Value of Tact.
'Omar Kayyam' in Kansas City Times.)
I know I am not attactive," said a friend
of mine.
You are too cold," said a friend of hers.
"You are both wrong," said L
So tney were. The first speaker could
never have persuaded to admit war down
in her heart that sho was not attractive. At
least I know that she was quite attractive.
Tho second made tbo blunder of supposing
that to bo attractive one must needs have
a heart big enough to hold all her beaux.
Not so. Heaven forbid 1 I have seen few
mea who wanted to be stood up like bisque
statuary or hung up like chronica among a
heart ful of like statues and chromos.
There is little doubt that most any girl of
average accomplishment, good appearance
and manner and the gift of common senre
may, if she set her head to it, receive any
amount of attention. A young lady was
speaking to me of the most famous belle St.
Louis ever had. "I was present," said he, "at
the first reception her mother gave her after
her graduation from a local school. Bhe
was a redheaded freckled faced little thing,
whose parentage gave her no extraordinary
prestige. 1 saw her steadily grow in favor
until she became a belle whose fame was
every where. She was not beautiful, nor yet
fascinating. She was stylish, though, and
agreeable. You must inquire of the men
why they liked her so much."
A swell St. Louis beau said he liked ber
and visited ber because she was such a
pleasant girl both to visit and escort to
parties. She talked of things which inter
ested him and knew how to act I asked a
girl of 20, who had twenty-four bona fide
proposals, most of thorn good ones, too, how
she contrived to be so attractive. She re
plied that she simply studied the likes and
dislikes of each particular beau and gov
erned herself accordingly. She was not
particularly bright, but when sbo entered a
parlor, however black had been the lowering
clouds of dull platitudes (excuse my
metaphor please) her sunshine banished them
instanter and she let everything into a rip
pling, silvery sort of pleasure right away.
I knew her when she was a little miss at
school. She was.neither pretty nor promis
ing. Poor girl! she married the man she
loved, a poverty stricken lawyer, but she
manages him yet, as she managed her ad
mirers, with the skill and finesse and success
of a perfect diplomat. Tact! tact! tact! I
wish The Times would put this word in big
type so tho girls could cut it out and paste it
on their hand glasses where they would see
it every hour in the day.
A Tankee Farmer's Tflfe.
Cassell's Magazine.
She has received a certain amount of in
struction at a public school, then marries
young, and begins her, to me, herculean
labors. It is her part to perform all the
daily household tasks with but seldom any
outside aid. She must make butter, milk
the cows, feed the chickens, and attend to
the kitchen garden, as well as to her special
pet flower-beds and vines. Than she har
nesses her horse and drives to a neighboring
town to barter (as no one else can) with ber
butter, eggs, and garden produce. If
anything is broken or out of order
in the house or farm she mends it, and, be
ing a woman of infinite resources, she may
even construct some of her own furniture or
paint her fence. Her "parlor' is adorned
with all the latest absurdities in the way of
worsted work or pressed bouquets, while her
store closet is well stocked with preserves,
and her garret hung with dried fruits. It is
probable that she has children and none are
more thoughtfully tended in all their needs,
be they physical, moral, or ornamental.
The clothing of the family, even to their
stockings and mittens, is her handiwork,
while occasionally a garment is made for one
of the village poor.
But where is her self-culture say you.
Ah! there is the mystery how and when is
it accomplished! And there is no denyin-r
the fact, a narrow, provincial education it
may be, Lut that is owing solely to her cir
cumscribed life.
If you were to enter a small, common
place, whitewashed farm-house in any of the
straggling New England villages, which ap
pear little else than a cluster of huts in a
wilderness to English eyes if you were so
bold as to enter in, and so fortunate as to
have an uninterrupted conversation with the
mistress of tho house, you would find her a
plain, probably faded, woman, clad in neat
calico, sharp-voiced, and sharp-visaged, per
haps, but gentle in manners, and displaying
as she talks a well-cultivated intelligence,
and more or less familiarity with literature
in all its branchos of history, philosophy,
science, and belles-lettres. You would find
her a member of the nearest library, and a
subscriber to all the leading periodicals.
But in order to make this a strictly truth
ful account, I mu-t add that she seldom
reads the newspapers, and is utterly devoid
of that knowledge of current affairs that dis
tinguishes particularly the women of New
York and Chicago. But then, consider how
precious to her is each moment of time,
and how far is she removed from the center
of life and civilization! Sho has no amuse
ments, no diversions, no trips away; noth
ing but the dull, everlasting grind. And
yet is she patient and never resisting from
ber round of necessary duties, and that, to
her, no less necessary one of self-culture.
Some one has beautifully said that "the
hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that
rocks tho world." The children of Priscilla
or, more correctly, "Sairey Ann" will
doubtless le rich, and some will call them
parvenus, perhaps; but as for her grand
children and great-gi Indchildren, what may
they not become!
The lrlncess of CTales.
London Cor. Boston Herald.
The princess of Wi Jes is adoted by the
English Conservatives and Radicals alike,
and it was a lucky day indeed for the heir
apj-arent when he took the sweet and high
minded daughter of the king of Denmark to
wife. Her popularity 13 rivaled only by that
of Mr. Gladstone, and it is even greater than
his, for London is hers, heart and soul, as
well as the province l To look at this pretty
and girlish woman no one would imagine
that she was 40 years of age and the mother
of several children, including two great
bovs. one of whom has just attained
his majority. Although her royal high
ness holds herself so well that, when
seated in ter carriage or in tho box of a
theatre she seems a tall woman, yet iu
reality, sho l petite. The princess dresses
her hair rather high and wears high heels.
She is always attired to perfection, and usu
ally in white or black in the evening and in
very quiet colors during the day, but her
costume at night, however staple, is set off
by tho most marnificent jewels, so that she
literally "blszss like a jeweled sun."
.H r royal highness is somewhat deaf, al
though not -onously so. The present writer
has seen ber many times in public, and h
always been impressed with the grace ana
delicacy of her type of beauty and the unaf
fected goodness that seems to surround her
like an atmosphere. The princess is always
cheered to the echo and fairly mobbed by
the enthusiastic public. I have seen her
seated in the royal coach, returning in state
from Buckingham palace to Marlborough
house, preceded by outriders, a dia
dem on her fair Lrow and gorgeously
attired; again, at a garden-party, accom
panied by her little daughters clinging to
the skirts of her gown, as she walked along
between the ranks of ladioj conrtesying and
men with their heads uncovered; again,
driving in Hyde park late in the afternoon
with tho little princt-'os, or sailing out to
the royal yacht anchored off the We of
Wight, the ribbons of her sailor-hat flutter
ing in the fresh breeze, her dress a simple
blue serge, and still, again, selling rosos for
charity at the fete held in the Horticulural
society's grounds in South Kensington.
The princess is a familiar, but always an
isolated figure in English daily life. The
people recognize in her all those virtues
which her life does so much to reveal, and
follow her good example in overlooking the
past and putting fait a in the future. Cer
tainly, moreover, there is no reason to com
plain of the present There are no scandals
in their beau chateau.
What CKildreii Should Eat.
tDrtrott Free Press.
people toink it perfectly right that
&iivren anoutl oo inane to eat evervuung
that is set beforo them; but in carrying out
this singular theory too often the gravest in
jury results. An eminent city clergyman
told me the other day that the mere sight of
liver cooked in any form made him ill.
When quite a little fellow his stern father,
who was one of the sort that would permit
no "nonsense," as he expressed it, with re
gard to children's likes or dislikes as far as
food was concerned, insisting that they
should not exercise any taste or choice in the
matter, required him to eat some liver which
had been put on his plate. There was some
thing about the particular piece of liver that
set the child against it, but ha was forced to
swallow the repulsive morsel, and over sinco
his stomach has rebelled even at the thought
of the gross piece of tyranny which wau
practiced upon him.
It is a sound rule for all of us that with
respect to food our likes and dislikos are Ui
best guide as to what is good for us, and it
is safe to oat upon the plan that whatever
we relish will prove on the average harm
less and wholesome, and whatever produces
disgust will prove, as a general thing, indi-f-estiblt.
A recent writer on this jxjint has
fully expressed my opinion in saying that
"nothing can be more wrong than to make
children eat fat, for example, when they
don't want it. A healthy child likes fat and
eats as much of it as he can. If ho shows
signs of disgust at fat that proves him to be
of a bilious temperamont, and he ought
never to be forced to eat it against his will
A good many of us have disordered diges
tion in after-life simply because wo were
compelled to eat rich food in childhood
which we felt instinctively is unsuitable
to us."
A Five-Dollar Bed-Boom.
Cor. Housekeeper.
When I moved on to the farm I found my
self in possession of a large and pleasant
span bed-room, but with neither furniture
nor money to furnish it However "where
there Is a will there is a way." I had a
black ingrain carpet, whole and as bright as
new, but so well worn that it would be ex
travagant to use it in a much used room. I
put that down and put up thin curtains of
dotted muslin, 8 cents a yard, headed them
with a pleating of themselves, above a nar
row band of cardinal cotton flannel, and
looped them back with the flannel; then I
hung a long, full partierre of the flannel at
the closet door, and as the room was papered
with cheap, but handsome paper, in dull
gold and black, it looked half-furnished al
ready. For 75 cents I bought a second hand bed
stead, strong and clean but oh! so cheap
looking! One of those with many slender
rounds. Two rickety old cane-eea tod chairs
were made strong with bright dainty cre
tonne. A tiny old wooden rocking chair wa
strengthened and provided with a plump
cretonne cushion. The stand of an old sen -ing
machine was easily converted into a lit
tle stand for toilet articles, with a shell
across where the large wheel has been, for
shells and corals. The large turned posts of
an old cord bed-stead made admirable legs
to a substantial little table for wash-bowl
and pitcher. Then I got white paint and
painted them all including the pin frame I
had ma le for a good sized looking glass.

dressed by letter or signing her name!
Cosstast Header.
When that calamity happens to Mrs. John
Smith (and to Mr. John Smith, too), she
should be addressed by letter as Mrs. Mary
Jane Smith. Some Women prefer to use
their own name in that way even duriu
their husbands' lifetime, but that i
rather evidence that they rebel again -i
'.he, present relations of men an
iromen, and that they do not entertain tt-e
respect and admiration for their husband
that is the basis of true matrimonial felicity
But in regard to signing her name, that i
different. After her marriage (at least u.itil
a second marriage) she should never sign '.ier
self anything but Mary Jane Smith, prcsuni
ing that to be ber name. For a marrici
woman to sign herself Mrs. John Smith i
Mrs. anything else is pure ignorance. If tiie

Binge Oat of Fashion.
IKew York Graphic.
"No, it is not the thing to wear rings,'
Eoxnpped a fashionable young wcsian tin
other day. "Whyl Oh, I don't know; that
intangible, capricious something to which
we all bow has so decreed it, and that is
why enough. Perhaps, if there must be a
reason, it is because we live in gloves almost,
and rings are not comfortable beneath them,
or perhaps we are saving our fingers for the
ring, that its glitter and significance may be
mora apparent. The fashion is a sensible one
whatever its source, for a pretty hand
doesn't need rings, and the defects of an
ugly hand are only accentuated by their
use," the first part of which wise remark was
fully justified by the speaker's own white,
tapering, ringless fingers.
Women Who Detest Marriage.
Woman's Cor. Pittsburg Dispatch.
Men marry the rattle-brains of society.
They choose the pretty, good-for-nothing
girli, for that is the kind they like; they run
after and marry the liveliest girl at a picnic
or a ball, though she may be a "holy terror"
at home; they rush after the belle and the
heiress, though she may be selfish and
spoiled, silly; they pass by the jewels and
take "the snide." for that is all they know,
and then, like Adam, they blame the fruits
of their own folly on the woman. Twos
ever thus.
But, brethren we wish to break it to you
gently there are women right hero at home
who have heir own money to spend as they
please, who have their own pleasant homes
and congenial occupations, who can, if the
fancy seizes them, pack their trunks and
take a jaunt to New Orleans, slip off to
Washington for a few weeks, take in the
cream of New York, or the balmy airs of
Florida; in short, have a royal time in any
way they choose, who call no man master,
and who "wouldn't marry the best man that
ever stepped in shoe leather."
This will be a shock to you, beloved
brethren, but is none the loss true. Women
find pleasure and comfort and happiness out
side of matrimony. It is not flattering to
men, but there is a growing disinclination to
marriage among women. They are growing
more critical as to the measure of a man.

Stoutness of English Women.
The Argonaut
An English woman of 40 who is not fat
whether she bo fair or not Is a rarity, and
when ono remembers how English women
live there is no roason to wonder at it The
climate does not causa it it is the inordinate
sating that causes it They hava their rolls
and coffee on rising, and often before rising;
breakfast at 10, lunch at 3, tea at 5, dine at
7, and, after all that, have supper before re
tiring. No wonder that they expand to a
size which gives a man, as Hawthorne says,
"two wives instead of one." But tho custom
of so many meals is dying out, and there is
st lost hope that English women will grow
no stouter, as they grow older, than their
slighter cousins on this side of the creek.

The Paris Charivari has a very clever
picture of the divorce problem in an alleged

figures of a man and woman standing at

joined by a band which so connects them
that they cannot be separated except by cut
ting it apart On this band are struug sev
eral children, who, if the band is cut, will
dip off the loose ends and fall down. The
problem is to cut the band without jeopardiz
ing the position of the children. It points to
moral vry graphically, and one worth
considering by the community in connection
with our frequent and easy divorce.

An Invention by Sir. Barnum Something
IJke Perpetual Motloa.
Bridgeport Oor. New York Sun.
It will be interesting to many thousands
of people in this pre-eminently mechanical
age to read a description of a machine in
vented and constructed by Mr. P. T. Bar
num that is fairly entitled to be called a
perpetual motion machine. This wonderful
little machine ran tirelessly until most
unfortunately burned with Mr. Bar
num's handsome residence, Iranistan,
twenty years ago. Many of Mr. Barnum's
friends and visitors of sheas days marveled
why the machine was never put on exhibi
tion in his then popular museum in New
York. The reason given at that time was
that the people could never be made to be
believe either that Mr. Barnum invented or
made the machine, or that it was made to
run with such simple means, furnished by
nature itself. Many Inventors had visited
Mr. Barnum, and many others had written
to him urging him to buy machines that
they claimed could be described in the pub
lic prints as perpetual motion, and, indeed,
Mr. Barnum purchased more than one of
such machines for his museum, but he could
never bring himself to believe or admit that
a machine could net be made that would
run from its finish until worn out, and with
out trick.
In fact, he urged twenty eight years ago,
when mechanics was in its infancy, and tha
papers were constantly discussing the prob
lem of perpetual motion, that such a ma
chine could bo made, and made to go per
petually. His first idea, as explained to the
writer, was to utilize in a convenient and
simple form the power of expansion and
contraction in metals, and he claimed that
the difference in the natural temperature
between night and day would be sufficient,
if properly applied, to run his contemplated
machine from the moment'it was finished
until its motion had worn itself out
The base of Mr. Barnum's machine was
made of glass, something in the shape of a
cill box. eight inches in diameter by throe
inches deep. This base was filled with quick
silver. There was an opening in tha canter
and top of tha bass about halt an inch in di
ameter. A glass tube of the same diameter
as the hole, and six inches long, was in
serted In the middle of the hole, so that when
the heat of midday caused the quicksilver
to expand, it would rise up through the tuba
and force a piston upward. On the top of
the piston rod was placed about five pounds
of lead. When the temperature cooled the
metal contracted In the base and tube, and
the piston was made to follow the. quicksil
ver in tho tube. That gave the piston a re
ciprocal motion. Gear wheels connected
with the vertical piston rod gave high speed
to the four-inch fly wheel, and the machine
was complete. A movement of 1-1000 of
an inch of tha jiiston rod gave
a motion to the periphery of tha
fly wheel of seventeen inches to the minute,
which was, quite enough to show that tha
machine was in motion. If my recollection
is not at fault, the fly wheel was secured to
its shaft by slight friction only, so that at
the exact time of change of motion of tha
piston rod tho wheel would slip on its shaft
and continue its motion until the motion of
its shaft was reversed, when in due time the
wheel would stop and instantly reverse its
motion, and so on. Of course other mechan
ical devices could be applied in this connec
tion which would cause the wheel to rotate
one way, no matter which way the piston
rod traveled.
The machine ran constantly from the mo
ment it was discovered until it was de
stroyed by fire, four years after. Mr.
Barnum thinks that tho future clock will be
so constructed that the changes in tempera
ture between day and night will wind it,
and wind it gently, without trouble or ex
pense. AFetrifieu ,

While digging a well in Rome, Ga., a
workman found, at the depth of sixty-four
feet down in the bowels of tha earth, a pet
rified oyster. A legend exists to tho effect
that a church-supper held in Rome twenty
five ago was almost a failure on account of
its oyster escaping from a back window and
taking to the woods. It is supposed that
this petrified bivalve is tha tha miss

by a mole between its shoulder-blades. The
oyster must have been terribly frightened
to burrow so deep into tha earth.

Twas Commencement eve, and the ball
room belle
In ber dazzling beauty was mine that
As the music dreamily rose and fell.
And the waltzcrs whirled in a blaze of
I can see them now in the moonbcam'i
Across the street on a billowy floor.
That rises and falls with tha merry dance,
To a music that floats in my heart one
A long half hour in the twilight leaves
Of tha shrubbery sho, with coquettish
And dainty arms in their flowing sleeves,
A dream of satins, and love, and lace.
Li the splendor there of her queenly smile,
Through her two bright eyes I could sec
the glow
Of cathedral windows, as up tho aisle
We marohod to a music's abb and flow.
All in a dream of Commencement eve!
I remember I awkwardly buttoned a glovi
On the dainty arm in its flowing sleeve.
With a broken sentence of hope and love.
But tho diamonds that flashrd 'in her wavy
And the beauty that sho:ie in her faultiest
Are all I recall as I slrugghd there,
A poor brown fly hi a web of lace.
Yet a laughing, coqasttish face I sea,
As the moonlight fails on tha pavemen'
I can hear ber laugh in the melody
Of the waltz's music across the way.
And I kept the glove so dainty and small,
That I stole as she sipped her lemonade.
Till I packed it away, I think, with all
Of those traps I lost in our Northern raid.
Bat I never can list to that waltz divine,
With its golden measure of joy and pain,
But it brings like the flavor of some old wine
To my heart the warmth of the past again.
A short flirtation that's all, you know;
Some faded flowers, a silken tress,
The letters I burned up years ago
When I heard from her last in the Wilder-
I suppose, could she see I am maimed and
She would soften tha scorn that wai
changed to hate
When 1 chose the burs of the gray and gold
And followed the South to its bitter fate.
But here's to the lads of the Northern blue,
And here's to tha boys of the Southern
And I would that the Northern star but knew
How the Southern cross is borne to-day.
Peppered by a Fonr-Gun Battery on Shore
Within an Inch of Kingdom Come
Capabilities of an "Infernal
Machine's" "Hatoon."
Ex-Paymaster Pearson In Philadelphia Times.
We started for Vicksburg in company
with the Jacob Strader, the largest steam
boat on the lower river. The Strader was
burtheued with thousands of tons of powder
and fixed ammunition for tho army. To
gether we formed, perhaps, the most explo
sive convoy that ever sailed tho Mississippi.
The holds were crammed with powder and
percussion shell; powder was piled on the
main decks aft the furnaces and covered
with tarpaulini to keep out the sparks.
Lower and upper guards and cabins were
stacked with cartridges for small arms.
43 we glided down stream Capt Birch
called ine to the upper deck and introduced
ma to the queerest looking "infernal ma
chine" we had yet encountered. Belligerent
cranks were constantly bringing to the naval
authorities some new invention for destruc
tion of the human species "to be tried." As
for four years the Confederate states furn
ished subjects for these experiments, they
should bo entitled to a bill in equity against
the inventors for a share of tha profits.
This thing placed in charge of Capt Birch
was a sort of infantry platoon on wheels a
rank of rifle-barrels ranged parallel and
mounted like a boat howitzer. By percus
sion the whole platoon was simultaneously
discharged in "onetime and one motion."
Birch told me he had reason to fear that the
Confederates were aware of the coming of
our convoy, and that somewhere on the
route to Vicksburg they might waylay us
and try to blow us up. In case opportunity
offered he wished me to take charge of the
"infernal machine" and report upon its capa
bilities. We charged the "platoon" and
blazed away over the river a few times to
get elevation and range; then loaded and
left it ready for emergency.
Next morning about 7 o'clock, as we were
steaming down the river, I had just rolled
over for another snooze, when I was aroused
by a crash through the sides of the ship,
together with a rattling report of light artil
lery. In a moment came a kick at my door,
with the words: "Hallool Get up! We're
in a fight I" I bounced out, and being ready
harnessed, excepting coat and boots, ran for
the hurricane deck and "infernal machine."
We were passing through "Cypress Bend,"
and things around looked interesting.
On shore, abreast the narrowest of the
channel, was a four-gun battery of field
places, manned by about 300 Confederates,
all peppering away like a fourth of July.
About 100 yards ahead was the Strader.
She had been the target of the first volley
and escaped damage. The Gen. Lyon came
next, and here the enemy had batter luck,
patting all four of the shot.of their second
volley through us. It is scarcely necessary
to mention that our cargo was unscathed.
Had any part of it been struck this chapter
would have been writtea by somebody else
Next after the Lyon came- the transport
New Kentucky, loaded with troops and
mules. The third round of the battery blew
ber up. She drifted and lodged upon a sand
bar and lay there helple-s, enveloped in a
cloud of steam, while the battery poured
shot into ber as fast as the guns could be
served. The men not busy with the field
pieces amused themselves with small arms.
Many were perched in the small trees astrad
dle of tha limbs, whenoj they kept up a
lively shower of buckshot and little buUeta,
But they fired too high.
Alongside our lee was tha gunboat Signal.
Capt Birch suggested that she engage the
battery and rescue the disabled transport.
which was being roughly treated. Tha com
mander of the Signal objected that, being a
"tin-clad," he could not go within range
without endangering his own boilers.
"If you won't do it, said Birch, "theu,,by
G , I willl"
We rounded to and went for the battery.
Tha long thirty-two pounder on the fore
castle was in charge of an old man-of -wars-man
and gunner, Acting Ensign John
Powell. As we neared the Confederates he
sent a shell which struck in the river bank
beneath them. Another quickly followed
and burst in the midst of the convocation
around the guns. It caused a "scatterment"
and they began to limber up.
Meanwhile the "infernal machine" was
tested. Aimed into the tree tops, it fired a
whole platoon. I had squatted down behind
It to aim, and, intent on the effect of the dis
charge, forgot to keep clear of tho recoil. I
picked myself up with a sore bead, for
which I was compensated by witnessing the
comical style in which the occupants of the
tree tops tumbled out It reminded me of
old-time black bird shooting. The platoon
was again got into line of battle and tired
another blizzard with good effect, while tha
old thirty-two pounder put in some mora
notices to quit, so persuasive that our foes
were soon in full retreat across the beni,
affectionately followed by our kind adieus
so long as we could see them.
Tha steamer New Kentucky was rescued
and taken in tow. It then bahooved us to
hasten on and pass the other side of the bend
before the battery reached it to intercept us.
Since we had force enough it would, per
haps, have been better and safer to have
landed and captured the guns than to risk
their bad marksmanship again. Fortun
ately we got ahead of them and escaped a
repetition of their attentions.
One of the party of hostiles was subse
quently captured, and from him we learned
that tha shell so appositely planted among
them from the Lyon killed and wounded six
teen men of the battery. To how muoh
credit tha "infernal machine" was entitled is
uncertain. Judging by tha infernal energy
with which it kicked over its engineer It
ought to have slaughtered all there was left
Our loss was trifling, our escape miracu
lous. Of the shots which struck the Lyon
two passed through the flues close in (root,
the others just behind her boilers. One
actually knocked oft the, button of tha steam
atasa, Adlvereenco ol ana inch, either
wav. wouiu nave Deen obstruction v) tg At
tire convoy. It seemed as it rToviaenco naa
purposed an example of "upon what slender
threads hang everlasting things." The loss
of those cargoes of ammunition might have
materially changed results at Vicksburg.
Had our assailants succeeded in blowing us
up it would have been a rich joke on them
selves. We were not thirty yards distant
when thev struck us, and had we "gone off"
there would not have been a grease spot left
of them.
Not Jn her eyes that such eloquence speak,
Not in the blush of ber velvety cheek.

WLy the Children of Montreal Are Wiser
Than the Children of Chicago.
Chicago Herald.
The children of Montreal are wiser in
their generation than the children of Chi
cago. In a hard winter, and the last three
winters have all .been of that description;
we hug stoves and breathe a vicious, gas
laden atmosphere, or, under the necessity of
passing from lodgings to office, we pack our
selves in perambulating refrigerators, pay
ing 5 cents for the privilege, and curse the
weather with frosted breath and chattering
teeth. The snow is hern in abundance. We
regard it a nuisance. Lake and pond are
sheets of crystal We cut them up anl
store them for the purpose of enriching the
ice merchant and impairing our digestion
in midsummer.
We have no joy in tha season. We skate,
it is a true on rollers with a smooth floor
and the thermometer at GO. We are out
doors at times, but only because business
compels the movement In Montreal, on
the contrary, ice and snow are welcome.
Prepared for the severity of winter with
sensible and adequate clothing the Canadian
finds keen enjoyment in the bracing winds.
The blood is not frozen in his veins. It tin
gles In his cheeks as he exercises heartily in
the open air. He adapts himself to the sit
uation. He masters it The blast before
which wa shrink he defies. The snow which
lies in bis pathway he overcomes with a de
vice borrowed from tha Indian and walks
the frozen crust as easily as we may
pass over the shaven lawn. Gravi
tation becomes bis courser as he
sweeps exultantly down the mountain
sides, improving upon the coasting which
Americans leave to boys, and Chicagoans,
who don't know what an elevation means,
cannot quite understand. Brave in furs and
woolens be guides tha bell-laden horses that
whisk his cutter through the cheery streets.
He builds ice palaces as temples to the god
of winter, whom ha finds more genial than
even the divinity of tlie grape. He is abroad
in the blasts, and every breath of the pure,
frosty air is an inspiration.
The valley of the St Lawrence, it may be
said, oounts with certainty upon a steady
winter of ice and snow, whereas in the upper
lake region the season is variable, and we
prepare rather for an open than a severe
winter. Yet severity is the commoner ex
perience and we ought to take a lesson from
the Canadians in preparing for and posi
tively enjoying it Improved health and
hardihood lie that way.
John Brown's Colic
London Oor. New York Tribune.
Since John Brown's name recurs so often
in writing about the royal family, I may re
peat la passing the story brought freshly to
mind by the recent death of Dr. Marshall
That excellent man held tha post of physician-in-ordinary
to the queen. The office is
one which required him to be always on
duty and always within calL After many
years of unbroken service he was allowed a
vacation tha year the queen went to Baveno,
and occupied Mr. Henley's villa, on the
shores of Lago Maggiore. She took with her
Sir William Jenner, who has long been her
extraordinary or consulting physician.
John Brown, of course, was of the party.
Not long after they arrived John was at
tacked by soma ailment, which was, I be
lieve, painful, but, to the medical mind,
trivial. Rumor, concerning herself as she
doe with the slightest matters relating to
great people, said that John had the colic
Whatever it was, J,obn was not satisfied
with the services of tha first physician in
England. He had no confidence in Sir Will
iam Jenner. His faith in medicine was
given to Dr. Marshall, and to him alone.
He Insisted that Dr. Mumhull should be
sent for, and sent for tha poor man was, by
telegraph, and had to abandon his hard-won
holiday and journey across Europe at the
bidding of this Highland gillie, whose chief
complaint was whisky. He made the jour
ney and arrived only to find John Brown
well again, and to be abused for not hav
ing come mora quickly.
Scheming seems to be tha order of the day.
Everybody sits down and Invents schemes
whereby he can defraud Us neighbor and
reap a benefit unto himself. Especially the
bar-room schemer Is an object of notice.
Tha latest dodge in the bar-room line was
worked on a saloonkeeper the other night
A seeming cripple entered tha saloon, limped
up to tha bar and asked for a glass of beer.
While tha saloonkeeper was drawing the
bear with bis back turned to the customer,
the latter lifted bis cane and laid it on a
SO cents piece lying on tha sideboard. To
the astonishment of a bystander tha coin ad
hered to tha cans, and the customer, seizing
the coin, made a bee line for the door. The
astonished bystander and the enraged bar
keeper chased the cripple, who revived the
old miracle and suddenly became whole, for
a half mile without success. The cripple
had outdone tha negro who had tar on his
heel at a penny pitching match and had
placed wax on the end of his cane.

Its Organisation, Methods, and Itesulte,
Both Material and Spiritual Great
Success In Many Farts of tha
World "Charity."
Uiew York MaQand Expros&J
The Salvation army, up to the present
time, has not been a success in the United
States. There are good reasons for this,
some of which are obvious enough, while
others lie a little below the surface. How
ever that may be, it is certain that the Sal
vation army has won for itself, In its twenty
years of warfare, a recognized place among
the religious forces of the worlX They
have now in the United Kingdom 637 corps
and 1,011 officers; in France and Switzer
land, 15 corps and 53 officers; in
Sweden. 4 corps and 17 officers;
in Canada, 71 corps and 326 offi
cer!; in India, 11 corps and 55 officer; In
Australia, 77 corps and 133 officers; in New
Zealand and Tasmania, SO corps and 60
officers, and in the United States, S3 corps
and 1SS otllcora. Besides these, there are
44 little soldiers' oorps. During tha year
033 meetings were held weekly that la to
say, 43,516 meetings in all with an average
attendance each weak of 41, es? parsons.
Three hundred and three villages in the
United kingdom are regularly occupied by
army corps and 100 are occasionally visited.
This, of course, is entirely outside the main
work, which is in the cities.
The balance-sheet of the army for 18S4,
just published, shows receipts of T4,663
pounds sterling, and expenditures te nearly
the simi amount Of this 10,319 pounds
sterling was paid to tha general
spiritual fund for carrying on meetings,
paying officers, etc.; 10,"47 pounds sterling
went to tv) trainlng-homes. and SJ,14o
pounds sterling was put into the building
fund. The army never goes ia debt Its
officers work for very small wages, aad
some of them serve at their own expense.
Tho organization of the army is thorough.
Its general. William Booth, wields an au
thority almost absolute. He Is assisted in
his executive duties by a staff of about 190
officers, who conduct tha general business of
the army in London. The chief of staff Is
the general's eldest son, Mr. W. Bramwsll
Booth. The Booth family, indeed, appear
prominently in the list of oflleers. The
general's wife is the principal writer of sal
vation literature. Several sons perform
staff duty. Two daughters are among the
most earnest and effective leaders.
Tho methods of the army are tetembly
well known. They have processions, headed
by bands, which march through tha streets
and try to draw a crowd to hear street or
hall preaching and singing. They hold
meetings, very much like old-fashioned re
vival meetings, in tha open air, in
halls, houses, barns, or wherever
they can. Their objeo Ja to
reach the masses, and they adopt tha
means they consider best adapted to that
end. The soldiers wear a distinctive uni
form or badge, which is often a great cross
to them, but which, they claim, aids thess
very much in mora than one way. It teadi
to keep the soldiers steady in their profes
sion. It draws attention, and is often tha
means ot leading people, to ask for laforsna
tion and direction. It helps the esprit du
corps binds the soldiers more olosely to
gether In comradeship.
Salvation army soldiers do not drink nor
use any narcotics or stimulants. Their aim
as it is set forth In their publications and
speeches is to lead holy lives. They are per
fectionists, and so far as can be gathered
from their utterances, their doctrine, though
not formulated, does not differ much from
the orthodox faith as held by tho leading
Protestant churches.
The growth of the work on their hands
has compelled the leaders to organize vari
ous auxiliary societies and institutions. A
"Rescue home" cares for fallen woman. A
discharged prisoners' home, an orphanage,
an''- perhaps most important of all, a train
ing home, are carried on under army super
vision. At the training horns cadets are re
ceived and instructed, by precept and prac
tice, until they are considered competantfor
promotion. All officers must go through
this preliminary training.
It wlU have been noticed, in the list of
corps in different parts of the world, that
the results are greatest in England and
TWHsh colonies. In addition to tha figures
already given as indicative of the army's
growth, it may be mentioned that the
corner-stone of a large and handsome bar
racks, was laid last year at Melbourne, Aus
tralia, by the chief secretary of the colony
of Victoria, Mr. Graham Berry; that tha
work of the army in Australia has received
the hearty approval of such men as 8U
Henry Porkes; that during tha year a grand
celebration in the Melbourne exhibition
building was attended by 10,000 people, and
a great congress in New Zealand called to
gether 6,000 more. In Canada, the Salva
tion headquarters at Toronto is one of tha
show building oftheolty. In Btocfch-ilm,
Sweden, a building containing two halls,
one of which seats 1,200 and the other 3,00
people, was erected by a Swedish gentleman
and given to the army outright
So much for the material prosperity of
the army. As to its spiritual work, perhaps
no better description can be given than that
of one who has closely watched tha work in
"Nleht after night I saw in that little hall
tho people who avowedly never Jjo to any
church or chapel, and talking with some ot
the most ruffianly in tha after-maettng,
found that they cams at first from a "row
or a 'lark,' and came again, because taatfaV
low talked sense,' or because they liked the
singing. I saw some ot them In tha first
meetings dirty and ragged and nelsy, ana
in the last ones with clean faces and hands,
mended coats, and quiet, orderly behavior.
The Salvation army does civilise these man
a little in cases where it fails to con
vert them. In the open-sir meetings, 1
saw slatternly, evil-looking women with ban
arms and beads, and heard vile oaths from
their lips mingle with the cry of babes la
their arms. Poor souls I They hated tha
little ring ot singers because they could look
happy in their lite, and cursed them out ol
tho depth of misery such as I had nsvei
looked upon before. I saw embodied there all
the evil and vice of which I had ever heard.
I learned how hate and malice can express
itself in look, word, and deed. I understand
how intoleratod shame and wickedness an
of any manifestations ot goodness, and wits
it all I learned slowly tha secret of thi
'Salvation look.' It meant charity, and it
could only come from an entire surrender of
the soul to the service ot God in saving other

"I have carefully estimated and hava
found that 25 per cent of tha messages sent

said Capt George Stone, on 'change.
"That is by tho men who step into your

Twenty-five per cent seems like a large and
liberal estimate, but I am convinced that it
is not too great In fact some men dont

Dr. Hammond is dramatizing his novel

is to cut out all that is not essential to

EmmUUbwj, Mdn June, 10, 1830.
Four years ago last February I took a heavy
cold, and. being naturally week In my lungs, ft
soon settled there. I soon hid all the symptoms
or Consumption conirb. nixhuweats, pain In my
breast and sides, and wis eo weak as to be confined
to my bed a good deal of the time. My disease
was pronounced to be Consumption by all the
phTiidans I employed, and I have no doubt that
It was, for the disease is hereditary In my family,
three ofmy sisters having died of It. Iwsssoslck
that I was confined to the house for nearly a year.
At list, by the advice of my wife, I was Induced to
use the medicines of Dr. Schcnck, of Philadelphia.
I began to gain in strength very eoon after I began
to use them, and eventually wis entirely cured.
When I commenced to take them I only weighed
one hundred and twenty pounds; my present
weight Is one hundred and sixty pounds, sad I
have excellent health ell the time. I have never
had a doubt but that Dr. Schenck's medicines
saved my life. I make this statement for the
benefit of those who are afflicted with lung disease,
as I thoroughly believe in the great curative pro
parties of these medicines.

During the past two years my mother and
brother have died of Consumption. I was myself
auite unwell most of this time, and when, shortly
after their death. I was attacked with cough and
severe hemorrhages. I naturally concluded that
I was destined to go with the same disease. Itm
mediately consulted a physician, who made a spe
cialty oflungdlseases. After txsmlnlngme.hcssld
that he thought my lungs were sound, and that I
would soon recover. In less thsnaweek after this
I had another severe hemorrhage. Thinking that
my physician had made a mistake In my case, I
consulted another doctor. He thought my lungs
affected, and prescribed tor me for a long time. I
got ne better nnder his treatment, but generally
worse. My cough was very bad, my appetite en
tirely gous; I had severe pain in my right side,
and for months I did not sleep mora than two or
three hours In a night. My tongue wsa heavCy
coated and I hid a bad tacts In my Bwutfi. I hid
the heidieha slmost all the Ume.
Idling that something must be done, I St last
concluded to consult with Dr. Sehenck, the physl
elan who, I think, I hava good reason to believe,
to be the best In the treatment of lang disease. I
went to his oDce In Boston, and wss evsmlned.
Be found my left lung quit sadly diseased, and
my llvsr seriously affected. He told ma that I
could be cured If I would follow his directions.
Of course I consented to do so. asd I vary soon
saw that my confidence In hie ability was well
placed. I took the Mand'rtka Pills, Seaweed Ton's
and Pulmonic Syrup, ill at one Ume, es directed by
him, and within osa month my worst symptoms
were gone. I went to sea the doctor on his next
visit to Boston, which wss one month after the
first time I sew him. and ha said "Only continue
with the medicine end yon will surely get weUV"
I did so, and kept on gaining In every way unta

Since my recovery I have not lost a dsya tuna,
except when I have made friendly visits to tha
doctor at his Boston offlea. My cough Is gone, my
appetite Is good, I have no headache pr pain .fa
my side : I sleep better then I ever did In my life,
and my lungs are apparently healed, as I hava so
hemorrhage!. .... . .
These are tha reasons why I believe mend re
commend Dr. J. H. Sehenck and his medicine.
He didlustrwhit he said he would do for me. and
I believe that I owe my Ufa to his medicines and
