The erolution ot o1ot!i«« (astcnlngs 
was something like this: Thorns, fish 
bones, strings, metal clasns, pins and 
buttons, and the buttons di l not como 
until nlioiit the time Coliimlius dis- 
covered America. But buttons alonu 
wore not ipiito KUfllclenl, and it look 
our 'pood ancestors two ccniiirics 
longer to invent the liiilioii hiije. That 
is to say, liullniis were lir~l used en- 
tirely for oruumcut, and it was not 
until the close of Queen Eliiabeth's 
mign that the great convenience of 
liiilloning one's clothes, instead o( pin- 
ning tlii'iu or fastening them with 
clasits, was diseiivcrcd. 

Tne ornamental purpose of the but- 
ton Is still in vogue In ladies' costumes 
and in men's survives in those two 
helpless Imiions on tlio back of their 
coals. Siiiiie ilreiiming onthiisiast has 
ealciilaleil that if wewould only forego 
llie use of tho.so two buttons the amount 
saved in a few years would pay the 
national dobt. or would found a etiarit- 
able instiliitiiiii that woiihl |irovid» for

ing man may bo known by tho buttons

If he still clings to uearl buttons and 
ilio nri of sewing he is sure to marry 
on tho lirst opportunity.

The first manufacturer o( buttons in 
the United States was Samuel Willis- 
atoii, of tjist Hampton, Mass. His 
father, grandfather and groat grand- 
father had iH'en ininislors In t'onnooU- 
cut and Massaehiisi tls, ami heinlenilod 
to lie one, but while studying for that 
prnfe.sslon his eyes gave out and be 
nearly lost ihiHr use. He gave up the 
miiiislry. Is'i amo a cnunlry storekeeper 
anil niarrieil. Ills wife In help keep 
the wolf from Ihe door commenced to 
cover by hand the wnoilcn buttons of 
the time, which met with quite a ready 
sale in the store. Heboid how large a 
matter a little button nmkcth. Tho 
salability nf the article led to a study 
of the siilijei't ami to llie i mi-lili raliiin 
of machinery as an aid to the liusini ss. 
for your true Yankee will never do liy 
hand what he can get a machine lo do. 
One invention \eA to another, ami lo 
Ihe establlshnieni of a fmlory. con- 
stantly enlarging, in whicli was niadn 
more than half the buttons used in the 
I'nited States. Samuel Willialnn made 
a large fortune in Ihe Imlton hiisiness. 
and lived a long anil ii-eful life, dying 
in IH7t, at Ihe agii of scveiitv-ninc. 
During his life be fnundetl the Willis- 
ton Seminary, at Kaslhamptnn, en- 
dowed two professorships in Amherst 
College, hiiill a church, which was 
twice burned down and reliuill by 
him. giving during his lifo and ho- 
i|iicatiiing at his death lo these and 
other charities, more than one million 
live liiindred thousand dollars. That 
is what liutlons did. Could anything 
belter lie said alioiit them? Observe, 
loo, it was llie wife wbo.se industry 
selected the object which made the 
fortune. If Mr. Williston had remained 
a l)achel/ir and depended on solf-faslen- 
ers or simls, he would never have 
been able lo give a million and a half 
dollars in charily. Tho moral lies on 
the surface.— t'/iK rtjo Ikrald. 



A Qanulne Charaoter. 

A real "Daughter of the Regiment" 
is said to live at SI. Peterslmrg. whose 
fale shows thai Ihe Kiissian sohliers aro 
not all as stony-liearled as llicy are 
sometimes painted. In 1877 a Kussian 
regiment, after a hard struggle, took 
and invaded the Turkish town Hcr- 
iiiaiily. The inbabilaiils hail nmstly 
lied, but one of the Kussian soldiers, 
In searching for booty, came upon a 
beautiful young girl alioiit five years 
old, who looked at Ihe soldier "with 
tears in iier large black eyes. Tho 
soldier pitied the child, took it along 
and shiiweil it to llie iiHicers. who 
soon raised a suhscriptioii of live 
thousand rubles, and sent the child to 
St. I'ctersburg to a school for young 
girls. She is now a charnilllg Oriental 
lieaiily of thirteen, and it is siivniisi il 
thai nut of gratitude she will marry one 
of Iho oiliuers who provided for her, 
RoccDtly, at a special festive occasion, 
she sent a telegram: "I congratulate 
my dear uncles neartl]y,"—y, T. Batt.

SEED CORN. 

Why and Whpii Kvrry CooU lliubuiiilinan 
Slioiilil .Svlei't Ills Own Sreil. 

What a man sows be reaps. The se- 
lection of seed Is, therefore, of ihe high- 
est importance to the farmer who wants 
lo reap the best and tho most as a 
recom| ense for his labor. Labor 
is tlirown away on worthless material. 
A man may ."peiid as much skill and 
pains in carving a medallion out of a 
piece of sandstoiio or soft slate as ho 
iniglil mil of a hard, beautiful onyx or I 
Ihe I'uiT-t iihilm^ler. and at the cud he 
has only tr:isli that is worthless and i 
disagreeable to show for it So a man ! 
may crili Ids corn in a few weeks, and I 
in ilie spring, from a mass of moldy 
aid r. lu-i' i iir~, he niav lui^iily gather 
seed lor tilu next crop, but if he expects 
a good and abundant yield from it be 
will be sorely mistaken. 

I ho enormous losses w hich have fall- 
en ii[Miii laruii-rs Ihe past fcvv years 
Ihi'uugii the use uf infenor iiood have 
wrought damage to the o.xtent of mill- 
ions uf dollars; some farmers lost near- 
ly their wliulu erup last year and tbe 
year before, and tliunsands lost a large 
purtion ul it, and all ibis might ha\o 
Iwcn prevented by the simple precaution 
of selecting guud sound seed in the 
fall. There is another fact which should 
b«! conshlercd, and that is that corn in 
susi^cptib!e of greater iiuprovenient 
tlirough Ihe selection and ii.sc of Iho 
best seed than any other plant grown 
upon farms, and at the same time 
tills plant can be better improved by 
usin^ home grown seed than liiat pro- 
ciireil al ;:re:ii cost Irom a di.sl.ince. 
Ihei't aic uiHuy wise and tbuughltui 
farmers who bavo been saving seed 
from their best plants for many years 
— twenty, forty and .some for liity years 
- and their rc|iiilal.uns lor growing 
good coru and large crops have made 
them the seedsmen of tbvir localities, 
farmers who might have done the 
same for Ihcmsolvus have paid four or 
live jirices fur seed grown by those 
neighuors. I'crliaps this commun ucg- 
iccl is a necessary condition to estab- 
lish Ihe truth of ibe proverb that "the 
hand uf the diligent makethrich," but 
at any rale tiie result jiislilics the say- 
ing. 'I'liis -elf-iiilliclid tax paid lo 
Ihe dilip'iii seed gallierer luiglit be 
spared and the jiubiic wc.illb increased 
by a hundred million dollars if overy 
fanner would early begin tbe work of 
^elel■ting seed corn, ami hercallcr lake 
special pains lo riilinale the crops 
giowu Irom it so as lo improve the gr.mi 
Fn every possible way. And just here we 
would deprecate as strongly as possi- 
ble the to-called uxjierimciits of i-omc 
agricultural experiment stations, ibo 
uuject of whicti has been lo try to 
show that moldy, hiilf-ripeuo.l, shriv- 
eled corn would grow aud produce a 
crop. What is the possible use of such 
an experiment? It may servo I o en- 
courage a thriftless lariiier in ueglecl- 
ing tbe Jilaiiicsi precaution anil iluly. 
aud so injure the interests which should 
be helped and enoouraged by these sta- 
tions, but no reasonable man would 
ever act upon such a snggosiion. Be- 
sides, it is not inic. li is an apparent 
imjiussibUity that a grain of uuru deh- 
ciunt in substance can bear a germ of 
sulUcient vital strength to reproduce 
the original quality of seed. It it were 
otherwise, toen all the claimed rvsults 
uf breeders from tbe excellent care and 
ciiltivaliou of n race uf cattle and tue 
selection uf Iho best dams and sires 
would be falsiiied, aud the poorest half- 
starved scrub might be used as tho 
progonilor of a superior progeny. "As 
» mail sows so shall lie reap." 

I'ben the farmer intent upon improv- 
ing his corn will go into the held as the 
ears aro ripen ng and select those plants 
which most nearly meet his ideal of 
what the best coru should Ixi — plants 
with moderately sized aud well leafed 
stalks which bear two ears, both well 
blled out and sound, and the earliest 
ripe— and from these plants he will 
choose the upper ear fur seed, and mark 
the stalk by lyiu;; a colored strip around 
tile lop of It. I If a  soon as lie liecomes 
expert aud cau select ihcse stalks as he 
goes along in cutting the crop be leaves 
them standing until tbe rest is all down 
and these ears arc ripu aud dry, and 
then procceus to save tlicm in the best 
manner, if there is but one good ear

HORN sTw WKSt. 

A DIhmm of the Blootf Wfelsh Ocmsadi 
Praiopt and Deeldsd Aethia. 

Years ago a notion prevailed among 
stockmen that when Ihe horns of a sick 
animal were cold at the base it was in- 
dicative of some disease of tho horn, the 
nature of which no one professed to 
understand. Horn ail, according to 
Telior, is now understood to be a special 
diseased condition of the blood, in 
which there is either a deficiency in the 
amount of Idood in the body or a dini- 
inution ot some of ils iniportant con- 
stiluents, espceially Ihe red blon.l cor- J 
pu-des. Such condition may follow an 
attack of any acute disease where re- 
covery Is slow and partial, but generally 
■•esult's from poor or iusunicient food, 
expo.sure and ncgleel, foul air, lack of 
oicanllness and other necessary condi- 
tions of health. The food may bo 
abundart In  piantity, but contain an 
excess of water and a defloienoy of 
solid mailer. An exclusive teed of 
roots or of green food growing on damp 
soils, or the persistent use o! a single 
variety of food, sometimes results in 
tills depraved cundition of the blood. 
The symptoms aro those of great debil- 
ity. The animal is thin in llesli and 
hide bound, often lousy, with hair 
sttinding staight out from the body or 
turucd toward tbe liead. The appetite 
is ravenous or irregular; the bowels 
either constipated or too loose, gener- 
ally the latter; tlio fa ces are very fetid 
aiiil accompanied with gas. Tlie pulse 
is feehlo and the animal easily fatigued. 

I he lining membrane of the mouth 
is unusually pale and the horns colder 
than nalural, simietimes .almost as cold 
as those of a dead animal. It is this 
condition wbicli gives the disease its 
name, and the ignorant cow doctor, 
with no knowledge of the anatomy and 
physiology of the animal, imagines tlio 
disca.se confined to the horns, which, 
under his trcatmenl.will cither be hofod 
with a gimlet aud turpentine squirted 
Into tlie orifice, or an active plaster will 
I e applied to the head at their base, 
which, as the leniperalure results from 
3 low condition of the lilood, can have 
no beneficial efl'eet L,ater symptoms 
of the disease are swellings under the 
jaws and about tbe navel, also dropsy 
of tho belly. The cause of the disease 
being understooii. l omnuin sense will 
suggest that the first thing to do in tho 
way of treatment is to see that the ani- 
nfal is well fed, comfortably housed 
and kept perfectly clean. Tho foml 
should be of the best i|iialily. ^iven in 
small quantities and oftenr If lousy 
apply I'ersiau insect powder thorough- 
ly three or four times every other day. 
(live from one pint lo one (|uart of lin- 
.seed oil, varying the ipiantily to cor- 
respond to the size of the animal If 
the animal sutlers constantly from diar- 
rhica, give powdered chalk one ounce 
and bisulphate of soda one ounce, three 
times a day, mixed in feed. It this does 
not pioducc a tavoiahle cITcct. mix oil 
of lurpenliiie one-Iiiird of an ounce 
and lauifliuum one-third of an ounuu 
wil^ three raw eggs, beat all together 
iu a pint of warm water, and give at 
one dose. From two to three doses a 
day should be given, according to the 
severity of the case, until the desired 
effect is produced. After which mt a 
druggist to mix thoroughly-powdered 
sulphate of iron two ounces, {lowdered 
nux vomica one ounce, and powdered 
gentian one ounce. Divide into seven 
powders and i give one every night in 
meal or other feed until all are used, 
then omit one week, Uter which repeat 
tbe powders until seven more are given.

gold, silver, sleel, liron/.e. enamel, 
pearl, amber ami jet arc used willi a 
free hand Ibis aiiliimn both for dres.4 
and millinery purposes. These various 
ornaments, in all manner of odd, quaint 
devices, often represent nothing 
but the vagaries of the design- 
er's imaginatjpn. Antique gold 
belt clasps, with dog-oollar orna- 
ments to match, set with brilliant 
Khine stones, or ornaments for a like 
purpose made of Iridescent enamel, hl- 
laid with half-precious colored gems In 
floral patterns, are added to many 
of tlie elegant costumes of silk and 
satin, and also to handsome tailor- 
made suits of rich hiied tricot or 
Imucle fabric-. With Ihe new fashion 
of looue t'eilora vests, to wear Iwueath 
pretty house jackets, no buttons are 
visilile, and the full-gathered fronts are 
caught at the he\t with ribbons, and 
held with these fancy clasps, one large 
one or two smaller sizes, as preferred. 

Some of the elegant fancy woolen fab- 
rics brought out reieiitly are a- ex- 
pensive at silk or satin goods of line 
quality, and are far more popular for 
street wear than either of these materi- 
als, it wo except, perhaps, the dark du- 
rable surahs. 'J he new vigognes, for 
instance, aro shown with exceedingly 
rich broohe figures, small, but magnifi- 
cently colored, over plain, rich, darkly- 
dyed grounds. The broche designs, al- 
though showing a mingling of Persian 
colors, are always in perfect harmony 
with the prevailing shade of the goods 
they decorate, reminding ono of the 
autuma foliage, |a trlHe subdued from 
its first vivid brilliancy of coloring, 
against the background of a dull, dark 
September sky. These rich figures are 
not woven in clusters, but ilctachcdand 
sprinkled at quite wide intervals over 
the'soft, handsomely finished fabrics. 

This is to be a "elieckcred" season 
in tho matter of woolen fabrics, jiul^'ing 
by the endless lines and grades of 
]ilaided and blocked patterns which 
strew t!ie counters and adorn the shop- 
windows of ••exclusive" importers, 
who are sure to secure the leading 
novelties for their patrons. The new 

Elaids and checks are uncommonly 
andsome, and there Is an absence of 
the over-brilliant coloring wliich fro- 
quently characterizes ilicse designs. 
Cream and niby, olive and doe color, 
dark bine and deep crimson (the fash- 
ionable "Princess of Wales" combina- 
tion), and an artistio shading of a 
single color merely outlined nt the 
edges of each plaid, with hair lines of 
a contrasting hue, are aiuoug the many 
|)atl«rns displayed, liong, full drapings, 
laid in heavy Hal folds at one side, or 
down each side of the front of the dress, 
is tlie jiopular and stylish mode of ar- 
rano;ing the skirts to Ihe^e. Velvet is 
used as a garniture upon checked and 
plaided suits in preference to other 
trimmings, and very frequently Ihe 
dress, wrap in tho shape of  ;laiMone 
jaoket, or long French peli-e, ami tlio 
princess bonnet are made to cori e.aiiiind. 

Tbe new double skirts are likelv lo 
become general as the sea-son passes, 
and the fashion is eminently calculated 
for Ihe heavy woolen materials which 
form so largo a part of cold-weather at- 
tire. The double skirt incretisos the 
warmth of the gown, and does away 
with complicated drapery. Upon some 
models these skirls are cut of nearly 
equal length, aud aro set into rather 
short-waisted but pointed bodices in 
thick gathers or heavv folds. The up- 
per skirt Is faced up for a considerable 
distance, with a contrasting color. It 
is then caught up high ou one side or 
on both sides -a la niilkuia d -as taste 
suggests. Tbe bright facing is in- 
tended to be shown, and this color is 
repealed on the waistcoat and upon tha 
collar and cuff facings. —W. V. FmI.

Therefore, showing the "imp," he

the loveliest of women, and looks as 
if painted from life. There are two 
colored patterns in embroidery ; a

Strange Case of a Wife's Devotion. 

A sensation was caused in police 
circles in Kichmoiid, Va., by the dis- 
covery that one of the prisoners in 
the city jail, who was attired as a 
man, was a woman. The name of the 
prisoucris Henrietta llix. Her hus- 
band deserted her iu Boston a few 
months ago. Learning that he had 
gone to Richmond the witb donned 
male attire and shipped on board of 
a vessel at Boston as a cook about (wo 
weeks ago. Upon reaching Richmond 
Mrs. Hix discovered that her husband 
had been arrested aud committed to 
jail for robbery. Determined Iu ijain 
access to him and share his jnison 
cell, the woman stole a -iiiall amonut 
of money. She wa.- arrested, and 
without arousiiij; tlie suspicions of 
the authorities as to her sex,, she 
was placed in the same cell with Ilix. 
The ru.se was discovered, and the hus- 
band and wife placed in separate 
•ells. Hix confirms the woman's sto- 
ry, and sayslhey were married in 
Boston about two years ago. It is 
probable Mr.s. llix will be pardoned 
by the Governor, ciho Is youug aiitl 
good looking.

'I'lio llisl coin ever issued in this 
country was the old-fashioned cart- 
wheel cent, 'fhe first Issue was In 
1793, and there were three dies made. 
With the siuKle exception of the year 
I8I5 there has been no break in the 
issue of cents from that time to the 
present. The labor required to se- 
cure a sample of the three varieties 
of cents made in 1793 is ve^ great, 
and they bring from $3 to fS each. 
The cent of 1791 is a trifle more com- 
mon and can be iiought for about GU 
cents, while a sample of the issue of 
1795 is worth ■^1.2.'). It was in this 
year that the liberty cap waseliaiiged 
to the fillet head, and these were is- 
8ue l regularly for thirteen years, 
when the Goddess of Liberty ap- 
peared on the fai-e of the coin, with 
thirteen stars surrounding it. A 
cent of the issue of 1799. in good con- 
dition is wortli if 10 or $50.

fHlckmaD Courier.) 
The counties In Kentucky known 
as "The Purchase," are so known be- 
cause they were incluilcd iu the ter- 
ritory purcliased I'loiii the Indians in 
the year 1828. The purchase was 
made by (ien. .lacksoii, acting as 
commissioner lor the United States 
(iovcniiueiii, and the price he paid 
the Indians was .fliO.OOO. The terri- 
tory bought Included the Kentucky 
counties west of the Tennessee river, 
nearly all of the West Tennessee, 
and a large {lortion of North Miuis- 
sippl. It was owned by three tribes 
of Indians, the Cberokeea, Chootaws, 
and Beminolat, and thete tnbet had 
provioutiy exchanged their "reter  
vatiotti" In Alabama for it. Why 
the name of "The Purohtso ' adheres 
to the Kentucky counties, and not to 
the Tennessee and Mississijipi terri- 
tory obtained by .laekson in tlic same 
transaction, we can not explain, un- 
less because local politicians have 
kept it alive in Kentucky. Three 
years bci'dre the war, the Hickman 
Courier ailvocaled the organ i/.al ion 
ofa new Slate out of the portions of 
Kentucky, Tennessee and Mississippi, 
described in the purchase by .laekson, 
and the proposition was generally 
discussed by the press and very gen- 
erally favored by the people of the 
territory to be embraced in the pro- 
posed new State. Alter the war the 
proposition wu revived aiid pro- 
gressed so far that a delegate convoii- 
tion wu aatembled at Jackson. Tcnn., 
which took the initiatory stci s for 
forming the new State, aud resolved 
to call it the State of Jackson. The 
known opposition of the then Con- 
gress of fhe United States to tlic ad- 
missiou of a Denioeratic State, suin- 
marily, absolutely, and perhaps for- 
ever, squelched the movement. If 
anyone knows anything more, or 
different as to ihe histmy of "The 
Purchase,'' let them speak out. 

Beyolutionary. 

The proposed sovereignty conven- 
tion fur chauging the constitution of 
Kentucky is called revolutionary. 
Any plan, to succeed, such are the 
provisions of our organic law on the 
subject, mutt go in a meuure con- 
trary to the constitution. Violence 
to the tanrtiiy of constitutional pru- 
vlalouscau only be forgiven when it 
is done through a |)ower higher than, 
because It is the source of, the consti- 
tution itself — the |)owcr of the people, 
ll lia- been proposed to draft a new 
' ■iii-liiiiiiiiii and Mibinii it to the peo- 
|.lc I'l.r a vole. IT Ihe ailnplioii of 
such a ilrali \v  rc In lie deiiciideiil 
upon the mctliuil, already tried iiii- 
siiceessfully, and reijuired a large ma- 
jority of all the legal voters of the 
State, the result would be a failure as 
bcfruc. If the adoption of the new 
iustrunieut were sought through any 
oiher means, differing ever to slighly 
from the constitutional plan, a revo- 
lutionary plan isinaugurated. If, as 
hat been suggested, the question of 
calling a convention be submitted to 
the vote of the people and decided by 
the majority of the votes cast, the 
constitution is abandoned and revo- 
lutionary means resorted to. The 
alarm at the idea of revolutionary 
measures is ill-grounded. The con- 
stitution cau not be changed but by a 
deiiartui-e from its own provisions. 
A constitution drawn up by a sover- 
eignty coiiTCiition and adopted by 
vote of tlic people would be the work 
of the people themselves, and would 
bo a submission of the whole matter 
to the decision of those who alone 
have absolute power In our land— 
the voters. To be alarmed at the 
Buggesilonof "revolntlonary meu- 
oree" is to be flrightened at a shadow.

Botheration Among the Doctors. 

There is a breeze in the St. Louit 
medical society, over certain breaches 
of the code. Several physicians had 
"specialties" and avertlsed them. 
Thit being eonlrary to medical eti- 
quette, nccessitatetl the itslgnation 
of these people. Mow queer it seems 
that when a good means of enrols 
found, anybody should object to 
making it public. It is uo secret 
that many pnyslcians use Brown's 
Iron Bitters in their regular practice, 
with the happiest effect. Dr. M. E. 
Dougherty, Franklin, Va , says, "I am 
highly pleased with Brown's Iron 
Bitters, and believe it to be superior 
to all other iron preparattou."

GOLD DIQQINOU 

DnixtiK-atMl Man WheIlM«lndKer*R*ni 
Tliiin Good from tb« AeqnUlUon ol 

Tlie mniv tho cloiiii'iit of cliuiico 
enters into tiic acimisilion of inoney, 
thi', i;roiiti'r is the harm il docs Ihi' luau 
who gaius it. This jirol)ably is thn 
roaAon why j^olti-diptjinj^ scli'.om vh'- 
vates, either morally or niitcrinlly, 
those who follow it It demands o( 
the digger enterprise, perseverance, 
toil and indiRerenc* to hard^ship, qual- 
ities the exercise of which should 
make a man of him. Yet the •■lu(;k" 
associated with the bustneu seems fatal 
to manly virtues and permanent pros- 
■ perity. 

The difjp^er may t(»il for weelvs with- 
out "raisin;;' llie eiilcir," am! all the 
time h« sees his neighbor of the next 
"claim" washing out an ounce of gold 
to the pan. The view Is not likely to 
cradieale liis natural envy or eovetcms- 
ne s. On the otlirr lianii. lie mny, liy 
a few (lays of "prospee:in ;," wander- 
ing over the liarivn hills, with a doti- 
key for a eonipanion and a burden- 
bearer, stumble upon a fortune. In 
most eases the "find" tempts the tinder 
to add aii'illier to the thousands of 
illii';(ra(i( n'; nf lli.- fai l lliat that which 
is gained without labor is spent with- 
out thought. 

A gentleman of large experience in 
the Australian frold lields says that a!- 
must the only insiaiiri' lie ever l%iirw 
where an iiuedueated man did not re- 
ceive more harm than good from find- 
ing gold, was the following: 

A man who had been a few months 
in the colony, and had supported him- 
self liy di;: ring in a garden, went up to 
the '•cli!r;;inL's." lie knew nothing of 
niiniiij;. and could hardly tell ipiartz 
from common rocfe. Within two weeks 
ho stumbled upon a nugget of pure 
gold, weighing seventy ounces. Tliat 
very day he started back to the coast, 
as if in a hurry to gel away from the 
mining district. On reaching a sea- 
port, he engaged passage for England 
on the first boat, and went home to 
enjoy the profits of bis brief mlniog ex- 
pedition. 

As un offset to this rare osm, tha 

gentleman mentions several cases in 
which men were ruined by their sud- 
denly acquired wealth. Four sober, 
industrious men worked a claim in 
partner-hip. Tbey strm-k geld, and in 
a few weeks took out ouo hundred 
thousand dollars apiece. But in two 
years three out of the four died drunk- 
ards, and llic fourth lost every penny 
of his fortune by pro-^pccting for gold 
and buying unprofitable claims. 
A blacksmith dabbled in mining, and 

S t into debt One day he struck gold, 
e worked on, and was soon in the re- 
ceipt of twenty-five hundred dollars a 
day. His claim continued to "pan 
out" Ijetter and better, until no one, 
not even himself, knew how much he 
was worth. Tlic man had the ptuCT in 
him out of which a noble character 
might have lieen formed. He taught 
himself to read and write, and for a 
season went onward tittin"; himself to 
become a good citizen and a safe man 
of business. 

But madness was in his blood. lie 
took to wild .-peculation in gold mines, 
set up a racing stud, "bulled" or 
"beared" the wheat market, and went 
into every thing which admitted of 
gambling. The nervous strain tempted 
him to brace liinisdf w ith stimulants. 
He became n  lninkard, and in a few 
years was gazetted as a l)aukrupl. 

The young man who by industry 
and seU-denial saves his fliit one 
thousand dollars— John Jacob Astor 
said it cost him more to gain that sum 
than it did to ai'ipiirc the rest of his 
fortune — is prepared to carry steadily, 
without losing his head, the ten or 
twenty thousand which he may get 
afterward. 

A few years ago a young man of 
Boston was the nianel of his friends. 
His mercantile ventures turned out a 
large prolit. Whatever he touched, 
stocks nr morchauclisc, turned into 
gold. Young men pointed him out as 
tlic envied one, and crafty mothers 
with marriageable daughters viewed 
him as a "catch" to be worked for. 

But old merobants shook their heads. 
Knowing that It requitvs as much self- 
control and wisdom to keep a fortune 
a* to gain one. they looked to see if 
this young Napoleon of the street was 
moved 4iy a mercantile heail or a 
gambler's rashness. Within four years 
from the time that bU name was a 
' synonym for success, he was a bank- 
rupt. Cotnpanion. 



A DIPLOMATIC RUSE. 

How Lamartln* Buaped tha EmbraeM and 

Klupfi ol Fifty Old Wpmrn. 

In the year 1848 Lamartine received 
at the Hotel de Villo in I'aris n deputa- 
tion of so-calli'd ■•Vi'-uviennes"— i. e., 
women of the people, who horo a 
strong resemlilance to the Tricoteuscs, 
or knitting-w nmen of the (ireat Revo- 
lution, and looked as if ilicy mcapt 
mischief. The band peuc-tialed to thu 
room where, Lainartino was at work; 
ho stood up and in |uired what the 
ladies wanted. "Citizen," answered 
their spokeswoman, "the Club of the 
VesuTiennes have decided to send a 
deputation to show how much they ad- 
mire you. There are about liftv of us 
here, and we have ri'ceivi-d onlers to 
— kiss you." The tone and manner in 
which this was spoken showed plainly 
that they would brook no denial. How- 
ever a lucky inspiration came to the re- 
lief of the poet. "Citoyeniics," he said, 
"I thank you very much for the senti- 
ments to which Tou have just given ex- 
pression, but allow me to tell you that 
patriots like you have ceased to be 
women, you are men— men of honor, 
too. Now. men don't kiss each other, 
but content Ihem-elves with a sliake of 
the hand." The Fresident of the Pro 
visional Government by this clevei 
maneuver escaped fifty embraces, to 
bis no little coinfort and Joy.— CMcaoo

THE WINTER PALACE, 

Aa latsnsHac Aecoiwt o( On« a( i h« Cur's 
a«MS-Its BalUUm, 0«rt, Kte. 

TIm Winter FsIsMk although con- 
■ImctAd by Kmpross Elitabeth, was 
not completed until Peter III. ascended 
the throne, and the square in front of 
it was still covered with the shops and 
huts of the workmen. Heaps of sione, 
brick and rubbisli olisiructeil I be ap- 
proaches to the palace. In order to 
clear the place Baron Korfl', who then 
filled the post of Chief of Police at St. 
Petersburg, proposed to the Kmp^ror 
to give permission to the poorer 
inhabitants to carry away these unused 
materials- The plan pleased the Km- 
peror, and orders were immediately 
given to carry it out The Emperor 
witnessed from his windows the opera- 
tion, which was completed by the 
evening. The Kmiieror. on in-tailing 
himself in his new. palace, occupied the 
part looking onto the square and the 
comer of the Millionnaia. This por- 
tion of the palace bore the name of the 
King of Prussia's a|parliucnt,s. The 
occupation of the palace was accom- 
panied by no extraordinary ceremony. 
The room occupied by Peter had been 
decorated by tne architect Tcheva- 
kinsky, a pupil of Rastrelll, and the 
flooring and gilded cornices were 
brought from Italy. Peter's bedroom 
was in the extreme wing, and beside it 
was his library. Above the entrance door 
he caused the gallery to be constructed 
which be turned into his working 
catiinet and fnruislied :it a co^t 
of more than three thousand tire hun- 
dred rubles. The Empreu Cath- 
erine occupied the rooms afterwaivis 
known b; the name of the Kmpress 
Marie Feodorovna. The day the court 
oooupied the Winter Palace (Ttb of 
April, 1762) was marked bv thi- i-on-e- 
cration of the Palace Church under the 
name of the Resurrection. I-alcr (Ui. 
in 1763, on the occasion of an ancli-nl 
image of Christ being removed to tlie 
church, it was consi'crated afresh liy 
order of Catherine II. as that of the 
Savior. The eml)ellishment of the in- 
terior and the furnishing of the palace 
were continued under Peter and only 
completed by ('allierine. The total 
outlay up to the year 1768 w.as esti- 
mated at two million six hundred and 
twenty-two thousand and twenty ru- 
bles, or about four hundred thousand 
pounds. The principal director of the 
works in the interior was the celebrat- 
ed amateur Jean Hi't/ky. in 17( 7 the 
annexe of the palace destined to be the 
Hermitage was commenced, the archi- 
tect Uclamotie being intrusted with its 
execution. This building, nlilong in 
shape, extended from the Millimmaia 
to the Quay. Four years later a sec- 
ond bailding was erected on a plan of 
the architect Feltoa. In 1780 several 
fresh wings were added, and the Km- 
press ordered the architect (luaranghi 
to build a theater, which was at the 
latest to be completed by August, 
1784. The same architect erected the 
arch connecting the Hermitage with 
the theater, and with the part of the 
palace containing the Kapliael galler- 
ies. In 1786 the marble gallery (e.m- 
taining the Hall of St (ieorge and llib 
Throne-room) was commenced, and ie 
1794 a superb throne was placed in the 
former. This throne was the mastvr- 
]iiece of the aroblteot Starow.— Aoi'o«

A GREAT WORK. 

The Feaslbllltjr of Trrlsatlnff the Famoiu 
Nan Joaquin Vullry. 

While the "Great American Desert" 
of tradition has shrunk to small pro- 
portions before the advance of civiliza- 
tion, there are large areas in the west- 
ern half of the United States where the 
diniculty of securing a good water sup- 
ply is still a serious obstacle to settle- 
ment. The San .loaipiin Valley of 
California is tilling up with population 
at a rate that threatens to ni.-ike this a 
serious (|uestiou at no distant day. 
The wet -season brings a plenty of rain, 
but the water does not last the year 
round. It is suggested that this ililli- 
ciiliy can be overcome by constructing 
injinense re-ervoirs, in whicb the water 
c;in be stored for use in the dry .season. 
Nature ofl'ers her assistance in such an 
enterprise. Along the foot-hills and 
nt the mouths of passes and ravines 
are the moraines of ancient glaciers, 
which in prehistoric times shut 
in large lakes. The waters after- 
ward made a channel for their es- 
cape by partially cutting away the ac- 
eiiiuulations of stone and earth in the 
tncirainivs, l)ut in many cases these 
ancient lireak- might be restored by 
modern industry. In this way it would 
be feasible to seonire large reservoirs, 
where the surplus drainage of the wet 
Bca.sons could be kept for use during 
the dry months of the late summer and 
autumn. Precedents for such works 
can be found in ancient history, nota- 
bly in a vast reservoir in Arabia, made 
by a dam two miles long and a hun- 
dred and twenty feet high, which re- 
strained the current of a large stream 
for about two thousand years. The 
California papers think that if the en- 
gineering skill and capital of that early 
period were equal to such an achieve- 
ment, modern science and money ought 
to be able to meet the similar problems 
of this age with eijual success. 1'he 
science of irrigation must evidently 
play an important part in the develop- 
ment of larse regions in our Western 
oountiy.— a; 7. ntt. 

Tha Death of Animals. 

But what makes whales come on 
shore when they feel ill? It looks like 
suicide— and may be. That beasts and 
birds in the same way go aside from 
their comrades to suffer the extreme 
trial of death is a pathetic fact which is 
well known. Sometimes, no doubt, 
their friends desert them. They feel 
that the companionship of an enfeebled 
individual is a possible source of dan- 
ger; or, perhaps, instinct teaches them 
thns to avoid the risk of infection. Or, 
again, it may be that the sight of death 
is intolerabie to them, just as it has 
been and is to many human tribes, 
who leave their dying to pass away in 
solitude, and will not remain to wit- 
ness the last infirmity of man. What- 
ever the explanation, the fact remains 
that in the animal world aa a rule 
creatures go away and die by them- 
selves, and the water-folk commit what 
may be called soioide by leaving their 
own dement for one In which tbey cap

THE 



etripaa, Not Check*, to Be the Ra^e ane 
'Huaa in Red and Gold. 
The new materials for autumn and 
winter wear are already displayed on 
the counters of our largo dry goods 
stores. Inlinite variety, hurnionious 
bicndings of dark, rich, briirhl sluules, 
and a fancy for rough-faced fabrics, 
are tlu' signs which she who runs may 
read. Looking I'loser it is evident that 
the reign of velvet and lace is to en- 
dure, and that combination suit» will, 
if possib1o,be even more fashionable than 
I'vcr. Very few suits will be madi- cii- 
liicly of one fabric. Of all the fancies 
shown each bas its matcbing doth, 
and tailor-made suits are of a -tibdueii 
stripe, plaiil or check, in somljer col- 
ors, with plain cloth matching one or 
other of the checks or stripes. In 
Paris the passion is for stripes plain 
stri| c.-:, fancy siripi-s. I'ekiu stripes, 
narrow stripes and broad stripes in 
every possible combination of color 
and material. The hue of the hour is 
bronze -all the bronzes, indeed -brown, 
copper and green. Tbero is a new 
sapphire, so called, which is really tho 
ola gens d'armes, and this, in combi- 
nation with a brilliant copper tint, 
forms some of the most striking bro- 
cades of the season. Tlit»re is a notice- 
able falling otV in the popiilaritv of gar- 
net. The lu'w reds arc. for tiie most 
part, vivid in tone or dark with russet 
tints, like autumn leaves. Gilt Is passe: 
still, golden tinges are many, especially 
in shot elTects, and bronie d'or, the 
beautiful golden bronie, still holds its 
own. 

The practical economist may con- 
gratulate herself on the fact that there 
will be no difllculty in making o\er 
last year's dresses. All dark, standard 
colors are worn iiulccd. \cry few 
-liades are even w liile llie in- 

linite diversity of color t!oiiibinat;uiis 
in fancy materials makes it easy to 
liuil sometliiug to go with anything 
anil everything. 

The fasbion of woolen i- to be ;:re:iter 
even than it was last year. The sam- 
ple books of returning buyers show 
niindmds of new fancies in these, roost 
of them ebarniing and many of them 
novel. Tlie newest idea is an outcome 
of the pas-ion for lace. By some magic 
of the loom a lace web is superimposed 
on the foundation, the elTect being that 
of lace inserting on figures, laiiT over 
the cloth. The lace may bo cut away 
and lifted friun the fabric ; it is alto 
gelher distinct from the foundation on 
which it rcsLs. Wuolcu lace, it is pro- 
phesied, will have a great run. Wort h 
and Felix are making rffnit'.«ii«(m tnih ts 
of this for their chateau customers. 
They tlie toilets ai'c of the -implcst

THE EGG .DANCE. 

One nf Ihc .tniiisriiit-iili. nf the llliopnl 
 llrU III ¥m\ India. 

A traveler gives us a pretty descrip- 
tion of the graceful egg dance wliieli 
was performed for h s amusement in 
the Court ol Bfaopal, India. It show s 
us that our sword dancers and oui 
young ladies of the ballet arc not (piite 
up to the standard of the Bhopal girl. 
He tells us that a slender girl, arrayed 
in an embroidered l)o Uce and short 
skirts like those worn by tho |ieasant 
women in this part of India, came for- 
w ard. very fascinatingly to hiui. with 
wrealbed smiles and dainty steps, and 
also insteps that were very uoutly 
modeled. "She seemed to me as if she 
wanted mo to buy her basket nf eggs 
along with herself and that the eggs 
were real eggs. she did not dance on 
them, however, .she wnre on her bead 
a large wbi:el nf wickerwork, and 
around Ibis and ciiual distances were 
placed threads with slip knots at the 
ends, in each knot a glass bead to keep 
it from clo-ing. 

"The niiisie Ill-gin-- It is a '|iiiek, 
jerking movement, rather monotonous, 
and the dancer spins around in time 
with the mensute, which grows faster 
and faster. As she turns -lie si i/cs an egg 
from the ba-kcl, wliicli i- held on her 
left arm, and rapidly inserts il in one 
of the knots. Her circular nioliou 
causes the thread to stretch out like 
the spoke of a wheel. She keeps on 
doing this till every knot has its egg 
and her head is surrounded by a sort 
of aureole. When she has suei-cciied 
in placing all the eggs she spins around 
BO fast that her features can hardly bo 
seen. A false step and Humpty Dump- 
ty would have a fall indeed. She has 
now the most dainty and ilillieult part 
of her dance to execute, for (he dance 
is not done till every ege is taken from 
its thread and laid safely back In the 
empty basket. One by one the Indian 
girl accomplishes this, never onishing 
a shell or displacing a single egg. 
When all are restoreil she -tops her 
dizzy whirl, courtesies witli grace, and 
ofl'ers her basket to the lookers on, who 
often break the eggs to prove that no 
juggler's triok has been used to change 
them."-A: Y. BenOd,
