THE JOYS OF JUNE.
Th Perfect Month, Fall of Everythiag
Rural, Verdurous and Muclcal.
The gentle spring, "hoar winter bloom
ing child," has gone away, delicious May
Is la her company, and June, "dlght In a
thin silken cassock, colored green," re
joices as the opening month of the man
hood of the year. All the powers of nature
are developed, its rigor is fresh, it is in the
full flush of beauty, it is buoyant with the
bustle of exuberant life. Each previous
month of the year has formed part of the
great preparation for the settled purpose
of this flowery time, for on all sides, in
garden, field and grove alike, there have
been ODeratlons betrun and carried on to
the perfect fullness of the beauty of the
joy of June.
Bummer glow lieth low upon heath, field, wood
Here and there in the glare, white, red, gold,
peeps from the place,
roll of Joy laughs the sky, laughs what on the
earth doth rove.
June's fine long days invite the birds to
early song, and so upon the misty morning
air there comes a cheerful sound, a mur
mur as of waters from the skies and trees
and grass. The lark, "the herald oi the
morn." resrxmds with reaay xayi ana
though Bweet Philomela is becoming dumb
and will no longer deign a song to charm
the hours of night, a host of others the
blackcap, the robin, as a matter of course.
and the rest of the summer singers give
forth their wild and pleasing airs from
bush and brake and bower. There is call
ing, cooing, wooing, singing all around.
High in the grove's embowering shade.
For love and contemplation made.
The stockdove pours his melting strain;
Whilst o'er the valley, hill and plain,
The blackbird, linnet and the thrush
Make sweetly vocal every bush.
All, heard or seen, our rapture move;
For all Is harmony and love.
Even the innocent young frogs, so long
maligned as harmful, having gone through
their wonderful transformations, rejoicing
ly leave tho water to leap about, as if in
frolicsome mood, among the grass, while
the older ones "stand at the brink," as
Dante described them, "with their jaws
only out," uttering strange jargon, not
altogether unpleasant to the ears. True,
they are called in derision Dutch night
ingales, and have been looked upon as
croakers ever since they "railed at Latona's
twin born progeny," but for all that they
add to the joy of June, It is pretty much
as Gilbert White affirmed: "Sounds do not
always give us pleasure according to their
sweetness and melody; nor do harsh sounds
always displease. We are more apt to be
captivated or disgusted with the associa
tions which they promote than with the
notes themselves." So it may be said of
the frog, as the naturalist of Selborne said
of another despised animal, it "marvel
ously delights some hearers, filling their
minds with a train- of summer ideas of
everything that is rural, verdurous and joy
ous." Peeling the Dark from Trees.
Every one knows that if we take off the
bark completely from around the trunk of
a tree it will die. Strange to say, this is
only true of about ten months in the year,
for if the bark is peeled a week or so before
midsummer the tree will immediately re
place the old bark by a layer of new.
Mehan, who makes the foregoing state
ment, says in his monthly that there is no
doubt whatever about this fact, although
to this day a large number of men, emi
nent in botanical science, will not believe
it. lie has indeed known of trees in such
a hidebound condition as to be positively
unhealthy to be completely restored by
stripping off the whole of the bark the
first or second week in June. Nature in
tended that the bark of trees should be re
moved when it is no longer of any use, and
has provided each tree with cork cells, the
development of which is the agent by
which the old bark of trees is thrown off.
When these cork cells are undeveloped, or
something occurs to prevent their proper
action, the tree becomes diseased, and it is
just in these cases when the help of man
comes in to aid the tree to throw off that
bark which nature itseit desired to inrow
off, but was unable to accomplish.
Meerschaum is a mineral existing in
many parts of the world. In Europe it is
found iu Moravia and at Sebastopol and
Kaffa in the Crimea, and in Asia it is
found abundantly and gives employment
to men who mine it. Meerschaum, from
its having been found on the seashore in
some places in peculiarly rounded snow
white lumps, was lgnorantly Imagined to
be petrified froth of the sea, which is the
meaning of its German name. It is com
posed of silica, magnesia and water. When
first dug from the earth it is quite soft and
soaplike, to the touch, and as it lathers
with water and removes grease, it is em
ployed by the Turks as a substitute for
soap In washing. After being molded into
pipes these are boiled in oil or wax and
baked until hard.
Mean and Solar Time.
Owing to the inclination of the earth's
axis and its unequal movement in its orbit,
solar days vary fh their length. The av
erage solar day corresponds to the twenty
four hours of our clocks, which keep what
is called mean time. If a clock were so con
structed so as to give the real solar time
for all periods of the year, it would be ob
served that sometimes when the solar
clock pointed at noon the ordinary clock,
keeping mean time, would be pointing at
figures between 11:45 and 13, or at other
times between 13 and 12:15. Four times
each year, however, the two clocks would
coincide, and correct noonmarks can be
made Dec 24, April 15, June 14 and Sept.
1, and a shadow of a dial or uoonmark
would point dne south at noon by the
A recent estimate places the number of
women acting ai postmistresses in the
United States 6,835, of which number 4C3
are in Pennsylvania and 400 in Virginia.
North Carolina stands third with 223. Only
five other states have over 200 each, 256 in
Ohio, 243 in New York, 216 in Georgia, 210
in Texas and 209 in Kentucky. Alaska
has only 1 and Rhode Island and Oklahoma
have 10 each.
Fastest Possible Railroad Time.
An English magazine, The Engineer,
submits statements to prove that eighty
miles an hour is the highest possible speed,
giving the following argument to prove its
points: "An eminent American authority
says that with a smooth, solid and staple
trackway and improved mechanism there
appears to be no reason why trains may
not attain a rpeed of 100 miles an hour."
THY THE SOAP CUBE.
THE BEST REMEDY FOR CERTAIN
BLEMISHES OF THE COMPLEXION.
The 111 Effects of Wearing Black Not
Veils How to Cure Pimples and to
Prevent Freckles Some Secrets of tho
Copyright, 18H2, by American Press Associa
tion.! HOSE who take care
of health do not need
Many women are much troubled by
little black specks about the mouth and
nose called "blackheads." Some ascribe
to them the romanticism of ill health.
I regret to say that they are simply dirt
the result of soft coal and winds im
pregnated by black soil, aided by the
wearing of little nose veils, which, were
they white, would by their looks give
some warning of their condition.
The best way to get rid of them is to
make a stiff lather of some clean, hon
est soap and water, hot as ever you can
bear it. With a toothbrush rub gently
(in a rotary manner) the parts affected
once a day for three or four days, then
less and less often till they disappear.
The soap should be left on all night.
The treatment will redden the skin
naturally, but that disappears in a few
moments. For the persistent ones, rub
well in a little Holland gin with a soft
white cloth. On no account squeeze
out a blackhead. This but makes the
pore larger for a larger epeck next
time. Those who are subject to black
heads must use soap.
Those little impish pimples that usual
ly pop up the day of the party or when
one's best fellow is coming to town may
be stopped (for the time) by a little alum
dissolved in water applied through the
day. Sulphur applied in the same way
and camphorated vaseline are also prompt
cures. As pimples, however, are an in
dication that the blood is not in good
condition, that should be attended to at
once. As camphorated vaseline is con
ducive to superfluous hair, it must be
used as sparingly as possible.
The more difficult pimples should be
allowed to ripen perfectly, then squeezed
till bright, fresh blood comes, showing
that all bad matter has been drawn off.
When squeezed too soon the skin is
marked and the pimples soon reappear.
The most commonly seen form of
pimple and blotch is a form of acne. It
is caused by imperfect circulation and
digestion. It can be almost wholly
cured in a few weeks even after several
years' standing by persistent steaming,
hard rubbing with a coarse crash towel
and the application of a good facial
soap at night. Rub the soap in with a
stiff shaving brush, leave on all night
and wash off in the morning with very
hot water and rough towel. Alcohol
and camphor, once a day perhaps, also
aid in the cure. No creams or oily sub
stances should be used.
Regular daily gymnastic exercises
should be pursued, with special motions
to strengthen the stomach and abdomen.
here being the seat of the trouble. If
neglected, acno becomes chronic and in
curable. I know a lady of fifty who
has been steadily treated for six years,
while a girl of seventeen who has had it
in its worst form for four years was al
most wholly cured in six weeks by tho
use of facial soap, Turkish baths, local
steam baths and regular gymnastic and
Freckles can be made to disappear
The old treatment of freckles consist
ed in peeling off the skin. This made a
babylike complexion for a week or two,
but the skin being made by this means
superfine, the enemy returned with in
creased strength in color and number.
A modern method treats freckles as
being little clots of iron settled under
the skin which the sun draws to the
surface. Dy the use of tonics and skin
foods the clots are dispersed and driven
back into the system to join with the
other red corpuscles. This I have seen
successfully done a score of times. (May
heaven bless the inventor!) By the use
of a tonic occasionally, once dispersed
the freckles will not reappear.
Women like the idea of steaming. It
is heroic and quick; but it does not act
equally with all, and must be used in
moderation or it dries the skin. For ex
tremely oily skins or to give a thorough
ly clogged skin a heroic start it is bene
ficial. The best way to accomplish it is
to hold the face over a deep, narrow pan
of very hot water, with a towel over all
to keep in the steam. Fifteen minutes
is sufficiently long.
Some are benefited by dashing the
face with very hot and very cold water
alternately. For some this is but a
temporary excitement and deadens the
It is well to avoid a constant and care
less washing with soap and water. Ilere
again individual experience must be had.
A coarse, gTeasy skin may be washed
once a day; once a week is sufficient for
others. Great care should be used in
the choice of soaps. Any kind that bites
the tongue is harmful to the complexion.
The best kind tastes like olive oil sweet
and smooth. Spanish olive oil or pure
white castile from some reliable house
are both good. One rub of the soap over
the cloth is sufficient. Even then water
should be shaken over it to prevent its
direct contact with tho skin. The face
cannot bo too well washed off after soap.
Most of the roughing, chapping and
other damage, especially to hands fre
quently washed, is the result of imper
fect rinsing and drying.
Most women wash the neck and hands
too much in lathers of soap. They may
find these parts to have become aged
much more than the face in consequence.
Plain water often is sufficient to rihse
off the hands, and cocoa butter will be
found a good cleanser of those dark
rims made around the neck by furs and
ribbon. Fuwie Edgar Thomas.
