Y., Aug. 9, 1888. A Springfield party had a pleasant but warm trip, last Friday, over the Erie rente. via Marlon, SlansBeld, Akron, Meadvllle and Corry, to Lakewood. At Akron we found that a tine rain had fallen. The streets were actually muddy, and tbe air was delightfully cooL We passed through several showers, farther on. At Cortland, Ohio, twelve miles from the Tennsjlvanla line, one of our cylinder heads blew out and although nobody was harmed, we had to send back to Kent for an engine, and were delayed over an hour. At Lakewood we found the already famous new Kent House, which has arisen from the ashes of tbe old Kent, burned last October. The proprietors, Messrs. Sllney and Frisbee, have, with a wonderful degree of enterprise and push, erected an Immense five-story building. In the Queen Anne style of architecture, and the only thing which preplexes one is tbe question whether it is more beautiful In front or In the rear or on the sides. The office .. stretches from front to rear and is one of tbe finest rooms of the sort ever seen. The stairways in the center, reaching from the basement to the roof, are models of beauty and convenience. The great feature of the bouse however. Is the dining-room, on the first floor, which extends from side to side of the structure, and which, with the adjoining ordinary and private dining room, actually seats, at one time, eight hundred people. Our Sprlng deld party enjoyed a good night's rest and a most charming breakfast Saturday morn lnit. and the fine appearance and the im mense magnitude of the dining room In which we ate added to our pleasure. Then we had the additional pleasure of meeting Mr. and Mrs. Frank J. Webb and son, and Mr. Will Babbitts, of the Springfield Na tional Bank. Lakewood la the society resort of Lake Chautauqua, and the two large hotels and tbe scores of very beautiful cottages are filled with tbe best class of society people from Cincinnati, Pittsburg, Buffalo, New York, Chicago and other American cities. The Lake View House has been materially enlarged since last year, and Is already pretty well filled. Wo came cp to Chautauqua on the steamer Nightingale. Arriving here, we dined at the Hotel Athenaeum, and after listening to a lecture on the "School for Scandal," by Talmadge, went over, by steamboat, rail and back, across the lake and down over the hills, to Westfield, New York, a beautiful town which Is rapidly becoming the commercial as it is the geo graphical center of the new Italy of the north, for, in addition to Its old-time and famous applo orchards, their region of country, on. tbe Lake Erie slope. Is covered with thrifty, teeming, vineyards, for a Urip of thirty or more miles, along the lake shore, from North East, Penn sylvania, down, eastward, to Silver Creek, New York, and from fie shore of the lake up, southward almost to the summit of the graceful and pictur esque hills. Here Concord grapes are grown by thousands of tons, and shipped by the carload to Springfield, to Cincinnati, to Chicago, and eastward, westward and southward, to all parts of the country. Tbe Concord has illustrated the theory of the survival of the fittest, for it has outlived andouterown all competitors and Is ac knowledged to be the best all-round grape in the market The vines are loaded with them this year, and are now of nearly full site. The grape industry has not reached its ultimate dimensions, for thousands of acres has been recently planted. A crop is gathered in three years from tbe setting out of tbe plants, and tbe life of a vine yard is perfected. The original cost of bringing an acre of grapes to Its first crop is from 75 to S80, and four tons to the acre is a fair crop. Six tons Is a possi bility, and usually results from ample fer tilizing and careful-cultivation. The grapes sell at S40 to over $50 a ton, giving a re turn of 3160 to S200 to tbe acre for the first year of bearing. The entire product of this new Italy is usually sold to be eaten, very little of it being used for man ufacture into wine. The Chautauqua Farm and Vineyard, of Westfield. X. Y., a fine quarto weekly, is'the organ of the grape interest Dr. Talmage preached a tremendous ser mon to an immense audience, in the great amphitheater Sunday morning, and the Kepcbuc showed Its enterprise In repro ducing the sermon entire In Its Issue of Monday evening. At Chautauqua now we have Mrs. Bar tholomew and her niece. Miss Flynn, of west High street; Mrs. Forrest and Miss Jennie Crossly, of our public schools; Miss Alice Guthrie, of Lagonda avenue, and others. Of the new features at Chautauqua, this year, the reconstructed and enlarged model of Jerusalem, under a beautiful Oriental pavilion, is prominent It was constructed during the last winter, by the original Chautauquan. Dr. Wythe, at a cost of 82, 500 The "Park of Palestine" is also a new feature, as It has been entirely rebuilt J-y Dr. Wythe. Fifteen hundred cords of stone have been used In erecting Its moun tains and hill sides, and Galilee and the Di-ad Sea are now lying In basins of craeut, their water being clear and beauti ful. The park Is now accurate In Its topo graphy and general features, having been laid out from tbe recent surveys of the Palestine Exploration society, and it Is now f of great interest and utility to Biblical a d other scholars. The regular Fifteenth Annual Chautau-A-hembly was officially opened In the am phitheater Tuesday evening, August 7th. Bishop Vincent presided, as a matter of rour e, and presided ably and satis fictomy. In the nature of things he couldn't help it Some of the addresses of the occasion contained very significant points. Iter. Dr. Harder, a professor at Yale, spoke of the Chautau qua summer college, with Its 30 professors and 500 students, and of tbe Chautauqua now In session near Atlanta, with 20 pro fessors and 200 students, and he declared that the Chautauqua Idea was just as applicable to the higher l. rms or education as to the more simple, adding this: "The Chautauqua idea has cjitne to affect, and to help, and to influence the higher forms and the higher kinds of educational work in America. Rev. 'Dr. J. S Ostrander, of Brooklyn, spoke of tbe original Chautauqua, with sixty other Chautauqua assemblies, revolving, as satel lites, around hrr. Prof. H. B. Adams, of Johns Hopkins university, of Baltimore, made this very Interesting utterance: t 'To the Chautauqua Assembly, mother of the Chautauqua University, the Johns Hopkins University also brtngeth "greet ings as to an elder sister. By the extraor dinary age of this older sister now cele brating, I believe, her fourteenth birthday, and by the wonderful youth of the Johns Hopkins University now fair ly entering its teens, I am re minded that the older university, in Italy, Bologna, is now celebrating her eight hundredth anniversary, amid a chorus of professors and students from tbecivillied world. While greeting Chautauqua, let Chautauqua say, "All hall, O Bologna, mother of stud'es," for Bologna, I idles and gentlemen, was the original Chautau qua. It was a great educational democracy where students and lecturers met together In voluntary association. And, It 1 mis take not, the future developments of Chau tauqua, hinted at by Dr. Harper, will be along lines that were laid down by Bologna eight hundred years ago. Then, all hail ti Bologna, mother of studies and mother or Chautauqua." One of the most Interesting addresses of the occasion was delivered by Dr. J. (J Fitch, of London, England. Dr. Filch Is an old Cambridge university lecturer; the author of various English school text books and tbe official and chief inspector of the English colleges for the training of school teachers of educational and en lightening work in England and Amerlc . Mr. Wlllard White, of Boston, president and principal owner of the Chautauqua lake railway, paid a high compliment to Bishop Vincent's son, who assists him In the management by saying: "Long live Bishop Vincent and long live and all hall Ueorge the First" C. M. N. Chautauqua Culling. There was an Interesting little Incident at Chautauqua the other night, that had a beautiful bearing. Our Philip Phillips was exhibiting a series of pictures to a big audi ence of about 5,000 people. At one point in the entertainment he announced that be would exhibit a portrait of the next presi dent Cleveland's picture was first present od and It was greeted with a storm of hisses, sweetened with some applause. which were probably meant as much for Mr. Phillips as the president the audience failing to comprehend Mr. Phillips's idea, supposing that he meant to announce that Cleveland would certainly be too next president Mr. Phillips, however, pro- reeded to show portraits of Mrs. Cleveland, Gen. Ben. Harrison. Mr. Morton, St John and Frank Wlllard. The appearance of these last two was greeted with moderate enthusiasm, but the portrait of Harrison was greeted with a tremendous ovation. The Chautauqua crowd is largely repub lican this year. . Phillip Brooks, of Trinity church, Bos ton, which has the finest edifice in America, designed by Hlchardson. and costing a million dollars, preaches at Chautauqua next Sunday morning. The writer of this paragraph met a judge from tbe western central portion of New York, a few days ago, who Is a prominent and leading democrat He was one of Cleveland's earliest and most enthusiastic supporters, as a gubernatorial and a presi dential candidate. He remarked that not long since, he went to Washington to see ids old friend, and was treated witn sucn coarse and marked discourtesy for which there was no excuse, whatever that be came away fully resolved never to call upon him again. The judge quietly asserted that a good many democrats in his neighborhood would not vote for Cleve land. C. M. N. THE CHURCHES TOMORROW. St. Paul M. E. church. Yellow Springs, near HUhRer.

The "Horse Doctor" of Twenly-flve Yean Ago Sklllrul Practitioners or New Yotlt Cit Tticlr early Incomes Veterinary Colleges Hone Hospitals. While land was cheap and is cheap peoplo were accustomed, and are now in fact, to re gard the death of stock as a matter of little consequence. There was then, eay twenty flvo yearn ago, from which time the profession dates its substantial progre, little demand in this country for well educated veterina rians. He was then, perhaps he is now In a good many places, the "horse doctor," or worse still, the '"cow doctor," a big fellow with a rough voice and shaggy overcoat, who smelled of his patients, spit tobacco juico and "cussed" like a herd driver. Twenty-five years ago in this city there were, ac cording to Dr. Alexander F. LtautarJ, the dean of the American Veterinary college in West Fifty-fourth street only three well educated veterinary surgeons. Now there are between fifty and sixty skillful prncti. tioners here whose names appear in tbe busi ness directory. But the names in the direct ory do not give an Idea of the real number of men practicing here. And quacks still flourish, not alone In this city, but all over the country. It does not pay a skillful veterinarian to follow his profession In a country town, and hundreds of towns, villages and hamlets throughout the land rejoice in their "horse and cow doctors." Many 'of them are men of good common sense and can pull their patients through, but the large cities, where stock is valuable, cant exactly be proud of veterinarians of a class that humanitarians protest against An animal cannot tell its troubles, cannot sue for damages; but If It could, would it not resent the offices of a "doctor" who can scarcely write his own name! Yet on good authority, it may be said that there are such men in the profes sion. It is said that out of 0,000 or 8,000 veterinary surgeons in tbe country only 1,000 are educated. THE ODIUM OF QUACKS. The profession has long had to bear the odium of quacks with much cost to itself. Two years ago the societies showed the legis lature the necessity of passing an act for regulating the practice of veterinary surgery. It was provided that all veterinarians who had practiced three years prior to the pas sage of the act should be allowed to continue in practice on filing with the county clerk a certificate to that effect Professor Law employs from fourteen to sixteen surgeons in the services of the bureau cf which he is the head. Tbe lowest salary he pays is $1,200 a year, and that to a recent graduate; while one of his most capable assistants gets $10 a day and expenses. "Look at my 'Rogues' Gallery,' " said a well known veterinary surgeon the other day, pointing to tbe pictures of tbe graduates of his col lege. "All of those 2S0 fellows, except half a dozen, are doing well, making from $1,400 to $S,000 a year." Professor Liautard is an enthusiast in the. future of his profession. "In ten years," said be, with a shrug of his shoulders, 'the American veterinarian will eclipse the world." Why should not the pro fessor bo right! Ho came here twenty-five years ago from France. Then, in this city, there were only three f roper ly educated veterinarians, and now there are between fi f ty and sirtf. There are no w two colleges, several well equipped hospitals, veterinary societies and veterinary journalism firmly established. Besides that, tbe profession is respected by the medical fraternity. One of tbe colleges here is sadly overcrowded, and has sent out an appeal for a building fund. Tho hospitals are always full end are obliged to turn away patients at times. The value of stock has greatly increased. The domestic animals ot the United States now repre sent an aggregate wealth of upward of $.',500,000,0)0. There are about six veterinary colleges in this country, and four of them, like most American institutions, owe their success to their own efforts. Tbe European colleges'are subsidized by their governments. Yet France is said to have only three colleges, Germany no more than this country, and England even less. But governmental assistance enables even Roumania to give students a five years' course; France four, Portu gal five, Russia four, Sweden four, Holland four, Germany three and one oolf and England three. Tbe course re luired here is only two years, and short years at that Germany requires about forty hours of recitations and lectures a week for the first year, and nearly sixty hours the becond year. HOSPITALS ron II0RSE3. The hospital system has made good prog ress here of late years, but it isaayetcrudo and inadequate, according to the opinion of a well known veterinarian who is connected with a hospital of good standing. There are not enough hospitals here and the best man aged ones are generally overrun. One . hos pital was opened five years ago with accom modations for six horses. Now it can take care of thirty horses and a large number of dos. Twenty thousand dollars were taken in at that place last year. The colleges also havo hospitals. Tho horses are comfortably stalled in tho hospitals, some of them having bos stalls. The other day a reporter saw one horse tak ing electric shocks for spinal troubla with as much equanimity as a human being. Tho sling is an interesting appliance. It is used to support a horse that has lamed or strained itself, or is not strong enough to stand all the time. The sling is large enough to give a horso a good imitation of a hammock swing, and it is rather interesting to see a dozen horses in their stalls lazily enjoying tbe support of their slings. An ingenious machine is used for securing horses that are to bo operated on. It looks like a small "thrashing" machine. The horso is fastened to a part of the machine which looks like a let down leaf of a dining table. The assist ants turn a crank and the leaf with the horse fastened to it slides up to its place on top of the table and there the horse is high and dry and ready to be operated on by men who un derstand their business.

Terlls to Infants How Deformities jlrlse. Wholesale Abuses. Who does not know that the sufferings, peril and short life of our Infants is largely due to ignorance ou the part of mothers of the common laws n hich govern development, and secure healthful activity in life and yet the rules ore few, simple and easy of applica tionas proper clothing, loosely worn and moderate lu length; proper food, taken at regular intervals (which for months should be mother's n-ilk only, where the supply is sufficient and quality good); abundant sleep; freedom from nervous excitement too often brought about b senseless endeavors to show off the brightness or cunning ways of the child; proper care taking at the periods of teathing, learning to walk, etc How fey realize that deformities arise from encouraging a child to walk before tho bony structures are sufficiently hardened, and from allowing it to sit too continuously w bile the bones are more cartilaginous than osseous. Especially may this habit prove disastrous to female children, from the fact that the diameter of the pelvia may be so much changed by continued pressure of tho superincumbent weight of the trunk of the body and head upon it that in after life ma ternity may prove not only extra hazardous, but perchance, impossible to say nothing of the risk of producing spinal curvatures and chest deformities in either set Fresh air and opportunity for voluntary exercise of the limbs are iu the province of every mother to give, but are tbey regularly ac corded by a majority! Use of drugs should be sedulously avoided, and yet there are mothers, countless in num ber, who, through ignorance, ply the stomachs of their babes continuously, not with the old time catnip and mint teas only, but with vile nostrums, which, under the seductive titles ot soothing syrups and car minatives, carry blunted sensibilities, dull ness, and ofttimes the germs of imbecility, and even death itself, in their .train. Poor babes! must they ever fill tho rolo of vic tims t I fear, yes, till such time as women rouse from their lethargic mental condition and shako off1 the shackles of ignorance, through which these wholesale abuses re main possible. Experience and observation alike point to the facts that most of the suf fering incident to tho period of early woman hood and its fixation (ail too frequently for life) is due to the neglect of mothers, who allow their daughters to enter upon tho most important period of their lives, wholly unac quainted with tho nature of tho changes hich are taking place in the economy, and the necessity for core taking which grows out of them, and this neglect applies almost equally to women in every phase and condi tion of life, tho generally intelligent and cul tivated, no less than their oppositesl Anna D. French, M. D., in Woman. n:lish and American Manners. No time can ever reconcile a cis-Atlantio ear to the heartiness w ith which an otherwise well bred Euglish lady will talk frankly of "tubbing" and of "cleaning herself." It sug gests tho complaint mode by Lord Mel bourne of certain London beauties that they gave hiirLtoo much of their natural history. I do not know any well educated Americans, except one or two southern lady novelists, who habitually use the word "nigger," but in English literature and speech it seems uni versal. Froude employs it through all his books of travel, and even so graceful a writer as the late Mrs. Ewing uses it in her pretty stories. She also bos the very offen sive word "stinking," and one finds and hears It everywhere. "As a rule," writes James Payn from London, in The New York Inde pendent, "I hate people that stink of money." So, in society, Americans are constantly placed in the absurd position of being locturol for want of refined perception" by writers whose language and manners ofTv'ud us at every step. Tbe highest, the most gifted, tire not free from this offeusiveuess of language. When I heard tho most eminent of English poets say of some bad verso that it was "rot," at a time when that odious Anglicism had not yet crossed the Atlantic, it seemed to my startled imagination as if the Venus of Milo had opened her marble lips and had begun to curse and swear. The trouble is that such phrnsesreach us also very rapidly, and take root among us like other weeds. So doubt America furnishes some slang to England also, and wo often go to London to hear it for the first time from cultivated lips. But it mutt be remembered that pugilists and circus riders are not here to bo found so f re qucntiy in fastidious circles, and thus our opportunities of picking up their flowers of i peech are more limited than in London.
