The crop report of the Agricultural Department, relative to eUon, shows the rains to have been ex cessive, but there is nothing at present to render a fair crop impossible.

PROTECTION. Secretary Folger Issues Orders to all Customs Officers Instructing them in Reference so Baggage Passing through Infected Districts. Washisgton, July The Treasury De partment is taking rigid measures to pro tect this country from cholera Infection. JJot only are the quarantine officers careful, but Secretary Folger has issued an order to all customs officers instructing them to require evidence that none of the baggage of hnmtgrants or returninf travelers has been shipped from or passed through the infected districts since the 20th of Jnn last. It is believed bv medical authorities here that cholera will not come here this year, at any rate, and perhaps, not In an pidemlc form at any time. The U. S, onsuls have been instructed by the State Department to inspect closely the shipment of goods from the infected districts. Cholera is the hardest disease to quarantine against, as the germs come tn the mctt unsuspected forms, and it may appear at any time. To prevent the pidemic, medical mtn say the most es sential thing Is to keep the cities clean, that it can get no foothold. The greatest danger lies in the importa tion of the germs of cholera, but in es tablishing and maintaining such unsanitary conditions as will make it difficult to stamp it out. It was brought from Norway in 18.3 bv some emigrants, and made its first sppearancein Minnesota, which was their destination- The germs came in their baggage, and every person that was present when that baggage was opened died. If the baggage hud been ojened at New York as thev passed through that city, there might have een a tern hie epidemic, hut in the countrv, where there was plenty of fresh air and natural conditions of cleanliness, it was not so bad. Tue pres ent epidemic if believed to be the same that swept over Fypt lnt summer and carried off so many people there. It has crept along the Mediterranean until it found the condition favnrahle in I uulon, and broke out so fiercely there. Toulon rs acity of perhaps one hundred thousand men, many of whom are sailors, and from their habit are naturally subject to diseases of an infectious nature. Marseilles is a city similar to Toulon, only yerv much larger, and is in a very bad sanitary con dition, just prepared lor sucn a plague, Cholera, according to high medical author ity, never spreads faster than men travel. and has never appeared at places where travelers do not to, In luter years it has spread more rapidly than formerly, because means of travel are more rapid. It used to require about six years for an epidemtc to reach America from India. The Indian epidemic of 1S2G got here in 18.T2; that of 1M1 did not reach New York until 1848; that of 1861 reached New Orleans in 18oT, and the plague of 18i& reached Minnesota in 18711. The cholera that was so bad in New York In 1818 w as brought by immigrants. Triple Drowning and Wonderful Escape. Detroit, July 8.

Tne other girl clung to the boat all night and until yesterday after noon, when she was finally rescued, hav ing dnl ted seven miles down the river and lodged in the rushes on the Canadian side, where her cries at last attracted the attention of a farmer at work in a field ad- ining. The names of the voung men are unknown. The drowned girl was named Millie Be;ich. The name of the girl whose pluck and endurance saved her life is Mary Maney. Cholera in Germany. Bkkltn, July 9. The prediction of Pro fessor Koch, the cholera expert, that the French scourge would reach Germany and ultimately spread throughout Europe, is partially verified this morning by an ofli cial announcement that one death from the dread disease occurred yesterday at Con stance, in the Duchy of Baden, and two other cases have been reported. Trie an nouncement has cretted considerable alarm throughout Germany, and extra san itary pi recau t ions and strict quarantine rules are being enforced in order to pre vent the introduction of the epidemic tc other parts of the empire.

A Mother, Two Babes and Servant Burned to Death. Burned to Death. Several Other Persons Injured-Heroic Burned to Death. Several Other Persons Injured-Heroic but Unavailing Effort of a Stranger to Save the Mother—Ten Buildings Burned. BRAPFonn, Fa., July 11 A fire started at an early hour this morning in the bakery of Mrs. Charles Keibley, and in a few min utes the building was a mass of names Farly arrivals found a man named Thomas Clark standing upon a ladder which rested against a window of the Keibley dwelling. He was begging for some one to come to his aid, and cried, "For God's sake throw iom water up here; I've got a woman by th arm." The icene wm a thrilling one. The fire was roaring upward and hissing out through the windows, presenting a Serfect bell of flame, and seemingly de ant of ttie mad efforts of the heroic Clark to save human life. At this moment two women jumped out of a rear story window, and for a moment the crowd of spectators were paralysed, many turning their heads away from" the appalling sight in an agony of fear and trembling. Just then the noble Clark succeeded in bring ing to the window-sill the form of a woman blackened, bruised and bleeding. It was found to be the unfortunate Mrs. Reibley, who, with all the instincts of maternity, held back and struggled with her noble rescuer, as if she was determined to die with her babes, who at that time were burned to a crisp. At last Clark succeeded in getting Mrs. Keibley to the top of the ladder, and ready hands were there to help him in his daring and self-sacrificing deed of heroism. The poor woman was taken across the street, and laid upon the side walk, breathing her last. Mrs. Keibley'a two children, ege two and six yea., re spectively, and a Sweedish servant girl, perished in the flames. The dead are Mrs. Keibley, Mary and Lizzie Keibley and Helen Podoski. John Holden, a barber, who roomed in the house, was so terribly burned that he died to-night, lena Gar witz, Mary Touhey and H. Garwick are badly burned. Miss Touhey leaped from a second-story window breaking four ribs in the fall. Her injuries are probably fatal. Mrs. Garwitz also jumped, and re ceived bad injuries. Her recovery is doubtful. Thus. Clark, who rescued Mrs. Keibley, is from Denver, Col. He was stopping at Keibley's aud heard the first alarm. He sprang out of the rear entrance with his coat and vest in his hand. He knew of the presence of the other lodgers in the building, and at set about his work of rescue. He p.ced ttie ladder against the window, and, notwithstanding the seething names which almost surrounded him, he caught hold of Mrs. Keibley's arm, and, trying to pull her out, the cuticle of the arm sn ipped off like a stocking, ami he was obliged to lean on the window to secure a fresh hold. All the time be was being drenched with water, and bethinks if the poor woman had not pulled back lie could have saved her life. The fbinies spread on both sides, consuming ten buildings and an oil well. MEXICAN VETERANS. A Convention of Those Who Fought on Either Wide to be Held. St. Lot is, Mo., July 11.

And when Rhe .says it, she says a great deal more of the same kind of talk about tone of character and self-respect, and always being frank and never de ceitful, and things out of the Bible, too, and looks so solemn all the time, it makes you think you'd better be care ful. She snys a fault's a fault, no mat ter if it don't seem quite so big as some other boy's faults. I'm always forgetting, though. It's such jolly fun to hide behind the corner of a fence and jump out and make a girl holler. I was sorry, though, ono day, when Susy Bangs jumped so hard she dropped a pail of berries, and they fell in the mini and were all spoiled. Mamma made me pay for them out of my own money, and said she hoped it would be a lesson to me. Hut I guess it wasn't, for the next day I put a little frog in Holly Pratt's desk, and when she felt, she hollered and knocked over her ink. 1 was sorry again when the ink went oil over her reader and then ran down on her dress. I'd have given her my reader, only I'd given that to Pete Cramp when I said "Boh!" to him when he was cross ing the stepping stones in the creek, imd he went splash into the water, and his reader was all wet, and him, too. And when the frog jumped out of Polly Pratt's desk, and jumped on to Kitty Price, and she tumbled over and 'bumped her head, I had to stay after ischool: and the teacher asked tne didn't I think such conduct very improper and inhuman: and I said yes. And he said I'd surely get punished for it some day, ft I didn't stop playing tricks. I have. 1 mean I've g't punished. I don't know yet whether I've stopped or not, hut I guess .so. We were all going to the fair, lo have the biggest kind ot a tune, there was ii big carriage coming, and there'd be peanuts and lemonade and horses run tiing and pop-corn and a balloon ascen sion and candy and tilings, and a tight rone and fellows that chaw up lire. and it don't hurt 'cm a bit, and every thing. Cousin Laura she came down all dressed up to go, and she looked nice and line, I tell you! all white and little short, stiff things that stood out all over her, and great big sunflowers or things in her hat. She sat down on a piazza-chair close by the balustrade, and I thought what fun it would be to pin her sash to it so she couldn't get up. I did, and she never knew it. John had lixed tho hose John's tin follow that waters the flowers and digs and scolds when vou pick things lean ing up against some Ilower-pots so it would sprinkle a shower on some llowei's. lie was digging something, .md his back was turned to it so he uildn't see, and I thought what fun twould be to turn the shower on him and then run round the corner of the house and watch to sie him jump, So I gave the nozzle a shove and then run But it didn't go on John. It went, on Cousin I. aura, and she jumped; but she couldn t lump far. for her sash was pinned tight behind her, aud she couldn't get away. And John is deaf and didn t hear her, and before he saw her you ought to see the starched things on her dress go down. She looked like a white peony before, but by the time John got hold of the nozzle she looked like a white string. At first 1 was going to run away and not tell 'twas me, but I thought that would be too mean; so I walked up Cousin Laura, and says I: "Cousin Laura, I did it, and I'm awful sorry Mamma looked at me sorry enough she went tip-stairs to help Cousin dress again. N e had to wait a great while, but at last we were all ready to go, But Hist as I was getting into the carnage papa looked at me , and say he: "Archibald, you may go to your room and slay there till bed-time.

Youth's Companion. A Brave Little Girl. of Is I., at by Just between tho towns of lloboken and Weehawken, in New New Jersey, lies the little hamlet of Union Hill, old-fashioned village, peopled mostly by (iermaiis, and in this village stood fur many years a great traino building, used principally as a hotel, and know n to all the towns-people the name of "The Uld Swan." In years gone by this place quite a famous resort, but it gradually ran down until it became at length cheap boarding house. Among the many inmates of building were Julie Hrohmer. a little eight-year-old girl, fier mother til: ee younger children. The smallest, a little girl baby of two', was little Julie's especial charge, and her mother leave the little baby with Julie, that no harm would come to her so long as her faithful little sister wa? ne;ir. Julio attended the public school regularly as her duties at home would allow, and, unlike most little girls her age, when she came home she not care to run out in the street play at "tag" or "hide-and-s.-ek," instead staid at home and relieved mother of the care of her younger brothers and sifters, and acted the of a small housewife. The other evening, about half nine, little Julie sal in a room on one the lower floors patiently waiting her mother to come in that she might go to bed. She had just put her baby si-ter to sleep in the back room, and as Julie sat waiting so quietly, half-closed ens mid lreiiuont ' told only too 'l Uit tlio 'duslmart wn. on iiia roiiK SmliliMilv. a- slm thi'i-n, soin brljctit sparks foil from thn coiling Hint gmouMrrwl on th'1 Hoor.

In nnother moment tho flames appeared in the very room in which little Julia sat. She beard the cries of tiro and the people rushing madly into tho street. Hut thero was no one to to tell her what to do, or even to think of her, in that moment of ex citement.

Hut that was not. what brave little Julia thought of as she saw the sparks falling alnr.it her, and the red glare of the fast approach ing flames.

And in this position, after hunt ing all over, and almost concluding that Julio ha I perished in the flames, her mamma and the neighbors found her. Brave little girl'. Though only eight ears old, when danger threatened she did not have to be told what was right for her to do, nor did she for a moment lose her presence of mind, but bravely rescued her baby sister. bo, little girl readers, think what brave little girl Julie Hrohmer was. and try to learn from her brave act a lesson of courage and self-control. Harper's What Children Can Do. I Thev can feed the homeless and hun gry cats and dogs and give them water to drink : they can, at least, try to pro- t them from the assaults of cruel boys ; they can always speak a word in behalf of those creatures which cannot speak for themselves; they can say: 'Tlease be kind to that poor (log: please don't worry that homeless cat; please don't throw stones at the birds or rob their nests;" these creatures have a right to live aud bo happy. Children can fasten the blankets on the horses when they have blown oil. They can give them a drink on a hot summer day and sponge oil' their faces when they are tired and dusty; they can 1 it t up the heavy collar iron: tne nre.i neck and rub the perspiration oil; they in move the troublesome blinders otl from their eyelids where thev are often found pressing down close; they can ask drivers and coachmen to please loosen the check-rein and let their horses stretch out their necks and rest. themselves. They can often speak to their playmates of the use which the larger animals are to man, as tho horse and cow, and the pleasure which people derive from the smaller ones, as the cat. dog and bird. These little creatures are company for us and ornaments to our homes when we feed them properly and provide them with comfortable places to sleep. And if, as sometimes lappens, tney see an animal, insect or reptile that must be killed, they can plead to have them all killed quickly so that their sutlermg may be short. Animals know when they are kindly spoken to; speak kindly to them when tiiey aro sick or disabled, and lay a gen tle hand upon them. Thoy are con scious of a kind word or caress, though they can not speak and tell you so. How quickly they start and tremble at harsh tones; why should they not be fully as sensible of kind ones? lttiiwit Humane Journal. Graham Flour. to as to an has by was a the and as of i Tho high proportion of proteine mat ter found by chemical analysis to exist in wheat bran, and the quantity sup posed to be thus removed from the (lour in the process of manufacture, has led; many intelligent and well-intentioned! people, and induced many physicians of high standing, to advocate the use of whole meal that is flour made frnni the whole grain and unbolted in bread making, instead of the white bolted Hour ordinarily made employed. It is believed that with the removal of the, bran and other matters in the process of grinding and bolting, causing a sep aration of from thirty to sometimes as high as seventy percent, of tho weight of the grain used, a large proportion of the most nutritious part of the cereal is rejected, while if the whole product is saved in the Hour the value of tho latter for human consumption will be corre spondingly increased. But that this belief is wholly erroneous has been lately proven by Dr. Max Hubiier, who has made some careful digestion exper iments to determine the amount of ma terial. used up in the animal economy, when each kind of flour is used in the bread consumed, respectively. He ex amined the residues from ordinary Hours and those from the flour or wheat meal of the Bread-Reform League, and as a result of his examinations ' lrj ar rives at the conclusion that the larger the proportion of bran left in the Hour the greater will be the amount of nutritious matter uuassiniilated and excreted. While he considers it quite possible that the digestibility of tho bran might be increased by finer grinding, he doubts tho advisability of such a pro cedure, or its economy, from the fact that it may be more profitably fed to the lower animals, which digest 't so much more readily. The higher palat aoility of bread from the best bolted oi purified flour renders it at all time more desirable, and the facts determined by l)i.
