In this con ation It is interesting to recall the fact tint before the outbreak of the rebellion Senator Wdell introduced a bill in Congress appropria ting 30,000,000 for that purpose. Ho wanted to make a slavo etato of it. Nothing ever ime of tho measure. It is Interesting to re all tlio that in 1323 Spain wai willing t cede Cuba to the United States in return for some tmmer:laj concessions, but our government would not consent. IN THE BEGINNING. Dr. W. J. Boecher, of Auburn theological iemtnary, tells his students that when he be , 11 reading religious newspapers thero were plenty of leaden of rcllgioua thought who tr strenuously affirming that, unless the rth and sklei a ere fitted up in their present nipt in the spaoe of 144 hours by the dock, tn Bible was a lie, and all religion was a fraud. "lo-day," he uyi, "nearly every one la con- Inead that the process of bringing our system Into being lasted through lone oerioda of time, ""J that this view is entirely consistent wifh " Bible and with aU taored truths," THE WHEAT CHOP.

The plant in Missouri has evidently beeu badly damaged by cold weather. Wisconsin reports a falling off in the aereago of spring wheat, as the farmers are giving greater attention to tlio dairy. Dakota and Minnesota have a larger acrcago than last year, and thero Is a prosper of the largest yield for yoars, no damago from insects being reported from any point.

Ono of tho present styles known as the 'Forgo" has tho apiiearanco of having beeu hammered by a blacksmith, and hence its name. A pen glides over its undulating sur face without any trouble. Ol It NATIVE WOOD. ' There are in the United States :)H varieties of oak, 34 of pine, 1) of llr, 5 of spruce, 4 of hem lock, 2 of pcrsommon, 12 of ash, 18 of riillow, and II of poplar. Tho New York museum of natural bistiuy is to have a cmpl"to collection of tfie native woods of our cnlini country. Tho logs are being prepared in the arsenal at Cen tral Park. Tiny are, fur the most part, live feet lung. At 0110 end a section of half tlio thh'kiiCHS of the log is n moved. In this way the longitudinal and transverse graining aro both shown. Thero is a! a diagonal cut on the section, which displays that graining also. The n maimli r of the log remains in its natu ral condition, with the lark attached. TIN DEI'OSITS IN THE I'NITEO STATES.

Moro than half the cnlTco sold is artificially colored, and tho health eiflicers of New York have made soluo B'artliiig discoveries. They procured samples of tho coloring matter Used, and of tho ituroaste I lii'ans so treated. They found that the coloring matter contained both arsenic and lead, also chrome yellow, l'ruHaiaii blue, yellow ochre, umber, Venetian Jed, lamp black, gum Arabic, soapstonu and charcoal. The di alers try to uiako tho cheaper grade of colTec resemble the genuine Java, which has a yellow color produced by tho long voyage. Several of the large coffee houses in New York claim that while they color their Coffeo they nan no injurious dyes, Tho matter will bo thoroughly investigated. nK.tI.lND I'OK FACTS. The erratic Journalist who objected to fact "because (hoy hampered a writer," will soon find his occupation gone. 1'coplo of the pres ent day want their fiction in tho shatio of fic tion, and they will stand a good deal of it. but there never was a tinio when thero was such a universal demand fur facts. In this country tho writers who command the widest circle of readers aro practical, wcll-pnstoti, biminess-liko men who know how to bundle attractively the salient points of Interest about people, places and things. The country is going ahead with such a rush that people havo the keenest, live liest curiosity to keep up with it. This ac counts for tho popularity of newspapers. What tho mod rn reader wants spread out before him every day is a map of busy life, its fluctua tions and vast Concerns. TIIECIIOI.KIt.t. Tho periodical pestilence scare is familiar to everybody. This yi'ar tho rumors como early. Well delliicd cases of cholera arc reported in eastern Eurnpo and Asia, and at Marseilles and other French ports active preventive measures have becu taken. Now thero is no sense in a premature alarm, lint wo have a long sum mer before us, and Egypt the nursery of tho disease Is giving It a terriblo vitality ami start ing it out betimes on its death dealing march. While medical men havo their doubts as to tho pathology of cholera itself, thoro is no doubt that Its allies aro famine, filth, cold, and dampness, and the first outbreaks in any coun try aro generally In the slums of the great cities. When tho pestilence once gets started, however, every wayward brocze carries it into tho dwellings of the rich, and into the health- lost localities. Prevention (s better than cure, and it is not too soon to begin tho work. Vigi lance and cle inliness at our seaports, and In our inland cities and towns will preserve us not ouly from a cholera visitation but from many other dreaded summer diseases. If the sanitary authorities will put in their work wel1 during the next thirty days, all will be well. trnAT THE BUEWER9 SAY. For some years the temperance peo ple have teen getting the b?t of John Barleycorn in a comparison of statistic. This has stirred up the United States Brewers' association, and that body ba recently published a queer volume enti tled ''The Real and Imaginary Effects of Intemperance." It is a (statistical sketch of wme interest. The author coucludei from omcial fUurei in the rev- nue department that intemperance is lecreasing. In 1870 tho consumption of distilled spirits in this country was aliout five quarts per capita, and in 1880 it was but turee and a half. 'In addition to this proof the book Bpeakt of the cus tom of ilfty yoars ago, when every house kept liijuor on hand, whon all visitors wure giveu liquid refreshments, and when all harvest hunds considered a jug of rum and water as part of the refresh ments to be furnished by their cinphyor, Koporta from fifty-four asylums contain ing 3u',973 pntionU show thut 2,588 in mates were mndo insane by inteniper, nco, or loss than seven per cent of tho whole number, lhat beer drinking leads to spirit eirnikiiig is answered by figures showing that in Munich where the annual consumption of beer is 253 quints per capita, out of 10,000 hospital patients only twenty-one were eufforors from alcoholintii. Thut drunkeness is the chief cause of poverty is opposed by tlio statement tlmt, according to tho Mawachusetia census, of 4,312 paupers only 581 had been intemperate or tlio children of intemperate parents Tho Ilrewers' nssoeiati in will havo a biir job on hand if this statistical warfare is to bo kept up. When the medical men, prison wardens and judges of tlio crimi nal court are hoard from, tlio temper ance people will have the best of the argument.

Largo quantities of cggB are being sent here from Germany, owing to the scarcity of home product. American peoplo should at onoe strike on these foreign eggs. Having been laid by bens living under monnrehial form of govern ment, and fed on brewery slops, they are liablo to contain treason, intoxication and pin worms. Those things are worse than the littlo trichina to bo found in our pork. What star-spangled American citizen would eat ono of these foreign eggs, and thus go baok on the loyal United States hen ? Let ns burl these debilitated eggs bock to Bismarck, and not send them to onr reisohstagg. Not a darn reischstagg. Don't let's even throw those eggs at lecturers and bad actors. Let them lay on our docks and spoil, and send them baok with our de fiance with a big "D." Don't eat a con founded egg unless there ia a certificate accompanying it from the American hen that laid it, witnessed by the rooster who saw it laid. We can never be free men as long as we allow Bismarck to refuse onr hams and sausage, and force upon ns bis old back number eggs. Let na form societies with a bloody oath, or at least an oath oovered with egg yolk, that we will see Bismarck in Copenhagen bo fore we will eat bis confounded egg3. We need not mean any disrespect to the German hens. Let them como over and be naturalized, and lay eggs here, and we will eat tbem.but never, as long as they are laid on German soil, under Bismarck.

Foreign Seamen A good deal has beon said and printed of late about tlio superiority of non British over British seamon. Conse quently, BritiBh sailois have been hold ing great demonstrationo in South Shields against the employment of for eigners to the exclusion of natives. They allege that foreign teamen nro pre forred becanso they are, as a rule, of a more quiet dispooition, and submit to bo overworked, half-starved, aud ill-used. Moreover, it is said that there is no or ganized gang of crimps who virtually buy and sell foreign seamen, and who become rich by a process very olosoly resembling slave-dealing.

NHW FNI3 f.ANIIKH ITTH A NOTO IttOl N I llAUACTliU TO n.UillT, The llrsprrnito's I'ersiinslve Way el nr. rolii .Vlnnrv nnd .Inning frlead-Trr ll.ullr l'rlhirnrd .tiro. From tho Oalveston News. Aliout tlio your 1851 tho most influen tial man in Ban Antonio was an alleged desperado named Iiob Augustine. Bob camo to San Anonio with a (earful rec ord. Ho oujnycd the reputation of hav ing killed a dozen or so of men, and was respected accordingly. Willie be was in Hun Antonio bo diel not reduce the cen sus ut all, lint that was not his fault. Ho hod a seductive way of drawing bis eiglilee n-incli Arkansas toothpick and ixiiminiiig it critically with sinister Mnilo while humbly rcfpiPHting tho lean of $!. Thus it was that Hob went about ncipiiring wealth and warm personal friends, but creating no funerals. There wero rumors that Bob was playing bluff. mil mat was alter bo baa marched away. It was during the reign of Bob An gUHtiuo, "tho long-ranged roarer of Cal nvcras Canyon," as he sometimes called himself, that a young man from Boston, lmiuetl John Wintlirnp, camo to San Antonio, presumably ia search of health, as ho brought very littlo with him. lie was fur Bono in coiisumntion. and nothing but that he had a short time to live, unless the climate of Western Texas saved him, induced him to como to Ban Antonio. As cvervbex.lv carried a Dia putling ou a clean shirt. II, sit. as ttii Kin VMflll Slllltld DjVJTJ mWfJ 111 it and no one was the wiser for it. On the contrary, Wintlirnp was looked np to by tlio best citizens just tho same as ii bu was loaded down with deadly weap ons. Of course cver body tried to make tho stranger from Massachusetts feel as eotufoi'tiible as if he was at home, so he was told all ubout Bob Augustine, the long-ranged roarer, at least ton times a day, nnd ho was advised not to be par ticular iu asking security for the debt in ruxo tho roarer wanted to borrow a small limn unless ho (Winthrop) did not wish to regain his health. The loiig-rnngcd roarer sauntered into Windmill's room at tho hotel, but be fore tho desperado could open his mouth ' or draw a weniion the unfortnnt.te 1 Yuiiki'o threw back his coat and with ' trembling fingers tugged at his pistW I holster to get at his money to appease tho would-bo assassin. On the other ' hand, as soon as the roarer saw Win- tlirop trying to get out his pistol he turned as palo as a ghost. The alleged desperado's knees knocked together, the cold sweat boiled out all over him, and ho extended his baud and said trem lilingly: "Don't draw, gored Mr. Yankee. I was only trying to fool yon. My bold Arkansas heart beats for you, my boy, I jest wauted to teach you a lesson. Never let any durued galoot get the drop on you. If anyboely insults you jtiHt tell tliem that Bob Augustine, the roarer, is your friend." Winllirop, who was more scared, ii posKihlo, tluin tho roarer, roplied: "Oil, I'll give you what you want," and kept ou tugging at the holster, which camo unbuckled. With a yell of dismay the dosperado passed out through, the window, carry mg tiff tho sash, and ran down Com nusloru street, tho principal thorough fare, with the sash on his nock, howling "Polico I police I" closely pursued by Winthrop, who kept ou tugging at his holster, trying to get ont his money, ha believing that the desperado was run ning to his room to procure a shotgun with which to commit murder. All that afternoon Winthrop kept on hunting thn roarer, to purchase peace on any terms, nud tho ronrer hid himself to avoid tho pistol of tho Boston man. Next mnruiug the long-range roarer of tho Calaveras canyon was missing, and Wiiilliroii was the lion of the dav for having run off tho terror of the Alamo city. Fate of the Lepers, The Hawaiian kingdom has a lepet population ot 2,000. Of these less than one-half aro in onatody. There is no physician on the island who knows enough about leprosy to convince any other physician that the truth has been reached. There ore no white lepers nudor restraint, and probably not more than 50 or GO whites are aiilioted with the disease. The chief item of the Biulget represents the snms used for the segregation and support ol confirmed . lopera. Whon loper is reported so aba polios of onr district in Hawaii, on offlour , is sent to fetch him or her to Honolulu, whera there is a detention hospital nnl on the outskirts of the city and ol the bank of the beautiful bay. Then they are examined by the doctor, who decides whether it is a oase of leprosy or not. Once declared a leper, the person is civilly dead, and the person is incapable of suing in the oottrts or being sued. At the hospital there is accommodation for ' about 120. It is filled every two months. The hospital full, a steamer comes to take to the island of Molokai those whose condition is most advauoed, there to re main until death. Tt has been my lot to witness many sad scenes, bnt none of them approached in any way those which attended the separation ot families as these handful of lepers sailed away o their exile. Daughters reached out their arms to their mothers, whom they might not embraoe ; wives held np their mouths for kisses which their husbands could not give ; babes, held in the araj of strangers, laughed and ooosd to air mothers, to whose breaking hsarts ttey might not be held to on.
