Dnrinr the winter of 1869 1 was em ployed as night operator in the railroad offloe At D , Iowa. The principal road between Chicago and Counoil Bluffs rnns through D , and the great irregular night trains, and the constant danger ot collision resulting therefrom, rendered the position of night operater by no means an easy one. xi may De wen to mention here, as necessary to the following atorv. that besides the railroad offloe, there was also at D a business offloe of the Union company. This we always poke of as the " down town " office. One stormy night, not far from eleven o'clock, I sat at my desk, and, for a wonder, idle. The wires had not called for some time, and I was leaning back in bj chair. Ustenincr to the wind out side and reflecting on the loneliness of my situation. The eastern train had crossed the river mora than an hour ago ; all the depot officials had gone off nome, ana, so iar as x Anew ; 1 was en tirely alone in the vast bnildinar. Finally, tired of thinking, I took np the evening paper, and glanced listless ly over its columns. - Among other things I read the detailed Account of a fearful tragedy that had ooonrred fifty miles np the river on the previous night. Three raftsmen, well known aa dee-Derate characters in that vicinity, had" entered the cottage of one Mat thews, a farmer living in an isolated spot had butchered the farmer and his children. terribly maltreated hia wife, and then departed as they came, havinaT taken with them whatever was handy. What interested me most was a full deseriDtion at the chief nf the villainous trio, Tim Lynch. Here it is: "FIts hundred do!lar reward will be paid for informal ion leading to the capture, dead or JUT, of Tun Lynch, tiie ringleader of the Matthaws tragedy. Lynch ia a remarkably large man, ni feet four inches in height, very beary, and broad across, the shoulders.

Kossuth hat, faded army overcoat, pants of gray lean, and heavy boots. The above reward will be paid to anv one furnishing pos itive tnf carnation of bis whereabouts. "Sheriff of county. At the very instant I finished reading the advertisement, there ooonrred the most remarkable coincidence that has ever rome under my observation, I heard a heavy tread on the stairs, and the door opened and there entered Tim Lynch ! The moment I set eyes upon nun I recognized him aa perfectly though I had known him all my life. The army overcoat and gray pants tacked into the heavy boots, the frame and shoulders, the si on oned bat pulled - down over bis right eye to conceal I was sure the car ; above all a desperate hunted look m his forbidding countenance all were not to be mistaken. I was as certain of bis identity as though he had step ped forward, pulled off his hat to show me the scar, and told me his name. To say that I was not alarmed at this , sudden and unwelcome intrusion would nej untrue, i am not a brave man, and my present situation, alone in the de pot with a hunted murderer, was by no means reassuring.

Ihat very day the connection had been cut for repairs. It was seldom used at any time, of course. But what of that? Xt was only a question of a few seconds store time. All these things went through" my mind with the rapidity of lightning as I went to the battery. Lynch regarded me from the corner of his uncovered eye with a suspicion that made me shake in my shoes. As I sat down he rose and came to my side. "look a here, yonng feller," he hissed in my ear, and his breath was sickening with the fames of liquor, "perhaps ya mean fair enough I hope ye do for your own sake. But I don't uaderstan' nothin' "bout them telly--Tmj1' nd I jist want ter tell ye that yer'd better be squar for by the eter nal God ef ye go back on me 111 stretol ye on this yere floor as stiff as ever I did a man yit 1" and I felt the cold muz- ile of his revolver on my ouee. er baps mv voice trembled a little, but I was still unmoved in my resolution, as I replied : "Never fear, sir; 111 tell him all about the stock." He muttered some thing to himself, and still remained s anding over me. You have beard, perhaps, how mnoh character and expression a telegraph operator can pnt into bis touch, W hy, there were dozens of different operators communicating with this office, and I could tell tbe instant, without ever making a mistake, who it was signaling. You could tell if a man was nervous from telearrsohinsr lust as you could from his handwriting. The call that I sent hurrying across the state to Conn cil Bluffs, must have rnag out on the ears of the operator like a snneK. O. B. Are von there?" was what I asked, and almost instantly came back a renlv in the affirmative. Then, with a trembling hand I rattled off my mes sage : " or the love ol uoa, leiegrspn to our down-town office at onoe. Tell them that Lynch is witain two feet ol me. and they must send help," A short pause, as though my message occasioned some surprise, and then came the response : " All right," which assured me I need not repeat. " Wal," growled the deep voice of Lynch, "are you going to send my message? " I nave sent it- sir. " What ! .Does all that tiokin' mean what I told you?" " Yes. and if you'll wait fifteen or twenty minutes, you'll get as answer. " Wal, I dunno as I want an answer. Jim. he'll understand it all right." " But ril tell you soon whether he's there or not. Bit down. So Lvnoh reluctantly took his seat. looking around at the doors and win dows onoe in a while in an uneasy way. I was determined to take him at any eost ; and I verily believe I should have planted myself in his path had he in sisted upon going now. " Tick, tick, tick! " the battery called nnt. and I listened to the messaae : "Keep cool. Gould has gone for the police." Strange it was, wasn't it, that should sit here and talk through two hundred and fifty miles of space with a man not half a mile from me ? What's that . signerfy ? inquired my companion, as the ticking ceased and I replied that the clerk had just written off the message and sent it out. He seemed satisfied and settled back in his chair, where he sat in sullen silence, his jaws going np and down as be chewed his weed. "O how slowly the minutes crept along t The suspense was terrible. I sat and watched tha minute hand of the clock, and five minutes seemed as many months. My companion seemed nerv ous, too. He moved uneasily in his chair. . " Ain't it about time we heard from Jim?" he asked at length. " We shall get word from him in few minutes now," I answered, and fell to watching the clcck again. . Five minutes more passed. Lynch got up and began pacing to-and fro across the room. At length be paused and said : " I don't believe I'll wait any more. Iv'e got to see a man down at the Penn sylvania house, and he u be abed el don't ,ret thar pretty soon." " Hold on a minute and TH see what they're up to," I cried hastily, and touched the key again. " Make haste,1 was my message. X shall lose him you do not. Not a moment to spare. Straightway came the reply, short but encouraging. " A squad of police started for the depot five minutes ago." Thank heaven 1 They ought to be Here now. x looked at Jjyncu and thought of the five hundred dollars. "Well, what's the word I" he growled impatiently. " Your friend is coming,'' I answered for want of a batter reply. " Comin' I Oomin't Whar?" " Coming to the offloe at Cohoe. He probably has an answer for yon." "An answer forme? Jim Fellers What should he answer for ?" Lynch stood in stupid thought for moment, and then he looked at me with a dangerous light in his eye. "Look a here, young feller," he cried, " it's my private opinion you're lyin' to m And ef ye are," here he uttered a horrible oath, "111 out your sa-uiKing peart out I x aon t know any thing 'bout that thar masheen, Bat swar Jim .Tellers nam t nothin to an swer.

As I before remarked, I am a timid man by nature. But this action only made me bolder. Everything depended on keeping bim few seconds longer. It must be done at any eost, I tried a new plan. "What do you mean, sir?" I shouted, rising, " By coming into this office and talking in that style ? Do you think x u endure itr Xjeave this room onse, sir, or 1 11 " and I advanoed threateningly toward, him. Mv unex pected attitude seemed to amuse him mere than anything else, but it silenced his suspicions. He pnt his hands in his pockets and delivered a loud , laugh in my lace. - " Wal, wal, my bantam, ye needn't git so cantankerous. Who A thought sncn a uttie breecnes aa you had such spunk? Haw, haw, bawl Why. I could chaw yon np 'thout mating two Dues oi yon. " Well, sir," I said, still apparently nnmollified, "either - sit down and hold your tongue, or else leave the office.'' And he good-naturedly eom- pnea. Onoe more we were sitting listening to tne ticking oi the clock as the min utes dragged their slow length along. Would help never come ? Three min utes more. Great heavens I The sus pense was becoming intolerable. I must go to the stairs snd listen if I die for it, I arose and took a step toward the door, but a voioe stopped me. "Hold ("shouted Lynch, standing up right, all his suspicions aroused once more. "Yer ean t go out ef that door aiore me. Come back here." "Sir!" Comeback here, or bv the eternal " and the pistol muzzle looked me in the face. He stood now half turned from the door, and I was facing it. Slowly and without a partiole of noise. I saw the knob turn, and a face under a blue eap peep in. Thank God ! Help naa come, x ieit a joy uncontrollable come over me. I must keep the mur derer's attention an instant longer, till some ote could spring upon him from behind. I walked straight up to him, but his qnick ear had caught a move ment behind. As he turned with an oath, I sprang upon him and bore down his arm just as the revolver went off, the ball bnrvinar itself harmlessly in the floor. Before be could free himself from my grasp, half a dozen officers were upon him. and he was auicklv se cured. The next morning- the papers were filled with glowing accounts of tbe cap ture of the murderer, and praise of mv conduct. The principal business men of the town made up a purse of five hundred dollars and presented it to me, and this, with the reward that was paid me tbe following week, enabled me to get msrried at Christmas. But I phndder at the remembrance of that half honr I spent alcne with Tim Lvnoh : and I don't think one thousand dollars would tempt me to go through it again ! Turkish j. run.

Lamknsss in hogs is caused some times by the large pores in the back part of the legs getting clogged. They are a little above the knuckles in the back part of the legs. Wash the legs in soap and luke-warm water, nsing a stiff brush and rubbing hard till the pores open, and when tne pores are washed open the lameness will leave. This has been tried in numerous in stances with great success. Chbomo-IiIthoobafhio Process. In place of using a special stone for eaon color, necessitating as many sep arate impresions aa there are colors, the entire subject is drawn upon a single stone, and a proof is taken on a thin sheet of copper. This sheet is then eat out carefully according to the desired contour of the colors, and upon each of the portions is fixed a olid block of color, previously pre- prepared. The whole is combined into one form, and is printed on an ordinary lithograph press, all the enlnrw at once, the moisture of the sheet being sufficient to take off and hold the colors as the sheet goes through the press. A SnrpLK Plan of Venttlatiow. The following simple method for venti lating ordinary sleeping and dwelling rooms is recommended by Mr. Hinton, in his "Fhysiolegy of .Practical Use: 'A piece of wood, three inches high. and exactly as long aa the breadth of the window, is to be prepared. Xjet the sash be now raised, the slip of wood placed on the sill, and the sash drawn closely upon it. If the slip has been well-fitted, there will be no draft m oon- sequenoe of the sash at its lower part ; but the top of the lower sash will over lay the bottom of the upper one, and between the two bars perpendicular ourrents ot air, not felt as draft, will enter and leave tbe room. Srzn of Barrels. A president of an agricultural society calls attention to the fact that there are in a standard le gal barrel only 100 quarts, while the or dinary nour barrel, most in use among farmers in the sale of potatoes and ap ples, contains nearly one-eighth more. Farmers sell their produoe in flour bar rels, and merchants transfer the same to standard barrels, making a proiit on quantity, as well as on the price. In the sale of 800 barrels of potatoes from a I arm. the proprietor loses 100 barrels. worth $250 for which be might as well be paid. The middle-man. not tbe con sumer, profits by this. Farmers, see to it that yon employ the one hundred quart barrels hereafter. Pacific Hu tu frets Facts A boot thb Human Body. The number of bones in the frame-work of the human body is 260, 108 of which are in the feet and hands, there being in each 27. The quantity of blood in adults is on an average 80 pounds, whioh passes through the heart once in four minutes. Only one-tenth the human body is solid matter. dead body weighing 120 pounds was dried in an oven, by way of experiment, till all moisture was expelled, when its weignt was round to be but 13 pounds. Egyptian mummies are bodies thor oughly dried, wnd usually weigh about 7 pounds. The lungs of an adult ordinarily inhale 40 cubic inches of air at every inspiration, and if we breathe 20 times in a minute the quantity of air consumed in that period will be 809 cubic inches, or 48.000 inches an hour, and 1,152.000 inches in a day, whioh is equal to 86 hogsheads.

Of all the plants for the protec tion of young orchards from rabbits, I w iiuuung tnat so weu agrees with my own experience and judgment as tbe following : Mix soft soap and the flowers of sulphur to the consistency of a thick paste, and apply once or twice' during the winter with a brush. The other, whioh is by all means the best, is to take a pieoe of common building paper, about eighteen inches in height and ten or twelve wide, and bend it loosely around the tree, and tack it with a single tack near the center, and the work is done in the most effective manner. Common building felt will also do. Before putting tbe paper around the tree, it should be examined for borers. The paper will probably retain its position for two or three years. It will also afford a good pro tection to trees that have been set out during the fall. Cor. Rural World. A New Cotjnter-Ibbitant. A new kind of mustard-plaster has been in vented which promises to be superior to the old-fashioned sort. It is known as the Omphalio mustard-plaster, and the mustard is laid on sheets of a thin fabrio in spots of about the size of a dime, so that any desired number can be applied. It ia only necessary to dip in water and lay the plaster on where desired. It is claimed that the disoosi- tion of the mustard in spots is the best way oi applying this ooonter-irntant, as its effects are a copy of the results of natural efforts which generally ap pear as spots or pnstules a rather fan ciful idea. The other claim is better that the skin is irritated only in patch es, and that the process of irritation can be continued longer without un pleasant results in consequence of patches of undisturbed skin being left to execute the healing process. This method of making plaster has also been applied in tbe Omphalio fly-blister A Fresh Water Spbino in the Sea. Lieut. K. D. Hitchcock. U. S. N. assistant coast survey, commanding the ooast-surveying steamer endeavor, un der date of Maroh 18, reports to the superintendent of the ooast survey as follows, relative to what is apparently a iresn water spring in the sea : " We have fcund just above Matanzas Inlet, about two and a half miles from shore. in 29 degrees, 46 minutes, 8 seconds nonn, iongitadeBl degrees, 12 min utes, 15 seconds west, what is appa rently a fresh water spring. The water at the suriaoe is violently disturbed for a spaoe of thirty feet in diameter. The first day we crossed this place the water was coming np with such violence as to throw the ship from her course, and the second time, although it was smooth,' the vessel eould be kept on her course but a short time. The sound ings in the centre of the spriDg gave 23 fathoms, and a specimen of the bot tom of very clear, broken shells. The soundings from the centre to the limit of the distu rbed water, decreased to nine fathoms. The water at the sur face is brackish. A minute examina tion of tbe spring and its locality is to be made. The Luck of Storm Lake. Tbe advent of Storm Lake Brolinska into this world wa. attended by more auspicious circumstances than the fates usually accord to humanity at the threshold of life. The western-bound trains, with several hundred passengers, were snow-bound at Storm Lake, Iowa, a village on the line of the Illinois Cen tral railroad, eighty miles east of Sionx City. The hotels of tbe place, as well as tbe private residences, wore soon crowded by the beleagured passenger. On one train was a car of Mennonites oo their way t join their countrymen in Dakota. They refused to leave their car, and next morning it was ascertained that Mrs. Brolinska bad become a moth er. The report of the occurrence hav ing become generally known, steps were at onoe taken to welcome tbe little stranger. The mayor called a meeting of the council, which declared the day a public holiday ; and voted the hospi talities oi tbe ci'.y to the baby and its mother. A procession was soon parad ing the streets, ami the ruotln r mill baby were carried in triumph to the city hall, where speeches were made by t he mayor. Judge Kidder, delegate to con gress from Dakota, and several promi- nent citizens. The announcement was then made that a five-acre plat of ground was to be given to the baby, who was christened by a popular vote Storm Lake Brolinska, The procession then reformed and escorted Master Brolinska to the station, and the train moved on amid the firing of cannon and the ring ing of belhk Tremendous Flood.

A tremendous flood occurred on the evening of the 19th in the towns of Wrentham and bottom dv tne Dress ing away ol a dam wnicn retains tne water oi wniton s pona, tne source oi Mill river. The sadden bursting of this dam hurled a tremendous flood upon the lands below, sweeping away mills, bridges, oountry roads and dams in its course, and cansincr damage to the extent of between $100,000 and 200.000. Half a mile below this mm was toe saw and grist mill of the Elliot Felting company, known as Fisher's mill. Such was the force ot tne waters on rescuing here that it burst the thirty-foot dam and carried along the saw mill, a por tion of the establishment, as though it waq a tov shoo. Down the stream nan a mile further was the tri.ok of a New England and New York railroad, some forty or fifty feet above the river bed. Beneath this the water usually passed bv an arched culvert about ten or fifteen feet in widtn. no nrmwas tne emDan ment of sand above the culvert that it stood apparently intact for the space of an hour, and then being undermined, it caved in for a distance of 150 to 200 feet, forming an impassable barrier to the waters above. When the road-bed sank, a freight train was within one hundred feet of the place, though not in motion, but the Kreat volume of water had already passed tne raiiroaa, and turned on to tbe achievement oi its greatest feat, forty rods below, at the city cotton mills. So thorough was the work of demolition that the cupola alone remained standing unon the plain. The machinery and water wheel shared the fate of tbe structure. One body was swept down on the flood, but it was supposed that of a man for some months missing, do iar as known no lives were lost, but the dam age to property is very large. A Faiislan Hoax, Lucy Hooper writes from Paris to the Philadelphia Press : " It is not yet the first of April, and yet a peculiarly unpleasant trick, whioh was recently perpetrated on a quite elderly couple residing on the Chausse d'Autin, might argue that that festive anniversary had already arrived. M. and Mme. X. and their four children had just finished dinner, of which the chief dish had been a piece of roast veaL Their cook had requested permissisn to go out for a little while, which permission had been granted. Suddenly a ring was heard at the bell, and a note was handed to Mme. X. It rana follows "Hadaxe: I have just learned that the meat which was served to you for dinner to day was not veal, but oh, bow can 1 write it 7 a piece of the little nephew of the batcher.

"This precious missive was signed with the name oi tne cook. Mme. a straighway went into the hysterics ; M. X. was taken deathly siok, and the four children screamed in chorus. In the midst of the uproar in walked the cook and stood in blank amazement on beholding the oonfusion in the usually orderly household. Of course, she had never written any such note. The butcher was guiltless of any assassina tion, and the Teal was good, honest veal as ever was cooked. A scandalous hoax bad been perpetrated by some unknown joker. Poor Mme. X. was ill for twenty-four hours thereafter, and the husband in his wrath had invoked the aid ot the police to discover the autnor oi tne unseemly jest, A Postponed Burial. The pall-bearers at funeral in North Carolina were lately relieved from dnty in a manner not anticipated. Xhe funeral ooonrred at the time of the re cent flood, and the procession on its way to the cemetery had to cross a small creek. In crossing the creek, which was rising rapidly, the wagon stuck fast, and those in charge of the coffin were rescued with difficulty. No sooner was the wagon-bed .relieved of the weight of the ten bearers than a new troubleoocurred. The box of the wagon rose upon tne water and floated away. carrying the coffin with it. In vain those in the procession attempted to recover the body. The wagon-box capsized and diaamieared- bnt the coffin floated still, and, despite the energetic efforts to secure it, was carried away by the raging waters and soon lost to sight in the distance. .Naturally, this little oc enrrenee prevented the consummation of the funeral ceremonies, a body being one ol tne nrst requisites for such au occasion. -Days afterward, when the flood had subsided, a ooffin was discov ered upon a pile ef driftwood, thirty miles from where the accident at the funeral occurred. It proved to be the one lost, and was, with its contents. uninjured in any way ; so that tbe cere monies were not prevented, only post poned. Crossing the Channel. The life-preserver in which Panl Boynton undertook to cross the English channel last week, from Dover to Bon- logne, a distance of forty miles, failing only on account of darkness overtaking him seven miles from shore, when the accompanying boat took bim in out of the wet, is thus described : Mr. Bojnton's dress is mostly of India-rubber, and is so arranged that it can be inflated, and rendered not only buoyant but water-proof. Boynton, on his way over from New York, jumped overboard some ten or fifteen miles from the ooast of Ireland, landing with safety. Recently, in London, he gave an exhibition on the Thames, he and two others floating from Westminster to Ureenwich, the trio eating, drinking. and Bmoking en route. More recently xsoynton gave an exhibition in the pres ence of her majesty, in tbe waters of Dontnampton, whioh resulted in several suits of dress being ordered for the royal yacht. The dress is so arranged that the wearer can carry not only a supply of provisions, but rockets and other signal apparatus, with a fair wind Boynton generally gets a small sail. He also uses a double paddle to propel nimseii aioDg. Beaut j In lirms Appropriateness is ab olately neces sary to s c ire b -cuty iu ilreo.

MotiMn can invent, if worn m the head of a coarse-faced woman, bearing a murket-basket on her arm, excites no emotion but that of the ridiculous. The second requisite to beauty in dress is tbe unity of effect. As in every itpartment, so in every toilet, there should be one ground, tone or dominant color, which should rule all the others, and there should be a style of idea to which everything shonld be subjected. We may illustrate the effect of this principle in a very famil iar case. It is generally conceded that the majority of womeu look better in mourning than they do in their ordina ly apparel ; a comparatively plain per son looks almost tian.lsomo m simple black. Now why is thia ? Simply be cause mourning requires a severe uni formity of colors ami objects which go to make up the ordinary female costume. and which very few women have such skill in using as to produoe really beau tiful effects.

The veteran Van derbilt has, from yonth up, been as careful of his health as if he had been invalid. He owes his vigorous eighty years to the exactest observation of hygienio laws. No heavy dinners, no late suppers, no unseemly hours, no frequent drinks for him. Without ed ucation, he has high intelligence, and wonderful common sense rarer per haps than genius. A. x. Stewart nas oeen as regular as a Geneva watch for fifty years. So has Moses Taylor ; so has George Law : so has Royal Phelps. So have all these who hold big purses and exercise un seen power. The Wall street speculators, reckless as they seem, if they ride long on the upper waves, preserve their digestion, snd keep their heads cool. Daniel Drew would have been buried years ago, had he not lived abstemiously, and taken innumerable bowls of sun shine. Jay Gould may not have a heart, thongh he has a stomach, and provides for it wisely. His brain is worth too much to him to have it clonded by bil iousness, dyspepsia, repletion, or shat tered nerves. Thev who live free and fast, like Leonard Jerome, John Tobin, Henry N. Smith, and A. B. Stookwell, went under in due season. Dissipation compels its followers to pay more usuri ous interest than any Shylock of Broad street. great journalists. Horace Greeley, fonnder of the Tri bune, was always an avoider of all ex cesses save those of work. He never could have accomplished half that he did. had he not eschewed tobacco. liquor, ana tne common vices, f or many years he used his brain from ten to twelve hours a day, and never needed other stimulant than a hearty appetite i i i - i. . t. i lor laoor, wiuou, to nia uyuig iiuur, was not appeased. James uordon .Bennett, wno aione and unaided, created the Herald (mak ing it the best newspaper property in the western world out of nothing but brains, energy, and plnck), was, in bis private life, without stain. Constantly as he was abused and portrayed as a moral monster, be never owed anybody a dollar : never gambled : never drank: never was guilty of an intrigue. All his faults were professional, and these consisted chiefly in editing his news paper in the manner that seemed to him most effective. He might at times have been intoxicated with the success of the Herald, but that was the only intoxication be ever knew. Henry J. Raymond, the only strong man the Times has had, was temperate in habit, not less than in disposition. Few journalists here have done so much work on a paper, day after day, week after week, month after month, as Ray mond did on bis. Unless he had been attuned to moderation, and subject to hygienic laws, he could not have per formed tne wonderful task of. writing out, aa he once did, nine columns and a half ef one of Daniel Webster's speeches, at a single sitting. It is the same in journalism as in liter ature, art, business, everything. The men who make their mark, who refuse to be borne down, and who, if borne down, come up again, and stay up, are the men who do not dissipate. There are brilliant fellows with many vices who flash like a rocket, but. like it. they go "out in the darkness, and are silent forever. Good sense and perse verance out-rank brilliancy, and these, when sustained, demand freedom from dissipation. Ethics have a value above ethics ; they are tbe base and build of right being. All experience worth having proves that no sort of perma nent snooess can be achieved without rigid adherence to moral law. Wemen as Artists. The Baltimore Gazette, speaking of women artists, says : That tbe ranks of the painters should be recruited from among women as well as from among men is natnral and right. Rea soning merely from natnral laws. woman shonld have all the delicacy of touch, all tbe Artistic sense of beauty of color and harmony of effect, and especially the subtle sentiment requisite to make an artist. In certain branches of art she might not be able to oom mand success. But art has an infinite variety. It is as wide as nature itself, as varied as men and man s life ; as high and vague and imaginative as the unseen world and all the airy creations of fancy. All women, because they study art, may not be Rosa Bonheurs or Angelica ivaufmana. They may not even reacn tne level of Miss Hosmer. and may be oompelled to forsake the oongressiooally flower-strewn paths of tne vinme rteams. xney will undergo a process of sifting as men do who make art a profession.. They must have the same qualities, love of art for arts sake, a vivid perception of the salient points ot beauty, a deft hand, a true eye. and above all. perseverance. The poet may be born, not made ; but the artists has to be bom and made too. All that we have said is, it will be seen, no discouragement to a woman artist. Who has defter, more supple hands? Whose ideas of beauty and fitness respond more quickly to cultiva tion? Who can be educated to love and appreciate art and artistio arranae- ment, and tbe great loveliness of na ture, from the perfection of a flower, and the wavy beauty of a field of wind rippled wheat, to the gathering storm of a summer's day ? Her impressions are quick and vivid. Why should she not, then, be a punter ? She has in sight ; why cannot she put the insight into a tangible lorm, with technical skill, proper color, light, shade, per spective, correct drawing 7 And ttill, if she cannot do this, the time is not thrown away for the woman who has studied art. We do not speak of paint ing as an elegant amusement, a de lightful occupation of spare hours, a source of gratification in preserving memorable places, persons, and many of the smaller pleasures of memory whioh ordinarily fade away and are lost to us. We might very well do this, bnt it is not the intention with which we started out. That was the pursuit of art and a profession by women artists. In doing so we have dismissed from contemplation all who have no special talent. Such persons had bet ter abandon art at onoe. Its ranks are crowded enough. There is room for more, but not at the bottom. Half way up the pressure is relieved, and at the top of the ladder there is no com plaint of want of elbow-room. There fore it is of those who have at least some aptitude for art we spoke when wa said that its study was not time wasted even to those who cannot hope to attain the highest station. Project for the Civilization of Africa. A bold project for the civilization of Africa is announced, under the sanc tion of Capt. Hir John H. Glover. Mr. R. N. Fowler and other well known eentlemen. This is the formation of a canal for commercial purposes from the mouth of the river Helta on the At lantic, in the neighborhood of Cape Juby and Cape Bujador, opposite the Canary Islands, to the northern bend of the Nigir at Timbuctoo, a distance of 740 miles. Such a highway woiili open up tt.eAfricau continent to the world, and it is believed that no formi dable obstacle opposes its construction, bnt that the confirmation of the great Desert of Hnliara favors the scheme. For 030 miles of the distance there is a great hollow, supposed to be 250 feet below the level of the Atlantic, wi.ich was probably at one time covered by the sea. This low country is separated from the ooast by a broken ridge of about thirty miles, through which the river Belta runs for twenty-five miles, so that all that would be necessary in order to reach it is to deepen the chan nel of the river, out through the ridge, and let the Atlantic fall into the vast arid basin. In this way a vast sheet of water would be formed, the climate would be improved, the oountry would become more fertile for pasturage, and agriculture and commerce would be carried into the heart of Africa. Around the Dlnuer-Tabls. A merely bounteous table is not al ways welcome or appetizing. Two or three dishes, well prepared and daintily arranged, are superior to a dozen care lessly and inartistioally put on. Hospi tality is often confounded with profu sion, and some of us are apt to believe that we play the host ill unless we per suade our guests into eating a great deal. This sort of entertainment is simply material, though it ia commoner than we think. The pleasures of the table should ap peal to the eye and mind as well as to the palate. Form should be consulted; grace should be indispensable. The savor of food gains much from its set ting and its accompaniments. A few flowers, perfect order and neatness, with congeniality and sympathy about the board, will insure what an Apician feast might not. The day of uniformity in table furni ture has passed, the present fancy being tor oddness and variety. This, apart for picturesqneness, is both convenient and economical, since the breaking of one or two pieces does not necessitate the purchase of an entirely new set. It is not unusual now to see on elegant breakfast tables each coffee-cup differ ent from his neighbor, and no two of tbe plates alike. Bnt it is at tea most informal of meals that the greatest variety and the prettiest effects may be produced. Flowers have come to be indispensa ble to mmv tablea. anrl Miav will tie. ere long, let us nope, indispensable to all. They need not be rare er costly. They are so beautiful, even tbe plainest and poorest of them, that nothing else can supply their plaoe. A few green leaves, a aozen wayside daisies, a buncn of violets, impart a charm and awake in us a touch of nature. But more than all that is on the table is the spirit brought to it. There can be no high enjoyment of the senses un attended by sympathy. Disquietude of mind at table is the precursor of indi gestion. They who are invited to din ner, and take thereto anxiety and dis content, defraud the host of a proper return for his hospitality. No one has a right to go socially where he does not hone to irive some sort of com nen na tion. The tablecloth shonld be the flag ot traoe in the battles of every-day life. we anoma respect it, and, in its pres ence, commend ourselves to peace. Science at the New Farts Opera. Under this heading Nature condenses from its French namesake an interest ing description of some of the scientific appliances incorporated in the construc tion of the great theatre recently com pleted. The first difficulties to be en countered related to the warming and ventilation of so vast a spaoe, compli cated by the changing condition of emptiness and repletion with spectators. alternate union and separation of the atmosphere of the state and auditorium as the curtain is raised or lowered, etc. To raise the temperature with sufficient rapidity before the commencement of a performance, and to provide for a re newal of air at the rate of nearly 3,000, 000 cubic feet an hour, hot water and hot air furnaces are employed, fourteen in number, and consuming daily about ten tons of coal. To carry off the viti ated air, the upper draft created by the central luster is utilized through sev eral large conduits communicating with ainerent parts 01 tne house; while fresh air is admitted through oneninira meas uring from twenty-four to thirty square metres. 10 avert a lar too common source" of danger to the performers, the footlights are ingeniously airauged to uuxu npaiue aowu, weir reversed glsss chimneys being oonnected with a trans verse pipe through which a current of air circulates strong enough to draw the flame downward and keep the me talio burner from becoming heated. These and all other gaslights in the building are so contrived that they can be suddenly lowered for a night effect without the risk of extinguishing a sin gle one. Ia a lower room are contained gasometers of hydrogen and oxygen for tne oxy-nyario light, and a gigantic gal vanic battery of 300 Bnnsen cells, the nitrous vapors irom wnion are neutral- lzed by ammonia. From this battery wires aggregating nearly a mile in length are led to the stage, where the intensity 01 tne current, may be varied to produoe different optical effects with the electric light. In the opera of "Moses," throwing this light into watery vapor, a genuine rainbow is pro jected on the scene, and numerous other brilliant phenomena are displayed. Throughout every department of this magnificent building scienoe seems to nave been brought to the aid of art and the government exnenditnre of 40.. 000,000 francs, whioh has aroused the jealousy of the pnreiy scientific sooie- ues, nas at au events resulted m show ing how advanoed civilization may be concentrated in a "mere place of amuse ment. A NEW St. Louis reporter. wetUrur in late from a fire, was told to write some stirring head-Junes for his report, and be did. They ran thus: "Feast of the Fire Fiend The Forked-Tongued Demon Licks with its Lurid Breath a Lumber Pile t Are the Scenes of Bos ton and Chicago to be Repeated ? Loss A Sboono Fathkb Matthew. Who is there that does not respect the memo- ryot Father Matthew, the great ohamp ion of temperance. Innumerable socie ties bear nia- honored name ; but there is one man who has struck a more sure death-blow to intemperance, and that man is Dr. J.

Pgar Bitters are a purely Vegetable) preparation, made chiefly from tbe na tive herbs found on the lower range oi the Sierra Nevada mountains of Califor nia, the medicinal properties of which are extracted therefrom without tbe naa of Alcohol. , The question ia almost daily asked, "What is the cause of the unparalleled success of Vinegar Bit ters?" Out answer is, that they remove the cause of disease, and the patient re covers his health. They are the great blood purifier and a life-giving principle, a perfect Senovator and Invigorator of the system. Never before in the history of the world has a medicine been compounded -poaaessing the remarkable qualities of Vihbsab Bittbrs in healinc the oak ef every disaan man ia heir to. They are gentle PurgStive as well as a Tonic, relieving Coafre8tb?n or Inflammation oi the Liver and Visceral Orgas. in Biliooa Diaeaaea. - - The properties of Da. "VVaijcke'b flKKOAK Bittiks are Aperient, DisnhoreOa, Carminative, Nutritions, Laxative, lliorertio, Sedative, CounW-Irritant. SudoiiCo, Altera ttve. and Anti-BUknu. Grateful Thousands proclaim Tn. SOAB Bitters tbe moat wonderful In vigorant that ever sustained tbe sinking system. . .'. 1 No Person can tale these Bitten according to directions, and remain long unwell, provided their bones are not de stroyed by - mineral poison or other means, and vital organ wasted beyond repair. Bilious. Remittent and Inter mittent i overs, which are so preva lent in the valleys of our great river throughout the United States, especiall" those of the Mississippi, Ohio, Missouri, Illinois, Tennessee, Cumberland, Arkan sas, Rod, Colorado, Brazos, Rio Grande. Pearl, Alabama, Mobile, Savannah, Ro anoke, James, and many others, witn their vast tributaries, throughout our entire country during the Summer and Autumn, and remarkably so during sea sons of' unusual heat and dryness, aa invariably accompanied by extensive de rangements of the stomach and livery and other abdominal viscera. In their treatment, a purgative, exerting a pow erful influence upon these- various or gans, is essentially necessary. There is no cathartic for tbe purpose equal to Dr. J. Walker's Vinegar Hitters, as they will speedily remove the dark colored viscid matter with which tha bowels are loaded, at tbe same time stimulating the secretions of tbe liver, and generally restoring the healthy functions of the digestive organs. Fortify the body against disease by purifying all its fluids with Vinkoa Bitters. No epidemio can take bold of a system thus fore-armed. Dyspepsia or Indigestion, Head ache, Paia in the Shoulders, Coughs, Tightness of tbe Chest, Dizziness, Soar Eructations of tbe Stomach, Bad Taste ia the Mouth, Bilious Attacks, Palpita tation of the Heart, Inflammation of the Lungs, Pain in the region of tbe Kid neys, and a hundred other painful symp toms, are the offsprings of Dyspepsia. One bottle will prove a better guarantee of its merits than a lengthy advertise ment. Scrofula, or King's Evil, wfilti Swellings, Ulcers, Erysipelas, Swelled Keck, Goitre, Scrofulous Inflammations, Indoles:: Inflammations, Mercurial Affections, Olfi Sores, Eruptions of the Skin, Soro Kyea, eta. In these, as in all other constitntional ins eases. Walker's Vihkoar Bittkbs have shown their great enratire powers in the most obstinate and intractable cases. For Inflammatory and Chronic Rheumatism, Gout, Bilious, Romit tentandlnternutteut Fevers, Diseases ol the Blood, Liver, Kidneys and Bladder, these Bitters have no equal. Such Diseases are eansed by Vitiated Blood. Mechanical Diseases. Persons en gaged in Paints and Minerals, such as Plumbers, Type-setters, Gold-beaters, and Miners, aa they advance iu life, are subject to paralysis of the Bowels. To guard against this, take a dose of Walkks's Vl boak Bittkrs occasionally. For Skin Diseases, Eruptions, Tet ter, Salt-Rheum, Blotches, Spots, Pimples, Pustules, Boils, Carbuncle, Ring-worms. Scald-bead, Sore Byes, Erysipelas, Itch, Scurfs, Diacoiorations of the Skin, Humors and Diseases of the Skin of whatever name or nature, are literally dug np and earned out of the system in short time by the nse of these Bitters. Pin, Tape, and other 'Worms, larking in the system of so many thousauda, are effectually destroyed and removed. Ho system of medicine, no vermifuges, no an. thehninitics will free the system from worms like these Bitters. For Female Complaints in yonng or old, married or single, at the dawn of wo manhood, or the torn of life, these Tunic Bitters display so decided an influence tnat improvement is soon perceptible. Cleanse the Vitiated Blood when. erer you find its impurities bursting thjvogh the skin in Pimples, Eruptions, or Sor)i cleanse it when you find it obstructed And sluggish in tbe veins ; cleanse it when tt is foul ; your feelings will tell yon when. Keep the blood pure, and the health of the system will follow. at. H. McDOU Al.n A CO..' Droirrirta and Oen.
