I knov a little boy, ' ' :
And I've often liearJ It said
Tlmt lie never wa to tired
That be wished to go to bod.
Though he scarcely can hold up
Hi drowsy little head, .
Yet this very foolish boy
Can not bear to go to bed.
When the bljr.jrolden su n
Has lnld down to sleep ;
When the Iambi every oue .
Are lying by the sheep;
When underneath Its wing
Every chick takes Its head,
Still this odd little boy
- Does not want to go to bed.
Respectable Drinking.
T. De Witt Talmage.
As loug as you can made
drinking respectable, drinking
customs will prevail and the
ploughshare oi death, drawn by
terrible disaster, will go on
turning up tbiS whole conti
nenVIrom en to end, with
the long, deep, awlul furrow of
drunkards' graves.
Obi how this rum fiend
would like to go and bang op a
skeleton in your beautiful
home, so that when ou open
ed th front door to go in, you
would see it in , the ha1lvand
when you bat at your table,
you would see it banginp from
the wall; and as you opened
your bedroom door, you would
ilnd it stretched upon your pil
low; and waking at night, you
would (eel Kb cold hand peeing
over your face and piuching at
your heart.
There is no home so beauti
ful but may be devastated by
the awlul curse. Il throws iis
jargon into the sweetest har

lenced Sheridan's voice and
shattered lb- gulden scepter
with which he swriyed parlia
ments and courts?
VVhut foul spirit turned' the
aweet rythm of Robert Bnrn
into a tuneless babble? What
brought don Ihe ' majestic
Torni of one who awed the
American benate with elo
quenre, and afier awhile cur
rid him home (lend diunl
from the offi -e of the Secretary
ot Stale? What wob it that
swamped the noblp spirit of
one of the heroes of the hM
war, until onn night in a tlrun
ken fit, he reeled from the deck
of a Western oteamer and wan
drowned? There was one
whose voice we all loved to
hear. He was one of the most
claesic orators of the country.
People wondered whv a man of
so pure a heart, and so excel
lent a lite, should have such a
sad countenance always. They
knew not ibat Ins wife was a

An Ant-Cremationist's Invention.

this plan, the. corpnewould be

.would be tilled with (he same

The Proposed Artiticial Sea
in the Desert of Sahara.
The French Geographical
Society has expressed a favor
able opinion of a project which
lacks neither -grandeor nor
plausibility. Il is nothing less
than the forming of an Inland
sea to the south of the French
colony of Algeria.
"There are in Northern Afri
ca lakes known by the name
of the cnotts, which run dry
at certain periods ot the year,
A chain of these cbotts, the
first ot which is only separated
Irom the Mediterranean by
Bandy downs, extends as far as
Biskra to the south of Constan
tino. The last of the chain
being twenty seven metres be
low the level of the sea, it is
thought feasible, by cutting
through the sand above the
first chott, to admit the waters
of the Mediterranean to this
series of lakes, aud thus form
a salt water lake at the south
ern extremity of the chain, im
portant enough to admit ol tbe
creation of seaports. "'From
these adancec' posts," says the
author of the report on this
scheme, "we should watch the
nomadic tribes oi the South.
The numerous and rich oases
of the Souf and the Ouad, now
only nominally subject to us,
would tall completely jiito our
power. Our coloniziftion would
exiend to the south of .Conb'tan
tiue as Burel as it is establish'
ed on the Mediterranean coast
A beneficieut change of cli
mate l) also hot the least of
the advantage promised by
this bold scheme, the first step
to ihe realization ol which has
already been taken, the Bey ol
Tunis having been requested
by the society to allow a sur
vey of the country to be made.
Concerning Sunstrokes.
Tii e season is now at hand
when divers people will be vol
unteering information as to
how euimtroke may be avoided.
Smne ol the ideas expressed
ure quit e amusing, if not uselul,
us witness the following:
About a yeur since 1 saw in a
newspaper en account of a case
of sunstroke, written by the
party himself. After suffering
a long time, aud having to a
considerable degree recovered,
he experienced sufieriug even
irom the rays of the moon.
This led him to the reduction
that it was not altogether the
heal ol the s'id that produced
prostration. After much re
search he discovered that the
injury came from the chemical
ray, and not from (be heat ray.
He was guided to this by the
tact that a photograph could
not be taken through a hollow
glass.- Accordi igly he lined
his baL wiih two linings one
ot orange yellow to arrest the
chemical ray, and one of green
10 arrest the beat ray. Thus
piepared he went where t the
rays of the sun were tlie most
in en8e with perfect impunity.
It is well known tWt a negro
is seldom sunstruck. .The col
or : ot hia skin, over the skull
being ol an orange yellow may
assist in accounling lor the fact.
I practiced upon' this sugges
tion last summer, lined my hat
with green and orange paper
and had confidence in the truth
of the theory to neglect my
umbrella which I had never
done belore. I mentioned this
to many, who tried it also, and
in many cases that came under
my observation,' they uniform
ly asserted that the oppressive
beat of the sun upon, the bead
was much relieved. ' , .; .,
A man who was seen coming
out of a Texas newspaper of
fice with his nose split open,
one eye. gouged out, and , an
ear chawed iff, explained to a
policeman that lie was not a
jobscriber to the paperhe
had simply ex tered the office
to ascertain it' the editor, was

A Wholesome Field Drink.
j The excessive use of . cold
water during the sweltering
beat of summer, of'en results
in serious and alarming ill
wess, Il is therefore advisable
Ibat some beverages should be
substituted for it, of which
thpse' oppressed can partakei
with 8ufely. For this purpose
I am aware of no better or
more relreshing drink than the
following: Take of the best
White Jamaica ginger root,care
fully bruised, two ounces;
water, bix quarts, to bo boiled
lor about five minutes, then
strain; to the strained liquor
udd one pound ot sugar, and
again place it over the fire;
keep it well stirred tilt the su
gar is perfectly dissolved, and
then pour it into an earthen
vessel, into which you have
previously put two drachms of
tartaric acid, and the rind of
one lemon, and let it remain
till the i heat is reduced to a
lukewarm temperature; then
add a teaspoonful of yeast,
stirring them well together,
aud bottle lor use. The corks
must be ,well secured. The
drink will be in high perfection
in lour or five days. This is a
very refreshing and wholesome
beverage, and onewlnch may
b partaken ,, of without any
unpleasant results, even in the
hottest weather.

Last month was the anniver
sary of tbe memorable financial
crash al Vienna in 1873. We
learn from our European ex
changes that traces ot that un
fortunate event are not yet to
tally obliterated. Sixteen joint
6tock, companies, forty-four
banks, thirty-six industrial
companies, eighteen building
societies and one insurance
company, representing in thei
aggregate a' capital value) of
315,500.000 florins, continue to
the present day under the
Bankruptcy Court. With re
gard to other more fortuuate
establishments, which have
managed somehow to weather
the storm,' the effects of the
crash are painfully visible in
the quotation of shares. It is
scarcely three-quarters .of a
year since our panic of 1873,
and If the longer time has not
served to obliterate tbe effects
of the Vienna panic, it is hard
ly to be expected that impaired
confidence here should be re
stored in the shorter time of
nine months.
The latest accounts from tbe
recent railroad accident at
Sirong. Creek place the num
ber of wounded at seventy
eight, nearly all slightly. One
lady Irom Clinton, Conn., has
both legs broken and is injured
Internally. Every car of the
train was overturned. The en
gine is partly upright. The ac
cident was caused by the switch
becoming misplaced before the
whole train had passed, throw
ing the last truck from the
track. Superintendent Wilcox,
of tbe Shore line, when he saw
the rear car swung off, jumped
Irom the baggage car to the
flits below, a distance of six
teen feet. The cars lell on him
and broke his neck. The cause
of the accident is now ascer
tained to be as follows: The
wuichmau at the west end ol
the bridge, while the train was
passing over his switch became
impatient aud slipped tbe
switch before tbe last car had
passed. ' ;
Donald3on has added anoth
er (rightful trick to his evolu
tions in the clouds on the Ira
peze bar. He says the regular
drop is unint3resticg now.
Now he does something worth
doing, he says. The ring to
which the trapeze is attached
' a a 1
uuorus mm an enlarged oppor
tunity, lie bangs on his toes
on this ring, aud when away
up half a mile above the house
tops he lets go entirely and
drops ' headlong down and
again catches himself with his
toes on the bar. 'This drop-'
ping act is . pronounced the
mosl.lrightlul arid blood curd
ling sight ever witnessed. The
aeronaut hangs down his full
length, straight and stiff, and
all of a sudden he drops and
comes swooping down, only to
catch himself nicely at the
proper time. '. A wave 9f the

multitude below quiet their

Thb advanced rates adopted
by the fire insurance compa
nies a year or two ago, togeth
er with the few fires during the
past year, have enabled them
to make money, and several
companies that were fco crip
pled by the ' Chicago find Bos
on fires that they were in de
tspair have now got on their
leel again. New companies are
being organized in .New York
and Philadelphia. These will
most likely compete for busi
ness by ouiting down rates
which will naturally have the
eflect of, making the old com
panies ret am to something like
their former schedule. A con
siderable reduction in rates
may theiefore we think, pres
ently be looked for.
Newspaper Advertising.
Newspaper advertising it
now reorgnized by business
men having faith in theii own
wares as the most eflecilve
means of securing for their
goods a wide recognition of
their merits. '
Newspaper advertising im
pels inquiry, and when tbe ar
tide offered is of good quality
and at a fair price, the natural
result is increased sales.
Newspaper advertising is a
permanent addition to the rep
utationot the goods advertised,
because it Is a permanent in
fluence always al work in their
interest.. . . t
Newspaper advertising is the
mo.t energetio and vigilant of
salesman addressing thousand

tiser's interest, and ceaselessly
at work seeking customers
from all classes. . ;
Newspaper advertising pro
motes trade, lor even idMhe

In compliance with Congres
sional adion, between six and
seven hundred male and fe
male employees where dis
charged from the 'Government
Departments inWashington on
the 1st day of July. The' in
creased amount of business in
all the Departments, caused by
the late protracted war, neces
sarily augumented the clerical
force to mora than quadruple
its former maximum; and ' tor
years alter active war opera
tions had ceased there was
very little abatement in the
amount of work devolving'up
on and requiring prompt at
tention in each division of tho
Government. With the lapse
of time, however, the amount
of labor required began to di
mish, and for some time past
yearly reductions have been
made in the number of clerks
employed. -
, Tub editor ol the Woosler
Democrat speaks as follows of
the oldest man in Medina
county: "We are gratified with
having an interview with Mr.
Romer Griffin, a citizen of Lo
di, ffho is tbe oldest man in
Ohio, if not in' the United
States. . lie was born in Gran
by, Conn., on tbe 2 2d of April,
1859, and Is, therefore, now
over one hundred and fifteen
years old. About this being
his age there seems to be no
question. Tbe oldest inhabi
tants have always known, bim,
and for. many years he haB
been their oldest man. lie

five years old, and with his
