Poor Men Instantly Killed and 
Probably fatally Injured. 
WHEki-iNn, W. Vs., August in.— A spe- 
cial from Charleston reports a fearful acci- 
dent that occurred near that city this 
sfternoon, resulting in the inatant death of 
four meu and the aevivoaud prolialily futal 
Injury of threw other a. The accident took

A long train of loaded car. had

railroad. In some mntiner not now known 
the rear half of tho train broke lo a e at the, 
top of the long Incline, and unc-ntr-ollod,

point. ..I i consider tbe subject of trana 
porting corpses was road : 

Your committee, appreciating tbe Import- 
ance of tills auhject, have investigated it 
very thoroughly. An extenalre oorro- 
■pondenc.i hua been hod with State 
rVinnla of Health regarding their ruloa, 
and It baa been found thnt there Is the 
great.-at diversity in the relatlona in force 
on thla subject, and in many eases there 
are no State laws, but only local ordi- 
nances In force In the particular locality 
from which tbo body may bo forwarded. 
In aome cases the restrictions aro simple, 
n others more rigid, and this appll.a both 
to coses In which death waa caused by or- 
dinary diseases, and those In which It wss 
cansod by diseases of a contagious or In- 
fectious character. Under this want of 
uniformity the transportation of dead 
bodies must necessarily lie accompanied by 
great danger and annoyance. Even rigid 
reatrlctions are at best only partially et- 
fscted, as it is well known thnt coftlns ran 
not bo made absolutely air tight Your 
committee, however, have discovered a 
simple appliance by which this purpose 
can lie secured as effectively as 
the preservation of an article in a 
t Ightly corked bottlo. Thia device consists 
of an anti-plic sack, madeof rubber, pro- 
vi.lc! wilk^ ,nii extension at one aid" mid

river twelve miles below Frankfort. An 
Old man by the name ol lloacb wont to the

two dead almost iiudanlly. and, it Is said 
fatally wounded o third. The other mado 
his escape The little community of Stony 
i re. k i« greatly stirred up over the matter, 
1-ilh lloacb and his son being considered 
perfectly blameless in the matter. No ar- 
reetl have yet iNN-tiuiado. The elder Hoach 
is still suffering from bla I ruiaea, which 
ivere very severe. He is a well-known 
fanner mid a man of family. His standing

tn to •** whether or not the 
Inside was charred. The gas ignited, and 
one bend nf the Imrrel was blown out with 
the report of a boiler explosion, while a 
mass of flames envclr.ped both men. A 
piece of the barret struck Clemeu*, break- 
ing tbo bones of bis (opt and cutting two 
deep gushes in his leg. Wonderly had his

Life is comparatively easy in 
Washington just now. The heat 
of last week has subsided from 
fifteen to twenty degrees. Men 
nave resumed then collars, n^- 
tiesand coats. Women have re- 
sumed—but I can not go into par- 
ticulars. The President has taken 
to the woods. The Cabinet is divi- 
ded Geographically only.' The 
Postmaster General is in lladison, 
Wisconsin. The Secretary of War 
is in galena, Mass. The Secretary 
of Stat'  o.-ci Hates between his heme 
in Delewarc and the Department 
in Washington. The other Secre- 
taries, I believe, are at their posts, 
but I have jtut retuined to Wash- 
ington after a two weeks absence, 
oudlmust make the confession, 
unparnlled in journalism, that^here 
are one or two things that I do not 
know. 

The work in all the Departments 
has not been for years so well sys 
temized £nd pushe t 4 as at present 
This is the comment of all who 
have long had businoss with Pen 
sion, Patent, j. ami, Indian and 
other bureaus of the Government 
service, Methods have been iro 
proved, abuses eradicated, barna 
cles have be,en scraped o^f; compc 
tent men have been appointed in 
place of drones and shirks ; new 
life, now energy, and old-fashioned 
honesty have been infused into the 
complicated and labyrinthine sys- 
tem through which the affairs of 
55,000,000 of people are administer 
ed. That so much h,. ; been ac-

per in which in 
1861 bid not report the transfer of 
the Treasury and the books were in 
the hands pf the Republicans it was 
mpossible to obtain tho figures. 

All that could de done was to call 
attention to the fact Gen. John 
A. Dix was the democratic 
aecretary of the Treausry aud 
and to this the Republican cross- 
road orator replied that it was the 
Rebel Gen. Di$, not the Union 
General by that name- 

The boqks pf the Treasury are 
are now open to the public and from 
them it appears that when Mr. 
Lincoln; went into office a Commit- 
tee was appointed by his Secretary 
of the Tremmy to coqnt thp cash 
transfered to the Republican 
Treasurer by hU Democratic pred- 
ecessor, and this Committee report- 
ed that they found in the 
Treasury at Washington ; 
In American goldeqin. $5761651. 50. 

Is American' silver coin 0-°7$-5° 

In three.ee nt pieces 12.00 

In one-oent piece* , 166,60 

in treasury drafts 9-9*7-63 




Total *396,03J.43 

The Committee also reported and 
the books of the Treasury, show 
that the general balance subject to 
draft in the sub-treasuries and mints 
March 4th, 1861, was 16,123,459. 
42, of which $4,912, 074.13 was in 
New York, *500, 009 in Ban Fran- 
cisco, $179, 728.44 Philadelphia $17- 
7,939.27 in Boston, and tho 1353 
717.5C  remainder was divided in 
small sums among thirty-two sub 
trea?uries, depositories and mints 
for the covenience of paymasters 
and disbursing aofficers.Every pen- 
ny was trasferrcd to the Republican 
Administration and spent by it 

Republican School Board* have 
been engaged for twenty years in 
teaching this falsehood to school 
children, and although it may be 
impossible to prevent them from 
continuing to do so, Democrtic 
parents at last pave the facts with 



tier 

Tflstratien. Besides 
this, 814 of the clerks are absent on 
their annual leaves, and there are 
thirty abseht sick. Notwithstand- 
ing thts decrese in the working 
forse, amounting altogether to 354 
clerks, the amount of work being 
done at the present tJme, without 
any lengthened hours or over-work 
ing of the force, is as large as was 
done by the full staff of dork's un- 
der Commissioner Dudley, and it 
is rapidly augmenting- Recently 
there nave been one or two clerks, 
both Deajoorats and Republicans, 
dismissed because they roliod too 
muoh on their influence and not 
euough on. their record, but be 
yond thil there have been but 
few changes recently. 

The loud and braggart glorifici 
lion of the Republican party, when 
the count of money in the Treasu 
ry department showed no loss, has 
not yet ceased to reverberate in the 
land, but that is not the way the 
truly good officials of the truly 
good party have replenished their 
exchequers. Investigations now 
pending, and others that the oount- 
ry will hear of Boon, will convince 
the most skeptical that an exami- 
nation of the books, aud an elimi- 
nation of the orooks, have come 
none too soon. The Republicans 
are trying to take political comfort 
from the faot. as they put it, that 
the implioated official who lately 
dismissed from the Coaet Survey 
Office are all Domocrats. This is 
not true ; but even-if it were so, it is 
not easy to see how the oause of 
Republicanism is helped any by the 
discovery. The fact romains that 
what ever iregularitiss existed were 
continued under republican rule' 
and that it remained for a Demoort- 
ic Administration to expose them 
and apply the necessary corrective 
The country is not so much con- 
cerned just now about the Dolitics 
of individual rascals, as it is in 
having rasclities stopped. It is upon 
the latter point that the record will 
be made up.

CHAPTER XIV - CowTiHtran. 
When ho reached the hill upon tho 
opposite side he sprung from his seat 
without more than chocking tho speed 
of his horse nud ran by hi* «ido up tho 
incline, keeping the animal in a trot, 
but reaching tho top with his steed 
much less exhausted titan if ho had 
borne tho weight of his rider. Then 
mounting again he dashed on across the 
next valley, a race of a mile and a half, 
with the speed of the wind, again 
springing to tho ground as tho steeper 
portion of tho next hill was reached, for 
he-knew that an animal tinnsnd to lone 
heats at his best paces will make better 
time if relieved of the rider's weight for 
a few moments occasionally in making 
^satoep ascents. 

^%A*1 so he reached tho little town at 
the Landing with his animal covered 
with foam, but still ablo to keep a sharp 
run. 

Tho appearance of horse and rider as 
they passed through the one main street 
which the town could boast of drew 
evorybody to their doors, and whon they 
■aw him spring to tho ground in front 
of the doctor s office, a dozon persona 
. gathered about to learn the cauBe of his 
hasty ride. 

As they heard him toll tho, doctor of 
the accident to Johnny, and l og that ht 
would hasten with ail possible s| ood, 
and that ho would loan him a fresh 
horse so he might return with him 
making certain that he did not miss the 
way, there were expressions of sympa- 
thy and offers of the loan of horses for 
both, if tho doctor's were not fresh. 
They also offered to carry tho sad news 
to Mrs. Parsons that she might hasten 
to tho side of her injured child. 

"Ef yriu would, mon, you'd be doin' 
me a mighty groat favor," he said, in 
reply to their kindly odors. "Tell her 
nnd 'Kastus to hitoh the ponies to tho 
spring wagon and come at onco. Tell 
'em to follow the Gravel Hill road till 
thoy come to the limestone bluffs— ' Ras- 
tus '11 know where I mean— and thon 
turn to, the left, an' it the first shanty 
they come to." 
. Then mounting the animal which had 
been led out to him, he dashed away 
the doctor keeping by his Bide, his case 
of instruments in his saddle-bags hang- 
ing upon his saddle. 

When the party who had volunteered 
to notify Mrs. Parsons of the accident 
reachod the cottage it was already get- 
ting dark, and a lamp was burning in 
the dining-room, whose supper was 
spread and the family waited the coming 
of the absent ones, now momentarily ex- 
pected. 

Hearing tho clatter of a horse's foot 
on the hard road, Mrs. Parsons went to 
the door just as the ridor sprang from 
his saddle, and throwing the bridle 
rein over the hitching post, advanced 
up the gravel walk. 

In a few words he told his errand. 

"An accident had happened; the 
horses, taking fright, had thrown John- 
ny and his father out of tho buggy. Mr. 
Parsons had escaped unhurt, but John- 
ny's arm was broken and ho was lying 
in a shanty near where the accident oc- 
curred, and to which Mr. Parsons had 
rotnrned with the doctor, while the 
siteaker came to tell Mrs. Parsons, that 
she might go to her child at once." 

Martha Parsons neither screamed nor 
fainted. She called Krastus and bade 
him bring the ponies and spring wagon 
while she hurried to get together linen 
for I m n. I ages, and such other articlos as 
might be most needed. 

When Krastus drove up to the gate 
she called to him to come in and gel a 
couple of feather beds and some cover- 
ing and put them in the wagon, (or she 
knew that gittlers in the mountains 
were not alwtivs supplied with a super- 
*M»e4K f' bedding. And, besides, 
not too badly hurt— and 
"•iiurht the news of the 
■^Utt hnyrcBSion 

• ? ' * *' 



that a broken arm was the extent of the 
injury he ■•on Id be laid on she lied and 
brought home in the spring wagon at 
once. 

Driving at night over a hilly road is 
not the nio-l rapid way of transit, but 
the ponies were urged forward with as 
much speed as possible, considering the 
darknoss, aud just at midnight were 
halted at the door of Mr. Joner shanty. 

Tho inmates had hsard them coming 
and Mr. Parsons was standing at tho 
gate waiting for them. 

"I'm mortal glad you're come, 
mother," he said, as be lifted his wife 
from the wagon. "Johnny's pretty 
bad hurt the doctor says, but he's set 
his arm and tho lad's sleopin' a little 
now. 

"The folks here arc es kind os kin be, 
and everything has been done tbat kitt 
If done to make him comfortable, but 
the doctor says he can't bo movod for 
several days, an' may lie weeks, and 1 
reckon 'Kastus had better go back an' 
write to one of the girl* to come home 
at once, for. I know you won't leave 
Johnny, an' there ought to be some one 
to home to see to things." 

Mrs. Parsons was unwilling to have 
tho girls leave school in the middle of 
tho term if it could I e avoided, and she 
suggested that they wait a few days. 

It might lie that Johnny could lie 
moved soonor than tho doctor thought. 
At any rate they had better wait a little 
and see; ospocially as Krastus ex- 
pressed a willingness to got on as woll 
as he could without a cook and house- 
keeper for a time, if thought best 

And so he returned homo, leaving 
lioth Mr. and Mrs. Pnn,ons at the 
shanty with the injured boy. 

The noxt morning Mr. Parsons went 
to the Landing, ridiug the horse which 
ho had left at the shantv tho day boloro 
when he went for the Jot-tor, aud lead- 
ing the borrowed one, which he re- 
turned to its ownor. Then taking his 
own, he rodo to his own homo. Here he 
remained but a few hours and was 
again on his way to the shanty among 
the hills to resume his watch by tho 
bedside of his child. 

The doctor came again the noxt day, 
and every day for nianj days ami 
weeks; for Johnny was not moved from 
tho shanty, whose inmates had shown so 
much hospitality, for three long months; 
aud whon at last he was taken home 
his parents knew that he would never 
again be the healthy, rollirksome boy 
he had been, going everywhere about 
the house anil ranch, antl carrying sun- 
shine wherever he went, but that lie 
was to bo a cripple always; ihe injury 



to his back making it impossible that 
he should ever stand erect or be able to 
walk again. 

When it became evident that weeks, 
ami may be months, would elapse tic- 
fore Johnny could be moved from the 
Jones shanty, tho girls had been writ- 
ten to as their father at first suggested, 
ami had come immediately homo anil 
u-vsurm'tl the care of household affairs. 

Occasionally one of thorn took Mrs. 
Parsons' place at the licdsido of the 
sufferer, while tho mother returned to 
the cottage to see that everything was 
going right, or for a rest of a night or 
two. 

John Parsons had also remained at 
tho Jones shanty tho greater portion of 
the time; for Johoaiy was fretful in his 
sufferings, and no one could lift or turn 
him so woll as his father, whom t]uito 
as much as his mother bo wanted con- 
stantly near him. And so ho had re- 
mained, trusting everything ou the 
ranch to Krastus, anil going home only 
whon it was necessary to obtain pro- 
visions, or a change of clothing for him- 
self or wifo, or something for Johnny. 

No ono could possibly have shown 
more kindness and sympathy than did 
Mr. and Mrs. Jones, who wen- thus 
called upon to act the part of good Sa- 
maritans to those whom they had never 
before seen. They even consented that 
their own children should leave thorn 
for a time— when the fever hail set In, 
anil Johnny was at the worst, that their 
noise might not disturb him, and they 
had been taken to I liol'arsons' cottage, 
where they remained some weeks and 
were oared for by Krastus and the girls. 

Whon tho crippled boy was at last 
removed to his own home, these kind 
ticoplc beneath whoso roof ho had been 
so long, would not consent to make 
any charge for their trouble or to ac- 
cept any pay, except such as was forced 
upon them in tho way of presents to 
Mrs. Jones and the children. 



CHAPTER XV. 

BttlLtllNO Till PAM. 

The events recorded in our last chap 
tor served, for a time, to arouse John 
Parsons from the unhealthy mental 
condition into which he was sinking; 
for so long as the lad's life was in dan- 
ger every other thought gave way bo- 
Fore tho one great fear of losing John- 
ny, his baby, his only boy. But when 
the more imminent danger was past, 
tho fear of losing their home came again 
with redoubled force as ho realized that 
his child must always remain a cripple, 
dependent upon others for every neces- 
sity and enjoyment in lifo. 

It was at "thought of this, too, that 
Mrs. Parsons broko down. 

Always heretofore she had been tho 
ono to preserve a cheerful countenance 
and to encourage her husoantl with ex 
pressions of hope that the danger to 
their home might not he so great as he 
feared, or if so there would come some 
way out of it 

"Tho law will compel tho company to 
make good the damages if they occur," 
she would tell him; "and even if wo 
loso the land we will still have the stock 
and household goods and a nice little 
sum of money in tho bank, and we are 
not very old yet antl will manage to 
live comfortable, I am sure; so don't 
worry, dear, it will all come out right 
in the end." 

Hut now! 

Whon she got down from tho spring 
wagon, and Johnny was lifted out and 
carried in and laitl upon the cot, from 
which, unaided, she knew he was never 
to rise again, an awful feeling of deso- 
lation came over nor. Site was as ono 
bewildered and lost in tho woods The 
sky, the hills, everything about her, 
took on the look they havo when seen 
through a piece of smokod or stained 
glass. The house Itself, nay. tho very 
faces of her husband and children, 
seemed strange and unnatural, and she 
moved from room to room as if in a 
dream, and when she spoke she heard 
her own voice as if it came from afar 
off, and was tho voice of another. 

All day she was in this condition; but 
the second day ahs aroused horsoU by 



an effort of the will and resumed her 
usual round of duties, except that much 
of her time was of necessity given to 
the crippled boy, who lay in a litilo cot 
which had been made for him and 
placed on wheels that ho might ) c 
moved about the house easily and out 
into the yard on pleasant days. 

Her husband now spent most of his 
time in the house. The winter rains, 
which hail set in some weeks previously, 
rendered ont-door work impossible for 
days at a time, and if they had outdone 
so John Parsons had lost all lovo for 
work on the ranch. Resides, Johnny 
claimed his almost undivided attention 
now. 

The little fellow had taken to his 
father from liefore the timo whon ho 
took his first baby steps, and had never 
been quite so well contented as when 
in his arms, or perched upon his 
shoulders, or following him alioul the 
nlaco; and now he could not boar to 
have him out of his sight during his 
waking moments. 

Often, too. in tho night ho Would 
waken and call in a weak, piping voice, 
so different from What it had ttvi'ii iu 
health; and his father would arise and 
sit by his sido for hours moving liispoor 
waated body this way or thai to gUe 
him a little more ease, or divert his 
mind bv tales such as children love to 
hear, n'ntil ho fell asleep again or forgot 
his pain. 

During the day he wheeled him about 
the house; or, if it was sunny, carried 
him out in his arms to the poultry yanl. 
that ho might drop corn to his chickens 
and ducks; or to the pasture lot, lhat he 
might put out his hand and pet tlio coll 
that hail been promised should lie his 
whon both were grown, upon which 
promise ho hail built a thousand omUm 
in tho nir, of encounters with grizaly 
bears and Indians, besides taking pre- 
miums for speed at all tho fair., in the 
country. 

It seemed that tho man had but one 
thought, ono object in life now - that of 
caring for the crippled boy. 

Certain it is that he never laughed, 
except when oneo in a great while 
something prjvoked the child to laugh- 
ter; then the man always joined in. but 
at DO other time did any member of the 
family see a smile upon his face, and 
he never went from homo any more, 
not even to a neighbor'a 

Ono day word came lhat there was to 
be a meeting at the lohdol-hoaM to de- 
vise means to save tin) settlers from the 
overflow of the mines, and that his 
neighbors were anxious for him to la) 
pn -out, fur by this time the danger wm 

apparent to all. The Hoods caii«ed by 
the rains hail overflowed the valley to a 
much greater extent than usual, al- 
though the amount of water which had 
fallen was no more than common at 
this season of the year. 

The washings from tho minoi bad 
tilled the creek U'.l...ui.l at places had 
formed dams that chicked the water 
»nd caused it to overflow fields never 
lioforo submerged, and to set back ii|M n 
little valleys which Ottened into the 
larger one" through which tho creek 
passed. Much damage to vineyards on 
the lower lands had already been done 
or must speedily occur. If the water was 
not drawn- off. 

The water was thick Vrith tho jfedi e* *W"^sW 
tho hills washed down by the mirrmg mediately 
companies, find in places where the 
dams ha l formed, and for long dis- 
tances on either side, sand and gravel, 
brought down bribe swift, strong cur 
root was being deposited ii| ou the tilla- 
ble lands in large quantities. 

Eridontly something must ! «• done, 
and the messenger who brought notice 
of the meeting urginl strongly that Mr. 
Parsons lie presold and advi.-« regard- 
ing tho action to be takon. 

"'Tain't no use," he said to his wife 
whon tho neighbor was gone. " 'Tain t 
no use, but HI go of you want I should 
You'd better send Kastus, though, and 
let me stay homo with Johnnv." 

The man's spirit wa* sadly broken 
Ho felt that it was useless to contend 
with the company: thai everything was 
virtually lost already, aud had dropped 

into the habit of leaving everything to 
his wifo and Krastus, doing without 
questioning whatever fhey suggested, 
but anpeanng unwilling even to advise 
with them; as if he felt himself un- 
worthy, having failed so utterly, to give 
advice upon which depended tho wel- 
fare of others. 

"I think you had bettor go yourself, 
father," replied Mrs. Parsons to the 
suggestion of her husband that Krastus 
should attend the mooting in his sh ad 
"You aro the head of the family, nnd 
you will havo more inlluenco than a 
youngor man. Krastus can go, too, if 
you nod ho wish. I think everybody 
ought to go and see if some moans can 
not be devised to prevent our homes 
from being destroyed." 

Tho mooting of tho settlers was held 
tho following afternoon, and John Par- 
sons wont So tlid EraatuS. So did 
overybody elso in the neighborhood. 

Somebody nominated Mr. Parsons for 
chairmnn, but he declined, nnd Mr. 
Ritchie was elected to preside, and 
Krastus Hemmingway was made secre- 
tary. Then tho meeting was declared 
opened anil expression of opinion as 
to the course to be pursued asked for. 

Tho result was a variety of sugges- 
tions and motions. Some favored ap- 
plying to the courts for an injunction to 
stop llie operations at tho mines, but 
others pointed out that such efforts had 
been made in similar cases in other 
parts of the country and had failed, or 
been delayed until too late to save the 
proporty of those applying. 

Others proposed petitioning tho Leg- 
islature for tho passage of a- bill for- 
bidding hydraulic mining; but as such 
a law could not be obtained for a year, 
if at all, this projiosition was not favor- 
ably receiver., and finally the meeting 
adjourned without having decided upon 
anything, but with tho understanding 
that they were to meet again tho noxt 
afternoon and oojisider the matter still 
further. 

When they reassembled, tho next day 
tho whole question was again gone 
over, and yet nothing could bo agreed 
upon. 

To bring snit in court for datnnpis 
would bo to become involved in endless 
litigation; since they would be contend- 
ing against those whose resource* woro 
virtually limitless, nnd whoso wealth 
woultl enable tbem to protract the suits 
indefinitely; so that if in tho end the 
settlers should be successful in obtain 



If they sued at aTL.they must make 
every oorapanv. the debris from whose 
mines emptied into the gulch abovi 
them, parties to the complaint, and 
would thus Iind arrayed against them 
mon worth millions of dollars, organized 
in the form of a corporation, proverbially 
soulless, and certaiuly without m  r. y. 
or sense of justice, or honor, to tin ) cut 
them from taking advantage of every 
qtiibblo of the law. made, too. in many 
instances, to delny justice, and admin- 
istered by officers who owed their eloo- 
tion to "the men who controlled the 
corporate capital of the state. 

Threats of personal violence were not 
lacking. 

There were those who recalled the 
fact that more than once In the history 
of tho State, thieves, blacklegs ami bal- 
lot-box stuffers, even those who as- 
sumed to have lioou elected to high 
offices, had been hung upon hastily- 
ereeted gallows by men whose only 
authority for doing so was their natural 
right to "protect themselves and families 
from being robbed and Insulted bv or- 
ganized bands of plunderers. A large 
majority, however, favored only legal 
means "for the protection of their 
homes, and it was linttlly agreed to 
build a dam across ihe gorge through 
which tho debris from the mines 
flowed, at a (Miiut aliove tho agr. cult- 
ural sottlemenl. anil by cutting 
through the hill, turn the mass of tllok- 
ings into another gnrge. which would 
cause them to enter the river at a 
laiint below, and where no damage 
would Is- done to occupied lauds. 

1 luring the discussions al loose meet- 
ing! John Parsons had said little, and 
that little only when appealed to for 
his opinion, but when the building of 
Ihe dam and the cutting of a new way 
for the oversowing debris had been 
decided upon, he called Kroslus aside, 
and after conferring with him a mo- 
ment, returned and suh-eribod live 
hundred dollars toward the work to 
be done. 

The annouii'vment of bit subscription

I h » 1 \ of men there assembled 

••II ain't all my own subscription, 
men," ho said, when the cheering had 
ceased. "1 don't know if any of it 
rightfully is mine. It's pari of the 
money we was a savin' up Per to buy a 
ranch fer Krastus with, and it honestly 
belongs to him- He's earned every 
cent of it and more, loo; but you sen 
if the work goe. on an' our bMM is

Others now came forward and stili- 
sorilied. a few putting down live hun- 
dred each, and many others, small.' 
sums; the understanding being that 
such as could not pay money should b 
allowed to work out their subscriptions

— In Alaska in midsummer, accord- 
ing to a late letter, tho almost continu- 
ous light of dav shines upon bright 
green slopes, shaded here aud there 
with dark timber belts, rising up from 
the doep, blue waters. An endless va- 
riety of bright-hued flowers, the hum 
of insects and melodious song of birds, 
together with a degree of heat dispensed 
by tho solar orb which to our 
thickened blood appears oppressive, 
would cause a strangor suddenly trans- 
lated then' to think himself in any 
country but Alaska. -Chicago Herald.

taken an odd form. When Mile. Zeile.

around lha world some years ago. she

he agreed to sing an air from • Norma" 
and a few min i songs, and was to get a 
third of the receipts. When counted, 
the prima donna's share was found to 
consist of three pigs, twent.N -three lur-

BATHING. 

A Ins. ..s.|. ... of Ihe  J.ie*tlon From a ll   
gtenlr slan in -in. 

The skin contains millions of perspir 
atory tubes, through which pass every 
hour a ;wiuml or more of greasy refuse 
effett material and .two. |Miunds or 
more of sensible perspiration. These 
waste materials imisl Is' w ashed away. 
Those excretions must lie removed, or 
if |HTiiiitic.i to remain, they will choke 

tho outlets of inch wasle and comp -l 
It to seek some other way of leaving 
tho svstem. The lungs and kidneys 
w ill Is- compelled to do double doty. 
The proper way of relieving lbs surface 
of wide material Is wa.shing.or h.it time 
of the skin, that not only purifies and 
refreshes, bat confers health and rigor, 

, s| uilly in warm seasons of the v. ar 

i L ansing daily the surface of the Isody 
is a necessity to life and comfort 
What must tho tom|NTaturc of the 
wator lie to yield the greatest amount 
of goodf   old water only partially 
cleanses. It d(s?s not open the mouths 
of tho countless pores, but rather closes 
them; while warm water opens tho 
pores and tends to take away the im- 
purities of the skin. Kvidently warm 
water and soap should he freely used 
to remove the Impurities of tho surface, 
and cold wator should follow to give 
tone and vigor to the system, nnd 
protect it ngainst. the usual 
changes of temperature. The latter 
should Imj quickly applied that the de- 
lightful glow of warmth should at once 

not L If the glow does not come, 

avoid the refreshing cold and use only 
the cdoansing warm- Some unwise 
mothers force their children into cold to 
harden them, but really to induce dis- 
ease or check their proper growth. T ' 
plunge feeble children into cold water 
is cruol. Kven in the warm temperature 
of the Biimmer months the chill of 
the bathing wnter of delicate children, 
should be diminished, especially if thoir 
delicacy is so great that their surface is 
easily congested. 

Very hot, water for bathing purposes 
Is equally injurious. The proper way 
for all infants and children is to begin 
with warm water and gradually from 
day to day reducn tho temperature. 
And in changing tho food tho same 
process should Im pursued. Sudden 
changes of food or temporuturo are al- 
ways jnjtiriotis. Mathing or sponging 
with cold water is salutary, if wisely 
used. It lends the skin a rosy hue and 
conduces largely to health and comfort 
In hot soasOtis, if taken on retiring from 
tho plays and duties of tho day. it In- 
sures a night of sweet repose and on 
rising to greet tho early morn it aug- 
ments tho strength and freshness for 
tho coming day.— C. U. Alien, H. D., 
in Western Burnt.
