Consul Morgan, in his supplementary report on the trade and commerce of Brazil for the year 1874, just issued, makes special mention of a most useful tree, which would be a valuable aotiui eition to any country where it would condescend to grow. The tree in ques tion is the carnouba (copernieia ceri- fera). a palm tree, which without any culture develops itself in Ceara, Kio Grande del Norte, Bahia, &c. Perhaps in no country, says Consul Morgan, is a plant applied to so many and varied purposes. It resists tbe most prolonged drought and preserves itself constantly luxuriant and green. Its roots possess the same medicinal effects as the sarsa- uarilla. From the trunk are obtained tttronz fibres, which acquire a beautiful lustre, as well as corner pieces of tim ber and excellent "palisades for enclo sures. The palmetto when young serves as an appreciable and nutritious food ; and therefrom also wine, vinegar and a saccharine matter is extracted, as well as a kind of gum similar in its taste and properties to sago. This plant has often served during the period of excessive droughts as the means of sup port to the populations of Ceara and Kio Grande del Aorte. rronitlie wood and trunk of the tree musical instru menu are made, as also tut and pumps for water. The delicate fibrous sub stance of the pith of the stalk and its leaves make a good substitute for cork. The pulp of the fruit is of a pleasant taste, and the nut, oily and emulsive, is, after being roasted and reduced to a powder, often used as coffee. From the trunk of the tree a species of flour sim ilar to maizena is extracted, as well as a liq'nid resembling that of the Bahia cocoa nut. From this dried straw, mats, hats, baskets and brooms are made, and of this straw large quantities are ex ported to turoiie, where It is employed in the manufacture of fine hats, the whole value of which exported and of such as is utiliard by national industry amounting now to about 4.117,500 per annum, i inally from Its leaves is pro duced the wax used in the manufacture of candles, the annual exportation of which exceeds in value i.'lti2,500. Pall Mall Gazette. Bracelets. Periiaps the history of no other arti cle of jewelry can be traced so far back as that of the bracelet. This may be owing to tbe fact that it was more ea sily manufactured, being in the earli est times bnt a rude band of flexible metal wound around tbe arm. Brace lets, we are told, have been used by both savage and civilized nations from the farthest back ages down to our own. They are mentioned in Genesis as worn by both men and women. The Medea and Persians were noted, even amongst Asiatics, for their love for ornaments of this class. The Gauls wore bracelets and the Sabines, as early aa the foundation ef Home, had ponderous golden armlets on the left arte. Tbe same as true of the Sami ans about the same time. Now, judg ing from these facts, it is very evident that the human race, ever since its cre ation, has had a natural hankering af ter adornments for its arms. This be ing the case, it is not to be wondered at that the designs and styles and ma terials employed in the construction of bracelets since their invention are in numerable. Tbe Grecians even wore bracelets in the form of a snake. The Emperor Nero adorned his right arm in a golden armilla, which enclosed the skin of a serpent. Koman ladies wore bracelets, not only for ornaments, but for the punese of containing amulets. which were supposed to effect miracu lous cures. However, tbe snake period, and the amulet period, and the serpent peroid are among the things of the past, and only the plain, substantial aettigns born out of a healthy, refined, cultivated nature have come down to ns through loug aires. Thus we find among the elegant assortment of brace lets of to-day several specimens which in many respects bear a strong resem fa ience to the heavy, chased bands worn in tbe middle ages. There are tbe Ro man gold bands, ornamented with a unique design in gold of many colors, and there are the massive banns formed from links of gold, all of which savors strongly of ancient days. One of these bands is particularly chaste. Tbe de sign is a small section of swamp, edg d, with a few reeds and a crane. The work is raised, and the gold employed for tbe ditft-mnt parts of appropriate tint ; the small portion of water visible glitters in sunshine; the silvery wings of tbe bird flash in the light. Another is Koman gold, has tbe upper surface studded with three balls. Each ball is embellished with a tiny branch dee ply chased. Upon this branch is perched a bird worked in delicate tracery. In tbe way of diamond bracelets there is nothing especially new. This may perhaps be owing to tbe perfection of tbe old styles. There is the usual va riety of bracelets ornamented with the cheaper gems and precious stones. For the present, chain bracelets are obso lete ; and all band bracelets fasten at the side with a patent clasp. Am Eoclac-er's Stary. In the autumn of 1S3G I was an engi neer on the Galena and Chicago Union railroad, now the Galena divission of the great Chicago and Northwestern railway, was sent one Sunday from the junction thirty miles west of Chicago to Harleiu, to bring up several cars loaded with railroad iron. On arriving, at Harlem I found the turn table broken, and, therefore went down to the limits, then Ualstead street, to turn my engine about. At that time there were no houses between the city and Oak Ridge, nine miles out, it being a smooth, level prairie all the way, and but little travel except on cars. The road was an air line, and when I had got half over the distance, I saw, walking on the track, a young man and a young woman, each one carrying a small parcel, and having the appearance of fugitives. That was long before M r. Greeley had instructed the young men to "go west," and this pair had really got the start of the 1 rib une seer, for they were going west as fast as they could walk, and at the time of my meeting them, had a long stretch before them that promised no pleasing company except such as they found iu each other. After turning my engine I started back, and iu a short time overtook the wanderers, when I stopped the en gine and invited them to ride. At first they seemad a little timid, but I quieted their fears, and having got them nicely seated in the cab, I started on. By severe questioning I learned that the man had been in the employ of a farmer, in Chautauqua county, N. Y.; that the girl was the only daught er of the farmer; that they had deter mined on getting married against the will of tbe parents, and had ran away, seeking the haven of rest, Chicago. Here they got out of money, and. as tbe youug man failed to get work they had started out to look for places among the farmers. I took them to the junc tion, where his story awakened a good deal of interest for them among the railroad men, resulting in placing him at De Kalb as a night wiper of locomo tives. Here they continued all winter, and. as I nsed te see them at times. think I never saw two persons better or more lovingly mated than they The following spring I lost sight of them, but subsequently I learned that they had returned east. A few days after Christmas, 1S73, went into Everett's dining rooms. Wash ington market. New York, and ordered dinner. V hue waiting to be served. saw a well-to-do farmer-looking tndi vidua! enter and take a seat at the next table. He was in conversation with butcher, and I thought I recognized something familiar in the voice and features of tbe new comer. 80 im pressed was I with the belief that I had seen him before that on finishing my lunch I approached and asked bun if we had not met somewhere. He failed to remember ever having seen me, and was about going away when I asked if he had ever beeu on the A ortn western railway. At first he answered in the negative, but quickly corrected himself and said. "Why, yes, X was out there years ago." "Did you work for the company?' "Yes I wiped engines at De Kalb one winter." Then, for the first time, it occurred to me who be was. and I asked If he re membered being picked np one Sunday net ween Chicago ana IMK Kiuge. "I shall never forget that!" said he "and I know you must be the man who befriended me then. How my wife would like to see you." And he grasped my hand in token of my former kindness and bis rememberauce or it. 1 learned that his wife's parents had sent for them to come back the spring that I missed them : that be had finally come into possession of the farm on the death of his father-in-law: bad been very successful and was at that time de livering two car-loads or stock to tne butcher at his side. later a rla-e i Jraaaav In tbe upper classes marriage is de termined, if not chiefly, yet perhaps decisively, by means. It is part of the prosaic, practical (and yet how fatally unpractical) programme which seems the law of the modern German nature the money, if in a family, shall not be allowed to go out of It. Hence, Dotn in the case of gold and land, marriages and iiitcriuarrivges go on generation alter generatioii.the relationships grow lug ever nearer and nearer, more and more confused, and the results, as may be readily immagined, ever more and more disastrous. In no other country does one meet with the same number of goitrous throats, scarred necks, spin al disease, hip disease, bad teeth, and generally defective bone structure, as iu Germany. No hesitation is felt in siteakiug oitcnly on matters that one night without hypocrisy, be justified in hiding under any available bushel. v ho is that frightfully uisr igurea person?" asked my neighbor a brilliant young Lieutenant of hussars, at a rami- ly dinner, "Jch letde tehr an kkrofeln, said the young lady in question on the other side of me, speaking in the same level, emotional tone that she might have used in asking me to pass the salt.

In anoth er family, where cousins had intermar ried with cousins apparently since the flood, the sole heir to a vast property was a delicate spineless boy, a child whose bones had a cruel tendency to work through the skin, and so to slough away to the agony of the little sunerer. It was not possible that he should live. and, when alter twelve years or terrible existence, death came, and mercifuly set him free at last, the childless father, looking around, picked out another cousin, took her to wife and lived to have three more children, whereof two were grieveously afflicted in mind and body, but the third, a hectic boy, sur vived to inherit the estate. Frater1 Miqazinc. Clianateama Weather. Climate is geographically fixed, while weather is atmospherically variable; climate is a calculated quantity, while weather is an unknown one. All sorts of rules are applicable to climate, but none are applicable to weather. Cli mate is monarchy, weather is an archy. Climate is a constitutional gov ernment, whose organization we see and understand ; latitude and altitude are its king and queen; dryness and dampness are its two houses of parlia ment; animal and vegetable products are its subjects, and the Isothermal lines are its newspapers, but weather is a red-hot, radical republic, all excite ments and uncertainties, a despiser of old rules, a hater of proprieties and or der. Climate is a great, stately sover eign, whose will determines the whole character of the lives and habits of its retainers, but whose rule is regular, and therefore so little felt that it seems like liberty; but weather is a capricious cruel tyrant, who changes his decrees every day, and who forces us by his ever-varying w hims, to remember that we are slaves. Climate Is local ; weather is universal. We are indifferent to climate because we are accustomed to it. but we are dependent ou weather be cause we never know what form it will take to-morrow. Climate is the rule; weather is the exception. Climate is dignity; weather impudence. Black- usuoa Minfizme. The Pineapple. The history of the pineapple dates back for several centuries. Columbus found it growing on the Island of Gaud' alupe in 1492. The Japanese cultivated It as early as 155!), and it is supposed it was Drought to turope rrom Java. It appears that this fruit was transplanted from South America to Asia and Africa, for in 15!2 it was carried to Bengal and China; from that country it passed to Brazil and, according to Humboldt grows wild in the forest of Oronoco. 1 hey spoil very easily and sometimes during the voyage here a whole cargo of a vessel is spoiled. It is considered a good trip if three- rourtbs or a cargo is in order when the vessel arrives. This depends not only on the length of the voyage, but also upon the weather experienced, thunder showers being particularly destructive to them. It is estimated that four mil lion two hundred thousand pineapples are brought into New York annually. The business of canning this fruit is be coming quite extensive and likewise protlitable, and at least a million pine apples is put up in cans every year. California may yet come in for a share f this trade, for we believe our hot Southern countries will y.-t produce this delicious fruit in quantities, if not our nearer Counties then Lower California and Mexico which will soon be added, win give 11s x'ines. Easter Day. The reason why Easter will fall this year on the 10th of April, rather than on the 9th, is explained as follows in The Churchman: Easter day is regulated not by a solar but a lunar cycle the cycle that regu lates the golden number. Now, by solar calculation, a day always begins at midnight; but by a lunar calculation it begins at noon. If, therefore, tbe Paschal full moon falls on Saturday after 12 r. if., it is counted as falling on Sunday ; and then Easter day is, under the rule of the prayer-book, the Sunday following. This is what happens in the present year. The Paschal full moon falls on Saturday, April 8th, at 3:43 p. m. It is, therefore, counted as falling on Sunday, April 9th, and Easter day is on the Sunday following, i. e., April 16th. It may be added that should the full moon fall on March 21st before 12 f. m., the full moon (counted as falling on March 20th) would not regulate Easter day, but the one following. This happened in 1810. AttSrCTLlTllL. A Good Wat to Maxagk Bulls. No system of managing stock bulls is more objectionable than the prevailing practice of keeping such animals tied np in a stall. In order to be healthful, active, or vigorous, bulls most have more or less exercise every day. When a bull is kept coufined in a small apart ment where he cannot exercise his whole body, he will become debilitated and bis procreative energies will be so feeble that be caunot be relied on. Stock bulls have exercise and plenty of it. When a bull becomes so unruly that he cannot be restrained In a small enclosure, let htm be fastened to sweep-pole, or to the arms of a horse power of a thrashing machine, and let him travel in a circle. To make a sweep for a bull, set a strong post in the rround and saw the top end off square. about two or three feet high. Then bore a two-inch auger-hole, about foot deep, in the upper end. Then pro cure a strong pole, thirty or forty feet in length by four to six inches indlara eter, lay it on the top of the post so that the ends will oaiance, do re a noie through the pole, and put a strong wooden pin down through the pole into the too of tbe post. Let the bull be secured to one end of the pole by a rone or strap around his horns. Let him have three or four feet play. Most bulls will travel equal to several miles every day when secured to such a sweep. It will pay generously to provide such an appliance for every stock bull that is not permitted to run loose in a yard If a bull can be kept in a small yard, 1 sweep will not be necessary. Practical Fanner. Stock Posds. Many farmers living in the prairie districts nave su tiered greatly for the want of water for their stock the past fall and winter. There is, at this season of the year, ample time for making ponds of sufficient strength and capacity to afford water for all the stock the farmer will have upon his farm hereafter. The work can be done chiefly with the plough and scraper. It is better to make deep pond at once, so that there may never be any fears of failure of water. There should be provided a safe con duit for the surplus water, so the dam cannot be destroyed. By making a deep and large pond, several other ob jects are obtained, it can oe siocneo with fish, and it is astonishing wltn what rapidity they propagate and and grow. The rearing of fish is made a profitable business in some parts of this country and in Europe, and far mers. with a little or roresieht in malt ing ponds, could always have fish for the table. Tbe pond will also afford ice to fill the ice-house, and no farmer should be without one. for ice is a great luxury In summer, and indlspensible to keeping sweet, cool milk and butter. The advantages of good ponds are so many and great that farmers who have not got them should go to work at once ana make mem. There is naniiy a farm in the West that has not ground upon it adapted to making half a dozen good ponds. A few days of hard work and the job is dne for a lifetime. We know that all farmers' wives endorse our views on the subject of good ponds. Sural World. CtiTixo Fodder. The following com munication from H. Ives, Batavia, N. Y., was read to the American farmers' club: "I would corroborate the state ment of Mr. Tanner, of Minnesota, In his communication to the club, saying that it pars to cut his corn fodder, and could answer his inquiry for an eleva tor to carry the cut leed up to the Darn, storing it away as it is cut. So 1 would cut cornstalks up for my own advan tage, even IT it made them no better ror tbe cattle, and feed them liberally that they may leave all that they do not like which I will clean out once a day to use for their bedding. I agree with Mr. Yeamans that the cutting machine will be abandoned ir run by nana power. for to run successfully it should be driven by horse power. And this say ing that It made their mouths sore, re minds me of good advice given me years ago by an old feeder, that stalks should be cut for cattle two or three inches long, for he said the stalk had a hard, glazen case, and if cut short the pieces, when eaten, would come end ways between their jaws, and- this sharp case would cur their gums, mak ing them sore. But if cut long the nieces will come horizontally between their teeth, avoiding that trouble. And as for harvesting the stalks or lettiu ting tnem stand uncut where tnev gre' would as soon think or not cutuug my meadow, and 1 olten have those which are cut early and well pressed, worth as much for fodder by the acre as so many acres of my clover."

Fifty fowls will make in the roosting house alone. 10 cwt. per annum of the best manure in the world. Hence fifty fowls make more than enough manure for an acre of land, 7 cu t of guano being the usual quantity applied per acre, and poultry manure being even richer than guano in ammonia aud fertilizing salts. No other stock will give an equal re turn in this way, and tbe figures will demand careful attention from the large farmer. The manure, before using, should be mixed with twice its bulk of earth and then allowed to stand in a heap covered with a few inches of earth, till decomposed throughout, when it makes the very best manure that can beliad. Sawdust fob Garden Walks. The Gardener' $ Chronicle gives an account of successful garden walks made of saw dust, which are Jrm and yet soft to tbe tread, tbe sawdust soon becoming of a neutral tint, and weeds seldom grow. It strikes as that every thing depends on the kind of wood used; we should naturally prefer the red cedar and whit oak sawdust to that made from bssswood and hemlock. unnrinc. The A locasta.

Scarcely any natives were seen, though there were frequent signs of their being about. Mr. Smith urst refers to a verv remarkaole bird, which, so far as we know, has not hith erto been described. The natives state that it can fly away with a dngong. kangaroo, or a large turtle. Mr. Suait- hurst states that be saw and shot at specimen of this wonderful animal, and that, "the noise caused by the napping of wings resembled the sound ot a lo comotive pulling a iong train very slowly." He states that "it appeared to be about sixteen or eighteen feet across the wings as it fleV, the body dark brown, the breast white, neck long, and beak long and straight." In the stiff clay of tbe river bank, Mr. Smitburst states that be saw the foot prints of some large animal, which he "took to be a buffalo or wild ox," but he saw no other traces of tbe animal. These statements are very wonderful. and before giving credence to them we bad better await the publication ot the official account of the voyage. Peculiar Effect of Lightning on Vine. At a receut meeting of the Soriete Helcetique de Science Aaturellet, Pro fessor Ilufour mentioned a lightning stroke which in the month of June last struck simultaneously two vineyards. distant over SK) feet apart. In one, the surface anecied measured 57 feet square, and included some SH) vines. in tbe other the surtaen was about 33 feet so 11 a re and about 100 vines aDeared to be destroyed, while others were par tially so. In August, however, those Tines which appeared to be the most severely injured threw out vigorous branches, and early in September were covered with new bunches of young grapes. But on the other band, those grapes already started, and which, had the lightning not intervened, would have formed tbe year s crop, ceased all development. In his treatise on lightning. Arago cites, as remarkable facta of rare oc currence, lixbtning strokes apparently divided into two or three branches. Here, however, the lightning divided into two branches to strike vineyards considerably distant tram each other, and then the branches must have pro- dnced xju and 1MU jets respectively in order to strike the separate vines. - Torture bu Electricity. The punish ment lu Dieted on garotte rs. and on criminals who perpetrate brutal crimes on old people or on women, in Eng land, is a whipping well laid on, and the effect is said to surpass any other means of preventing such crimes hith erto devised. A recent EnglUh writer thinks that our suggestion relative te killing murderers by the electric shock might be modified to suit the cases above mentioned ; and he wants tbe legislature to authorize the substitu tion of the battery for tbe lash, so as to produce absolutely indescribable torture (unaccompanied by wound or even bruise), thrilling through every fiber of such miscreants."

Coating for Lama Shade. A German chemist has suggested the following com position as a coating ror lamp shades, ceilings, etc.. as preferable, in respect to beauty, permanence and cheapness, to ordinary oil paint, since it adheres firmly, remains of a brilliant white at bigb temperatures, contains no organic matter, and by the use of suitable mineral colors, can have any shade imparted to it. Pure sine white oxide of zinc thoroughly pulve- ized, is added to a solution of silicate of soda of forty to fifty degrees, until the mixture has the consistency of or dinary oil paint, The metallic surface to be coated must be thoroughly cleansed zinc and some other metals to be treated with hydrochloric acid- then washed with water, and the above compound laid on several times, by means of a brush, until the surface is well covered : only a short time is re quired between tbe coatings, for the previous one to dry. Mineral Wool. The method of man ufacture at the Krupp Works, Essen, Prussia, is as follows: The pig iron furnace is provided with a tap an inch in diameter, out of which a continual stream of slag is allowed to flow and to fall a distance of 2 feet 6 inches, at which point the falling stream ot slag is met by a strong blast of cold air. the effect of which is to separate the slag into myriads of hairlike threads, as white as snow, resembling the finest wool. These fibers like span glass, if handled, will penetrate the skin. The mineral wool is used for packing steam oners, etc., ana is a valuable product. The Cow. If civilized oeonls were ever to lapse into the worship of ani mals, tbe cow would certainly be their chief goddess. What a fountain of blessing is a cow! She is tbe mother of beef, the source of batter, the origi nal cause ot cneese. to say nothing of shoe bonis, hair combs, and upper lea ther. A gentle, amiable, ever yielding creature, who has no joy in her family affairs which she does not share with man.

OKBrnc. . Oatmeal for our Tables. Oatmeal is doubtless associated with the sick room in the minds of many of our read ers, yet as an article for daily-Jbod it far excels tbe loaf or wheat bread, ana 11 more nutritious and health-giving. In Scotland it is used for food in many families with little addition, excepting milk from the cows, and the bright eyes, ruddy complexion, and stout mus cles of the working men and women folly attest iu superiority to the fried pork and saleratus bulscnlt, etc., which constitute the chief diet of our laboring classes. But Scotch oat-meal Is a differ ent preparation from that procured from our oat fields, and is prepared in peculiar manner, and then ground to three degrees of fineuess. It also im proves in Quality by being kept, if not allowed to become moist. The first degree of meal Is called groats, and it is made by setting tbs millstones closer, aud a still finer meal Is procured by sifting it, and it is this second' meal which is used for bannocks, or oat-meal cakes, while the coarser particles are boiled Into porrltch. which Is the most popular form of cooking It In this coun try ; ana wnen 11 is property prepveu and served wun rich nuiK or cream. few more wholesome dishes can be eaten for either children or adults. Ii Great Britain children of all ranks are raised upon this diet alone, because it causes them to grow strong and health ful, and uo better rood can poesioiy oe found for them. It Is also quite as de sirable for tbe student as the laborer, and for the delicate lady and for her hard-working sister; indeed, all classes would be greatly benefitted by Its use, and dyspepsia, with all its manifold an noyances, can oe Kepi si a uisiaucc. Oatmeal is more substantial food, it !s said, than veal, pork or lamb, and quite equal to beef aud mutton, giving as much or more mental vigor, while its great disideratum consists in one's not becoming weary of it, for it is as wel come for breakfast or tea as Is wheat or Graham bread. It can be eaten with svrun.and butter as hasty-pudding, or with cream aud sugar, lite rice. 11 is especially good for young mothers, upon whose nervous forces too great a demand has been made, and they lose the equilibrium or the system and be come depressed and dispirited. Oatmeal requires to be cooked slowly, and the water should be boning not wnen it is stirred in. A few recipes for preparing it, in various ways, would not come amiss. A Cheap Hard Soap. Many house keepers in tbe country know how dim- cult It is to obtain a good article of bar soap. The yellow soap sold at stores cuts soft as cheese, and rubs away easily, and unless the housewife orders a box of soap at a time, and piles It up in stacks in tbe attic or some dry place, the yearly record will show a good sum paid out ror soap purchased oy tne oar.

Pexxtrotal axd Potasb. The Scien life American says : If.wheu mosquitos or other bloodsuckers infest our Bleeping rooms at uigiu, we uucorK a bottle 01 the oil of peunyroyal, these animals will leave iu great haste, nor will they return so long as the air of the room Is loaded with tue fumes of that aromatic herb. If rats enter the cellar, a little powdered potash, thrown in their holes or mixed with meal aud scattered iu their runways, never fails to drive them away. Cayenne pepper will keep the ouuery aim storeroom tree rrom ants aud cockroaches. If a mouse makes an entrance iuto any part of your dwelling, saturate a rag witn cayenne, in solu tion, and stuff It iuto the hole, which cau then be repaired with either wood or mortar. No rat or mouse will eat that rag for the purpose of opening communication with a depot of supplies. Frost Bites. A correspondent of an agricultural paper furnishes the follow- ug: I have treated this troublesome com plaint very successfully for thirty years in the following manner: Wash tbe hands aud leet, if both are effected, iu water as hot as it can be borue for a short time, theu dry off and paint the parts with tincture of lodiue. It can be applied with a camel's hair brush, or witn a rag tied ou a small stick. A lew applications will give relief in the worst cases, aud cure receut ones. After a few washings they may be omitted, and the remaining spots painted until you make a perfect cure. To prevent flat irons from rusting. melt H os. camphor and H lb. fresh bog's lard over a slow fire, lake off the scum, and mix as much black lead with he composition as will bring it to the color of iron. Spread this over the arti cles for which it is intended. Let it lie for 24 hours, and then rub it well with a dry linen cloth. Or smear the irous over with melted suet, and dust thereon some pounded uuslacked lime from a muslin bag. Cover the Irons with baize in a dry puce wheu not in use. HowtoCleax Paltt. If cleanliness is, as some folks say, oue of tbe arts, all that helps it should be made known. Doors, walls, or anything that is painted, may be cleaned with a piece of soft flan nel dinmni in warm muttr than v,nn and sprinkled with finely powdered rrencn cnaiK. The paint on being rubbed with this will become ouite clean, and will be saved from the de structive action of soap. Flaxseed Lemonade. Four table- spoonfuls of flaxseed (whole), one quart or boiling water, juice of two lemons. Pour boiling water upon the flaxseed and steep three hours in a covered vessel, sweeten to taste; if too thick add cold water with the lemon luice. Ice for drinking. It is admirable for colds. Arrowroot Winr Jellt. One cud of boiling water, two teaspoonfuls of arrowroot, two teaspoonfuls of white sugar, one tablespoonful of brandy or three of wine; proceed as before. An excelleut corrective for weak bowls. ExBRorDERmo Link. New linen may be embroidered more easily by rubbing it over with fine white soap. It prevents th threads from cracking. Her Love Had Waxed.

Her Special Attraction. A brother avant recently rallied Professor Tyndall upon the subject of bis rumored en gazement to a daughter of Lord Hamil ton. The great scientist didn't deny the soft Impeachment. Eucoaragd thereby his friend pursued the subject with the view or discovering wnat special attraction could have conquered a man who had so "long resisted the fas cinations of the sex. "Is she prettier than other ladies you have seen 1" be asked. "No." "is she wittier?" "No." "Is she more cultivated ?" "No." "What then is her particular charm ?' "She has less dynamic force," said the Professor. Ax exchange says that Conductor McGleary, of the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific railroad, in taking up tickets after bis train lert Des Moines, a lew days ago, was somewhat surprised when a lady handed him a paper on which his eye distinguished the words : "Take one cup of sugar, three eggs, and two pounds of flour; stir np well, add a little saleratus, and bake for twenty minutes in a hot oven." "Do you ex pect to pass on this?" asked McGleary. "Certainly, sir. said the lady in a sur prised manner. But wheu she glanced ber eye on the paper she smiled and ex plained, while McGleary took up her regular ticket and willingly handed back her receipt for making "Boston cookies." "Fish are caught by measure and sold by weight that is, they are caught by the gill and sold by the pound. But they are sometimes caught by waii wait till you get a bite." Frequently they are caught by weight, as when tbey are caught by tbe pound, and they furnish their own means to weigh themselves when they are weighed iu their own scales, lion est fishermen too often steal when they book the naa.Buegrut Journal. The other day a minister offered prayer at the laying of a corner stone. A brisk young reporter bustled up and said : "1 wish you would give me tbe manuscript of that prayer." "1 never write out my prayers, said the preacher. "Well," said the reporter, "1 couldu't bear a word you salu." "1 wasn't prav Ing to you," quickly responded the parson. Ole Bi ll was once seeing the sights at Don ny brook fair, when he was at tracted by the sound of a very loud violin in a tent.

A little Hartford girl was reproved for some childish act; and, seating her self on the floor at her mother's feet re flected for a long time, snd then looking up, said, "Mamma, why is it that naughty things are so nice?" A bald man was sadly astonished to find his French barber's charges so high; "Ten francs," exclaimed he, "for cutting my hair!" "Oh. no mon sieur, uot for cutting your hair, but for finding de hair to rut." Pcnch defines "fashionable extremes'' as "high heels and low foreheads."

Befceaefc, staaoard Kesaedlea, The standard remedies for all diseases of the lungs are Schexck's Pulmonic STRtr, Schexck's Sea Weed Toxic, and Schexck's Mandrake Pills, and, if taken before the lungs are destroyed, a speedy cure Is effected. To these three medicines Dr. J. H. Schenck, of Philadelphia, owes his un rivalled success in the treatment of pul monary diseases. The Pulmonic SvruD rlnens the mor bid matter in the lungs; nature throws it off by an easy expectoration, for when the phlegm or matter is ripe a slight cough will throw it off, the patient has rest ana tne lungs begin to beat. To enable the Pulmonic Syrup to do this, Schenck's Mandrake Pills and Schenck's Sea Weed Tonic must be freely used to cleanse the stomach and liver. Schenck's Mandrake Pills act on the liver, removing all obstructions, re lax the gall bladder, the bile starts freely, and the liver is soon relieved. schenck's Sea Weed Tonic Is a gentle stimulant and alterative; the alkali of which it is composed, mixes with the food and prevents souring. It sssists the digestion by toning up the stomach to a healthy condition, so that tbe food and the Pulmonic Syrup will make good uiwu , men mo lungs neai, and tbe pa tient will surely get well if care la taken to prevent fresh cold. All who wish to consult Dr. Schenck, either personally or by letter, can do so at bis principal wuk, - nd Arch Streets, Philadelphia, every Monday. , , . Schenck's medicines are sold by all druggists throughout the country. tobtivaMsawBtUit uijijaWul irawfi wb aball urody th Lftrresjt quntttr frna lihTsji irif .vtvd ALFHA tmem ot nn. i pariav CKNTKlllltAL MIMIUMft. 1C to b mnfod fnrth b collect to, one pck aeh, t1 potty UM totradiicva br wm tnet ItBt. iS&s far tb bwt and iBifiaf Mkdlinr rwinvrl this jartrom 'mprtmiamt 01 fXB mt cflerrd will biinfcrtwl wX Tk. xJltuM wftawk Ik.
