The lid was open in such a way that the light reflected on it brightly, and that was what had caught Jus attention. My arm lay on the side of my chair, and my hand was resting on the table so near to the box that when he leaned over and reached down to get it, his fingers touched mine. I could not help a shiver at the touch, but he did not detect it. He liftei the bos from the table and It TT~~T held it up close to his face to examine its contents. I don't know how I came to do it, but I never stopped to think what the possible consequences might be—I flung up my hand, and the fiery snuff flew into his eyes in a yellow cloud, blinding him instantly. lie gave a howl of agony and rage, and made a dash toward me, but I eluded him. The snuff got into his nose and mouth, and lie began sneezing and couching frightfully, and tears kept run ning down his cheeks. His -exhibition of pain was intense. It seemed to make him crazy. He ran about the room like a mad animal. I slipped out of the room, locked the door, and ran up to call grandfather Van Stratton. But he had heard the racket go. inr on below, and was coming down the stairs. I told him what I hail done, and he ran out after help, and was back in at most no time with some of the neighbors. "It was easy to secure the burglar in the condition he was in. They bound him sccurely, and took him off to the station house. It was frightful to hear him curse aud rave as they led him away. In the morning I heard that I had been the means of capturing the very person the police had been in search of so long— Toby Darrell. They offered me the re ward, but I wouldn't take it and so they made me a present of a beautiful set of silver. That spoon you have in your cup is one of them. I was half sick for a week after the affair took place, but I con cluded there wasn't any use in being sick over what danger was passed, and got over my fright bravely. And Toby Darrell got a dozen years in Sing Sing." Tweed's Arrival In Cuba. A Herald reporter, ascertaining yester day that a merchant of this city* well known in the Cuban trade, had received let ters from William M. Tweed, paid him a visit. When questioned, the merchant ad mitted that he had received a letter from John Secor, that Secor was Tweed, and that the letter had been written in Cuba under promise that his name would not be di vulged. The gentleman gave the follow ing" interesting and graphic details of Tweed'? movements in Cuba: Tweed was landed on a rocky promon tory about ten miles from Santiago de Cuba by a boat which took him ashore from an American yacht. I have also heard that the vessel which landed him on the Cuban coast was bound, for Jamaica. This, however, is imma terial. Here, much fatigued and ex hausted, Tweed was discovered by a fish erman, who volunteered to conduct him to Santiago de Cuba, and they marched along over the rocky paths lead" ing to the city. Tweed was accompanied by a man named Hunt, who, if I mistake not, was a coachman for a long time in the service of Tweed, and was noted for his fidelity and honesty. Well, Tweed, owing to his heavy weight, had much difficulty in walking to the city of Santia go. He was terribly sunburnt, his face being as brown as a berry and very much blistered. The fisherman who accompa nied them received a gold ounce" for his trouble, and led the wandering pair, not to a hotel, but to police headquarters, llad Tweed and his follower been discov ered by the Spanish troops on the beach tliev would undoubtedly have been shot, alter a drumhead court-martial, as Amer ican filibusters just landed from Jamaica, en route for Cuba Libre." I cannot tell you what date this was, as my letter does not give it. The police authorities not being satisfied with the fisherman's explanation, or Tweed's state ment, naturally made in English, that lie was an American citizen, sent him and Hunt on board the Spanish man-of-war stationed in the harbor as prisoners. Tweed and Hunt were accordingly marched off to the vessel and there de tained. When on board, Tweed sent for the United States Consul at Santiago de Cuba, Mr. Young (who is now in this country, either at Philadelphia or Wash ington), aud demanded the protection due tolm American citizen. Mr. Young, who is a fine fellow, instantly interested himself in the case, and took into his counsel Mr. Ramsden, the Brit ish Consul. Tweed's passport was found to be in order as "John Secor," likewise that of his companion in exile, Hunt." Their release was formally de manded and granted, and Tweed took up his residence at the Hotel de Shy, kept by Madame Adelia under police surveillance. Here he lived very quietly. Meanwhile Consul Young entertained a suspicion that there was something wrong about "Secor" in spite of his passport being en regie. Telegrams passed frequently between him and United States Consul General Hall at Havana. Tweed, feeling that he was looked upon with suspicion, was restless to be off, aud engaged a passage in the bark Carmen, bound for Vigo and Barcelona. Tweed, through not having his passport vised by the Spanish authorities on the 22(1 of July, caused the Carmen to be detained till the 2(th, he paying demurrage for the delay. The night before his departure Mr. Young telegraphed to Consul-General Hall at Havana that it was William M. Tweed who was using the name of Se cor," but the dispatch arrived too late at Havana. Mr. Hall immediately took a carriage and went out of town for a dis tance of eight miles to find Capt.-Gen. Jovelbtr to ask hiiu to scud an order to detain Tweed, alias Secor. The dispatch was sent but arrived too late, the Carmen having sailed. The authorities, however, both at Santiago de Cuba and Havana, were made acquainted with the facts in the case, and the news was consequently telegraphed over to Madrid. The rest you know. —N. Y. Herald. On Chiniborazo. Prof. James Orton, of Vassar College, has twice visited the equatorial Andes and the Amazon River, and written a very readable book thereon, from which the following graphic passages are taken There must be something singularly sublime about Chiniborazo, for the spec tator, at Riobaniba, is already !),000 feet high, and the mouatain is not so elevated above him as Mont Blanc above the vale of Chamouni, when, in reality, that cul minating point of Europe would not reach up even to the snow limit of Chimborazo by 2,000 feet. It is only while sailing on the Pacific that one sees Chimborazo in its complete proportions. Its very magni tude diminishes the impression "of awe and wonder, for the Andes on which it rests are heaved to such a vast altitude above the sea, that the relative elevation of its summit becomes reduced by com parison with the surrounding mountains. Its altitude is 21,420 feet, or forty-five times the height of Strasburg Cathedral or, to state it otherwise, the fall of one pound from the top of Chimborazo would raise the temperature of water thirty de grees. One-fourth of this is perpetually covered with snow, eo that its ancient name, Chimpurazu—the mountain of snow—is very appropriate. It is a stir ring thought that this mountain, now mantled with snow, once gleamed with volcanic fires. There is a hot spring on the north side, and an immense amount of debris covers the slope below the snow limit. The valleys which furrow the flank of Chimborazo are in keeping with its colos sal size. Narrower, but deeper than those of the Alps, the mind swoons and sinks in the effort to comprehend their majesty. The mountain appears to have been broken to pieces like so much crust, and the strata thrown on their vertical edges, revealing deep, dark chasms ttfkt seem to lead to the confines of the lower world. The deepest valley in Europe, that of the Ordesa in the Pyrenees, is 3,200 feet deep, but there are rents in the side of Chimborazo in which Vesuvius could be put away out of sight. As you look down into the fathomless fissure, you see a white fleck rising out of the gulf, and expanding as it mounts, till the wings of the condor, fifteen feet in spread, glitter in the sun as the proud bird fearlessly wheels over the dizzy chasm, and then, ascending above your head, sails over the dome of Chimborazo. Could the condor speak, what a glowing description could he give of the landscape beneath him when his horizon is a thou sand miles in diameter.. The silence is absolute and actually op pressive. The road from Ouayaquail to Quito crosses Chimborazo at the elevation of 14,000 feet. Save the rush of the trade wtod in the afternoon, ft sweeps 9*9* the Andes, not a sound is audible not the hum of an insect, nor the chirp of a bird, nor the roar of the puma, nor the music of running waters. Mid-ocean is never so silent. You can almost hear the globe turning on its axis. There was a time when the monarch deigned to speak, and spoke with a voice of thunder, for the lava on its sides is an evidence of volcanic activity. But ever since the morning stars sang together over man's creation Chimborazo has sat in sullen silence, satisfied to look from his throne of clouds o'er half the world." There is something very sugges tive in this silence of Chimborazo. It was once full of noise and fury, it is now a completed mountain, and thunders no more. The reason we are so noisy is that we arc full of wants, we are unfinished characters. Had we perfect fullness of all things, the beatitude of be ing without a want, we should lapse into the eternal silence of God. Cotopaxi (18,880 feet) is slumbering now, but it is in a state of solemn and thoughtful suspense." It gives out deep rumbling thunders, and a cloud of smoke rises from the crater at the top. Some times at night this smoky column looks like a pillar of fire. Imagine Vesuvius on the summit of Mount Blanc, and you have the altitude of Cotopaxi—most beau tiful and most terrible of volcanoes. From the summit of Antisania, another of these lordly mountains, higher than Cotopaxi, enormous streams of hardened lava descended—the testimony of terrible convulsions and eruptions in earlier ages. One of these lava streams is ten miles long and 500 feet deep!—with an average slope of fifteen degrees. It is a magnifi cent sight, as seen from the surrounding Paramo—a stream of dark ragged rocks coming down out of the clouds and snows which cover the summit." Bottled Bnmble*Bees. No man can tell when a boy of nine or ten years is going to break out in a new spot. A Cass farm lad, who has been noted for his quiet demeanor and steady ways, all at once took a notion to hunt bumble-bees. He armed himself with a wide-mouthed bottle and tramped over lots and fields and entrapped many a luck less stinger. After securing them he had no further pleasure except to see them crawl up and down the sides of the bottle and whack their stingers into each other. He was out early yesterday morning, gath ering in the bees while they were be numbed, and when lie entered the house for breakfast he had about thirty great, overgrown, wicked-looking bumble-bees. They were packcd into the bottle heads and tails and other ways, and the father, catching sight of them, spoke up: "Sec here, boy, I don't want any more of this fooling around after bees. After breakfast you heave that bottle out doors, and don't bring another bee around this house." The boy placed the bottle behind the dining-room stove. There was a gentle fire, and the bottle had no cork. The family had got through with the first cup of coffee, when they heard something going: Jing—ring—ding—ong—long—rong cr.cr-o•P, e The fire warmed the bees up, and they left the bottle to warm the family up. It was a business affair, and the bees went in to do their best. The boy slid out at the first alarm, but the old folks flourished their napkins until sliding out would have done no good. The old gent got a sting on his left car and another on his head at the same second, while the old lady was punctured in the shoulder and yelled Murder!" with all her might. "Maul—maul eui!" shouted the old gent, waving the butter dish around and getting another needle into his neck. "Police! Police!" squealed the old lady, diving under the table as a big bee settled on the lobe of her ear. It was a very even fight for a while, but then the man got down cellar, and the woman flew for a bed-room, the one's deep bass voice shouting: "Gimme the camphor, Betsy!" and the other squeak ins out- If you love me go for a doc tor!" No one knows what became of the boy. He is reported as missing. Seated under the swaying head of some stunted thorn tree on the commons, he looks longingly toward home, but he realizes that his re ception will be red-hot.—Detroit Free Press. An Astonishing Egg Story. It is very well known that John W. Corning is Sergeant-at-Arms of the New York State Senate. Last winter he at tended the session of the Legislature for the first time, and though almost con tinually absent from home, he, with the assistance of his accomplished wife, dis covered a new and wonderful process for producing chickens from eggs without artificial heat or the kindly ministrations of the parent hen. Mrs. Corning, know ing well John's partiality for toothsome cakes, and the many dishes of which eggs form a part, prepared to greet him with a good dinner every time he camc home. In order to carry out her designs, it be came necessary to have fresh eggs, and therefore during the fall a large quantity was packed away in salt, and carefully placed in a dry part of the cellar. From time to time during the winter the eggs were taken out and used. The long con clave of Ihe Senate, without a holiday, just before its adjournment, kept John some time from home, and it was resolved to keep the rest of the eggs until he came to stay, there being no fatted calf in the neighborhood. Finally he came, and with him news of a final adjournment of the session. The eggs were then brought forth, but on examination it was found that nature had been at work in the salt, aud had made some advance toward incuba tion, quite enough to render the eggs unfit for culinary^purposes. As the season then was becoming quite warm and house cleaning was in order, the debris which had accumulated during the winter, in cluding the eggs which were left, were sent away and deposited on the east side of a highway running out of the village, between the canal and creek bridges. Here, amid coal ashes, the contents of straw beds and other accumulations the eggs were left and thought no more of for the time being. But there was life in that mass, as will be seen. Close adjoining this place of deposit Mr. Tappenden, who lives at the south end of the canal bridge, milks his cows, and one morning while so engaged heard a chicken crying, the cry coming from the rubbish. On going there he found a little fellow calling for his dough, which he took home and fed. A few mornings after he found several more, ana for a week there after went regularly to the place and carried away newly-liatclied chick ens, until he had procured a large brood, nearly all of them doing well. There was a mystery about the case, and only last week the real truth came to light. Mr. Tappenden has now a fine flock of spring chickens, and he told the writer that he expected to take the premium at the fair next week on artificial hatching, though he said the honor proper ly belonged to John W. ter (N. Y.) Express.

The Elko Independent says of their ravages "Some weeks since a rancher in the valley, who lias a water-ditch around his place, harvested a crop of 450 bushels of crickets by driving them into the water and scooping them into a sack. Wc considered that rather a solid cricket story, but from Bull Run Basin we learn that it is a common thing for them to eat up all the woolen clothes they can get hold of, and artistically pile the'buttons in one place, arranging them in rows according to size. On one occa sion a resident of the latter place got "full" and lay down on the side of the mountain to sun. In about an hour his friends instituted a search for hitti, and found him bleaching in the sun with nothing but a paper collar to protect him from the heat. The crickets had eaten off all his clothes, even to his boots." Baggage-Smashing. The manner in which travelers' baggage is handled at most of our railway stations is a disgrace to the railway system of which we boast so much and in general so justly. It will fill any impartial specta tor with indignation to stand near the baggage-room in almost any depot in this and other cities as a train is being made up or unloaded, and witness the reckless if not intentionally destructive way in which trunks, large and small, without respect to character, condition or contents, are thrown from car to platform, or from truck to car, or from store-Yoom to truck, with a waste of muscular power in giving them the customary height and velocity such as is rarely exhibited by laborers in any other calling. If the baggage-han dlers were paid by their companies ac cording to the number of trunks which they dashed to pieces or damaged, they could hardly show more zeal and success ful devotion to that end than they do now. So common is this abuse in the handling of passengers' property that the long-suf fering American has accepted it as inevi table, and tries to make the best of it by jocular remarks. The newspapers also at frequent intervals contain humorous allu sions to the evil. One praises the skill with which an accomplished baggage-man will crack open a trunk at a single throw. Another tells about the consternation and grief of baggage-hurler on finding among the arrivals a trunk made of boiler iron, heavily riveted and iron-bound, bearing the defiant inscription, "She'll stand it." Another announces a forth coming tournament of baggage-smashers, pt which a prize offered by trunk-makers for the most expert smashing is to be con tended for. The subject, however, is too serious for a joke. It is no joke to recklessly and wantonly destroy or injure the property of a confiding traveler it is a barbarous and brutal act for which no excuse what ever can be given. It takes no more time and strength to lift a trunk and set it carefully down than it does to hurl it high in the air and propel it violently to its destination. There is abundance of time, especially at our great terminal sta tions, where these abuses are most com mon, for the proper handling of baggage. No train will move until the baggage is all taken on or unloaded, and the smasher cannot make a claim of necessity for his barbarity. An express company will car ry a box of eggs 1,000 miles without cracking a shell a baggage-smasher will frequently knock off the hinges of a trunk, break the lock, split the bottom and smash every fragile article of its contents on the trip from baggage-room to car. It is high time that our railroad super intendents took summary steps to reform this evil. The property of passengers should be as sacred as their persons. A railroad employe lias no more right to break a passenger's trunk needlessly than to smash his hat or tear his coat. This mistreatment of baggage is never seen upon European railways. There the rail way employe is the servant rather than the master of tiie traveler, and treats him and his property with civility. If a lug gage man handles a trunk with unneces sary roughness lie is pretty sure to be warned by a uniformed official, and if he repeats the offense he gets his walking papers. Wc do no not mean to say that all American baggage-men are guilty of the abuses complained of. There are many creditable exceptions, but no one will deny the general truth of this picture, and our railway officials should at once put a stop to these outrages, as they can easily do, by a little exercise of their authority. Let the baggage-smasher be reformed or abolished from the American railway sys tem. He has disgraced it too long.— Railway Age. Daily Habits of Victor Emmanuel. A gentleman who signs himself "Fcr ruccio" has seen fit to supply the French public with some details concerning the daily life of the King of Italy. It would appear that His Majesty is an early riser, generally getting up at five o'clock in the morning, when he takes a cup of black coffee and a stroll in the garden. At eight, on Thursdays and Sundays, the King presides over the Council of Minis ters, the council usually lasting an hour. Afterward, Victor Emmanuel grants the audiences he may have promised. At twelve one is glad to learn that His Maj esty breakfasts, though but lightly—" his only serious repast" being supper. At state banquets it is well known that the King never touches a mouthful, but sits immovable, with his two hands on the hilt of his sword, talking to his neighbor, who is thus condemned to lose his own dinner as well but the charm of His Maj esty's conversation and the exquisite urbanity of his manner are held to be am ple compensation for so slight an incon venience. Victor Emmanuel lias gradually accus tomed himself to pass the greater part of the winter in Rome but he seldom occu pies the Quirinal. According to the Sig nor Ferruccio," he had not been long in that palace before he discovered a trap door in his bedroom. It communicated with a vast gallery, in which the King and his attendants walked for twenty min utes without finding. n outlet. It seemed, however, to lead toward the castle of St. Angelo. His Majesty declined to inves tigate the mailer, and ordered the trap door to be bricked up. Soon alter ward he discovered a secretdoor in the wall, which communicated with a narrow staircase leading up to the roof. It, too, was bricked tip, but since this second discov ery we are informed that whenever His Majesty sleeps at the Quirinal two huge black dogs also sleep at the foot of the royal bed. These faithful servitors have taken to heart Mr. Carlylc's admonitions against vocalitv," anil have learned that silence is the eternal duty of dogs. They obey no one but the King, never bark, and would strangle, without any parley ing, the first person who entered "the room. —Pa 11 Mall Gazette. Utilizing the Motion of the Sea. For the last two centuries attention has been directed toward those natural ele ments of power which might be derived from the rise and fall of the tide. Theo retically this would afford a source of pow er which would be limitiess, but practical ly it has never gone further than the en grossing of such tidal motors on paper. Of late this subject of utilizing the natural movement of water has been renewed with the idea of making the rolls and oscilla tions of the ship caused by the ocean swell ns the means of propelling the vessel. On the occasion of the passage of a vessel from England to Australia, a voyage ex tending over some 2,000 hours, a ship made 1,704,088 beam oscillations or rolls, and 1,041,137 fore-and-aft oscillations or pitches. A Mr. Tower, of England, de scribes a machine, with the object of stor ing this immense and constant power, which is to impart propulsion to the ves sel. By the natural rise and fall of the vessel air is compressed into cylinders, which, as reservoirs of power, are to be called upon for mechanical use. The in ventor supposes that the long swell in the tropics would give at every impulse a pow er equal to thirty-horse power, aud that the average Atlantic wave was as much as 200-horse power, while a heavy head sea would represent 600-horse power.— Phila delphia Telegraph. Beau Brummel at Saratoga. The Courier-Journal has already been informed of the presence of a gentleman at Saratoga who rivals our sex in number and variety of his toilets. He, however, denies having seventy-five suits, and tells me he has only twenty-five here with him. He says everybody has a weakness for something, and he modestly confesses his is for dress. Every spring and autumn Poole, of London, sends him a box of sam ples, and he devotes his evenings to mak ing a selection. It takes him two months to make a choice for six suits he always purchases six new suits spring and fall, and as he keeps them all of course they accumulate. His bootmaker in Paris has his last, and regularly sends him a full supply of slippers, boots and shoes, suita ble for every conceivable occasion. He has a small foot he tells me. I wished to be exact, so I cunningly asked what size was small for a man, but he says he does not know what number he wears, as his shoes and boots are always made on a last. I caught a glimpse of his red and white stripeel hose with a blue field on the back of the ankle, and congratulated him on his Centennial stockings, but he said he pur chased them in Europe two years ago.— Mrs. Grundy's Letter to Louisville Courier Journal. Witchcraft In France. At Montbrison, France, not long ago, the magistrates were called upon to ad judge a somewhat singular case. Jean Marie Baron, aged thirty-seven, a well-to do farmer of Poncins, had for three or four years entertained the hallucination that some of his neighbors, jealous of his pros perity, had combined to injure him by witchcraft. His cows fell sick, his wheat withered, and he himself had singular fits of depression and despondency at the sight of objectionable persons. He consulted several doctors, even going to Lyons for treatment, but as they all derided his story, he resolved to put in practice the remedy suggested by a village crone— namely, to draw blood from each of his persecutors. Accordingly he armed him self with a number of stout pins with glasf heads, hid himself near the parish door on a procession day, when the whole commu nity would naturally gather there, and falling suddenly upon his victims planted a pin in each with remarkable vehemence. Mr. and Mrs. Reynaud and Miss Jeannettc Badieu complained to the police of the as sault. Baron declared with an air of hap piness that he was guilty that he bore no ill-will to the complainants, but that he Ium} to 40 what he had d£§, HOME FARM AND GARDEN. —The Ithaca (N. Y.) Journal notes that a resident of that town has a fuchsia bearing 419 blossoms and many buds in all stages of development. —In purchasing buff Cochins bear in mind that a clear, even buff, without pen ciling of black in the neck or body, is es sential to a first-class bird.—Exchange. —The mind is the man. Farming, in the highest sense, is not simply doing the hard work necessary. This can be done by muscle when directed by brains. The true farmer is he who can plan, direct and control skillfully.—N. Y. Herald. —For corn-starch cake take one cup of butter, worked to a cream with two cups of sugar one cup of milk, in which is dissolved one teaspoonful of soda two cups of flour, in which is sifted two tea spoonfuls cream tartar the whites only of six eggs, beaten to a stiff' froth. Mix all these ingredients well, then add one cup of corn-starch. Beat well bake in a moderate oven. Will make one large loaf. —For black fruit cake one pound of butter, one pound of dark sugar, one pound of flour, twelve eggs, one coftee cup of molasses, one cup of milk, one cup of cream, one teaspoonful of soda, two of cream tartar, four pounds ofTaisins, four pounds of currants, one pound of citron, one teaspoonful each of cinnamon, cloves, allspice and mace, and salt. Bake two full hours in a moderate oven. This makes three large loaves. —To make peach jelly, stone and pare the peaches, and for every four pounds of peaches allow one of sour apples. Boil separately in water enough to cover them until both are tender, and strain through a jelly bag. For every quart of the juice allow one and a half pounds of white sugar boil over a sharp fire till done. To determine when done, let a drop or two of the liquor fall into a glass of cold water if it reaches the bottom of the tumbler in a solid drop, without dissolving, the jelly should be removed at once from the lire, and poured hot into dry rnd heated glasses. The pulp may be boiled with half a pound of sugar to every pound of pulp until reduced enough to keep it should be stirred constantly with a wooden spatula. For common use this jam will answer .very well. —Roses intended for forcing in pots next winter (having been kept in their pots during summer) should be taken out in September, have the old soil well shaken from the roots, and be repotted in the same sized pots. The soil most suit able lor rose culture is good, fresh loam, mixed with about one-third well-decayed cow manure. Very loose open soil does not produce such fine buds, nor are the flowers so highly colored as when grown in stiff soil. When potting, make the soil good and firm around the roots, and leave no empty space around the edges of the pots. Prune the plants well back when they are taken out of the pots it is not only much more convenient to do so at this time, but they generally make finer breaks than if left until later.—Gardners' Monthly. —A horse can pull more backwards by a strap over the top of his head than he can pull forward by the breast, and when he has learned this he will break almost any single strap of leather but this is not the worst of it: there is great danger of his injuring himself as well as doing in jury to the harness or carriage when loose. There is much less danger of in jury by tieiug liim with a strap around the neck, when he cannot or will not ex ert as much force. A handy way with a carriage horse is to have a strong two ineli strap, with a strong buckle fastened to an iron ring this can remain on the horse's neck then have in your buggy a new strong rope with a large knot on one end that will not pass through the ring. Draw this through the ring when you tie him, and he will try the strength of it but a few times. Such is my experience.— Cor. Rural New Yorker. Care of Looking-(Jlasses. Perhaps some readers have wondered why looking-glasses sometimes get so dull and dim that ito washing or rubbing will make them clear. The dimness is caused by heat. A looking-glass or mirror, sub jected to the sunshine several hours a day, or to the hot air from a furnace, register or stove, or to the heat of a gaslight or kerosene lamp, will soon become ruined. At first some portion of the glass iooks dim and misty, then more cloudy, and, finally, spotted or speckled with "black for the heat has caused the coating of quicksilver to expand and loosen its hold upon the back of the glass, till, after a time, particles fall entirely away, and the glass, once beautified by fair reflections, is rendered unsightly and unattractive for ever. Oil paintings are often seriously injured by the same cause. Much of the blame laid upon the careless mixing of colors— especially those used by modern artists— rightly belongs to those who hang the pictures. Care is taken to place them in good light," still greater pains should be taken U secure them from heat. If, dur ing some portion of the day, the sun shines directly upon these paintings, or heat rises constantly toward them from stove or furnace, the canvas gradually takes on a dull appearance, and soon pre sents an array of clicks that fills us with dismay if they a* not speedily removed to a more favorable position, portions of the outer coat may peel off, and the ruin is complete.—Exchange. The Correct Way to Pluck Apples and Pears. To pluck fruit of any sort signifies to take hold of it by the hand and sever the stem from the twigs. If any one will examine tne stem of an apple he will per ceive that there is a seam between the end of the stem and the twig. At this season the stem should be severed from the twig. Hence the stem should be clasped by the thumb and one finger in such a manner that the stem and twig will separate at the seam. Many apples and certain varieties of pears adhere so firmly to the twigs that if one takes hold of the fruit and pulls the stem will be drawn out of the cavity of the apple or the twig will be broken off. Many times when apples are hard to pluck a long piece of twig and several fruit buds will be torn off the limb. Beginners should be taught, when fruit will not separate easily from the twigs, to seize the stem and thrust the thumb nail against the stem close to the scam, at the same time bend ing the stem across the edge of the nail. When the stem is handled in this manner the twig and stem will always separate at the seam. If the stem is drawn out of the fruit, as it often will be when fruit comes off hard, premature decay is liable to commence in the cavity of the apple. Another reason why the stem should be severed at the se uii is, the fruit buds, from which the fruit for the next season will grow, should be left on the trees, or there can be no fruit. When an ignorant and heedless helper clambers about in the tree tops, crushing the buds and twigs beneath his huge feet, and when iie breaks off numerous twigs and ends of fruit branches and thrashes the outside of the tops with a pole, he will often destroy buds sufficient to make a bushel of apples. Let the unsophisticated be taught that if they destroy the fruit buds the present autumn they will ruin the crop of fruit for next year. The next thing of prime importance is to handle valuable fruit with as much carefulness as one transfers eggs from one basket to another. When an apple drops into a barrel, or falls on other fruit, or encounters the limb of a tree in its descent, it will be bruised more or less. Bruises will sometime dry up, but as a general rule bruises will promote speedy decay. Hence, apples should never be poured from one basket to an other, nor from a baskets into a barrel or box. When plucking fruit it is often the practice to hang a grain-bag about one's neck, or across the shoulder, witJi the mouth before the operator, who puts the apples into the bag as fast as the fruit is plucked. But a bag is the most improper receptacle that can be employed for hold ing fruit of any sort, for the reason that when the bag of fruit is moved about a large portion of it will be bruised more or less. Let the incredulous fill a bag with es or pears and then lift the bag of into a wagon box and take Hoot again and carry it to the fruit room. He will hear the frait creak and bruise by be ing pressed one against another. A basket, pail or tub is the only proper re ceptacle for holding valuable fruit when it is desirable that it should not be bruised. When plucking large pears we employ a grape-plucker, which consists of a com bined shears anil pliers. The instrument is taken one hand as if it were a pair of shears. The stem of the fruit is then cut with the small blade secured to the end of one of the jaws and as the stem is cut in two the jaws of the pliers close on the stem and hold the pear, apple, or bunch of grapes. It is a capital little device for plucking fruit. Such pluckers can be ob tained at hardware stores in large cities.— N. Y. Herald. An Episode in New Jersey Central. There is weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth among the unlucky in vestors in the so-called coal stocks which have lately been so severely depressed in Wall street. Among the victims is a wid ow, who has heretofore felt herself rich beyond the possibility of want. Her hus band was a shrewd real-estate owner, who left at his decease, two years ago, a hand some fortune in rent-paving real-estate eligibly situated. It has been his favorite idea that money in ground was secure for all time, and that fluctuations in value would regulate themselves, and the proba bility of increase equaled the possibility of a decrease. However, his fortune was left absolutely to the widow. In an evil hour she listened to the advice of a rela tive, who argued that the decline in real estate was so great aud a future decline so inevitable it would be a good policy to sell her property with a view of buying other real estate when the market touched bottom. She accepted this advice and converted the property into cash and mortgages. Then she sold the mortgages to the Mutual Life Insurance Company, and after a while invested nearly $200,000 in coal-stocks, which then were paying dividends regularly, and were accounted gilt-edge. Over one-half of this amount was invested in New Jersey Central at 105. Now it is selling at 2M}4, and the others at a discount of thirty to forty per cent, below cost. The widow is in despair. Her advisers are legion in number, and she lately sought an entire stranger (through a friend)—a oank President—and placed the stock in his hands, to dispose of or hold, as he thought best. She is at least $150,000 poorer to-day than she was three month# ago.—N. Y. Cor. Chicago Tribune. —Oregon potatoes weigh a pound apiece this year. A Remedy that Defies Competition. Hostetter's Stomach Bitters defy competi tion. Of the host ot rival tonics that have eropped up during its long career, not one lias gained and retained such a large share of public favor, though many have enjoyed an ephemeral popularity, 'the reason is this, that whereas many of these medicines ware advertised to perform cures of the most startling nature, they have when tested, almost invariably turned out to be of little or no value, while the great invigorant,, whose reputation they were intended to rival, has never disappointed those who have placed tlieir confidence in it. It has vindicated in the amplest manner its claims to be consid ered a positive specific remedy for liver com plaint, dyspepsia, malarious fevers, debility, constipation, and numerous other maladies arising from general weakness and disorder) of the stomach, liver and bowels. Wimioft's Tone!—A Safe, Suns' and Scientific Ccns!—The unprecedented sale of this world-renowned medicine proves in contestably that no remedy has superseded the use of this reliable Tonic. No spleen lias been found so hard as not to yield to its softening inlliienee, and no liver so liyper tmphicd as not to jrive up its long-retained bilious secretions, and no Chill or Fever has yet refused to fall into line.
