WEDNESDAY. DEC. 16, 1874.
The excellence of aphorism has
been said to consist chieflly in
the comprehension of some obvious
useful truth in a few words; and, if
this be the case, the Chinese lan
guage is peculiarly adapted for the
production of proverbs, for it pos
sesses, from its peculiar structure,
a beauty and pointedness of expres
sion which, however, no degree of
oars or pains can adequataly con
vey into a translation.
Let us cite from various sources
s few of the numerous aphorisms,
maxims and proverbs current
among the Chinese, many of which
will suggest parallel sentiments in
our own and other languages.
By a loijg journey we know a
horse's strength; so length of days
shows a man's heart
In the dajs of affluence always
think of poverty; do not let want
come upon you and make you re
member with 'regret the time of
plenty. In contradistinction to
this sentiment is another: Let us
get drunk to day, while we have
wine; the sorrows of tomorrow
may be borne to morrow.
To correct an evil which always
exists is not so well as to foresee
and prevent it.
Wine and good dinners make
abundance of friends, but in time
oi adversity not one is to be found.
Cautious conduct under circum
stances of suspicion is inculcated
somewhat oddly by the following:
In a field of melons do not pull off
your shoes; under a plum tree do
not adjust your cap.
"Tempus fugit" becomes, in
Chinese: "Time flies like an arrow;
days and months like a weaver's
The Chinese evidently agree with
Solomon's well known advice to a
parent, for they say: "If you love
your son, be liberal in punishment;
if you bate him, accutsom him to
If you would understand the
character of a prince, examine his
ministers; if you would understand
the disposition of any man, look at
his companions; if you. would know
that of a father, observe his son. -
Man is born without knowledge,
ahd when he has obtained it very
soon becomes old ; when his expe
rience is ripe death suddenly seizes
The fame of men's good actioDS
seldom goes beyond their own
doors; but their evil deeds are
carried to the distance of a thou
Tbouerh powerful medicines are
nauseous to the taste, they are j
good for the disease; though candid !
advice is unpleasant to the ear, it '
is profitable lor the conduct.
From the following simile, look
ing glasses are evidently appreci
ated by Chinese ladies: Without
a cleare mirror, a woman can not
know the state of her own face;
without a true friend, a man can
not disern the errors of his own
The evidence of others is not
comparable to personal experience,
nor is "I heard'' as good as "I saw."
The three "great misfortunes in
life are: In youth to bury one's
father, in middle age to lose one's
wife, and being old to have no son.
A virtuous woman is a source of
honor to her husband; a vicious
one causes disgrace.
He who at once knows himself
and knows others, will triumph as
long as he contends.
It is easy to convince a wise man,
but to reason with a fool is a diffi
True gold fears not the fire.
"A basket of grain producing
only a pound of chicken meat," is
symbolical of a loosing business.
"Climbing a tree to hunt for
fish,'' expresses looking for things
where they can't possibly be found.
A Musical ProdKldV.
The Milwauke Advertiser of Sat
urday has the following: Last
evening a reporter for the Daily
Advertiser had the pleasure of
calling at the residence of Mr.
Simpson, of the revenue service of
this district, and observing the
wonderful musical talents of the
little five year old daughter" of Mr.
and Mrs Edward Simpson.
The child C urrie is a remarkably
bright and vivacious little body
who will be six years old next
January. When she was two years
old she began to evince the greatest
desire for music, and to the aston
ishment of her parents and all who
saw he would play upon the piano
. correctly any simple air that was
first played for her. From that
time, although she has had no in
structions whatever upon the
piano, Miss Carrie has continued to
play and improve, until her per
formances cow are absolutely as
tonishing. Last evening the little
Mias played without the least
hesitation most dificult selections
from ''Zampa" and other operas,
and rendered the ' Carnival of
Venice," in a style that was perfect.
The child was so full of laughter
and playfulness that she would not
pay the least attention to her
bands or the piano but was most
intent upon having an evening
frolic; yet the little fingers would
not miss a note in the music, and
they evidently were, doing their
work without the least volition on
the part of the child. A remark
able feature of her playing is the
fact that she is very apt to change
from one key to another in per
foi ming a piece, yet never making
the least discord by so doing.
Of course the child has not the
physical force to bring out the full
music of many selections specially
from the operas that she plays;
the notes, however, even in the
most difficult passages, are all put
in, and always without hesitancy or
error. When Miss Kellogg was in
the city, that lady witnessed this
phenomenon, and declared that as
a musical prodigy the little daugh
ter of Mr. and Mrs. Simpson has
no equal in the world.
Miss Carrie is a beautiful and
interesting child, of more than
ordinary physical and mental de
velopment; is a blonde, possesses
regular features, and is more
striking in appearance than most
children of her age.
Mrs. Simpson is a talented
musician, but the parents have very
wisely concluded not to force the 1
musical powers of their daughter
by cultivation until she -is old
enough to receive thorough in
struction from the very best
masters. The child is a wonder
ful musical erenious, who would
attract the attention of the whole
world if brought before the public;
and it is fortunate for her that lier
parents have the uncommon good
sense to keep the little prodigy
away from the public as much as
possible, instead of bringing her
out as most parents, we fear would
be tempted to do.
Fletcher William' Gun.
Recently it occurred to Mr.
Fletcher Williams, of St Paul, that
it would be a good thing to go out
and see if he couldn't shoot a rab
bit or two. He always kept his
gun loaded and ready in the corner
of the room, so he merely shoulder
ed it and went out. After a while
he saw a rabbit, and, taking aim,
he pulled the trigger. The gun
failed to go off. Then he pulled
the other trigger, and the cap
snapped again. Mr. Williams used
some extreme language, and then
taking a pin, he picked the nipples
of the gun, primed them with a
little powder, and started again.
Presently he saw another rabbit,
but both caps snapped again.
The rabbit did not see Williams,
so he put on more caps, and they
snapped, too. Then Williams
cleaned out the nipples again,
primed them, and fired the gun off
at the fence. Then the caps snap
ped again. Then Fletcher became
furious, and in his rage he expend
ed forty seven caps in an effort to
make that gun go off. When the
forty-seventh cap missed, also,
Fletcher thought that there might,
perhaps, be something the matter
with the inside of the run, so he
tried the barrels with the ramrod
To his bitter disgust, he discovered
that both barrels were empty,
Mrs. vv liliams, who is nervous
about firearms, bad drawn the
loads without telling Williams, for
fear of making him angry. If
there had been a welkin anywhere
about, it would probably have been
made to ring with Mr. wilhans ex
cited denudations of his misfor
tunes as a hunter. Finally, how
ever, he became cooler, and, loading
both barrels, he started again after
rabbits. He saw one in a few
moments, and was about to fire,
when he noticed that there were no
" caps on his gun. He felt for one",
and to his dismay found that he
had snapped the last one off. Then
he ground his teeth and walked
home. On his way there he saw
at least six hundred rabbits. He
has been out hunting every day
since, however, with his gun in
first rate order, and he has never
laid eyes on a solitary rabbit
Williams is beginning to think
something is wrong in the govern
ment of the universe. Sunday
Brown, the "mind reader," who
gave two exhibitions of his wonder
ful power in this place, some two
yeare ago, is creating a sensation in
the Eastern States. He has not

FINE TREE W UAL,
NATURE'S GREAT REMEDY
THROAT AND LUNGS,
It is gratifying to us to Inform the lnbllo
that Dr. L. Q. C. Wishart's Pine Tree Tar
Cordial for Throat and Lung Diseases, his
gained an enviable reputation from the At
lantic to the Pacific ocean, and from thence
lu some of the first families o( Europe, not '
through the press alone, but by persons
throughout the States actually benefitted
and cured at his office. While he .publishes
less, so say our reporters, he is unable to sap
ply the demand. It gains and holds its rep
utation: First. Not by stopping cough, bat by
loosening and assisting nature to throw off
lite unhealthy matter collected about the
throat and bronchial tabes, which causes
Second. It removes the cause of irritation
(which produces cough) of the mucous mem
brane and bronchial tubes, assists the lungs
to act and threw off the unhealthy secrej
tions, and purifies the blood.
Third. It is free from squills, lobelia, Ipe
cac and opium, of which most throat and
Inng remedies are composed, which allay
cough only and disorganize the stomach. It
has a soothing effect on the stomach, acts ou
the liver and kidneys, and lymphatic and
nervous regions, thus reaching to every
part of the system, and in its invigorating
and purifying effects, it has gained a repu
tation which it must bold above all others
in the market.
