Tcffkb, Austria, May 3,1874. i W he'll I commenced f(J wriie to vou about what we have seen 1 know not what to say. lor we have seen enough since we i have left Halle to fill ' a small volume. ' In the last let ter I spoke some of Prussia. 1 will now write about Ausirin. The first Austriau couutry or Province that we came into was Boliemin, the land of John Hubs. We approached It Irom Saxon Switzerland, a very hilly, jet picturebque partol Saxony. As we . entered it we wen in troduced to huts covered witii thatched roofs. ' This country is very cold I suppoe in the Win ter, hence the walls oi their lew one-story bouses are very thick, (I am how describing villages of from 500 to 2,000 in habitants.) and hate small win. do ws, perhap I wo feet square and double, that is, two sets of sash one-foot apart, the inner irorri the outer. The'houaes are generally about twelve feel wide and twenty feet long, and whitewashed, but the lower part oi the wall about three feel high with a blue color, the rest white, save when they want to be . fancy, then the whole wall iscovered with fig ures like the leaf ol a grape Must of ihene houses are cover. ed wiih r.ve straw in the form ol a l hatched roof, and the loft is used as a hay mow to store away fodder for the cattle, . Alier we left iVragire -we thought we would like to stop over night in some country vii- l as city. We saw from . our guide that tliere were some things in the vicinity ol' Suite that were ol interest, and so we concluded to buy a ticket to that staliou. When we got to to tlie siaiiwj we found that th'e town was three quarters of a mile Irom ibere and when e walked out to the town we found that most ot the houses were covered with straw, yot the appearance of the white Washed 'walls 'made W hope that we could fi id a place to stay over night. We made in quiry and ' learned that there were three ( OastAau'ses) hotels In the place, but were directed to one as being decidedly' the best in the, place. , We went there arid'found ihat they bad one exia bed with-which (o accoiumodate their guests, and, that a bed for only one, as alj the beds are in , Gerraatnv I have seen no other since here. This bed was in the pantry or a room that they kept dishes and edibles in- and only partly partitioned tfifirci'tu the dining room and bar-roomi- The lady ol the bourse thought we could sleep in' that bed, Lot Mra.F.

' In the mornitrg early I took a ramble to a neigh boring town, about a mile and a half off. 1 will here copy a part of my diary: "1 starfed out and, sawjo many respects what I had seen in The afnremeatfmi ed town (Saltr.) Men and wo men were otf their way tngeth er to work.' The women wore short dresses that carrm a little belnw their kneB, and heavy, bonis like .the men. Some ot the men had around their caps wreaths lor an ornament, made ot redv"whije,"jeiiwan!l blue rolors.1 I walked to arr adjoin ing ttllage, jTamjinauh. First thing on" entering 'was ihe cross. Houses about fifteen feet square Then foljows the description I have alreadv giv en. Perhaps I ought to say before continuing the quota tion .from my diary that, the cross is no uncommon thing in Austria. You may see them In the graveyard, by the church, at the entrance of a village, by the rt-adbide. (jn a farui, some times a half dozen in the space of a mil sometimes WefBgy of Christ alone on the cross', and sometimes the two thieves on each side oi him, but more frequently Mary with the in tatit Savior, and before these effigies a place to kneel, look and repeat prayers. Saw some men driving a herd of swine. They were the long nos d, flab sided breed that men, raised in Ohio thirty years , ago.Men wiih whips - ever- and anon cracking them, (this is a jrie-ti couutry for cracking whip.), and a young man with a long horn made out 'of the hiru ol an animal with which every five or ten, minutes he -blew a rude tune nof, unpleasant to a novice like me.' Saw a' drove of cattle; the drover 'also used a horn. Somnwlial further on saw the laying, of the foun dation of a brick bouse. About an equal number ol men and1 women were hi work together The women were carrying mor tar and wheeling dirt from the cellar, while ihe men did Ihe shoveling and laying the brick. The mortar, was quite thin, and they dipped it up with a ladle and poured it where they want ed it, discarding the uso ot the trowel altogether.- I stood and watched them while they spoke their short Bohemian language, irtid was, I suppose-, as gtt at a curiusity lo them as tuey were to -me. ...... j , "A lill'e further on I beard a inau a making a multeriug sound.

But both In Bohemia and in Styria and the other country districts, have a. very inferior class. of people.

Sabbath morning was wet : and ; drizzling, ytl be church was crowded to its ut most capacMy, bo' that there was no more Rtaodjng room, and all paid the 'strictest at tention to the services. I will quote a little here from my diary:., "when I got to the dQr I found the people crowding in though - the-; day was wet and drizzly,' and had beeu so "all mVnfngv The 'people 'were found, in, regular , procession ol some six persons' deep- and'ex tending, about, tern rods. , As they Approached (be door some church ofligial, I , suppose the priest, sprinkled , thera, with water by means ol1 a large hair brush.

About one half of the fudience on entering cast some money into the box and nine tenths kissed the glass of this caset only those ouiiiting so ld3o'WDordunaril almost impossible because of (he crowd pressing (or en trance.

J ;; Western Christian Advocate, Cincinnati, O. "The Power of Song." W. I. Fee, Pastor of Wesley Chapel, communicates' the fol lowing incident connected with the temperance work In this city: One day a lawyer came to my house.1 Hum had . ruined bim. He was not intoxicated at the time. De asked a pri vate interview. 'He said: "You see what I am now. I am the son of pious Methodist parents, who now reside in a distant city. Thefr hearts are well nigh broken by my prodigality. A lew days since 1 abandoned alf hope of refirm, and made up my mind, either to drink myself, to death, or to end my days in a more summary man ner. 1 had almost lost all de sire for ' reformation, when 1 heard that- bands of praying women were on the streets of this city. Curiosity led me to follow them, and listen to their prayers arid - songs. O, how it revived the days of iny boy. hood, and my subsequent prod igality! I was filled with re morse. I felt that I was hope lessly lostP ' ' ' :wAnd now," continued he, WI will relate the strangest in cident ! of my life', at the risk of being called a fool, point ing to his left ear, "five years since I entirely lost my hear ing in this ear, until yesterday, when I heard the temperance women sing. Previous ' this' for years, I bad only been fa miliar with the vilest songs. But sinte yesterday the songs sung by these women are being suns and played in my deaf ear, as if played upon an in strument, or sungbyahumbn voice. No other songs obtrude; onljrjehgicHif songs are sung; this gives naeTTope.'' Looking intently at me. he said, "iVill you believe me? ' I hear them now. There it is, Show pity, O Lord, forgive!' etc. Now It changes, -Rock of ages, cleft for me!' Rung loud enough for yoO to bear it. Listen, now it sings, 'Depth of mercy, can there be, Mercy still reserved for ntef' " "Now, do you think there is hope for me?''- 1 answered, Yes, but it will not avail for you to depend upo'h these songs; you must look to Christ " Looking sorrowfully a"t me he said," "tton't take away my -on ly hope." He left me. A few days afterward I wis called to see him in one ol our hospitals. His father was with bim, and a dispatch had just been sent to his mother to come lo the city and see him die. - Although al most delirious, he recognized me in a moment, and began to talk about the songs of the wo men as still sounding in his ear. He begged me to pray for him, and to ask the praying women to pray for bim also. A num ber of days elapsed before 'I could again visit the hospital. I went to learn the particulars of his death. Imagine my' sur prise, when I Jearned that he was rapidly recovering.- I has tened to his room, and a smil ing happy lace met me. He said, "1 want to leave this even ing for my home." Said he: 'I am saved. The prayers of my dear mother and the praying temperance women have been instrumental in leading aie to Christ." Said he: "You thought that my strange experience as the result ol mania a polu, but believe me, when I tell you that these songs are now ring ing io that ear. I hear nothing else.

It is a fact conceded by in telligent people that the man who advertises his business will always push ahead of bis neighbor who wits for busi ness to come to him. As It is with the indivMoal so it is with a community. The lown or vll lage whose merchants adver Use their business that; is, make known to the people of the whole county through the press what they have for sale will be sure to to distance their conservative" neighbors, who trust to lode. or for cus tomers. No matter how well know a bouse or a city may be as a trwllng yoint, t will lose its hold if it fails to maTse use of printer's ink. This is a fact which it would be well for all the merchants ol -eaxli town or city to consider, and by each pushing the : advertise ment of his businePS, hold tip and extend Ihe general bosi nesa. In proof of this- Idea we reproduce some interesting sta tistics below, taken from the Cleveland Leadef: ' There is this about the Chi cago business men whicto keeps them forever on the winning side. They do not wait for cus tomersto find them They ad vertise for trade, they go but and seek it A merchant pick ing up a Chicago paper in Omaha or "St. Paul can tell at a glance what sort of a wboiesale trade is being done in Chicago, and who is doinic it. Every kind of business from the news stands and tobacco stores to the heaviest wholesale trade, is constantly and conspicuous! ly advertised. The newspapers of other cities carry no such evi dence of home prosperity to the country round. The pass ing stranger might read the journals of C'nc.innati,' Cleve land, Pittsburg, or Buffalo for days without learning ' that these cities have any whole sale trade at alll Indeed, we believe there is an agreement among the wholesale ' mer chants of this ts'ty not to avail themselves of the 1 advanlages o'i advertising. Whether a similar rowipaot has been ea tered lnto)n other cities we are not informed, but a com pamonof the liberality of the different Western cities in re spect to newspaper advertising tells a most significant story. It is as follows: ! N.wipepp; adnrll.ini receipt. Per Amount annum tiereanlia. 1 Popala. tldn.

Cleve land has of late years mani fested in some directions con siderable of the spirit and en terprise which have made Chi cago supreme over all rivals. It will be an Important point gained when our mercatile men learn from those ot the Garden city' the value of jo diciously ' expended - printers' ink. - :- Hillsboro Gazette.
