In a somewhat obscure corner of South eastern Connecticut, near the village o1 Mystic River, is a school where the desa and dumb are taught to speak like hear l ng people and understand spoken words through the sense of ight. A very touching incident is told by the princi pal, Mr. Whipple, about a former pupil, a young woman who had grduated deal and dumb from Dr. Poeet's eign school in New York. She came to Dr. Whipple i to learn articulation and lip .aading. Through the aid of an ingenious alpha bet (invented by the late Zerh C. Whip. pie) which pictures the organs of speech in the position they assume in produc ing audible sounds, this pupil will soon be able to speak so as to be easily under stood. One morning she brought her slate to Mr. Whipple with something written in this alphabet. On reading he found it to be the Lord's Prayer. Perceiving her agitation, he could sarce ly restrain his emotion as he corrected the few unimportant errors and delicate ly returned it to her. The next morning she came exulting ast ly to him, exclaiming vocally, "I prayed he last night in my voice." Her teacher then asked her if she had nevear prayed before. "Oh, yes," aid she, "I have hn thought my prayers, but never spoke them before," and then shbe said, audi by, "My lips shall praise Thee., O God." t "Attnd to the voice of my supplication, 0 Lord." The enthnlasm and joy man ifmted by this young woman in her new found power of speaking was shared in by her Mends, who greatly rejoiced with her. We quote from a letter she wrote at Prof Whipple after she had n tarned ne home: "I shall never give up my speech m for anything in the world. It is a great ch enjoyment to me, I anare you. My _- friends consider it a perfect wonder, and SI don't And it at all hard to understand me. Many smart and intelligent people re think I have been restored to heaing. ug Is that not funny?" Another interestng Ir. case is that of a nephew of the late Gov. SParker, who is receiving instruction of SMr. Whiqple through the sum~ner va I tion. This gentleman lost his hearing a about nine e am o- few weeks be fore he was to graduate from college. , He h seclved instructia in the art of SliUp reeding ely about es weeks, ad his Sprogress for so short a tame has been re id markable.

Maj. Pinkerton was a msn with a big heart. I don't think he knew how to do a mean thing He was one of those honorable, fair minded men, who, while giving every ' body their due, exacted the same fo himself. In matters of busines he insist ed on getting every penny that belonged to him, and once he made a promise it f was lived up to if it cost him every pen f ny he owned in the world. His like Sand dislikes were intense. If he became Syour fiend no amount of calumny on the part of your enemy could change his opinion; but if he disliked you neither argument nor entreaties could shake him an iota. "Mqa. Pinkerton's perseverance and iagenuity were the secrets of his sueam in all his undertakings. If he could not accomplish his purpose by one plan he immediately resorted to another. His mind was wonderfully fertile in expedi-= ents, and it was a rare thing for him to fail when he had once set his mind up on suecess. You can form some idea of his ready tact and capacity for planning in the case of the colored murderer Johnson, of South Carolina, who killed an enemy under the most brutal circum stances. MaJ. Pinkerton was pretty poe itive a to the man's guilt, but it was impossible to obtain a complete chain of evidence. Withthe natural secretive nes of his race Johnson refused to fail into any of the man-traps laid for him and make a confession, which was Pin kerton's object. "After weeks of patient but abortive work a novel plan was hit upon. The murderer was surprised one morning when he went to take a plow into a field to find it spattered with blood. In the open field where he was to work the murderer found little pools of blood along the course he was toplow. When he went back to the stable he was start led by seeing the bloody imprint of a human hand on the stable door. Every h9e, or rake, or other farm implement that the man Liced up had blood on it. When nightfall came the murderer was so paralysed with fear that his teeth were chattering and he was afraid to go to bed. He beievedthatthe girlt of his victim was haunting him. The de tective and his sassisant noted those Smptoms, and were confident that the " htplan had been struk at last. It had been after a fashion, and there was a horrible proof given the next day. Johnson was found in the barn with his throat cut from ear to ear He had kill ed himself rather than endure the tor tresof a guilty conscience. I need not eplainthat the blood marks which frightened the murderer's guilty soul wea the work of the detective, and not oft w in that Mj. Pinkerton excell ed. He could change his tactics so that the man or men he was seeking would be led into a trap when they really thought they wee getting out of one. There are samres nd mores of such in aces, bntthey have all neen publish ed bom time to time as they occurred, and Idonot so would interest you. It was oneof . Plnakerton's rules to conceal nothing fom the public of pub lic inten , after the wok was done;and twas another infexible rule to tell the public nothing before the job was An shed or while it was in progress. From this he nevr d te and his sons William and Robert, who are their ather's suae iors, iladhere to it as ridly as the founder of the agency the eoveemtr e ardas and ue.an. Yeuth's Ompamlo.. When GeneralGareld was on his way to Washington to be inaugurated as Pres. ident of the United States, John B-, a well known public man from Ashtabula, boarded the train. He had been one of Aeld's pupils when the latter taught in a little log schoolhouse in the back woods. As the teacher boarded with Mr. B-'s mother, they had been more Intimate than is uial with master and scholar. Many signicant stories were told wen they met whih illstrated the hard stregles of the mfture President in his youth.

The chief industry up in the Catskills ris producing wood Sour, a kind of cousin Sto wood pulp. It was first manufactur. ed in the Catakills about nine yeas ago, I and now over twenty mills are in fall I blast. The prooes is eaupedingly sim t pie. Any soft wood tree-poplar is the favorite-is felled and drawn to the mill. The bark and boughs are removed, and ithe trunk put in a machine which is nothing but a lead pencil sharpener on a large scale, with four or more knife edges instead of one. On starting the machine I the pencil sharpener revolves with great swiftness, and in a few minutes converts the log intoa hundred miles of fine, clean ashavings. These are ground and bolted exactly as in flour mills. The product is a fine, yellowish white flour, similar in appearance to a very well ground corn meal. It possesses a slight woody smell, and'is almost tasteless. It is pat up in llare bags and then is despatched, un marked to the buyer. I tried to find out who purchased the article, but with no suncese. The wood miller was not very communicative. "It makes," he aid, "well, l don't know how much exactly. One log may give fire bags and it may give ten. It sells well I that is pretty tolerable. I reckon I clear a about eight or nine dollas a day out of it-perhaps more. I never figgered it up. What's it good for? Good many things. It's usned to stiffen paper, buhot if you put in too much the paper gets brittle. Pa per stock is dearer than poplar flour, and that's why they putit in. If youmix the flour with linseed im and 'biled' oil you get a kind of oilc h. Some flks mix it with meal to give to pig and oth er animals. I gase it'sgood, but I nev- t or giv, it to my bogs,and even those fel lows give it to some other fellow's crit ters and not their own. Yes, I have heard that some bad contractors mixed I it with meal for army and Indian ap- I plies but I don't take much stock in the I story because they could bay sour meal t as cheap a poplar four. It wouldn't pay to mill pine and cedar or hemlock; t they are worth too mach as timber. But t any wood that isn't used that way can be milled into flour. I use poplar almost t altogether but when I run short of los t 1 pin p buttontmh; bireb, elm, or The farmers dislike the new industry, a as it promises to play havoc with the t forests, which are both an attraction to t the boarder and a protection to agricul ture. The tanneries years ago used up n nearly all the oak and hemlock; the lam bermen have stripped the country prae- t tially of pine, cedar and walnut; the I chair factories are consuming the hick or. ad maple; and now the wood-foor mill promises to grind up what remain ing timber there Is.

They could not believe in the power of electri city to perform so great a wonder. One olo gentleman from New York, who had lived a neighbor to Silas Wright, said he knew it to be a forgery, for he had seen the signature of Silas Wright a hundred times and had seen him write it, and "the thing is no more like Wright's hand write than it is like my own." But still, with this evidence against its being genuine, the telegram was regarded as genuine.and George M.

Softly the tender touch of the June breeses fell upon the face of the dying youth and stirred the beautiful brown hair in careless curls upon his pure white forehead. In a golden cage by the window, a bird sang its low sweet notes. and by the bedside stood those who lov ed him. The glorious sunlight flooded house, and street, and park and lighten ed the blue of heaven. It was such a morning as brings life to the world, not death, and the joyous face of nature, was in strange contrast with the saddened hearts of those who stood waiting the coming of the invisible angels. The blue eyes, fast fading, opened feebly, and the silver haired minister bent over the youth aLd with quivering voice spok3 to him. "Do you know me, Frank?" "Yes, sir," was the low response, "and all the others who are with you. It is so kind of them to be near me as the shadows darken,and the mists of the val ley thicken and chill me with their dampness " "Are you quite ready to die, dear boy?' "Yes, sir; oh, yes, quite ready; you know ever since the first robin of spring sang in the trees, there has been a man next door learning to play on the cor net." A cloud p-eed over the sun; the bird in its golden age stopped its song, the blue eyes closed wearily-the invisible angels had come. The oa ae seep elumSa. Phiadelvpha Call. By some unacountable miens there has been handedfrom generation togen eration two erroneous ideas concerning castile oap. One error is that the m-. terials of which it is composed are in variably of the beat, and the other is that it is beneficial to the skin, and con sequently desirble for the toilet. These errors have so taken hold of the popular mind that it is usual to provide a pieee of "white castile soap" to wash the new born infant, and this is usaly done by the advice or sanction of the family phy sician, who, having imbibed the pre judice from his preceptor, takes to re commending it as a matter of course, without uslng his own judgment. It is now however, becoming a doubt among many phyicians and nurses as to whether the favorable epinion about astile eap is not entirely at variance with the truefacts of the case, and that it is a settled opinion with some that ma tile soap is really responsible far manyof the skin diseases that are prevalent even among perons whose occupation should caise them to be see from any much un welcome and annoying complaint; min istersand lawyers, bankers and artists, and men and women whose occupations (or want of any occupation) would seem to preclude almost any poeibhlity of such ungenteel disease as salt rhemn tetter, etc., still in spate of their exemption from exposler are as likely as any, not only to have these or worse akin troubles but to ufbr with them for yeas.

The terrors of death do not ex ist for those who live to a ripe old age, or who die of some wasting disease, but I in cholera there are what the French term lee affres de la mort, so long as vital energy exists, and when that he t comes extinct the patient has but one I wish-to be done with life as soon as possible. The feeling that arises at this stage is like the one produced by severe and long continued sea-sickness. One is weak, stupid, giddy, convulsed, and ev Sery minute seen s an eternity. The blood being of the consistency of cur rant jelly, the patient is everywhere sen sible of the cold hand of death. It is no use trying to breathe. Each inhalation enables the microbes (which, if they aje not a cause, are a consequence of the disease) to pullulate in veins and arter ies. They are greedy of oxygen, although were it to play freely on them it would consume them like a burning fire. Noe trume and panaceas have not so good a chance here as in England and the United States, unless recommended by a prince of science. Punl Bert favors the protective system of Dr. Burq. This is the philosophy of his treatment : Salts of copper poison the microbes which swarm in a human being attacked w.th cholera or a symotic disease. These salts remain for some time in thesystem, and particularly in the liver, and are innocuous unless taken in large doses. The person whose liver is saturated with coppermay defy cholera. Burq protect ed a whole ward fall ofpatients in a hoe pital in which the wards directed by other physicians were being decimated by the Asiatic courge. In 186 he slyly exposed a number of artificers in brass, employed in watch fictones near Mont beliard, to cholera. Not one of them took it. Claude Bernard was converted to his system after these tests. French doctors do not, as I have said generally answr nocturnal calls, and those who are attached to the police sta tion are young and inexprenced. English and American should therefore aply, if seied with cramps at night, to or American practitioners. Philadelphia can now boast of one of the finest medical schools in the world ; and the American doctor is observant, not fussy, nas a good judgment and a cool head. When he fnds he must hum hug he humbugs wtl,dry humorn. Dr. Pratt (son-in-law of the fAmos Dr. Ia. rion 8ims), who bought the practice of Dr. Chepmell, and Dr. Johon are high ly eatmedas men and physicians by their trasatlantic atriots adhy their French patients be. John Chap. Iman, the old friend of George Eliot, is a link between England and America. Though he pmuuaes Pew ideas and has a philosophical intellect and intumtion, he m a sae man and advances prdentJy. Americas like innovation and are rapid to perceve ability.
