MISS MA ItTII IMA'S LOST IAKIC. "To be, in a humble way, perhaps, but still to be, and to be called, an apostle of cult tin-, that, iW'tir Mrs. Sim mons, has ban my object in getting up these little gatherings;" and Miss Mar thania, whose name, by-the-bye, was Martha Ann, glanced at the lookiog ghtss. adjusted a lean curl, sighed, and Kinihil. Miss Marlhatiia had just retired from the business of school-keeping, and had .settled herself in a branil-new and flourishing village, or rather suburb, near Boston, which rejoiced in the sin gular name of Scramble. Miss Mar thania did not like the name; it ex pressed, as she said, " no intellectual idea, and tended in no way to (esthetic ai1anrmii ni " However, m MissMar Ihania hud. hot wit hstanding her aesthe tic proclivities, an extremely sharp eye for the pennies, she condescended to fix upon Scramble as a resilience be eause of its cheapness. It was mainly inhabited by dry-goods clerks and lum ber merchants, and their families. It WU ft dull tittle place enough, with a few rows of little box-houses, which had as much individuality as a toy vil lage or a stock scent; in a theater. " Into oue of these Miss Marthania had in ducted herself, and after she had made Ihe ACqufti nt&nce of the neighbors, she eh ' t riiied them by proposing "weekly test be tic gat lie rings. ' This proposal was breathed, as we 'have seen, first into the ears of Mrs. Simmons, a fat. comfortable, kindly woman) who had lent Miss Marthania a helping hand, tiud invited her to daily dinners while she was getting her house in order. "Sth What, kind of irntherinsrs did yon say. Miss Marthy " "Marfhanift, pleaee, dear Mrs. Sim mons. It is a ft sort of Roman name. I said 'testhetic gatherings' gather inn for the purpose of Improving our serVes in a taste for art, yon know." "Well. I don't know what Sam 1 11 say," returned Mrs. Simmons, rather doubtfully. In virtue of Sams being the richest man in Scramble, Mrs. Sim mons felt Inclined to take the lead, as she expressed it. Sam was a lumber merchant. He was a good, plain man, who had not yet been disturbed by he thought of culture. "Sam's an elegant provider, if I say it that shouldn't, continued Mrs. Sim mons, " and he's always glad to give folks a good spread, but I don't know as he'd like to have 'em every week. You see my girl's kind of cantankerous. iunI I can't trust her to make cake or biscuit, and " "O!" interrupted who had shuddered much at the idea of us at the lamentable Miss Marthania, visibly, quite as a "good spread " want of culture manifest in Mrs. Simmons' address -"oh, dear Mrs. Simmons, the gatherings would not till be at your house, you know. We might take them turn about. 1 meant that. I w 1 begin, as 1 raatty ought. I owe you all so much kindness. And then we had better let it be under stood that nothing in the wax of refresh ments will be passed, except some bis cuits and apples and fresh water. You know intellectual pursuits are always better advanced by a purely vegetable diet;" and Miss Marthania smiled in sinuatingly. . "(iracious j'ooduess!" exclaimed Mrs. Simmons tn reply. I don't be lieve folks" 11 be w illing o come out cold winter nights for nothing but hard bis cuits and tipples. Folks like something Warm winter nights. Sam would be real mad if I was to set out such a table as that." Btl& it il not a question of eating, dear Mrs. Simmons. I would upon no account prepare an entertainment in which the comestibles should be of a de scription calculated to affect the cere bral." "How?" said Mrs. Simmons, with an expression so completely puzzled that Miss Marthania felt il necessary to lower the Conversation to her level. " Would you be willing, dear Mrs. .simjnons. to let me come in this evening and talk it over with yon ami Mr. Sim mons?" she said, blandly. "To be sure," said Mrs. Simmons, heartily. "Come in and take a cup of tea. Sam' 11 be real glad; and 1 guess John Modica '11 be there, too." Miss Marthania tossed her head a lit tle. John Modica was an honest, simple-minded, energetic yotmg fellow of twenty-eight, who had a real, not fan cied, desire for culture, and spent all his spare moments in reading and study. Why he should have taken a fancy to Miss Marthania Franklin it would be hard to say. She was fully twentv years older than he. and though a well-preserved woman enough, was far from being beauty. But Mi-s Mar thania believed herself to be beautiful and irresistible, and such a belief goes a gran! way. especially when accompa nied by "a high-art toilette, which, though skimpy and scratchy, vet has something of grtiee in it, which Wis the c ase with Miss Marthania's toilette. So it fell out that John Modica w as serious ly attracted by her. and Had almost de cided to offer himself to her. When the evening came, therefore, Mi-s Marthania set out for Mrs. Sim mons' house arniyed and prepared for c inquest. She hoped to find John Modiea there, and she was not disap pointed. But t her extreme annoyance she found also Helen Looting there, and Helen Lossing was Iter particular aver sion. Helen Lossing was a teacher, as Miss Marthania had been, but she was a good teacher, whilu Miss Marthania had been a poor one. She was twenty four, really a lady and really cultivated, whereas Miss Marthania's refinement arid cultivation were mere shams. How ever, the evening passed off pleasantly enough, except for the fact that Helen Lossing was enrolled as one of the mem bers ol the Culture Club. It was true that both Mr. and Mrs. Simmons had manifested an exasperating indifference as to intellectual and -esthetic advance ment, but they had agreed on the fol lowing Monday to have the first "gath ering, carefully stipulating in ad vance that it was only to settle prelimi naries. On the following Monday everybody in Si-ramble was on hand, and Miss Marthania, throned in an arm-chair, in the most avsthctic costume aud tie most imposing attitude she could command, explained the object of the Culture Club. The men, with the exception of John Modica, were profoundly indifferent, but the women were eager for the meet ings though very vague and hazy as to what form of culture they were first to direct their attention. Helen Lossing ventured to suggest that they should devote themselves to a course of read ing, but Miss Marthania, who was any thing but well-read, promptly vetoed the idea. "I have been thinking," said she, blandly smiling upon her assembled subjects, ' that as so many of us are engaged in commercial pursuits, Nu nsnlat'tc3, might be our first subject. Afterward we might pass onward and upward to higher things." " How?" said Mr. Simmons, inquir ingly. "Numismatics," said Miss Martha- nia. "Darned if I knew what that is," re plied the honest man, roundly. " Coinage, or rather the history of coinage and antique coins," said John Modica. "All right. Miss Marthy. If hum what you call 'era have anything to do with dollars and cents, I'm your man," said Mr. Simmons, laughing unctuous ly, and rattling his loose change in his pockets. So the matter was settled, greatly to Miss Marthania's secret satisfaction. She knew about as much of numismtit tcs as she did of cattle-raising; but she had accidentally come into possession of a curious coin, and felt highly de lighted at the idea of displaying it. When the eventful evening arrived which was to inaugurate in very truth the Culture Club, Miss Marthania was in a state of complete preparation. Her small parlor, stained a cold "artistic" gray, was duly adorned with pressed leaves and dried grasses, with a plaster copy of the Venus tie Milo at one end, and one of the Narcissus at the other, one with a drapery of red flannel as a background, and the other with purple tlannel, to give, as she said, the requisite " bits of color." Three hideous kero sene lamps at once lighted the room and made it pestiferous. These lamps, how ever. Miss Marthania had, as became an apostle of culture, wreathed with dried grasses, and she looked around her with pride. Her manuscript, neatly copied on cream-laid paper, and tied with green ribbons, lay on the center-table, and about this center-table the chairs ware arranged. " It looks," said Miss Marthania to herself, " like the prepara tion for a cabinet council." Indeed, few queens probably ever felt so sub lime a sense of their own importance as did Miss Marthania when, mt the arrival of her guests, she located herself at the head of the table, and unrolling her manuscript, announced in a "cultured" tone.: "My subject, dear friends and fellow-di-eiples in the pursuit of culture, is ' A Persian Dane.1 " We spare our readers the repetition of her discourse, merely observing en pas sant that it may be found in the ency clopedia. No one except John Modica naid more than a polite attention to it. But Miss Marthania's triumph reached its climax when, her essay being con cluded, she drew forth and presented to the astonished eyes of her disciples a genuine Persian Dane. It does not require numismatic re search to enable people to appreciate a really pretty coin, and the darie was amply admired, and passed again and again from hand to hand, the women observing what a lovely breastpin it would make, and the men taking a more dircctlv practical interest in it. John Modiea was the only person who had ever heard of a Persian dark: before, and be displayed a very peculiar inter est in it, observing more than once that the darie was a rare coin, pointing out all its marks with the interest of a genuine connoisseur, and smiling rather oddly, and, as Miss Marthania thought, enviously, as he handled it. Altogether the evening was a success, and it was not until the appearance of the hard bis cuits and apples, and the fresh water, upon which Miss Marthania laid a pe culiar stress, as if water were usually stale, that any disappointment was visi ble in the faces of the disciples of cult ure. But let people be as intellectual as they please, such comestibles are but colli comfort on a chilly winter s night, and a universal flagging of spirits was perceptible as they were placed upon the table. Miss Marthania smiled more blandly than ever as she pressed them upon her guests, but her smiles were vain. " Do take an apple, dear Mrs. Sim mons," said she, insinuatingly. "If you will just hand me back my daric, 1 will place the apples near you, and" " But I haven't seen the coin this ever so long." replied Mrs. Simmons, rather crossly; " antl I'm much obliged to you, but apples don't agree with me." Upon this there was a general move ment to find the lost daric, but in vain, though every one rose for the purpose, and though Mr. Simmons emptied both apples and biscuits on the table, observ ing, with a wink, "that the daric wa'n't no harder 'n they was, and might have got among them." Finally Helen Lossing observed, good-humoredly, that the coin might have got entangled in the folds of her dress. "Come with me. Miss Marthania," said she, as she moved toward the door. "I will be searched first." So both ladies retired, and then one by one all Iflsa Marthania's female guests allowed themselves to be searched; but the daric was not found, though Miss Mar thania tluttered about despairingly from parlor to bedroom, aud back again. Meanwhile the search went on unre mittingly in the parlor, but uselessly. " Well, ma, I guess it's our turn to be searched now," said Samuel Sim mons, good-humoredly. Come along, hoys; if Miss Franklin '11 let us have a room, we'll just see if that 'ere coin's got into our pockets without our know ing of it." " No," said John Modica, sternly. "I won't submit to be searched; and that 1 tell you plainly." " Land sakes! John Modiea. don't be so proud about it," said Mrs. Simmons, who was always a peacemaker. "Come on, Modica," said the other men. I should think Mr. Modica would want to help mo find my darie," said Miss Marthania, with a whimper in her voice. But all these entreaties were in vain. John Modica would not allow himself to lie searched, and, although evidently pftlm d by Miss Marthania's sniffs ami snorts, and the puzzled looks of the others, he was resolute. He lingered, however, until nearly every one was gone, hoping to catch the eye of his hostess, but she kept it rigidly averted, murmured eontiiiu:iily that "she didn't know as it was so easy to lose a rare coin." Her English, it will bo seen, lost its elegance as her temper gave , way. "Mr. Modica," said Helen Lossing's pleasant Toice, suddenly, " would yott kindly take me home? It is not much out of your way, and I see that Mrs. Simmons has forgotten me." This simple, cordial address fell like balm upon John's wounded pride, and he never forgot to be grateful for it. Helen Lossing knew that he was suffer ing, and hoped that he would speak of the lost darie, so that she might drop a word of sympathy. But though he talked continually, he avoided all allu sion to what had happened. As for Miss Marthania, she, after a few days, quite enjoyed the occasion. How many times she told the story of her loss, into how many sympathetic ears she poured it, it is impossible to say. She felt herself to be an afflicted being, and made large drafts upon the sympa thy of her neighbors, was frequently asked out to tea, aud had rather a social success for the first time in her life. That by hints, nods, sighs and insinua tions she was greatly injuring John Modica' s reputation was a fact which did not greatly trouble her. With the promptness of a mean nature to believe in what was wrong, she had been from the first covinced that he had stolen her daric; and even if he had not, she re flected, he would be only too glad to avail himself of her friendship again if she chose to extend it to him. Her con fidence in her own powers of attraction was something sublime. It may easily be imagined, however, that the loss of the daric put a prompt ending to the proceedings of the Numis matic Culture Club. On that point so ciety in Scramble was unanimous, and when Miss Marthania had told her story twice over, society became weary of that, also, ami she would have felt her self to be rather deserted had not a se x'ere attack of influenza prostrated her before the invitations to tea had begun to flag. With the first dawn of the in fluenza symptoms. Miss Marthania in dited a cordial invitation to her cousin Betsey Franklin to " come and pa'ss the winter with her. " Well, Marthy Ann, you want me to come and stay, eh?" said Miss Betsey, as she walked into Miss Marthania's bedroom two days after. "I knew I'd find you down with the influenzy soon as 1 got your letter, and your house piled thick with dust; and here 'tis all jest as I'd fixed it in my mind. Now don't cry, and make a fool of yourself. I ain't mad, and I'm goin' to make you a bowl of boneset tea right off, and then "s soon 's I've got you lixed up, I'm goin' to set to work and clean this house. It's a real shame the way 'tis, Marthy ; I guess it's ben slicked and never cleaned ever sence you've lived in it." " I wrish you would call me Mar thania," replied the invalid, in a whin ing voice. " Bother!" replied Miss Betsey, con temptuously. " Your name's been Marthy Ann nigh lifty year, and I guess I ain't goin' to say no different now." When Miss Betsey was in this mood, people as well as things were wont to give way before her. Miss Marthania turned her face to the wall, and submitted to be taken care of in silence. Miss Betsey Franklin was a capital nurse, and though sharp of tongue, was tender of hand, aud so well did she at tend to her cousin that she was soon up and about. On the first occasion of her appearance in the parlor, Miss Betsey turned the sick-room " out of windows," as she expressed it, and soon got it into a dazzling state of cleanliness. "Now, Martha Ann," said she, ap pearing when her labors were over, and sitting down opposite the invalid, knit ting in hand " now Martha Ann, I've got everything iixed up, spick-and-span clean, aud I hope you'll keep it so. The only thing I ain't quite satisfied with is this parlor. I ain't had time to turn all the furnitoor out-of-doors, and Ottlees you do that, a room - ain't never swept 8 it had ought to be. Why, round the feet of this table, there's quite a lit tle heap of dust; and "taint no use to brush round the feet. You've got to move the table, and " "It's heavy, and I can't move it every time 1 sweep, replied Buss Mar thania, fretfully. " I'm sure my house is as clean as most people's." " Is it?" replied Miss Betsey, with scorn. "I'm sorry for the folks you know, then; and I'm a-eroin' to clean this parlor my way to-morrow.'1 " Miss Betsey had her -way, and the parlor Mas cleaned as she thought proper. A few days afterward Miss Marthania indicted the following note, and sent copies of it to all her fellow disciples: " To the Members of tho Scramble Numis matic Culture Clul: " Dear Fiuentis and FEiW)w-Disripi.ES in this Pursuit or Culture: May 1 not nsk rou once hum i 11 tn share with mc the pleasure anticipate in pursuing the study of numis matics, and pressing forward subsequently to ether fields of study? No chill need rest upon our meetinur, as that precious souvenir of an cient Persia, my daric, has been fund. MaIITIIAXIA FllANKXIN." , On the following Monday all the mem bers of the club, including, of course, John Modiea, were present. The daric, placed on a red pincushion, occupied a conspicuous position in the center of the table round which the disciples ol culture were gathered, aud Miss Betsey, with a satirical smile on her lips, antici- Eated her cousin in opening the meeting y saying: " The tact is, Marthy Ann's kind of ashamed to have found her coin, so I'll just, say how 'twas. I was turning ev erything out-of-doors for a real old fashioned cleaning, and found it under one of the i ?gs of the table. You see she ain't very strong, and she hadn't moved the table; she'd only swep' round it. and" " That will do, thank you. Cousin Elizabeth," interrupted Miss Marthania in a voice which quivered with mortifi cation. "Dear Mr. Modica," she con tinued, laying a lean hand on his arm, and smiling what she intended to be a w inning sjnile dear Mr. Modica, will vou tell us why you would not allow yourself to be searched?" " Certainly," replied John Modica, with twinkling eyes. " It was because 1 happened to have two Persian darics in my pocket, each of which is so pre cisely the counterpart of yours that I knew it would be impossible that sus picion should not attach to me ft' they were seen. And here they are," hi; continued, laying them on the table. 'I bought them, intending to have a bracelet made if 1 could match them." In the general movement which fol lowed, John seized an opportunity to whisper in Helen Lossing's ear: " I am cleared now. Helen. 1 can ask you to accept the bracelet when it is made; but do not, dear, unless the giver may go with the gift." Helen only glanced at him in reply, but that glance must have spoken vol umes, for when, curiosity having been satisfied, the coins weue returned to him, John Modica answered, in a voice which had a ring of triumph in it: ' Please hand the darics to Hel , Miss iossing. Miss Franklin. I don't know how to take care of such things, and she has done me the honor to accept them." So Miss Marthania Franklin found her darie, and lost her lover. Harpers Bazar.

Broken limbs should be placed in natural positions and the patient kept quiet until the surgeon arrives. It is said that a piece of zinc placed on the live coals will effectually clean out a stove pipe, the vapor thus pro duced carrying off the soot by chemical decomposition.

All live stock should be kept clean. They should not be exposed to the se vere weather of winter, not only be cause it is cruel but because it does not pay. It costs money for an animal to Keep itself warm, for it must be done at the expense of the food it gets or the flesh it has already gained. An an imal is in many respects an engine and its food is the fuel. Any shelter given to the farm stock saves in food, just as a covering to a boiler saves fuel. Flour was formerly made by simply grinding wheat at one operation to the finest flour, and then separating by sieves the flour from the bran, necessa rily grinding in much of the bran with flour and discoloring it, while much of the very best material was separated with the bran and lost. The later com mon method is to grind very coarsely the wheat several times, using strong blasts of air between each grinding to separate the bran from the granulated interior portion and at last crush it to the floor, relieved of all the bran. The new electric method consists in passing the middlings under revolving hard-rubber cylinders, electrified by contact w ith sheepskin. The particles of bran fly up to meet the rubber, from which they are turned off in a side channel, the purified middling, freed from bran, passing through rollers to become fine flour. In answer to a correspondent the New York Times discourses in this way: A cheap, durable, easily applied roofing material for farm buildings is very desirable. At present we nave nothing that answers better than pine or cedar shingles. Hemlock shingles are not worth the labor of putting them on, as they are soon rotted. A tin roof kept painted with iron paint, is an ex cellent one. but costly. A double board roof with the joints broken and having a coat of mineral paint between the boards and alien painted outside is cheap, tight and durable, and it will re quire a coat of paint but once in seven or eight years. The expense is only a fourth of that of a shingle roof. Zinc is the most durable of all suitable metals, except lead, and is lighter and cheaper than lead; and for flat house roofs is doubtless preferable to any other. A double board roof put on as above described would be tight with a slope of four feet in twenty. Saddle Horses. To the man who travels over the face of the earth, migrating from country to country, nothing will appear as more extreme in the manners of the different people he comes in contact With than their various methods of riding horses. "While the Arab is the ancient idea! of a perfect horseman, yet our own country probably furnishes as great variety and styles of horsemanship as all the nations of the world put together. Let us take a hasty glance at the different patterns our country affords: In Mexico, Texas, and the extreme Southern States, the style of riding is quite unique. On the other side of the Mississippi River a suitable costume is quite indispensable. The bridle is armed with a curb bit of terrific lever age. The saddle bears an immense pommel to ease the strain of the lariat or the elbows of the sleepy rider. A common buckled girth would never do in such scientific riding. The broad hair band is tightened with a cunning twist from a long loose strap that has been "sorunsr" noon until the band is as tight as wax. We are all. at least in pictures, familiar with the broad som brero, slashed breeches and large silver spurs with their attached "jingles." This rider, in his appointments and horsemanship, is certainly worthy of much admiration, for he always looks " at home," and graceful, when he tries to be, even on the most veritable plug of a mustang. It is seldom, however, that his charger calls forth anything but a feeling of pity from the educated horseman. The native breeds of those sections are a long way off from the ideal saddle horse of the middle States. In Tennessee, Kentucky and Virginia, we probablv see the art of horseman ship, both in relation to horse and rider, carrk'd to a higher standard than in any other part of the world. Here we find the horse bred for generations under the most enlightened rules for breeding, and with the sole purpose in view oi making him the perfection of a saddle horse. In physical features he is a model of the artist. In gaits his variety is infinite a rapid walk, fox trot, rack, trot, lope and run, changing from one motion K the other at a practiced signal from the rider: in temper perfect, quick and comprehensive. This is a point which no one but the practiced rider can appreciate. The bridle lines are actual ly useless with him. A slight bending of the body forward informs Mm you want the gait quickened; settling further back in the saddle intimates to him to slacken the gait; a slight bend ing of the. body in the saddle, with a little pressure of the opposite knee, and perhaps an unconscious motion of the bridle hand in the. direction you wish to turn is all the management he neeiis. The lines are never pulled to turn him right or left, but pressed against the side of the neck opposite the direction you wish to turn. Leaning forward in the saddle sets him in a fast walk or fox trot. To put him in a rack the bridle reins are pulled taut, while the heels bring the spur pressure to his sides. To make him trot, the reins and heels are leT loose, the hands are pressed uion the withers, and the body slight lv raised in the saddle until he gets set tled in his gait. To make him canter or lope, settle in the saddle and wave one hand in the air. These are not the inventions of a single individual, but the universal custom among those who train saddle horses in the States named. We now come to the rider of this per fected saddle horse. He sits in his seat with an easy, comfortable grace that shows his familiarity with it from ear liest boyhood. The stirrups are so long that his toes barely rest with ease in them" while his heels turns slightly out ward, relieving the appearance of ex treme awkwardness that is so often seen in riders whose toes point at right angles with the horse's sides. These horses are thoroughly bitted when young, and thus taught to carry a high and stylish head, so that when in full motion, with the favorite gait, a rack (the running walk is the favorite gait in Kentucky), and bestrid by this superb rider, the whole makes a picture that challenges our highest admiration. American S'orJiman. Literature for Boys. The old-fashioned stories which the unhappy boys of the last generation read have been succeeded by the manly and fascinating criminal novel. In the old story-books it was assumed that truthfulness, honesty and obedience to parents were virtues, and that the Christian religion was not wholly devoid of merit. If these views were not di rectly taught in the juvenile literature of our fathers, at all events they were never directly or indirectly attacked. Boys could learn nothing from their story-books except preposterous plati tudes nothing that was of any prac tical Hse, or that tended to develop in them manly and brilliant traits. No such complaint can be made of the dime and half-dime novels of the criminal school which are now read by all our bovs, either openly or secretly. In these delightful stories new forms of profanity and slang are taught in the most effect ive way. The pleasures of burglary and highway robbery, the manliness of gambling and fighting, and the heroism of successful lying, are set forth in what is regarded by youthful readers as glow ing eloquence; while the great truths that all parents are tyrants, that all religious people are hypocrites, and that disobedience to fathers and teachers is obedience to the nobler instincts of juvenile nature, are sedulously taught. Such storie? as these develop all that is manly and lawless in our boys, and teach them lessons that can not fail to be of immense service to them in what ever criminal career they may adopt. There are a few old-fashioned people who denounce the new juvenile litera ture in unsparing terms ; but that nearly all fathers approve of it is self-evident. They know that their boys are reading novels illustrative of the excellence of crime, but they make no effort to sup press that sort of literature, as they certainly would do did they disapprove of it. Nothing would be simpler than to drive those novels out of existence. All that it would be necessary to do would be to " Boycott " the news deal ers who keep them for sale. The truth evidently is that fathers either do not care what their boys read, or that they have no fault to find with " Jack Hark away " and the " Boy Burglars." It can not be that respectable gentlemen who dislike crime, profanity and vulgarity, willfully refuse to know what their boys are reading, or weakly hope that by some happy chance their reading will do them no harm. W. L. Allien, in liar pers Magazine. The Widow's Bewitched Batten Box. Mrs. DeWolf is a widow, residing with her fifteen-year-old daughter in East St. Louis, on Collinsville avenue, next to Klcinhenn's barber shop. On a recent night she and her daughter, about seven o'clock, sat down by a table to do some mending and sewing. On tho table was placed a box containing a large number of buttons of almost every conceivable description. All at once buttons began to fly about the room, striking on the bed, stove and other articles of furni ture. Mrs. DeWolf and her daughter, of course, were alarmed, and thought that some one was throwing the buttons into the room from the outside. But they noticed that their button box was being emptied of buttons. Thoroughly alarmed, Mrs. DeWolf called Mr. Kleiii henn, the barber next door. He, with his mother, an old lady, and his assist ant, Pete, hurried to the woman's apart ments. Buttons, sure enough were ly ing on the floor, on the bed, on the stove and elsewhere, and were continuing to be hurled from the box. All of them commenced picking up buttons and de positing them back in the box. But the button-throwing continued all the time and the parties were hit upon their laces and heads by them. Again and again was the box emptied. ltns phenome non continued for about two hours, when it suddenly ceased, and the buttons be ing the last time placed in the box re mained unmolested. Tlxerewas a bright litrht burning on the table the whole time, and no agency could be detected in the manipulation of the buttons. All this is inexplicable by the parties men tinned, all of whom related it to the Republican reporter. None of them are Spiritualists. St. Louis Republican. . The Magic Flute. The most wonderful instrument of the magical orchestra is described in a Hessian legend, recorded by the Broth ers Grimm. A man kills his brother while they are out hunting, and buries the corpse under the arch of a bridge. Years pass. One day a shep herd, crossing the bridge with his flock, sees below a little white bone, shining like ivory. He goes down, pick? it up, and carves it into a mouthpiece for his bagpipes. Wheu-he? began to play, the mouthpiece, to his horror, began to sing of its own accord : "Oh, my dear shep herd! you are playing on one of my bones I my brother assassinated me and buried me under the bridge." The shepherd, terrified, took his bagpipes to the King, who put the mouthpiece to his lips, when straightway the refrain began: 4 'Oh, ray dear King! you are playing on one of my bones ; my broth er assassinated me and buried me under the bridge." The King ordered all his subjects to try in turn the" bagpipes. From mouth to mouth the instrument passed to that of the fractricide, and then it sang: "Oh, my dear brother! you are playing on one of my bones; it was you who assassinated me!" and the King caused the murderer to be exe cuted. All the Year Round. Grave fears are entertained in Greece for the future of Chios. The iskand is said to be continually sinking, and there are reasons to believe that in time its entire surface may disappear from human sight. Small earthquakes are of constant occurrence, and the fre quence of these is increasing. More over, hot springs have appeared in many places, until there is hardly a locality which does not possess one or more. THE MARKETS.

While passing through St. Joseph, and having heard a great deal about the World s Epileptic In stitute located here, I concluded to pay the celebrated institution a short visit. We were met by Dr. Richmond, the proprietor, who has rained a reputation as broad as the land. He Is a rather small, yet prepossessing man, of very afEable and gentlemanly manners. He cave us a hearty welcome, and took great pains in showing us through his pallatial and mammotn institution. 11 is a nve-story Duna Ine, 200x180 feet, with basement, and contains over three hundred rooms, and can accommo date five hundred patiepts, and each aud every room is furnished in the most elegant and lav ish manner. But we will begin at the office, which is a large room lurnished with rosewood furniture throughout. In the office are thou sands of photographs of those who have been benefited by the Nervine. The walls are ele gant! v papered, and are profusely decorated with rich and costly pictures, relieved here and there by busts in stone and bronze of eminent men of this and other countries. In connection with the Institute is a mammoth printing house and bindery, occupying six or even large rooms, and a score of presses are kept running night and day turning out work for the doctor. The office is one of the finest and mott complete in the West, and he has the rooms decorated, carpeted and trimmed up with as much care and luxury as is his own private office. On the first floor of this mam moth building is the doctor's private office, the printing department, bindery, tank room, packing room, bottling room, consultation room, barber shop, drug store, cigar store, notion store, etc., all of which are neat and fitted up regardless of expense. The second floor has the hotel office, dining, billiard and cooking rooms, many guest chambers, and several parlors. The third and fourth floors are rooms, all of which are furnished with Brussels carpets and the finest of furniture. In fact, the entire house is furnished regard less of expense. The billiard room has six tables, all of which are free to the guests of the house and their friends. The bath room is large and neat, and that too is free to guests. The entire building, which is nearly new, is surrounded on the est and south by an elegant five acre park, in which are many lovely trees, beds of rich aud rare plants, gravel walks and drives, delicious arbors, and a most beautiful summer house for social parties, etc. There are a number of fountains that add wonderfully to the beauty of the park. It is truly one of the most lovely and beautiful parks in the western country, and the Institute has no equal for luxury, beauty and comfort in the world. Everything is per fection, and the visitor is at once charmed with the entire place and its surroundings. An idea of the immensity of the doctor's busi ness may be given when we say tnat on tne day we visited the Institute he showed us to his express room, and wc saw the expressman take goods labeled to the following places, to say nothing of hundreds of orders from all quarters of America: Lyons, France; Geneva, Switzerland; Madrid, Spain; Brussels, Bel gium ; Cape Town, Africa; Shanghai, China; Yokohama, Japan ; Bombay, India; Melbourne, Australia. The doctor employs hundreds of meu and women in his Institute in the several branches, aside from the immense force re quired to conduct the hotel. It is worth a visit, and Dr. Richmond extends to all a cor dial welcome to come and see him. He and his wonderful medical discovery have given to 8t. Joseph a good name all over the habitable globe. The building is supplied with water and gas works, is admirably ventilated, and fire escapes arc numerous. The park is pre pared to be lighted up with gas, as lamps arc scattered all over it. O. K. Keith A Co What th Chicago Trib une says. O. R. Keith fcCo., the representative Fancy Dry Goods, Notionsand Mililne y house of Chi cago,have made the amplest arrangements for a greatly enlarged trade the present spring s -a-sou. Ti.eir mammoth store of six floors, 100x175 feet, shows an immense stock of almost every thing in the dry-goods line. For several years, they have been adding new lines of goods to their former stock, and their business has nearly doubled each year for the last three years. This new departure or ahouse with such an established reputation, large capital and business, by which it practically becomes one of the great general dry-goods houses for which Chicago is so famous, is of general in terest to the trade and the public. Its great enterprise, large experience and unsurpassed facilities for obtaining the choicest fabrics and latest styles from the great fashion cen ters of Europe, and in the world's best mar kets, must make it the leading house in its Hues in this cbuntry. TStiggies Cheaper than Saddles. Why! Because, with improved machinery now a days, a good, substantial baggy can be made for flftv dollars, about the cost of two saddles. Two persons can ride in one buggy and save you one horse, consequently saddles have nearly gone out of existence. For particular send for an illustrated catalogue, mailed free on application.

The Illnminator. The existence of good feeling on the part of the French Nation for the peo ?le of this country is shown iy the presentation of a colossal bronze tlsurc of Fn cdoui holding lort Ihe torch of l.iherty. Beauty, with usefulness, is com bined in this immense work of art, as the bright, blazing torch will nerve the purpose of a beacon li;ht In the harbor of New York. There is another figure which, will chal lenge larger praise nnd ad miration than even the great work above referred to. 11 is liiusiraica ncre with, and represent the aged Med worthy St. Jacob, holding aloft in his hand that beacon which will guide aright all sailing upon the sea of life, whose waters abound with the sboalaand dan gerous places of sickness and disease. The light It casta is designed to show that St. Jacobs Oil ia the true and trusted means of keeping the bou7 on its proper coiirM-, and of easing and " righting it should it be unfortunately cast upon the shoals of rheumatism or other painful ailments. Thous ands of grateful ones throughout the world have S roved the value and felt the good of this t.reat erman Remedy, and are glad to recommend it to all needing the services of just such a remedy. In this connection Mr. John S. Briggs, a well known citizen of Omaha, Neb., told a newspaper man that he was terribly afflicted with an acute attack of rheumatism in his back. The disease, which had been preying upon him for years had drawn him out of shape. He resorted to every remedy known to physicians, but found no relief until hetried St. Jacobs On., one bottle of which effected a complete and radical cure. Another caso may justify reference : A VETKJJf SEAM AX'S TROUBLE.

After this forty-six years' service his eyesight failed him and he kept the Light at Chicago until the Government built the Gross Point Light here, when he was transferred. Whilo seated in my store this morning the Captain volunteered the following written statement: "This la to certify that I have been afflicted with rheumatism for twenty (20) years, both in my side and limbs. I am happy to say that, after using less than two bot tles of the St. Jacobs On., I am entirely free from pain, though still limping somewhat when walk ing, from long force of habit. C. W. IUivkton.'
