Quite a number have enrolled their names, and piid Iheir quota. Will not many others respond to the easy requirement?, and thereby "strengthen the work !" Names can be sent in by those who cannot attend the Wednesday afternoon (3 o'clock) meeting. Miss Julia Brown, (Treasurer W. T.

The i o'clock Murphy Meeting of Sabbath afternoon, 3d inst., was largely attended. Bro. Bennett did himself great credit and reflected honor upon his "Fatherland." Last Wednesday afternoon meet ing in T. Hall was one of peculiar interest. Mrs, Cedarholm, a Norwe gian by birth, and wife of the first misionary to Sweden, was with ns. Having been engaged ia the first Cru sade of 1S74 in Nebraska, she gave ns some rare sketches of those times. One of the gentlemen in attendance said, as he passed out, "I wish all of Hillsboro could have heard her." "Don't do right unwillingly, And plop to plan and measure: lis working with the hart and soul That makes our duty pleasure." To that pleasure is often added re trurJ, as will appear in the following extract from a letter to the women of the Hillsboro T. TJ , written by a man who was visited in prison some two years since by them: "Ceaig, Mo., Jan. 18, 1878. "Dear Sisters in Christ : Think ing that it might interest you some what, I thought I would drop a line be a to you. I feel to thank God for what he has done for me, through your instrumentality, and I am trying, by the help of Him who died for tn, to persuade others to come unto Him. "I find msny trials and templa tions to await me, but I also find that when I do my duty, and look to Christ and trust entirely upon Him, He always brings me out "more than conqueror." "When I think of my weakness and littleness, I sometimes almost des pair, but when I remember what Christ has done for me, this leads roe to look to Him, au with the full iieB3 of His grace I am made strong. "I abk and interest in your pray ers, for myself, and upon my efforts to persuade others to love and serve God. "May the Lord of life bless ycu and your labors of lova and mercy, and keep you f.iith.'ul unto the end, is the earnest prayer of your gratefal frieu L Most respectfully, A Touching Incident. The following effecting story was related by Dr. Schnelby, of Mary land, at a meeting laid in New York to listen to the expeiiencc of twenty reformed inebriates : A drunkard, who had run through his property, returned to his cheer less and unfinished home. Ha en tered his empty hall; anguish was gnawing his heart strings, and lang uage was inadequate to c-xprcsa his Agony as ha entered his wife's apart nient and there beheld the victims of his base npp-jtite his loving wife and darling child. Morose and sullen, be seated him self without paying a word: he could not speak; he could not look at them. The sad hearted mother s.'.id to the little angel by her wde, "Coaxe. my child, it is time to go to bed;" and that little one, aa she wis wont, knelt l-y her mother's lap, gazed wistfully in the face of her sufi'ering parent, and motionless as a piece of chiseled statuary, slowly repeated her Eightly orison. v htn she had finished, ild the (U: (but six years ot age) said to ber mother, "Dear ni'immn, may I not offer up one more prayer f " "Yes, yr-p, my tweet pet, pray ;" and she lifted her ticy 1 andf , clos ed her eyes, and prayed: "O God, spare, O spare my dear papsvT That prayer was lifted with elec tric rapidity to the thrcna of , God. It was heard on high ; it was hoard un earth. The resposive "Auion!" burst from the father's lip?, and his heart of stone became a heart of flesh. Wifa and child were cla ped to his bosom, and in tearful peki ttnee he said, "My child yon have saved me fr.om the grave of a drunk ard ! I'll sign the pledge 1" From California. The Christian Advocate of San Francisco, California, gives the fob lowing : The Murphy movement is march ing onward. Hermits sre multiplied ns tho drops of the morning. The blue-ribbon badge is worn, which is well. Every honest man should show his colors. Mr. Allen, of Colo rado, who is a veteran in the Murphy army, takes the lead. The ladies take an active part, prominent among whom are Mrs. French and Mrs. Stephens. Two or three religious Ec-nices Lutc been held in drinking saloons, with promise of good results. Rev. W. C. Chatten is the champion street worker iu all reformatory movements. Daily sen-ices are continued this week in the Central M. E. Church at 2 o'clock p. sr. The meetings are in the interest of temperance and religion. There have been several conversions and the presence of the spirit in manifested on every occa sion. Captain Osborn. of the U. S. Navy, delivered an impromptu but eloquent address on Sunday evening, and 175 signed the pledge. To the Woman's Christian Temperance Unions of Ohio. Dear Sisters : The object of this ettcr is to call attention, First : To I cue interests oi "uur Lmon, a pa per published by tho National Woman's Christian Temperance Union, and relying on our aid for its success.

We appeal to you with confidence, and in tho name of Him, who from Abraham till now, has required of His servants the willing sacrifice of means to carry on His work. Since Ho has so honored us by calling us to this special woik, let us with gladness and thanksgiving make our contributions. While we do not make this a basis of member ship, but rather prayer and similar work, we request that our towr.s be eanvissed and that all interested contribute fifteen cents per annum. Our officers are working without remuneration, only a small part of their necessary expenses being met, bnt gladly working for love of the cause given to us. All moneys for the State Treasury should be sent to Mrs. E. J. Thoup son, Hillsboro, Ohio, who will duly receipt therefor, and also through our paper mentioned above. Mrs. II. C. McCABE, Pres't W. C. T. U. of Ohio. Miss Esther Pcgit, Cor. Sec'y, pro. tem. January 2i," 1878. The President has distinctly noti fied cffi?ers of the army that he will look upon drunkenness with marked disfavor, and that no leniency may expected from him in any and all matters where the abuse, if not the use, of intoxicating liquors ia con cerned. After this solemn warn ng, rigorous execution of the senten ces imposed in due course by courts martial may be expected. Farm and Household. Tub Largest op American Faks. Miller & Lux are said to have TOif.OtO acres in all California, an area nearly nr. grent ns the State of llhode Island. There must be at lea"t i'M,000 acres in one body, runuiug in a strip ten or twelve tuiies wide and hixty miles long from Hill's Fairy southward. The canal farm is, therefore, a very small proportion of it. It is covered with farmhouses as well equipped in all respects as the canal farm. They own about 80,000 head of critt!e, and lat year their new-born calves numbered 25,000 head. Of sheep thoy bftvo a vast number, as well as of hogs, aud they furnish the largest shore of fresh meat for the San Francisco market They can start a hord from Kern county and drivo it through to San Francisco, r.ud have good pasturage on their own laud for the cattlo to feed on every night on the route. Stockman Independent. A GROUSE FLIRTATION. In the breeding season, the coe'es select come hollow fallen tree, aud strutting up and down, bat it with their wings, making a muillod, drumming sound, that can bo heard for half a mile. The beat is at irregular intervals, beginuiug F.low!y and measuredly, and gradually increasing in qnickness, until it ends in a roll. If the bird sncceeds in finding a dry I07, perfectly hollow and well placed, hisattoo of welcome can bo heard a mile, and i3 one cf the pleasantest of woodland pounds. It has the same ac celerated pace, and is about the same duration as the call of the raccoon, and is only heard in the day-time, as the raccoon's is only heard at eight. When its mate hears the drumming, she slowly approaches, and coquettishly picking at speds she does not waut, conies within sight of the drumming-log. No maiden is seemingly more unconscious of the man she desires to attract that is this russet dame of ber gallant musician. A snail is on the May-apple plant right be fore her ; she pecks at it three times be fore hitting it, and then scratches negli gently r.t imaginary seeds. The cock niiscs his raff till it looks like Quon rj:ztibeth's ; tho yellow skin beneath flashes witn pride, lie spreads his tail like a fan, he thrums his guitar, clucks aa introductory welcome or two, and launches himself out and flies to his bride. If, however, another cock hear iho drumming, he feels insulted at the 3onnd on what he considers his own do main. ETo flies to the drumming-log an 1 dashes at the brave drummer, and the one who is inferior in courage and strength yields his place to the bolder, sad retires discomfited. Scribner. " This may seem a work ol superero gation," ho remarked, as he toddled down to the front gate, and commenced operations on the hinges with a feather and a bottle of oil ; " but the critical period is approaching when a young man has to be handled very delicately, and just the least little bit of a set-back may throw things. The smallest creak might be disastrous ; and this gate's got to stand for two girls more beside Xmogeno." Olt I"t. Hiit-tr used to ts.y, when ne could ntt di"v -r the cause of a man's si.-l.nts", " V.'e'ii try this and we'll try that. SVil hhoirl iiito tha tree, and if any thiag fa";, well imd good." " Aye," replied a v.a-', ' I fesr this is too com monly the case, and, ia your shooting in to the tree, the first tiling that generally falls i3 the patient." A public trial of an endless rail sys tem has been made at the Pare dta Eu'tes Chaumont, Paris. Three small cars made up into a train moved readily over a track formed by articulated rails, which were raised after the passage 'f the cars and laid down again iu front of then). The train, propelled by steam i r horses, may, at the will of the driver, take any direction, even to running over treacherous and sandy ground. Those clafisio quotations which abound in speeches cf a bygone day are now but rarely heard in Parliament. Greek quotations have almost entirely d -sappeare !, and sentences from the Latin authors ssem rapidly going out of fusliion. As regards quotations from British authors, they may now, it is said, be heard more frequently in tho Capitol at Washington than at Wesi cjustsr. hi of in it it Th-3 ia in is the hs to he the HINTS ON THE CARE OF THE EYES. There are, perhaps, more individuals who ascribe their weakneBS of sight to a nse of thoir eyes under an iusufiicient artificial illustration than to any other or.6 cause. In a grent many instances (his may tot be strictly true, but there 1 6011 l no ot!, that faulty artificial light is one of the most productive caus es of a certain class of injuries, to which the eye can tw exposed. The two sources of trouhle with the ordiuary artificial lights are first, that they are not pure white, and secondly, that they are un steady. The first defect is fouud in all artificial lights except the lime, electric rod magnesium lights ; the second es pecially in candles and gas. The yel lowness is, in a measure, counteracted by using, in the case of lamps and gas, chimneys of a violet or blue tint, and the flickering of the gas mav be obviated Inr'-'ely by employing an Argand burner. All things considered, a German student lamp furnishes tho most satisfactory liht. Tho next best is gas with an A gaud burner. The chimneys of both may, as above anygested, be advanta gpouely of a light blue tint. The position of the light in relation to the body is of great importance. If a hade is used on the lamp or burner (it diould, by preference, bo of ground or " milk " glass, never of colored glass), the light may stand directly iu front of the body and the work be allowed to lie in the light under the shade, which will protect the eyes from tho glare of the Maine. If no shade ia used the back should be turned to the source of light, which ought to fall over tho left shoul der. The same rule applies in the man agement of daylight. Ia this ca30 the light should come from bohind and slightly above, and fall directly on the work, whence it is reflected to the eye. It ehould never fall directly in the The light in the room during sleep is also not without its influence. As a rule, the room during sleeping hours should ba dark ; and, in particular, care should be taken to avoid sleeping oppoBite a window where on opening the eyes in . the morning a flood of strong light will fall oa them. Even the strongest eyes, are, after the reposo of the night, more or less sensitive to the impression ot in tense light The eyes mast have time to accustom themselves to the stimu lus. Attention should be called to the in jurious effects that sometimes follow reading on railroad ears. On account of the unsteadiness of the page, reading under these circumstances is exceeding ly trying to tho eyes, and should never be persisted in for any considerable length of time. During convalescence from severe ill ness the eyes are generally the last to regain their lost power. Scribner. FOX'S JOKE ON A DOG. The fox which Mr. Fairgrieves sow has ocenpies a yaid behind the store, to which Mr. Fuirgrieves's dog has free access. The dog and fox are roat friends. Th?y frolic together, piny jokes on each other, and live in the moat perfect harmony save at meal time. The discussion that- a choice bit will I ring forth is sometimes most interest ing. Mr. Fairgrieve gave tho fox a bone tho other day. The ilojj had 1-eeu taught by experience that it was no nse for him to try and capture it, so he re tired into the store to w atch the proceed ings, doubtless hoping that something would turn up in his favor. The fox ate what he wanted of the bone, and preferred to lay it away for future use. The dog picked up his ears, bnt yawned and betrayed do special interest. The fox dug a deep hole, placed tho juicy bono in the bottom, and, covering it over with earth, patted it down. lie then went into his kennel, brought out an old dry bona that he had kept away from the dog for several days, placed it in the hole over the sweet one, covered it up with apparent ccro, end retired to his kennel to watch operations. The dog saw the fox safely housed, and, as he had done before, stealthily approach ed the treasnro, resurrected the dry bone, and trotted off. Somerset lieport- LEGAL COURTESIES. They had a very interesting trial at tho United States Land Office, iu Lo Angeles tho other day, the case being Ketchum vs. Tha Stats of California, with Messrs. Gould & Elanchard as attorneys for plaintiff, and Judge Wid ney for defense. Mr. Gould called Ketchum and asked: "What bocamo of Lacheuais ?" "He was hanged by Judge Widney ond some other persons," said the wit ness. Judge Widney quickly arose and drev a pistol from his pocket, and holdinR the muzzle down, addressed Ketchum substantially as follows: "You say I murdered a man ! ' Ton lie, yon perjured villain ! I was in the County court-room trying a case at the time Lachenais was hanged, and knew nothing whatever about it. If your crowd are armed to assassinate or mur der me, draw yonr pistols and go ou." "'e are not armed," said Mr. Guild. "Then I will put away my weapon," said Judge Widney, "as I will not use it on an unarmed man." The case then proceeded without in terruption until the noon adjournment, when Judge Widney asked Mi. Gould if his party intended coming armed or un armed in tho afternoon, as ha would be governed by their actions. He said he oidy wanted a fair show, but did not in tend that any one should got the drop on him. Mr. Gould made no definite promise. -o- Bf.vtvtn Old Tdies. A tramp came lowu t ie dusty road aud sat down to rest on the steps of a house ia a quiet village street. Through the windows the voices of a man aud wife in violent altercation were heard, and the tramp listened iutenliy. Angry words, and oo oaiioually a sound of something thrown, came to his ears, and he could hardly sit. At lost, evidently, the wife hail ken A broom, and the blows fell fast and furious.

Near the oity of Moyouamba, Pern, has boen discovered a tree called the tamia-caspi or "rain tree," It absorbs the moisture of the atmosphere, which concentrates, and subsequently pours forth from its leaves and branclios in such quantities that in many cases the surrounding soil is convertod into a bog, and it seems to possess this power to a greater degree during the dry, hot weither, when water is most surce. culture of these trees in arid wastes recommendod to tha Peruvian Gov ei nnient A cloud cf sand which obscured Sim's rays lately fell in Iiomo.

A committee of Boston ladies, after extended observation and thorough in vestigation, report that as a rule men have better uoaes than women. This is a startling and important au nonncemeut, a;id the committee submit it is another evidence of the iuherent disposition of man to circumvent and disappoint womankind. Mankind is on trial, as it were, and it is proper to present a few observations bearing on iho case. Physiognomists have not hesitated to say iu a sly way, that if an observing person enters a street car. where are nested ton men ond as many women, picked up at random from the street, that he will find that eight of the ten men have the ' regulation good nose, while the women's noses will repre sent every style of nasal architecture, from the roguish retrousse to the straightest Greek. The men's noses, it is inm, will bo built on one general model exhibiting possibly some poverty in invention, but great uniformity as to shape, and approximating to a high staudnr 1 of general excellence. The women's noses will sail above the stand ard or fall below it ; will be good, bad and indifferent, with no approach to uni formity iu shapo, but wonderfully ex pressive in their marked and piquant individuality. Observations at the theaters and churches bring out the distinction in stronger light The masculine nose, averaging fairly, and fulling into line along the rows of seats with the stolid indifference of a soldier on dress parade, ready for inspoctiou aud heedless as to criticism. The feminine nose is varia ble, eccentric, erratic, aud no man in the world would ever think of btriking an average. It is a part ol tne woman, in element in her beauty or comeliness, and as such is beyond tho palo of criti- lsm. The masculine nose, is as a rule a good fair, respectable nose, but it is put ol faces without much judgmont or dis crimination. The regulation nose seems to have settled down on men's faoes about as the rain falls to the ground, and without much regard to tho oristo- cratic or plebeian character of the in dividual who is to figure through life as its owaer. There is a manifest im propriety in this, as is illustrated when you soe the same style of nose on the college professor and the street bum mer. The plain truth is that a man's nose means little or nothing. Ho has no pride in it, and is apparently half the time unconscious of its existence. A woman s nose, on the contrary, is full of meaning. A woman knows all e.iouv nor own nose, and all about tne n iS'i of every woman of her acquain tance. And one of tha unsolved puz zles, con. tint'y in her mind, is why na ture wasted so much good material on masculine noses, where it does no good and is net appreciated, and made femin ine noses a? they are. This qneF'.iou is a serious one, and in vites a heavy calibred and Darwinian sort, of speculation. Can the curious diJ'erence between noses bo explained on the development theory ? A boy's noj.e is simply a boy's nose. Then li-i is Lorn no more attention is paid to his nose thau to his big toe. He goes through life regarding his noes timply 03 a nose, associating it In memory v pouti'.-ly, with frequent spank ings. It grows into shape with the freedom of a fotcsi tree. There is no insthotio relatioLsiiip or bearing ; its progress is ia u i way emotional. It is never called upou to express any opin ion ; to indicate any shado of hostil ty or contempt. It is expe 'ted to do its level best as a noso, and leave the talk ing to tho mouth and the fighting to the hands and feet. In brief, the masculine uos- grows wild, without uttention and without interference, and nature has e clear field to carry out her purpose unin fluenced by those mysterious psychologi cal agencies that are so often brought to bear on human affairs. When a girl is born the case is differ ent. The first inquiry is : Ha she get a good nose, pretty eyes and a sweet mouth ? " Tho nose i3 na important element in her rna'.te-cp on her first ap pearance, and the success of l.r debut depends largely upon tl;e ar .jhitotnre ot that appeudage. Tho thought of the assembled few is concentrated on the shape of the noso in such a way that its influence must perviula tho mind of the newcomer. At all events the girl soon becomes conscious that she has a noso. She ia lectured, advised and scolded about it. She is commanded not to fall down in such a wr,y as to injure her nose. She is urged, for Heaven sake, over again. The independent little no chafes under this close watching, aud i always on the point ft doing somethin that it never does. It is subjected to : strict a mental discipline that it lose to some extent, its natural character a nose, and develops iu an engine of i pressivencss. It is strange that what pains iu expressiveness it should lose form and volume, or that there shot: be abnormal development in certain , rections. Presoi.t methods of cose education : eir'o must havo made women's nose a they are beautiful, sensitive, exprc sive, piquant or roguish. Thi.a is a vrr!l en iugh. Wo have reached a hi' and woman ought to be satis fied with what nose culture has done fm them, lint if they are not it is time t pause. Under the present system what will Iho noses cf women be five hundred years from now? May they not ceaso to be noses and becomo mere engines of expressiveness or sure indicators ofis position ? The thought is a fearful one, and we hesitate to contemplate tho pos--ubilites of tho feminine uose of that re mote period. The danger should be avoided by allowing the girl's nose t run wild for a century or two, receiving treatment akin to th:t measured out to the average nose of the aveiago boy. Inter- Oct an. A HOGSHEAD OF EATS. In tho kitchen of a Sacramento hotel, says the Heading Union, stood a swilf hogshead which was a center of attrao tion to swarms of rats. One night the kogshead was emptied of its contents, except enough for bait, and then the mnmmntli fran vil4 an nrrnnmut l,of a mauv rat:, cou! j enter ns desired, but there were r.o means of escape. A few minutes a.'tf r it was 6et three or four rata sprang into it, and not finding much food, became hoggish, and began fighting for the possession of what there was. Their squealing attracted more rats, and when the trap was examined before midnight, it presented a singular spectacle, l-.oing apparently about one fourth filled with the pests little rats and big ones, gray-headed fellows, and others that had scarcely sprouted their monst3clics au squirming, scratching, squealing and biting. Soon afterward they were killed, when the n limber dis posed of proved to be one hundred and six. it in MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS. Berlin is the la' est centre of Com munism in Germany.

As he came into court this morning and was ushered in the proper position, his face wore an eager expression. "1 want to got home to breakfast," he re marked in a cheerful voice. " If any thing'll make my old Wau mad, it's to see me late to my meals." " There's a little affair here to be at tended to," slowly observed the Court, as he scrutinized the general make-np of the prisoner. It was a bad make up. The tailor who had fitted the coat had missed his calculation ; tho vest was in rags, his hair was on a .drunk, and his boots wouldn't be allowed to stand in a re spectable yard. " A little affair ?

How Shedders, Busters and Soft Crabs are Raised. "What's them?" exclaimed Sydney an Urunt, the great crab farmer, the writer having pointed to certain little en closures in the Shrewsbury river. Mr. Van Brunt's tone betokened astonishment at the ignorance of tho questioner, or posfibly a shadowy suspicion that he was being chaff ed. . Assured that the re porter desired information, only that ard nothing moro, tho veteran crab cul tivator volunteered to explmn tho while system of crab raising. First he con ducted the reporter into a small building containing au immensa refrigerator.

Some, it is true, swayed their cla ve geutly to and fro or feobly workod their ilippers, put the majority were too Close ly packed to move nt all. From the ice-house to the low, marshy nnuks of the Shrewsbury the distance is bnt a few steps, au 1 soon the crab farm er and tho reporter were :.u a flat boat, 'eisurely cruising among the crab ponds and crab cars which are near the bank. "I havo four ponds, " said Mr. Van Brunt, " and they're ull pretty Lear full f crabs that is, they hold about 4,00f ipiece. That one to the left has hard hells, the next contains comers, the next busters, and tho last shedders. " " Oh !

A comer is , cran that shows cigns of wautiug to ilied his shell.- i uud my boys can al v.yt Ull Vm by their c.l.ir, by their f;.t-le.-s (a crab is always fattest at shedding .nue), and by a liUla mark on their big .law that only an old hand can tell. A lister is a comer that has just begun to poke himself out at the back of his shell. Is soon us ha gets out he's a bheddor. and in a short space of time he's a genu ine soft shell crab, ready to fry. Wo lo through our ponds four times a dny, and sort out the comers, busters, shedders, and soft shells, putting each Bort in thoir own place. If we loft the shedders and soft slitills w ith the comers, some of them would be eaten up, for crabs are mighty big ent-rs, and dou't care whether they feed off their relatives or strangers. Why, sometimes they go at a buster when he's got near half out of his shell. and chaw him up before he can crawl out. He can't help himself, you see, 'cause hi3 new clavs are half cut of the old ones, and he's aa limber and limp as a wet rag. " " What are those fish cars over there ? " "Well wo keep soft shells in them, and sometimes put busters in for safety. Now and thon a'crab has a mighty hard time getting out of his shell, but gener ally they don't seem to suffer much. Tlie hardest part is when they pull their eyes you notice how they bulge out in front through the hole that seem" too small for them. " Here Mr. Van Brunt took a buster from a fish mr and placed him in some seaweed on tho bottom of the boat. The reporter carefully watched the pro cess of shedding. The crab was already noarly half way out, the black shell being raised luliv sn inch, and a dark green oodj protruding. The creature s mo tions were almost imperceptible, except as to tne eyes. 1 hese moved slowly t and fro. Gradually the shell rosa high er and higher, and the body, with the nippers ot the Dew crab appeared. Then there was a mighty effort, the ey enme close togelher, aud iu a moment tho crab quitted its old house, bringing its big claws out last, and lay exhausted on its bed of seaweed. Almost instant'v began to swell, and in less thau twi minutes wa3 fully one-third 09 large .-is the shell from which it had just I acked out, " The only time a crab ever grows, " aid Mr. Van Brunt. " is just after shed ding. The male crab sheds evey moon, but the female, or oow crab, only once her lifetime. Mr. Van Brunt began crab farming at frquan mteen years ago, but one season tho crop failed, aud he emigrated to the Shrewsbury eleven years ago. General ly, he says, crabs meet with ready enough sale, but of late so many havo gone inti! the crab farming busiurss that the mark et is glutted. In war times crabs nsec bring from $2. 50 to So per dozen at bauds, but now most of the profit with the mnrketmen They pay the breeders 50 cents a dozen, and sell the crabs at from SI to $i a dozon. Only few weeks ago ho sent $300 worth to market and was forced to sell them for whatever he could get. The Shrewsbury river, near Long Branch, is the great crub farming region.

' sou An illustintion of the injury which, under the French laws, may be inflicted upon an innocent man by the loss of his certificate of birth, is afforded ia the case of Alfred Loiehot, who, at the aje of one and twenty, left Montbeliard, his Dative place, to serve his time in thearmy. At the expiration of his period of service he did not, his parents having in the meanwhile died, return to Montbeliard, but followed his trade a3 a watch-maker in various places. A short time back, having become engaged to be married, he determined go there and obtain the necessary papers, but iu applying at tho Mayor's office he was told that it would be useless giving him his certificate of birth, as in the archives was contained the certificate of his death at the Toulon galleys in 1871. Loiehot found upon further inquiry that all his former acquaintances believed thot he had been condemned to pena' servitude for the mnrder, and bad died at the galleys, and ho failed to under stand how the error could have arise!. until he remembered that while in garri- at Besaucon his money, watch and papers had boen stolen. The thiof had availed hims;lf of the papers to pass himself off a3 Alfred Loiehot, and hav ing committed some fresh offeuce, was sent to the galleys. Ho died while un dergoing his term of imprisonment, ond hence arose the mistako. Alfred Loicot has been compelled to apply to the civil tribunal at Toulon for a correction of the error, and for the re moval of his name from the death regis ter and judgment in which sentence was passed upon tha usurper of his name. 1'aU Mall Gazette.

The other evening a citizen of Woodward avenue went a blocu out of his way to put his head into a doctor's office and call out: "Man at the corner of Woodward avenue and Elizabeth street got a Lad fit!" Tho do,-tar put on his hat and hasten ed to tho corner indicated, hoping that he might not bo too luto to save human life. Thore was no crowd and no excite ment, ond as the M. D. leaned against tho lamp-post to catch his breath he saw a man sitting on the curb-stona bathing his feet with coll water. The boot which ho La 1 drawn off stood beside bim, and the man was saying: " Blast that shoemaker ; blast that boot ah yes, blast 'em ! " It was a bad fit. After two or three minutes the doctor saw that it was. What his thoughts ware no ous will ever kn w, but ai a boy cams near, rnnning a velocipede against him, he growled out: " About ton thousand men in this town ouht to ba takon out and shot 1 " A SINGULAR ESCAPE. In the winter of 1873, a very nuflev worthy merchant sailing-Tessel (a Su nless), the Tye Wat, .set out from the North of China to Siam, with a cargo of bean-cake, etc. The weather became excessively stormy, and at last the old Teasel actually went to pieces many miles from land in the Gulf of Pe-che-le. The crow consisted of eight Malays, who worked tho ship: th-i captain, an Engliuhmnn ; and in addition was one Chinese woniau. They had no boats on board, no time to muko n raft or means of doing so ; and as the vessel was rapid ly sinking, Vie wretched people looked roiin t in itesimir, when a hope of escape str'!"k cne nf them as hi." eye lighted n a lai g- woodeu water-tank which was ou dock. Tiii funk wai strongly made, about six foet 1 ing, five feet arrna, and five fe-t hiyl), with a large hole at the top iiito which a men could pqneeze, and a tight fitting cover. There was not moment to lo.-ie ; A hole was bored in luo bottom, to let out the water it con tained, then nuioklv plugged : and all tn squeezed themselves in hurriedly, put on the lid, and awaited their fate. In a quarter ot an hour alter they were thus paukiul, the ship sunk under them. Th-y first whirled round, and then float ed oil freely, and felt themselves rolliua and tossing alout frightfully on a stormy sea. Tiie weather was intensely cold bo much that the icicles had hung from the ringing of thf. sunken ship t!m lay before ; tUjd belli; so tightly packed, perhaps it was fort uiati; the wo.-.ther was so colrl. in their Imati to pave lite, they had brought only part of a ham whi.:h the captain hid snatched up, ami botil'j of brandy ; and thus these poor creatures were tossed about from day to day, hungry and thiity, jottl;d like po i.itoes sliakt-n hi a barrel; now and theu. ohou t'iiy d.ired, letting in a little air by raising the lid. The situation strong ly reminds one of Gulliver in his box whou the eale carried him out to sea from the 1 -ml of the Brobditinaas. On the fifth day th Malays said ther must kill and e:it the English capttiiu ; but the poor Chinese woman (to the credit of her ses) vehemently opposed them, and succe.ode I ia saving him for that day. On the sixth day the Malays said they mtil eat her ; but the captain in turn saved hi r for that day. It is difficult to imagine a more horrible sit uation than that of this poor English man, surTOnndod by eight starving men, det. raiined to eat him which they cer tainly would hava done had not an English vessel rescued them on tha sev enth day. It happened thas : The cap tain of that vessel sighted a large box ioesing on the waters, and at firit never thought of minding it, only supposing it part of some wreck, as the wenthei was so bad ; hut as he looked, to his ut ter surprise a hoad popped np through hole iu the contre, and then vanished, to bo followed by another figure, making frantic gesticulations. With much diffi culty this strange box was got alongside, hauled up, and its poor iDmates dratrged out to light, barely alive, and emaciated fearfully, finding the man-hole easier to pass out of than to get into ; which was reversing the fable of tho weasel who got into the barn. The captain of the rescuing vessel was a kind Englishman, and did nil in his power to restore his quests. They, were still in the Gulf of Te-che-l", end did net reach the port of Swatuw sooner than six days, where a doctor was called in to visit thoee libera ted " Jacks-in-a-box. " He said they were a singular proof of how much hu man beings can endure. All lived and recovered peifectly. Certainly they were all i;o;ntj people. The Malays went home. The English captain went to Singapore, and showed himself really grateful to the poor Chinese woman who had saved l.im from the jews of tha Malays. Chmalicra' Journal.
