— Chambers’ Journal.
Translated from the Illustrite Welt, by Mrs. B. M
Years ago I was on service as a police
man in P , a city which was reckon
ed as a sort of seminary for raw members
of the force. I was so fortunate as to
find hero a courteous chief and agreeable
colleagues. One man in particular,
named Bratic, awakened in me a strong
interest, which increased when he was
pointed out by my associates as a most
remarkably successful detective. 1
sought conversation with him on matters
connected with the service, hut found
little encouragement; he met me always
politely, but his manner was distant,
and his words few. It was long before
I discovered that there was one subject
upon which he was ready to discourse —
the various admirable traits of his only
son. Usually such unlimited praise be
stowed on a child by a parent provokes
laughter, but this enthusiasm was so in
contrast to Bratio’s ordinary manner
that I could not but feel touched by it.
Through the exertions of the father,
this son had already obtained an excel
lent position in a bank, and was a favor
ite with the directors.
About six months after my arrival in
P , there occurred a sudden lull in
our business, as if the brotherhood of
rogues Lad agreed upon a strike, in the
hope that we might die of ennui. Proba
bly the owners of extensive property
were heartily glad of unusual quiet, but
to us it was wearisome enough.
At last our chief was notified that an
attempt had been made to enter a villa
in the suburbs, and that through the
merest accident it had failed of success.
The wealthy owner, Mr. Melcher, en
treated that a special watch might be
kept about the house, as he had reason to
fear that the thieves had not given up
their design. Although our chief did
not share this fear, he was ready to
comply with the wish of -Mr. Melcher,
and called for Bratic, whose residence
w;is in the neighborhood, with the in
tention of placing the matter in his
charge. But when he came, he had so
much the appearance of a man suffering
from exhaustion or the approach of seri
ous illness, that the chief earnestly
advised that he should rest, and leave
the affair to another. Bratic, however,
insisted that he was perfectly well, and
ready for the undertaking.
Mr. Melcher was much relieved to see
the matter in charge of one with whose
reputation he was well acquainted. He
gave him a key to a side door, or gate,
of the park, and Bratic entered upon
his duties, which were not severe, being
nothing more than to dine and sup with
Mr. Melcher, and to spend a consider
able portion of the day and night in
rambling about the park. About a
week had passed, when the chief receiv
ed a few lines from Bratic, notifying him
that he was no longer able to keep watch,
on account of sudden illness, and re
questing that a trustworthy person be
sent in Ins place. It was already late in
the evening, and I was the only officer
present, happening at that time to boon
The director did not consider It neces
sary to place another man on guard at
the house, but desired me to call on
Bratic during the following day, and
bring word as to the condition of af
The next morning was especially fine,
tempting me to start upon my errand im
mediately when released from duty.
Bratic’s door was opened by the old
housekeeper, who informed me that her
master was in lied , but had not sent for
a physician, nor required any assistance.
She then led the way to his sleeping
room. He was unusually pale, but his
eyes had the restless expression betoken
ing fever. He assured me that the ill
ness was nothing of any consequence,
only a feverish attack, probably caused
by indigestion. He thought it not need
ful to call a doctor, but was anxious lest
some mishap might occur at the house of
Mr. Melcher, on account of his absence.
He could, however, give no other ground
for his fears, than a sort of presentiment,
which I endeavored to convince him
arose from depression af spirits. To
draw his mind from the subject, I asked
Some questions about the various keys
and picks which hung in groups upon the
“A curious collection, is it not?” said
he, ‘‘all gathered during my long ser
vice. Some of these 1 Lave taken from
the most notorious burglars. I believe
that every system of keys and every |
contriv ino > for lock-picking is represent
ed here.”
The thought occurred to us that it was
fortunate that all these dangerous imple
ments were in the hands of a person of
proved honesty. We conversed for a
few moments on indifferent matters, and
I rose to take my leave. At the same
moment someone rushed up the stairs
and entered the room without ceremony.
It was a servant of Air. Aleleher, who
stood for a moment breathless, and then
gasped out, “ My master has been mur
dered !”
Bratie groaned, ami sank back on his
pillows. It was a terrible shock to the
faithful ami zealous official, that during
bis absence the very evil should take
place against which it was his especial
charge to he on guard. Even I felt self
reproach that I had not urged the chief
to send another officer immediately. But
it was no time to indulge in vain regrets.
I sent the servant to inform the chief of
the murder, spoke word of consolation
and sympathy to Bratic, and hastened to
the villa.
The body of the murdered man lay
still in bed, the features quiet and undis
turbed, a> though in peaceful sleep. I
turned down the coverlet; between the
“ftb and sixth ribs a dagger was driven
to the hilt. This dagger." I was assured
by the servant who accompanied me was
the property of Mr. Melchner. who had
been accustomed to use it as a pa>x>r
knife. The stroke must have been made
by a sure and strong hand, for it was evi
dent that death had followed instantly.
At first sight the room showed no trace
of disturbance, but in a careful examina
tion I found that the doors of the iron
only, nut locked. o\
Vp§/il*f( I ail the
were in the most precise ordr, with a
single exception. Whether anything
had been taken, I of course could not
know; if there were anything missing,
why had a considerable amount of money
been L.*t? The whole afiair seemed to
me mysterious and unaccountable.
I locked the door of the room, to j
await the arrival of the magistrates, and |
began an investigation with the object
of ascertaining in w hat manner the mur-:
derer had obtained entrance to the house, j
It seemed impossible that any of the ser-;
vants could lie implicated in the murder,
all being elderly, and in Melcher’s ser
vice for a length of time varying from ;
fifteen to twenty-five years. None of \
them had heard any disturbance during
the night, not even a sound from the
watch-dog, and the gates of the park
w r ere all properly fastened. I made a
careful examination of the freshly grav- j
eled walks, but found only a large oval
impression, in no way resembling a fool- j
print, except in its frequency. Near the !
entrance I found a square bit of paper, |
on which the number 21, was written. !
It was yellowish from age, and seemed to i
have been used as a label. More from 1
habit, than liecause I attached any im
portance to it, I preserved the scrap. By
this time the magistrates had arrived and
with them our chief. I could see in the I
expression of his face that he reproached
himself keenly for his inattention to \
Bratic’s request. Still it could not be |
considered a fault on his part; it is not ■
the business of the police to keep special
guard over each house, and that it bad j
been granted to Air. Melcher, was an ex
ception to the rule.
The investigation had scarcely been
begun when Bratic appeared, pale and
i “For heaven’s sake,” exclaimed the
chief, “ what possesses you to come here
in your present condition? You have
done your duty faithfully; it is foolish
for you to take the affair so to heart.
Now go home and keep quiet.”
“ I am not sick,” answered Bratic, “ it
is my wish to attend to my duty.”
The director opened his mouth to re
i ply, but Bratic said with impatience,
“ i entreat, sir, leave this to me. Aly
honor is concerned.”
He was so determined, in spite of all
remonstrances, that the unraveling of
the mystery was committed to his
i charge. I attempted to speak to him of
the few trifles which had come ta my no
tice, hut with unusual abruptness lie re
■ fused all assistance, and declared that
! discovery should be brought about by
his efforts alone. It seemed as though
he was half beside himself at the thought
i of the terrible consequence of his giving
way to so slight an indisposition, and it
was evident that he would give his whole
energy to the discovery of the criminal.
, Alelcher’s heir sent Bratic a handsome
sum in acknowledgement of his long
i watch, hut he refused to accept it, saying
[ that he had in no way earned it.
From the accounts, it appeared that a
sum of $15,000 in bonds was missing, but
strangely enough, no record could be
found of the numbers, so that to trace
! them would be well nigh impossible.
Some weeks passed during which
nothing new was discovered, and at last
the mention of the case in Bratic’s pres
ence was sufficient to drive him from the
One day Bratic, in company with an
' other police agent, visited a notorious
alehouse, and met there a man who was
especially marked for observation by the
police. Cunning and cautious, he had
many times been arrested, but always
discharged for want of evidence, though
his guilt was a moral certainty. In
spite of this man’s earnest asseverations,
that no one could lay anything to his
charge, Bratic took him along to make
him give an account of himself. On the
| way he said something suddenly to
Bratic, which was not overheard by the
! other officer, but which caused Bratic to
I start, and look at him earnestly, and
after a few moments, he released him
from custody. Of this he gave no ex
planation, and his queer behavior in this
and other matters was the subject of con
siderable remark among the force. Two
weeks later, he handed in his resigna
tion, nor would he be prevailed upon to
withdraw it. The papers in the
“Aleleher ease” were placed in my
hands, as a matter of form, though we
had given up the hope of unearthing the
murderer, unless through a fortunate
It may have been a year later that I
read with the utmost astonishment an
item stating that the murderer of
Melcher was discovered. Since nothing
of the kind had become known to us,
who were most concerned, I called on
the editor for information. He referred
me to a local reporter, who explained by
saying that he had been present at the
arrest ot a man who cried out that he
knew the man who murdered Aleleher,
and he would let the world know it, too.
The reporter acknowledged that he took
those words for mere ravings, but wrote
it out to fill his notes, 1 dismissed him
with a reproof, and sought out the man
who had made use of those words. He
was the same whom I have before spoken
ol as being under police supervision, and
had been arrested on suspicion in some
more recent trouble. He stated that on
the night in which Aleleher was mur
dered he had climbed over the wall to i
sleep under the trees. He had seen a
man pass through the gate and approach \
the house with groat caution. It was (
too dark to distinguish the features, but
he had seen the man enter the house and
leave it again in the same stealthy man
ner after about half an hour. He had j
then climbed over the wall with the in
tention of following him, but he had
already disappeared. He had told Bratic i
what tie had seen, but as he could not
identify the person, it had amounted to 1
nothing, except cause of suspicion
against himself; whereas, if he had been
the guilty one, he would certainly have '
said nothing about it. I could not but
admit that that was probably true.
Soon after in digging a cellar the men
came upon an iron chest, which resisted
all efforts to open it. I remembered
Bratic’s collection of keys, and called
upon him in hope of finding one that 1
would serve. He readily placed his
whole collection at my disposal. 1 took
some two dozen of those that seemed to 1
tit. and was rewarded by finding the
chest empty. I amused myself idly by i
looking over the keys, and found that
they numbered from'ls to 40, only—the
label, number 21, was missing, lii great j
excitement I examined the papers in
Alelcher’s case, and found that the scrap
1 had found in the park on that terrible
morning corresponded precisely with
the others. I walked up and down, laid
down and arose again, bewildered and
surprised beyond measure. At this mo
ment 1 received a message desiring my
presence at the office of the director. He
met me at the door, scarcely more calm
than myself.
“ See: See there I” he exclaimed, “ Sec

and I took one in my hand.
“Turn it round—'look on the back!”
I hero were three parcels, and on the
back of each was written in faded ink,

“Now, what? What do you think?
4 uestioned the chief.
At this moment I found my solf-poses
session restored. Since a second trace
was added to the first, we could not fail
to discover the criminal.
Allow me to ask one question before
I express my opinion,” I said.
“ Ask what you please,’ 5 cried the di
rector impatiently.

that signify?”
“It signifies that I can give you the
name of the murderer.”
“ The deuce you can! And who —V

“ You are out of your senses!”
Ten minutes after this flattering re
mark the director shook my hand, say
ing, “You are a lucky fellow—l congratu
late you.”
Bratic was sent for, and came with
out delay. I met him with the words,
“ I arrest you as the murderer of Mr.
One outcryjand he sank'faiming to the
floor. It was long before he recovered
sufficiently to answer questions. He
confessed without reserve, even to the
motive of his terrible crime.
Bratic’s sou had appropriated to bl
own use some $15,000 in bonds. Discov
ery was at band. The guilty, thought
less youth appealed to his father for help.
What a blow for the father, with his un
bounded affection! His properly was not
sufficient to make good the defalcation,
and with despair he looked forward to
the day in which he must see his son
branded as a criminal. At this critical
time he was commissioned to watch
Alelcher’s villa. He was often in Air.
Alelcher’s company, became familiar with
all parts of the house, with the habits of
its master, and—with the contents of the
safe. The thought entered Bratic’s
mind that he could avert disgrace from
his son by himself becoming a thief.
The idea gained full possession of him,
and drove him on to the act. He feigned
illness, and sent notice of it so late at
night that he knew no other officer
would be put on guard before morning.
For keys, he had that of the nark, and
his remarkable collection. He wore
large, over felt soles, in order to leave
nothing resembling a foot-print. It was
not his intention to harm Air. Aleleher,
but while he was in the room Melcher
made a sudden movement, and Bratic,
seized with fear, snatched up the dagger
that lay upon the table, and drove it in
to the hilt. He then opened the safe,
took therefrom no more than enough to
cover the deficit in the deposits, and left
the house as silently and carefully as he
had entered.
He gave the pajiers to his son, who
had no knowledge of his father’s crime,
1 and who placed them at once with the
I other deposits, so that even had the num
: bers been known, discovery would have
! been extremely improbable. Since Bratic
| himself was intrusted with the affair, it
w’as not difficult for him to prevent any
j effectual search. If he had permitted
| me to make my report, and hand over to
| him the label, number 21—if that false
notice had not appeared in the papers,
reminding the treasury officials of the
case—who knows whether the crime
would ever have been traced? Only a
chain of trifling circumstances brought
the whole to light. The deed had evi
dently pressed with fearful weight upon
Bratic; he had endured intolerable
mental agonies. But for his son, his
first thought and his last, it seemed as
though his detection was to him a relief.
His only entreaty was that his son
might be forgiven for his unfaithful
ness. The directors of the bank regard
ed his wish so far that they did not dis
miss the youth, who had shown himself
much improved in habits, but employed
him in a position involving less trust.
Bratic, with one interview with this
son, for whom he had sacrificed his up
rightness, hanged himself in his cell.
The Golden Opportunity.
From the Kociiester (N. Y.) Democrat.
There is one point in the situation this
year in regard to grain to which it is not
too early to call attention. It is a fact
that, in spite of the events abroad which
tend to put up the prices of grain and
insure a rapid and ready marketing of
the surplus crop of the United States,
there is such a thing as stopping the ex
port trade entirely, by taking too firm
an attitude in regard to prices. Farmers
in California know that $8.25 was paid
for a small quantity of wheat about the
Ist of May, and do not understand why
the whole crop should not realize that
figure. They accordingly demand $3.25,
which is an extravagant price, and tho
result is that 53,00(J tons of idle shipping
available for wheat, are rocking at anchor
in San Francisco Bay, and thousands of
tons of grain are lying piled up in the
I city, awaiting purchasers. No one will
touch the grain at that price, and there
is a dead lock in wheat. The export
market is extremely sensitive to prices,
and the falling off from shipments in At
lantic ports during the recent moderate
rise shows the fact clealy enough, even
were the California illustration not
available for proof. Now, while good
and paying prices are insured for this
year, it ought to be evident even thus
early in the season that the full advan
tages of the present situation of things,
one of which is a ready sale of surplus
products, can only be secured by letting
well-enough alone, and avoiding extrava
gance and defiance in the fixing of prices.
Prudence and good judment will make
tin's a profitable year for the United
States. A speculative thirst for im
mense profits will fling the best opportu- !
nity the country has had for years.
Another Hero.
Somebody blundered on the Detroit
branch of the Lake tshore railroad la*t
week. The Canadian Southern express
waited near Toledo for the St. Louis ex
press on the Wabash road, and finally
received orders from the train-sender to
“run wild.” At Air Line junction the
conductor learned that freight train No.
15 bad been abandoned and accordingly
he signalled the engineer to go on. I t
was midnight, and there wasa dense fog;
the train was running along a long curve
at the rate of thirty miles an hour; and
trundling on the same track in the op
posite direction was the freight train.
Ihe firemen of the express train saw a
lighten thetraok and jumped for his life.
The engineer whistled “ down brakes,”
reversed the engine, and remained at his
post, with his hand on the lever and his
eves fastened on the approaching engine.
There was a gloat crash; the engines and
freight cars were wrecked; the passenger
cars remained on the track, and nobody 1
cxce| t the engineer was so much as
scratched. Imprisoned in a shapeless
wreck of iron, steel and wood, with
steam escaping from the shattered flues,
and flames raging behind him, he had
paid the penalty of somebody’s blunder.
An iron rod was driven in between Lis
shoulder-blades, his skull was tossed into
the cab, and his body was jammed l>e

Small-Fruit (.rowing.
A western small-fruit grower says:
‘ I commenced the business on an in
come of SIOO a year; now it is $3,000.
My market has been mostly in our small
towns near home. And it is astonishing
what an amount of fruit can he sold in
our small towns of from 500 to 5,000 in
habitants, and at paying prices too.
But as someone who reads this may
think he will try the business, too, I
will just say ‘go slowly’ at first.” That
is good, and remember it requires years
to become successfully established in
small-fruit growing, and then the profits
may be light. Your land is to be first
put in good condition. Apply the ma
nure liberally, even if you have enough
for one [acre only. ‘Go slowly.’ Ob
tain the best varieties of fruits, as far as
in your power, and be satisfied to make
a mere living. Beware of setting varie
ties that are not adapted to your climate.
For instance, raspberries that may be
very successful in one place may not be
worth anything in another locality, and
the same is true, in some degree, with
strawberries, grapes, etc.”
Beans for Horae**.
The Secretary of the American Insti
tute Farmers’ Club, speaking of beans
for horses, said that they form a striking
illustration of the principle that the
nourishing or strengthening effects of
the diflerent articles of food depend
more on some peculiar property which
they possess or some combination which
they form, than on the actual quantity
of nutritive mutter. Beans contain but
57U parts of 1,000 of nutritive matter,
yet they add materially to the vigor of
the horse. There are many horses that
will not stand hard work without beaus
being mixed with their food. Observant
travelers have discovered the difference
of spirit and continuance of their animals
in proportion as they allow or deny them
beaus on their journey. They are of
great assistance to the hard-worked
coach horse; washy horses could not got
through this work without them, and
old horses would die under the task im
posed upon them. Beans afford not
merely a temporary stimulus, but they
may be used daily without losing their
power or producing exhaustion. They
should not be used whole or split but
crushed. Some persons use chaff with
beans, instead of oats. With hard
worked horses, this might be allowed,
hut in general beans without oats are
too binding and stimulating. Beans
should beat least twelve months old be
fore they are given to the horse, and
care should lie taken to prevent them,
from getting damp and mouldy, which
will at least disgust the animal if they
do not harm him. Then, to, mouldy
beans harbor an insect which destroys
the inner part of the bean. When con
verted into meal, beans are good for fat
tening hogs.
The Outgoes.
In these days the farmer’s outgoes are
heavy. They are much greater than
they used to be when men of sixty were
like boys; yes, or even when the man of
forty or fifty drove Buck and Bright
with a home-made buckskin whip-lash
tied to a hickory whip-stalk which he
had himself fashioned and ornamented
with buckhorn ferrules. The capital
now invested in machinery, on a large
share of the farms of the West, would
then have bought a good sized farm; and
it is really a question worth considering,
whether small farmers have not got too
much capital invested in machines which
lie idle more than two-thirds of the time.
A wheat drill costs $75 to S9O. The
owner himself uses it from two to ten
days, and is generally able to rent or hire
it out for a week at 25 cents an acre fur
land sown.
A reaper, or harvester costs from $125
to $300; a mower SIOO, say on an aver
age. These machines are in active use
only about three weeks during the year;
the rest of the time they must he housed
in buildings or sheds erected purposely.
Almost every farmer must have, or he
thinks he must, a horse-rake, which is
used only through haying and for the
purpose of gleaning the wheat stubbings.
For all these machines the outgoes are
large. If they could he employed
through the season, there would be no
question as to the profitableness of in
vesting capital in them; but as it is we i
doubt very much whether it is profitable
for a small farmer to keep his capital
idle so large a portion of the time; and
during this time probably, his stock ani
mals are of the commonest quality and *
his fields are not by any means very rich j
or very productive. The constant query i
should be how to invest a small surplus*
so that it shall reture the largest cash
dividend. Shall it be invested in '
machinery which is two-thirds of the
time useless, or would it not pay a surer, 1
larger profit in some good stock anhnala
fertilizers or fruit trees? We believe 1
that a good many small farmers keep ’
themselves down and greatly embarrassed
by a too liberal investment in these ex-!
pensive machines; and that they would
find an advantage in getting along with
out them, that is, without purchasing 1
them, and investing their money in some
thing which would yield constant re
turns. It is a very agreeable and pleasant
and refined way of farming to be able to
hitch to the best machines and do the -
work by silting aud driving, but the
interest we have to pay on idle money
spoils all the fun. Kig crop- and fine
animals, growing into fat dividends, tell

iSays the O matey Omtlemnn \ “The
out great principle that should be con
stantly borne in mind by the butter
maker, is the strong attract ion which :
milk has for odor?, and its? ready absorp- 1
tionof them whenever it ceiues in con-’
tact with them, and that the attraction
never ceases, and extends to the didhr
ent stages of the milk, including cream '
and butter. It is notetiougiito have the
vessels clean. The mere taint hi the air i
of the atable, or in an unoccupied room,
or a foul cellar, is sure to be detected in
ali the cuanges of the milk. In summer
there is less danger. The milking is then
done in the open air, and is not kept in
a hot, inhabited room, bat usually in a
cellar or milk-room with o;>en windows,
iu v inter it is difficult to keep milk pure
through its different stages.
With a knowledge of the sensitive na
ture of milk—and a belief in it net—anv
one wlio has the handling of it, can for
himself see how to manage >o : - to keep
it free from taint. He understands best
hi* situ..*.ion. He know- wither the
fern j pure (* pmnt that U hm, and i
so unpnrutnt), c wOl as the
not stagnant or fouled in any way.
How very remiss we are in these two 1
points that go to make milk, believing I
that a little carelessness is of little conse
quence, when it is just this that will hurt
| any butter, however well it may be
made. And it can never be got out.
’ Who is shrewd enough to see his way
I clear to produce pure butter, that is pure
from foul contact, from the time it is
drawn till it is packet! away as butler?
1 There must not only be fresh air, hut
, clean air—no carrion or other odor to taint
. it. All the utensils for handling the
milk through its various stages must be
scrupulously free from all scents, wheth
,er the natural scent of the wood in the
different wooden vessels used, or a for
eign taint. In view of all this, who, we
! have heard it asked, can ever expect to
have good butter? and yet it is done, in
June and October, and aometimesduring
I almost the entire summer when the sea
j sun is cool, with sufficient moisture for
fresh feed. When there is great heat,
! vegetable and animal decomposition
goes on, the air is tainted, the water bad,
and the high temperature interfering
both in the cow, fevering her system,
and the milk. Now, a cow must be kept
out of the sun when very hot; it is im
perative. This usually occurs at the
middle hours of the day; and then the
animal should lw? sheltered. Yet who
takes the pains to do this? Very few.
We see here the importance of noon
feeding in the shade. The middle of the
day in hot weather umally does the mis
chief. A few hours’ relief from this each
hot, sunshiny day will remedy the evil.
Both the animal and the milk will be
benefitted. This is soiling in part, and
may be the means of leading to it. The
milk thus obtained is in a pure and
healthy state, and the means are at hand
ito keep it so. The recent experiments in
the new systems seem to be steps in the
| right direction, avoiding contact with a
, foul atmosphere, and preventing by a
i low temperature and rapid rising of the
cream, the usual incipient fermentation.

Harvest Drink. —Fivegallonsof wa
ter, half a gallon of molasses, one quart
of vinegar, and two ounces of powdered
, To Make the Skin Smooth. —Use a
teaspoonful of powdered borax every
morning in the basin of water when
washing the face or hands, also use it
1 when taking a bath.
Tomato Catsup. —Cut tomatoes in
pieces; l>oil slightly; strain the juices and
add the spices and the proportion of vine
gar of a pint to three gallons of juice,
and boil down very thick; can hardly
get it too thick; add plenty of red pepper,
and in bottling leave the depth of half
an inch to be entirely filled with black
pepper. Then drive in the corks and dip
1 each bottle into melted sealing wax.
I This is the method adopted at bottlinir
factories and cannot fail to keep the cat
sup. Never let catsup burn in the boil
To Purify the Blood. — Strictly diet
on o:;t meal porridge, lean beef, plain
vegetables, fruit and Graham bread. Eat
no wheat bread or pastry or puddings; no
butter or grease at all. Butter and cheese
secretly poison many systems. Drink
weak lemonade. Eat regularly, and the
I drier the food the better. Food flouting
in grease refuses to digest. Substitute
clear water —not ice water —for tea or
coffee. On retiring, apply cold cream or
beef fat to the complexion. Take the
oils externally instead of internally.
Cream Cake.— lnto half a pint of
boiling water put half a cupful butter;
let it boil, and stir in two cupfuls flour,
measured beiore sifted; this will form
into a stiff dough; let it cool, then break
in five eggs, and stir till perfectly
smooth; drop in pans, a tablespoon at a
time, and not near together. Bake in a
quick oven, about 20 minutes; if taken
i out of the oven too soou will fall. In
side Cream —Une pint of milk, two table
spoonfuls corn-starch, one cupful sugar,
and one egg; reserve a little of the milk
to wet the corn-starch in, and boil the
rest; then add corn-starch, sugar, and
egg; place on the fire and stir occasion
ally till it thickens. When cool, split
open the cakes near the top, and fill.
Green Tomato Pickles. —One peck
green tomatoes, ten white onions, six
green peppers, one small box of mustard,
two quarts of vinegar, one and one-half
pints of salt, one-half pound white
mustard seed, one-quarter pound whole
cloves, one tablespoonful black pepper;
j cut onions and tomatoes in thin slices,
and chop peppers fine; make layers of
! ’.hem in a large stone ixtt, and sprinkle a
little salt on each layer. Let them
i stand 24 hours, aud then drain off the
, brine. Put tomatoes, onions and peppers
in a preserving-kettle, sprinkling o;i each
layer the mustard-seed, spice, and pop
per, and so on till the kettle is full. The
box of mustard should be thoroughly
mixed in the vinegar, and thrown into
the kettle after everything else is in.

A Turkish Lady as Seeu by a Yankee
The following extract is from a letter
written by the captain of a Maine brig
now loading in Smyrna, Turkey:
“Speaking of Turks makes me think to
tell you that I have been highly honored
since I have been here, having had as a
visitor a Turkish lady of high rank—
something that never happened before in
Smyrna, so my consignee informs me.
She was the most beautiful woman I
have ever seen, and wonderfully grace
-1 ful. I suppose you are aware that the
Turkish ladies are always veiled to all
except their husbands, if they hare any,
but this lady was unmarried and came
on board accompanied by the consignee
of my vessel with his wife and sister and
a small army of attendants. She kept
closely veiled while she remained on
deck, but when resting in the cabin a
photograph of my little girl was handed
to her. She, in order to observe it bet
ter, dropped her veil and thus remained
during the short time of her visit. She
was just like all handsome women, per
fectly well aware of the fact and evi
dently willing that others should be,
when out of sight of her own people, j
She was perfectly at case, and just before ,
leaving re-covered her face with her veil
and assumed that mysterious look and
appearance common to all Turkish wo
A Remarkable Petrification.
The Portland Oregonian of August
15th contains this unbelievable story: 1
“ Judge E. C, Bronaugh has attached to j
his watch chain a little amulet or charm,
which, aside from its peculiar history, is
veay pretty in itself. It is nothing more
nor iess than a petrified rosebud. Dur-i
ing the rebellion a young nephew of,
JuJge Bronaugh, while in one of south
ern states, wrote home to his mother and
inclosed in the letter a rosebud. The
letter arrived safely at its destination,
and, after having been jttruaed, was laid
aside with the rosebud in a drawer, where
it remained for eight or nine months.
\¥ben the drawer was overhauled and
the letter again brought to light, the
rosebud it contained was discovered to •
be petrified. The judge’s aunt recently !
sent the stone to him at this place, and
he placed it in the hands of a jeweler for !
the purpose of having it fitted to.
carry on his watch chain. The petrifac- ]
tiou is to very hard that while trying to j
drill a hole in it two or three tools were
broken before the object was accom
plished. It i* a perfect rosebud, aud so
well preserved that the finest fibres are
to be seen. What peculiarities of air,
earth or water could have changed the I
tender rosebud into a hard, almost dia
mond like, substance in the short space
of nine months is to us a mystery.”
