OUR JU VE NILES.
The Shaving Carls. The workman trims the clean white boards; Whirring and purrring, Skims the plane along its wsy. The while he whistles, blithe and gay ; And about his bench the little girls Search for the longest, finest curls. Edith's ow T n thick flaxen thatch Is quite enough for a summer cover, But the yellow shaving ringlets match. And she hangs them all around, and over. Deft as a mermaid on the rocks. Who sits in the sun to twine her locks. But if she is odil, with her added wig, Then quaint as a saint, With a halo wide about her spread. Is the little girl with the golden head ; The rustle and flutter cannot shade The sunny glow of her own long braid. As she chatters and twitters with a zest. Such gleams of her ruddy hair I see. That I think of orioles building nests With stolen twine in the apple-tree— Ail that you know is, overhead Is a flash of color, a trailing shred. The workman looks at the busy twain ; Whirring and purring, hkiras the plane along its way; And he stops his whistle to smile, and say : “ Always the very same, you What’s play for them i° work for me I Yet I think, as they flutter and buzz and hum ' (Here grave shades darken on hia brow), M How, in the not far years to come, Whiter than shavings make them now, With Care's white frost, and Time’s white snow, These happy little heads will grow !” — Mrs, Cfora Doty Bates , in October Wide-Aicake. Child Marian in Mischief. What golden days they were—those early summer days in tlie Austrian cap ital, and what sights we saw, and what adventures we had, and how lovely Marian grew in the bracing air, and bow we loved her more and more as the weeks went on ! Well—no—we didn’t mind her mischief very much, because, you see, she never meant to be mischiev ous, and that makes all fhe difference in the world. She generally thought she was doing right—and her little pranks were almost always mere errors of judg ment. She would never have cut off Harry’s long hair but that she thought it would be more becoming and comfortable short. She would never have pinned red stripes to the shoulders of my dress coat—which I wore to a court reception, and wasn’t aware tliey were there until a fellow countryman asked me if they were a pair of young shoulder-straps. And I’m sure she didn’t mean any harm when she put a box of toilet-powder into the hat of a distinguished United States officer who came to call ou us, and he, poor mau, who was nothing if not dignified, and not much if he was, felt very angry when his rod face and bald head and black coat received a white shower. We were very much mortified at this, and Aunt Elinor looked veiy severe and said: “ Marian—Marian, why did yon do it —it was very naughty and thoughtless ?” and the little lady replied that she had only hidden it there for a moment, from Harry, and forgotten to take it out —and she continued: “It didn’t hurt him a bit, and it wasn t half as bad as Harry did—for he stirred up our mucilage pot with the old gentleman’s umbrella-handle, and didn’t wipe it off again. Harry was just going to wipe it off, when he came out of of the parlor so mad about the powder box, and seized the umbrella right out Harry’s hands, before he could tell him —and—O, my ! didn’t it stick to his gloves!” Aunt Elinor groaned, and no wonder. And I—l looked very stern, and said: “Children, I’m surprised, when you know I charged you to be especially good while that gentleman was here.” “TVell,” said Marian, beginning to cry, “we tried to be good, and we went down into the court-yard to keep out of mischief, and his carriage was there, and we climbed in, and we would have staid there till he came down, only the pins gave out.” “Pins—what do you mean?” asked Aunt Elinor. “O, we had a paper of pins, and we stuck them all in the carriage cushions, and spelt words with heads; we wrote ‘ Old boy ’ with pin-heads way across the front seat, and it looked so well we left it for him to see. ” Aunt Elinor groaned again. “ And we made a cat on the back seat, and then Harry made a fence all ’round her to keep her in—a lovely fence ! We lifted up the linen cover of the seat, and stuck the.pins point upward—and I do hope he noticed it before he sat down.” I didn't wait to hear more, but I seized my hat and hurried off to the gentleman’s house—and found him look ing very flushed and angry, and as if he might be just on the point of striking our names off his visiting-list. I did the best I could with an apology, but the old gentleman worked himself into a towering passion, and said : “It s outrageous, sir, outrageous. I shall not be able to sit down with com fort for a week. ” I told Marian and Harry what he said, and both children looked very sorry—but surely did the best they knew how to mend the injury, for when, a few days after. I went to search for my court plaster case, Marian looked guilty, and said, very beseechingly : “O, don't be angry with me, dear Uncle W ill—l sent it to Gen. with such a nice note.” O ! O ! ! O ! ! !" I groaned, and felt like tearing my hair. “ Don't feel so badly, dear Uncle Will, ’twns a very nice note—l have a copy of it here and she produced a letter that read as follows : Peak General : We are very sorry that vou hurt you when you sat down. We send von some court-nlastor, and hope it will do you good. We didn't mean to be outrajus. and we don't think it was much trouble for you tc get the powder out of your hair, because you have so little hair on top of your head, and it will brush out of that little fringe 'round the edges easy enough. Harry say ho thinks your head very pretty beh ud ; it looks just like a ostriches egg he saw in a museum. Did you see what we wrote on your carndge cashing •-while your cotehmau was drinking beer with our porter ? Please scud the pins back again when yon get time. “ Don’t you think that is a pretty good note ?” “ Yes, Marian, it is well enough of it self, but you ought not to have done it— you are very naughty to do such things without asking leave.” “What do yon suppose the man thinks ?” Sioid Aunt Elinor, hardly know ing whether to cry or laugh. “ Oh,” I ssid, trying to comfort her, “he thinks the children wrote it, and, 1 dare say, had a good laugh over it. ” “ I don’t think he did,” said Marian. " Did what, Marian ?” “ Did think we wrote it,” eaid Marian. “Why not, dear?” “Because, Uncle Will, I thought he wouldn’t think it much account if he thought we wrote it, and so I signed Aunt Elinor’s name to it.” “How could yon—how could you, Marian ?” and Aunt Elinor for a moment thought she wot wi t ry a little, and then she saw how fur _ty it all was, and she laughed a little instead ; and then it seemed rather awkward, and she turned to me and asked what she should do. “ Do ? why, there is only one thing to do, and that is to go to the General’s and apologize ” —which we proceeded to do foithwith, but not till Marian had promised never, while she was with us, to send another note without telling us about it, and never, never to put any body’s but her own name to her letters. Wm. M. F. Found, in October Wide Awake. Mote Kot to Do It. The birds tell me, by the by, that some folks Just load the walls of their living-rooms with stiff wreaths or chains of varnished leaves and pressed Hart ford fern, strung about in the stiffest and most absurd fashion—up one side of the picture cords and down the other, straight as pairs Pf tongs—in clumps and bunches in every conceivable cor ner—sprinkled on the white curtains— pinned on, a leaf at a time, without any idea of arrangement—and, in short, made the most conspicuous things about the room. This, the Little School ma'am says, is always wrong, for orna mentation should never put itself for ward in that way. Now, don’t do these things, my dears. Be moderate and tasteful in all your do ings, and don’t abuse those beautiful, beautiful tilings, autumn leaves and ferns. Don't pluck any Jack-in-the-Pulpits, either. They don’t press well—at least, I wouldn’t. But this you can do. If you come across a fine, stately, pleasant-looking Jack in your rambles, bend low and whisper something nice in his ear. It will please him. All sorts of flowers and growing things like to be noticed. Don’t flowers and growing things whis per pleasant things to you, my chicks, all summer long ? yes, and through the autumn, too ? Of course, they do ! ‘‘Jack-in-the-Pulpit,” in St. Nicholas for October. THE FASHIONS. Dress grows longer and longer. Jet ornaments are fast gaining favor. A favorite dark shade is lees of wine. A great many ribbon bows are seen on all tiie new costumes. Dace bonnet strings and lace scarfs are no longer fashionable. The new fringes combine crimped braid, sile, and clair de la lune Jet. Paper-hangers re2>ort that crimson, in all its shades, is the favorite paper for parlor walls. Cats and bonnet crowns are large, high, and fantastically treated in the looping and arrangement of the folds. The latest novelties in scarfs are of crepe lisse, embroidered at the end with silk in Oriental colors and designs. The dolman of last year is altered this season to a more becoming garment— closer seams, longer front pieces, and a more slinging effect. It will not be so popular as formerly. The new coat sleeve has just a little fullness at the elbow, which allows the arm to bend without discomfort, though it fits almost perfectly tight from the shoulder to the wrist. The lace, mantilla and lace hood are as fashionable as flowers in the hair: The mantilla is now indispensable for concerts and the opera. Ladies still use but one perfume for the whole toilette. Steeped foulards, resembling the striped woolens so much worn last spring, are now provided for ordinary service, and these make extremely ac ceptable dresses for the house and street wear. Sleeves are tight to the arm, often slashed up nearly to the elbow, and have a fall of lace, or frill of muslin set underneath. Loug-wristed gloves are a necessary accompaniment to the new sleeve. The only fullness of the princess dt'°sa appears very low on the back of the skirt, and falls in an elegant and graceful train. To avoid holding up the train, ladies wear a cordlet; to this is affixed a clasp concealed beneath a bow or tassel, and the train is clasped up a desirable length. Fringes to match embroidered braids are novelties for the new season, and will be in demand for silk and velvet costumes. Ribbon bows are larger than formerly and buttons are ball shaped or else made so thick that they project well above the surface on which they are placed. Among the most elegant trimmings is embroidery in two shades, either on drap de sole, cache mire de I’lnde, ar mnre, or grenadine. This is user! for evening and day toilettes. Avery good effect is produced by this embroidery in two shades being combined with “clair de lune” or jet beads. From present indications long and wide garments will be the style this winter. They will be of silk, armure, and woolen matelasse. These very long garments are principally for carriage wear, as they cannot be worn for walk ing purposes in muddy weather. In consequence, these garments will not , become common, and will, on this ac l count, retain their stylishness. A C MIXES A B TRIAL. One of the Chinese employes at the laundry at Belleville, N. J. t who died last week, was buried yesterday aooord i ing to the Chinese ritual.

Alter the grave had I been filled in a spot about a foot square at the foot was reopened to the depth of alxmt six inches, and a stone pot and some Chinese instruments were placed in it. In a small hole at the side of the grave a dish containing two roasted chickens, rice, a bottle and the John’s chop-sticks, was placed. The trunk, clothing and all the personal property of the Chinaman were gathered over the grave and burned, —New York World. CURB,ENT ITEMS.

[From the St. Louis Republican.] The recent slight shake in the vicinity of New Madrid, Mo., has stirred np vivid memories of the convulsions there of 1811-12. The “ oldest inhabitant,” who recollects the sickening sensation of the heaving earth and the subsequent deso lation perfectly well, is giving in his ex perience to the local paper and reviving old history, which is always news when it is repeated upon a sufficient provoca tion. According to this authority, the first great shock of the historic earth quakes of New Madrid was felt at 2 o’clock on the morning of the 16th of December, 1811. After this there came a succession of lesser shakes, until the second great shock came, on the 7ti day of January, 1812. Then there were sub terranean bellowings and commotions at intervals, until the last great shock came on the 19th day of January, 1812. For several months after this the country seemed to have chills and fever, which gradually passed over, and there has been no recurrence of the earthqaaky conditions until recently. But the de velopment and destiny of the region were materially changed by these phenomena which transfigured the face of the coun try. Many of the people suffered the loss of their houses and lands and moved away from the desolated locality. The lands fell into the hands of speculators, which was almost as destructive as the earthquake had been. Only lately,after the foundations had been tested by sixty five years’ quiet, was full confidence re stored, and the wrecked region seemed about to advance in a general move ment to catch up with the sur roundings. We are told that the New Madrid country which was swamped by the convulsions of nature, and came to a dead-lock in earthquake shocks, is moving now. The fissures are filled, the swamps have dried up, and anew productive soil has crusted over the wet lands. The whole trouble with the country appears to be the lack of a vol cano to carry off the superfluous steam generated in the under world, or proba bly hot springs like those of Arkansas would have answered the purpose of safety-valves. The New Madrid chroni cler of events of 1811-12 states in rela tion to the first succession of shocks, after describing the terrors of the night and the conditions at 7 o’clock in the morning: “ Seven o’clock came; with it a distant rumbling noise was heard ap proaching from the southwest, not un like the sound of distant thunder, or the firing of heavy artillery a long way ofl. The earth began to tremble, then to heave and rock so violently that neither man nor beast could stand or walk. Presently it began to roll in waves, the undulations being plainly visible—the depressions between clearly defined. Soon these swells began to burst, dis charging vast quantities of water, sand and a species of coal incrustcd with sul phur.” The fissures opened by these swells were of various lengths and depths. Some of the most extensive were five miles in length, remaining after the convulsions were over from four to six feet in depth, and an average of ten feet in width. In places where no long rents in the earth occurred there were large openings like wells, from which issued water, sand and burning cinders which by the force of escaping gases were thrown high in the air. So great was the volume of water th rown up that all the lower portions of the country were completely inundated. The inhabitants bad to take flight to the hi gher ground, or climb trees until the ■witter subsided. Several personal inci dents of the danger and terror of the scene were recalled. Evidently the New Madrid country needs vaccination with a volcano or boiling springs as a safeguard against such eruptions on its physical features. CAJt ELESSITJESS. How many of ns become careless in onr daily avocations ! We are careful enough at first, but when the novelty wears away, and we come down to the “hard pan”—the dull routine—we lose our enthusiasm. The man who first finds himself in charge of a steamer’s engines, with hun dreds of people only protected from death by a sheet of iron three-eighths of an inch in thickness, trembles as he realizes the awful responsible ty that rests upon him. In time he finds that no explosion takes place; he gains con fidence, finally becomes careless, ard, in an evil moment, the boilers are exploded, the fragile craft torn to pieces, and many lives pay the forfeit. We sec a man opening a hotel. Ererv energy is bent to render it a hour for the wayfarer, and he succeeds. In time the novelty wears away, the landlord be comes careless, and his guests, one ifter another, pass by on the other sidfe to seek more comfortable quarters. He mourns his fate, but knows not the cause of his ill-luck. Newspapers, both in city and courtry, often start into existence under the nost favorable auspices, and flourish ai the green bay tree; butby-and-by the editor becomes careless of the intellectual rants of his readers, and after a time sub scribers cease to renew, and he is dis posed to grumble at the public. Whether as a hotel-keeper, at en gineer, or as au editor, he that always keeps these facts in view succeeds h the end; and we flatter ourselves thaf The Ledger is of that class of papers thvt has not degenerated in the quality of ifi mat ter since the first number was giv?n to the world. Then let anything that yon do, Aeth er you pursue it as an avocation r for pleasure, be fully up to the standard you have set up as your guide. Let ro sign of demoralization enter or gain t foot hold in your business, for sooner or later you must be a loser. Whatever you do, do with your whole heart; do it well, and with a full determinafon to succeed, remembering that he thai faints and falls by the wayside reccivei from the world no credit for what he las al ready done.

A Model Life Insurance Cos. We have just been favored with copies of the official report of the Insurance Commissioners for New York, Massachusetts, Maryland, Illinois and Wisconsin, who were some time ago de puted to make a thorough examination of the affairs of the greatest Life Insurance Company of the Northwest, the Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Company of Milwaukee. The examination made by them was undoubtedly one of the most exact and complete on record, for every one of the gentlemen named is prac tically conversant with every detail of the in surance business. The Commissioners say that “every facility was granted them for the full examination.” The examination of the invest ments of the Company, the Commissioners say —“on loans and mortgages are nearly two thirds of the assets, and develops the most vigilant care and faithfulness in determining the validity of titles, and the margin of security appears in every instance to have been largely in excess of that required by the insurance laws, being, in the aggregate, nearly lour tunes greater than the amount loaned.” The Examining Commission further say: “We have caused a re-valuation of all the real estate on which the Company has placed its loans. This re-valuation has been made en tirely independent of the Company or its man agers, by competent and experienced appraisers appointed by the Commission in each of the seventeen States in which the loans are dis tributed.” _ , ASSETS.

It is due to the Company to state that its books and accounts in every department of its business show a degree of accuracy not easily nii-passed. The system of accountability ana accuracy throughout finds unqualified approval.” A RIG THING —ON RARER. A country paper tells us of a Chicago man’s wonderful invention, by -which a railway can be built through a prairie country for $1,500 per mile, which will convey passengers with greater speed and safety, and freight with greater speed and one-third the weight of cars on non paying loads. Secondly, the owner or operator builds his road around a circu lar track of say 160 acres, attaches hie locomotive to his gang of plows on the Fowler system, and plows his 160 acres in less than a day, without a break or stop, the gang of plows being drawn to the center by coiling the wire-rope guides around a fixed cylinder in the center of the field, which circumference is equal to the width of the plows. Heap ing, mowing and corn-cultivating is done by the same means. Lastly, by means of a similar arrangement the application of liquid manure is prepared with one fortieth the expense of the compound on the Euglish plan. The importance of this can be estimated when we say that, by this means, farms in England and Scotland have had their fertility in creased five-fold, and have produced as much as seventy tons of grass to the acre per year. It is a “ big thing”—at least on paper —and it is stated that the inventor’s drawings “ have the approval of the best engineering talent in Chicago.”— Chicago Journal. VAR RE TICS. A great many relics of the war still continue to be picked up on the old bat tle-fields near Vicksburg, and there is hardly a day passes that a local junk dealer does not buy quantities of lead bullets. To give something of the idea of the amount of lead the Yanks rained down upon the city, the books show that he has bought and shipped some seventy five tons of leaden bullets, not including shell, solid shot, etc., and he did not en ter the business until two or three years after the larger portion of the trade was over. How to Grow Cheerful. Disease is in a great many—perhaps the ma jority—of instances the underlying cause of mental depression. It will almost invariably be found, for instance, that hypochondriacs are dyspeptic, bilious subjects, and all persons who have had any experience of such cases are aware that sufferers from diseases of the kid neys and bladder are especially subject to fits of despondency. The sure way to overcome de pression is to try a course of Hostetler’s Stom ach Bitters, a cheering cordial which is pecul iarly antagonistic to tho “blues,” as well as to tho'causes which produce them. This popular and efficacious corrective of a disordered condi tion of the system remedies the most obstinate cates of indigestion, biliousness and constipa tion, overcomes disorders of the urinary or gans. purifies and enriches the blood, and re stores vigor to the body as well as elasticity to the mind.
