to vacate' their tenements an influx of the
rcnch working classes wijl begin. This peo
!e is regarded here as the Chluese are on the

homespun gray.
The Mark Lane Express, March 30th,
says: The weather has been favorable, and
the crop prospects are better than for years
past Only a few weeks more of such weather
will secure a rich development of all agricul
tural product. Favorable weather has also
produced a marked improvement in the con
duct of English wheat brought to market but
nothing could improve the quality which in
most cases is wretched. Deliveries have been
meagre and the total season's crop offered to
date is 300,000,000 quarters less than the cor
responding period last year. Holders are very
firm and the advance of a shilling is recorded
at several important country markets. The
improvement, however, has not been felt at
ail at any of the markets where the quanti
of sound native wheat offering is
so small that the attention of millers is direct
ed aluost exclusively to foreign. In the face
of rapidly diminishing stocks and unusually
ght arrivals a decidedly improved consump
tive demand has been experienced for var
ieties of foreign wheat but only at former
prices, any inclination on the part of headers
to raise these pretentions having been resisted
by buyers. The operations of millers *t the
beginning of the .week were on a somewhat
extensive scale, probably due to the fact that
with arrivals of the Easter holidays, two
market days would be lost and so, while carry
ing out their reserved polfcy of hand-to-mouth
purchasers, freer buying for a time become
necessary. With regard to the future the posi
tion remains uuchanged. America clings to
her reserves in spite of the lower tendency
of prices of New York and a little encourage
ment from this side, but it must be admitted
improbable she may be rewarded ere long
with some measure of succes. A noteworthy
featuer of last week's imports was the large
proportion in which arrivals from Germany
ured out. Out of the total supply of 37,637
quarters, 21,100 quarters were from German
ports, a fact of considerable significance as
indicating the willingness of nations who have
wheat to spare and are not au fait at the for
mation of rings to send their produce to Lon
don to present rates. The maize supply on
spot is practically nil, and quotations conse
quently nominal. There is little near at hand
and the tendency of prices continue
upward, but buyers are extremely
chary of buying for future shipments as
present prices are far too high to warrant
uch operations with the American large
crops in the back graund. Oats improved six
pence to a shilling per quarter, supplies being
unusually light, and in the present scarcity of
maize any reduction in the value of feeding
stuffs is unlikely. Sales of English wheat the
past week 27,197 quarters at 47s per quarter,
against 42,231 quarters at 40s 8d per quarter
the corresponding week last year. Imports
into the United Kingdom the week ending the
20th inst., 691 '528 hundred weights wheat,
163,056 hurdred weights flour.

The Bank of England*
This old institution was incorporated
in 1649. It covers five acres of ground
and employs 900 clerks. No windows
open on the street, and light is admit

therefore, can take the bank without

walls. The clock in the center of the
bank has fifty dials. It is guarded day
and night by one company of the
Guards.

THE WONDERFUL AUDIPHONE.
A Chicago Invention Coming to the Thorough
and Permanent Relief of the Deaf Mutes of
the World—Visit of the Inventor, Mr. R.
S. Rhodes, to the Deaf and Dumb Institute
of Nebraska—Graphic Report of the Trial
and its Singularly Gratifying Results.
[From the Omaha Daily Republican.]
A representative of the Iiepublican on
invitation made a visit to the Nebraska
Asylum lor Deat Mutes to witness the
trial of the Audi phone, an invention by
R. 8.(Rhodes of Chicago, and says: Arriv
ing at the institution the reporter found
Mr. Rhodes giving an audiphone lesson
to titteen deal-mutes, who were assem
bled in the parlor. Each pupil was using
a audiphone with results that were cer
tainly astonishing.
One young man told the reporter that
until yesterday he had never heard a
sound, but could read and write well.
With this instrument he pronounced the
letter* of the alphabet plainly, and we
venture to say in a very tew months he
will be able to talk well. The first trouble
seems to be in the use ot the tongue and
lips to make sounds never heard before.
Miss Collins, of Falls City, tried the in
strument and could hear well, but not
her own voice, but when she was handed
the double audiphone, where the two
discs with their lower edges united,caused
her to hear her own voice for the first
time. Word8 cannot express her aston
ishment. And all this is through the au
ditory nerve with a connection of the
teeth. The carbonized disc of rubber,
like a fan, is held between the teeth, and
the external ear has nothing to do with
the sound.
After the experiments by Dr. Rhodes
Prof. Gillespie, who has perhaps given
more attention to the oral instructions of
the deat and dumb than any other teach
er in the west, took the class in hand. It
is well known that persona afflicted with
deafness watch the lips. To prevent this
lip reading the professor held a book
before his mouth and told the pupils
who were standing with the audiphone
between their teeth, to indicate how
many times he said "O,'' either once
or twice, and one Jt two fingers came
up from the whole class as he called
the letter.
He then went over the scale rising an
octave, and each pupil singly followed
intonation of his voice. He then went to
the other side of the room, out ot their
sight and called out letters and words,
which were promptly repeated, and all
this was done with only two days' in
struction. The great success of opening
a world, a new world as it may be truth
fully said, to these deaf mutes in a grand
work, and to stand among these intelli
gent faces, who before never heard a voice
or sound, and see the pleasure exhibited
flt the prospect of hearing and speaking
is a better entertainment than the world ©f
fashion can offer.
Amongst the bright scholars are two
sisters from Furnas county, who seemed
30 apt to learn the use of the audiphone,
and Mrs. Grundy might straighten back
when we say that they are Indians. Yes
two girls whose color would not indicate
the fact, but whose future will demon
strate two women educated at this in
stitution such as the world wants. State
institutions should be placed in the
hands of men who will look at the future
of those in their charge, and this great
western field for active labor of brains and
muscle is open. A great man once said,
"Nature is true to herself," and so it has
proved with those who have no chance to
hear the singing of birds or the voices oi
the winds among her pines. A keener
perception, a deeper thought, a realiza
tion of nature's works is all within the
minds of the deaf and dumb. This
great invention opens up a new world to
them
Mr. Rhodes was so much pleased with
the successful operation of his invention,
and the practical results to be attained
under the instruction of Prof. Gillespie—
who is so earnest in the work—that he
made a donation of the audiphones need
ed for the use of the institution, charg
ing the professor to let the pupils take
them home during vacation and astonish
father and mother by showing them that
they could both hear and talk.
Mr. Rhodes, who uses an audiphone
himself, says that holding a watch be
tween his teeth first attracted his atten
tion to the possibility of the audiphone.
which is proving so great a success.
We don't propose to speak ot the man
agement of the institution, the good food
furnished the pupils, the instruction giv
en by skilled teachers, the cleanliness
and pleasant appearance of the buildings,
or the complete order and we may say
happiness which seems to prevail, but we
say, do your duty with pleasure com
bined, and go and see lor yourself. Mr.
Rhodes on this, hi3 first visit to Omaha,
speaks loudly in its favor.
The Host Northern Point of tbe United
States.
William A. Mowry wrote in the New
England Journal of Education,
If the question were asked, "Which
is the most northern part of the United
States, excepting Alaska?" perhaps
many would say, "The line of 49 deg.,
from the Lake of the Woods to the
Strait of De Fuca." But that an
swer would be incorrect. There is
point where the United States reaches
49 deg. 23 min. 54 seo. north latitude.
It is in longitude 95 deg. 14 min. 88 seo,
west from Greenwich.
In other words, at the Lake of the
Woods, in Minnesota, our territory in
eludes a small area reaching beyond 49
deg. more than twenty-five miles. This
little excrescence, jutting out into Brit
ish America, is recently put down in
some of our maps, but I have not seen
it on many of them. It is indicated
though roughly, upon Case's large map
of the United States and upon a large
map published by the Government and
issued by the Land Office.

The following statistics as to the com

GOVERNMENT CLEBK'S OMELET.-^
Take two eggs, beat them well, whites
and yelks add one cup of milk, in
which a table-spoonful of corn-starch
has been dissolved, and a little salt and
pepper have butter sufficiently hot in
pan stir up the omelet while cooking.

halibut of a dark-brown color, the
thinnest and hardest soak twenty-four
hours in cold water, with the flesh side
down only cover with water broil over
hot coals serve with a little butter, or
poach eggs and dish them with the hal

ROAST GOOSJE.—Two ounces onion
and half as muoh green sage chopped
fine add one coffee cup of bread
crumbs, a little pepper and salt, the
yelks of two eggs. Do not quite fill the
goose, but leave room to swell. Roast
from one hour and a half to two hours,
and serve with gravy and apple sauce.
ROAST Goossr.—A goose should be
roasted in the same manner as a turkey.
It is better to make the stuffing of
mashed potatoes, seasoned with salt,
pepper and onions to the taste. Apple
sauce is good to serve with it. Allow fif
teen minutes to a pound for a gosling,
and twenty or more for an older one.
Goose should be cooked rare.
SWEET PICKLES.—To
every seven
pounds of fruit put four pounds of su
gar, one quart of the best vinegar, an
ounce of cloves, ounce of cinnamon, a
dozen pieces of mace. Put the sugar
and spices in the vinegar. Let it boil,
then pour over the fruit let this remain
till next morning boil and pour over for
three mornings. The last time boil the
fruit in it.
HOUSE HINTS.—Rubber
bits are the
best for winter use on your horses.
The mortality among horses is greater
between the ages of 4 and 8 yeara than
at all other periods of life. Warm the
bit on your bridle in frosty weather be
fore putting it in the horse's mouth.
The bit full of frost, coming in contact
with the tongue and lips, adheres to
these soft tissues the same as it would
do when red-hot, leaving the animal
with a sore mouth. If you do not be
lieve it place your own tongue on a piece
of frosted iron some cold morning and
be convinced.
PLUM PIJ^- INQ.—The quantity given
here wil rve for a mess of five or six.
One cup of molasses, one cup of beef
suet,freed from fiber,and chopped fine
one cup of sweet milk, one cup raisins,
nicked, seeded, chopped, and dredged
with flour three cups sifted flour, one
teaspoonful salt, one teaspoonful ground
cinnamon, one teaspoonful of ground
cloves, one-half teaspoonful soda, one
egg. Put soda into molasses and stir
very hard beat the egg well and stir it
into the molasses, then add the flour,
salt, spices, suet and fruits. Put into
prepared bag and boil three hours.
PRETTY WINDOW PLANT.—Many per
sons know it, but some do not, that a
pretty and easily-grown window plant
may be obtained by soaking a round
piece of coarse sponge in warm waler
until it is thoroughly expanded. After
squeezing it about half dry place in the
openings millet, red clover and barley
grass seeds, rice and oats. Hang the
sponge in a window where the sun
shines a part of the day, and sprinkle it
lightly with water every morning for a
week. Soon tender leaves will shoot
out, and, growing rapidly, will form a
drooping mass of living green. If reg
ularly sprinkled, it will Later be dotted

A Sea-Serpent Explained.
An Auburn sportsman explains why
he receives the numerous sea-serpent
stories of* the season with a grain of
allowance. He was hunting on the
shores of a lake in tho wilds of Michi

be a monBter snake, fifty to sixty feet
in length and ten .to twenty inches in
diameter, with humps on its back some
two feet in length. At first its course
was almost directly toward my place of
concealment." When he was about to
fly for his life the serpent, then a few
rods away, changed his course, and re
solved himself into a colony of otter
swimming in single file. His inference
is that sea animals may sometimes travel
in the same manner, and give sailors
the opportunity of drawing the long

LONDON, April 4.—The Observer of this morn
ing says: We understand there will be no de
cision whether tbe government shall resign at
once or await an adverse vote ff the liberal
majority is ascertained. After the resnlt of
tbe polling on Friday became known a special
messenger was sent to Baden Baden with dis
patches for the queen. We have reason to be
lieve thfct Gladstone disapproves of the ar
rangement suggested in various quarters that
be acoeptasobordinate offioe in the new admin
istration. He still adheres to his in
tenion of not resuming office, but will
cordially support the recognized liberal leaders,
Earl Granville and the Marquis of Hartington.
The reports current about the composition of
the new ministry are obviously premature, as
there has been no consultation between the
liberal leaders on the subject: We mention
the following reasons as possessing a certain
amount of probability, although relying as yet
on no basis of ascertained fact. It is said the
Earl of Derby will be offered the foreign office.
It he refuses, as is probable, the office will be
assigned to Lord Kimberley. W. E. Foreter
will be minister of colonies Gospen, chancellor
of the exchequer Lord Card well, secretary of
war Mr. Childers, first lord of the admiralty
Sir William Vernon Harcourt, Sir Charles
Oilke and Mr. Fawcett as representatives of
the advanced section of the party will occupy
seats in the new cabinet. Lord Koseberry it
may also be taken for granted will hold an
important position in tbe liberal administra
tion.

Robert Heath, conservative, 5,126 Dr. Kenea
ly, 1,091. Heath was returned to the last par
liament by 6.180, and Kenealy by 6,110.
The following candidates were elected yes
terday Michael Arthur Bass, liberal, for Staf
fordshire, re-elected Henry Wiggans, liberal,
for East Staffordshire, succeeding si. C. Allsopn,
conservative, liberal gain Donald Currie, lib
eral, for Perehshire, a liberal gain. In 1868
Drummond Mowry. conservative, was elected
for Perehshire by 2,439 votes, the liberal can

THE POLICY.
The Timet, ia a leading article, this norn
mg. nays: We do not hesitate to predict that
when the liberal government comes into pow

of the empire will be precisely coincident with
the counsels we urged npon tbe BeaconsSeld

to the attention of Secretary Evarts, who had taken

Last evening the police were called upon, not
particularly to their surprise, to effect "the ar
rest of A. S. Foote, proprietor of Pomeroy's
Democrat, upon the charge of attempting tn
destroy by fire the building occupied by thea
as a printing office. The fact* of the case are IB
follows, as gathered fr.m Mr. Huntsman, who mads
the complaint, and Chief of Police Hatch, who matsp
the arrest: About half-past 6 o'clock last evening
Mr. Huntsman, managing editor of Pomfroy'* iMiAr
ocrat, being in the office later than usual, had
sion to go from hiB apartment to the room formerly
occupied by Mr. Pomeroy as a private apartmenl.
The usual entrance door he found himself unable 16
open, and consequently went round by the batfc
room and water closet. In passing through thle
room he discovered in a corner concealed from view
a cigar box filled with paper and other combustible^
in the middle of which a lighted candle stood
right. Mr. Huntsman is a calm and clear-hes.itm
man, but his knees trembled and his head whirled at
this discovery. No perscn had access to this portion
of the building except himself and Mr. Foote.
There were nc outer windows, and when the candls,
which was timed to reach tbe paper to
three or four hours, had burned low, and
the inevitable conflagration started, there
was no possibility of discovery from outside until the
center of the building was in a blaze, whkb t!l our file
facilities would have failed to extinguish until it had
onsumed the adjacent Opera house with all its vala^
able immovable contents, and perhaps other property
near at hand. Mr Huutsa.au comprehended a1.! this
as he gazed at the unique but moet effectual skiw
match, which had been provided to do this destma.
tive work. He then, without removing or disturbliig
the position of anything, extinguished th- atf«
and sought Postmaster Charles Seymour, t»'*hou:
startling story was told. Mr. Heymou1* at co'«
municated with Chief of Police Hatch, whe u
consultation with these two gentlerreu, deemed 'L it
evidence enough existed In Mr. Huntsman's et*t
ment to warrant the arrest of Mr. Foote on a chat
of arson.
It has been known for ss&ny months in this offl
that Mr. Foote had been charged with forcing tha
name of his faUer-tn-lav as ai endorse
ment upon certaip notes, aggregating
where from thr# to five thousand d.'l!
which had been to pay bills incurred by

Vincent is said to have fathered and will have to p^r
if he has not already paid them. But since the a|fe
rest of Mr. Foote new forgeries have beeu dev^K
oped, we are told, until the whole sum of forged pa
per approaches, or may even exceed $10,000. TIM
last forgery of $2,500 is a note barely a month olgy
