A sweet younr lady of the West End,
who has evidently been giving the sub
ject serious reflection, gives the follow

chances of marriage between the ages
of 1 1 and 40 years.
Of 1,W0 women, taken without selec
tion, it is found that the number mar
ried at each age is as below.- Or if (by
an arithmetical license) we call a wom
an's chances of marriage in the
whole course of her life 1,000, her
chances in each two years will be shown
in the table:
We hardly think it a fair thing for
our lady friend to stop at the age of :!0,
as there are very few ladies who have
arrived at that age of single-blessedness,
from whoso hearts have been ex
tinguished hopes of ever seeing the
chosen one. No, indeed, so long as
there is still an old bachelor left, we
say give the old maids a chance, and
don't blame them for still clinging to
hope. Cincinnati Enquirer. -

A few days since a poor woman came
here with three little children. She had
neither friends nor money, and one
baby was ill. She was anxious to get
to a brother in Idaho, but the task
seemed a hopeless one. She concluded
to give a lecture which should consist
simply of the patnetic story of her
struggle to take care of her little ones
She called upon one gentleman in this
city and asked him to buy a ticket. He
said: " My poor woman, go on with
your lecture, and after it is over come
and see . me again." Yesterday she
oabed again, - nn 11 asked iter how
much she lacked to enable her to reach
her friends. She told him. It was a
pretty large sum, but the man imme
diately drew a check for enough and
more than the amount named to guard
against accident, and told the woman
gently that if she was detained or gf t
in trouble on the road to write to hiu-.
The woman told us all this w'-th tears
in her eyes, and said he was an angel.
He would not do for a ready-made angil
without some repairs, but it was a good
deed, and we fancy he slept better fur'

The tragedy which has just been en

the 1'alace of the Tulips, where the ex-

in the reader a desire to learn something
more than he already knows relative to

though written from a pro-Turkish

fair idea of it. ' He says that it would

to' defend the llassulniaa in corui

The first is that the'prOvnleut belief in

I although polygamy is not prohibited by

the rale, !r.d that, as a matter of fact, i
the instances of doubhj t'tigt,s are

not think that any rational man would
for a moment hesitate.
However innocent the Turkish wo

she U absolutely supreme. The cere
monial and etiquette observtd within
its walls wrmld, I f.iiicy, rather astonish
the flippant critics of the institution.
The deference, especially, which is paid
to the mother has no parallel in the
West. The Sultan himself does not
dream of sitting down without leave in
the presence of the Yalideh Sultan. Cer
tain institutions sanctioned and hallow
ed in th6 West would be absolutely in
conceivable' to a' Turk ; such for in
stance as the widoviuother quiltingthe
home and abdicating her position in
favor of the son's wife. This would ap
pear to him an act of Itse-nature. So
would other institutions and laws, the
tory of our age such as the provisions
ol the Code Napoleon, which enjoin the
compulsory division of a man's prop
ty among all his children ; and univer
sal Funrage, as contradistinguished
from household or domestic suffrage.
For both these institutions would ap
pear incompatible with parent alauthor
ity, and in direct conflict with his do
mestic .instincts, which are at the root
of hs whole character, and upon which
reposes the whole fabric of Eastern "so
ciety. For the patriarchal character of
r THE Tl'UKISH HOME -
is its chief characteristic. Every morn
ing the household gather round their
head and respectfully kiss his hand
no empty formality with them, but
necessity and even indispensable token
in their eyes, of respectlul allegiance
In the household, too, arc included not
only the children, but those whom we
are obliged by the poverty of our lan
guage to designate as "slaves." No
where in 1 urkey is the precept of St.
I'aul so fully realized, " Ser
vants, be obedient to your masters,'
and " the son shall be even as a ser
vant." If, on the one hand, it be true
that the unit of the State is the family
and not the individual; on the other
hand, it may be said that the true idea
of the family only exists in the East,
ownere else, too, to people Jive so
continually iii the presence of eacl
other. A Roman once said, "Build
ine a house where 1 ahall be seen by
every one every hour in the day." This
is literally tne case in the Last. Living.
too, continually in the presence of each
other, their conduct is subject to and
influenced by the public opinion of
those around them in a way that no
European's can be. Two things are to
be seen in TurkeT which at lirst sight
may seem contradictory, but are in re-
ahty intimately connected tke entire
ABSENCE OF CAsTE,
ana tne instinctive aeierencc ana re
spect paid to every degree of rank
There is no such thing in Turkey as the
separation of classes, each living shut
up by itself, suspicious of each other,
like antagonistic and hostile forces;
mere is no sucu ining, tnereiore, as
class divisions, class hatreds, class in
terests, and the revolutionary passions
iney engenuer. t onsmer lor a mo
ment, when you talk so glibly of driv
ing the barbarians out of Europe, of
the strength which such a fact as this
gives to a Nation. I am inclined to
think, deliberately, that the only Na
tion in tne proper sense of the term
in Europe is the Ottoman. Now, what
renders this intermixture of all classes
in Turkey possible, and the absence of
which would render the same thing im
possible in Euroi-e, is exactly Turkish
politeness, formulated in a fixed codi
of politeness, which regulates the inter
course of the different classes with each
other, and renders impossible that
familiarity to which, but for this barrier,
such general intermixture would
be liable, and which would quickly dis-
solve it into general confusion and nni
tual contempt. If tins view is correct,
with such facts before our eyes it would
be very difficult to talk lightly of the
value oi politeness and etiquette. It is
not too much to say that the very bond
ot society inTurkev is respect; that po-
luciuss is wun iiiem uie cianorated
cone oi respect, ana mat tins re
siect and this code of politeness are
the lirst and most important lessons in
culcated in the harem. It takes first
the form of filial respect the source
and spring of all other respect- and
then, m natural progression of honor to
all those to whom honor is due. And so
it becomes the very basis and founda
tion of the Ottoman character, the
secret of their military discipline, and
the very bond of their society. . -,
Puriug all their tender years thiT chil
dren are brought up entirely in the
harem, and their education is '
INTRUSTED TO THE MOTHER.
- A marked distinction is observable
between Turkish children and European
children. The boisterous, rowdy, self
asserting child is absolutely unknown
in the East. He would be considered
a lustis iiaturit. In Europe children are
often told that they ought to be seen
but not heard, but it is only in the East
that this phenomenon is realized. Ke
spectfor his elders and a behavior com
patible with this respect which, in
fact, is the only form iu which that re
spect can be inculcated are the one
hrst great lesson which a Turkish child
has to learn. He soon learns it, for
every thi-ig around him ;s in harmany
with this injunction: respect is iu the
very air he breathes, and, unless there
are European children in the neighbor
hood, there is no fear of the opposite con
tagion. A fear of having their children
corrupted by the evil commuication of
Christian (but not because they are
Christian, rather because they are not
Christian) children is not the least pow
erful motive which prompts the Mus
sulman to pitch his dwelling rway from
their habitations. One indirect conse
quence of this mode of education is that
children in the East are remarkably ob
servants As they are not occupied in
jabbering,, they observe, ,,ud Jheir
naturally remarkable gifts in this re
spect are allowed full play: - It is for
this reason that you 4t ten -ee little ur
chins in the East helping their parents
in complicated domestic duties at an
a"e when their compeers m Europe are
kfeking their nurses and blowing their
trumpets in perambulators. . ; -

that the mean for the destruction "of

How the Ladies Fish.
There's generally about six of them
in the bunch (says an exchange) with
light dresses on, and they have three
poles with as many hooks and lines
! As soon as they get to the river they
look for a good place to get down on
the rafts, and the most venturesome
one sticks her boot heel in the bank and
makes two careful step-downs; then
she suddenly finds herself at the bottom
with both hands in the water and a feel
ing that every body in this wide world
is looking at her, and she never tells
any body how she got there. The other
girls, profiting by her example, turn
around and go down the bank on their
hands and toes, backwards. :
Then they scamper over the rafts
until they find a shallow place where
they can see the fish, and shout:
"Oh! I see one."
"0l my, so he U.V
" Let's catch him."
" Who's got them baits P"
fo lay thing, you're sitting on
my pole;" ' : ' .
" Show me the wretch that stole my
worm:" - . .. .
All tnbse exclamations are gotten oa
in a tone that awakens every echo with
in, a mile rottnd, and sends every fish
within three acres gotfara in4 gr!l)oiin'jt
hysterics. . Then the girls by superhu
man exertions manage to get a worm
on the hok, and " throw in" with a
splash", like the launching of a wash
tub, nd fwfc tbi result. When a silver-fin
comes along and nibbles the
bait they pull up with a jerk, that, had
an unfortunate fish weighing less than
fifteen pounds been on the hook, would
have landed it in the neighborhood of
three of four miles in the country Af
ter a while a feeble-minded sunilsh con
trives to get fastened on the hook of a
timid woman, and she gives vent to her
tongue : j
" Oh ! something's got my hook ! "
"Full up, you little idiot!" shout five
excited voices as poles and hooks are
dropped and they rush to the rescue.
The girl with the bite gives a spasmodic
jerk, which sends the unfortunate sunny
into the air the full length of 40 feet of
line, and he comes down on the nearest
curly head with a damp flop, that sets
the girl to clawing as though there were
bumblebee9 in her hair.
uOch! murder i takeitawpy. t'gh!
the nasty thing!"
Then they hold up their skirts and
gather about that fish as it skips over
the logs, one all the time holding the
line in both hands, with her foot on the
. pole as though she had an evil disposed
goat at the other end. They talk over
it. . .
" How ever will he get off?"
"Ain't it pretty?"
" Wonder if it ain't dry?"
" Poor little thing ; let's put it back
" How will we get the hook from it?"
" Pick it up," says a girl who backs
rapidly out of the circle.
" (lood gracious, I'm afraid of it.
There, its opening its mouth at me."
Just then the sunny wriggles off the
hook and disapjears between two logs
into the water, and the girls try for
But the sun comes down and fries the
backs of their necks, and they get three
headaches in the party, and they all get
cross and scold the fish like so many
magpies. If an unwary chub dares
show himself in the water they poke at
him with poles, much to his disgust.
Finally they get mad all over and throw
their poles away, hunt up me luncn

they sit around on the grass and cater
pillars, and eat enough of dried beef
and rusk and hard-boiled eggs to give

Dodging the Tax-Collector.
D. II. Mitchell, of Leavenworth, Ks.,
had ?19,350 to his credit in a bank in
that city on the 28th of February. On
that day, to avoid paying tax on it, he
drew the money in the shape of Lf. S
legal-tender notes from the bank, on
his check, placed the notes in an en
velope, sealed it up, and deposited it in
the vault of the bank as a special de
posit for safe keeping. Three days af
terwards he withdrew the package and
redeposited the notes as an ordinary
credit. The County Commissioners
heard of the transaction, and added
$9,000 to his assessment as a penalty,
and he was ' taxed on the increased
amount. He filed a bill in equity against
the Commissioners to restrain the col
lection of the tax, alleging that, as his
bank balance had been converted into
U. S. notes which are not taxable, and
were held in that form on the day his
property was listed, he could not be
taxed on them. The Superior Court of
Kansas dismissed the bill, for the rea
son that a court of justice sitting as a
court of equity will -not lend its aid for
the accomplishment of any such pur
pose as escaping taxation.
; - The case went to the U. S. Supreme
Court, and that tribunal affirms the de
cision of the Court below. It says:
" United States notes are exempt from
taxation by or under State or municipal
authority, but a court of equity will not
knowingly use its extraordinary pow
ers to promote any such scheme as the
plaintiff devised to escape his propor
tionate share of the burdens of taxa
tion." Washington's Self-Control.
An officer to whom he was very much
attached was taken dangerously ill, and
he had him removed from his uncom
fortable quarters to a room in his own
house. Late in the evening one of his
aids, wit h some other young oflicers, re
turned from a party iu the country, and
gathering around the old fireplace, grew
quite hilarious over some incidents that
had occurred. Washington stepped out
of his room adjoining, and, after ex
changing a few words with them, spoke
of the sick officer and his dangerous
condition. The young officers became
quiet, but after a little while they forgot
all about it, and were merry as ever. In
the midst of their jokes and laughter
the door of Washington's room opened
very gently, and the General himself
appeared with a candle in his hand.
Crossing the floor on tiptoe, he went in
to the kitchen as if in search of some
thing, and immediately returned in tte
same noiseless, eareful manner. The
young men took the hint, and immedi
ately dispersed. J. T. Headley, in

A DOMESTIC SKETCH.
Itoit a Mutt Can i'.rt Kdy io io to
.Europe iu Fifteen Minute;
It has been said that It takes a woman
half a day to get ready for an absence
of an hour. Ft has also been said that
a man can get ready to go to Europe in
15 minutes. Whether it means that he
will get ready to go in 15 minutes, or
will go in 15 minutes after he is ready,
can be definitely ascertained by putting
the pauses where they belong. As the
reader pays his money he! can take his
choice and just suit himself. " Variety
is the spice of life," and some people's
lives require a deal of the aforesaid
spice to make theirs endurable. But
not to meander from the subject means
to stay by it.
(jne day during a 9peck of sleighing
Jim Jones hired a horse and cutter and
went home to take Mrs. Jim out for a
ride. He got home just as she was
rocking the baby to sleep. The baby
had the whooping-cough and wouldn't
let any but her mother rock her. So
Jim said he would drive around awhile
and then come back. So he drove and
drove, as he thought, about half an hour
and went back and the baby wasn't yet
asleep, and he looked at his watch and
found he had been gone just 10 minutes.
So he went away again and
drove and drove and came back and
slammed the door when he went in and
awoke the baby that had just got
asleep and set her crying and coughing,
and she whooped like a young Coman
che Indian on the warpath. But after
much rocking and singing she subsided
and poor Mrs. Jones thought she
would get ready for her ride. While
she was getting ready she had three
calls ; then after that she had to go into
the kitchen and tell Bridget what to get
for tea, then there was no water in the
wash-pitcher, then she had to get a
clean towel. But she flew around pret
ty briskly and at the end of 10 minutes
or thereabouts she said she guessed she
was ready. Then Jones found there
was a button off his overcoat, and it
was the top button, too, so she sewed
that on and pricked her fingers and she
said emphatically that " she wished she
could ever go anywhere without first
sewin on a button or rocking ababy,"
and Jim. said no one asked her to sew
on a button, but if she hadn't sewed it
on she'd been two hours getting ready
any way, and added, incidentally, that
" he could get ready to go to New York
and get back while she was making up
She said " probably he could if he
had three or four waiting on him, as he
usually did when he got ready."
Then he said " 'twas no such thing,"
and she 6aid it was, and as sure as you
live her words were verified that night.
After they got home and had tea and
were sitting comfortably by the fire,
there came a ring at the door bell, and
a moment thereafter a telegram was
brought in, and it was from New York,
and requested Jim to "come on," on
the next train, which went at lu :'M,
just three hours from that time. So
Jim settled back to reading, remarking
that there was "plenty of time."
So he read the ncwo, political,
Surveying it most critically o'er
tVnd poor Mrs. Jones fidgeted, for she
knew " just how it would be." Well,
about 'J o'clock Mr. J ones said he guess
ed he would get ready, and just then he
clapped his hand on his coat pocket,
alter the manner ol men, ana sa-s ne
" There, I've got to run down to the
office a minute, and while I'm gone you
just put a shirt and some socks in my
sachel, and he grabbed his hat and
rushed out. She went to get his shirt
and couldn't find the key to the bureau.
She hunted and hunted, and scolded,
but she could not find it, neither could
she find any other one that would fit,
except herself, and she would have
lit' any one for half a cent.
She got in an awful state of
heat and vexation, goaded on by the
gaping sachel that stood in the middle
of the floor and a momentary expecta
tion of hearing Jim's hummels on the
stairs, and just as it was a quarter of 10
and she had arrived at the tearful stage
of the proceedings he came and opened
the door and stopped and said
come to think it were
better not to tell what he said be
cause it was dreadfully personal to Mrs.
Jones, and she felt it to be so, and an
swered that she wasn't, an.d she couldn't
pack his sachel when every thing was
locked up in the bureau and the key not
to be found. Her tears flowed afresh
when he unfeelingly remarked that
" nothing could ever be found in that
house after one once let go of it." So
then he hunted and hunted, and turned
over all her handkerchief and collar
and glove boxes, and looked in the per
fumery bottles, and moved the bureau
out, assisted by the whole household
force, who ran hither and thither, their
motions being greatly" accelerated by
sarcastical remark from Mr. Jones,
who managed to talk all the tune,
whether he was heard or not.
4 At last says he, " Well, here it is'
he went to say 10 o'clock and stuck
his fingers in his vest pocket and pull
ed out the identIean:evTTnTrs. Jones
hadn't seen him her VouTd ever have ,
told; but she did see him, ana- sue
didn't say a word so that he could ex
plain that he locked the drawer up be
cause he had put some valuable busi
ness letters in it the day before, and any
man is justified in taking care of busi
ness letters. She only gave him a look
that somehow reminded him of the pic
ture of Polycarp and the lions, and she
stood by meekly while he unlocked the
drawer, and she put his things ift his
sachel while he went to black his boots
he having first, however, pnt the letters
in his pocket. Then there was running
hither and yon for Lis slipper, which
were found under the lounge where" he1
kicked them in the morning, and then
his dreseing-case had to be forthcom
ing! fhea his bo'tlo of cough balsam
had to be found and put la cis inner
overcoat pocket, and he was ready.- So
he kissed Mrs. Jones, who slobbered
on hini, find then started to run a mile
in 15 minutes. It is supposed that he
succeeded, for he eventually reached
New York. ,
And such a dreadful looking room as
the one he left. The chairs were having
a meeting over in the corner, the towels
Were distracted and the wathbowl was
overflowing. The sof.p frna in the spit
toon and his cast-off clothing graced the
center of the room ; and, oh, my, the bu
reau! One drawer was out on the floor,
the other one was half out, and the top
looked very like the counter of a second
hand clothing store, so varied and con
glomerated was its lay out. And it
stood out front the wall Just where he left
it. which would give one the impression
that it started to go somewhere and then
changed its mind and didn't. But Mrs.
Jones was avenged; be dida't get ready
in 15 minutes, and when she wrote she
told . him. sC, She laughed last and

The Missouri Wheelbarrow Man Heard
One aterhoo'a , recently about 5
o'clock a man and boy apparently worn
with travel, and certainly ofonr-ed by
the sun and begrimed with the dust o
the road, were seen trudging in West
King, the DlilH bein between the han
dles of an oddly constructed and hand
somely painted wheelbarrow, and the
boy wa.kih'g b his sitte. The man
proved to be Mr". J. C. Ttiiiplc, Of the
town of Joplin, Jasper County, Mo.,
the boy being his son Otto, aged 13
years. He said that he left Joplin on
the 28th of February, accompanied by
his son Otto and an Englishman named
Wilson. Some time last winter he
made a proposition that if the Oronogo
and Joplin Mining Company of Jasper
County would give him GO pounds of
mineralogical specimens from their
mines, he would wheel them on a wheel
barrow all the way to the Centennial.
Some beautiful specimens of ore were
brought to him and he constructed a
wheelbarrow that would be particular
ly suitable for so long a journey. The
entire weight of the barrow, baggage
and specimens of minerals is 150 pounds,
and the cost of the outfit was $125. The
minerals are specimens of zinc, lead,
blackjack; spar, and garnet, all from
Oronogo and Joplin, Mo.j mines.
Mr. Temple and his son have travel
ed more than 1,400 miles. They have
made as high as 27 miles a day and
rarely less than 20 miles, though they
frequently stopped off at convenient
points to recuperate, at one place rest
ing as long as five days; They camped
out 27 nights, but generally were fur
nished with good lodging and hospiti
bly entertained along the route.
The first railroad ever built in fhe
United States, and the first coal-mine
ever opened in this country, are both
situated within fifty miles of Philadel
phia, at the most picturesque town of
Mauch Chunk, and ought on no ac
count to be omitted by visitors to the
Centennial. The railroad is still op
erated and is called the " Switch-back,"
for the cars are drawn up steep
inclined planes by stationary engines,
and then switched back, moving by
gravitation down a slightly descending
track. Pleasure cars run over the
road, and take one in view of the orig
inal coal-mine. This romantic town,
where the wealthy Judge Packer
resides, is worth a whole week's
stay. Unexceptional accommodations
are afforded at the American
House, where plain and respectable
travelers with only one trunk receive as
much attention as those with a half
dozen, which, says a correspondent who
speaks from experience, is more than
can be said of most hotels in that and
other places. A fine railroad ride over
the mountains to Wilkesbarre, over
looking the far-famed and beautiful
Wyoming Valley, is one of the delights
of this region.
The cheerini; glow diffused throughout
the system by ilostetter's Stomach Bitters,
the elasticity of mind and bod which they
impart, and the disappearance which they
cause oi those vajjue, uneasy icciius so tin-
hcult to describe, arc most encourasroii'
symptoms to the desponding invulid. The
sensation of retumimr health is a most de
lightful one, and to enjoy it, those afflicted
with dvsnepsia. liver complaint, constipa
tion, intermittent or remittent fevers, lack of
vitality, sleeplessness, rheumatic, nervous
end urinary troubles, should avail mem
selves without delay of this Invaluable tonic

adics. it is wondrouslv effective in all dis

Dr. Sciienck's Pulmonic Syrup, Sea
Weed Tonic asdMaspbakb Pills. These md
icines have undoubtedly performed more cure ot
Cdnsnmptlon than any other remedy known to the
American public. They are compounded of vege
table ingredient and contain nothing which can
be injurious to the human constitution. Ottiei
remedies advertised as cures for Consumption
probably contain opium, which it a somewhat
dangerous drug in all case, and, if taken freely
by consumptive patients, It most do great injuryt
for its tendency is to confine tb morbid matter in
the system, which, of conrsv, must make a cure
impossible. Scbenek'a Polmpnlc Syrup is war
ranted not to contain a particle of onium. It ii
composed of powerful but harmless herbs,' which
ci on the lungs, liver, stomach and fclood, and
thus correct all morbid secretions and expel all
the diseased matter from the body. These are the
only means by which Consumption can be cured,
and, s Schenck's Pulmonic Syrup, 8ea Weed
Topic and ttandrake Pill are the only medicines
which operate in this way, it U obvious they are
the only genuine cure for Pulmonary Consump
tion. Each bottle of this invaluable medicine is
