These groups include the varieties of  canned vegetables, fruit  butters,   jellies,  -'���������preserves and   catsups.      The   forms  of  adulterations,   common   to all of   these,  .. nr consist in the.use.of   coloring matter, of  ' Imperfect'vegetables   or   fruits, of  other  ':*"'.fruits and vegetables   than   those   called  for,, or  preservatives.    In   the   case   of  canned vegetables there is an   accidental  1 adulteration from the ingredients   of the  "v^can, suoh'as  lead   and   tin,   and which  --*;- -may,-as a-rule, be attributed to a lack of  care in , canning.      In   all of the groups  mentioned the   adulteration   practiced is  ' '    of the most 'flagrant and extensive kind.  Catsups hl-re-made of skins and   cores instead ,of the pure   vegetables,    then   colored with a ooal-tar product   and  loaded  '- with salicylic acid to   prevent  fermenta-  '"  tion. Fruit butters are notning- but parings and   scrapings   of   fruit,    to which  glucose, starch'and   coloring   have  been  added, with salicylic acid as a   preserva-  ��������� tive.    Jellies   are   made   from   glucose,  * flavored , with essential oils and   colored,  to which salicylic acid is added. Some  fruit jellies marked as pure have never  seen a trace of fruit. What is true of jellies is true of preserves. Put together  refuse material, the cheapest .sort of glucose, some coloring and salicylic acid,  and you have the composition of some of  the cheaper forms of preserves, that are  to be found on the shelves of some of .our  grocery stores.    Of these coarser forms of  ��������� adulterations it   will    be   unnecessary to  say even.a word.    Tihey  are .universally  - recognized as unfit to be used, "and every  ' honest dealer is of the opinion   that   the  . sooner they are'driven-out of the market  -., the better it will be for trade.���������The Sanitarian.

Professor Andree was compelled to make use of  a large speaking trumpet in- order to  make his commands audible to his men.  The rest of the party had to shout their  remarks to one another.  "Under the nimble manipulation of  the sailors it did not take long to loosen  the northern wall of the shed so that the  balloon had* a free outlook in . the direction in which it was intended to make  the as ent.  TESTING THE WIND.  "Professor Andree now ordered his  men to bring out the small balloons in  order to- test the direction of -the wind as  accurately as possible. All of them", took  at once a due north'direction. Next the  professor, had the basket quickly fastened  to the balloon.  "A-small cage with carrier pigeons  was placed in the basket and finally a  small cask, containing the first, ready-  made dinner for-the audacious trio, who  perhaps, might never return to enjoy ������  warm meal in the lands of civilization.  "Before Andree and his companions  stepped into the basket, he hastily dictated a farewell telegram to his Majesty,  King Oscar of Sweden, and also one to  The Aftonbladet,a leading daily paper of  Stockholm.  "After this Andree fervently shook the  hands of all who stood around the balloon, and bid them adieu. Then with a  few words of thanks to those who held  the ropes of the big balloon,- and a gesture- of farewell to those left on board  the Svenskund, he climbed into the  basket.  THE   BALLOON IS OFF.   .  "After arranging-the paraphernalia Jin  the small space under 'the balloon he  called loudly to Dr. Strindberg and Professor Fraenkel to -join-him. -������������������ ��������� 'lhe next  moment the last ropes which held the  balloon were cut, superfluous ballast  sacks were thrown overboard, -and "while  the three aerial navigators shouted n  loud, greeting to Sweden and her King  th.e mighty air vessel shot 'upward to a  height of abuut* 200 feet above the sea.  "The furious gale, whioh now .assumed  a northeasterly direction, threatened at  one time -te wreck the explorers against  the rugged cliffs of Smeerenburesund,  when -an unexpected squall suddenly  struck the balloon squarely .on top, so  tbat the basket for a few seconds was  '.lipped slightly under the waves.- ;  "When the balloon rose   from, the   sea  the heavy northeaster again threatened fco-  dash the basket and its occupants against  the rocks of the Smeerehburgfeund's  pro-  monotory.      It swayed .only a few   feet  above the ���������. rooks, but, after   overcoming  this danger the vessel   had'a free   sweep  over   the   far-stretching   Arctic     Ocean,  and at   3    o'clook    it' disappeared   altogether in the azure horizon.  ." ''The, balloon was.adorned with'   costly  Swedish   flags, and froip the   bottom   of  the;"basket was   suspended   a white   silk  .banner with beautiful blue trimmings.;  .'.-^professor NeUmayer, of the Hamburg"  .Observatory; who   also witnessed  the ascent, said to the   correspOnderilb*:-^-1.r  " 'I do not believe that Andree's expedition is, as some assert, a suicidal enterprise.

A Recently Tamed Beait That Would Stand  ,        - m Any Chare*.  Mr. H. W. Seton-Karr, in the Century,  tells of this' experiences* when V After; Big  Game in Africa and India." In the latter country he ��������� hunted as '��������� the guest of  the Maharaja of Huch Behar. Mr. Karr  says:���������-'   - ".*..,,"       /-'~7,"  .   .  One of the first things the Maharaja  did after our arrival was to hand to each  guest a' slip of paper on which was ������������������.written the,name of the elephant allotted' to  him for shooting purposes, which bore on  its back the structure known as a  dah". to carry the shooter and his  As these elephants were necessarily large,  and the howdah is high, the oscillation  was much greater than if onev .were  seated upon a plain' pad upon ,, the - elephant's back, or'ton one1 of the smaller  elephants, which have a -smoother/,..gait.  We usually, therefore, went to the cover,  or jungle,, upon one of the "beating," or  "pad,",elephunts, which afterward during the operations of the day were em*  ployedin a long line to force the" rhinoceroses and other animals out of the  dense thickets in which they live.  The howaah-elephant which   the   Maharaja allotted to  me   was   named "Se  cunder."      Three years previously it was  an uncaptured wild elephant ranging   at  liberty the jungles of Bengal.    'It was a  fine,female,, between nine and ten feet in  height at   the   shoulder, with   short but  perfect "tushes" projecting a few  inches  beyond the upper lip.      There   are  other  elephants in the Maharaja's   stud   which  have been tamed more recently still.      It  was very gentle and   obedient, and   perfectly fearless, and   therefore   very valuable as a shooting-elephant; as,   for   example on 'several   occasions   during   the  following three weeks   it   stood   without  flinching the charge of wounded buffalo,  tiger, and rhinoceros, thus   enabling   me  to take a steady shot.   - Almost 'all-'.elephants show great fear of the Indian rhi-,  noceros; there   are   few   thnt   will   not  turn tail when - they scent their   enemy,  and fewer still-that will st.-tni tho   cra-h  and short snorts that precwle fchfi chnr-^e.  About    breakfast   timt* each   morning  the elephant told off for each- guest ��������� was  .brought %o the,neighborhood of his  tent,  and the howdah   placed   upon it,'' resting  upon a saddle composed of two   cushions  of strong sacking - about six feet by two  which rested  in   turn upon u lartro cl;������rh  covering   the   whole   of "the   elephant's  back.      The   howdahs for   shooting   are  lightly built of wood and. canework,   and  -contain two seats, and racks to hold   six  guns or rifles, three on each   side.      All  this is lashed on by"ropes-passing   under  the elephant's neck, belly and tail.     The  weight - which ' an "elephant   is   able to  carry   upon its back   exceeds a   ton; for  short distances they have been- known to  carry as much as three thousand pounds,  but for long marches half a ton-   is   considered the limit.; "��������� Many of the Maharaja's elephant   had ' fine-tusks- but   most  tusk's' are cut at regular intervals to prevent them 'from   injuring one   another.  One or two   of   the   fighting   elephants,  however, had pointed tusks.

On these rich lands the breed flourishes, and in tbe hands of skillful owners improvement is still effected.

The second illustration shows a sheep  whioh has-been produced by persistent  and'continued breeding from Merinos  ihclinedto'have "the fewest wrinkles in  their fleece.  j The result is a very" fine and profitable sheep. A writer says of this breed:  The Rambouillets, a wool and mutton  sheep, are today, the greatest combination the world has produced. They are  noted for their, early,maturity and quick  feeding properties, being fully equal to  the Down breeds in this respect. Being  of pure Merino descent, they have inherited the' flocking qualities of their  ancestors. This fact makes them in demand for range purposes. They are free  from wrinkles'.' ' .'

Treatment for an animal  which is overheated or is worked too  hard is described as follows: rs ���������. ������������������  The symptoms of overheating are  easily noticed, as the horse will suddenly stop and refuse to work, or in^more  Severe oases stagger and fall. The horse  ihould be unharnessed at once and removed ,to a., shady place, and freely  sprinkled with water, head and body.  Sponging the mouth and nostrils with  water or with vinegar and water will  tevive the animal. ��������� In ordinary cases it  Will take several hours Before the horse  ean safely be removed, as in the process of recovery-it is liable,to stagger  and fall. , The scarifying and' bleeding  of the mouth and ears, not infrequently  practiced by drivers who are frightened  and do not know what to do, are useless  and senseless and only excite the,horse,  then in a condition where rest and quiet  are most essential to recovery. -  The,., prevention ^pf, .sunstroke lies^n  the judicious care of the horse at this  particular time. The patient and careful  driver will have .little to fear from the  heat, .4whereas the man'who'-hurries or  otherwise abuses ^his horses invites sun-  ���������sou. -     ,- -.^j ffai   ;-;      i . , ���������   .  It is well to call the attention of drivers and foremen of ���������* barns" to the liability of horse's to sore, shoulder at the  present time, when ? perspiration^ and  dust easily irritate the;skin.** Theresults  are sores, simple abrasions,'swellings,  galls and abscesses, which if not properly attended to from the start may  make tbe horse unserviceable for weeks  at a time. Pains should be taken , to  wash the shoulders of horses with water and soap when they return from the  day's work, and if there are any visible swellings or sores they should lie  bathed with salt and- water,. and in  cases of open or running sores a carbolic salve or other disinfecting ointment  should be applied.' Horses.in this condition should be kept from work until  the wounds are healed,'.although, in the  cases of small sores pads of straw or  felt may be attached- to the collars or  Other harness parts in such a way as to  prevent further irritation -and pressure.  If this can be accomplished, the sores  will heal, while at the same time the  horse may be moderately worked.  We would also call attention to the  too free use of drinking fountains. In  great heat the horse should be allowed  to drink frequently, but a little at a  time.  A Drunkard Kelaton Hi������ Awful Experience  With Liquor.  T began drinking when I was 17 years  old., Unfortunately at the age when many  another, perhaps no' more worthy of better fortune than myself, was surrounded  by the restraints'of home, it became my  lot to gorout into the 4wprld. The companionship'of older'men-*who were draining the cup of life served to open the  way to the broad'road; which-, many ah-  other^has trod and the byways of sociability and good cheer,iand along the;road  1 sowed the.seeds which in time matured  the harvest of. thistles;,and thorns, gall  and' wormwood.

J3ix or seven years of intermittent drlnk-  dng will bring* f^hls^season. It came to  me. At first the morning cocktail or  "bracer" was an unpleasant dose, .but  time took care of that, and the habit  grew. The period of drinking became  more frequent. The ability to drink more  with less show, of intoxication and .the  system'sjdemand tor higher A stimulation,  ���������coupled with longer sprees/ were the first  symptoms of a habitual desire.,for drink.  Three and'four days of steady drinking,  with little, sleep .and.- less,   appetite for  -���������food; was hot an-uncommon thing-when  man'in question was her husband, who  became so indignant that he sought out  the reckless gossip and gave her a severe  tongue lashing, from the effect of which  she went into hysterics and died.

The old-fashioned  economists have hated nothing so'f much  as the doctrine of   the "right to   work."  But it is just possible that this   doctrine  may make, its way, not   only as a   theo-  ���������retical tenet, but   as   an insistent practical proposition that cannot be put down.  The inequality of, condition between   the  very rich mtfn and the  ordinary   citizen',  who l{as the opportunity to work'steadily  for standard pay, is a   matter   of   slight  concern,    comparatively,   speaking.

" Besides the Ruskin   union���������  , which is still an .experiment in socialism  ���������there is another thriving group of   cooperative workers at Hohenhold.    This is  a' Swiss colony. It owns and operates the  town of Hohenhold   together   with 6,000  acres of laud   in   Lewi*?   and' Hickman  counties.    There are 1*,'200 in the colony,  and although they do not  carry out   the  Bellamy idea of socialism", they'yet   hold  together   as a compact   organized   body,  and are making money. They have poultry farms where 'tens "of   thousands of all'  sort"of fowls  are   raised   and ''marketed  annually.   .  ,  Besides these there are in Tennessee  the Unaka Mountain ,Welsh colony, the  "Harrisites," at Milan���������a religious seot  '���������and the large colony ,** of Waldenses- in  the , Tennessee and North Carolina,'  mountains.  One of the most noted of the colonizing schemes, was the one founded by  Thomas-Hughes, the author of "Tom'  Brown at Rugby." Rugby,1 as Mr.  .Hughes called the place, is in, the Tennessee mountains, ' and was originally  settled by 400 English people.

J  The sacred thread of the Brahmans is  well known! It is a,caste .'distinction  assumed at an early age and never parted w;ith. It must b'e'made- by a Brahman and should'consist of three strands,*  each of a different color, 48 yards in  length, doubled and twisted together  twice,- the ends tied in knots.; It must  be worn next the-skin,.over the left  shoulder, hanging down to the. thigh on  the right side. The three castes of the  Hindoos are distinguished by the materi-?  al of"'these threads���������cotton for the Brahmans, hemp for the warriors and wool  ,for the artisans. The Parsees also wear  the sacred thread, and boys of 7 or 9  are invested with it, the threads used  being made always of fibers of the sura  tree. Mpnier Williams describes the sacred girdle of the Parsees as made 'of  72 woolen threads- forming a flat band,  which is twined three times around the  body and tied in two peculiar'knots,  the 8eoret of which is known only to  the.Parsees. .  The use of "medicine.cords" is common among North American Indians.  Mr. Bourke describes those worn by the  Apaches. < These consist of one, two,  three and four strands, to which are attached shells, feathers, beads, rock crystal, sacred green stones and other articles, doubtless employed symbolically.  ���������-Chambers' Journal. ,  L i  tl  -.I  il  EDWARD BELLAMY.  ;<,s  a,ppearance of   Mr. Bellamy's   "Looking  Backward" gave a great impetus to   this  movement, .and the spasmodic, outbreaks .  of B.ellamyi'sm became   so   frequent "and '  exfcerided'  over such- a'-wide textent.; of- ,  .country that   it   seemed at one time   to  threaten almost an   epidemic ���������'"form.

In the campaign now on, we would remind our readers there is ho politics. It  is purely a business affair.

T. f  Let us oarefally smnmarise what has  been said elsewhere in reference to the financial results to the country of m<>derat>  beer-drinking. A workingmaa who drinks  da'ly two glasses of beer at five eents eaah  will this way spend annually thirty-six dollars aud fifty cents. This represents about  45 gal[ena of beer. This represents about 3$  bushels of barley. For this barley the  farmer gets less than one dollar and fifty  cents.  The balance of the workingman's $36.50  stays in the hands of the brewer and liquor  seller. The workingmaa has swallowed his  beer aod has nothing of value to show for  hie money, He may have weaker nerves a  less olear brain and a dangerous appetite,  bat we leave these oat of ou ealealatton  bow, aad say he has literally nothing.  Sappoee that Prohibition became law aad  the workingman did not spend this $36 50  for beer; it would be available.and would be  spent   for   needful   articles   for his home.  The bread, the batter, the oheese, the meat,  the vegetables, the woollen slothes that   it  would purohise,   are   all directly   or   indirectly the produce of the farm.    If we allow the manufacturers and dealers in the articles fourty per oenfc of the selling price for  profit, the farmer will still get $21.90 and  the traders have $14.90, But it must be no  ticed that now the workingman   has   had  something to show   for   his money.    Food  in his cupboard, clothing for his family to  the full value of $36.60. And it must not be  imagined that the farmer has failed   to sell  his barley.   He has exported either in graiu,  or changed to   beef, or park,  and has received the $1.50 for it all the same, but with  this difference that new  the money to pay  him has come into Canada from abroad, nod  the country has in it $1.50  more than it  would have   if its workingman  had drunk  that barley in the shape of beer.    Lee u������  pat these calculations in tne form of a comparative table, showing what ia the result of  the apeudiug of the workingman's $36.50 ia  these different cases.

THE YELLOW BALSAM  The  Riesengebirge  abounds  in delicious herbsi from -which the most effica-  ��������� cious balms have been at all times made.  ,...    The    inhabitants    of   the   village   of  '' Krummhubel  still  use  essences  made  , with these simples, aud this will appear  " lees surprising wheu   it  is  known that  t    those inhabitants are in part descended  from the students  of  Prague of the famous  school  of Paracelsus, who were  . :"-, -expelled during the war of the Hussites,  and who, without doubt, were in posses-  '. siou of unusual botanical  secrets, the  knowledge of which' is  at  the present  day neglected.    But   among  the  herbs  which the Riesengebirge produces is one  :,' j whioh has become celebrated'beyond all  the literature of ' fable.    It is called the  ' yellow  balsam  and ' grows only' in  a  kitchen garden, of which Rubezahl has  reserved for himself  the exclusive enjoyment;. ;'A marvelous power is attributed to this herb. The most durable' and  -"���������"the most-inveterate maiadies do notre-  i,   sist it.    It. serves < even- to  nourish the  mind,,,and /Rubezahl  permits  only:a  small -number-of "his favorites to gather  it. ���������  Once upon a time  a lady,of distincr  tion who resided'at Liegnitz fell dangerously ill.    Fearing  for  her life, she  sent for a  peasant. of  the  mountains,  and promised' him   a  large  reward; if  he would- bring -.her-a yellow balsam  from - Rubezahl's-garden.    Seduced by  tbe temptation of gain, the peasant ventured to undertake the adventure. When  he had reached tbe wild and desert place  in which tbe garden is situated, he per-  .*.ceived.vthe wonderful plant and, seizing  . a spade, he  prepared' to dig it,up, but  while he was trenching, the earth a fu-  -^rious wind  suddenly arose   and a voice  -'j-likip thunder sounded   in his ears words  which i'he.did not comprehend. tHe rose  up quite  frightened   and   advanced toward the place whence  the ^ noise   proceeded.    Scarcely was  he: able to resist  the, wind   and !keep "himself  upright.  Presently on the-ridge of a rock he saw  the movement of a gigantic apparition.  The phantom had-the human form; his  long beard  hung down to his breast; a  large, hooked nose gave him,a deformed  visage;, his  menacing  eyes   seemed  to  dart'lightnings, and his  locks  and his  ��������� cloak floated in the wind of the tempest.  In one of his hands was an enormous  club, full of knots.  "What are  you"'about  there?" cried  this supernatural being,to the  peasant.  The peasant, conquering like'a brave  man the alarm, which at first seized  him, answered: "I seek'the yellow balsam, , A sickswoman ,has promised to  pay ine* well' for it. "* ���������  ..���������. --"That which you hold you -may -take  away," replied the giant, "but take  good care not to come a second time.''  At these words he brandished his club'  with a terrible'gesture and disappeared.  The peasant pensively descended the  mountain, and the lady thought herself  '"'Kappy'when she saw herself -in  possession of-the remedy which was to shorten  - v her Bufferings.    Her illness, in fact, di-  - -minisbed at' the sight. , Nevertheless, she  - did* not  obtain   a  complete cure.    She  again sent for the peasant.  "Have you again the courage," said  ehe to him, "to go and seek for me the  yellow balsam?"-;   ���������  "Madam,*" answered' the, peasant,  * 'the lord of the mountain  appeared   to  ��������� mo.vthe first, time in. a terrible shape and  forbade me with' threats to set my feet  again in'this garden.    I have too much  ^fear of.offending him." .  However,   the   dame   conquered his  fear by the promise of ������������������������ still larger sum  than^the.first,, and-fcfr the  second   time  ,iie.,determined , to  penetrate into Rube-  ''sahrsddiria.in, but,scarcely, had he be-  5'gun'to dig up. the .yellow balsam when  :;a frightful   storm   again arose, and the  jrSgnire appeared to him more  menacing  etili'thah  he   had  seen it on  his first  ���������������������������journey.     The   phantom's  locks  were  mofe.disbrdered; his cloak floated in the  'air in larger  folds;   lightnings  flashed  r> front)  his eyes.    He cried, with a voice  "which   made   the  mountain    tremble,  . '.^Shat ..are you about there?"    ,  The abysses repeated, "What are you  about there?"  ; ;    ' 'I seek the yellow balsam,'' answered  ',.>the,peasant.' "A sick woman has promised to pay me well for it."  The giant could no longer contain his  the resounding roice of the spirit, and  his limbs  were  as if they had  been  broken;*'' However, he grasped the  bal-  fem in his hand.    At last, soaked with  rain, surrounded with thick fogs, shoved  here  and there by malevolent genii, he  crawled from rock to rock all the night  and   all    the    following'' day  without  knowing where  he was.--; At  length   a  collier,, having  found' him  half  dead  with fatigue, carried; him into his cabin.  There he took some repose and  got rid  of his fright, after which  he  hastened  to return to Liegnits.  The lady was 'de-  -lighted,1 to; see; him  again with the m  much desired plant  and  gave' him   so  large a sumjof money that he forgot the  dangers  he had run and went joyfully,  home.  Several weeks elapsed. The dame  appeared   almost  cured.   Nevertheless,  she was not so entirely.  "If I had a third balsam," said she,  "I am well convinced ' that I should be  out of danger."'  She then sent for the peasant, who at  first was unwilling to come. Instigated,  however, by some evil spirit, he at  length yielded to the entreaties of the  lady.  "Here I am, madam," said he on entering. " What do you want with me? I  hope that you do not require me to ��������������������������� *  third time for the balsam. Heaven keep  me from doing so. I had a great deal of  difficulty to get back safe ; and : sound  from,my last journey. I tremble yet  when I think of it." ,  The lady then conjured him in the  most, pressing manner again, to brave  the dangers.which hitherto had caused  him, but a passing terror. She promised  him great riches and offered him a magnificent farm. In short, she so completely dazzled tbe rash peasant that he  swore, although it should cost him ��������� hi*  life,, to go for.the last time- to .*pnll ��������� a  balsam in the enchanted garden.  "If I come.back from it," thought he  to himself,!.5fl shall be rich, and I may  pass the.->rest of my days in joy and  abundance.'] t  ' He re-entered his -house making these  reflections. Nevertheless,1 he did not  again dare to undertake the perilous  voyage alone.'���������    ��������� ;_",. ',  "My dear boy," he said to the eldest  of his children,"I must' go to the chapel  which is at'the summit of the mountain.  You will accompany me."  They set off together. The more they  advanced the more the defiles became  narrow and .the-"mountains barren.  When'they*-arrived'Jldn' the'-banks' of a  lake which , spread, calmly and, darkly  between two precipitous rocks, the father fell into-a profound reverie. There  .was something in his unquiet looks so  strange that his son involuntarily trembled. ,  " "What is the matter with you; father?" he asked/ ' " " ��������� ��������� ��������� % ' ���������  The father remained silent. Theycqn-  tinued to climb the sides of the mountain, and when they .were near the garden the father said: ���������     ���������'��������� -. .���������  "Evil spirits have misled me- from  my earliest youth, -and therefore I have  always aspired to the possession of great  riches. I have never had -the " fear of  God. I have never had pity for men. I  have led a wild and irregular life, not  giving myself the trouble to set good  examples, which is the duty of a father.  I am now called by satan, for- I must  rob the lord of - the mountain of the  yellow balsam and the lord of, the mountain will destroy me."  The son began, to weep! "Fatheri"  be exclaimed, "renounce" your project.  Return to-the bouse. God is merciful.'*  Wild, however, with despair, the  father had already seized the spade and  -set to work. In an-instant all. the elements appeared to be -confounded together, the winds rwere unchained, the  clouds burst, the brooks were changed  into impetuous torrents, groans issued  from all the plants in the garden. The  mountain opened and' from its crest descended, in the midst of the hurricane,  a giant of prodigious size, holding in  his hand an immense club. He took the  peasant and hurled him in the air. -An  enormous rock fell down and covered  him with its ruins. The son heard the  moans of his father, which gradually  became weaker. For a long "time he remained astounded in the placd. At last,  the sky clearing up, he rose and, thoroughly frightened, sought the chapel in  order to recommend himself to God.  At the moment at which .the peasant  became no more, the lady of Liegnitz,  who had appeared to be almost entirely  recovered, suddenly died.���������New York  News. ..       .

At the same instant flames appeared  to fall on the oriminal and to burn his  face. The powerful club flew round in  the air and dashed a rock near him into  shivers. The ground trembled under his  feet. A frightful clap,of thunder assisted to stun him, and he fell clown senseless. He did hot come to himself until  long afterward.

One warm morning in the spring mt  1780 Mrs. Slocumb was sitting on  the  broad piazza about her home on a large  plantation in South Carolina. 'Her husband and many, of his, neighbors Were  with Sumter,, fighting for  the 'struggling colonies,   but  on  this  beautiful'  morning there were'almost no signs of  war to be seen.   As yet his plantation '  had not been molested, and as Mrs. Slocumb glanced at her little child playing  near her or spoke to her sister, who was *  her companion, or addressed a word  to  the servants, there was no alarm mani- '  fest.   But in a moment the entireecene  was changed.' * "  ' "There come some soldiers," mid her .  sister,'pointing-toward an'officer and ,20  troopers .who turned out. of the highway,  and.entered the.yard....   . ,���������_ . ., .,*>,-,  .Mrs. Slocumb, made nd reply,"although her face became pale and there  was a tightening'of the- lips as she  watched the men. Her fears were not  allayed when she became satisfied that  the leader was none other than'the hated Colonel Tarleton. - That short, thiok-  set body, dressed in a gorgeous scarlet  uniform, the florid .face and oruel expression, proclaimed' the, approaching  officer only too well! But the mistress  gave no sign of fear as she arose to listen to the words of the leader, who  1 soon drew his horse to a halt before her.  Raising his cap and. bowing to his  horse'a neck, he .said,."Have I the  - pleasure of addressing the mistress of  this plantation?'.', ., ���������      .    ,  "It is my husband's.M *  "And is he here?"  "He,is, not.'}, ..���������..���������   "Ho is no rebel, is he?'*  "No, sir. He i������ a soldier in the army  of his country and fighting her invaders."  "He must be a rebel and no friend of  his country if he fights against his  king." J .'������������������  '  .' 'Only slaves have, masters here,1" replied the undaunted woman.  Tarleton's face flushed, but he made  no reply, and, turning  to  one of his  companions, gave- orders for a camp to  , be made in the orchard near by.-   Soon  the* 1,100  men  in  his command had  pitched their' tents,' add  the  peaceful  plantation took on the garb of war.  ,   ^Returning, to the piazza land" again  bowing low  the British 'colonel said:  "''Necessity compels his majesty's" troops  to occupy your  plaoe' for a time, and I  will have to make  my quarters in your  house;   that is,-if  it-will  not be too  great an inconvenience to you."  "My family consists at present of  only myself, my child and sister, besides ' the servants, and we must obey  your orders."      '.       ' .    -  In less than.an, hour the entire place  was transformed. The white tents covered the lawn, horsesjWere tied;to the',  high rail fences, soldiers in bright uniforms were moving here and there. Before entering the house the British colonel called some of his officers and gave  sharp orders for scouring' the country  within the'neighborhood of 10 or 15  miles.     " ���������������������������-.-������������������,  This sharp command was hot lost upon. Mrs. Slocumb, nor was' she slow to  act upon it herself, as we soon shall see.  But for the present, trying to stifla her  fears, she determined to make the best,  of the situation and avert all the danger  possible by providing for the comfort  of Tarleton and his men, and accordingly she had a dinner soon ready fit for a*  king, and surely far too good for such  a cruel and bloodthirsty man as Tarleton soon vvas known to be.  When the colonel and his staff were  summoned to the dining noom, they sat  down to a table which fairly groaned  beneath the good things heaped upon  it. It was such a dinner as only the  South Carolina matrons knew how to  prepare, and the men soon beoame jovial under its influences. '' We shall have  few sober men by morning," said a oap-  tain, "if this is the way we are to be  treated. I suppose when this little war  is over all this country will be divided  among the soldiers. Eb, colonel?"  . "Undoubtedly the  officers will occu-  . The colonel's face again flushed with  anger as he replied, "Excuse me,,bat I  shall endeavor to have this very plantation made over to me as a ducal seat."  "I have,a husband, whom you seem  to forget, and I can assure,you he ie not  tbe man to allow even the king himself  to have a quiet seat on his ground." '  But the conversation suddenly was  interrupted by tbe sounds of firing.  "Some, straggling, scout, running  ���������way,'.-, saic^one.Gf the men, not quite  willing to leave the table.'.  "No, sir. There are.rifles there; anda  good many of them, too," said Tarleton,:  rising quickly and rushing to th-e piazza,  an example which, all, inoluding Mrs.  Slocumb, at once followed. "She was  trembling now, for she felt assured that  she could "explain the cause of the commotion.  "May I ask, madam," said Tarleton,  turning to her as s-*on as he' had given  his orders for the action of the troops,  " whetherr'any of Washington's ' forces  are in this neighborhood or'not?"

A cry escaped her-at the sight, for  there was her husband,, followed-by.two  of her neighbors, pursuing on horseback  a band of five Tories.whom Tarleton  had sent to scour the country. v  '   On and on they came, and it was evi- <  dent that tbe pursuers were too busy to  have'noticed  the  army  of -Tarleton.  Broadswords and various kinds of wea-:  pons were  flashing  in-the-air, and it  was plain" that the enraged Slocumb saw'  nothing but the Tories he was pursuing.  Could nothing be done? ' Would they run  into the very heart of-the camp?   Mrs.'  Slocumb tried to scream and warn her,  husband,   but  not  a  sound  could she  make. One of the Tories had just fallen,  when she saw her husband's horse suddenly stop and swerve to one side.   What  was the cause?  - Sambo, the slave whom Mrs. Slocumb had dispatched, as .soonvas' Tarleton had come, to warn her husband,  had started promptly on his errand, but  the bright coats of the British had so  charmed him tbat he had lingered about  the place,, and-when the sound of the  guns was heard Sambo had' gone only  as far as tlie hedgerow that lined the  avenue., Discretion became the better  part of valor then, and tbe negro in his  fear had crawled beneath it for shelter,  but when-his frightened face beheld his;  master approaching he had mustered  courage enough to crawl forth from his  hiding place and startle the horses as  they passed.  "Hoi on, massa!   Hoi on!" be shouted. '������������������.<-���������  Recognizing the voice, Slocumb and  his followers for the-first time stopped  and glanced about them. Off to their  left were 1,000 men within pistol shot.  As.they wheeled their horses they saw  a body of horsemen leaping the hedge  and already in l their rear. Quickly  wheeling again they started directly for  the house, near which the guard had  been' stationed. * On they, swept, and,  leaping the fence of lath about the garden patch amid a shower of bullets they-  scarted through the open lots. Another'  shower of bullets fell about them as'  their horse's leaped the broad'brook, or  canal, as it was called, and then almost  before the guard had cleared the fences  they had gained the shelter of the  woods beyond and were safe.  The chagrin .of  the  British Tarleton  was as .great as the relief, of Mrs. Slocumb, and when on. the. following.day.  the troops  moved  on the cordial adieu,  of  the .hostess  led  the colonel to say:  "The British  are not robbers, madam.  We   shall' pay. you for all we-have,  taken." ���������������������������-..

FASHIONS FOR.GIRLS.  Summer Frocks For Children From Three  to Ten Tears of Age.  There is almost as wide a diversity, in  the styles for little girls as for their  mammas. After due' consideration of,  this,.bewildering,assortment, however,  the conclusion'arrived at is that for  children from the age, of 8 to 12 there  is nothing more picturesque-and'at the  same time convenient and comfortable'  than the sailor dress. Fortunately there  Heed be no obtrusive sameness, as these  dresses can be varied greatly in color  and design.    '  , A model of the maritime type, and1  designed especially with a view to' seaside wear, recently seen was carried out  SAILOR DRESS. CRESS WITH GtflMPE.  in a particularly pretty combination of  color.' The , skirt of white drill was  made in the regulation kilts and trimmed with six rows of scarlet braid a  quarter of an inch wide, placed, as the  sketch indicates; in,sets of two, with an  interval oi\}A inches of material .between each set. ,Over this came a loose  white garibaldi or _ jumper,' also in the  drill. This must be cut loose enough to  well overhang the waist*,* and to fit properly should be finished with an inch  wide hem; into which an elastic is' run  to keep it compactly together at the  waist.  This jumper is.finished with a sailor  collar, also in white, with' two rows of  tbe narrow braid outlining it This  shows a neat little vest of fine scarlet  serge, decorated with a gold anchor embroidered upon the center of it in thick  purse silk. The knotted scarf, coming  from under the collar should be in scar-  lot surah, and as a finishing touch a  wide scarf of the silk might be drawn,  round the waist and knotted at the. left '.  side with, two long ends hanging nearly  to the skirt hem. The sleeves of thegari-,  baldi are t of the .usual small bishop .  shape, put in .w.ith only a trifling  amount of fullness at the top and fastened with a buttoned wristband.  The quantity of material required to  make this model would be, in the biggest size, 6)4 to 7 yards of drill and %%  dozen yards of braid, which can be*  bought cheapest in the piece of 86 yards.*  Three yards of the surah would be needed to make the sash and handkerchief,  and a quarter of a yard of scarlet serge  would form the vest.  For cool mornings and evenings a  jacket of some sort is required. To wear  over the frock just described perhaps  there is,nothing more fitting than a fine  ribbed serge coat,' cut, of course,! double ,'  breasted and finished with smart little  gilt or pearl buttons. This will be .found  easy to take on and off and will form a  quite warm enough covering.  For small misses up to 10 years frocks  with guimpes are also much patronized.  In wash dresses the guimpes are often  of white washing material. This makes  a very serviceable dress, since it permits it of being constantly freshened. ���������  For dressy wear are dainty gowns of  silk with silk or organdie guimpes. A *  useful little frock is made with a serge  skirt and a detachable guimpe of white  washing silk. Alice Varnum.  py large portions of the country," replied Tarleton.  "Yes, I know just how much they  will each occupy," said Mrs. Slocumb,  unable to maintain silence longer.  "And how much will that be, madam?" inquired Tarleton, bowing low.

Cases of  theft aire almost unknown to  them, and a murder does not happen in  a generation.    There is only one polioe-  inan   on   the   island,   who  spends  six  months of the year in the north and the  rest of the time in Reykj-Svik, where the  only jail  is  located.    According to the  islanders, this   prison   is a magnificent  building, in that it is built of stone, and  they think  it  is a direct  invitation to  wrongdoing, as an inmate of the prison  live.**, in a nice  room, enjoys  the privilege of reposing on a real bed and eating bread   at meals, luxuries which an  ordinary Icelander scarcely ever has the  opportunity of  indulging in.    .In spite  of  all these temptations the Reykjavik  prison is nearly always empty.���������Prisons  Service Gazette. ;  HOUSEHOLD HINTS.

one table/finding eight; or ten men in
midlife, -Weir dressed, all the work going
on in silence .save, the noise of the rattling '"chips?*''on "the gaming table, in one
parlor and the revolving ball of the roulette table in the other parlor. Some of
these men, we were told, had served
terms in prison; some were shipwrecked

all had money in the rapids, and I have
no doubt .some saw. as they, sat there
horses and' carlriages and houses and
lands and home and family rushing
down into the votex. A man's life would
not have been worth a farthing in that
presence, had he not been accompanied

Grap-s Fruit.
Within five years grape fruit has become firmly.established in favor in the
larger cities, and the demamf it don-"
stantly growing, yet there are many persons who scarcely know it when they see
it, /while.to many, others the .price is
prohibitive, says the Providence Journal.
Grape fruit is the largest and moat
handsome citrus fruit grown, ~ many
specimens attaining the size of the Japan
-melon, 'so well' known. It is nearer the
color of a lemon than it is that of an
orange, but its outer t covering is as
s\nooth* as] satin and a its' Keeping quality
i��, quite remarkable. The meat is solid
and the flavor is deliciously tart, but
beware of the snowy white inside covering for that is as aloes. For use in kid
ney troubles and 41n fevers physicians
Highly prize grape -* fruit, - - and formerly
���'many,'patients .went to- Florida in order
to make use of ifc Now the trip is unnecessary, for that purpose at least, as
the grape fruit comes to the patient and
others. ' - -
"The grape fruit is one of the greatest
luxuries as well as a necessity, that we
have," said a Weybosset Street fruit importer. "It is!vthe first, course at the
breakfast table and people never like to
let it pass after once acquiring the taste.
The best early fruit comes from Nassau
and Jamaica, but some very fine Flori-
das are just in. It is more.plentiful this
year than last because the West India
growers were unprepared for the American demand for it last year. Until after
'the\Florida freeze they had not hoped to
compete with the ' Florida -growers, but
this season they were all ready and sent
their choicest fruit here.
;* The grape fruit really is an improved
sort of shaddock, and the shaddock was
���named for Captain Shaddock, who introduced this big orange of the Orient
into the West Indies.' The name grape
fruit is given to the improved sort because of the habit of growth on the tree.
They hang in bunches of three or four
and little circular marks on the skin
show the point of contact and do not
indicate decay, aa many persons think
they do.
"Following the West Indies fruit
comes that from Florida, and lastly California gends her quota of it, but the
latter is hpttsp gopd^asythe rule: The
season thus Extends if rpm October to February or'Slarch. Perfect/grape fruit retail
at 75 cents to $2 a dozen, according to
size, or from 7 to 20 cents each." <���   .

We'see a lovely kind of adaptability
with certain . invalid women who are
able.to make their sick rooms as beautiful as palace towers of fairy bowers���
whose couch is, as it were, a dainty
throne���whose lives, shorn of all bodily
energies, are yet full of mental activities
and such 6weet and tender handiwork as
fits in with their disabled conditions.
Where their unwis* sisters spend their
time in , self-pity, In self-considerations,
in worrying their attendants and in
bullying their doctor in that he has not
the power of a God in his hands and does
not hold the issues of life and. death, of
health and disease like so many tweezers
in his case of instruments, those .wiser
and more womanly, make the best of a
bad thing and adapt themselves to their
conditions. In return for which, sweet
peace and heart's oontent come, to thejm,
like doves bearing' the olive branch
snatched from, the waste of waters, and
they are able to make good the remnant*
left them by their devastating enemy.
Many and many a one of this kind, high
and low, in a mansion and in a cottage,
have we seen in our. way through life,
and perhaps no kind of mental beauty
strikes with so much force as this sweet
and tender patience, this unselfish adaptability to the sorrowful conditions of
disablement and ill health.
The railway companies of Great Britain carried 930.000 passengers in 1895,
of whom 386 were killed. During the
same year in the city of London alone
586 persons were killed by falling from
buildings or out of windows.
