These little ones are infinitely

And one unkind word spoken to

Little children are of all crea

From the San Francisco Golden Era.
Utilizing a Jack Rabbit.
Tbt Extraordinary Story told by a Montana
Miner Useful Fishliues.
While my friend Clyde and my
self were oat in the hills back of
the Golden Gate Park last week, a
jack rabbit came along, and stop-
ped to look at us.
If I had thought to briDg my
reyolver along we would have jack
on toast for breakfast to-morrow.
Not with my consent,' he re-
can you give for
A rabbit saved my life, and I
have not killed one tince, and will
never kill one again.'
How did he manage to save your
4 Three years ago I was living in
Montana. A smeller had just been
built, and it created a demand for
silver rock. I owned a interest in
lead that had been sunk on 30 It.
Thinking that the time had come to
make it available, I concluded to
go there and get some ore and have
it tested. 1 did so ; and reached
the place just in time to take shel
ter in the mine from the terrible
hul-storm. 1 lighted my candle,
went to the bottom and went to
work. I had not been there mors
than five minutes when I heard a
noise that sounded like a cannon.
The rock over my head shook, and
in a moment the shaft behind me
caved. You can imagine my feels
ings better than ' I can describe
them, when I found myself buried
alive. 1 tremble even at this dis
tant day when I think of that mo
ment. The root of the shaft was
rocks, and when they came down
they did not pack so tight but what
the air came through. There was
nothing that I could do to release
myself. I knew that if relief did
not come from the outside 1 must
perish. No one knew 1 had gone
there. A road ran past the mouth
of the sift ; but it was not traveled
much, and I was not likely to at-
tract attention by calling ; never
theless I shouted at intervals all
djv The following morning I
commenced calling again ; and all
day, whenever thought I heard a
sound, 1 shouted.
When night came all hope3 of
being released abandoned me. One
thing added great bitterness to my
suffering. I owed quite a large
amount of money, and, should my
fate remain unknown, my creditors
would think I had fled to defraud
them, and my name would be stig
I will not dwell on the agonies
I endured ; I am sorry I cannot for
The morning of the lourth day
of my imprisonment I heard some
thing crawl into my grave. 1 light
ed my candle and saw a rabbit.
There was only one aparture large
enough to admit him; I closed it to
prevent his escape. I saw in him
food to appease my hunger, and my
hand was raised to kill him, when a
thought occurred to me that pre
vented the blow from descending,
had two fish lines; their united
lenghth would reach to the road.
I took off my ehirt, tore it into
strings, tied them together, and on
to the fish line. 1 wore a long, gold
watch chain ; I tied it on to the part
of the line that would cross the road.
I then cut several leaves from my
diary, wrote on them my condition,
and tied them on to that part of the
line that would be outside. I then
tied the end made out of my shirt
around Jack's neck and let him out.
He soon reached the end of the line,
and I knew by the way he was pull
ing that he was making desperate
attempts to escape. Soon the tug
ging stopped, and knowing gnawing
to be Jack's chief accomplishment,
I thought he had cut himself loose.
JLbout three hours afterwards I felt
the line pull, and some one called;
I tried to answer, but the hoarse
noise I made died in the cavern. I
then pulled the line to show that I
was not dead.
All grew still again, and I knew
the man had gone for assistance.
Then came the sound of voices ; I
palled in the line, and it brought
me food. It took all the men who
worked in the shaft nine hours to
A very large pine tree that stood
near the shaft had been the cause
of my misfortune. It had been
dead a number of years and the
storm had blown it over. The ter
rible blow it struck the ground had
caused the cave.
' Jack had wound the line around
a bush, and tied himself so short
that he was imprisoned outside as
securely as I had been inside. He
was taken ' to town, put in a large
cage, and supplied with all the rab
bit delicacies the market afforded.
He, however, did not thrive, and
the boys believing that he ' pined in
thought,' voted to set him free.
He was taken back to his old grid
ling grounds and liberated.
He not only saved my life, but
became the benefactor of all the
rabbits in the neighborhood the
miners refraining from shooting
any, fearing it might be him.'
Cotton Manufacture Changing Ease.
A Northern paper discusses cer
tain changes in trade and manus
factures in the North and East,
such as have been brought about by
Atlantic telegraphs, by extension
of railways, and by the varying
conditions of agriculture and the
Finally, it has to say of the man
ufacture of cotton fabric3, this :
On the other hand, certain bran-,
ches of our production have been
overdone. There are large woolen
and cotton mills which, for the past
tea years, have not paid ot per
cent, profit. The cotton mills of
Massachusetts are compelled now to
reduce their productions by onei
quarter. This means a great
change in the business at the points
of distribution and sale, such as
New York and Boston. It would
seem that throughout the world
certain articles of necessity have
been produced beyond the demand,
and for a time capital must be with
drawn from various branches of
manufacture. It is a period of ebb
and flow in the tides of capital, and
this means great uncertainty in
These remarks touch only on the
fact that cotton manufacture in the
North no longer pays as formerly.
The reasons assigned for that fact,
are, however, false
The truth is, that the rate of
wages, the cost of living, the freights
on raw material and the short work
ing year, have slowly and surely
transferred the area of profitable
cotton manufacture to the South
and the Middle States. The des
mand for the coarser fabrics, negro
wear, has also greatly fallen off, for
the freedman purchases now for him
self and buys pinchback jewelry
and kicshaws with one-half the
money with which his planting
owner bought brogans from Lynn,
linsey from Lowell, and osnaburg
from t all Kiver. This has contrib
uted to cut off the margin of profit,
and in addition thereto is the much
greater fact that capital, enterprise
and labor has been diverted in the
Southern and border States from
agricultural and planting to manu
factures. affording a home market
for the staple, gaining a home
market for the finished fabric and
findins that the saving of two
freights, or ten to twenty per cent.
in labor, and another twenty per
cent, in the working time, give
them leaves to undersell the North
ern and Eastern factory.
tlence the rapid increase and
full profits of cotton manufactures
in the South, especially North
Carolina, Georgia and .Alabama
With the aggregation of capital this
process grows faster, and with the
full .development of the cheap
coals in the Kanawha valley and in
Northern .Alabama, the progress
will be still more accelerated unti
within the next twenty -years the

Bricks Twenty Centuries Old.
A correspondent of the Cleveland
Leader, writing from Persia, says
"Coming from .Bagdad, which, in a
direct line, is forty -four miles dis
tant, three lmense mounds appear
in succession, which have the ap
pearence of natural hills, But
close examination shows that they
are composed of bricks, and are the
remains of large buildings. These
are on the east side of the Eup
hrates, and the largest is about one
hundred and fifty feet in height
Thev are suposed to be an ancient
citadel that defended this part
the town, the royal palace and
temple. How immense must the
original buildings have been, when
it is considered that these mounds
have been the storehouses from
which, for twenty centuries, bricks
of the finest description have been
taken to build the great cities c
Csesiphon, Selucia, and Bagded
Fragments of alabaster vessels and
images, fine earthernware, marble,
and great quantities of enameled
tiles, the coloring and glazing of
which are still surprisingly fresh,
can yet be found in these mounds.
On the face of every brick is stam
ped, in cauneiform, the name and
title of Nebuchadnezzar: They are
all laid face downward, and the
cement in which they are imbedded
is so hard that they can only be
detached with the greatest difficulty.
That was a funny old coincidence
that happened in Washington.
While the Democrats were jubilat
ing after the Ohio and Indiana decs
tions, so we learn from a special
telegram in the Baltimore Sun, a
queerly attired individual was seen
perambulating the avenue in the
vicinity of the White House, hav
ing, evidently, somethig in his
mind. After meditating a few mos
ments he turned round in at the
main entrance and walked up to the
front portico. He drew from a
basket, which he carried, a bottle
containing a dark looking fluid,
with which he besprinkled the
stone floor. With another drive
into his basket he brought out a
placard, on which was printed in
arge letters. "For Rent." After
affixing this to one of the columns,
and satisfied' that he " carried
the news to Hiram," he disappear
ed. .After a short time one of the
White House employes came out,
and in a melancholy manner pro
ceeded to remove the placard. Pro
bably the republican party will be
disposed to rent its interest in the
Executive Mansion for a small sum
in the nether months of tho good
Centennial year 187G. Stranger
things have happened. Will the
placard-poster be a bad prophet:

European Savans in American Insti
Prof. Proctor writes to The Acad
erny in reference to the policy of the
importation by .America or European
savans as proiessors in colleges, di
rectors ot observatories, ccc, and
remarks that at all the chief centres
of scientific culture, whether in New
England, the Middle or Western
States, he found the general sentn
ment favorable to such action. He,
however, states that while at the
college of his adoption such a per
son meets with a warm welcome, and
is regarded with special pride, as
was the case with Agassfz, elsewhere
he is looked upon with jealousy,
especially among those best able to
weigh the merits of American
science. He thinks that it is only
among the less well-informed Amern
icans that the qualities of the Amer
ican leaders in scientific research
are undervalued, and this merely
because shortcomings are imagined
which have no real existence. He
remarks that the Americans, who
are best able to judge, know that
the elaborateness of European scien
tific training is less effective than
their own more practical system
and they consider it unfair that the
claims of their best men should be
overlooked in favor of strangers.
If there was any doubt before of
the kind of statesmanship Alexander
11. btephens possesses, his recent
speech at Augusta should give the
key to the calibre of his mind. Mr.
Stephens has all his life been
much overrated man, and the power
he has wielded in the bouth has
been extraordinary in view of his
talents. His judgment is not equal
to his fluency. His eulogy of
General Grant for his action in
Louisiana was, to say the very least
of it, out of place. His endorse
ment of the third term places him
where he has almost always
been in his career, with the few
impracticables who ride strange
hobbies. Nearly all the politicians
who are silently favoring the pro
ject have something to gain by it.
Mr. Stephens has nothing but ap
pears to be actuated by a pure
spirit of contrariness.
Transfusion of Blood.
The experiment of transferring
the blood of a live lamb into the
veins of a consumptive patient was
successfully performed upon the
person of Hermann Dubois at Fall
River last week by Drs. Julius Hoff
man and Weyland, of New York
City. Every vein which is con
nected with the jugular vein of the
animal was severed and securely
tied by the physicians, so as to allow
the blood free egress to the arm of
the patient. Dr. Hoffman used a
small glass tube, about 2 inches
long, slightly curved, for the opera
tion, thus bringing the neck of the
lamb in very close proximity to the
patient's arm. The operation oc
cupied one minute and thirty-three
seconds, about 6 ouncesof blood be
ing transferred in that time. Mr.
Dubois has been afflicted with con
sumption more than two years, and
his frienns thought it best to try the
experiment as a last resort for relief.
-At last accounts the patient was
