Better than Cremation. Cremation
way be all very well, but a French
chemist has found a better way. By
some process he has condensed the body
of his wife into the space of an ordinary
seal, and had her highly polished and
pet in a ring. He made a nice income
by betting, with lapidaries and 'others,
they conld not tell the material of the
Bet in three guesses, and, after pocket
ing the money, would burst into tears,
and say: " It is my dear, dead wife. I
wear her on my finger to keep alive
pleasant remembrances of her."
A Doctor ox SpiRnr;Ai,TSM. Of all
mental ailments none seem to yield to
treatment so reluctantly as spiritualism.
I have watched many cases of genuine
spiritualism, but do not remember to
have seen a chronic ciaf permanently
cured. I have seen typical cases pass
regularly through their successive
stages and terminate in open insanity,
and have never been able to mitigate
the svmptoms or avert the result. Spir
itualism is the most uncompromising
complaint with which the psychologist
is called to meet. No epidemic of mod
ern times can compare with it. It is a
delusion which has existed 2- years, and
attracted in the United States alone,
nearly three millions of people. The
last census informs us that there are in
the republic 24,000 insane, setting aside
idiots; and it is believed that out of this
number 7-jOO cases may be traced di
rectly to spiritualism. The delusion
does not appear to be decreasing,
though fortun-itely its victims are now
almost altogether from the vulgar and
illiterate classes, and scientific men do
not seem to be liable to the contagion.
Transfi'siov of Blood. The Cliica
go me-Iical professors have been exper
imenting with the transfusion of blood,
for the benefit of their students. On
account of the danger, in the old mode
of direct transfusion, of carrying air in
clotted blood into the vein, which is fa
tal, the instrument of Mr. McDonald
was used, by which the blood is dt li
brated by beating with a stick before it
is put iuto the tube for icjection into
the vein, the red corpuscles containing
the life only remaining. The blood
having Iwon transferred to the tube,
the tube ia then held upright and in
herted into the vein of the recipient.
The blood fls in naturally, and no
air or clot is admitted. The experi
ments were made with a largo dog, who
was brought iuto the hall and chloro
forms! for use. The first was to show
the pressure of blood in the arteries.
Au nrtery was o)ened and a tube in
serted. The bhvd mounted in the tube
to the height of over six feet, and rose
and fell with the pnlsations. The ani
mal was then subjected to a drain of
blood until respiration ceased, and he
was apparently a dead dog. A prick of a
needle iiotwe.-n the toes, where a dog's
keenest sansibilities are, failed to pro
duce any responsive movement. In the
meantimo the blood had been prepared.
and the instrument was adjusted to
pruvo tli process. V lien tuo dog had
received hack four ounces of his blood
he kicked. Twenty ounces made him
quite livelv and wagged his tail. When
ho got up, in about five mi ntes after
he liegan to get back his life-current.
and began to eat mrat with a ravenous
appetite, he was cheered as a success.
Scientific Mkn Scientifically Sxrie-
iko. Francis Galton, well known for
his researches in regard to hereditary
mental powers, has been pursuing these
stiiilies. He made personal inquiries of
ISO leading scientific men of the dav.
and their replies based his conclu
sions. Most important was the almost
persistent combination of remarkable
energy of body with remarkablo ener
gy of mind. Size of head was consid
ered, and, as a general rule, was larger
than of ordinary gentlemen. Still, re
markably, manv scientific men had
small heads, and the small heads were
remarkable for activity. Health was
a marked feature. Independence of
ppirit and tenacity of purimse were al
so most marked characteristics of men
of science, and notably a largo propor
tion were men of business, as principals
of large commercial er mercantile con
cerns. The great incentive to science
Feemed, to the author, to be, innate taste,
and in character ho regarded the scien
tific mind as anti-feminine. As to he
reditaries, that of health seemed most
essentially due to parentage ; and on
the parental side the influences of qual
ities was apparently on the father sside,
in the projKirticn of 128 to 4. on the
mother s side. A combination of all es
sential qualities seemed necessary to
t lie production of a man of mark, and
that the laws of chnnct s and al tenia
tires came in to give actuality to re
mits. In regard to education, the gen
eral condition seem' d to be that they
were not tied down iu their studies to
particular subjects, but were given to
the investigation of many.

child in the great crowd that gathers in
our schools in in some respects like a
particular musical instrument, designed
by (.h1 in its complicated mechanism
to perform its particular part, to yield
its own particular tone in the diapason
of life; and I shudder when I think
how rudely it is often played upon by
untaught teachers teachers who have
drifted to their work, or resorted to it
as'a temporary occupation, for its profits,
but who have never thought of study
ing its principles as physicians, lawyer.-5,

fessions. IMayed upon by the unskill
ful hands of those who have never
troubled themselves to study the physi
cal, much less the psychic, delicacy of
this wonderful human instrument, the
only wonder is that society should yield
the harmonies it does. No ! women
need to think more, not less ; to in
crease, not diminish, brain-work; to
over-live the drudgery of it, whether it
it involve teaching, writing, ptudy, the
work of a profession, or home-work, by
breathing into it the living spirit of

It is rather singular that in the many
articles written recently on the subject
of cremation no account has been given
of the most notable instance of burn
ing tne dead in m dern times. We re
fer to the burning of the body of the
rioet. Percy Bysshe Shelley, on the
shore of the Mediterranean in the sum
mer of 1822, in the presence of Lord
Byron, Mr. Leigh iiunt and Mr. tu. J.
Trelawny. Shelley, like Byron, was
passionately fond of the sea, and loved
to talk of ships and sailors and of the
adventures of the early navigators in
their small craft, hile in Leghorn
he would visit the vessels of all nations,
and take notes of their shapj, build,
rigging and decoration. His friend,
Lieut. E. E. Williams, a half-pay officer
of the eighth dragroons, recently from
India, was Ins constant companion a
genial man, fond of books and the sea.
His family occupied the same he use
with Shelley, on the Gulf of Spezzia.
After much talking and planning,
Villiams, who had been three years in
the navy, assisted Shelley in building a
boat, according to his own cherished
model, which the happy owner chris
tened the "Don Juan." She vras fast
and strong, but it took two tons of iron
ballast to bring her down to her bear
ings, and the Genoese sailors considered
her a ticklish craft to manage. It was
pleasant to lebold Shelley's boyish
eagerness at the possession of this new
toy, anticipating never-failing pleasure
in gliding over the blue sea, beneath
the cloudless sky of au Italian summer.
Shelley and Williams were in ecstasies
over their boat, and were hardly ever
out of her. Their only assistant was a
boy, quick and handy and used to boats.
Trelawny advised them to add to their
crow a Genoese sailor accustomed to the
coast, such an one as he had on Lord
Byron's boat, the Bolivar, but thinking
their seamansti p scandalized, they re
pelled the suggestion, 'loward the end
of June, 1822, Leigh Hunt and his
fninily arnved by sea from England
Hunt aticipated great literary, projects
in conjunction with Byron and Shelley,
an l the pleasure which surpassed all
the rest was of meeting and commun
ing with his friend, Shelley. Alas ! for
the brevity of their union.
On the 8th of Julv, 1822, Shelley and
his friend Williams left Leghorn in the
Don Juan, to go to Spezzia, where their
families awaited them. Trelawny ac
companied them to the offing in the
Bolivar. They were fretting and fum
ing to bo off; it was getting late, and
there was very little wind. Trelawny
watched the progress of his friends'
boat through a glass, while his Genoese
mate observed : " They should have
sailed this morning ; they are standing
too much in shore ; the current will set
in there." "But," said Trelawny,
" they will soon have a land breeze."
"Their gaff topsail," continued the
mate, " is foolish in a boat with no
deck, and no sailor on board." Then,
pointing to the south-west, "Look at
those black lines, and the dirty rags
hanging on them ont of the Bky they
are a warning. Look at the smoke on
the water the devil is brewing mis
chief." Shelley's boat was soon after
enveloped in a sea-fog, and was never
seen again. A furious storm ensued ;
when it abated Trelawny watched every
speck that loomed on the horizon, but
in vain ; the boat had gone down with
its precious freight.
After three days of horrible suspense
Trelawny rode to Pisa and told his fears
to Byron and Hunt. On the third day
two bodies were found on the shore
one at Via Reggio, the other three miles
distant. The tall, slight figure, the
jacket, the volume of Sophocles iu one
jiocket and Keats' poems in tbe other,
doubled back as if just read, were suf
ficient to identify the lody of the poet;
the other was identified as the body of
Williams. They were immediately
buried in the sand beyond the reach of
It then became the melancholy duty
of Trelawny to carry the sad news to
the lone house on the sea shore where
the widows of his deceased companions
lived. Mary, the wife of Shelly, was
the daughter of William Godwin and
Mary Woolstonecraft, and herself a
woman of genius ; Jane, the lovely
widow of Lieut. Wi.liams. had just re
turned from India. These young moth
ers were left by their husbands on a
veranda, singing merry tunes to the
guitar, the happiest and most united of
families. It was now determined by
those most interested that Shelley's re
mains should be removed t i Rome, and
laid beside his child and his friend
Keats, while those of Williams should
bo taken to England.
To do this in their then far advanced
state of decomposition was almost im
possible, aud the ancient custom of
burning and reducing the bodies to
ashes was resorted to. The Lncohese and
Florentine governments having granted
the request mr de by the British legation
"to be allowed to remove the mortal
remiins of Mr. Shelley and his com
panion, cast ashore by the waves of the
sea,"'Mr. Trelawny caused a furnace to
be made in Leghorn of strong sheet
iron, with iron bands around it, and
also collected such articles as Shelley's
much loved Hellenese used on their
An officer of the quarantine, with a
squad of soldiers, accompanied the expe
dition, armed with long-handled tongs,
nippers, poles with iron hooks, and di
vers other implements. Lord Byron
and Mr. Hunt joined them on the beach,
with the health officer and some dis
mounted dragoons. There was also a
considerable gathering of spectators
f roi the neighborhood, and among them
many ladies richly dressed. A morbid
curiosity drew most of these, but it is
almost beyond belief that personal
friends, men of birth, culture and gen
tle breeding, could have witnessed the
scene which followed. -We copy Tre
lawny's account :
On the removal of a layer of brush
wood all that remained of our friend
Williams was exposed a shapeless
mass ; the head hal fallen from the
trunk on being touched. " Is that a
human body?" exclaimed Byron.
" Why, it's more like tbe carcass of a
sheep or any other animal ; this is a
satire on human pride and folly," and
he pointed to the letters E. W. W. on
the black handkerchief tied sailor fash
ion which had fallen with the head.
Bymn looked on and muttered, " The
eutr.iils of a worm hold together longer
than the potters clay of which man is
The remains were removed piecemeal
into the furnace. "Don't repeat this
with me," said Bvron ; " let my carcass
rot where it falls." The funeral pyre
was now ready. The materials being
dry and resinous burned furiously and
turned us back. As soon as the flamesbe
cini clear, and allowed ns to approach,
we threw frankincense and salt into the
fur Lace, and poured a flask of oil and
wine over the body. The Greek ora
tion was omitted, for we had lost our
Hellenic bard. It was now insuffera
bly hot, the officers and soldiers seek
ing shade from the effects of the fire
and the sun. " Let ns try the strength
of these waters that drowned oar
friends," said Byron with his usual au
dacity. " How far do you think they
were out when their boat sank ? " "If
you don't wish to be put into the fur
nace you nan better not try ; you are
not in condition for a plunge." Byron
stripped and went into the water, but
soon returned sick and cramped.
At four o'clock the funeral pyre
burned low, and when we uncovered
the furnace nothiccr remained in it but
dark-colored ashes, with fragments of
the larger bones. Poles were now put
under the reJ-hot furnace, and it wss
gradually cooled in the sea. I gathered
together the human ashes and placed
them in a small oak box bearing an in
scription on a brass plate, screwed it
down and placed it in Byron's carriage.
He returned with Hunt to Pisa, promis
ing to join us the following day at Via
Reggio. The next morning we went to
Via Reggio with the same party and
things, and began onr preparations. In
the meantime Byron and Leigh Hunt
arrived, attended by the health officer
and soldiers as before. The lonely and
grand scenery that surrounded ns har
monized so exactly with Shelley's gen
ius that I could imagine his spirit soar
ing above us. As I thought of the de
light Shelley had in scenes of such
loneliness and grandeur, I thought we
were no better than a herd of wolves or
a pack of wild dogs, in tearing out his
battered and naked body frem the pure
and yellow sand that lay so lightly (mr
it, to drag him back to the light of day;
but the dead have no voice, and the
work went on silently in the deep and
unresisting sand. The Italians showed
a touch of seuMment and sympathy, and
even Byron wai silent and thoughtful.
How to Kill Off Presidential Aspi
Only six of the presidents of the Uni
ted States ever had seats in the cabinet,
namely, Thomas Jefferson, James Madi
son, James Monroe, John Quincy Ad
ams, Martin Van Buren, and James
Buchanan ; and all those six held the
office of secretary of state. Mr. Monroe
was the only one of the number who
ever held any cabinet office, he being
secretary of war in 1814-15, because
there was little or nothing for hira to do
in the state department, and it was ne
cessary to kill off General John Arm
strong, not because he had been at the
head of the war department at the time
the British took possession of the vi -lage
of Washington, but because he,
being a New Yorker, had presidential
pretentions, that were working against
Mr. Monroe's "claims" to "the succes
sion." Mr. Crawford, who was, first,
secretary of war, and then secretary of
the treasury, could not get a presiden
tial nomination in 1816, nor a presiden
tial election in 1824-25. Henry Clay
went into the state department, and
there smothered himself, or rather his
presidential hopes. Mr. Calheun was
the best secretary of war that the coun
try ever had, and later he was secretary
of state ; but he never could get into
the presidency, though he longed for it
most ardently, and sought it as eaperly
as it was sought by Mr. Clay. Mr. Web
ster went into the cabinet twice, in the
hope of passing thence to the presiden
tial chair, but failed on both occasions.
How completely poor oil Cass expended
himself, we all know, and yet he made
a very good secretary of war, and a
tilerably respectable secretary of state,
considering Louis McLane, of Dela
ware, who was, successively, secretary
of the treasury and secretary of state,
had presidential aspirations, but never
could get any support' Judge Wood
bury, who had been secretary of the
navy and secretary of the treasury,
probably would have been made presi
dent in 1802-53, but that death cut
short a most promising career. Chief
Justice Chase, who was half crazy for
the presidency, and never got it. had
been secretary of the treasury. Secre
tary of War Stanton had presidential
prospects, but he died before they cou'd
ripen, if they had a ripening capacity.
So it would seem to be the part of pru
dence in politicians to keep ont of the
cabinet, if they xpect to get into the
white house, and what American does
not expect to reside in that uneligible
mansion, or is not expected to reside in
it by his mother or his wife, his sister
or his cousin, his daughter or his aunt,
his sweet-heart or his grandmother ?
Gardens of the Olden Time.
A writer on life in this country in the
last century, says : " The present gen
eration is scarcely aware of how little
their forefathers knew of many vege
tables, fruits, and flowers which are
now seen to be so abundant. These
have been successfully increased among
ns by so many gardeners, florists, etc.
Tomatoes, orchra, and artichokes were
first encouraged by the French emi
grants, and had but very slow favor
from ourselves. Afterwards came in
cauliflowers, head salad, egg plants,
oyster plants, canteleupes, mercer, and
foxite potatoes, rhubarbs, sweet corn,
etc. The seed of the canteleupe was
brought to this country from Tripoli,
and distributed by Col. James Barron.
Formerly wo had only a few fox and
other grapes ; we have since several for
eign varieties, and have discovered aud
propagated among ourselves the Cataw
ba and Isabella. Once we had only one
sort of small stiawbtrries, and now we
have many kinds and large. We had
only the small blue plum, and now we
have them and gages of great size. We
have greater varieties of pears, peaches,
apiicots, and apples. The peaches were
wholly unmolested by the worms. Our
former garden flowers and shrubberies
were confined to lilacs, rosep, snow
balls, lilies, Thinks, and some tnlips.
The Jerusalem cherry was a plant once
most admired, and now scarcely seen.
Now we have greatly increased our gar
den embellishments by such new things
as altheas, seringas, cocoras, geraniums,
verbenas, and numerous new varieties
of roses, including champigneas and
cluster roses, with many new beauties
in the class of tulips and other bulbous
roots. In olden time, the small flower
tied stood ' solitary and alone,' in most
family gardenp, and sunflowers, and
gay and rank hollyhocks and other an
nual production", "were the chief articles
for a greater display. Morning glories
aud the gourd vine were the annual de
pendence for cases of required shade."
Inopportune No. 1.
A correspondent ot the Indianapolis
Sentinel writes : " Among the rest one
lady well known in New York society
has recently gone the way of all the liv
ing. Her life was a somewhat varied
one, and now that it is ended I am for
cibly reminded of a story connected
with the death of her first husband.
That gentleman had, it seemp, lost his
health in some manner, and as the way
is now and was then he went abroad,
hoping to regain it. From land to lanl
he journeyed till he died in some far-off
country I et us say New South Wales
and the tidings of his decease were sent
to his sorrowing partner, together with
the information that" his body had been
preserved in a cask of rum, and was held
sabiect to her order. She at once wrote,
requesting that it be forwarded to her

JOHN AT SALT LAKE.
A Humorous Description ot the City ot
It is just two days' ran from San
Francisco to Salt Lake City, but if you
should personally unelertake to run in
two days', you'd find it takes two weeks
that's on foot. They manipulate pic
torial pasteboard on the cars. The
game requires only three cards. You
bet on the jack, and youH find that you
turn up a jack a jackass. In playing
this game, the rule that applies to Na
poleon on the white horse, " You pays
your money and you takes your choice,"
is reversed, and you takes your choice
and ays your money.
To get to Salt Lake City, you leave
the Union Pacific at OgJen, and take the
Utah Central railroad, and then take a
drink, and then you ride thirty-eight
miles, and there you are.
Salt Lake City has a population of
about 22,000. The first party of pros
pectors, less than 200 in number, and
headed by Briaham Young, reached
here in 1847. Five hundred more ar
rived the following year. The city is
laid out in squares, formed by very
broad streets. It has several good ho
tels. The Tabernacle is the biggest meeting
house I ever got inside of. It is just
the shape of a wire butter cover. It
will hold over 13.000 people. Prairie
schooners used to be plenty in this sec
tion, but only one brig has ever arrived
at this port, and that is Brig-ham. He
is the boss of the town. It takes a big
piece o calico to dress his wife. There
is a sectijn of this country known as
the Banana Belt, and that is the only
belt long enough to go around Mrs.
Brigham Young all at once. He must
keep a ten-horse power, donkey engine
to mix hash for his famiiy. How a don
dey engine can be horse power I be
queath to your readers as a rebus for
them to solve.
The city is situated in the loveliest
valley I ever saw, overshadowed by the
W. hsatch range of mountains, their
peaks visible, capped with snow the
year around. The climate is wonder
fully mild. About two miles fiom the
center of the city, and owned by it, is a
warm sulphur spring. Swimming
bath houses have been erected, and a
swim in that sulphur water is a positive
luxury. Still further out from the city
are the hot springs. An egg will cook
in the water in four minutes. So will
two eggs. Uncle Samuel has a military
camp near the city. There is one very
large business house here. It is called
Zion's Co-operative Met can tile Institu
tion. Salt Lake is some miles from the city.
I visited it. The name is apropos.
It isn't necessary to embalm a man to
make him keep if he has ever been
soaked in that water. One teaspoonful
once a day taken internally would turn
a man into corn beef in less than a
week. Mashed potatoes dropped into
the lake come up codfish balls inside of
three minutes, and an old boot leg be
comes a mackerel in two hours. Three
barrels of water make one barrel of salt
that is accordina to chemical analysis.
My judgment, unsupported, would lead
me to suppose, from tasting it, that one
barrel of water would make three
barrels of salt. Its buoyancv is re
markable. Mr. B of Z. C.
M. institution says that he has
walked out into that lake until
he has had fifty feet of water under
him, and he sank only to his waist.
Mr. B also informed me that in dis
robing he accidently dropped his stock
ings ; he walked out into the lake, sat
down, made a clothes line of his toes,
hung his stockings on 'em, aDd sat there
till they dried. I remarked, that must
have been when he was a buoy ; but he

He was in there eating some cooked
meats the other day. when two anti
crusaders entered. They walked up to
the bar and exclaimed, " Give us a
couple." "A couple of what?" says
the barkeeper. " A couple of George
and Joes," was the reply. " Why, gen
tlemen," says the barkeeper, "Georee
and Joe is the name of the firm." " My
gracious !" says one of the fellows,
" you don't told me so ; gad I knew
Tom and Jerry was a beverage, a; d
hang me if I didn't think George and
Joe was a new drink."
Sagacity of Birds in Choosing their
The sagacity of birds in choosing as
sites for their nests localities where
they will be secure against the attacks
of their enemies is well illustrated by
several examples given by Mr. Belt.
" On the savannahs," says he, "between
Acoyapo and Nancital, there is a shrub,
with sharp curved prickles, called Vicna
paraca (come here) by the Spaniards,
because it is difficult to extricate oneself
from its hold when the d ess is caught ;
as one part ia cleared another will be
entangled. A yellow and brown fly
catcher builds its nest in these bushes,
and generally places it alongside that of
a banded wasp, so that with the prickles
and the wasps it is well guarded." The
author, however, witnessed the death of
one of the birds from the very means it
hfcd chosen for the protection of is
yonng. Darting hurriedly out of its
domed nest, it was caught just under its
bill by one of the curved, hook-like
thwrns, and tiying to extricate itself got
further entangled. Its fluttering dis
turbed the wasps, who flew down upon
it, and in less than a minute f-tung it to
The different species of orioles of
tropical America choose high, smooth
barked trees, standing apart from
others, from whieh to hang their pen
dulous nests. MonKeys cannot get at
them from the tops of other trees, and
any predatory mammal attempting to
ascend the smooth trunks would be
greatly exposed to the attacks of the
birds, armed as they are with strong,
sharp-pointed beaks. A small parrot
builds constantly on the plains, m a
hole made in the nests of the termites
and several other birds hang their nests
from the extremities of the branches of
the bull's-horn thorn.
A New Fabric.
An improved or rather newly-invented
felted fabric has been brought to great
perfection by English manufacturers.
In London it sells at prices which make
it tbe rival of woven fabrics for curtains,
upholstery, book-binding and similar
purposes. It can be made to imitate
the solidity of Cordova leather, the
rich brocaded silks of Lyons, the ele
gant cretonnes, Mulhouse, the purity
and gloss of damask linen, and the mag
nificent paper of China and Japan. It
is, in fact, a species of Japanese paper.
It is as durable as any woven fabric, is
impermeable, light and warm, and par
ticularly applicable for curtains and
quilts, and needs no washing. Its colors
never fade, and it is so cheap that ele
gant curtaius three yards long, ready
made with bands, sewn and lined, range
in price from a dollar to five dollars the
pair. It has not yet been manufactured
in sufficient quantity to meet the home
demand, and therefore it is not yet in
the American market.
Tie Dreaded Sound.
The fact that hissing is reckoned le
gitimate at the theatres has led men to
choose them as the place for expressing
their public dislikes in times of great
excitement. Shakspeare's Cardinal Wol
sey was hissed at the. time of the papal
aggression, but the hiss was not meant
for the actor but for Cardinal Wiseman.
Hisses are directed at unpopular persons
who come as spectators, and not as ac
tors. Sir William Knighton says that
George VL always entered the theatre
with an excessive dread of being saluted
with this mark of nnblie disapprobation.
If he heard one single hiss, although it
were immediately drowned in general
and tumultuous applause, be went home
wretched, and would lie awake alljright
thinking of that one ugly note, and not
of the thousand agreeable ones.
What t e Ancients Knew About thla
The plow is, war excellence, the em
blem of agriculture, and its history,
both authentic and mythological, pos
sesses a peculiar interest. The period
at which man first began to comminute
the sou for the purpose of making it
produce sustenance for himself and his
flocks is so remote as to be lest in the
obscurity of the past ; but that it was
at an early period is clear. It is also
generally admitted that the ox and cow
were in this age used as native farmers,
and it is asserted that men and women
captured in war and reduced to slavery
were employed in this way before the ox
was trained or the cow became accus
tomed to the yoke ; for war, and its
offspring, slavery, are older than agri
culture. The earliest plow was a pointed stick,
which the primitive man used to break
up the soil. jThis was a slow and labo
rious process, and one day the thought
came to one wiser than his fellows that
the forked limb of a tree might be made
efficient for this purpose. Acting upon
this thought, he formed a plow by cut
ting a forked limb from a. tree and
sb rpening one of the prongs, so that it
would penetrate the soil. It took two
persons to use this implement one to
draw it, which he did by a bark or raw
hide trace, and one to hold and push it
into the ground. This, the first plow,
proved a great success, and was fo ar
while thought to be the ne plus ultra
of improvement in that line. In the
course of time, however, some inge
nious laborer began to question the per
fection of this' implement, and finding a
limb of somewhat different shape, he
constructed au improved plow. Tke
fogies shook their heads and muttered
"humbug, bnt the progressive men
adopted it, and it ultimately superseded
the earlier devices. Ages went by be
ore the forked stick plow was succeeded
by another, composed of several pieces of
wood held together by mortises and
pins. This was improved from time to
time, untillit approached as near perfec
tion as it was possible for a plow com
posed wholly of wood.
The Romans were probably the first
to use iron in the construction of the
plow. The plow that Cincinnatus fol
lowed was a rude affair, with no irou in
it except the point and share. The
Greeks have a myth which is interest
ing in this connection. Prosperine, a
daughter of Ceres (goddess of agricul
ture), was abducted by Pluto while she
was in the forest gathering flowers, and
was installed as queen of the lower re
gions. Ceres, inconsolable at the loss
of her daughter, wholly neglected the
agricultural interests in her search for
the missing goddess. The result was
that tho whole earth eventually became
a barren -waste. Jupiter and tho other
gods implored her to return to Olympus
and resume her duties as guardian of
agriculture, but in vain. She could
think of nothing except her lost daugh
ter. Jupiter now visited Pluto and
peisuaded him to permit Prosperine to
revisit the earth nd remain eight
months each year, and then return and
tpend tho other four with him. Ceres
consented to this arrangement, and at
once returned to Olympus. Before
goiDg, however, sho instructed Tripto
lemus of Eleusis in the art of agricul
ture, and giviDg him her own chariot,
drawn by dragons, commanded him to
travel over the whole earth and distrib
ute seed corn to its inhabitants. Trip
tolemus was the inventor of the plow.
The Greeks held two feasts a y. ar in his
honor, one on account of the distribu
tion of seed and the other because he
invented the plow, without which the
seed would have been of little use.
Little imprevement seems to have
been made in the plow used by the
Greeks and Bomai st'oover two thou
sand years, and indeed it was a most
clumsy affair, as recently as fifty years
ago being only a wedge, clearing the
soil and compressing the subsoil.
It may be predicted that before many
y;ars, some Yankee Triptolemus will
revolutionize the plo v by constructing
one that shall combine the functions of
both the plow and the harrow, and pos
sibly other and valuable adjuncts not
now anticipated. With all due respect
to the great plowmakers, it must be ad
mitted that the mechanical idea em
bodied in the plow as now constructed
is imperfect, and it is time this was re
cognized and correct principles incor
porated in its construction, that it might
meet the demands of this progressive
and utilitarian age. Some attempts in
this direction have already been made,
but they, like all first attempts to em
body a new idea, have been only par
tially successful. It is a recognized
axiom of modern times, that " Ameri
can genius and perseverance know no
eueh word as failure," and it is confi
dently expected that success in this de
partment of mechanical invention will
ooa be achieved.
Tobacco Smoke Good for the Teeth.
It is only fair on tobacco to point out
that it is gradually clearing itself from
many of the serious charges brought
against it. It has been frequently and
persistently alleged that among other
ill effects (beside death and madness)
produced by tobacco is destruction of
the teeth. This, it appears, is entirely
a mistake. Instead of tobacco causing
the teeth to decay, it is the very best
thing in the world for them, and those
who wish to preserve their teeth should
immediately take to pmoking, if they
have not already indulged in the habit.
At a lecture on teeth, laughiDg gas, and
electricity, as connected with the dental
surgery, delivered last month in Lon
dou by Thomas Brown, the lecturer ob
served that it was popularly considered
that the practice of smoking deteriora
ted the teeth. " There cauld," he add
ed, " be no greater fallacy. It was
true that it sometimes discolored the
teeth, but it did not cause decay ; on
the contrary, it prevented decav on ac
count of the disinfectant properties of
tobacco smoke. This leaves the Urit-
ish Anti-Tobacco Association and other
kindred bodies in a very disagreeable
position, for it destroys all confidence
in the awful predictions they are in the
habit of uttering a to the late of smok
ers. If tobacco does n t injure the
tetth, but is in fact good for them, per
haps it does not shorten life, but is fa
vorable to longevity.

The lawyers of Indianapolis areyto-
turing their brains over an extraordinarr
problem. Some years ago a lady of
that city was married, and four months
thereafter separated from her husband,
was divorced and remarried in a month,
and four months thereafter gave birth
to a child by her first husband. Quite
recently the second husband procured a
divorce, and the custody of the child
was awarded to him. Now comes tbe
first husband and claims the child. Who
is entitled to its possession ?
A Grange Conundrum.
There is already a little dissension
among the Grangers. Some of "the
embattled farmers" want to know
where all the money goes which is paid
into the grange treasnries. There are
12,000 granges, it is urged, in exist
ence, with an average of fifty members
each, and $2,500,000, it is estimated,
have been paid in initiation fees and
dues. " What, has become of all this
cash? Who is enriching himself by
his grangeship?" are questions which
the curious are beginning to ask. It is
not a point upon which we can give
any information. Perhaps the esti
mates are too high.JVr. Y. Tribune.
Let tjs Consider. Since the intro
duction of distilled spirits in the six
teenth century, they have been habitu
ally prescribed as remedies. We know
that alcohol, in all its forms, is perni
cious to health. Knowing these things
and that under the system of treatment
which inclndes their use, tho mortality
among the sick is, and ever h s been,
enormous, is it not worth while to try
the effect of a remedy which combines
in their highest excellence the qualities
of a Tonic, an Alterative and a Regula
tor ; contains no mineral bane or mur
derous alkaloid or alcoholic poison ;
does its curative office without pain and
with uniform certainty ? Dr. Walker's
Vinegar Bitters fulfills all these condi
tions, and is now effecting the most ex
traordinary cures, in cases where every
specific of the faculty has ignominious
ly failed. Consider, in view of these
facts, whether any sick person is justi
fied by reason and common sense in de
clining to test tbe virtues of this unde
fined and irresistible remedy.
Means What he Says.
Though "confirmation strong as proofs of
HoK Writ " and as numerous as tho gauds on
the sua shore, were produced to prove that the
proprietors of Dr. Sasre's Catarrh Remedy is
in tamest, and means what he says, when he
offers $500 reward for any case of Catarrh
wh'ch he cannot cure, yet there wonldbe totne
skeptics and old fogies who would continue to
shout "humbug!" " humbug ! ! " '"It cannot
be, because Dr. Homespun says catarrh c nnot
be cured." Now, this Dr. Homespun is the
identical, good natured old fellow, who hon
estly believes and persists in declaring that
this earth is not round or spherical, bat as flat
as a " slay-jack," and does not turn over,
otherwise tbe water would all be spilled out of
Deacon Baecom's mill pond. But astronomical
science has positively demonstrated and pro
ven that Dr. Homespun is wrong in snnporing
the earth to be flat and stationary, and medi
cal science is daily proving the fact that he is
no less mistaken and behind the times in re
gard to the curability of catarrh ; in abort,
it has been positively proven that this
worTd moves, and that medical science is pro
gressive the opinion of Dr. Homespun to the
contrary notnithstanding. Tliat Dr. Sage's
Catarrh Remedy will cure catarrh, thout-a:ids
