The Household. A correspondent writes: It may not be generally known that a piece of rock, salt, dissolved in the mouth and swallowed at intervals through the day, is a reliable remedy for common diar rhoea and summer complaints, when taken seasonably. For dysentery, add finely pulverized charcoal and West India molasses meantime, wo should say, sending for the dootor and follow ing his advice when he comes. N. Y. Examiner. .,. A good supply of fall and winter cabbage comes in so well on a farm' and is so easily kept for use during the winter that there is no good reason why a large supply should not be raised on pvory farm. The requisite is good seed. There are so many varieties that It would be hard to tell whioh is best. Cabbage, to do well, require a nice, deep, loamy soil, easily worked, and should, to have the best results, be well manured. Cabbage will hoad on good rich land what we would call good corn land but not so well as if a good dressing of well rotted manure is applied. Management of Sheep In Summer. An important point is certainly gained w hen the stock-master has pro vided well drained and nntritiouH'grass ranges for his flocks. Hut there are other considerations to claim attention. The proper stocking of pastures is a matter to be looked after. The ex tremes of overstocking and understock ing must be avoided for best results. Overstocking, tho more freiiuent error. causes a scarcity of pasture and a ile- ncient supply ol nutriment. .Ihe sheep also take up sand and eartli into their stomachs with their food, and this causes disease. Uu the other hand, when the pasture is not close-cropped, the herb age become i hard and more or less in digestible, so that sheen do not thrive upon it. There is an old adage, fami liar to many shepherds, that "twentv- four hours' pasture is best for sheep and eight (lays grass for an ox." In a word, tho close bite of sheep should be furnished with close herbage, the ten- tier growth of thick, short pasturage. Pastures not closely cropped ought to be either mowed or pastured down by arue oetore tne slieep arc turned on it. It pays, as a rule, to divide the flocks, pasturing tliu younger and less vigor ous animals togetlier; in a word, sort ing lambs nd yearlings from mother and older ewes, and giving the former ine nest pa -mirage. When the range is limited or the' past ure is not ample, additional food should.

An over supply in result in an equal uisau vantage, es pecially when there is overfeed one day, and little or nothing next day. For venness in the fleece, sheep must be fed regularly that is to say, they must from pasture, range or feeding trough obtain a due amount of nourishment daily. There is no question but that irregular feeding not only atlects the health and nesh ot the animal hut diminishes the growth and weight of fleece and weak ens its fibre. 1 When pasture is insufficient, an eco nominal plan is to supplement it by ttowed green crops to be fed on the in " ... .--'- i.

Of -course, when nature pro vides living tiprings or clear, flowing tit roams, tliee are the best source of mipply. Stagnant water is decidedly . objectionable; Most shepherds give the preference to hard water over soft water, when either can be had, on thu eiro that the former contains mint-mi ' matter. Waters . containing a gowdly percentile of lime, oda. mag nesia, iron, suljikur, etc., are a positive tiouroe of nourishment to sheep. A do lieienoy in mineral matter may bo ob viated by giving tlie sheep an occasional mixture of common salt, sulphur, phos phateof lime, bono (lust, vtu.

North America, 1t is aptly remarked,' presents a magnificent field for tho stndytif VHg ami barbario philoso phies from tiiis fresh standpoint. For merly attention was paid almost ex clusively to the more advanced peoples Aryans, Semites, llamites, Chinese. Now it is felt that tho complex mytho lorie, religious, linguistic systems of theso peoples are the outcome of ear lier and simpler phases of thought, consequently that the study of barbar ous and savage communities can no longer be neglected. Hut in North America alone we havo our seventy five ethnical groups speaking seventy live slock languages and more than .100 well-marked dialects, each linguistic stock with a philosophy of its own, or rather as many philosophic- systems as it has distinct languages nmt dialects. To account for this astounding diver sity of speech Major Powell holds with one or two distinguished European philologists that the fundamental lan guages must, have been evolved in in dependent centers, than iu fact "man kind was widely scattered over the earth anterior to the development of articula'e speech, and that the langu ages of which we are cognizant sprung from innumerable centers as each little tribe developed its own language." Ho fails to see that this view, in itself t'l the last degree improbable, is wholly unnecessary and even inadequate to ex plain the a ;tual conditions. It is un necessary because the present diversity of speech may be sufficiently accounted for by its vast antiquity and extremely evanescent character. Time, acting in combination with the phonetic growth and decay inherent in all speech, must inevitably effect an indefinite amount of spocilic change, even supposing that all languages started from a single center. No evolutionist can deny this, for he admits that time, combined with a tendency to modification iu altered environments, has brought about an in definite amount of spocilic and generic change in the biological world. Hut miimals and vegetables are certainly more persistent, rrrtcri.i p trilm.i, than linguistic types. Ergo. The theory is moreover inadequate to explain tho actual conditions in America alone. Hero wo have doubtless a vast number of specifically distinct languages; but the mechanism of all is very much alike; all aro east, as it were, in tho fame mould; all belong to tho postsyn thetic or at least to the agglutinating order. Hut if speech had in America been evolved in many different centers. It may be asked how this striking uni formity is to be explained. Why have wo not here, as elsewhere, representa tives of the isolating and inflecting, as well as of tho polvs'ynthetie order of spuech? Does not their common struct ure. point at a common center of dis persion, while their specilic diversity within this common groove is amply explained by time and evanescence ? Lundon, Xa'ure. Reptiles in Disguise. Everybody is fond of birds, but it is possible that some peoplo might like them less if they believed them to be only reptiles in disguise. Now, Sir John Lubbock, addressing .tho Hritish Association in 181, said: "It seems to be generally admitted that birds have come down to us through tho Dinosau rians (Wonder-lizards); and, as Huxley has shown, the profound break once supposed to exist between birds and reptiles has been bridged over by the discovery of reptilian birds and bird like reptiles so that, in fact, birds are modified reptiles." Popular likes and dislikes are no disproof of relationship. Hirds with teeth and reptiles with feathers have been cited in evidence, although, indeed, they are very like "Cuckoo, cuckoo, welcome bird, sel dom seen, but often heard" of. Birila and reptiles are alike reproduced from eggs; their blood corpuscles are equally oval, ami not round, as in mammal ani mals. - Hoth, apparently, swallow their food without lasting it. Possibly the stomach may be, with them, the seat of taste, as it often is with us when we have taken physio or eaten stnle fish or too much sage and onion stutling with duck. Hoth are musical. Serpents are fond of melody, though they cannot make it. Hatraehiaus as well as bipeds have theirgraiid united choral societies. American bullfrog concerts are cele brated as well as numerously attended. The song of thrushes and tho wailing of nightingales may, therefore, be only developments of the green European tree-frog's resonant croak, effected, as with birds, by inflated expansions of the throat,,, very curious to witness.

An Aqueous Explosion. : On Tuesday last an eight-foot Pelton water-wheel was started at the Idaho mine to drive the pumps. The wheel was found to work admirably, and ev ery thing went along smoothly until lOiliO o'clock .Saturday night, when suddenly the wheel burst into fragments thu pieces flying in different directions, but, fortunately doing no other damage than tearing away wood-work and making holes through the sides and roof of the' hoisting-works. Ono piece pursued ii very erratic course, going . outside the building and returning, fell within eighteen inches of one of the workmen u ho stood near the top of the shaft. The engineer iu charge had been to the wheel a few minutes before tho accident to oil its journals, and had not much more than returned to his station when the fearfully sweeping crash came. The wheel was making 2I0 revolutions per minute, being driven by sixty inches of water under 51(1 (net pressure, and of course when the break came the pieces flew a if shot out of a cannon, and as the wheel was a com plete wreck it seemed almost miraeu- ious Unit there wasjio loss of life and no greater damage to property, It was at nrnt supM)seu (hat tliere was some flaw ill the iron, but Siupt. Coleman's theory is. iiiui iue run in uic v neel (three quarters of an inch in fiickncss) was too light for the pressure and velocity under which it was running.

We buckled on our cartridge belts, took up our guns, and started off. I noticed, at tho time, that the Doctor placed a small case in his In-east pocket. Hcing somewhat curious to know w hat the case continued, I inquired of him what it was. He handed it to me and on the out-sidn I read: nit. m.ANK'a Dorni.r. Action t.irK 1'iitHKnvisn Pirxs. t-iililicr Mt, Ml grains. We soon oaugl sight of tho largest grizzly it has been my fortune to see. His left side was tons. I saw the Doctor turn pale with excitement. Whispering to him to stiffen his left ear, I rested my rifle on that prominent part of his per son, and, taking dead aim for tho bear's breast, fired. At the report of tho gun, the Doctor, stunned by tho explosion, 1 suppose, fell as though he had been shot. Not so with the bear, however, for starting up with a snort, he looked around. 1 fired again, but shot wild, nnd then saw the bear start for us, with hair on end and growling fearfully. Shall I confess it that fear took posses sion of me, even so that I dropped my gun and ran? Yes. I fled ingloriously nnd left my poor helpless comrade to ids fate. Some lifty yards below where I had fired there was a scrubby oak tree, some twelve feet high, and for this tree I ran as fast as my legs would carry me, and swung myself into its branches none too soon. Tiie bear clutched at my feet as I drew up. I climbed to the "top, and looked tremblingly down. The bear seized the tree in his grasp nnd endeavored to tear it up by the roots; but it wns rooted in the rocks, and was too much for even his giant strength. I breathed more freely. I knew ho could not climb the tree. On looking at him closely I could see. the hole iu his left side 'where the bullet hail en tered, and on the other side whine it had passed out. It must havwetorn his lienrt to pieces. The blood was flowing from the wound, and the bloody froth was on his lips. Surely he must soon die, I thought. But he showed no sign of failing vitality, and I soon eiiino to believe that a bear may live without a heart. I saw plainly now that I should haye shot him through the head or else through the spine. Hut it was too late to rectify the mistake; my gun was on the ground. The bear would not leave the tree, but kept looking up at me. After awhile he took a large boulder in his paws, and laid it at the root of the tree, and then another and another. At first I was puzzled to know what it meant, but soon tho terrible truth dawned on my mind that he was heaping them there that he might stand on them and reach me. The thought was enough to make me start, and for a moment I thought of leaping over him to the ground and taking my chances in run ning.. Hut I knew he would overtake nie. Then I thought of the Doctor, and turned my eyes toward the place whero he had "fallen. He was not there. I shouted his name, and saw him thrust his head out from crevice in tho rocks close by where 1 had left him. How lie managed to squeeze his body into so small nspaco is a mystery to mo. "Get your gun and shoot the bear," I screamed to him. "Are you going to stand still and see this brute eat ran?" He did not answer, but crept out cautiously to whero his rifle lay, and ran quickly back to his retreat. I saw him aim, and then saw the flash of the fun and one of my boot-heels flew oil', implored him to aim with more care next time, and to shoot at tho bear, not at me. 1 waited with much trepidation his next shot, and well I might, for the bullet sung a dirge by my ear, b ming it as it passed. Then I asked luni to desist, for fear that he might commit murder and that I would bo the victim. Slowly but surely the bear was piling up the rocks at tho base of the tree, and must soon reach mo. For a while hope deserted me and I sat in a kind of stupor, from which I was aroused by a thought that flashed across my mind. Acting upon it I shouted to the Doctor. "Draw tho bullet from a cartridge, quickly, and replace with one of your pills! Load your gun with it." "AH right," ciimo the response. . "Now run out," I sai l, "and attract the attention of the bear. ' Iu auother moment he came out yell ing nnd capering about. This was inoro than tho bear could resist, and he rushed for thu Doctor, who lied to his retreat, followed by tho bear. " When he opens his mouth tire -straight down his throat," I yelled. I heard a shot, saw the bear stagger back, then rear up and place his paws on his abdomen, howling all tho while ns if in pain. Then he started to flee, but fell into convulsions horrible to be hold, tearing up the earth in his death struggle. Gradually his movements t eased. His limbs stiffened. Ho was dead. Then the Doctor emerged from his crevice in the rocks and rushed up to tho bear's carcass and kicked it nnd leaped upon it, yelling all the while like a devil. I descended from my perch and going up to the Doctor embraced him and thanked him from the bottom of my heart. I told him that lie was the dead est shot with a pill Iliad ever seen. -Forest ami Stream. Colorado and Wisconsin Air Compared. A person feels, after breathing Colora do air, 'us though a couple of nioiithfiilsof Lake Michigan breeze would make him intoxicated with joy, and his weak body would feel like calling somebody a liar, just for exercise. The air hero is good for those with weak lungs, be cause it does not go into tho lungs aitd search around for something 'to blow up, the way eastern air docs. The Colorado air goes into the lungs in a mild, apologetic sort of a way, as if it wanted to ask the pardon of a tuberiele, or a hemorrhage scar, for coming in, and it sort of loafs around in the lungs, blushing and bashful, and backs out noiselessly, and hopes it has not incon venienced the breather, and goes otl down an alley as though ashamed of having intruded. . The Wisconsin air goes into one's lungs as through it was a policeman going into a saloon to break up a row, and seems to say to the lungs; "What is going on here." It hustles around, attends to business, braces up the man who owns thu lungs, and goes out like a cow crowding through a garden gate, and leaves tho gate open. Everything is laid to the air here.

I heard of a Mexican living near Bocorro, fJ, M., whose thrift bus atnasHed him a fortune, all m bu lion, which he is said to keep under the floor of his hrnse. He demands invariably thirty daya time in which to pay for purcharfs, however small, and, promptly ou the day that payment becomes due, ho turns up with bullion to the amount of the bill exactly weighed out. Hut even what he has did not come from trade, but from a silver mine that he has worked for years with only occasional help.

A Boston paper tells this story of a gentleman who placed his wife ana chil dren upon an outgoing steamer and re mained upon the wharf to catch a final glimpse of his dear ones. He leaned against a post to which one of the steamer'sjropes had been mado fast. As the boat moved out the rope was loosen ed, and a crack in the post suddenly oloBed with a vice-like grip upon one of the gentleman's hands, badly crushing it, and causing agonizing paiu. With rare nerve and thonglitfulness for his wife, who was watching him, he made no outcry, but composedly waived bis hand kerchief with the other hand until the boat moved slowly out of sight Not till then did he make known his situa tion to the bystanders. With much dif ficulty the baud was freed, aud was found to be so severely injured that amputation was necessary. Some of the laws which Bismarck as got engrafted on the German statute books are ridiculous.

Hamilton before the Now York Society fur the Promotion of Science contains so much that Is timely and important tha1; it can be read with both interest tnd roll : There is pr jubly no subject of modern times thrt ' uas caused and is causing greater utte n ion than the origin of torna does. ta itists havo studied it for the benefit of humanity; men have inv sti gated if lor the weliare of their f. m .ies. It has been a vexed subject long o isid ered, and thcough all this investigate .) the cyclone has swept across the lund c; rrying destruction to scientists us well as to lha innneent dwellers in its track. One thing, however, is eel tain: tho cause of tho cy clone must bo sought fur awav from the whirling body of wind itself. Its results are powerful ; its cause must also be pow erful. Let us therefore consider a few farts. First, the appearance of a cyclone is invariably preceded by dark spots upon the face of the sun. These spots, indicating a disturbed condition of the solur regions, necessarily affect the atmosphere of our earth. An unusual generation of heat in one part of the atmosphere is certain to cause u partial vuciium iu another portion. Air must rush in to till this vacuum. Hence the disturbances hence the cvelone. This theory finds additional confirmation in the fact that tornadoes come during the day and not at night. Thedark spots upon the surface of the sun, whutover they may be, seem to cause great coin mot ion in the atmosphere of the world, and It is almost certain that tho extremely wet weather of the present season can be accounted for on precisely this basis. Is it reasonable to suppose that the marvelous effect of the sun on vegetation and life in general shall be loss than upon the atmosphere itself through which its rays come? The causa is remote, but the cfluct is here. After (leseril)in somo of the terrible ef fects of tho cyclone, the speaker went ou to say : This rule finds its application in nearly every department of life.

All tin so eilects have a deilnite cuusu; and, ufier years of deep experience upon this subject, 1 do not hesitute to say that this cuusu is to Iw fouud in some derangemeut of the kidneys or liver far away from that portion of the body in which thegt ef fects appear. p,ut oiie may say, 1 have no pain whatever in my kidneys or liver. Very true. Neither have we any evidence that there is a toruadn on tho surface of the sun; but it is none thelesa certain that the tornado is here, and it in Hone the lesi certain that these great organs of the body are the cause of tho trouble although tum e nay be no jiain iu their vicinity. t knf w whereof I speak, for lbae psosil tliromh this very etperience myself. Nearly km years ago, I wns the picture of )ionlth, weighing more than '.,0 1 pounds, end as strong and healthy as any man I ever knew. When I felt the svinptoms I have above deserilied, they caused ine en lioyance, not only bv reoson of their ag gravating nature, tint because I bnd never felt any pain liefore. Other doctors told me I was troubled with malaria, and I treated myself accordingly. I did not be lieve, however, that malaria could show such nggravuted symptoms. It never oc curred to me that analysis would help live the trouble, as I did not presume my difficulty wns located in that portion of tho body, ltut I continued to prow worse. I bad a faint sensation at the pit of my stomach nearly every day. 1 felt a great desire to eat, and yet I loathed food. 1 was constantly tired and still I could not sleep. My brain was unusually nctive, but I could not think connectedly. My existence was a living misery. 1 continued in this eon ditlon lor nearly a year; never free from pain, never for a moment happy. ' Such an existence is far worse than deuth, forwhich 1 ronfess I earnest lv longed. j It was while suflei ing thus that a friend advised me to make a final attempt, to re cover my heul'h. I sneered inwardly at 1 bis suggestion, tint I was too week to make i any resistance. He furnish' d me with a remedy, simple yet pul:itabi and w ithin I two days I observed a slii.-ht el nnge tor the better. This awakened inv courage. I ! felt that I would not I'ie at that time. I I continued the use of the remedy, taking it in accordance with direct ions, uni il I b.--rame rot only res'ored to my former hcalt"i nnd si ren :th, tut of greater vigor than 1 have before known. Tills con- dition has conlipiied up to Hie present time, and 1 believe 1 should have died as miserably us thousands of other men have died ami' nre dying every d iv had it not been for Ihe simple yet wond-Ttul power of Warner's Sato Cure, the remedy 1 em- ploved. The lecturer then described bis means of restoration more in detail, und concluded tis follows: jMv complete recovery has caused nie to Investigate the subject inoro carefully, and I believe 1 have discovered thek- v to most ill-health of our modern civilization. I am lully confident that tolir-filhsof fhedis-( eases which adlict hriuanity might bo avoided wei c the ki Ineys und liver kept in perfect condition. Were it possible to con- trol t'ne ac ion of the sun, cyclones could undoubtedly be averted. That, however, is one of tho things thai can not tie. But I rejoice to say thut it is possible to control the kidneys and liver; to render their ae- tion wholly normal and their effect upon the system that of purifiers rather than poisoners. 1 hat this end has heen accom plished largely by means of the remedy I nave named I do not bnve a doubt, and I feel it my duty to make this open declara tion for the enlightenment of the profes sion and for the benetitof suffering human ity in ull parts of the world.
