IMVi Thc Seribe's Kcport. IubI a little too lale fur our lust re- port canie answers to two of thc ques- i tions of May 1. They would have been in gea8on but for a delay in the mails. We are sorry that wc have only room now for brief extrncts from these answers. The lirst one gives the fol lowing addilionnl facts concerning Canute: He nt lirst shared the sov ereignty of Kugland with the Saxon king, Edward Ironslde, " who ruled over the south, while Canute was monarch of the north of England. The deatb of Bdmund, in 1017, made Canute boIo ruler until hii deatb, in 1085. lle was born in 006." Here are also some points of interest concerning Bacon which have not been mentioned: " Baoon (Francis, Lord Verularn, viscount of f?t. Albans) was born in London in 1561. Hia motber was thc learned Anne Cooke. He tinally be came the greatest of modern philoso phers and pbilosophical writers. 15a con's life was not as upright as the lives of sonie great authora and think ers. Uurke characteri.ed hlm as the " wisest, wittiest, meanest of man kind." His court life did not tend to make him any better, for the court of Elizabeth was anvthing but a place of purity, both in ruanners and practices,as regards ruoralsor statecraft. We have, however, in Uacon's essays a book of the profouudest wisdom concerning life and its relationsto other lives, material things and the universe of God. They are as applicable and valuable to-day as they were at the time of their cora posilion, over two centuries ago. Bacon has becotne known in rccent I times as the ego of the character I known in literalure as Shakespear. I The matter started years ago with MiBs j liacon, a relative of the philosopher. ! Carlyle exploded the whole doctrine j by saying that " Bacon could have created this planet as easily as he could 1 have writteu ilaralet." Concerning the controversy here al- iuded to, something more may be said while we are studying about Shake spear. Of the paragraph quoted May S which contained the word " got " 80 many times, successful revit-ions have been received frora " Dannie," Kdna B. Uana and Marion O. Scolt. The i three are almost exactly alike; yet each of tbem has in one or two in stauces a somewhat better word than the others to substitute for "got." llence we will give the paragraph, re Vlsed as they have it, choosing the , words that seem to tit best where the three differ: " I was on horseback within ten min utes after I received yourletter. When 1 arrived at Canterbury I oblained a chaise for town ; but I was wet througb before I arrived at Canterbury and I caught such a cold as 1 shall not re cover from in a hurry. When I arose in the ruorning I ate niy break fast and theu dressed myself, that I might go out in time to obtain an answer to my memorial. As soon as I received it I jumped into the chaise and went.back to Canterbury, and abuut tea-time I reached home." " Dannie " suggests that " the com position might be improveil, but the Neribe did not ask for that "which is all very true. Answers to two of the question of May 8 have been received from Kdna B. Dana, and the following coruplete et from " Cousiu Polly": "(1) The twelve books of the Faerie (ueene were to represent the twelve moral virtues, each personilied in a kuight who was to eouquer the sins and errors that were at war with the virtue he represunted. The Mag nilicence of the whole of virtue was personilied in King Arthur, who was seeking union with the Faerie Queene. The poem abounds in legeodl of dwarfs, fairiei and giantsantl in stories of the wonders of the New World. (') Some authorilics give the date of the publicatiOD of tlie Autborizetl Ver sion of the iiible as 1610, lut it is gen erally given 1611. (t) Fifty-four per sons were elected by Kiig .lames to make a new translation of the whole Blble. Forty-seven of the meu ap pointed began tlie work in Wil. They formed into committees, to eaeli of which was given a portion to translate, and after three years' labor each had completed tlie part assigned hlm. They then met togetber to revise and cor rect the wliole, and to settle, by con sultation, any ditliculty that had been met in the translating." The Faerie Queene was to have couBisted of twelve books, as statetl in theBe anBwers, but only tiix of them were completed. This poetn has not been so widely read as its tnerits cause it to deserve. This is owing in part to its inttojUtttd dlcliOO uud is in part be- eause of the thought Nqnlltd to reacb its deepcst meanings, it being gome what allegorical; and, as Haylitt say : " They are afraid of the allegory, aB il they thought it would bito them.'' The Faerie (Queene herself, (jloriana, nieaus Glory. Each book recounts the adventures of one knight who repre sents one of the virtues that go to make up the perfect whole. Thus in the lirst book we have the Hcd Cross Knight, represcnting Holineps, letl astray by Duessa, or FalBchood, and rcscued through the effi rts of Una, a beautiful woman represcnting Truth, whom the knight really loves all the while. The secoDd book has Sir (iuyon, or Temperance, for its hero; and the stanzas above, which are more often quoted than any other of Spencer's, are from this book. For our nt xt lesson we will have the following: (1) What iB the dilTcrence betwcen tragedy autl comedj ? (J) What are Shakespear's four prin clpal tragedles? ('!) (iive a brief outline of one of Sbakcspcar's plays. Address Xo. 18 South Lorins; strect. Lowell Mass. " Jolin Brown'a Uody." In the song".Iolin Brown's Body '' we have an example of a melody and a set of words which seem never to have been written or composetl by anybody. It is a genuine " folk song," growing OUt of a widespread seutiiuent, as many old folk songs have done, which far more closely rcspondcd to the tuu sical wants of thc COmmOD people than any ci.refully-prepared antl cleverly composed Mjng could. In the casc of t his song, however, its recent origin and almost instant growlb into common use gives us an opportunity to trace its begfnnlngs and development in a way wincli is linpossible wilb older songs. The tune of " John Brown's Body " had its origin before the words that are now known or remembered in con nection with it. It was sung before the war of the rebcllion as long ago, at least, as 1856 to words which do not now rcmain in use, al certain New Kng land camp-meetinga and revival serv ices. Two members of the Boston militia cotnpany called the " Tigcrs," happening to be at a camp-nieeting in a imall town in New Ilampshire, lieard the song sung to reliffious words atul remembered the air. The name of one of thcse men was Puripgton, and of the other Jolin Brown. Notlong after this the war broke out aud the" Tigers '' were madea part of the Twelfth Mas sachusetts Itegiment of Volunteers, which rendezvoused at Fort Warren, in Boston harbor. Here the two men already named, l'uringtou aud Brown, formed, with two others named Edgerly and Greenleaf, a quartct, aud the quar tet sang, among its other songs, all sorts of words of their own " getting up " to this tune. John Brown was u good natured Scotchman, and the mem bers of the quartet say they sang "John I5rown this antl John Brown that " to the tune, until, by an almost unconscious cliange, the hero of them was changed from John Brown of the " Tigers " to John Brown of Harper's Ferry, and the grand and simple versc came into existence: " .lolin Itrown's body Hes BVmOttldering in tlie Kround, ' hut lii8 soul U 1 1 1 . ; i ii, on." Before this time the masses of the North had not been in exact sympathv with the purposes of John Brown, but the excitement of the early days of thc war called out a Bentiment which tliese wortls t xactly Btted, Wheuever the BOldier quartet were in Boston they were caJlcd upon to sing this song. ' The Twelfth Beglment took it up. ! Samuel C. Perkina of Brockton, a j member of Maitland'a bantl, which wai statioud with the regiment at Fort ; Warren, wrote dowo the air while a 1 soldier whistlcd it. Theu the band played it every day. When Edward Bverett formally presentetl the set of j colors to the Twelfth Regiment on Bos- i ton Common, the speech of acceptance being made by Colonel Fletcher Wcb- ster of the regiment, the tune was played, and the mullitude fairly went wild over it. The band played the tune going up State street in June, L861, and the soldiers sang it as they j marched along. The crowd along thc tidewalk took up the air and joined in the chorus: " Olory. Klory, haUalnJabi Ilt.s duiil ncit'S inurt-hlnK on '. " Soon after the regiment sang it in marching through New York, on the way to Baltimore, with the same effcct. It spread at once throughout the coun try and became the antbem of the LJuiou. In December, 1861, Mrs. Julin Ward Howe wrote for the air the words beginning " Klna cyes bftVS seen tbt K'ory of tlie cotnlng of U Lord," which was called " The Battle HymD of the Kepublic," which soon beeame immensely popular, but niver sup planted io commoQ use the old, Bimple words, This is the story of the nriL'in of " John Brown's Body," as tolaby the members of the band nnd the regi ment with whom it had its ue as a popular song.

WALTER & BAHNKY Attorney-at-Law and Insurance Apnt. omi c. rMnah'i Blookt No. , Min hu eoi, . Barre, Vt. Tea-Mnkinir. WomeD that have over had the care of a houso . antl very many who have not, all have a vtay of their own in making tca, aud, though to any one else it may not appear as the best way, yet they have becotne so aceustomed to it that when a better way is tuegested they seltlom approve of it. The klnd of tea depentls on the taste of the fam ily, which is, of course, known to the houscwife; const quently, no (llsttnct kind can le recommentletl. The iuan tity usetl varies aceordiny to taste, but usually one tea-spoonful of tea for each cup is what is allowed, antl if this should be too strong il can easily be weakcned to taste. Always use a pot made of some kind of eatthen-ware, and never, on any account, use a tin one. If tin must be used for this purpose never !et the tea stantl in it only long euough to steep. Tea when left stand ing in anytbins is not a drink to be recommended, but if left in a tin pot it becomes actually poisonous and ouht never to be drank. When makinir tea always be sure that the water used is boiling. It is not enough that it has been boiling and is slill very hot, but it must be boiling when poured on tlie tea. It is best when convenient to always use the w ater when it first boils, for if the water has been taken off, set back and has to be rcboiled for the tea it is not as good. Scald out the teapot before usiug, then place in it the quan tity of tea used. I'ut the teapot, with the dry tea in it, on the back of the range and let it remain a miiiute or two. Then add enough boiling water to just cover the tea, put the teapot back on the stove, let it remain about three min utes, then add the quantity of water necessary. Serve immediately, and there is no doubt but that it will be good. When weakening tea always do so with boiling water, when possible, but if not boiling at the time, very hot water that has been boiling is the next best thing. Never for this purpose use any water before it has boiletl, no matter how hot it may be, for it will ruin the tlavor of the tea, also putting on tlie top of a cup of tea a scum that is anything but in viting to look al, asitle from drinking it. Never boil tea, but if by accident it boils, throw it away aml make fresh, for altbougb this may appear wasteful, it is an excusable waste that ouyht to be commeaded. Always empty the tea pot after eacli meal, aud put it away until wanted, but never let it stand on the stove, as some do, frotn one meal to another. tfaDV housewives have a habit wlieu making tea of putting a pinch ot the dry tea m their mouths antl chewing it. It is uot that it has a pleasant taste, or that they like it, but only a habit formed, as many others are, thoughtlessl y. This should be dis continuea as quickly as possible, as the juice of the dry tea extracted in this way has a verv injurious effect ou the system. Excnange. be to follow that plan our railroad com panies observe when tbey allow you ten rninutes for dinner. You could then wnsh the food down with water or other liquid, antl thereby not bur den the stomach by the saliva; but it so happens that the saliva actsas a pro mnter of the secretion of thc digcstive fluitls of the stomach. In experiments that have been tried it has been fouml that if tlie fiow of saliva be directed elRfwhcre than in the stomach di gestion takcs place slowly antl Borae times not at all. Then we must under stantl that tbe use of the saliva in deglutilion is simply a mechanical one, and is the very least and most insig nificant of its uses." The writer con dcmns, however, the habit of chewing gumatall hours. Mediral Hulletiri. iUeohol for Colds. It is a popular notion that among the things for which alcohol is umiuestion ably a good remedy, even if it is some what tlangerous, is its use as a prevent ive of colds aequired by exposure. Be lleving this. many peraons habitually lake with them a Bupply of alcoholic liquor whenever they expect any pos sible expcsure. we have known many instarices in which persons who hatl been reforrncd from thc habitual use of liquor have been led into the habit agnin through the seduciive in Muence of this popular error. We aro glatl to see that so excellent and emi nent a medical authority as Dr. John son of Washington, I). (,'., has put him self on reeord as opposing this error. We quote the doctoi's vicw in the fol lowing paragraph from a recent article from his pen ou tlie subject of pneu monia: "The GOIBmoU beltef is that potations of alcoholic llquori wiu stop or preveut a cold, but of all nonular be- liefs it is the most fallacious, for no habit like that of iuUmpcrance so readily invites an attack of pneu monla during the continuance of colt', ilitmi) weathcr, attended with north and northeast wintls. This is a fact uot generally rccoznlzed, but an Individual who is not a drinking mau has three times as good a chance to recover from an attack of pui umt nia as has oue who is an habitual driuki r, for, by the i x Citing effect of alcohol, the lungs of all drinking men are continually kept en i gorged vt ith blood far in excess of a l healthy staudartl, and conscquently drinking men are never without a cough. When the lungs are in thisun , natural state of engorgement they are I more apt to receive the causes of their lnflammation with iireat readiness and fatality. LadM1 Homt Jijnrnal. Ncrroas I'rostrntion. For persons suffering with uervous prostr:ition it is doubtful if there is a better remedy than the cold douche. It is a favorite treatment of the illus tiiousDr. Westmorelantl. On begin ning, the patient can uot stand very coltl water, so it is better to lillapitcher and let it remain over night. Next ruorning, immediately upon leaving the bed, have some one to pour it upon the back, beginning at the base of the brain and allowing it to run to the end of the spine. In a very short time you can bear water just from the well, which is Inflnitely better. The spine is then to be rubbed with coarse towels until the skin is red. A most delightful exhilara tion follows, and it must be a bad case which will not build up rapidly under this treatment. Exehange. Gum.Chewlnir. Dr. DeArmond believes that gum chewing will cure certain cases of dys pepsia, and reports such an instance occurring in a mau whose trouble was that after meals, and until digestiou was completed, which seemed au in terminable lengtb of time, he bad naini in his stomach. a feeling of fulness more dlscomforting than painful ainl a coustant tendency to eructation of footl. My treatment, he says, of the case was very simple autl quite as satisfactory as simple. 1 directetl hlm to lay in a tupplyof cbewing-gum, and after every meal to chew a lump for an bour or two, swallowing the saliva. That set tled that case, antl I got my fee quite as willingly as if I bad given a lix-ounce bottle of medieine. This patient tells me that he has never been troubled since he commenced to chew the gum, except after a meal of sauerkraut, pigs' feet, or other moustrous proventler. The writer'l idea as to the ratiouale of the remedy is given as follows: "There is a very grievous error in the state ment that saliva is valuable principally to aid in degluiition antl mastication. The saliva is possessctl of a peculiar power in aremarkable degrecof chang ing starch into sugar, in which state it is absorbed. Now it is not to be luppoted that this transformation can be made in the almost lmmeasurably short space of tune of tnastication autl deglutilion. This transformation also takeB place in the stomach for a period of Qfteen or twenty minutes after deglu iition has taken' place. The saliva being alkaline in its reactiou, autl the gastric juice acid, is no reason why the presence of the alkaline saliva should fnterfere with the actiou of the gastric juice upon tbe food in the stomach. Were tbia true, tbe best way to hasten aud encourage stomach digestiou would Tested Keelpes. Cookiks.
