Poor Katie I A greet • offerer the wm,
and most patiently aid she endure in the
hope that at last her sufferings would
come to an end. She wss just budding
into womanhood; a fine-looking girl of
nearly nineteen, who had, previous to her
attack of illness, etyoyed robust health.
Let her mother tell the story, as she
told it to taro of our editorial friends who
recently spent an evening at the house.
‘‘Katie's illness came on slowly, with
great pain in her thigh and hip. For a
while she kept on going to school, but the
pains became so severe that she had to
stay at home, and most of the time lie
down cn a little lounge here in the sitting
room. We tried the best physicians we
could get The disease baffled them aIL
One said it was ulceration of the thigh
bone, and wanted to have the poor child
undergo a terrible operation. It turned
out to be sciatic rheumatism. Poor
child! how she did suffer I About four
o’clock in the afternoon she would begin
screaming with pain. She couldn’t help
it She would scream and moan tiU
about four in the morning. Then she
would fall asleep from weariness, and
sleep for some hours. This went on for
about eight months. During the nights
neither she nor I could . leep.
“Katie was a great reader. One day,
in a paper, she saw an advertisement of
Athlophoros. She asked me to get it and
aee if it wouldn’t cure her. We had tried
a good many different things, but I
thought we would try this. And I went
and got a bottle. I gave her ad-«eof it
towards evening. It was simply wonderful
how it quieted the poor child’s pain and nut
her into a gentle sleep. She slept nicely
nntil ten. Then site was in a great
perspiration. She waked and I gave her
another dose, for the first one had done
her so much p>"xl. Then she fell asleep
again and slept till morning. Her pain
was gone. Bhe had hardly any returns ofiL
The Athlophoros did the work for her
nu«t completely.
“But the terrible sciatica had drawn
Katie’s leg up, and made it shorter than
it had been, dv several inches. She was
lame for life, although the rheumatism
was all driven out of her. She had to walk
on crutches. One day she fell down stairs
and was so badly hurt that she had to be
taken to the hospital. There she suffered
a great deal, and after some weeks she
“ Father Tscheider, of the Paulist
Fathers, saw much of Katie during her
illness, and knows all about us. Go and
ask him, and he will tell you all about it
Some time ago we gave a letter about
Katie’* case, and it was put ’ished We
bare i.ad numerous inquiries in reference
to it, all hich we promptly answer.
“ I m II jou,” continued Mrs. (Jill,
“ofou* ,nbor, Mrs. Summers, and her
eleven-yen r old boy. The boy had one of
the most terrible attacks of rheumatism I
ever knew a boy to have. I had a little
Athlophoros left in the bottle from which
Katie had taken. I gave it to Mrs. Summers,
and she gave it to the chi Id who was scream
ing with pain. When Mr. Summers came
home, he was surprised to find the boy
sitting up, free from pain, and cheerfully
singing. I wish you would go and see
them. They live not far from here, on
West 12th atre t, No. 905.”
Mr. (Jill added iu his own behalf:
“ I have had a good deal of rheumatism
myself, chiefly in nit shoulders and arms.
But I took Athlophoros and I got rid of
the trouble. I did not hsve to fake much
either. I found the medicine acted very

ily, was found at his pastoral residence, No.
417 West 12th street, Chicago. Father
Tscheider took pleasure in saying that be
knew Mr. and Mrs. Gill, and that he
esteemed them highly; also that he had
seen Katie frequently during her illness,
and knew all about her wonderful re
covery from sciatica, and her subsequent
injury and her illness at the hospital.

that you buy It from your druggist, but If be

To bluest SKie > that arch the way
I lift my thankful eyes to-day.
The sunlight falls, a golden tide.
O'er airy forests, green and wide;
Pure odors drift the morning through.
And God haa led me hitherto.
Sweet dower-perfume 1 thrill the air,
As if from eenser swung at prayer;
And sweeter fragrance fills my life
With all my Father’s goodness rife;
He gives me roees after rue,
And He has kept tne hitherto.
What joy to take His guiding hand.
To trust. If not to understand—
To rest through change and toil and tean
On Him, whose grand eternal years
In every living youth are new,
And cry, "He leads me hitherto.”

It was odd. the way I first met Hobbs.
I had been in Florence a year, ostensibly
finishing my education, a phrase always
vague enough when applied to young
men who perform tirat important opera
tion abroad, but especially vague in my
case. Insensible alworption doubtless did
something for me, but as I looked back
over the year I could see no very definite
acquisitions and was not at all pleased with
the retrospect My well planned assault
on the Italian lauguage had speedily
dwindled into a desultory skirmish on
the borderlands that gave me nothing hut
subsistence; for I had Imrely learned
enough to order a dinner, while
as Tor art well, I begin at
the wrong end of that, and
had been ever since in inextricable
confusion. To be sure, I could ta*k
learnedly enough about it—with those
who knew less of it than I did—but 1 did
not, and could not, understand it 1
could not brinjj my mind to books, a not
uunatural reaction, as they had been some
what forcibly brought to it during my
college daya My friends were uninteT
eating. and music had lew charms for me.
so I found myself sftending many hours
in my rooms, asking myself a great many
times what 1 was good for, without ever
getting anything like a satisfactory an
•wer. and had about made up mi mind to
B> home and do something w&en I met
I was sitting one morning over my
breakfast in the cafe where I look that
meal, feeling more than usually dissatis
fied with the world In general and myself
in particular, and ga/ing idly out of the
open window at the passers by, when my
attention was attracted to a little child
that Itad strayed out into the middle of
the street and was In imminent danger of
being run over bv a rapidly approaching
carriage, the driver of which was en
gaged in conversation with its oc
cupants. I start'd to my feet
with an involuntary- cry, and as I did so
saw a young man dart from the opi>osite
sidewalk, snatch tin* child from under the
horse's feet and deposit it at the cafe door,
where it was eiaimed by an agitat'd young
woman, who began a voluble thank offer
ing. The young man smiled, nodded,
and. entering the cafe, took a seat at the
table next mine. I have always found a
peculiar pleasure in trying to assign na
ttonality, character, and occupation to
people thus thrown in my way,
and turned eagerly from a con
templation of the street to a scrutiny
of new-comer. The subject of my
speculations his time was in no way re
markable. 1. was a young man of me
dium height and slender figure, with dark,
almost sallow complexion and tolerably
regular features. Nothing in his dress
served to distinguish him from the other
occupants of the cafe, unless it was a cer
tain negligence that is seldom found in
the young men of Florence. His clothes
fitted him well, yet he seemed no to
know it, for he sprawled out in his chair
as if clothes were furthest from his
thoughts: his vest was half unbuttoned,
his coat dusty. Altogether he was totally
uninteresting, and I would probably
never have notic'd him had it not been
for the incident in the street I
was deliberating whether to class
him as Austrian or Greek, for I
felt sure he was no Italian, when
he looked up, caught my eye.
smiled slightly, and 9aid "Good morning. "
TLen I saw that his eyes were blue, and
under the influence of that smile —the
pleasantest, frankest smile I have ever
seen—l responded, “Good morning, ” and
wondered where 1 had met him. Trying
to decide this question I turned again to
the window, and only observed from the
oorners of my eyes that he drank his cof
fee as if be thoroughly enjoyed it, and
when be had finished It took a cigarette
from his pocket, lighted it. and settled
back in his chair as If he meant to enjoy
that also. After smoking a few moments
he got up, and, coming to my tab'e, stood
looking out of the window for a long
time in silence. At length be turned to
roe and said. “ Bored T ”
“What does the fellow mean?” I
thought, and was about to reply curtly,
when, looking up, I saw he was smiling
at me
“Bored? Why.no Why do you ask? ”
I asked feebly.
“Because you look so, ”he answered
“W ell, ” I said, “I don't know but that
I am a little at a loss for something to do
this morning."
lie looked at me for a moment in
•flence, with a half wondering, half quiz
alcal loo', in his eyes, and then said:
“lam likely to have excitement enough
before noon. *
“How s that?” I asked.
“W'ell, my landlord has Intimated some

this morning my rooms must lie vacated

poor one. for be will not see enough evi
dence of genius in me to make him will
ing to trust me any longer. He is ah
surdly ludicrous when angry, and if you
think it will furnish you any amusement,
why come along and see it I shall enjoy
it immensely. ”
Nothing loath for this trivial even di
version, and feeling an unaccountable in
terest in this strange fellow, 1 got up and
followed him into the street He thrust
his hand into the pockets of his coat, and.
turning down a side street, led the way
toward a part of the city more noted for
its aristocracy four centuries ago than
“You see," be aaid, I have a number of
pictures for sale iu the shops, and thought
that some of them might have been sold,
but 1 have been looking around, aud find
they have not been going off very fast;”
anu added after a snort pause, “I don’t
like my rooms any way; they’re too small,
and the light’s not good. ”
Arrived at last to our destination, we
ascended (light after flight of steps until
we reach the rooms, a studio and bed
room. in tbe top story.
A bslf dozen unfinished pictures stood
on easels and against tbe wails in tbe
studio. The scant furniture was of
the most heterogeneous description. A
rickety, plebeian looking chair stood be
fore a delicately carved writing desk that
might once have graced a palace of tbe
Madid. On the floor was a Turkish rug,
much worn and liberally bestrewed with
bits of rag and cigarette stumps. On the
mantel stood aa iron figure of the crud
ftxion, flanked by cigars, a blacking
brush, books, letters. I bad barely notea
these things when the landlord, s' short,
fat, ball of a man entered; grew very
much excited when informed there was

consistent with the enormous quantity of

probably by that time weU accustomed to
it, and paid little attention to tha angry

deliberately filled a large meerschaum,
and, having lighted ft, dragged a large
trunk from tbe bed room, and began un

The landlord was by this time com
pletely exhausted, and leaned against the
well panting for breath, his little red eyes

I inquired of my aew acquaintance if he
had engaged rooms elsewhere, and being
answered ia the negative, naked whore be

uiabed just the light he needed for his
work, so in it he placed his easel My
evenings, dull ana profitless, were now
spent in pleasant converse with Hobbs,
whom 1 found a most delightful compan
ion. He had traveled much, and seemed
to know a little of every possible subject,
though when he had traveled or how he
had learned so much, for he was barely
five and twenty, and rarely read anything,
were equally inexplicable t< me I be
came much attached to him, indeed, his
genial insouciance, his utter unselfishness,
and his bright, ever-ready wit were all
conquering, and yet as I learned to know
him better I saw that he had many
faults. Foremost of these was his utter
thriftlessness. He would pass whole weeks
of almost complete impecuniosity, as gay
as a lark, living in a haphazard Bo
hemian way, refusing any assistance,
finishing his dinner of a crust and a glass
of water with a merry dissertation upon
the follv of high living, and then, a pic
ture being sold, would insist -pon a sup
per at the most expensive restaurant in
the city, and on such occasions no game
was too rare, no wines too costly, and no
ciirars too good for ua I always pro
tested against such extravagance, but
argument and supplicatiou were alike in
vain, for he brushed them both aside with
a wave of his band, and would take no
refusal. And what a treat were those
suppers to me! Hobbs, always entertain
ing. became fairly magical under the
triple influence of meat, wine, and a filled
Another trait that displeased me in
Hobbs was his inconsistency. He was
very clear and positive in his opinions, an
ardent advocate of the truths of Christian
ity, and of strict views of morality, vet
he never went to church, although always
intending to, occasionally drank more
wine than was good for him, and, I re
gret to add, swore with great vigor and
fluency when his pictures were rejected.
He was very irregular in bis work,
and would pa9s weeks with
out touching brush to canvas,
and then for a week paint
almost incessantly, lie always seemed
perfectly satisfied with his finished
productions aud never saw the
least justice in any criticisms that any
one ventured to make, and yet he was a
shrewd critic of others' work. He was
always lamenting that he was not fa
mous. A famous painter, he said, could
paint as be chose. I suggested that fa
mous painters chose to paint well, and
that fame was only to he attained by fol
lowing the methods of great masters. He
would vehemently declare that the
great masters might be hanged,
that no man was worthy ‘ the
name of artist unless be hail
something to say, and was brave
enough to say it in his own way. I found
it a pleasant pastime to sit and watch
Hobbs at his work He was never so ab
sorbed but that he could listen and talk,
and it was on these occasions that I began
to derive my first correct ideas on art, for
whatever Hobbs was in practice, in all
theory be was well nigh perfect. I can
see him now. pausing to turn and brand
ish his brush at me as he lays down his
One day, upon returning from my
morning walk 1 found Hobbs engaged
in painting tbe portrait of ay onng woman,
while an older one sat in a window work
ing upon some embroidery. I recognized
the latter as a Mrs. Anstein, the
wife of an old American resi
dent, and the former was introduced
as her niece, Miss Vernon, just out from
America Miss Vernon was very beauti
ful, with delicate Complexion, fair hair,
and dark blue eyea It was evident that
Hobbs and she had already become good
friends, and I was not long in comiDg to
the conclusion that, rapidly as he worked,
her image was being transferred to some
thing other than his canvas with still
greater rapiditv. She sat apparently all
unconscious that there was any other
than a purely business aspect to the sit
ting. Hobbs talked a great deal, and
made himself very entertaining, and I
thought the more so that Miss Vernon
seemed an excellent listener. She seemed
without the least pretense; frankly
confessed her ignorance of sub
jects with which many young w-'-nen
would have feigned acquaintance, and re
ceived the delicate compliments which
Hobbs ventured as he put in au eye or a
lock of hair as if she had no doubt of his
sincerity, but was a little afraid his judg
ment was not good.
Before tbe portrait was finished Hobbs
had become a frequent caller at Mrs.
Anstein's, and not long after be told me
one day of bis engagement to Miss
Vernon. As I had foreseen the likeli
hood of the result I was not surprised,
and congratulated him warmly, as I
thought it the best thing that could bap
pen to him. He said it was Miss Vernon s
wish tliat the engagement should not be
made public for a time
“ How do you propose to support a wife
when you find it so difficult to support
yourself?" I asked
“Oh* that’ll be all right, ” said ha
“I suppose you know she is poor?" I
“Yes,” said Hobbs. “What of that?
8o am 1;" and. and throwing his leg over
the arm of his chair, he surveyed the
room as if to see how it would do for Mrs.
After this he worked steadily and with
good success, and might have laid by
some money had he been endowed with
the least prudence, but he saved nothing.
1 did not despair, for I knew that Miss
Vernon had never been rich, and I heard
her described as a young woman of good
sense, so I thought she might easily ap
point herself financier.
One evening, about a month after his
engagement, Hobbs came in earlier
than usual, and 1 saw at once that
something had happened to disturb him.
He was pale and haggard, and his eye
avoided mine He dropped into a chair
and seemed plunged In deep thought 1
thought him ill and asked what was the
matter. “Nothing,” he said. When 1
went to bed I left him sitting there, with
his legs stretched out before him and
his head on his breast, and when I en
tered the room in the morning be was
there still looking as if he had not moved.
He arose, said “ Good morning. ” and,
going to the mantel, filled and lighted his

“l4»t night Mias Vernon told me that
the time had come for making our

Adulteration of Honey.
[Philadelphia Times. 1
The adulteration of food has been prac
ticed to such an extent 1 hat purchasers no
longer expect to get a pure article, even
when paying the highest prices. It is
generally believed that two thirds of the
milk sold in all our great cities is deprived
of half its cream; it is known that but
ter is made from beef fat and cotton seed
oil; maple syrups have lately been made
from most anything of a sweet nature,
and now it is stated that most of the
honey we eat is manufactured, and that
much of it has not even a drop of genuine
honey about it. This alleged honey was
first sold in this city some five or six years
ago. Its sale at first was scant, but for
the past two years it has become very pop
ular. and it is c laimed that there is now
but little else to be found in the market.
Some ol it is sold as manufactured honey,
though a great deal of it is dealt out to
unsuspecting purchasers as the natural
product of the honey bee.
The spurious kind is usually put up in
little square boxes which sell for from 25
to 30 cents a pound. It looks like honey
and it is said that it takes an excellent
judge to tell that it is a fraud on the bee
The comb is manufactured with such
skill that few can tell it from the genuine
article It is made from pa ratline or bees
wax, and the honey is blown into it by
machinery. Another kind is put up in
glass vessels like ordinary jelly packages,
the centre of which contains a piece- of
honeycomb, and the honey is made by
pouring about six j*rts of glucose around
one part of hooey in the comb. Some of
it is adulterated with glucose, some with
cane sugar, and others by heating ordi
nary sugar with an acid; 6ut it all resem
bias booty, and to a certain extent has its
flavor and odor.

The next morning broke bright and
clear enabled us to see exactly where
we were -in a large frame house not far
from the edge of a great hole in the
workl from 500 to 1,000 feet deep and
some nine miles in circumference.
Mauna Loa, to the right, swept up from
the plain 10,000 feet above us. Mauna
hea, with its snowy crown, rising still
higher, appeared in the northwest
scarcely farther off. The atmosphere
was clearer than crystaL Distances
on all sides . were to the eye
Rinazlngly diminished This is one
reason why ivilauea fails so much at
first, nature having done all her work on
a gigantic scale. A trial of distances on
foot soon determines this fact, and res[>ect
and wonder at the scene proportionately
increases. So perfectly distinguishable
are objects on the further bank of the
crater that the visitor is slow to believe
that the distance in a straight line is more
than three miles and that nine miles will
hardly give its circumference Surround
ing the house on all shies were deep fis
sures and holes in the earth, throwing out
scalding steam. Some of them were in
crusted with sulphur. Others on theii
banks condensed the steam into water,
Which when cool is \ery fine drinking.
After breakfast we prepared ourselves

for a guide, we were again courteously

for it, we started by ourselves for the
crater. The first descent was quite ab
rupt, but the path soon became less steep
and more circuitous, though uone the less
fatiguing, for the last half of the way
down the hank was a slippery, iudined
plane. I found it very wearisome, partic
ularly as we were then exposed to the con
cent rates! heat from the sides and base of
the crater. We found the walking firm
anti struck off directly across the center ol
the lake. The lava was of inky blackness
and as smooth as satin, and lay about us
in great coils, like ships' hawsers. Occa
sionally we came upon deep cracks am:
cavities of various sizes, partially covered
with a thin crust 'lhe surface, gener
ally, was porous for an inch or so in
depth, as if formed from froth or lava.
Great blocks, as perfectly quarried as i:
cut by a stonemason, lay strewn about u*
in great < onfusiou.
The ascent into the body of the crat< r
was over a rise of lave broken up or con
fusedly piled together. There was no

in traversing the crater in any direction,
beyond keeping a sharp lookout for the
numerous chasms into which the lava, in
cooling, splits up. We saw but few conet
that were active, beyond a slight smoke
or steam, and all the lakes or minor crater*
and canals were black and cold. Hot air
issued from a few crevices, but no othei
evidence of tire could be seen. The as
cent was very gradual until within half s
mile of the lake, where it became more

r. there was no danger or trouble be
yond a little more care in picking our
way. The chasms were easily junptd
oyer, or, if we found one wider and mori
suspicious looking than usual we avoided
it by a little detour. As we neared the
fountain of this great black sea cones ap
pea red dripping with sulphur and spout
ing steam and fire, and a dull roar, as of
a lion, greeted our ears A few
more steps ami we stood on the
brink of the great Lake iialemaumau.
It burst upon our visions with beautiful
effect, and we sat down and reveled in the
scene. It was not grand, nor terrific, nor
startling; it was lieautifuL I was disap
pointed. I had looked for fury, tempest,
and frenzy in this lake of fire. I found a
terrible composure Tbe surface of the
lake was incrusted with a dull, gray coat,
which tbe red lava almost instantly as
sumes on exposure to the air. But I was
soon relieved of my disappointment, f- 1
either the wind or its own inner agony
roughened its surface, ami the dull gray
c oat was cut up into rivers, lakes canals,
and streams of liquid lava, iuterpersed
with jets and fountains, the whole in con
tinued action. The entire lake was swel 1
ing and boiling with the intensity of its
tires ( rust after crust of the lava, like
huge masses of ice, would le rent
asunder, lifted up. and then disappear in
tbe fiery caldron beneath. Every minute
changed the outline. The surface of tbe
lake, assuming new forms and new action,
wore the changeable aspect of a kaleido
scope. A low, deep, hissing sound fell
upon my ears as the wind, which blew it
from us, occasionally lulled.
Words cannot do ustice to the wierd
beauty of the scene \\ e were in turns
silenced by deep admiration, or loud in
exclamations of delight, calling each
other's attention te some new action
which would be over almost as soon as it
could be noticed, so rapid were the
changes. As we were a)»out turning
away from this scene, so remindful of the
many horrors of Dante’s dream, a mighty
disturliancc began in tbe ceuter of the
lake. Its surface was upbeaved, and the
very mountains seemed to shake and
tremble with the mighty convulsion.
Slowly and deliberately, as if with a set
tied purpose, tbe movement began, and
then, with one tremendous spring, the
fountain slioi into the air a column of
blood red lava fully eighty feet in height
For a few seconds it hung in mid air. and
then, dissolving, fell back into tbe lake
with an awful, aweinspiring, fearful
sound, and wallowed slowly to tbe shore,
leaving the gray sea behind it lashed into
a bloody foam. We turned slowly away,
awed and impressed by this terrible evi
dence of the magnitude of the works of
nature and the omnipotent Maker of all

Keofmk (/ate City
We have received a long private and
personal letter from a prominent lowa
piohibitionist saying that a certain gen
tleman should not be nominated for the
governorship by tbe Republicans be
cause he is not a prohibitionist. The
case is a very clear one to our view.
The people of lowa said by a decided
majority, according to their forms of
law and state government and at a non
partisan election that they wanted a
prohibitory law of certain sub
stance. The Republican party being in
the majority and being the organism by
which the law had tooe made properly
pledged itself to carry that will into
law and did it. With that its repousi
bility ceased. In the platform in which
!t pledged itself to make that law it
said it only did so as a non-partisan
law demanded by tbe people in u non
partisan way. And it declared that it
madu the question no lest of Republi
canism The Republican partv cannot
honestly or honorably bleak that word.
It kept its word as to passing the law-,
by the same warrant it must keep its
pledge as to maintaining the no-par
isauship of the law and that it shall not
be a test of Republicanism. Ihe Re
publican party battled on the death
line to keep its word that the law
should !>e made on those conditions
Now no prohibitionist can honestly or
honorably go to the state convention
and claim that the party having at ihe
peril of defeat and death passed the
lion-partisan law he promises that it
shall lie as to the second part of its
declaration and make the law into a
teat of Republicanism. For tuie we do
nor propose to be a pat tv of aelf-stulti-
Ucaiion and duplicity. We were in
sistent that the part) should st,.;id by
the j>eople’s will and pass the law.
Now ihe law rests with the people.
The Republican jatrty should |>erniit
no test to be set up tor any man or
blare on its state ticket save: Is lie a
Republican? honest, uptight, capable,
suitable? We, for one, shall supj-ort
Heck for supreme judge, not I •era use
he is a prohibitionist; liecAnse he is a
Republican, honest, upright, capable,
suitable. We shall supp »rt Larrulwe
for governor, uot because lie is an anti
prohibitionist, hut ttccnuse he is a Re
publican. honest, upright, capable, suit
able. And after what Republicanism
lias done for prohibition, and after prte
hibition struck down the Republican
party m the nation in return for it last
year, we would rather have the icpiih
lican party in lowa broken into puces
than have it yield a point more than
we have indicated in this article.
A Sad Death.
In Philadelphia recently at a coro
ner’s inquest over (he I**l v ol a child,
the jury returned a verdict that death
was caused hy the administration of a
patent cough syrup, containing mor

in ten is free from this object ion. Aft

he endorses Heil Star Cough Cure as

from opiates, poisons and narcotics.
He regards it as most happy and val

Soma Really Queer Custom*.
The manners and customs of the
Masai, as desciilied by Air. Joseph
Thompson in the account of his recent
travels in Africa, are to put it in the
mildest language, most peculiar, and a
whole chapter is d< voted to the de
scription ot them. Their usual method
of salut.on on meeting is to spit in one
another's faces, and more copious the
expectoration ihe greater the friend
saip; aud Mr. Thompson, having l>een
voted a great medicine man, was ex
pected to heal diseases in this way but
so great was the demand on his sal
ivary organs that he could only satisfy
his patients by taking repented
draughts of water.
Equally strange is the custom of all
unmarried men and women living in
villages together. While the married
folks live hy themselves; these latter
are allowed to eat what they like, but
the unmarried ones may only eat meat
and drink milk. As soon as a man
marries lie ceases to lie a warrior, and
has to tend the herd of cattle, lie is
no more allowed to join in cattle raids,
or the extermination of his neighlsirs
which is continually going on, and
which seems to be the greatest delight
that the young Masai is capable of en
joying; and it is probably because they
would have to forgo the pleasures of
rapine and bloodshed that these amia
ble people decline entering into the
state of matrimony, which after all, is
a tn< re form, for virtue, as we under
stand it, is unknown to them.
They have certainly a kind of relig
ion hut very little even of that, and
seem to have no l>elief in a future, as

Cutting Glass with Scissors.
Many persons may not lie aware that
glass can be cut under water with
greatest ease, to almost any shajie, by
simply using a pair of shears or strong
scissors. In order to insure success,
two points must be attended to—first
and most iui|tortant, the glass must be
kept quiet level in the water while the
scissors are applied; and. secondly, to
avoid risk, it is better to begin the
cutting by taking of small pieces at the
corners and along the edges, and to re
duce the shape gradually to that re
quired, for if any attempt is made to
cut the glass to the shape, as we would
cut a piece of card 1 man!, it will lie most
likely to break just where it is not
wanted. Some kinds of glass cut much
better than others; the softer glass is
the best Tor this purpose. The scissors
need not depend on the state of the
edge presented to the glass. When the
operation goes on well, the glass breaks
away from the sissors in small pieces
in a straight line with the blades. This
method of cutting glass lias often been
of service, where a diamond has not
been at baud for cutting ovals and
segments, and though the edges are
not as smooth as might be desired for
sotuwpurposes. it will answer in many
cases. The two hints above given, if
strictly followed, will always insure

’offspring are relieved from disease is

ever made."
