VOLUME XXIV. a. lost noun. A golden hour on a summer mom, When half the world was still. The dew was fresh in the new-mown hay, And the bridal veil of the fair young day Hung o’er the purple hill. The sheep bells tinkled across the slopes, Sweet as an elfin chime; Butterflies flitted athwart the down. Bees went murmuring, busy and brown, Over the fragrant thyme. A languid calm and a dull content. Silence instead of speech ; The wind sighed low, and the lark sang high, But the golden hours of our lives went by, And drifted out of reach. We both went to an eager life; But in its pause to-day The dream of that golden hour returns, And my jaded spirit frets and yearns For one chance swept away. The years creep on, the heart grows tired Even of hopes fulfilled. And turns away from the world’s strong wine, With fevered lips, that must ever pine, For that pure draught wc spilled. And yet, i>erchance, when our long day wanes (Age bath its joys late bom), We shall meet again on the green hillside, And find, in the solemn eventide The hour wc lost at morn. MY NIGHT LODGER. Every person said I was a queer little girl. I can’t remember when they did not say that. From all that I can learn, I was not a queer baby. I cried like any other chihl, and was just as troublesome, so the qneemess must have been ac quired I cannot discover wherein my qneer ness lies ; when I ask my friends, they say, ‘ ‘ Why—well, yon are different from other folks. ” Avery clear ami satisfac tory definition! This having the word “queer” at tached to my name used to annoy me. My dolls were the only specimens of humanity to whom I confessed this. To them I confided all my secrets and my manifold trials. They were attentive listeners—never interrupted me. There was “Rosa,” the very luge one; she was my prime favorite ; and, oh! there were so many of them I cannot describe them. When I was 11 years old our folks tried to make me think I was too old to play with dolls. I felt as though life would have no pleasures for mo were my dolls taken from me. No one knows how I loved them. I used to go to my room, and, locking the door to keep my fun loving brothers and sisters from intrud ing, I would play by the hour with my miniature family. Another favorite re sort of mine was the garret. It was lull of boxes, barrels and chests, containing old papers, books and letters. Many of the letters were very ancient, written by relatives of whom I had scarcely heard. There were letters from parents to children, from brothers to sisters, and love-letters. The latter in terested me the most, although I thought they were rather silly. I suppose I could not appreciate the height and depth and length and breadth of the tender pcssiou. Filling my pockets with apples, I would take possession of the garret and some comfortable old chair, minus an arm or rocker, an and there 1 would sit for hours, reading. I had a passion for ghost stories and stories of robbers and pirates, although they used to frighten me terri bly. When in the midst of a most Iriglit ful story, down would tiunblc a bundle of something from the rafters, making considerable noise, and leading me to imagine the ghosts and robbers had stepped from the book to the garret. An old apple-tree stood by one of the windows; it had the greatest faculty for unearthly croaking and groaning, and the lightuing-red generally kept up a malicious racket. I declare it is a wonder I didn’t lose my senses reading so much trash and hearing so many fearful sounds. But this has nothing to do with my “lodger.” I believe I am becoming garrulous. In the first place, I must tell you papa was a wealthy farmer, and our neighbors were “few and far between.” When I was in my 12th year, papa ami mamma made up their minds to take a pleasure-trip to the “Far West.” This was something unusual; they sel dom left home. Well, they went, and my twos istors, two brothers and myself had a gay time “keeping house.” One day, all except myself and our servant-girl were invited to go to a din ner-party. I confess I dreaded to have them go. ‘ ‘ Kate, we will bring you any amount of candy.” “ Now, pet, you know you and Sally can stay here just as well as not.” “I>on*t be a baby, Kjtty,” were the words directed to me. Finally, I resignedly bade them “ get out of my sight.” Sally and I were good friends; she told me stories and sang songs, till I be gan to think it was quite a fine thing to be left at home. Tired of staying in the house, I saun tered down the front walk, and amused myself by indulging in a forbidden pleasure—swinging on the gate. Looking down the road, I spied a man coming along. I flew to the house, and, satisfied that he was coming in, I ran to Sally. Seizing her dress with both hands, I exclaimed: “ O, Sally, there is a dreadful-looking man coming in! ” Sally picked up the poker and walked to the door, while I, imitating her ex ample, snatched a stick of wood. Sud denly Sally cried: . “ You little goose, it is Bill McCarty.” Sure enough, it was Sally's beau. Her mother was very sick, and McCarty was sent to bring Sallv home iznmedi atelv. In a few minutes Sally was off, and I was left in possession of our great house, which never seemed so large to me be fore. I tried to read, but it was impos sible; all the murder stories I had ever heard came to my mind. I remembered that none of our doors could be locked. Papa, who had a few strange ideas, declared locks were a nuisance. I felt that I was doomed. I went out to the yard, and, to my dismay, discovered that the sky was overcast and a storm near at hand. I could see the rain coming; faster and faster it came; it was soon at the house. Oh, how it did rain ! On each side of our yard was a brook, pretty' and peaceable in pleasant weath er, but a very little rain transformed them both into raging torrents. As I stood at the window, I saw firs ono bridge and then the other swept off. I knew now that I must stay alone all night; it would be impossible for my brothers and sisters to get home. Travelers, or, as Sally called them, “ trampers,” often stopped at our house over night, as there was no public house near. To my horror, I now saw one of them coming across the field. Should I hide ? No, that was not to be thought of. Without stopping to knock, the great, rough man walked in. “ Can I stay here all night ?” I dared not refuse him, so, as calmly as I could, I answered; “Yes.” He seemed surprised at seeing no one but myself, and questioned me much. I told him that my brother was up stairs writing; that we two were alone. That was the first thing that entered my head to till him. Such a villainous counte nance that man had ! His hair was cut close to his head, leaving his huge cars in bold relief. Wicked-looking eyes and a brutal mouth completed his general expression' A fe rocity. Bedtime came, and I directed the man to a room up stairs in the servants’ de partment—not the “up stairs” where I had said my brother was. Now that there was real danger, I was calm and reasonable. I fastened the door that led up stairs with my em broidery-scissors, which happened to bo in my pocket, so as to guard against stu'- prise, and, hurriedly collecting our silver ware, carried it to mamma’s room and hid it in the bed. No one would have supposed thc'bed had been disturbed. I was elated at my ingenuity. i tiien hunted up what few Jewels the girls possessed, and placing them, with what money I could find, in a box. I tied them in my pocket. After doing this, I stole down stairs, and removed my scis sors from the door. The scissors were counted among my most valuable treas ures. I had had them many years, and had no intention of losing them now. I expected the man would only wait till he thought I and my fictitious brother were asleep, and would then search the house for valuables, and finish by killing me. Only one plan for escape that I origi nated seemed feasible. I determined to wait till I heard my lodger in the room below, and then wrap myself in papa’s shawl and jump out of the window. I woe nut kept in si.speuse long; the pe culiar squeak of the sitting-room door warned me that it was time to act. Quietly I raised the window, and just as the steps approached the stairs I jumped to the ground. Fortunately, there was a bed of lilies directly l>euoath the win dow, and they softened my fall. That there was danger of breaking my neck I had not thought. I was deter mined to escape. It was dark as Egypt, the rain was pouring down in torrents, but this was nothing in comparison with the horror within the house. Hah a mile back of our house lived a friend of papa’s—Mr, Vincent. I re solved to go there. I ran along, stum bling against fences and falling into ditches, thinking I never knew such a long half mile. Finally I reached the house, and man aged to tell my story. Several young men happened to have Kon delayed there by the storm, and, headed by Henry Vincent, a young man of some 22 years, they prepared to capture my visitor. I was too excited to remain at Mr. Vincent’s. I declared I would go back home. They all tried to persuade ifle not to do this except Henry Vincent, who said, “ such a little heroine should do as she pleased.” With a hand tightly clasped in Henry's we started. When wc came within sight of our house, we saw a light llittiug from room to room, and a few words of boisterous song floated to us on the breeze. Silently my friends surrounded the house, guard ing every avenue of escape. Henry and I (I would not let him leave me for a moment) entered the Louse. -We found the vagabond searching papa's desk. Ho had found several hundred dollars that I had not seen when p eparing for flight. Ho started to run vlien he saw us, but, finding men and revolvers on all sides, he was obliged to surrender. He was safely bound, and then ques tioned. It appeared he was a noted thief who had long baffled the police. He said when he learned the house was occupied only by two individuals he was much elated. He did not intend to proceed to acts of violence unless my brother and I troubled him too much. When he found the house deserted, he concluded I had not told the truth—that I was alone. Not finding me, he sup posed I had hid, and ho would not hunt for me. Lifting me into his lap, Henry Vincent called me the “ bravest little woman he ever knew. ” AU the others praised and MANITOWOC, WISCONSIN, THURSDAY, AUGUST 9, 1877. flattered me, till I began to think men were greater talkers than women. All that night we stayed there, but before morning I was “raving like a madman.” Three long weeks I remained uncon scious. When I became sensible, anxious faces were bending oyer me. Papa, mamma, and all the folks were at my bedside. “ What is the matter ?” I asked. In a moment that dreadful day came to my remembrance. “Oh, I know,” said I, with a shud der. It was a long, long time before I re gained my strength. Every person petted and praised me, I was the heroine of the neighborhood. Henry Vincent never tired of descanting upon my bravery, and devoted himself to me in a manner that would have been very aggravating to his young lady friends had I been a few years older. My “lodger” was sent to prison to meditate for some years. A N JTAIIAN'S REASON FOR COM MITTING S tri Cl HE. The city of Chicago was cremated be cause of the kick of Mrs. O’Leary’s cew, and now Martin Cremctti, of American Flat, has put himself in a situation to be cremated because of a like calcitration. In the former case results were imme diate and disastrous ; in the latter case they were more remote, and had to be helped along by a pistol bullet, but were indirectly, also, most disastrous to the recipient. The circumstances of this most sin gular suicide were as follows : Martin Cremetti was a milk-boy. on llobcrt Jones’ ranche, and, yesterday morning, while engaged in his duties, he received a kick from one of the cows in the ab domen, which prostrated him and in flicted such serious injury as to necessi tate the man’s retirement to his couch adjoining the stables. He suffered in tense pain, and Mrs. Jones administered such remedies as were at command. As these proved of no avail in alleviating his sufferings, a physician was sent for. In the meantime the family tried to induce the unfortunate man to abandon his bed at the stable and come to the house, where better accommodations were to be had, and where he would be handier to be cared for. This he refused. The attendance given him was as con stant as the case seemed to demand. Someone was with him almost constant ly. At 2p. m. Mr. Jones’ son, a boy of some 7 years, was left with him a short time while Mrs. Jones attended to her household duties. In a little while he told the boy that his mother was call ing him. Scarcely had the lad left the place -when the report of a pistol was heard, and the attendants rushed in to And that the wounded man was dead. It seems that as soon as he was left alone he penned a few words on a paper which was found under his head, took his pistol, put the muzzle to the side of his head, and sent a bullet crashing through his brain. Of the note, which was written in Italian, the following is a translation : I kill myself solely because I think there is something broke inside. Good-by to the world. Martin Cremetti. The deceased was 22 years of age, and very much respected by all who knew him. His name would indicate an Ital ian origin, as would the note he left be hind, but his passport was found, show ing that he came to this country from Switzerland. — Virginia City Enter prise. SHOUT MEN Iff THE G Elt HA N IRHY. The standard of heigh t for the German infantry is at present fixed at 1.57 me tros, or about 5 feet I t inches. A med ical man, writing to a German military paper, points out that by thus sum marily rejecting all men who are below a fixed L eight the state annually loses the services of a very largo number of men who would make excellent soldiers. A short man, if well proportioned, will, the writer argues, not only be able to make as long marches and bear as much fatigue as a taller man, but will even excel the latter in power of endurance. The length of pace and the “cadence” winch arc employed with advantage by the one may not, it is admitted, suit the other; and a small man may not be able to use with full effect the weapon carried by his larger brother-in-arms. But let a short man march with a step suitable to his stature, and let him be .armed with a firelock somewhat shorter in the stock, and the writer maintains that he will be able to render excellent service. Consequently, it is proposed that all men who, being below the required height, arc now rejected shall, provided always that in other respects they are well developed,' be cmljodied in a sep arate corps—a corps which, it is prom ised, will soon contain, so far as phys ical performances are concerned, the elite of infantry regiments. If the measure round his chest after expiration is equal to half his height, and if the chest is well formed and has sufficient ; depth a man, even though two or three inches below the present standard for | the German army, will be able to do I more work than many of the taller and ' by no means so well-proportioned men 1 serving in the infantry. In the other j arms u is admitted that a certain stature iis essential. The morntod soldier must i have a sufficient length of leg to enable ■ him to mount and alt his horse, and the ; artilleryman must be tall enough to euablb him to work, to limber and un limber his gun; but mere height is, it is argued, in no way a necessary qualifica tion for a man who has to fight on foot on a modem field of battle. A Parts editor was recently sent to | prison for two months and lined 2,000 j francs for “insulting the army.” FARM AND HOME. T'artn Rahinys. COLOBINC BUTTEB WITH C ABBOTS. — The way to color with carrots is as fol lows : Use only the outer part of the carrot. Scrape this off with a knife, of course after thoroughly cleansing the root, and soak it for a quarter of an hour in boiling milk. Stram through a fine cloth and add to the cream before churn ing.—Toronto Weekly Globe. Gbapes fob owlne Food. —lt will take more pounds of grapes to make a pound of pork than it will of com, but grapes will fatten hogs faster than com, and they arc much better than barley or com to feed young pigs when weaning them from the milk of their mothers. Indeed they are the best substitute for milk. Those who have grapes and pigs will use their grapes to better advantage by turning the pigs into the vineyard than by picking and freighting the grapes to market at insignificant prices.— Cali fornia Neivspajjer, Cows pastubed on rye will fatten and give a greater quantity of milk than they will when pastured on the wild range or fed corn in the car. Even in winter the butter has a nice golden color and sells well. If sown early on well-prepared land rye will afford more pasturage to the acre during fall, winter and spring than blue grass or timothy. Rye pasture is cheaper and easier to bo had in winter than root crops, and grow faster in the early spring than the usual pasture grasses, bow in May for summer past ure, and in the fall for spring pasture.— New York Tribune. Rats are in many instances the cause of the cattle plague being carried from farm to farm. After devouring any pos sible remains of the diseased cattle after the slaughter, they are known to desert the stricken farm in a body for another, where there is at the time an abundance of food. Is it not reasonable to suppose they would carry the contagion with them, and thus introduce the disease in to perfectly healthy sheds ? It is sug gested that where the plague breaks out it should be deemed as necessary to ex terminate all the vermin on the farm, as it is to slaughter the diseased cattle.— Ailburn Times, Growing Early Potatoes. — M. Tcl liez, a French horticulturist, practices a method of growing early potatoes which has attracted a good deal of attention in 77 mce. At digging time, so" id and medium-sized tubers are chosen and placed in a position in which they can have plenty of cold air so as to retard their sprouting. In August of the next year they arc planted and grown in the ordinary manner, care being taken to cover them thickly with litter as soon as the frost sets in. Grown in this way, M. Telliez says chat potatoes may be dug from the beginning of January right up to April or oven May, according to the quantity planted. A Cheap Smokehouse. —Dig a narrow pit from twelve to eighteen inches deep, throwing the earth all out on one side. From near the bottom of this pit dig a trench ©f a length to hold one or two joints of stove-pipe at such an angle as will bring the end away from the pit to the surface of the ground. Over the end of this pipe set a common flour barrel or large cask, as may be needed, and, hav ing removed both heads, bank up around it with the loose earth so that no smoke can escape at the bottom. Hang the hams, shoulders, etc., in it, using some thing like a broom-handle to run through the string. Puttinga cover on top of the sticks will leave space enough for draught to let the smoke pass freely. Build a smoke fire of eoru-cobs, damp hard-wood sawdust, or flue chips in the pit, and you will have a cheap, safe and eflicicut smokehouse with very little trouble.— liural Nciv Yorker . Domestic Economy. Moth Patches on the Face. Bathe the face two or three times a day in borax water ; a teaspoouful of powdered borax in a basin of warm water. Gather the vegetables in the early part of the day—enough potatoes can be dug for several meals. In this way we can arrange things so as to have com paratively little to do in the hottest part of the day. A Cure for Rheumatism. — Bernon juice is recommended as a certain cure for acute rheumatism. It is given in quantities of a table-spoonful to twice the quantity of cold water, with sugar, every hour. Good Use for Soapsuds. —Save your washing suds for the garden; if they arc poured over the roots of the plum trees they will kill the curculio; if turned at the roots of geraniums, roses, etc., they will enhance their beauty tenfold. We make a cottage cheese which is much relished by some. Place a tin pan on the stove with five or six quarts of clabber in it; when it is hot and the whey separates from the curd put it in a thin muslin bag to drain. When it has dripped an hour put it in a dish, salt and pepper it, add enough sweet cream to make it quite moist. Stew fruit the evening before yon wish to use it. Apples, cherries, gooseber ries, pieplant, etc., can be prepared and placed in jars in the seller, where they will remain good for several days if cov ered closely. Pies can be made early in the morning. With nice light bread, good hot corn-bread, a cup of tea or cof fee is all anyone ought to wish. I have known persons who did not like corn bread become very f and of it made in this manner; One quart of sifted me al, two eggs well beaten, little salt, enough soda to sweeten the batter, which should be made quite thin with fresh buttermilk; lard as large ns a hen’s egg, made hot enough to fly when poured into the batter. Bake quick. Ironing.— To iron smoothly purchase a few cents’ worth of beeswax and rub it over the leaves of a thin pamphlet, which have been heated through with the flat iron; keep it with the ironing sheet and blanket, and when the flat-irons arc to be used rub them over the waxed sur face: then wipe gently on a soft cloth. Shirt bosoms can be easily ironed in this manner. Hebe is a good molasses cake, which can bo made before it is wanted : Two eggs, one cup molasses, one cup brown sugar, largo spoonful of lard or butter, one te*TOcai?cl <’prge s f*‘i fx' of mixed cloves and spice, one and one half pints buttermilk, and flour enough to make a rather thick batter. Bake in a biscuit pan ; cut out in squares while warm. This is quite a favorite with the harvesters, especially when accompa nied by a glass of cold, sweet milk. Remedy fob Whooping Cough.— Take half an ounce each of spirits of harts horn and oil of amber ; mix them well together; every night and morning anoint well the palms of the hands, pit of the stomach, soles of the feet, arm pits and backbone. As long as the Uiut mont is being used do not allow the parts anointed to he washed ; the back of the hand may be washed, but not the palm ; care must be taken afterward not to take cold. This cannot injure the smallest infant Keep the bottle well corked. WARLIKE NATIONS OPPRESS THEIR WOMEN. Comparisons between the chief civil ized nations as now existing yield veri fications. Note, first, the fact, signifi cant of the relation between political despotism and domestic despotism, that, aecordiug to Lcgouvc, Napoleon I. said to the Council of State, “A husband should have absolute control over the ac tions of his wifeand that sundry provis ions of the Code, as interpreted by Pothicr, carry out this dictum. Further, note that, according to De Segur, the position of women iu France declined under the Empire; and that “it was not ouly in the higher ranks that this nullity of women existed. * * * The habit of fighting filled men with a kind of con tempt and asperity which made them of ten forget even the regard which they owed to weakness.” Passing over less essential contrasts now presented by the leading European peoples, and consider ing chiefly the status as displayed in the daily lives of the poorer rather than the richer, it is manifest that the mass of women have harder lots where militant organization and activity predominate than they have where there is a predomi nance of industrial organization and ac tivity. The sequence observed by trav elers in Africa, that in proportion as the men arc occupied iu w r ar more labor falls on the women, is a sequence which both France and Germany show us. Social sustentation has to be carried on; and necessarily the more males are drafted off for military service, the more females must be called on to fill their places as workers. Hence the extent to which in Germany women are occupied in rough, out-of-door tasks digging, wheeling, carrying burdens; hence the extent to which iu France heavy field operations are shared in by women. That the English housewife is less a drudge than her German sister; that among shop keepers in England she is not required to take so largo a share in the business as she is among shopkeepers in Franco, and that in England the out-of-door work done by the women is both smaller in quantity and lighter iu kind, is clear; as it is clear that this difference is asso ciated with a lessened demand on the male population for purposes of offense and defense. And then there may be added the fact of kindred moaning, that iu the United States, where till the late war the degree of militancy had been so small, and the industrial type of social structure and action so predominant, women have reached a higher status than anywhere else. —Herbert Spencer, in Popular Science Monthly for August SELECT EXTRACTS. Tis fl ame of love often plays on the surface of tears as that of naphtha does on water. Man is like flowers—The heavier the thunder is to be, the sweeter the odors they breathe before it. There is no engine by which we might do so much good, nor any by which we do so little, as by conversation. • There is not mnch enjoyment in con versation without an equality of under standing. Cupid is a knavish God ; he can pierce the hearts of others and hold a shield be fore his own. Jt is always in our power to make a friend by smiles ; what folly, then, to make an enemy by frowns. No marvel women should love flowers, they bear so mnch of fanciful similitude to her own history. Sincerity is the soul of virtue. When she flies away the whole body decays. The next best thing to a really good woman is a good-natured one. The keeper of a candy and ice-cream store in San Francisco discharged a waiter for fonuling the keeper’s cat in business hours, and paid him at the rate of S3O a month, instead of S4O, as pre viously agreed. The waiter carried his case into a Justice's court, pleading that he Was not particularly fond of cats, but that he consoled the one in question be cause the employer had just chopped off the heads of two of her progeny. He recovered his rightful wages, but the Justice decided that he was lawfully JLs charged. NUMBER 17. JU.TET*. I used to think you very fair. And, O, so very simple, Because you had a childlike air. And such a saucy dimple ! I used to think you loved the birds, And lived among the flowers, And that you meant the whispered words You said in twilight hours. And, O, I thought you would be true, Although yon were so never; And yet I will be true to you Forever and forever. I wonder if you quite forget The days we spent together, Or if you think, with vague regret. Of tangled grass and heather. I wonder if your eyes are still As blue as when we parted— I saw them turn away, and All All thought you broken-hearted.

The weather lias nothing to do with the heat on a race-course. When docs a man decline his own ac quaintance ? When he cuts himself. A fashionable young lady dropped one of her false eyebrows in a church pew, and badly frightened a young man next to her, who thought it was his mus tache. An Irish soldier, being for the first time on guard, was thus accosted by a friend : “ What are yc standing there for, Mike ?” “ Shure, they tould mo to stand here for a centhury.” “Johnny, have you learned anything during the week?” asked a father of his 5-year-old pupil. “Ycth’m.” “Well, what is it ?” “ Never lead a small trump when you hold both bowers.” At the restaurant the guest called the waiter to him and remarked : “This goose with wine sauce would be most palatable but for a slight mistake. The ago is in the goose, and not in the wine.” A letter was lately received at the Chicago postoilice, directed “To an honest man.” The Chief Clerk sent it to the Dead Letter Department,with the candid confession that the man did not live in Chicago, Ob, the flies! the horrible flies Buzzing around like election lies Dodging about like a maniac's dream, Over the butter and into the cream; Holding conventions all over the bread. Biting your cars and tickling your head Crawling, Buzzing, Too busy to die. Be™''"'', thou buzzing, pestiferous fly! was quite a company of foU iouablc guests sitting round the table af ter dinner, who happened to disagree as to the date of a certain event of which they had been talking, when the host s 8-ycar-old sou attempted to expedite the solution of the problem by suddenly asking, “Why, mamma, what day was it you washed me ?” Cat ok Dock— An English merchant was dining with a Chinese mandarin, when it struck him that perhaps the dish which he had eaten of so heartily might have been stewed cats, for he heard that they ate cats in China. The Chinaman didn’t know English, or his guest, anxiously pointing to the dish, inquired. “ Miow, miow ?” “No, no,” said the mandarin, “Dow-wow.” “ Bridget, Bridget! why don’t you bring up the lemonade?” said Tlrs. S., on the Fourth of July, from the top of the kitchen stairs. “Why, marm,”said Bridget, wiping the sweat from her red face with her checked apron, as she put her head round the staircase partition, “why. marm, you see the ice I put in the lemonade is so hard that it hasn’t melted yet, though it’s stirring it over the fire I’ve been for the last fifteen min utes or more.” JUST SO.

Among the guests who attracted my notice was a gentleman of the old school, with whom, I am sure, many of your readers would have been glad to have held a conversation. This was Baron Heath, who was Lord Byron’s school fellow at Harrow, and who, being his junior, acted as hia “fag.” He told me that Lord Byron wore a boot at that time on his withered foot in which a plate of tin was inserted, in the hope that it would remedy the deformity, but that the foot ceased to grow at an early period of his life, and simply shrunk up. It was not a “ club foot,” as is common ly supposed. The foot was laced up in the middle. “ I rememberit very well,” said Baron Heath, with a smile, “ and for a very good reason—l have very often had to clean those same boots.”— London Letter. S TMFA Til ¥ FOR TURKEY. The Mussulmans of India are begin ning to take great interest in the war be tween Russia and Turkey, and feelings of sympathy with the Turks are spread ing rapidly among them, and daily grow ing more intense. Subscriptions are being opened in most large towns, and are increasing in amount. In some cases even the women are offering their jewels and ornaments in favor of the cause. Public prayers for the Sultan are offered in the mosques, and pamphlets and proclamations, coming chiefly from Mec ca, have been circulating largely among the Mohammedans. The movement ap pears entirely free from political motives, and is due wholly to religious impulse. THE TRIBUNE. ADVERTISING SCALE. ONE INCH SPACE MAKES A SQUARE.
