A ff.w days ago, at Green Bay, a little
boy, son of Geo. Thompson, five years of
age, was drowned in Fox River. The fath
er came to that place from Islipcming
about, pvo weeks before in very destitute
circumstances. Not being able to obtain
work, he had nothing in the house to eat.
The little fellow became hungry and cried
for bread, and when his mother told him
she had nothing in the house he said he
was starving, and would try to catch some
fish. He proceeded to the river alone,
where he was drowned. Being strangers,
the situation of the family was not known
until after the discovery of the body.
Messrs. S. Wiston and J. E. Rhoades,

lately pn a visit to the Oneida Indians,
whose 4 ’ reservation is near there. They
represent a philanthropic Society of
Friends in Philadelphia who have for
many years past exercised a certain father
ly supervision over these Indians. The
especial object of their visit was to in
quire Jato the rumors that have been
prevalent that the Indians wished to sell
their reservation and move away. A con
sultation, showed that there were but a
few and that the majority
unanimously wished to remain. The visit
of these gentlemen will doubtless, as on
previous occasions, result in good to the
Indians.— Green Bay Telegram ,
The Streets of Yenice.
I have already said that there can he no
more erroneous idea than that there are no
streets in Yenice. The reverse is the truth;-
it is a perfect maze of streets and alleys,
all of the most erratic propensities and
vagabond inclinations, of corkscrew con
struction, so that there is not a house in
Yenice that cannot be approached by land
as well as by water. But truth compels
me to add that they are as unlike the
streets of any other place as Hie city is
isolated in her own peculiarities of posi
tion and construction from all the other
cities of the world. As there is but one
Venice, and probably never will be an
other like unto it, so her pathways are dis
similar to all others, whether on terra
firma or on water. Her streets are the
most intricate and bewildering contriv
ances which human ingenuity ever devised
to puzzle topographical brains and lead
wandering feet astray. No amount of
study or experience can ever assure you
whither you are wending your way, or at
what point you may finally emerge, and a
Chinese puzzle is a mikl mystery com
pared to the solution of that peripatetic
problem in Venice. So narrow are these
streets, without sidewalks, and through
which no wheeled vehicle may safely
pass, that in the widest of them but four
persons can conveniently walk abreast,
and but three if of portly proportions, and
in many of them a crowd of two fat per
sons will suffice to block the way!
By measurement, the w T ide3t of these
streets are not more than eighteen feet
across, the ordinary width not exceeding
six feet, if as broad even as that.
The chief feature of all of them is found
in the constantly interposing bridge, span
ning one of innumerable canals, great or
small, that intersect the city in every
imaginable direction. In the course of a
ten-minutes’ walk “any whither,” as Mr.
Carlyle would say, you will have to cross
at least five bridges, on which, happily,
no tolls are demanded, else your walk
would empty your pockets. Emerging
from these, you will rvend your way
through alleys so narrow that with your
elbows you may touch either side, dodging
occasionally under low archways, passing
under houses and openings into small
squares, each a world in itself and enjoy
ing a separate and exclusive community of
its own. These little squares or campi
(fields), as they are termed by the resi
dents, constitute a peculiar and character
istic feature of Yenice. Each eampo is,
in itself, an independent town in miniature.
Within .the narrow limits of its small
square it condenses everything necessary
for the temporal as well as spiritual com
fort of its frequenters, who people the
gloomy-looking houses that surround its
inclosure. These people do not live in
separate houses, but whole families occu
py separate floors, or fiats, as in Paris
or Edinburgh, and individuals even own
separate rooms in the same house, which,
when disposed of, have to be sold, as one
may say, by retail, due respect having to
be paid to the vented rights of numerous
proprietors congregated under the same
Originally the burying-ground of some
church—whose name at Yenice was legion
—every eampo can boast of its separate
church, so that within this narrow circle
may be found food for spiritual as well as
for mundane cravings. To every Vene
tian, also, the barber’s shop and the cafe'
are necessities, not luxuries, and, as a
matter of course, these are even to be
found within these inclosures and thriving
under the patronage of the immediate vic
inage. To meet the wants and tastes of
the women as well as of the men, each
eampo has its dry-goods and grocery es
tablishments on a small scale and the in
evitable jewelers’ shops are never found
wanting. Besides these man and woman
traps, itinerant venders of cheap wares,
advertising their goods at the top of their
discordant voices, stroll leisurely along,
attracting custom; and fish, fruit, anil
vegetable sellers, down to the wayside
vender, from whom you may buy a single
glass of fresh water, make the neighbor
hood vocal with their ceaseless clamor.—
The Use of Silent Letters Defended.
One who signs himself “M. H.” writes
to the New York 2'ribune, in response to
another correspondent, defending the use
of the silent letters in our language. He
“ Now I protest against this and desire
to lift up my voice to defend these silent
letters against an assassin who would not
only ruthlessly murder his mother-tongue
but would at the same time bury from
sight the records of her birth, the volumes
of history, the evidence of moral revolu
tions and political changes contained in
her silent letters. History is not merely
the ghost of the past, it is also the guard
ian of the present and the future. These
letters which contain so much of history
are not ‘stupidly, stolidly silent J They
live to the eye if not to the car. They talk
to us as do the trees, the flowers, the
sky, the hills. Take, for instance, the
word‘chorus,’which occurs in the first
sentence of the* editorial referred to. The
initial sound is represented by the English
letter ‘k,’ and if the only object to be
gained in expressing words by written
characters were the representation of
sounds then might ‘ chorus’ begin with a
4 k* and one of the 887 silent letters be
summarily disposed of. Of what use are
the two letters? They link the word in
dissolubly to its parent, the Greek Chores,
and as the eye rests upon it there Hashes
upon the mind a vision of the ancient
Athenian theater, free to every citizen of
that proud city, crowded to its utmost
limit with eager listeners and spectators.
As if by magic there floats to the ear an
echo of the rhythmic measures of Soph
ocles and Euripides, and the music of
feet moving in time to the exquisite liar
monj" of the verse. Then come thoughts
of the manifold changes since that aucient
time, with feelings of thanklulness that
we have been permitted to inherit a por
tion of the wealth of the Greek language.
Who shall say that these letters are stol
idly silent? They are not so hut to him
who willfully closes the mind to the sto
ries they would fain tell and the lessons of
history they would fain proclaim. We
would recommend economy of time, of
| space, of money. The measure of eeon
i omy we do not attempt to discuss, but
venture upon the assertion that it will not
pay even Americans to sacrifice the En
glish language for the sake of speed or
Cardinal Manning* in R recent letter,
puis his foot down thus forcibly upon
vivisection : “ I cannot pretend to estimate
the scientific utilities of vivisection; but
I have no need of any such refinements to
enable me to say that the infliction of
physical pain without just cause is an abuse
of the domiuie% that God has given to
man over the lower creatures. It is law
fill to take their life for The food of man;
but it is not lawful, even for this just and
necessary purpose, to take their life by
needless pain. To inflict the exquisite
and prolonged torments described b} r
those who have been present at vivisection
can, in my belief, be brought under no
moral law nor under any right possessed
by man over any of his fellow-creatures.”
It is said to be satisfactorily demon
strated that every time a wife scolds her
husband she adds a wrinkle to her face.
It is thought the announcement of this
fact will have a most salutary effect, es
pecially as it is understood that every
time a wife smiles on her husband it will
remove one of the old wrinkles.

—Common washerwomen spoil every
thing with soda; and nothing is more
frequent than to see the delicate tints of
lawns and percales turned into dark
blotches and muddy streaks by the igno
rance of a laundress. It is worth while
for ladies to pay attention to this, and
insist upon having their summer dresses
washed according to the directions which
they should be prepared to give their
laundresses themselves. In the first
place the water should be tepid, the soap
should not be allowed to touch the fab
ric; it should be washed and rinsed
quick, turned upon the wrong side, and
hung in the shade to dry, and when
starched (in thin boiled but not boiling
starch) should be folded in sheets or
towels, and ironed upon the wroDg side
as soon as possible.— New York, Weekly.
—Never cut flowers during intense sun
shine, nor keep them exposed to the sun
or wind. Do not collect them in large
bundles, or tie them together, as this
hastens their decay. Do not pull them,
but cut them cleanly off the plant with a
sharp knife—not with scissors. When
taken indoors, place them in the shade
and reduce them to the required length
of stalk with a sharp knife, by which the
tube, through which they draw up water,
is not torn and mutilated, and the water
is permitted to ascend freely; whereas,
if the stems are bruised or lacerated, the
pores are closed up. Use pure w r ater to
set them in, or pure white sand in a
state of saturation, sticking the ends of
the stakes into it, but not in a crowded
manner. If in water alone, it ought to
be changed daily, and a thin slice should
be cut off the ends of the stalks at every
change of water.
—To pickle walnuts gather them while
a pin can pierce them easily, for when
once the shell can be felt they have
ceased to be in a proper state for it.
Make sufficient brine to cover them well,
with six ounces of salt to the gallon of
water; take off the scum which will rise
to the surface as the salt dissolves, throw
in the walnuts and stir them night ana
merning; change the brine every three
days, and if they are warned for immedi
ate eating leave them in it for twelve
days; if not drain them from it in nine,
spread them on dishes and let them re
main exposed to the air until they be
come black; this will be in twelve hours.
Make a pickle for them with something
more than half a gallon of vinegar to the
hundred, a teaspoonful of salt, two
ounces of black pepper, three of bruised
ginger, a dram of mace and from a
quarter to half an ounce of cloves, and
four ounces of mustard seed. Boil the
whole of these together for about five
minutes, have the walnuts ready in a
stone jar, and pour it on them as it is
taken from the fire. When the pickle is
quite cold cover the jar securely and
store it in a dry place. Keep the wal
nuts well covered with vinegar, and boil
that which is added to them. — N. Y. News.
Tlie Care of Farm Machinery.
We have heard competent machinists
say that fully one quarter of the value of
inacninery was lost by a failure to keep
the rearing surfaces well oiled. Our ob
servation is, that farmers, as a rule, use
too much oil on the be tilings of farm
machinery, and to the detriment of the
bearings. They put on large quantities
of oil, but not sufficiently often.
The use and value of oil are to keep
the surfaces apart, so they may not
grind, and to furnish a medium upon
which they may slide or roll upon each
other with the least possible friction.
To do this properly judgment must be
used. If too much oil be given, the sur
plus immediately runs away and is lost;
if not enough is given, the bearings run
and wear upon each other and are soon
destroyed, or rendered so loose as to be
come comparatively worthless. So the
first thing to be considered is the exact
quantity of oil to properly lubricate the
surfaces without waste and the time in
which the oil will be worn away, which
will be in proportion to the swiftness of
According to experiments in France
the friction of wooden surlaces rjubbing
on wood amounted to from one-quarter to
one-half of the force employed. The
friction of metal on wood was something
less; while the friction of metal on metal
surfaces was trom one-fifth to one
seventh. Lard, applied to wood on
wood, reduced the friction from one
tenth to one-twenty-eighth of the power
required to move the surfaces dry; and
on metal running upon metal the fric-.
lion was reduced to one-half of what it
w r as before.
One of the best substances for lubricat
ing cast-iron running upon cast-iron that
we have ever used is oil or lard and
black lead—plumbago. The best lubri
cator for wrought-iron axles and the
fast-running bearings of machinery is
pure oil entirely freed from all gummy
If machinery could be kept entirely
free from dust and other grit the bear
ings and journals would last indefinitely.
This is, however, impossible to do per
fectly; but by keeping the boxes through
which journals are oiled carefully cov
ered, and by occasionally wiping such
parts as may be got at when oiling,
great waste of power may be saved, and
the value and usefulness of machinery
prolonged. A case in point will suffice
Good wagoners always wipe the axles
of their wagons before they re-oil them;
very few, however, wipe the boxes; and
yet the one is as essential as the other,
and one is as easily done as the other.
How? Shave a spindle to fit the hole
through the hub. Cover it with a piece
of cloth, and, twisting it. within the hub,
it is easily cleaned. This will keep your
wheels true for a long time and save
much labor to your team and vexation to
Manufacturers and those who sell ma
chines well know tnat implements and
machinery will last more than double
lire length of time for some farmers than
for others. The reason is simple: They
are carefully oiled and as carefully kept
when not in use; for any man who is
careful in the care of machinery when
in use is fully as sure to care for it when
not in use. Such men, for instance,
never have trouble with the earth load
ing on their plows; they never spend
half a day scouring their plows on the
road in the spring; tkeit plows are al
ways bright, winter and summer. They,
when the plows are done their spring
work, clean them thoroughly and paint
the brigh surface with kerosene and
lampblack and put them where this coat
ing may not be rubbed or get washed
away. "When the bearings of machines
get gummy from tbe use of bad oil they
clean these also with kerosene and are
always particular to get only the best oil
when possible. There may be a great
deal of money and Horseflesh saved by
proper attention to and cleanliness in
oiling farm machinery and in properly
caring for it while not in use.— Chicago

Statistics show that of the thousands
who die annually a large proportion are
destroyed, not by old age, or by the natu
ral exhaustion of vitality, but through in
temperance, or disregard, either on the
part of the sufferer or his parents, of the
simplest laws of nature. Such being the
case—and figures cannot misrepresent facts
—the conclusion is that, were the causesof
intemperance, its kindred vices and a dis
regard of natural laws removed, the aver
age length of the human life-time would
he extended proportionately. What agent
most rapidly, harmlessly and certainly will
eradicate these vices, or the tendency to
them, is the question, which has been as

Pear Sir— After suffering for thirty years, in my own
person, from the use of every form of Metallic Truss
procurable in this country and in Europe, I, two years
ago, applied your Plastic Truss, and since that time I
have experienced comfort and satisfaction, and been
taughttne truth, that the Elastic Truss is the only in
strument that should be used for the relief and cure of
Hernia; and now, after more than thirty years’ con
tinuous practice, and having adjusted many hundreds
of Trusses (and for the last twenty months yours ex
clusively), I gratefully declare it to be my deliberate
opinion that your Plastic Truss is the only one enti
tled to the confidence of the public* that elasticity is
the only power at all adapted to the requirements of a
Truss or Supporter, and am convinced that your Plas
tic Truss actually cures a large proportion of all ca. es
