When I was alive that is to say, . before my body had coaaed to exist ana my eouiaaa gone upon imjuui- ney Into tht great unknowable I had curious theory, tho truth of which I an now about to put to the test by practical experienpe, and it was this: I believed that if one's soul could but re-visit this earth and find that ita one-time companions were happy and regretted its flight heavenward, how much more peace fully could the spirit return to the beyond, and cheerfully take up its place among the Immortals. It afforded me much pleasure to spec ulate upon this; theory, and it will giv me comfort to know that all the fellow-creatures with whom I once associated when my soul was en cased in an earthly tenement still think of me as I shonld have been, not as I was, i. e., faultless and gen- oroua, numuie ana Hou-Huuiiui-iuB, kind and good. You may say there is a sort of grim or deathly humor about my introductory'reflections. That shows that you are still in the world and not out of it as I have been for what you of the living call five years. We do not, in my present sphere, reckon time as you do; years with us aro bnt sands in the illimit able space of eternity. To mo this grim humor if you can call it humor is as natural as breathing would bo to you. I am only indulg ing in reflections and speculative fancies that we, of tho spirit land, occasionally fall into, just tho reverse of what you of tho earth think in regard to the Great Beyond. You may imagine I am about to reveal the secrets of eternity, but you will be mistaken if you continue in that though, although I am a spirit, and possess, In common with my follows the powers, the onenesB, and the ethereality of an indefinite object, yet there is a point beyond which even I cannot go, and upon my lips has been sot the seal of the f Spirit, whose power all les.spiril8 bow down before and l, i r i t i : acknowledge, and I think sir . , ' iyiy Bjiuntviug nf mirnolf orirl r T, aot committing to my opiuiu;- fellow spirits in any "way whatsoever that the wisdom of tho Great Spirit in thus locking up tho secrets of oternity from the covetous eye of man is beyond all doubt unquestionable. What good would this knowledge do mankidd? "Would it make them any tho more happy in life, or more willing to face death? Unquestionably not!

What bitter thoughts has it not engendered, what foolish and wicked doctrine has it not been the meanB of promulgating, what mil lions of souls has it not precipitated into eternity ? The All-Wise has, In justice and mercy drawn an Impen etrable veil between earth and heayen, which for the earthly con tentment of mankind, must not be rent asunder save by the soul. Every one has been put upon the earth for some purpose known only to tho infinite ; and when immortal knowl edge granted to mankind the chains of life might become insnpportable and lead mankind to self-destruction an act that forfeits eternal happi ness, for it assumes the power which is the Dreroeative of the Almighty only, namely ; the sever ing of the mortal from the Immortal I Heigho I Here I've een moralizing into space, for I don't know how long, when I should have been on my earthly journey.

She doesn't wear weeds, and she hasn't oven a widow's cap oncher head in point of fact she is dressed as.though she expected some very dear friend, my son George, perhaps, who went to China some years beforo I died.

As alcoholicdrinka have happily long been driven from the harvest field8,tbere have been various drinks besides water substltuted.but scarce ly any of them meeting fully the conditions sought for iu the way of a wholesome, satisfying beverage. Water, even iu all its purity, does not seem to quench the thirst and stimulate tho body, as it produces additional perspiration and passes through the pores almost like pass ing through a colander, leaving the system exhausted and weak ; besides a drink of cold water,when suffering under a great Jegrec of heat, is dan gerous, even at times producing sudAen death. Latterly in England and elsewhere a drink is prepared by mivincr nut-meal with wafer, in the proportion of three or, Jour ounces to a gallon of water. This is found" not onlyTo satisfy"the thirst better than water, or molasses and water, even when tempered with vinegar or other acid.but to produce additional strength of body.

What an Old Woman Heard. A droll mistake was made by an imaginative ofd dame, who, having permitted a telegraph pole to pe placed on the top of her house.wait ed upon the chief of tho telegraph company concerned to complain that she could get no sleep of a night, being kept awake by tho noise made by tbe messages passing over her head. "I 'don't think, sir," said sho, "you can be aware of all that's said along them wires. There's a deal that hadn't ought to be. I can assure you, sir, that very much that's said there, that I have to lie and listen to, is such as no decent woman ouKht to hear; and I hope you will ThVamused gentleman was hardly . i- !1 l able to meet the accusation with due gravity ; but he did contrive to neap his countenance while he Informed the old lady that tho young men who had hithcrty worked tho wires were under notice of dismissal, and that in future only young women of irreat respectability would be em ployed, so there would be no danger of her propriety being shocked any longer. Chambers' Journal. The Louisville Courier-Journal, speaking of the results of therepub lican national convention, says : "Whatever may be said to the discredit of the republican party, it must be allowed that, during twenty vearB' sailing upon dangerous seas, it has encountered extraordinary good fortune and displayed unusual skill in emergencies.

Conrtnlilp la Greenland. There Is something exceedingly melancholy in the accounts which are given of the custom of courtship in Greenland. Generally women en tor noon tho blessed estate with more willingness and less solicitude than men. The women of Green land are an exception to this rulo. A Greenlander, having fixed his affections upon some female, ac quaints his parents with the stato of his heart. They apply to tho pa rents of tho gljfl, and If the parents are thus far agreed the next pro ceeding is to appoint two female negotiators whose duty is to broach the subject to tho young lady, ims iB a matter of great tact and delica cy. The lady ambassadors do not shock the young lady to whom they are sent by any sudden or abrupt avowal of the awful subject of fheir mission. Instead of doing this they launch out in praises of tho gentle man wno seeKB ucr uuu. au, speak of the splendor of his house, tho sumptuousness of his furniture, of his courage and skill in catching seals, and other accomplishments. The lady, pretending to be affronted pvnn At these remote hints, runs away, tearing the ringlets of hair as she retires, while the ambassadress es, having got tho consent of her parents, pursue her, take uer uy force to the house of her destined husband and thero leave her. Com pelled to remain there sho sits for days with dishevelled hair, silent and dejected, refusing every kind of sustenance, till at last, if kind en treaties do not prevail, she is com pelled by force, and even by blows, to submit to the detested union. In some cases the Greenland women faint at the proposals of marriage; in others they fly to the mountains and only return when compelled to do so by tho hunger and cold. If one cuts off her hair it is a sign that she is determined to resist to death. The Greenland wife is tho slave of her husband, doomed to a life of toil, drudgery and privation. Health la Summer. wi i amkmi?e golly here. Now that s ..nairionta of crowded cities an towns cannot be too careful as to their diet and personal habita. The danger from sunstroke or exhaus tion is not very great for people in ordinary health, but any physician will endorse the statement that too crmat care cannot be exercised to ward off those diseases which in evitably follow imprudence during tbe heated term. Too many people observe the same roles of living in the dog daysyhat they do Mn the bracing atmosphere of fall and win ter, and, as a rule, they pay dearly for their imprudence. Even in the matter of clothing but little care is taken to provide againBt sudden changes of temperature, or during periods, of intense heat to reduce the temperature of the body. Many persons also expose themselves to the sun in the moBt reckless manner, while others are equally imprudent as to the kind and equality of their food. The latter is a most impor tant consideration. Tho simpler and more nourishing the food the better; yet how few restrict them selves or show the least discrimina ion in selecting the supplies for their tables during the summer months. Frequent bathing, moder ate exercise, abstention as far as possible from all excitement, rigid supervision of drainage, cleanliness not only in the living rooms of tbe house, but in all the obscure places about the premises these are safe guards which no person, however robust in health, can afford to disregard. The list of ills that fol low the neglect of these ordinary precautions is very long, and all are bbHohb in their effect upon the human frame. Ex. The Council Bluffs Nonpareil, the strongest Grant paper in Iowa, has the following to say of the Chicago result: The ticket nominated at Chicago on Tuesday is one upon which all opposing forces can unite without the sacrifice of a single prejudice or the breach of a single principle. Gathering around their new leader we shall seo the power of Grant, the chivalary of Blaino and tho worth of Sherman and Edmunds. Their forces will battle for him as they battled for themselves, and with a united party, under a banner on whose surface there Ib neither rent nor stain, the grand old republican party will march onward to a glor ious victory. In general, pride is at the bottom of all great mistakes. All the other passions do occasional good, but wherever pride puts in ita word, everything goes wrong, and what might be desirable to do quietly and innocently, it is morally dangerous to do proudly, Ruskin, CTMM,.,.- - ( t Rates of Advertising.
