Mr- llolluud bits the nail exactly on
the head ia the iollowiug words irom
iscribuer's lor January :
What is the euro tor gossip? Simply
culture. There is tt great deal of gos
sip that has no nialiguity in it. Good
oaturcd people talk ubuut their neigh
bors because and ouly because they
have nothing else to talk about. As
we wriiu, there comes to us the picture
ot a tuinily of young ladies. We have
beeu tli cm ut home, we have met them
ia galleries of art, we have caught
glimpses of theui goiug from a .book
store or a library, with a fresh volume
iu their hands. When wo meet them
they ure lull of what they have seen or
read, They are brimming with ques
tions. Uuu topie ot conversation is
dropped ouly to give glace to another
iu which they are interested, We have
lult ihe m, alter a delihtlul hour, stimu.
hi led and velreshed ; and during the
whole hour not a neighbor's garment
wtts soiled by as much as a touch.
They knew something, aod wimtcd to
know more. They could listen as well
an tlicy eould talk. To speak ircely of
a neighbor's doings and belonging
would have seemed an impertinence to
them, and of course, an impropriety.
They had no temptation to gossip, be
cause the doings of their neighbor:
formed a subject very much less inter
esting than those which grew out of
their knowledge and their cultu.e.
And this tells the whole story. The
confirmed gossip is always either mali'
lieious or-ignorant. The one variety
ueeds a change of heart, and the other
a change of pasture. Gossip is always
a personal confession either ot malice
or imbecility, aod the young should
not only ehun it, but, by the most
thorough culture, relieve themselves
from all temptation to indulge in it. it
is a low frivolous, and too often a dirty
busiuess. There are country neighbor
hoods in which it rages like a pest
Churches are split in pieces by it.
Neighbors are made enemies by it for
life. In many persons it degenerate
into a chronic disease, which is practi
cally incurable. Let the young cure
it while they may.
While we are reasoning concerning
life, life is gone ; aud death, though
perhaps they receive him difTerei.tly,
yet treats alike the fool and the phi
losopher. Hume.
He who cannot (eel the humanity of
his neighbor, becau.-e be is different
from himself in education, babita, opin
ions, aod morals, is until if not unwor
thy to aid him.
AU the nice things of this world are
of no fur:bergood tLo they ar of use;
and whatever we tuaj heap opto others
we enjoy only it much as we can n-e,

' Pit ya Isle Iss Coin.
T. the Editor of Th. Graphic.
I am in favor of the remonetization
of silver iu the unlimited legal tender
clause. My opponents claim the bonds
read "gold." What I want to know
is, is there any other term used than
"coin" in the five-twenties and ten
forties, and if silver was a legal tender
(unlimited) at time ot issue of bonds?
An answer will oblige rue.
Allen Wood.
Hammondbport, N. Y., Jan. 10.
Answer: None of the bonds neither
the five-twenties, seven-thirties or ten
forties read "gold" on their face.
They do not read even "coin," but their
redemption is promised in the lawtul
money of the United States, which, at
the time cf issue, included greenbacks.
Afterwards, feeling generous and grate
ful for the close ot the war, Congress
passed laws promising to pay all the
bonds in "coin." This word, of eonrse,
included silver, for silver was in the
standard equally with gold when till
the bonds were authorized. The sil
ver dollar alone was the uuit of value
All the bonds may be paid in either
gold or s.lver. The following is the
endorsement on every bund, whether
five percent., four and a hall per cent,
or four per cent., issued under the law
of July 14, 1870:
Principal and interest payable incoin.
The Uuited States of America are in
debted to , of , orussigus, in the
sum oi dollars. This bond is uaueu
iu accordance with the provisions ot an
actor Congress, entitled 'An act to
authorize the refunding oi the nation
al debt, approved July 14, 1870, amend
ed bj an autapproved January 20, 1871.'
aud is redeemable at the pleasure ol
the Uuited States alter the first day of
September, A. D. 1891, in coin ot the
standard value of the United States on
aid July 14, 1870. with interest in
such coiu from the day ot the date
hereof at the rate of 4i per ceutum per
aniiuui, payublo quarterly, on the first
dsy of .December, March, June and
ireptember iu each year. JL lie princi
pal and interest are exempt from pay
iiteiit of till taxes or duties ot tl e
Uuited States, as woll as from taxation
iu any form bv or under otate or ma
nicipal or local authority.
The law which passed on July 14,
1870, is as follows:
Act of July 14. 1870. page 244 of the
nets ot the second session ot the I'orty-
tirst Congress : that the ceeretury ot
the Treasury is hereby authorized to
ifsue in a sum or sums not exceeding
iu 1 1. ntrifrt'L'u te two hundred million
dollnrs, coupon or registered bonds of
the United Mates, in such lorui as lie
nmy prescribe, and of denominations of
titty dollars or some muitipio or mat
sxiui. riilvrmiible in com of the vmrni
finiiliinl value and bearine
interest, payable semi-annually, tit ic
roiu, at the rate of five per cent, per
milium. t Also a sum or sums
not rxrpcding three hun
dred million dollars of like honds, the
nme in all rmpect interest
nt the rat of four and a half per cent.
Also a sum not
exfPfdini?onothousnnd million dollars.
of like bond, the kith in all repert
interest at the rate ot four
per cent
It will be noticed that under the
above law and endorsement, the silver
dollar of 412) grains, which wis stand
ard .when the law passed, is a full le;-al
tender for every dollar of the indebted,
ness recently incurred by the Govern
ment. Let the law be enforced.
The RftursalsBg Hoard Villalna
The whole country is deeply inter
OKtcd in the trial of the perjured
scoundrels who planned and perfected
the moi-t infamous proceeding that
ever disgraced civilization, and abso
lutely raised R. li. Hayes to the digni
fied office of President of the Ameri
can Republic, by crimes so repulsive
that every time they are mentioned the
cheeks of honeft men of all parties are
mantled with shame and confiiHoo.
The Syricuse. (X. Y) .SWW, in
discasftioe the subject ssys :
"The dy of retribution tor the in
famous returning board, which fa'siGe J

cheated the Atberkan ople out of
their choice for President, swai to be

bouse, at ew Orleans, in expectation
that the roremtneot at Washiartoa
would, as in the days of Grant. Bhield
them from the couscqueuce of thoil
crimes." ; , . ,
The Courier, however, attempts to
exonerate Hayes, and endeavors to.
make the impression that the PreaU
dential fraud was not aware of the.
damnable ciimet that were committed
in his interests. ' We take no stock in
suob a sentimental view of tho subjeot
We beliove, before the mattei; goes
niuoh further, that it will be shown
that Hayes was as thoroughly advised
of the orimes that were being concoct
ed in bis interests as any of the per
jured fcoilndrels who lifted him into.
power. And we further believe that
Hayes ought to be indicted with the
rest of the hatoh of conspirators who.
plotted for the overthrow of the de
clared will of the American people.
To steal the Presidency of the United
States is' a crime of Buoh magnitude,
that no one connected with it, no mat
ter what his position may be, Hhould
escape punishment. Indeed the high-,

t orn In Italy.
I must not forget to mention three .
other important articles of nourish-",
ment, in northern Italy, tho pntripk'ti;.
in central Italy, Indian corn, nod in,
Corsica and among the Appcni,nc8
chestnuts. Pumpkins, out into slice,
and baked, are sold at the t-trvei tur
ners, and the inner kernels of their
flat seeds are as much relished by the
boys of Venice and, Florence as pea
nuts are by ours. - At the cheap open
theaters, whore children aro admitted
for five cents, tho gravel fjoor is always..
covered with the hulls of pumpkin
seeds. The Italians know corn as wellj .
as we do, and they would not learn
much from Mr. Hewitt's propo-sed mis-
sionaiy corn restaurant ut runs, ex
cept some new varities ot cooking.
They roast tho green ears instead of
boiling them, and their favorite dish, .
polenta, is a sort of thick mush, or
'pone' mado of corn meal, salt and na-i
ter, Italy is tho only country in Ku-.
rope whero an American can get fiiod
inush, and quite as good, as at homo.
The chestnuts are very large, such as
we call 'Spanish' chestnuts and ex
ceedingly nutritious; they are tot on
ly roasted, but ground into, flour when
dry and baked as cakes. In Corsica
they are a more important crop than
even wheat; in faot, chestnuts are cull,
ed 'Corsica bread." Bayard l'uylor.
IJe or llic l.riuon.
Medical men constantly urge the use
of the lemon. A piece of lemon bound
up'n a corn may cure it in a few days 't
it should be renewed night and morn
ing. A free use of lemon juice and su
gar will always relieve a oouith.
Most people feel poorly, iu the spring,
but ii they would eat a. leuioo before
breakfast every day lor a week, with or
without sugar, as they like, they would
often find it belter than any medicine.
Lemon juice used according to this
recipe will sometimes euro consump
tion. Put a dozen lemons into cold water
and slowly bring to a boil ; boil slowly
until the lemons are soft, but not too
soft, then squeeze until all the jnioe ia
extracted, add sugar to your 'arte and.
Another nse of lemons is for a ro-t
freshing driok io summer, or ia sick
ness at any time. Prcparg as directed)
abpve, and add water aod augtr.
Hut in order to have this keep well
after boiling the lemons, squeeze them,
and strain them carelully; then, to
every balf-r int of juice add one pound
of crui-hed or loaf rngar, boil and stir
a Sew minutes more unlit the sugar ia
dlxAjlred, kkim carefully and bottle.
You will get more juice from the
lemons by boiling them, and the prepa
ration ken belter.
