At hits will read with interest soma le peers from Thomas Oalusborough, the ralnttr, to the earl of Dartmouth In 1771, which are included in the latent volunio Issued by the, historical manu scripts commission. A difference of opinion had arisen between his lordship and Gainsborough as to the likeness of the countess of Dartmouth painted by the latter. In the course of the correspondence, which Is thorough ly good humored and studiously polite, the artist expresses his readiness to make any alterations his lordship might require and a discussion takes place concerning the costume in which the countess could be portrayed to greatest advantage whether fancy or actual. Gainsborough speaks of "the ridiculous use of fancy dresses in por traits," and begs to be permitted to try an experiment on the question, un dertaking to paint a fresh one for noth ing if he spoiled this one. "I mean,' he says, "to treat it a a cast-off picture and dress It (contrary.

Mr. Bowen is widely known among Methodist brethren everywhere by the eobriequet of -Hallelujah" or "Amen" Bowen, the origin of these names being his perfervid ejaculation during prayer. Mr. Bowen Is upward of 90 years of age, and notwithstanding the fact that he has had his ribs broken and is both blind and deaf, he retains all the earnest and honest en thusiasm that characterized his long career in the pulpit. On the platform or In the street he is a conspicuous fig ure, as his snow white hair falls in a mass of curls and ripples around his wrinkled face. He is over 6 feet tall, and In spite of his advanced age tho huge frame Is scarcely bent.

The Epworth League of ihis church is named in his honor. When 4 years old Mr. Bowen began chewing tobacco, and although he made repeated efforts to abandon the habit the craving for the weed mas tered hl9 good resolutions. However, when 70 years old he conquered this desire and for twenty years tobacco in any form has not passed his lips.

Ilia ancestor, James Primrose, was appointed clerk to the Scottish privy council by James VI. in JG02, and held that important office nearly forty years. Archibald Primrose, son of James, succeeded to his father's po sition in 1641, and remained faithful to Charles I. during all the turbulent reign of that hapless monarch. After the restoration in 1C61 Sir Archibald was made a lord of session, nnd ap pointed to the office of lord clerk regis ter. Sir Archibald's fourth son, Archi bald, was created earl of Rosobery In 170J. and it Is through his descent 'rom the latter that the present earl of Ro:-e- bery holds his title. The late earl of Rosebery had two sons, the elder of whom bore the courtesy title of Lord Dalmeny, and was M. P. for the Stirl ing burghs in the reformed parliament from 1833 till 1847. Lord Dalmeny wa married to Catherine, daughter of Karl Stanhope, and sister of the his torian, Iy)td Mahon. afterwards Lord Stanhope, and their eldest son, th present enrl of Rosebery, was born In Ixmdon. 7th May, 1817.

HOW COFFEE WAS DISCOVERED A Traveller in AIkaIhIm M uieMe.l I pim Hit Mirult. The following Is given as the original discovery of cortee; Near the middle of the fifteenth century a poor Arab was travelling through Abyssinia, and, finding himself weary and weak from fatigue h- stopped near a grove. Then being in want of fuel to cook his rice, he ut down a tree which happened to be covered with dead berries. His meal being cooked and eaten, the trav eller discovered that the half-burned berries were very fragrant. He eol lected a number of these, and. on crushing them with a stone, he found that their aroma increased to a great extent. While wondering at this, he accidentally let fall the substance in a can which contained his scanty sup ply of water. Iaj, what a miracle! The almost putrid water was almost Instantly purified. He brought it to hlR lips. It was fresh, agreeable, and in n moment the traveller had so far recovered his strength and energy as to be able tei resume his Journey. The lucky Arab gathered as many berries as he could and, having arrived at Aden, in Arabia, lie informed the mmstl of his dkse-overy. That worthy divine was an Inveterate opium smoker, who had been suffering for years from the Influence of that poisonous drug. He tried an infusion of the roasted berries, and wns so delighted at the recovery of his own vigor that, In gratitude lo tho tree, he called it eahuah. which in Arabia signifies force. Hie earth is not equaled elsewhere la the world. Where the thermometer otten registers HO degrees of heat, uu- I relieved by even a breath of air; where men sleep at night la hollow ditches fllhvl with water In order to avoid dy ing from collapse, the necessity for (he longest team of mules and horses ever harnessed to draw the great borax-laden wagons Is apparent. The des ert team Is the longest in the world, and the percentage of deaths among the horses Is greater than that of domestlo unlmals used in any other calling. For ty to sixty horses are often hitched to one of the lumbering vehicles in which the borax is slowly dragged across the sun baked alkali plains. The average life of even the sturdiest horses used In this work Is six months, for in ihls length of time they either beeomo broken winded, consumptive from In haling the deadly dust of the desert or are driven crazy by the frightful heat. A man there, though protected by the wagon awnings from the suu's rays, can not go an hour without wat er without danger of death. When a team bncakg down and the water sup ply become1 depleted, the men ride at top speed for the nearest source of supply, and often when they return they find that the remaining horses, made mad by thirst, have broken from the harness and dashed off. only to find death in the desert. The borax wagons weigh 8,000 pounds, and carry 20,000 pounds at a load. Behind each wagon Is a tank containing hundreds of gallons of water. The horsee are harnssed in pairs, the trained ones in the lead, and tho next in intelligence just ahead of the tongue, while the un ruly and the youngsters are hitched be tween. The nigh leader has a bridle with the ftrap from the left Jaw shorter than the other, and from the bridle runs a braided rope which the driver, pen bed on the wagon seat, holds In his right hand. The rope is called the "jerk line," and is a little longer than the team, which stretches out several hundred feet In front of tho wagon. During the buay season tho borax wagons make an almost continuous train, and the horses alone, if placed in Ringlo file, would make a team more than 100 miles long.
