THE FETTERED OIUIIT.
My name is Rene Lenoir. I was trav eling in Persia during the time of the war between that power and Great Brit ain. I reekonedjon, my nationality to pro tect me from any molestation. In this I was deceived. One day, having strayed some distance from my party, I was seized by a band of horse-guards of one of the most powerful sheiks. I pre sume he was ignorant of he difference between a Frenchman and an English man, or, perhaps, he thus wantonly took the opportunity to secure a slave. Pos sibly he may have confounded me with one of the British cavalry officers whom I had been told I resembled. At any rate I was in his power, and certainly from no friendly design on his part. As I was brought into his presence lie was en gaged in a game of chess with a female of graceful persou, but whose features on account of the customary veil, 1 could not discover. The sheik addressed me. but as I did not understand the Persian language I did not reply. Bending a fferce, vindictive glance ai me, he gave some order to my attendants which I in terpreted from their movements to be my immediate death. Re-iterating the order in a peremptory tone, he tamed to finish his game. As I was being led out a lucky thought struck me. Motioning to my gaurds to allow me to address their ruler, I ad vanced, and by signs intimated that 1. too, could play chess. I had not calcu lated wrongly. Like all players the Persian was desirous of encountering new antagonists, and no doubt he felt a special desire to engage with one who came from a foreign land. Ordering mv hands to be unbound, he motioned me to a seat opposite him, the young female yielding me her place. Chance gave him the move. He opened with the Aleppo gambit, and, as the game proceeded, I soon saw that I was a stronger player than my captor. 1 feared, however, to play my strength for to win the game might be to lose my slender chance of respite. So, after a struggle which I purposely prolonged, the game was drawn. The chief appeared somewhat nettled at this, and 1 inferred that he was un used to lack of success, still less to defeat. So the next game I allowed him to win, after a brisk but sharp contest This put him in thorough good humor, and he immediately reset the men for a third game, at the same time dismissing all the guards but one. At this my spirits and h.ipes rose. Could I so play my game as to interest this savage my execution might be indefinitely postponed. Thus, time might be gained, if opportunity should offer, to even effect escape—so ready is Hope with her promise. So, after a long series of moves, I allowed him to score the third. Highly elated at his successes he pushed the board from him and spoke to the attendant guard. I was then conducted through the gar den into an outer building or sort of towc. From this I conjectured that it W:L the whim of the sheik to amuse him with my chess play. My conjecture proved to be correct for, on the follow ing day, I was conducted again to the sheik, "and, as before, we played three games—he, of course, scoring them all. For three weeks affairs thus continued, the chief winning from me each day two or three hard-fought sames. At our in terviews the same veiled female to whom 1 have before alluded was always pres ent. I tried hard to get a sight of her face, but was baffled by the impervious veil. I thought, however, that I could detect in her eves, which were large and luscious, an expression of compas sion and Fsvmpathy when they encoun tered my glance. During the intervals between our daily bouts I minutely and anxiously scanned every possible avenue of escape. The apartment in which I was confined over looked a river about fifty yards wide. (n the inside, in the garden, guards were stationed. So escape seemed im possible. One day, as I looked from ray window, I thought I detected the presence of a body of armed men in the plain on the other side of the river. It immediately occurred to me that this mi"ht be a de tachment of British cavalry. But on looking in the direction of the course of the stream I detected at some distance another similar body of men. It could not be that tliey were both English, for their attitude toward each other was liostile and their demonstrations men acing. However, I had no time for further oh nervation as I was sent for to furnisk my usual daily sport. While on our way to ihe sheik's apartment I noticed amon_ the guards preparation for departure. The nousehold attendants were also packing up. As I took my place at the toard, I also noticed that the veiled la dy gave me a glance which was more than usually sorrowful, and that the sheik looked stern and threatening. My fears were suddenly roused, and 1 de duced the conclusion that as an enemy was near at hand, removal necessary and a fight imminent, my execution so long delayed, was to take place after this our last contest. While revolving these bitter thoughts in my mind, the skeik, as usual had won the game. As though bored by constant success he was about to sweep the men from the board. A thought struck me. If I am to die, I will at least dispossess your mind of the idea that you are my superior at chess! So I reset my men and his, too, thus pointedly challenging him to one more trial. He turned again to plav. It was my move, and I held the attack throughout. After seventeen moves, I announced mate in five moves. The skeik was astonished Though provoked, he evidently attribut ed my succes. to lack of attention on his part. So we set to again. This time the Persian had evidently made up his mind not to allow himself to be distract ed. But again I won with ease. The third game resulted in like manner On commencing the fourth it removed the rook and this time the result was, il anything, more disastrous for the_ sheik than before. By this time the chief wae wild with rage. But I reset the men anxious for another game, as I took grim delight in thus revenginsr myself When he'at length brought himself to resume play, I crowned my qupen's knight, signing to him that with that piece 1 would mate him. The game then proceeded. As I was about to deliver the final coup, the sheik sprang up in a frenzy of passion. Springing to the window, with a voice hoarse with passion, he yelled to the guards. As this was transpiring the veiled lady came forward, and seizing s piece hersel f, executed the final move saying in Spanish as she did so. "Thus the fettered knight wing—across the river." She could say no more, as the guards entered and seized me. From their manner on our way to my quarters in the tower, I inferred that my execu tion was fixed to take place at sunrise Left alone, I began to reflect on the strange demeanor of the mysterious female. Could she have meant more than she said? Her repeating my move was natural, and her words, "Across the rive," might mean nothing, as they ap plied strictlv to the board, which, like ad Oiientaf chess-boards, represented two plains separated by a river. But the word fettered." This was unusual the customary and acknowledged term is "crowned." And though the words, "Across the river," might apply to the board used in this connection with the fettered knight, they, too, possessed a meaning. But then I recollected there were two detachments of armed men the one above and the other below us, on the other side of the river. In which direction should I shape my course? Even supposing one of them to be Eng lish, I might land in the hostile camp after all. As I sat on my hard couch revolving indicate my own course. Yes, 1 must move down stream, lor the fettered avaliar on the board crossed the stream to the right. At length the problem was solved. Anxiously and eagerly I waited for night. Hardly had darkness enveloped the earth, wlien climbing through my window I dropped myself into the stream. The curreMtand my own stren uous exertions soon carried me faraway torn my jailer. As 1 went drifting and swimming down stream suddenly heard the well-known cry, "Halt!" It was the British outpost, and soon was in the midst of friendly Englishmen. 1 recited mv adventures,"and learned from them that it was their design to attack at day break the party which 1 had seen from my window. After some persuasion I prevailed upon their officer to forego this plan, and, instead, to let me conduct them, bv a detour, to the shiek's strong hold. Inuring my incarceration I had observed the extent of their force, and knew that the detachment I was with could easily carry the place. The hough tof capturing my old enemy added zeal to my undertaking. We immediately set out. Swimming our horses across the stream we arrived in the rear of the Persian citadel at day .ight. The assault, being totally unex pected, was completely successful. The sheik, however, fought like a tiger and succeeded in rallying around him a few of his guards. "I endeavored to make my way to him, and called him to sur render, but the confusion and tumult were at first too great. Finally I suc eeded in reaching him, and through one of thejeaptured guards summoned him to surrender, as his "game was lost." At this he gave one quick and nervous glance around. He turned to flee, but found himself baffled on all sides. JY oiling a step or two, he raised his hand 0 his mouth. Then, in the Persian di alect, he exclaimed: "The king isnever aken—he is mat," and fell dead at my feet. Bending over the corpse, I saw at once the cause of his death. On one of his fingers was u ring with a hollow seal. From this it was that he imbibed the poison. Graven on the seal of the ring was a problem strangely in keeping with the wear's tragic end. It was in five movesr-black to play and force white to mate. The place was soon sacked and fired. As soon sis 1 could, I hastened in quest of the veiled lady who had given me the key move to escape. I found her safelv concealed in the very tower in which 1 had been confined. When our party withdrew, she went with us. From her 1 learned that she was the daughter of a Spanisn marine, and that her name was Emilia Yaliente. Her father, she said, was of an adventruousskirit, constantly making perilous voyages to distant lands. While on a cruise to Bombay, their ves sel had been wrecked in the gulf of Oman. Of all on board she was the only one saved. The sheik, from whose hands she and myself had just escaped, had taken her from the friendlv tribe in whose midst she found herself after her rescue from the wreck. Like me, she had been held a prisoner to amuse him at chess. Our fortunes were so singular and so like, and the circum stances under which we were brought together seemed to have so much of fatality, that Ave were not long together before we loved. So the "fettered knight" and "mobled queen" were wed. Jiulali P. Benjamin. Dyndon Letter to the Atlanta Constitution. I doubt if there is at the south one man familiar with his countiy's history for the last thirty years who is not proud of the career of Judali P. Benjamin. In inquiring for his chambers, I learned from a middle temple barrister that Mr. Benjamin was regarded to-day as the greatest lawyer at the English bar. He is in court all day till 4 o'clock in the af ternoon, th«?n until 7.30 o'clock receives the solicitors in his chambers. Aft this he goes home to dine at his club in the west end. His only leisure is on SundaV and an occasional evening, Short of stature, thick set, with a strong, bright eye, he is a man of, simple, nat ural manner, relating his adventures, reverses and successes with the cliarinii ease, grace and naturalness, mingleu with a subtle playfulness of a good reconteur. He said, in talking of his adventuresafter the fall of Richmond, that the confederate government left Richmond in a body. He and Mr. Davis were together on their way to the trans- Mississippi department, and Mr. Davis left the party to meet his wife, en route, and it was in her camp that he was cap tured The friends, did not know lliat Mr. Davis was in the wagon train which was transporting 51 rs Davis and friend, and only approached curiously to see what it meant. Mr. Benjamin continued his Journey alone, and hearing of the capture of Mr. Davis gave away his saddle and bridle, and se curing an old tree threw over it a sheep skin, and under an alias, playing farmer at length reached the gulf coast. Here he took a small boat, and coasting ar round until arriving at a point near Key West, he embarked in a small sail boat open and without deck, for Nassau Here the small, quaint-looking black and bright eyes glistened: as this remarkable man related how, when the gulf stream almost carried them out in to the open sea when battling with a headwind, and out of sight of land (for 100 miles was thi distance), and with "one bushel of raw, sweet potatoes to feed three men when, almost without hope, at the last moment, the wind changed, filled their small sail, carried them within sight of the light-house, and enabled them to effect a landing just at the extreme northern point of the Ba hamas. He landed in England in Sep tember, ltstvj. in June, i»nt), ne was ad mitted to practice in the English bar his admission was granted by the benches of Lincoln's inn, in six months instead of three year3, as the rules gen erally require, on the ground that he was an old member of the bar of a country eoverned under the system of tne common law, ana tne iact- tnat ne was a political exile. He published his "Benjamin on Sales" in 18H8, having in the intervening years supported him self and his family by writing leading articles for the newspapers. The first, year he made about £.'500, the next year about £400, and in the fourth year, he said "my income was £1,000. It rapidly increased after that." At the present rate of Mr. Benjamin's income he will, in a few years, if he is not now, be the possessor of vast wealth. "My books gave me my. practice," and now, won derful to relate, "I have," said he, "up on looking over my cases yesterday, just one-half of the cases from the realm (i. e., the whole of England, Scotland and Ireland) before the house of lords on the appeal." Mr. Benjamin's daughter married a French officer of the sfciff and his wife and daughter live in Paris. Transplanting Teeth. Interview with a Dentist in Philadetpma Press. I performed an operation of trans planting under romantic circumstances on a certain occasion. A young lady, as pretty as a peach, and a fine-looking young fellow came to see me one morn ing. After no little hesitation they told me they were betrothed and that he was in the army and was going away to the plains for at least a year, hunting In dians. "And we are very unhappy at parting," whimpered she. "Yes, we are," almost blubbered he. "We heard of transplanting teeth and want you to take one out of each of our months and transfer them." For a moment, I was transfixed with laughter and astonish ment, and. I attempted to reason them out of their foolish proposition—both had excellent teeth, by the way hut they insisted, so I extracted one of her largest back teeth and one of hjs these thoughts, I kept mechanically re- smallest. Hers fitted his jaw all right, rkQo+inrf• ''Thna fVtD filftprpfl lrm(rVli n«/1 Un wAnl /\ff r* fnw /lava alYnvtrn4r peating: TThua the fettered knight wins—thus the fettered knight wins." Suddenly it occurred to me that "thus" was also a significant word in this con nection. Then it flashed upon me that thejdirection of the knight's move might one and he went off a few days afterward to his post with his lady love's molar. His tootn, however, would not stick in her for within a week the young lady came back with her face dreadfully swollen. I reduced the inflammation and eased the pain, but could not replant her lov- 1 er's fang, and she went away with it wrapped up in paper. Oh! the incon sistency of the women! Six months later she married a man old enough to be her father. When the young lieutenant sub sequently returned he indignant I v told me of the manner in which lie had been jilted, and requested me to immediately extract his false love's tooth, which I did, and he threw it into the cuspadore. WHY HE MOURNED. The Bottom Fads of the Funeral Toufhingly ToUl, "If you've got the time I'd like to have you write a little something about the deceased," said the little man quietly, 'something pretty mournful, if you please." Who is dead?" inquired the manag ing editor, dipping his pen in the ink pot. "Friend of yours?" "Well, yes," replied the little man, leaning over the table. "She was my wife. Her wings sprouted yesterday and we turfed her over this p. m. She was a very superior article of remains, and I thought I'd have you speak a trood word for her to the public, with something about other papers copying it at the bot tom." "Where was the plant?"asked the edi tor, scratching his bead for appropriately melancholy ideas. "We set her out jp iu Cypress Hills," replied the mourner, wiping his eyes. "Ave had a ten-dollar discourse and u forty-dollar funeral. You might speak of the casket. That cost fifteen dollars alone, and there must have been eight or nine dollars' worth of flowers and shrubs, and one thing or another." I might sav she was popular and gen erally beloved by all who knew her in life, eh?" suggested the editor. "You bet! And that'll make her sis ter mad. You may say she was the handsomest woman in her po lice precinct, and that there were four carriages chock full. If you want a nice iece of descriptive, you might add that rode on the hearse with the driver." "An affectionate wife and loving mother?" hinted the editor. "Well," coughed the little man, "If you've got plenty of time and room. Perhaps you'd better pay more atten tion to the handles of the casket. I'll show 'em to you. Genuine plate!" and he drew them from his pocket. "The screws were all silver headed but they thought I'd better leave them." "Was she prominent in any of the charitable rackets? Much in the Sun day school business?" asked the edit or. "Yes, some. She belonged to a gross or two of old woman's liopies and a couple o' dozen of children's temperance societies, but that didn' cut much figure at the funeral. You might speak ot the number present and say that several friends of the remains were jammed about a good deal trying to get a sight at her. We showed her at the house and at the grave, and though I say it myself, I think the coffin plate was generally ad mired." Then she was a worthy, Christain wom an, charitable and kindly disposed, and departed sincerely mourned by a large circle of friends?" "Oh, yes!" sighed the bereaved. "I don't see any objection to that. You might follow it up ty remarking that her prostrated husband gave her as good a send off as any woman in that ward ever had. The head-stone comes to $15, and I lost ten to my brother-in-law betting that the hearse could beat the mourner carriage to the first tollgate on the old road commine home. I'd like to have it known that I did the fair thing, though I don't care to look like I was blowing about the expense.' "Did she leave any children?" "Yes, oh, yes! she left 'em. Theyt went with her as far as the grave. It stood me in $27 to fiet them out with grief for the occasion. But. 1 don't be grudge it. When I spend money I cal culate to get the worth out of it, and no body hears me complain. 1 paid $1S for lie clothes she was shoveled under in.' "Did she leave any property?" "A couple of houses ana lots, but you needn't mention them. Just speak of it as the social event of the season in funer al circles, in which no expense was spared to make it a gratifying success, and you'll hit it about even. The neigh bors'are all watching for the paper, and you'll make a little something out of the sales if you do the ight, thing You might say in to-day's paper that the notice will appear to-morrow, so as to advertise it a little," and the prostrated husband put on his hat and buttoned his coat. And the managing editor wrote a sim ple, touching tribute to the memory of the woman whose qualities were buried under her funeral bills and the pros trated husband showed it around, ex plaining that he couldn't, imagine how the paper got hold of the fact unless it was that a reporter was present disguised as one of "the friends of the remains." Lress and Literature at the Bar David Paul Brown, for many years one of the leaders of the Philadelphia bar, was often ridiculed by envious lawyers as a fop and pedant. It was his habit to appear in court dressed in a blue coat with brass buttons, buff vest and light trousers and a' glossy hat When one bantered him on his dressi ness, he replied that he had never known a man to speak well in clumsy boots, nor to have a clear mind with dirty face and hands. "A becoming decency of exterior," he added, "may not be necessary for our selves, but it is agreeable toothers." No rival could afford to cherish con tempt for the so-called dandy, for he was a pleasing orator, powerful with the jury and always compelling the at tention of the court by his knowledge and original interpretation of the law. He was, like Mr. Choate, an omnivor ous reader and an enthusiastic lover of elegant literature. In justification of his passion, he said,— "It enables me to return to my more rugged pursuits with greater alacrity and renewed strength. The mind takes its direction from habit. T] 3-011 wish to strengthen it, you must direct it for a time into other channels, and thereby refresh and improve it. A mere lawyer is a mere jackass, and has never the power to unload himself whereas I con sider the advocate—the thoroughly ac complished advocate—the highest style of man. He is always ready to learn and teach, llortensius was a lawyer, Cicero an orator. The one is forgotten, the other is immortal." Physical Perfection. Yon can be made strong in all your parts. You can strengthen the digestive organs, cure dyspepsia, and prevent those varying attacks ol constipation and diarrhea. You can strengthen the urinary system and cure •all such symptoms of weakness as bad dreams, milky urine, etc. You can strength en the nervous system and rid yourself of that extreme feeling of debility. You can strengthen your mental faculties and im prove your memory. You can strengthen your muscular system and increase your power of endurance. In a word, you can be an example of physical perfection if you de sire, by using a scientific combination of Yellow Dock, Sarsaparilla, Juniper, Buchu, Iron, Celery, and Calisaya all of which in gredients enter into the composition of Dr. (iuysott's Yellow Dock and Sarsaparilla. and makes it Nature's best assistant in curing all forms of organic diseases, entitling it to be called the Queen of all health Reuewera, and a perfect blood purifier. Nearly 18,000 harvesters, an unuBiial num ber, have gone from Ireland to England this year. A minister writes: "From hard study and close application to the duties of a protract ed revival, my health suffered severely. I took a vacation and tried to win back health and strength, but I seemed to be sinking in to a state of general weakness and prostration. Ajfriend presented me with a bottle of Dr. Guysott's Yellow Dock and Sarsaparilla. Its effect has been wonderful, and although I decline having my name published Itwill speak a good word for this medicine at every opportunity."

Trees or plants that are underfed be come stunted and are noither useful nor beautiful. The sooner thev die the bet ter. Those that are overfed make a rank, watery growth, which does not ripen, and is not in a condition to resist cold. The twine binder is boss this year. What could we do without it? It enables thousands of hands to work in the weedy corn who otherwise would have to follow the reaper as binders. It is safe to say that the twine binder will add millions of bushels to the aggregate of the corn crop next fall.—Farmer. Asparagus to obtain the higlieBt price in the New York market must be bleached like celery. To make it white the earth is thrown over the beds early in the spring, and the stalks are cut with a long kni e. It is known as "white grass," and sells for twice as much as that, which grows in the sun and is called "green grass." A novelty in the shape of a strawberry bed is to be seen at Westtield, Mass. It is a hogshead filled with loam and stones, and from its sides are growing, from holes bored through the wood into the loam, overone hundred thrifty straw lie 1 plants, bearing a prolusion of large, luscious fruit. A German agriculturalist, after twen ty-tive years experience, contrary to the general belief that the larger varie ties of merino are to be preferred on ac count of their yielding a better return both in tiesh and wool for the fodder onsumed declares the reverse to be true, as the build of the sheep has a greater influence 011 fattening properties than the absolute size, and larger quan tities of wool are obtained from s nail sheep in relation to a given weight than in the larger kinds, the relative inorease amounting to from 20 to 30 per cent. Celery, one of the most popular escu lents, should now be set out in rows. Divested of many of the silly notions now entertained, its culture is not diffi cult and success certain, provided the season does not prove dry. The for mer practice of digging deep trenches is becoming obsolete, and the placing of large masses of rank manure directly be neath the plant is also senseless. Select a low situation with a deep rich soil, and apply a heavy dressing of good manure over the entire surface. Plant in rows say five feet apart and six inches distant in the row. Riddle the plants in thin mud before setting out, and soak the round thoroughly afterward. Of course a damp, cloudy day is best fortius work. Do not, hill up until autumn, but culti vate thoroughly and keep scrupulously clean. Household Hints. A scientific journal advises melon growers to put, coffee grounds on their melon beds. They are said to greatly improve the flavor of the fruit. If onions which are to be boiled are put in salted water after they are peeled, and allowed to remain in it for an hour before they are cooked, they will loose so much of their distinctive flavor that they will rarely remind one hours after of what he had for diuner. Onions that are eaten raw may be treated in the same way. Candied orange is a delicacy which is easily made. Peel and quarter the or anges make a syrup in the proportion of one pound of sugar to one pint of wa ter then take it from the fire and dip the quarters of orange in the syrup let them drain 011 a line sieve, placed over a platter, so that the syrup will not be wasted let them drain thus until cool, when the sugar will crystalize. These are nice served with the* last course of dinner. Potato eroquetts are nice for supper, and are preferred by some people to the much praised Saratoga potatoes. Take two cups of cold mashed potatoes, two eggs, a lump of butter half the size of an egg, salt ana p3pper to taste, and half a cupiul of fine cracker crumbs. Mix well roll with your hands 011a kneading-board in round cakes or long ones scatter a little flour on the board drop the cakes in hot lard and fry them until they are brown. We sink millions of dollars annually in plants and seeds not adanted to our climate, so we had better hold on to our brlliant geraniums until we get some thing better, which we will not be likely to do very soon. In freedom from in sects, in foliage, coloring, great, variety and easy culture, they are excellent If they were only half as good as they are, we should use them, for they grow and bloom and give much satisfaction. I have 110 sympathy with a class of En glish people (a very small class I think), who ridicule beds of scarlet geraniu us, and exclaim loudly against their "glare and vulgarity." There is 110 need of this. A suggestion that they could be toned down with a judicious admixture of other plants harmonizing colors would be better. A remedy, which is recommended by good authority as excellent for the com plaints of children at this season of the year, is made by boiling for six hours a teacupful wheat flour tied closely in cloth. At the end of that time take it out of the water, and let it dry and cool. When you wish to use it grate two table spoonfuls of it, mix with a little cold milk, then stir into one pint of boiling milk. Sweeten to the taste with powdered sugar. Manner*. I think-Hans Anderson's story oftbe cobweb cloth woven so fine that it was invisible—woven for the king's garment —must mean manners, which do really clothe a princely nature. Such a one can well go in a blanket, if he would. In the gymnasyum or on the sea beach his such superiority does not leave him. But he who has not this fine garment ol behavior is studious of dress, and then not less of house and furniture and pic tures and gardens, in all which we hope to lie perdu, and not be exposed. Earrings and Eyesight. A great deal nas been written '(n the subject of "boring the ears for the sa e o the eyes," says the London Lancet. It is always easy to find excuses for any practice which ministers to vanity That the counter irritation set up by boring the ear and wearing a ring may, during the few weeks following the op eration, have some effect on the eyes, supposing these organs to be the seat ol any low form of inflammation, is just pos sible but that permanent goo 1 should be done by wearing rings in the ears after they have ceased to irritate is in conceivable. The test for motive in the recourse to this de vice would, therefore, be will ingness on the part of the applicant for this form of "treatment" to allow the healing process to be delayed, say, by wearing a rough ring dipped in some ir ritating application—in fact, so prepared as to act like a seton. This, indeed, might do good, but in such a case probably re course to a few blisters behind the ears would be better. It is nonsense to sup pose the wearing of earrings can be 01 any service to the eyes unless they irri tate, and if they do irritate, the process by which the result attributed to them is obtained is circutious, and from a surgi cal point of view awkward in the ex treme. For the Cook. O MJ-F ARHIONED OAF AK*.—TAKE sugar have been added then mix to gether and let rise until light. It is bet ter to let this sponge over night, and in the morning add the other ingredients (flour the raisinB) and let rise again. When light, fill the baking-pans and let rise again. Bake in a moderate oven. This recipe makes three large loaves, and is a standard, economical loaf cake. FiioxHEi) O RANGE CREAM.—Make EA SOUP.—Take a pint of cream very sweet put it over the lir« let it just boil. Put the juice of a large orange, in which a bit of the peel has been previously steeped, into each glass (they must be narrow and deep like jelly glasses), and when the cream is almost cold pour from a teapot upon the juice, holding it as high as possible. a quart, of shelled peas boil the pods in a gallon of cold wa ter until all the substance is boiled out of them then skim them oHt, and put two pounds of beef into the pot. After the meat is boiled to shreds, skim the soup well, strain and return it to the pot add the peas with a little parsley, and let it simmer until the peas are quite tender season with pepper and salt thicken with a little butter and flour, let it(boilup once and serve. BOSTON ROWN BREAD.—Take two cups of rye meal (not flour), four cups of yel low corn meal, add warm water enough to make a batter stiff as you can stir it. The water in which squash or pumpkin has been boiled makes excellent, bread if vou have 1101 cooked squash or pump kin use clear water. Add one gill of mo lasses to the batter, a teaspoonful of salt and half teaspoonful of soda, dissolved in a tablespoonful of boiling water, and a teacupful of home-made yeast. Let the bread rise over night and till vcrv light, then put into deep iron pans and smooth over the top with cold water. Let it rise a little longer, and then bake for six hours in a slow oven. It is bet ter to make late in the day, and leave all night in the oven. Take out before the morning fire is made, wrap in a cloth, steam awhile. Serve hot for breakfast. The Late Henry Giles. The Rev. Henrv Giles, who died re cently in Boston, was a brilliant ami scholarly Irishman, who lived a sad life for many years. He was a Unitarian clergyman, but never had a settlement, his unfortunate deformity standing 111 his way. Mr. Giles was a dwarf and hunchback, with a large bead, swarthy complexion, and heavy features, lie married a wife about thirty years ago, as the resultof a courtship conducted entirely by letter. The lady fell in love with his intellect as seen in his writings, and they exchanged many letters, and never met till thev came together to get married. They lived in apparent lui| piness for some years, when Mr. Giles had the still further misfortune to be stricken with paralysis. He lost the use of his legs from this, and by a second stroke which followed later was deprived of all power of motion otherwise. In this way he lived a longtime, duiin which bis wife died and left him almost literally alone in the world. Mr. Giles is described as a natural orator, and had a good analytical mind, as well as decided rhetorical talent. A Great Moral L.esson. At a meeting of some colored Metho dists in Kentucky it was decided to make a collection. The president passed the hat himself, and, in order to encourage the others, he put in a 10 cent piece.
