THE DAXISH FARMER.
Lire as it is in the family of the Peasantry. The penastry of Denmark are divided into four distinct classes, namely, the "Gaardmand" (pronounced Gorman), or yeoman farmer, who either owns or rents from thirty to eighty -five acres (English); secondly, the "Farcelist," who owns or rents from eight to thirty acres: thirdly, the "Husmand" or cottager, with from one to eight aores; aud lastly, the "In sider," who generally rents his cottage and garden plot; and from this last class it is that the laboring men are prin cipally drawn. Until marriage the laboring men are fed and lodged upon the farm where they work, and in one of the buildings jnst referred to are the dormitories for the "Kare," of which upon such a farm there would be about twelve, besides the foreman ; there, too, is the roomy kitchen, and the refectory, where these stalwart hungry youths are fed; and particularly well fed, too, par taking of no less than five good meals a day. At 6 in the morning their break fast is served, consisting of huge slices of bread and butter cnt by a macine i with coffee, and a small glass of "snaps," or corn brandy; on the island of Zealand this early meal is a kind of thick soup made of rye bread and beer, with which a salt herring is eaten. At noon dinner, which is soup or porridge, followed by meat, or codfish, or pork, with vegetables and beer; at 4 P. M.. bread and butter, cheese, beer, and more snaps, and finallv, a supper of porridge with milk. Would that all our own farm hands fared as well ! The foreman's wages amounts to 200 kroner, or 11 2s. 6d. per annum, the ordinary ' 'karle's" to 8 6s. per annum; and as their main expense is their clothes, which, being chiefly of durable home spun, are not costly, they contrive as a rule to have considerable savings by the time they marry, and this they seldom do before 30. The farm hands are hired by the half year, and the whole system has hitherto worked to the mutual satisfaction of both laborer and employ er. This, however is greatly due to the fact that there exists a code of hiring laws which provides an easy settlement of all disputes between master and man. Every servant, farm or domestic, is under these laws compelled to keep a book which is officially registered, and wherein are written all his or her certi ficates of character, each one of which is necessarily countersigned by the magis trate of the district wherein the master or mistress resides. The Gaardmand's homestead is sub stantial, sqnare and thatched; the barns, stables, &o., are joined to it, forming to gether a quadrangular farmyard, with the entrance gate facing the dwelling. At the back is a garden, usually of about three-quarters of an acre, devoted to fruit, vegetables and hops, with a few roses and gilly flowers near the house door. A farmer working from sixty to eighty acres will have upon his farm two "karles," a boy, and two girls for the dairy; all of whom are helped in their work bv their master and his family. Generally such a farmer keeps upon his laud fifteen or more cows, four sheep, four horses and two goats, for every farmer is a horse breeder more or less. The poultry is his wife's care nnd per quisite, and forms a highly important item in her yearly budget. These farms, when ownd by the yeoman, are, gener ally speaking, mortgaged for half their value, a fact to be attributed in most in stances to the repeal of the law of primo geniture. At present the parent is per mitted, if he pleases, to leave one-third of his property to his eldest son, a clause in the law of inheritance much appre ciated and in general use. As the valua tion for probate is extremely low, the oldest son generally raises a loan with which to buy out his brothers and sisters, with their consent, and the race being a practical one, endowed with generous instincts, this modified form of "partage force," does not appear as yet to pro duce the jealous feuds, or to work the evil it is known to do in other countries; though as indeed the system has not been long in force, it is perhaps rash to predict that it may effect no change for the -worse during tie lapse ol & century. In cases where a loan is impossible ow ing to a previous mortgage, subdivision steps in, and in some instances has been repeated until the minimum area hns been reached under the new law already referred to. Necessarily if the family be numerous, and all elect to retain their share in the land, they sink to the position of Husmand and have to resort to a trade to eke out their livelihood. Slionld, however, a younger member of the family have had the good luck to have married the child of a wealthy Gaardmand with a good dowry, then the newly married pair proceed to buy a smftll farm of about twenty-five and become Parcelists. acres, HER LOST DIAMONDS. A Xevr York Woman's Season of I'n easiness in Richmond. A few days ago a wealthy Xew Yorker, accompanied by his wife, arrived in this city and stopped at th" Hotel Murphy. They occupied a Li ' me suite of looms on the principle doors and lived on the best that Col. Murphy could furnish. They spent their time while here in visiting places of interest and taking daily drives. The lady arose one morning, and as was going down to breakfast, missed her diamonds, which she had left on the cabinet when she retired the night be fore. Every place was searched, but the jewels could "not be found. The hus band sent a messenger for Detective Jack Wren, who promptly responded. Mr. Wren took the case in hand. " He examined the surroundings and satisfied himself that no one had entered the room during the night. In response to questions the lady said that they were at Hollywood on the previous evening, and took a 6troll through the cemetery grounds. Mr. Wren accompanied by the husband, drove on to Hollywood, thinking, perhaps, the lady might have lost the diamonds while walking around the grounds. The grass and wnlks were closely ex amined, but after several hours had been spent in the search without finding any thing they returned to the city. Mr. Wren upon reaching the hotel, went to the visitors' room and told the lady that he was satisfied the diamonds were on her person and requested her to go into her bed-room and take off her wearing apparel to see if she could find them. The lady retired and after a- short ab sence she burst into the room, her face wreathed in smiles, aud holding up to view the sparkling gems, exclaimed: "I have them." The lady, after gaining her composure., stated that when she took off her underwear the diamonds fell to the floor. The mystery was solved and the disappearance of the jewelry was easily explained. The lady, when she retired the night before, placed a lace collar on top of the jewelry, anil when she took up the collar nixt morn ing to put it on tue jewelry accidentally caught in the meshes of the larje, and when the lady put on the collar the jewelry dropped down into her bosom. The gentleman had paid Mr. Wren a retainer, with the understanding to pay more if the diamonds were found. As soon as they were brought to light he promptly handed over to Mr. Wren the amount he had agreed to pay. Richmond State. A Sight to See. A curious eight was to see daring the rain a w t timbrel' a leaning against the wall outside a railroad office on Wash ington stret-t. A country visitor did not wish to carry the dripping head pro tector within the precincts of the office, and there it remained for fully a half hour without molestation. Hundreds were the questive glances cast at the tempting article, nnd occasionally some pedestrian tin supplied with such protec tion would advance a step or two toward it, but would then draw back and go his way, evidently thinking it was a trap. Had the countryman left it inside the door or in any less prominent place it would undoubtedly have disappeared almost immediately upon leaving his hand, bat there it was scenre, and has probably settled the vexed question as to the safest place to leave an umbrella. Botlvn Budget, THE LOG CABIX CAMPAIGN. Reminiscences of a Remarkable Con test Xearly Haifa Century Ago. From the Louisville Courier. More than forty years have come and gone since the log cabin, hard cider and coon skin campaign of 1840. This was a remarkable event in the history of our country. Gen. Harrison was elected over Mr. Van Buren almost by acclamation, having carried nineteen states out of twenty-two. Hon. Bailev Peyton of Tennessee called to see Gen. Harrison at North Bend after he was nominated at Harris burg, Pa. Teyton went to Cincinnati and made a speech. In this speech he said he had been to see the Whig nom inee; that he was the man they wanted. He said he lived in a log cabin, with the lutch string never pulled in, a barrel of hard cider to treat his friends, and coon skins nailed over the cracks in the walls to keep the wind away. Old Joe Harrison (no kin to the Gen eral) owned the Six-mile House, below Cincinnati, where the United States flag had floated for forty vears. This was the great resort for fast horses, tight men, aid lovely women. Joe saw a point and at once built the first log cabin. This was the first; in a few weeks there were hundreds built all over the country. On May 18th Whigs met at the Gait House to make arrangements to build a log cabin. In a short time plenty of funds were raise 1 for the purpose. Col. John O. Cochran. Chief Marshal: George D. Prentice of the Journal, Birney Marshall of the Gazette, Assist ant Marshals; George L. Bobards and James McDonald, architects and build ers. William O'Hara's band was in at tendance. It consisted of drums and fifes, four horns and two bass, 200 boys with as many axes. Each appointed himself a committee of one. With twenty teams we left the city, proceeded down Jefferson street, then south to Broadway, into Bullitt's woods. We cut twenty trees. With ox and horse teams to haul them, the line of march was one mile long. We brought the whole tree and cut it up at the place where Itufer's Hotel now stands. This was one of the jolliest davs of the "Falls City." There were all sorts of people there, from the highest to the lowest. and all seemed to take a hand in the log cabin. It seemed to me that hard cider was quite strong for many of the boys fell at the nrst hre, and by the wayside, but there was no quarreling. Birney Marshall and Hiram Bay led the van each with a loug pole, driving old Meek's ox team ; Bill O'Hara, with his band of life and dram I would like to see such a band to-day. The du6t was two inches deep, and when the van nearer the city you would have thought it was Birnam woods moving on Mucbeth's castle, as every Whig earned a large bush. At the setting sun our cabin was finished, and in the presence of 5,000 people Gov. Poindexter and Charles M. Thurston made the first iog- cabin speeches. Prof. Candy and his glee club, with the song of "Tippecanoo and Tyler toV set all the people wild. I thought Goodby Mattie (as Old Hickory called Van Buren). I said Hear is not at the Hermitage, old hero. The air become full of the sounds of the different glee songs, composed by Prof. Candy. The woods resounded with songs of birds and the voices of the women and children. Those glee songs had more power over the mind than the Gospel song of to-day has in the churches. There was something in this Presidential campaign of 1840 that was remarkable the good feeling one party had for the other; there being but few homicides, if any; it certainly was owing to the glee songs. But once was enough to make a President in that way. In 1844 the same claptrap was tried, but it was stale, flat, and unprofitable. Mr. Clay was defeated by Polk. The Cincinnati Mail Line steamboat gave out that she would leave our wharf on July 4, 1840, then on the 5th leave Cincinnati at 12 o'clock, and lay over at North Bend four hours to let the pas sengers see Gen. Harrison and his log cabin. Men, women, and children made the trip. - About 400 yards from the landing was the old fashioned two story frame bonne with some old outhouses attached, but all clean and neat. The General was there, as well as Mrs. Har rison, his son Scott and several members of the family. The General felt flattered at so large a concourse of people calling on him at one time. Here was an in firm old man living on borrowed time, nothing but a walking shadow low, meek, and emaciated, bloodshot eyes, and looking careworn and excited. The question of his friends and acquaint ances was : Has he vitality enough to live through this excitable campaign? The General took care to stay at home until the election was over, and see but few visitors, Gen. Harrison was a pnre minded man ; he was the governor and commander of the Northwest. He cer tainly was not a great man, but he had greatness thrust upon him the Presid ency of the United States, almost by one voice. W ten he was nominated lor the Presidency ho was Clerk of Hamilton County Court. The good man had not strength enough to bear his honors, but bore up until after he was inaugurated, and five weeks later he yielded up his spirit and appeared before a higher tribunal. Boycotting a Ship. Star of Russia 1 The frequenters of the water front and lower portion of the city cannot fail to have noticed the name of this British ship, the Star of Russia, written on every conspicuous place. On the board side walks, on the bill-boards, on the brick walls of wholesale houses, on the floors of sailor boarding houses, and in fact in every possiblo nook and cranny the name written in chalk boldly confronts the pedestrian. It is even scratched on the side of the Custom House, and about the British Consulate can be seen in a dozen places. Naturally, casual visitors to the water front inquire what is the significance of these scrawls. They mean that an ele ment in the seafaring classes is at work to boycott the Star of Russia, and when she is ready for sea to delay her as long as possible searching for a crew. It is done in revenge for the brutal treatment of sailors on her outward bound voyage from London. The men who came here in her have long since gono to sea in other vessels, but before signing they warned the sailors on shore to avoid tho Star of Russia. These men, in turn, have told others, and now tho name of the boycotted ship stares one in the face at every turn. The vessel is taking on ballast at present,-" but is not under charter. It is believed that she may seok to leave port in a short time, and then, if the plan of the sailors is carried out, she will have a lively time to get her full complement of men. The story told by the Star of Russia's men is still fresh. They aconsc-d Capt. Logg, the commander, of having abused them frightfully. Tlio matter was never investigated, as Daniel Swannack, Superintendent of the Sailors' Home, cajoled the men into going to sea before the time of the inquiry. San Francisco Pott. A Collapsed Druggist. " I want some consecrated lye, slowly announced as he entered he the store. "You mean concentrated lye," suggest ed the druggist, as he repressed a smile. "Well, may be I do.

On the Street. In a Country Church. How They Amuse Themselves. A Boston Problem, &c, &c The other day I happened to be sit ting in a suburban train just in front of two oldish men who were discussing their plans for the summer. "Where do you go?" said one to the other, a tall, thin, stooping person. "Wal," was the reply, "my wife and I always go up to Vermont in July and August, and stay at Cap'en Hansjom's house." "Pretty hot, isn't it?" "Wal, yes; but it's hot everywhere." "How do you pass the time," was the next question. "Wal," said the other, "my wife is an easy going woman, and she likes to sit around; she gets tired of housekeeping, and likes to watch Mrs. Hanscom do her work." And how do you amuse your self,'" "Wal, I go out and watch the Cap'en work. He grubs around in the fields pretty much all day, and I set and watch him." This is surely the quintessence of cynical enjoyment. Lady Buohan, whose death is record ed at the age of 91 years, was one of the last of the surviving persons who had a distinct recollection of Napoleon the Great Her father, Col. Wilks, was Governor of St. Helena in 1815, at the time of Bonaparte's banishment, and on the term of his Governorship expiring Miss llks was desirous of being lDtro duced to the ex-Emperor. "I have long heard from various quarters of the superior eloquence and beauty of Miss Wilks, but now 1 am convinced irom my own eyes that report has scarcely d?ne her sufficient justice," said Na poleon to her. "You must be very glad to leave the island, he said. "Oh, no, Sire," was the answer, "I am very sorry to go away. "Oh, Mademoiselle, 1 wish I could change places with you." Na poleon presented her with a bracelet in memory of this visit. Is the Franco-German war it was the custom of the French soldiers to go about and pull off the boots of the dead German soldiers. The feet of the Frenchmen are small and the boots of the Germans fitted them so poorly that they experienced much dissatisfaction. At the battlefield of Gravellote one Frenchman is alleged to have stolen in to the German camp. He saw, extend ing out of one of the tents.as plendid pair of boots which he supposed to belong to a dead man. He tried to pull one of them off and was greatly surprised when the imagine I corpse gave a vigorous kick. He fled in dismay and was for tunate enough to reach his own lines. The man whose boots he had tried to purloin was the Crown Prince of Ger many. I see sometimes in the street, says a city newspaper man, a really pretty girl, or one who would be, were not her face spoiled and being spoiled more and more by tne peevisn or ciiscontenteu state of mind she is in a girl who looks as if she had just got off some "hard words" with her mother or sister, or somebody else, and is still going through with it all and giving them all a piece of her mind. But keeping this up does her a great deal of harm. It is bring ing on ugliness. It weakens the stom ach. It poisons the blood. It drives the best people from her. It attracts and brings the worst. It ruins the com plexion. It was one of our Boston schools, and the question was arithmetical, some thing like this: "If 17 men can do a piece of work in one week, how many men would it require to do it in three weeks?" Up went a hand. "Well," said the teacher. "Five men and a boy 14 years old." How do you make that out!" asked the teacher, endeavoring to suppress a smile. "It would take one third as many men. One third of 17 is five and two-thirds." "But where does the boy come in?" "A person is not a man until ne is zi. x wo-imius oi is i. It would take, therefore, 5 men and a U year old boy.". Ox June 14, 1879, Unser Fritz, the late German Emperor, had a narrow es cape from death. He was out riding at Potsdam, when his driver stopped the carriage as it stood across the tracks of the Potsdam and Berlin railway. There was a crush of carriages in front of the Crown Prince's vehicle. Suddenly the guard saw an express train bound for Berlin rushing toward the crossing. A guard saw the train coming and threw up the danger signal. The engine was stopped within fifteen feet of the cross ing and the Prince's life was saved. He made the guard a handsome present in recognition of his services. Francois, a dwarf at the Paris Winter Circus, has fallen head over heels in love with Virama, a pigmy Cingalese who acts in the pantomime at the same place. Unfortunately she is married to Appoo, another dwarf nearly double her age. Nevertheless she wears the ring of Francois upon her big toe, the only ap pendage she has large enough to fill it, and has put so much life into the love passages between herself -and Francois in the pantomime that Appoo is dread fully jealous, and the circus authorities have to keep Francois constantly under guard for fear of a duel. Not long ago the carp were taken out of the famous basin at Fontaine bleau, in France, in order that the basin might be cleaned. A great fete has been arranged to celebrate the return of the fish. Silver rings are to be put into their noses and music and other cere monies enough to frighten the poor fish to death are to accompany the Eutting of the fish back into the asin. It is intimated that enterprising men from Pari3 are already speculating on the chances of fishing in the basin for rings, however, and not for the carp. Two dogs, Pataud, a Newfoundland that saved its mistress from assassin ation by springing at the throat of a burglar, and an ordinary country mon grel that rescued a child from drowning, have just been decorated publicly by the French society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

Mrs. Patti Syle Collins, the reader of blind handwriting in the Dead Letter Departmental Washington, is an expert. She reads all written languages, except Russian and Chinese, and does not read these because, as she fays, very few Russian letters come to this country, and the Chinese are so careful in prepar ing the addresses, usually writing one in English as well as Chinese, that she has found no need. Tim Rev. Myron Reed of Colorado, who ran as tlio Democratic Congress ional candidate in that state two years ago, was once interrupted in the midst of a public prayer by a man who shout ed "Louder!" Reed stopped short, looked at the interrupter, and said cooly: "I wasn't addressing you, sir. I was addressing the Almighty." Then he went on with his prayer. A farmer while driving along a coun try road near Sulphur Springs, Texas, saw nn old pot which hod been washed up by the hard rain of a few days lte fore.

BUFFALO BILL HELD THE LINES. A Drive in Medicine that Shook up Gen Creek Valley , Sheridan. Gen. Sheridan has often visited Omaha, and his face is familiar to many of our citizens, in whose hearts he holds a warm place. Of all his visits to Omaha none is more memorable than that in January, 1872, when he and his staff came here to meet the Grand Duke Alexis of Russia and suite and to go with them on a grand hunt in the west ern pact of the State, which was then thickly "populated" with buffaloes. The buffalo hunt, which was conducte 1 under the direction of Gen. Sheridan, was a very successful affair. The details were executed by Buffalo Bill, who was a great favorite with Sheridan. During the hunt a grand war dance was given by Spotted Tail and his Indians, 1,300 in all, who had been brought down from their agency by Buffalo Bill to entertain the visitors. On the return from the hunt the Grand Duke and Gen. Sheridan took seats in a double-seated open car riage drawn by four splendid cavalry horses, which were not much used to the harness. The driver was Bill Reed, an overland stage driver. On the way in the Grand Duke frequently expressed his admiration of the skilful manner in which Reed handled the reins. Sheridan informed him that Buffalo Bill had also been a stage driver in the Rocky Moun tains, and thereupon His Highness ex pressed a desire to see him drive. Buffalo Bui was in advance and aheriuan sang out to him: "Cody, get in here and show the Duke how you can drive. Mr. Reed will change places with you and ride your horse." "All right, General," responded Cody, and in a few moments he had the reins and the horses were dancing over the prairie. When they were approaching Medicine Creek, Sheridan said : " Shake 'em up a little, Bill, and give us some old-time sta.e driving." Bill gave the horses a crack or two of the whip and they struck an unusually rapid gait. They had a light load to pull and kept increasing their speed at every jump. Bill found it diffi cult to hold them. They fairly flew over the ground. At last they reached a steep hill or divide, which led down into the valley of the Medicine. There was no brake on the wagon, and the horses were not much on the hold back. Bill saw that it would be impossible to stop them. All he could do was to keep them straight in the track and let them go it down the hill for three miles, which dis tance was made, it is claimed, in about six minutes. Every once in a while the wheels would strike a rut and take a bound, and not touch the ground again for fifteen or twenty feet. The Duke and the General were kept rather busy in holding their positions on the seats, but when they saw that Bill was keep ing tne horses straight in the road they seemed to enjoy the dash. Bill was un able to stop the horses until thev ran into the camp where they were to obtain a fresh relay. The Grand Duke said he didn't want any more of that kind of driving, as he preferred to go a little i slower. Gen. Sheridan laughed and said: "That is nothing unusual in this western country. We doeverythingout here with a grand rush." Omtha Herald It Went, All the Same. They were seated as usual. I believe do not need to explain. They had reached that confidential state, when, after months of anxiety and doubts and fears as to whether she loved him or not, having found out that she was only too I wining, ne ien iiKe DacKing out.

Even that did not help him. She said "All right," and laughed, and tlio wed ding goes. San Francisco Chronicle. Just Missed a Fortune. A well-known physician of St. Louis, says a local paper, is one of the many who had an opportunity to strike the Granite Mountain bonanza. One day, just after he had received a check for $1,500 in payment for a debt, he met a friend who asked him if he had any money he wanted to invest. 1 he phy sician replied that he had a check for $1,500 in his pocket which he was just going to deposit in the bank and for which he had no immediate need. His friend told him not to put it in bank. but to go straight to a broker's office I and purchase Granite Mountain stock with it. Stock was then selling for 90 cents a share and the physician's friends assured him he knew the property wns of great value and that in a very short time stock would be away up. But the medical gentleman gave him a know ing wink and said : "Oh, no, you don't catch me on that. I want no mining stock in mine." In vain his friend tried to persuade him to make the invest ment He would not be persuaded. Ho could have purchased with his $1 ,500 just 1.6C6 shares of the stock, which would now bo worth about $100,000 and be bringing in $833 a month. An Average Cook. "How do you like housekeeping, my dear?" inquired Mrs. Matron of Mrs. Newlywed. "Oh, it's just lovely! Charley thinks it's delightful! It's such a pleasant ch ange, he Eays, from boarding-house fare, and he just raves over my cooking. I love to plan and prepare our little meals. Do stay for tea. You really must. It won't inconvenience me in the least. All I'll have to do will be to lay another plate. 1 have everything all ready, and will onlv have to sneak to our girl and tell her there is to bo one extra." And when she spoke to the eirl she said: "Run around to the bakers and get a dozen of fresh rolls, a pound of assorted cake, and some lady fingers. And stop on ma b blu Keii some canned beef; and get some cold boiled ZZ t I berry preserves and some tarts. I guess that'll be all we want but the tea and that you can make. " Bread Making. During a divorce trial in a court in Kingston recently, a young married woman was on the witness stand telling ot some of the acts of the husband, the defendant in the case. "Well, what did the husband say that you considered mean ?" was the inquiry. "He slurred her," answered ihe witness. "In what way ?" "Well, he said he didn't con sider a woman fit to bo married if she didn't know how to bake bread." "Umph 1" came from the counsel. "Don't you think he was about right t" "No, I don't. I don't know how to bake bread, and I consider myself fit to bo married." Counsel In my opinion a woman who don't know how to bake bread and take care of a house is hardly fit to take upon herself the duties of a wife. Witness I control the house and the baker furnishes the bread.

From the Manchester (N. H.) Union. Shortly after 8 o'clock last evening woman took up her station near the south-east corner of the passenger station, one was not far from oU years of age. Her form was bent, her hair was silvered with years and anxiety, and her face was wrinkled and careworn. Her round grey eyes were deep set, and seemeu weary irom constant watching. The woman s complexion must have been of the fairest blond tvne vears ago. as it was still white and well preserved considering her years. She was clad in a dress of dingy, dark brown material Closely wrapped about her shoulders was a rusty plaid shawl, and upon her neaa rested a hat of faded blacK material, of a style, or rather laok of style, unknown to the women of the present day. In her clasped hands she grasped a well-worn leather traveling Dag, ihe sun was almost an hour from setting when she took up her position It had sunk into the west and twilight had long given place to darkness, when she ceased her weary vigil and sadly turned away. And not last night alone was the woman at her post. She has been there night after night, not for weeks and months only, but for long weary years. The frost and blizzard of winter have given place to the sunshine and showers of spring, and the seed time has been succeeded by the harvest: manv times since she first took up her station in almost the self-same spot that she did last night.

A Very Narrow F-scane. They were sitting together on the ver anda in the dim twilight. The robin had sung his la6t song and the fireflies were beginning to light their lamps. The pensive beauty of nn early leap year summer evening was around them, and from the azure canopy the planets and the brightest of the stellar lights were beginning to peep, those silent but eloquent heralds of tho night.

Where Swimming is Easier than Rolling Off a Log, but Diving Difficult. From the Denver Republican. Mormons and Gentiles, men and women, old and young, short and tall, all bobbing up and down like animated corks in the water such is the scene to be witnessed any day at Garfield Beach, the fashionable resort on Great Salt Lake, near Salt Lake City, Utah. The water here is 22 per cent salt. Just what that means may be illustrated by the statement that ordinary sea water contains about 7 per cent, salt, so that the percentage of saline material at Garfield Beach is more than three times as great. The beach is so shelving that a person of ordinary height will have to go about fifty yards from the edge oi the water before getting beyond his depth. But that will make very little difference, for, strange as it may seem, one cannot sink in the water, how ever much he may try. In the deep water one may float on his back in the ordin ary way, and without the leasi possible effort, or he may, by simple steadying himself, retain a perfectly perpendicu lar position, and when thus "standing" in the water his shoulders will protrude above the waves. In the water of Salt Lake the exper ienced swimmer has but little advantage over tho merest tyro, since excessive en deavor does not produce rapid advance ment. The better ways appears to be to take a moderate stroke, care being observ ed to keep tho feet from coming to the surface. W hue in ordinary water a swim mer maintains a position of about forty degrees from the horizontal, in Salt -Lake he very nearly skims the surface. This is caused by the denseness of the water. and, the limbs being in motion, of course the tendency is for them to come to the top. Probably as good a way as any is for the bather to adopt the plan of swim ming hand over hand, in what the boys call "dog fashion. In this way good progress is made with but slight exer tion. Diving is almost a physical im possibility, unless one jnmps from an elevated position. Even then one sinks but a short distance aud pops up again like a life preserver that has been forcib ly submerged. There are spring boards for those who like this kind of amuse ment, and adventurous spirits are able to keep out of sight an unusual length of time by carrying weights in their hands when they take the plunge. The famous Black iiock, upon whose summit the watch-fires of the Indians were seen and dreaded by the early set tlers, is about three-quarters of a milo from the Garfield Beach Hotel, the beach itself extending even beyond it. The rock is now 200 jards from the shore, and the water at its base is nearly twelve feet deep. As late as 1865 one could walk out to this rock dry shod, but about the time indicated, the wa er in the lake began to rise and has continued to mere ase in volume almost ever since. This is one of the mysteries of the lake, since the average rainfall has not been perceptibly greater than before that time. Another marvellous phenom enon is the existence of clear, pure springs on the islands in the midst of this great sea of salt water. Jn Antel ope Island there ie a spring furnishing water enough ' for a good-sized mill stream. This water hurts from near the top of the highest point on the island. several hundred feet above the levt 1 of the lake. So near the top of the island is it that a tunnel of ten feet through the crest of the hill would turn the entire flow from the west to the east side of the island. On Fremont Island there are not many strong springs, bu t a number of artesian wells have been bored and in every case they have furnished water of a line quality and in abundant quantity. A Brief Betrothal. They were in all the blissful trans ports of a couple who had been en gaged three hours and a half. It was verging on to midnight but he mani fested no sign of going, and she trem bled lest he should do so. Suddenly he drew a pencil from his pocket, tore a blank leaf from his note-book, and said : "Now, my own little lovey dovey, let's make a diagram of the little home we will have.

They were sitting at the club tne other evening, telling stories about "mean" men. "The closest man I ever knew," said one, "is to-day one of the wealthiest citizens of Massachu setts. When he was a young man he got a job in a shoe shop, and earned $6 or $7 a week. When Saturday came he got his money the first he had ever earned and that afternoon he invested 82 in a ring, which he showed on the following Monday with a good deal of pride. But his shopmates showed him that what purported to be gold was only tniniy washed brass, and that the al- leged 'stone' was only a piece of glass, The tvholo thing was not worth fifteen cents. He was a good deal crestfallen, hut said nothing. The next morning he turned up minus the ring, but un usually bright aud chipper. 'Perhaps yon boys think I don't understand busi ness,' he said. 'I sold that ring for 3, and made a clean dollar on it.' 'And to whom did you sell it?' they asked. ' To my sister.' " "I can cap that," said another. "I was crossing on the steamer to Liver pool a few years ago, and found myself seated next to a gentleman who has been prominent in Massachusetts politics, and is sometimes spoken of as a statesman. On three or four different days I opened a quart of champagne, and always invited him to join mo in drinking it. an invitation which h'e never declined. Finally, one i'ay he ordered a pint, and, instead of offering me any, said he thonght it a pity that they didn't put it up in smaller bottles, because a pint was more than any man really needed, but that he had to drink it all to save waste, since the corks were so made that they couldn't be put back." "Would you mind telling me that man's name in confidence ?" asked the member w;ho had toia the ring story. "ot at ail, was the answer. Then there was a whispered conference, and the first speaker quickly said: "I thought so. It's the same man." Boston Herald. Rabbits Caught the Diphtheria. Two children of Mr. J. Rogers of Toronto were during the pnet winter stricken with malignant diphtheria. One succumbed to the dread disease, and the other, after the most skilful and careful treatment, recovered. Mr. Rogers had at the time on his premise? a large num ber of English rabbits. When the dis ease broke out in his household they one by one got sick and died, according to the Toronto Globe. The owner never dreamed of the animals being affected by the disease from which his children were suffering, and ho was iu so much trouble that he did not devote much time to in vestigate the cause of their death. But when some of the last rabbits died Mr. Rogers made an examination, and, on opening their mouths, found their throats sore, the tongues thickly furred, and the roofs covered wit'i exactly the same membrane as that in the mouths of the children who had suffered from diphtheria. He mentioned the fact to Dr. Tyrrill, who was attending the children at the time, and the physician, on looking into the case and examining the rabbits, affirmed that they had died of diphtheria. Perfectly Satisfied. It takes a good deal to disturb tho equanimity of a thoroughly well order ed mind, as the following incident illus trates: Old Aunt Sally Pratt, all her life a resident of a certain New England vil lage, was one day sitting by her favor ite window in an upper chamber of her house. The afternoon was warm and Aunt Sally suddenly dropped asleep. The window was open, and, ten minutes later, the old lady fell forward, and to the horror of sevoral persons who saw her, she fell out of the window to the ground below. When picked up she gathered herself together in an amaz ingly short time, glanced up at the win dow and said calmly: "Well, well; I've often set at that winder and wondered how it'd feel to cro a-tumblin' out of it, and now I know. Well, well, well! Queer how things do turn out sometimes." The foot that she had turned herself out of the window gave her no concern. although she narrowly escaped being killed. Texas Railroads. A Northern man who recently returned from Texas tells some amusing stories of railway service in the Lone Star State. One road running out of Houston pos sessed one locomotive and a single train of cars. The train would go to Houston one day, and would go to the other end of the line the next day. The train would run off the track occasionally, and then the passengers would have to board with the nearest planter for a few days while the cars were lifted back on the rails. The conductor considered it a matter of only ordinary politeness to stop the train when a lady desired to gather a few wild flowers along the way. ine day a lady requested him to stop the train all night at a small station, where she had some friends whom she wanted to visit.. The conductor told her that the train would wait long enough to let her go and dine with her friends, but as it was already four hours behind time she would have to take the other passengers to dine with her in : order to keep them from making com plaint to the Superintendent of the rond. ! This proposition was rejected by the lady, who rode on to Houston nursing her wrath. Chicago America. AFTER EXERCISE.

Carter Harrison's Egypt Letter in the Chicago Mail says: I watched a child of about two and a half years enjoying a crust of bread. There were about it a swarm of flies, and I do not exaggerate when I say two or three dozen were on its face at one time in patches as big as half a dollar about the eyes and mouth. It would screw up its eyes when they threatened to go in. I thought some of them must have gone into its mouth with the bread. It did not seem at all annoyed. I saw a sleeping child on the street whose face was almost black with the insects. It smiled as if angels were j whispering in its ears. I have men talkinc nleas&ntlv toeether while a dozen flies would be promenading about their faces, apparently unnoticed by the owners of the faces. I asked a man how he could stand it. "Mashallah I Thej don't bother me," was the reply. This has made the fly bold, and he seoms un able to understand what a foreigner means when he tries to drive him off. He has, too, remarkably prehensile claws, and keeps them keen and sharp when taking constitutional walks over European countenances. It was proba bly the knowledge of this quality which made these people pronounoe it bad luck to drive them off. They found it best to educate the masses to bear the infliction and so get used to it. The Largest Check Ever Drawn. The Philadelphia Press says: Speak ing of large single checks the largest ever given was by John D. Taylor, Treasurer of the Pennsylvania Bailrood. It was drawn to the order of Lee, Livingston & Uo., for $14,20b,iyb, payable at the National Bank of Commerce in New York. It was in payment for the stock of the Philadelphia, Wilmington and Baltimore Railroad held in Boston, and i required three weeks of circulation in order that the transfer of funds repre sented by this single piece of paper could be effected without disturbing the course of business and trade in three of the greatest cities in the country. Dur ing the whole month previous to tho issue of this check Mr. Taylor, at Phila delphia, was gathering in from bankers aud brokers there and throughout Penn sylvania checks on New York bankers for any balance that might be due. Meanwhile Lee, Livingston & Co., in Boston, were collecting whatever drafts they could gather up for money due by New York houses to Boston, and thus this enormous sum was slowly trans ferred from Philadelphia to Boston without causing any stringency in the money market of either city.
