The ceremonies at York town embraced the laying of the.corner stone of the mon ument, which was a remarkably interest ing affair. The Masonic procession un der the direction of the Grand Master and including the visiting brethren pioceeded to the monumental site. The chair oc cupied by the Grand Master on the oeca sion was the one Lord Bottetourt, when governor of the old dominion, presented to the Grand Lodge of Virginia, and in which George "Washington sat when Grand Master of Virginia Masons. The sash and apron worn by Grand Master Peyton S. Coles of Virgiuia,\vere worked by Mrs. Lafayette, and presented to Washington in 1784. Afterward, in 1812 they were given to Washington Lodge of Alexandria, Va.. by Major Lawrence Lewis. The gavel was made from a por tion of the quarter deck of the United States Frigate Lawrence, flagship of Commodore Perry at the battle and vic tory of Lake Brie in 1813, and presented to Masonic Veterans' Association by M. W., Rev. Marshall B. Smith, in 1880 and the mounting and inscription were pre sented by A. W., Zachariah Dederick. This gavel was used by brother Smith as Grand Master of Masons of New Jersey in 187G and 1878 and in laying the corner stone of the monument on the battle field of Monmouth in 1878. It was also used by M. W., Jesse B. Anthony, Grand Mas ter of Masons in New York, to lay the corner stone of the Egyptian obelisk in Central Park, New York city, in 1880. Judge B. li. Welford of Virginia, Mason ic orator, then made an eloquent address at the conclusion of which the ceremo nies ended. Among tee many noteworthy applica tions of electricity during the past few years, one of the most remarkable is the gastroscope, an instrument for viewing the contents ot the stomach. The appa ratus consists chiefly of a bent tube, at the lower end of which is a tiny glass lantern, while the npper end terminates in an eye-piece. In use, the lower end ot the tube is passed into the stomach through the mouth and esophagus, the upper end projecting from the mouth far enough for the convenience ol the opera tor. Small wires conduct an electric cur rent along the tube to the lantern, where a platinum wire ir rendered incandescent by the electricity, thus illuminating every part of the stomach. The lantern con sists of two globes, one within the other between which a stream of water is pass ed to prevent any uncomfortable heating of the outside. Throrgh the small win dow in the .lantern the images from the stomach travel along the tube to the eye piece, being bent by prisms sufficiently to pass around the curve. By an ingen ious contrivance the window is revolved at pleasure, so that any portion of the stomach's couteuts may iti turn be brought to view. This new scientific marvel has been in actual use in Vienuaj and will probably prove valuable to medi cal men in studying digestion and diseas es of the stomach. A year ago rabbit shooting was per mitted on October 15, but this is chang ed. In 1878 a law was passed making it legal to shoot partridges and rabbits on October 15, but last winter the Legisla ture changed the law, leaving the date for the beginning of partridge shooting the same (October 15), but establishing the legal date for shooting rabbits on No vember 1. Sportsmen will do well to "stick a pin" in this. Thomas Garfield, a brother of the late President, lives on a small farm in Otta wa count}', Michigan. A reporter recent ly penetrated the wilderness to find him. He is fifty nine years of age, stoops somewhat,, and carries a pair of hands as hard as a pine knot. He is intelligent and reputable, and never had any other ambition than to make an honest living. James some times visitedjhim, and the brothers never drifted far apart.

In amount and practical value of contents, in extent and ability of corres pondence, in qualtty of paper and style of publica tion, it occupies the first rank. It is believed to have no superior in either of the tlnee chief divis ions of FARM CROPS AND PROCESSES, HORTICULTURE & FRUIT-GROWING, LIVE STOCK AND DAIRYING, while it also includes all minor departments of ru ral interest, such as the Poultry Yard, Entomology, Bee-keeping, Greenhouse and Grapery, Veterinary Replies, Farm Questions and Answers, Fireside Reading, Domestic Ecomomy, and a summary of the News of the Week. Its Market Reports are unusually complete and much attention is paid to the Prospects of the Crops, as throwing light on one of the most important of all questions— When to liny and When to Sell. It is liberally illustrated and is intended to supply, in a continually iucreas ing degree, and in the best sense of the terra, a LIVE AGRICULTURAL NEWSPAPER. The Volume of THE COUATRY GENTLEMAN for 1882 will be largely increased in Contents by the addition of a sufficient number of pages to meet the growing demands upon its space,but the terms will continue as follow, when paid strictly in advance: ONE COPY, one year, $2.50; FOUR COPIES, $lO, and an additional copy for the year free to the sender of the Club; TEN COPIES, S2O, and an ad ditional copy for the gear free to the sender of the Club.
