."V- 1H TTTU8. The world carctli not for our loving, And careleie are we of its themes. Two warm-hearted, satisfied lovers Absorbed in our own blissful dreams. Our footfalls aro lost in the medley Of nurnberlets hurrying feet But wo list to our own footfalls only, And know that their music is sweet FOR HIS SAKE. .Felix del Arabal and Raymond de Lerida had been friends from childhood. They were educated together and served in the eamn regiment. Felix was older than Raymond, nnd possessed a more decided character. His «veu temper and calm, excellent judge ment. ihcerciaod a beneficial influence over his Lot-headed friend. On ono occasion, in a skirmish with the iSuglish, .Raymond bad saved Felix's life by receiving a sword-thrust intended for the latter, and after that the friendship of Felix and Raymond had increased until it was without limit. The two friends were stationed at Gribrnlter, when that stronghold •was in possession of the Spanish, but be sieged by the British. It was ft sunny day in August, 1772. The streets of Gibraltar were alive with the gay anc». brilliant populace. Tho greatest crowds congroqated in the streets through which the priucoss' rogi juent was to pass. This regiment was com posed of the curled darlings of old Spain, aud was great favorite of the people—but above all with tho ladies, for its officers were all picked men. Raymond and Felix were two of the hauasome3t men in the regiment. As they marched side by side, Raymond suddenly •exclaimed: "Felix, quick look there. Look at that marvellously beautiful woman on tho bal cony overhead!" Felix looked up and beheld a young lady of striking lovliness, half hidden Ly tho flowering vines which covered the balcony. "You are like a very ferret, for discover ing pretty woman," laughed Folix. Th'ey marched on, but Raymond kept turning b.iok to look at the lady until she Wis lost to view. She also fastened her eyes on the two young officers—tho one still pale from his lute wound, nnd a noble appearance, tho other, shorter but well formed, was elegant and active. Behind the lady stood a man well advanced in lifo. By ilia dress and commanding air it could be seen that he ,wns a person of distinction. Ho was, in fact, the mayor of the city. A look of annoyance crossed his face ae ho caught tho admiring glances which the you tig officers cast upward on his wife,and taking her rather roughly by the arm, ho said,authoritatively: "Yon had bet'.er retire from the balcony, Laura. Those popinjays stare at you as bold'.y as if you was a performing monkey on an organ." At tho military ball given that night the "young officers were fortunate enough to be introduced to a beautiful creature, who was known as the victim of an old and ty ranical husband. Raymond ha! the felicity of dancing frequently with Laura, nnd their mutual attir ation became noticeable. "Take care!" vliispered Felix to Ray mond as they stood apart and obsorvod •her. "Tako care of what—of whom?" "Why, don't you seo? Her old husband is watching you with blazing oyes, and look ing aa if he would liko to swallow you at one Rnlp." "Why Felix?" "Because ho sees—it being plain enough •—vorcr admiration for his wits," "O pshaw! Anybody may admire a iprelty woman without meaning any Imrrn. I think bo is disquieting himself for a very small itler." "A small matter now, I grant you," re plied his friend, "and furthoruiore, that he who owns that piicoloss jewel is not worthy of its (ygaesaion. Still it is his, and he guardsjttcurt'tully. Therefore, I isny to you, ilf *oml, stop just where you arc, lost tho h% ,R in of mere admiration of another ma^^wifo grow into the very bis ono of lovi^ her and thereby losing two souls." Raymond looked gravo for a moment, but the siren who hart CBtbralled bis fancy at 'that fatal moment whirled by him in the arms of a fellow eflicer, and ffashed on him so enchanting a smile that he fairly lost his \sits. That smile determined tho tate of threo people. Turning to his friend, Raymond said recklessly: "And I say to you, Felix, that I am but 25,and do not know.oeinga soldier, if Ishall live twentv-five hours. Let us, then, enjoy life while it is ours, Felix, and leave cold blooded prudence to gray beards. Raymond contrived to sue Lura fre quently, but not. to speak to her, for her husband would not permit her even to go to church without an attendant. In his des peration ho determined to disguise himself and follow her to evening mass. Ho succeeded in kneeling beside her, iuiI slipping into her prayer-book a little noto. She replied in a very timid, tear stained note, requesting him not to write any more, but assuring him when and •where sho would grant him an interview. Tho next day, when he was sitting at his window, old Maria passed and made a sign to him. On the very wings of love he flow clown the stairs, out into the street, and followed her at a little distance. Tbo old woman fumbled in her pocket, nml then drew forth a littlo note, which Raymond snntched in his eagerness and tore open. It contained only these few words: "My husband goes out of town to-day. shall be at liberty to-morrow night and can tee you. It will be the first and it must be Iho last time." Muvia then deseribed the place of meet ing. where she, the nurse, would be await ing him. Raymond kissed the note, ap.d offered the old woman a purse, but she spurned it from her, and in a quivering voice said: "Sir, I am that girl's foster mother, and that which I have consented to do to please her may be a weakness, but that which you are about to do is on in famy. The next day Felix dropped into hi? friend's room after a late breakfast, and found him alternately tearing his hair and breaking the furniture, looking the incar nation of rage and death. "Greatheavens? What has happened?" he asked. Raymond answered, grating his teeth: "Accursed be military life! Accursed to all time be this gilded slavery! Accursed be the colonel, that brainloss despot? Ac cursed be the epaulettes, which, like a chain, I cannot break! Accursed—" "Hold" said Felix "don't waste time ours ing every individual separately, rank and tile. Have yon any trouble with the col onel?" "Trouble?" echoed Raymond. ''Trouble! He has destroyed the whole abppiness ot my life. Take that and read it!" He handed his Laura's billetdoux. Felix read if. "Wi 11?" he said, calmly. "Well!" replied Raymond. "Am I not the most unfortunate of men!" "These lines would give me to under stand just the contrary." "Hut do you not know that I am officer ef the advance gua^d to-night," said the younc lover biting his nails to the quick. Felix laughed outright. "And is this the reason of your violence and despair? Cheer up man. I will take your watch, and some time you can do duty for me when it's my turn to want to be off guard." Raymond ptrained Ms friend to his heart in t! a excess of his joy. "Felix!" he cried, "my Felix! I be lieve you were born for my happiness! You are the beneficient being who scatters flow ers over my pathway!" At daybreak the next day iymond, pre ceded '.y u.3 unwilling guide of tho night before (Maria), stole out of a small gate and took his way to the city. His whole bei.ig was permeated by happiness. He trod lightly, his heart full of gratitude to that dear friend who had enabled him to ep the appointment which would be the most cherished of his whole life. So ec static were his feelings that it was not until he was close upon the city that he noticed something strange in its appeaiance. There nas an unwonted disorder on all around which set him wondering. At last he met a young lieutenant, who uttered an exclam ation of surprise and joy then rushed to him and shook his hand, exclaiming: "How Uiighted Lenna, I am to see you!" "indeed!" said Raymond. "And why are you so glad to see me tbifl morning of sUotben?^ "Why? Because I understand you wore the officer of the advance guard laBt night. "And what then?" inquired tho captain. "What thou? It is strange you do not know! The English made a sortie laBt night and the commander of the post was killed." "Meroiful God! Killed! Felix! Oh, my friend you have died in my place—for my sake!" On a fine Sunday in 1833 fair ladies flocked to a church that stood on the left at the road. Gay was tho scene with youths and maidens, but that which most ca ight the eye of an Euglish artist was a group of the common people oc the light cf the toad. They were listening to a bare-footed Cap uchin monk, who standing cn a mound of earth, preaohed to his humble audienco with such fervor and eloquence that his whole face seemed diffused with divine light. He was an old man. His cowl had fallen back, exposing ahead aud face so noble in outline that the artist draw forth his sketch book and began to sketch. An old Span ish peasant, standing by, looked over his elbow as he worked, and at last burst forth in praise of the lesemblunce: "Ah!" he exclaimed, "it's a fine head you have there but it would have been still finer had you drawn it in his youth." "Did you know him then?" inquired the Englishman. "Yes I was a private in his regiment. Ah! I tell you he welded a valiant sword in 1782." "Why did the soldier turn monk?" "Ah, that's along story of the long ago," "Tell it to me?" The old man did not neod much urging, and related the above story of the two friends—how that after the one had died for the other. Raymond only waited until his country had no longer need of his good blade to renounce the glory, wealth, a noble name, and the world, to becomo a bare footed friar, begging his bread from door to door. "And the lady—what bocamo of her?" asked the artist. "When she learned that she had been the indirect cause of a man's death, and that her lover, a prey to remorse and grief, would never look upou hor face agaiu, hor reason left her. In her ravings she re vealed her secret, aud hor husband im mured her in a convent just opposite his domain, where death soon relieved her of her sufferings." What's the name of yonder monk?" "In religion. Brother Antonia by nativ ty, Raymond do Lerida. An only son, he inherited a princely fi itnue, which he gave to the church and the poor. You seo, after his guilty passion had caused tho death of his friend there was but two alternatives left him—cither According to the census bullttin, Illinois raised 51,000,000 bushels of wheat this year Indiana, 47.000,000 Michigan, yo,(100,000 Iowa, 31,000,000 California, 20,000,(11)0 Missouri, 25,000,000, and Wisconsin, 21, 000,000. That we aro a silver-producing nation is a fact that strikes one with great force, when reading the Census Bulletin on mining. In 1855 the product, was $50.(K'0 in ISOOitwas $150,000 in 1805 $11,000,000 in .870 it was $10,000,000 in 18"5 it jumped to $35,- r.03,000,and in 1880 to $87,000,000. A San Francisco jury has just refused to convict a mate who swore at his seamen in defiance of the orders of his captain, who had prohibited the «mo. Judge Hoffman (tho trial was in a federal court) charged vigorously against tho prisoner, but two men on the jury wero two much for ono man on the bench. A Boston gentleman who has taken a great interest in the poorer classes of soci ety, has been travelling extensively in Eu rope the past summer. He soys that in no town or city that he has visited, either in America or Europe, has ho found tho mill operatives and laboring classes provided with such comfortable tenement houses as in Belfast, Ireland, They teach exalted theology up among the Green Mountains. A Vermont clergy man makes tho future of good Christians clear by saying: "After crossing tho mystic rivor we shall go on from the man to the angel, from the angel to the archangel, from the archangel to the celestial, from tho celestial to the divine, and then, gather ing the stars in a cluster about our heads, dream out tho endless dream of eternity." A ton cf gold or silver contains 29,100 ounces. A ton of gold is worth §602,875. A ton of silver, at the present rate ptr ounce, is worth $32,000. A cubic foot of gold weighs 1,200 pounds, and is worlh nearly $300,000. A cubio foot of silver weighs GOO pounds, and is worth about $10,000. The value of gold coin, bars, and bullion in circula'ion in the world is estimated at $3,500,000,000. This would mako in a mass a twenty-five foot cube. One-tenth of the work on the experimen tal tunnel under the English channel has already been completed. The tunnel is seven by nine feet in size, and when com pleted will be twenty miles in length. If it proves a success, it will be enlarged to dimensions Mifficient for tho past-age of rail way trains. The material through which the work is pushed is chalk, and it is dis placed at the rate of about a lineal yard per hour. The water in tho channel is about 160 feet deep at the deepest point, and the tunnel is about 200 feet below the water. The wonderful wooden tunnels cover forty miles of the Central Pacific railway. They are of two kinds, steep roofs and flat joofs. They cost from $8,000 to $12,000, and in some places $30,000 a mile. Fire precautions are very thorough. At the summit is an engine and tank always ready to flood the ignited spot in an instant. Sometimes five feet of snow falls upon mem in a day, and often thirty feet lie on the ground at one time, and in many places snow accumulates to the depth of fifty feet above those great wooden arches. European papers are talking of the pos sibility of American wheat being evontually driven out of the markets of Europe by grain from Tunis. Land can be bought"in Tunis, it is said, for half tho price it cont in the Western States of the American union, and it is so fertile that it will yield two crops in the year. The quality of the grain, moreover, is equal to that of the much prized Hungarian wheat. Excellent horses, though of a higher breed, can be bought for a fractic*) of ths oost of horses in the United States, and draught oxen for less than one-half the American price. The cost of transportation is also much less. Northern Africa may yet become a formid able rival to American farmers. The Hollanders ore more given to smoking than any northern people—" dreaming with the eyes open." The boatmen oL the Terschkrit, the aquatic dilligence of Hol land, measures distance by smoke from one place to another, not so many miles, but so many piDes. Eutering the house, your host offers "you a cigar filling, another, often insisting upon leaving your cigar- case. Some go to sleep with pipe in their mouth, relight it on wakening in the night, and in the morning before stepping out of bed. Diderot says: "A dutchman is a living alembic." 'The cigar is not the companion of indolence, but the stimulant and aid to labor. Smoke is called their second breath, and the cigar the sixth finger of the hand. Belle Siddons was, at tho beginning of the rebellion, one of the most beautiful and accomplished ladies in St. Louis. Bhe was southern in her sympathies, and was for a time a successful spy during the war of the rebellion. Detected finally, she was sent to prison, and later was passed through the lines. Later she married a gambler, and for a dozen years she was a leading spirit in gambling saloons in the far west, and has probably had more stirring adventures than any other living woman. Such a career al ways ends in wretchedness therefore, we are not surprised to learn that she is now living in Sin Francisco, drunken and mis erable, ao obieot to bo pitied Mid Ann Mtl. /r to kill himself or to besome a penitent. Ho cliosc the latter, and since then no one has done moro good than he has. I think bis sin has been forgiven him, don't yon?" The Englishman glanced at the "bare headed monk. Not a lino in his furrowed face but spoko of virtuo and a heart de tached from worldly things. "He looks as if ho had attained a peace that passeth all understanding," said the artist, putting his sketch-book in his pocket and strolling away toward the convent. Pitliy I'aragmpits. Last week the Hartford Courant cele brated its 117th birthday. There are now in existence five papers which were pub lished at tho boginning of tho Revolution ary war. The others aro New Hampshire Gazelle, tho Worcester Spy, tho Newport Mercury, and the Maryland Gazelle. HOUSE AND FARM. A Variety ol Farm Items. Mr. I. A. Hedges, the editor of the Syrup and Sugar department of Colman's Rural, reports larger and better products of syrup and cane sugar by the Iowa and Minnesota manufacturers than heretofore. Of syrups tne crops have yielded from 125 to 225 gallons per aero. A Minnesota man ufacturer lias made 8,000 gallons, and is about half done. He wholesales his syrup at fifty cents per gallon. The St. ijouis pork packers buy much of the Northwestern crop for use in their business. It is stated that Col. Daniel Murphy, of Halleuk Station, Elko county, Nev. .posses 6f 4,000,000 acres of land lying together in Mexico, 'jO.otlO acres in Nevada, and 23,000 acros in California. The Mexioo nnliions v, ere bouyht four years ago for £40,000— twopence half-penny per acre. This im mense estate is sixty miles long, and cov ers a beautifully diversified stretch of forest and meadow. As a railway station is short ly to be opened within a dozen miles of one extremity of these possessions, Col. Murphy may era long confidently antici pate an appreciable mcrease upon the two pence half-penny. Mr. Bueke, of Canada, calls attention to the faot that tho raspberry mnv be trans planted at any time during"tho year, wheth er in full leaf or otherwise, if a good spade ful of earth is raised with the plant, the hole iu which it is to be deposited having been previously made. He usually fills up the gap in the row with present year's young plants during the month of August, and finds Ihoy succeed bettor whon they have time to take hold with their roots before the season's growth is fully ended. The composition of buakwheat has been examined by M. C. Lechartier. He fouud that the proportions of mineral matter in the straw increases with the weight. The straw may be richer in phosphoric acid than the grain, differing in this respect com pletely from the straw of other cereals. The aggregate of the principal fertilizers re moved from tho soil by on entire crop of buckwheat is much more considerable thau for a orop of wheat yielding the same quan tity of grain. Too much talking or giving of advice is not healthily conducive to worldly success. Dependence on other men's ideas general ly ends in failure. A raw proposition, illy digested, has been the ruin of thousands of farmers. One should how out his own horticultural path, aud though watching his neighbors' plans, failures or successes, should nover try to imitate half a dozen of them at once. All this may seem trite and worn and aphoristic, but it. bears directly on the general subject of succcss in out door pursuits. The 60-called American Sebrights aro a new race of poultry which tho fanciers are endeavoring to push into notoriety. They are at present merely a mongrel raco, which seems to have originated from a non descript kind of fowl, produced from a cross of liight Brama oc a Silver-spangled Hamburg. They very much resemble the latter bird both in carriage, comb, and plumage, but are larger amd heavier. It does not appear that they are any better than the kinds we have, and tho only rec ommendation they have is that they are new, which, with some persons, is prefera ble to anything that is old and valuable. The beginning of 11 ix culture iu Kansas, says a writer in The liui al New Yorker, dates back to about tho year 1870. Previ ous to that time tho principal crop of small grain had been fall wheat, but tho yield of that cereal was so uncertain and the crop was attended with so many failures that its cultivation gradually ceased in this part of tho state. The introduction of flax sup plied the place of wheat, and the success attending its cultivation soon led to a iwpid incrcaso in the area sown to it, nnd it now occr.pios a prominent rank in our ind ustries, both in regard to tho number of acres sown and remunerative returns for tho labor expended. Wliat is tlm Divided Skirt? From the Liverpool Mail. The opponents of the crinolotte have taken advantage of the outcry against the insidious pioneer cf tho crinoline to bring forward tho "divided skirt" as a candidate for popular feminine favor. The crinoletto could not possibly be worn with the divided skirt, any more than a man could wear such a contrivance under his trousers. Vis countess Haberton is tho inventor of this skirt, her idea being 4o consult the conven ience of women their attire. As she says herself, the best means of doing this is to make dress subservient to the laws of phyGiology. Women have two legs, but by tying 1 oth together in the senseless fashion of the day they practically reduce the num ber to out'. 1'hoy leave themselves two feet to shnfile about with, lmt do their best to disable these with high heels, pointed toes, nnd that dreadful invention, patent leather, It is quite certain that a revolution in dress of some kind is fast approaching, but it ap pears to be an equal chance between crino line and trousers. Charcoal and Sulphur for Hogs, From tho Rural New Yoilcer. It is surprising to those not acquainted with the fact to see how much crude sul phur pigs will eat whon fattening. It should be given to them every few days or, what is better yet, be kept in the pens where they can help themselves to it. When pigs are fed a large amount of hearfy food, their stomachs become disordered nnd they need sulphur and charcoal to neutralize the acidity and to correct the condition of theii stomachs. When it is given to them plen tifully they will eat better, digest more and are freer from bowel disorders. Those cor rectives help to keep the blood pure and the skin free from affections. When hogs have these correctives their flesh must be healthier. We have had hundreds of hogs and never a case of cholera, which we at tribute to the healthful effects of plenty of charcoal and sulphur together with succu lent feed. A long-continued corn diet will invariably produce fever and more or less inflammation of the stomach and bowels. Kerosene Stoves—What Kind to Buy. Prom thelluralNew Yorker. Our family has had one in nse since May 1. The total amount of oil used, including that burned in our lamps, has been 37 gal lons, costing $3.70. The cost of oil for the stove has been therefore less than two cents per day—cheap enough certainly. The cooking has all been done on this stove about six days in the- week, tho cook-stove only being used for washing,heavy baking, etc. We consider the kerosene stove one of the greatest conveniences that has been invented for years, one ttiat nearly every family in this section that has enterprise enough to tako the papers and read them has availed themselves of. A meal can be cooked on them in about the same time it requires to get a coal fire ready for cooking, and then if a little hot water is wanted at anytime, as in sickness, it can be had in a few minutes. Another important consideration is, it does not heat the room, an advantage that any woman will appreciate during the summer months. These stoves are now kept by all hardware dealers in endless variety, so that there is no difficulty in procuring what one wishes. And now word of advice in purchasing be sure and buy one of the greatest heating capacity to be found, one with four burners is the best. The largest can be run as lightly as you wish, while a small one will not do all you desire. I think that our oil stove has saved us, in fuel, the cost of,it already besides its great convience. Fmni Girlhood to 'Woma'nhoM. Prom tho Century Magazine. There are two periods in the moral and intellectual development of a girl which cause the profoundest anxiety to a mother. At five years old, or thereabouts, the period of babvhood ia •"•wt, while the period of girlhood is not yet reached, and, between the two, oomes a time of anarchy and chaos. The little soul is now bursting its shackles, and trying to readjust itself to a new condition. The child is ceasing to be mere pet and plaything, and is beginning to live an individual lif s. Nothing is more common than to see a docile, well-trained ohild suddenly develope, without any ap parent reason, a willfulness and insubor dination entirely at variance with its previ ous habits. The mother, who has been dreaming of a sweet daughter who is to walk beside her all her days, making life fragrant and beautiful to her by sharing with her all her youthful hopes, and joys, and trnsts, turns heart-sick at the naughtiness of the half fledged termagant. For it is the good, cher ubio little girl who usually manifests the change: atpoiled QhUd i» to tfawOBghlj disagreeable nil tho while that any acces sion of badnesB is not noticeable. A great deal of self-condemnation and unhappy foreboding would be spared the mother if she would only recognize that much of what is so very unlovely is not essentially wrong—that it is merely what is good in a state of unripeness. The fragrant blossom has withered and fallen uway, leaving in its place the hard and acid embryo fruit. A wise mother will be very careful to distin guish between those qualities which prom ise evil in their developed form and those which are mere crudities, and her aim will be to foster all the unfolded possibilities in her child's nature, and help to bring them to a beautiful maturity. Every one knows how tiresome and un attractive little girl usually is when she has outgrown her infantile oweetness. The little impertinences, the saucy retorts and unflattering personalities which have won for her smiles aud caresses, or at worst an admiring reproof, all at once become intol erable.and are rebuked with acerbity. The very ways which she had been taught to consider charming become subjects for dis pleasure when the baby roundness and dimples are gone. Her sense of justice is outraged, and the unw&rped sense of jus tice iu a child is often very strong. She becomes a little Ishmael, her hand against every man's, and every man's hand against her. In a certuin Bense this can scaroely be avoided, but, if the mother's love be unfailing, and her sympathy always ready, she can keep Bweet the fountain of love and trust which, without that refuge might be come very bitter. Just when this new life is uufolded, a mother's wise care is most earnestly needed. The 6onl which has seemed to draw its life from hers is begin ning to lead an individual existance. It is to the perfect developement of this individ uality that the mother sheuld bend all her strength. Each human soul contains with in itsolf tho germ of its own lifo. To make of it all that may be made, the mother only should guide the growth, leaving it free-within the limits of moral probity to grow into its fullest possibility. She can not lop it off here and there, or suppress its erowth yonder, without maiming and stultifying the whole nature. The dangerous quicksands of this peri od safely past, the mother beams to breathe freely again. She again begins to see visions, and to dream dreams, till the the second and more serious season of an archy comes to try her faith. Childhood is over, and womanhood is yet far away. The whole being, moral, intellectual and physical, is in a state of ferment. New motives, now principles, now emotions, are battling for predominance, aud, until these relative claims are adjusted, no peace can be hoped for. This second chaotic period— which comes at abaut 14 years of age—lasts longer, and brings a more hopeless and radical overturning of that whioh had seemed so firmly established. If a moth er's care were needed in the eailior change, it is infinitoly more needed now. New traits seem to be starting into life, new de velopments are manifested. Changes not only in purposes and ideas are taking place, but changes in temperament, in dis position, 'in tone are manifesting them selves. There is need of a wise hand which shall guide without galling, a tender heart which shall sustain without com promising with evil. To aid in the con flict and insure victory, nothing will help a mother moro surely, nor direct her more easily in this difficult task, than tho rec ognition that this, also, is merely a stage of growth necessary to a full and perfect development of her child's nature, and that to her is intrusted tho privilege of foster ing tho growth, while sho shall be looking to the end with the prophetic oye of love.

White or Brown Bread From the Niaeteenth Century. The oarliest agitator in the matter ob served two years ago, when traveling in Sicily, that the laboring classes there live healthily and work well upon a vegetable diet, the staple article of which is bread made of well ground wheat-meal. Nor are the Sioiliaps by any means the only people so supported. "The Hindus of the northwestern provinoe can walk 60 or 80 tnllea day with no ether feed than 'chapatties,' made of the whole meal, with a little 'ghee,' or Galan butter," Turkish and Arab porters, capable of carying bur dens of from 400 to 600 pounds, live on bread only, with the occasional addition of fruit and vegetables. The Spartans and Romans of old time lived their vigorous lives on bread made of wheaten meal. In northern as well a southern olimates we find the same thing. In Russia, Sweeden, Scottand and elsewhere the poor live chief ly on bread, always made from some whole meal—wheat, oats or rye—and the peasantry of whatever climate so fed always compare favorably with our south English poor, who, in conditions of in digence precluding them from obtaining sufficient meat food, starve, if not to death, at least into sickliness, on the white bread it is our modern English habit to prefer. White bread alone will not support animal lifo. Bread made of the whole grain will. The experiment has been tried in France by Magendie. Dogs were the subjects of the trial, and every care was taken to equalize all the other conditions—to proportion the qnantity of food given in each case to the weight of the annual experimented, upoa. andso fortE". The result was sufficiently marked. At the end of 40 days the dogs fed solely on white bread died. The dogs fed on bread made of the whole grain re mained vigorous healthy and well nourish ed. Whether an orignally healthy human being, if fed solely on white bread for 40 days, would likewise die at the end of that time remains, of course, a question. The tenacity of life exhibited by Magendie's dogs will not evidently bear comparison with that of the scarcely yet forgotten 40 days' wonder, Dr. Tanner. Nor is it by any mean3 asserted that any given man or child would certainly remain in vigorous health for an indefinite length of time if bed solely on wheat-meal bread. Not a single piece of strong evidence has been produced, however, to show that he would not and in the only case in which whole meal bread has been tried with any per sistency or on any considerable scale among us—to wit, in jaiis—facts show such bread to be an excellent and wholesome substitute for more costly forms of nutritious food. Superstition of Southern Negroes. A striking illustiation of the strong hold which superstition still keeps npon the Southern negroes and at the same time of the coincidence which, to their narrow minds, seem to justify a belief in the mys tery of charms and incantations has recent ly been offered in the course of a legal trial in Sumpter County, S. C. This was the case of the State against Henry John ston for the murder of John Daris on the 5th of last February. Johnston was in love with Davis's wife and by the advioe of a conjurer he resorted to various oharms to secure her affeetion. Having succeeded is 4#? ill- this his next step was to remove her buB- band. For this purpose he procured a charmed bullet and shot Davis dead. The body was found and Johnston was arraigned. To his surprise, and that of the negroes who filled the court room, he was found guilty and sentenced to be hanged on No vember 25. Ilis astonishment at this re sult was largely due to the fact that he had procured from the oonjurer a charm war ranted to protect him from all punishment for his crime. He still expects, however, to be saved from iha gallows, being es tablished in this comfortable faith by tho singular circumstances that during the trial two of the jurors were taken suddenly ill and had to be replaced by otheis, and that within threo hours after he was sen tence the sheriff of the county, a robuBt mai in the prime of life, dropped dead with out ippaaent cau«». A PATHETIC STORY. Natbjr hi Ireland, Toledo Blade. In oar party was an Amerioan gentleman, who was pleased with an abundance of boys, but no girl, and he and his wife had been contemplating the adoption of a girl. Here was an oportunity to secure not only a girl, but just the kind of a girl that he would have given half his estate to be the father of. And so he opened negotiations. An Irishman who kne ff him, expluined to the father and mother that the gentle man was a man of means, x.Vat his wife was an excellent, good woman, and that the child would be adopted regularly under the laws of the Btato in which he lived, and would be educated, and would rank equally with his own children in the matter of in heritance, and all that. In short, she was made to understand that Norah would be ruared a lady. Then the American struck in. She, the mother, might select a girl to accompany the child across the Atlantic, and the girl selected should go into his family as the child's nurse, and that the ohild should be reared in the religion of its parents. Tho father and mother consulted loug and anxiously. It was a terrible struggle. On the one hand was the child's advantage, on the other paternal and maternal love. Finally a conclusion was arrived at. "God help mo," said the mother. "You shall have her. I know you will be good to her." Then the arrangements were pushed very briskly and with regular Americun busi ness-like vehemence. The girl elected to act as nurse was the mother's sister a comely girt of 20. The American took the ohild and rushed out to a haberdasher's and purchased an outfit for her. He put Bhoes aud stockings on her, which wrsa novel ex perience, and a pretty little dress, and a little bat with a feather in it. and a litie sash and all that sort of thing, and he pro cured shoes and stockings for tho elder girl and a tidy dress and a hat, and shawl, and so forth. And then he brought them back, instructing the mother that he should leave with them for Cork the next morning at 11, and that the girl and child should bo dressed and ready to depart. The next morning came, and the Ameri can went for his child. She was dressed, though very awkwardly. The mother had never had any experience in dressing children, and it was a wonder that Bhe did not get the dress on wrong side up. But there she was. The mother wailed as ono who was parting with everything that was dear to her, the father lay and moaned look ing from Noi ah to the American. Time was up. The mother took the baby in her arms and gave it the final embraoo and the long, loving kiss, the father took her iu his arms and kised hor, and the other children looked on astounded, while the girl stood weeping. "Goodbye," said the American. "I will take good care of the baby," and taking her from the mother's arms he started for the door. There was a shriek, the woman darted to him just as he was dosing the door, and snatched the baby from his arms. "Drop the child!" said the father. "You can't have her for all the money there is in AmerikyV" "No, sor," ejaculated the mother, half way botween fainting and hysterics, "I can't part wid her I" And she commenced undressing the baby. "Take back your beautiful clothes give mo back the rags that was on her, but ye can't have the child." And the girl Bhe commenced undressing too, for she did not want to obtain clothes under false pretences, but the American stopped the disrobing. "Its bad for the ohild," he said, "but somehow I can't blame yon. Yon are welcome to the clothes, though." And he left as fast as he could, and I no ticed that he was busy with his handker chief about his eyes for some minutes. MOSB Y"o tfT WITTE D. Daring Hlmitelf, He Wan Put to IIIUNII by a iii-llllaiit Yiuikuo'g Dash. J. Esten Cooke, in the Philadelphia Weekly Times, says: Mosby was seldom defeated, and never outwitted to my knowl edge but once. The incident has never been in print, I believe, and I am assured that the partisan never related it, it was so very mortifying. It is a trifle, but may amuse the reader. Colonel Mosby had crossed the mountains with a few men into Clarke county, when he was informed that a Fed eral officer with a squad of cavalrymen was in the vicinity. The officer had stopped at "Clay Hill," the residence of Mr. Whiting, and Mosby made up his mind to capture officer and men. His action was prompt, as usual. He went to Clay Hill, captured the Federal officer while he wa3 seated at supper, and carried him oil prisoner to Up perville, east of the Bine Ridge. There had been nothing at all unpleasant abont the whole affair. Mosby and his prisoner were on the most friendly terms. The partisan bad ridden his favorite gray mare on the scout, and at Upperville was standing be side her ready tj mount, when the Federal officer said: "That's a superb animal, Colonel." "Yes" was the gratified reply of the par tisan as he patted the mare's neck. The officer sauntered closer. "A very fine animal!" And throwing himself into the saddle he disappeared at full speed, and Colenel Mosby never again saw his favorite gray mare or his prisouei. FovertjT and Distress. That poverty which is of the greatest dis tress is not of the purse but of the blood. Deprived of its richness it becomes scant and watery, a condition termed anemia in medical writings. Given this condition, and scrofulous swellings and sores, general and nervous debility, loss of flesh and ap petite, weak lungs, throat disease, spitting of blood and consumption, are among the common results. If yon are a sufferer from thin, poor blood employ Dr. Pierce's "Golden Medical Discovery," which enrich es the blood and cures these grave affec tion ).

Paul fioyton, in an interview with a news paper correspondent at the seashore, relat ed the following inoiilents in his experi ence: Reporter.—"Captain Boyton, you most have seen large part of the world?" Capt. Boyton.—"Yes, sir, by the aid of my Itubber Life Saving Dress, I have trav eled over 10,000 miles on the rivers of America and Europe have also been pre sented to the crowned heads of England, France, Germany, Austria, Belgium, Italy, Holland, Spain and Portugal, and have in my possession forty-two medals and deoo raiions I have three times received th order of bjnighthood, and been elected honoray member of committees, clubs, or ders and societies." Reporter.—"Wero your various trips ao coin ponied by much danger?" Capt. Boyton.—"That depends upon what you may call dangerous. During my trip down the river Tague in Spain I had to "shoot" one hundred and two water falls, the highest being about eighty-five feet, and innumerable rapids. Crossing the Straits of Messina, I had three ribs broken in a fight with sharks and coming down the Souiane, a river in France, I re ceived a charge of shot from an excited and startled huntsman. Although all this was not vory pleasant and might be termed dangerous, I fear nothing more on my trip than intense cold for, as long as my limbs are free and easy, and not oramped or benumbed, I am all right. Of late I carry a stock of St. Jacobs Oil in my little boat,—(the Captain calls it "Baby Mine," and has stored therein signal rock* ets, thermometer, compass, provisions, eto) —nnd I have had but little trouble. Before starting oat I rub myself thoroughly with the article, and its action on the muscles is wonderful. From constant exposure I am somewhat subjoct to rheumatio pains, and nothing would ever benefit me, until I got hold of thiB Great German Remedy. Why, on my travels I have met people who had been suffering with rheumatism for yeais by my advice they tried the Oil, and it cured them. I would sooner do without food for days than be without this remedy for one hour. In fact I would not attempt a trip without it." The captniu became very enthusiasts on the subject of St. Jacobs oil, and we left him citing instances of the curative quali ties of the Great German Bemedy to a par ty fuound him.
