Tho abandoned vessel was afterward  sighted by the steamer Merrimac.' Captain  Thomas Morgan sent his mute, Captain  Howell Williams, on board, notwithstanding the stormy nature of the weather, and  after a consultation ii. was resolved to attempt to run her to port. Captain Williams,  with nine men, accordingly toolc possession  of the Aruo, trimmed her cirgo, which had  shifted, cut away her tattered sails, which  were knotted in lumps about the rigging,  and got her into proper ti nn. One day  they encountered a heavy gale, the waves  being "like mountains," aud they had to  rim before it with a heavy press of canvas,  as the alternative was "travel or sink.'  The speed of the vessel under these perilous  conditions may be gathered from the record  of -2-25 miles m '24 hours. Despite wild seas  and great hardships this gallant little band  navigated for nearly 1,700miles a ship that  had been completely abandoned, resloruig  her and her cargo in good condition to their  owners.  Captain Morgan, when in command of  the steamer Palinas, in 1S03, rescued the  passengers and ciew of the French steamer  Marseille, wlucli foundered ofl the Gulf of  Mexico.  t  IP  ...i 1,  ���������  i|..i , i ���������  T.,"  'i'.  r ii  a i. i1  Ilium.  ,'.! ij-  lt    V.I'll    'I-    I  h. r 'ii .'������.��������� !���������'���������  >i ft- !���������'.'.'.! >I- niw a;..- i; < "I.  *.

The  Second   -said   to   Bo   ihe   One   3Bo������t  ratorable   *.-Jldilih.  M. Korosi, the Hungarian hygiemst, haa  lately investigated the effects of Kjing in  cellars, ground floors ana upper floors upon  the duration of life. He found th&C  dwellers in cellars lived to about 39 years  and 11 months ; those on the ground 'floor  to i'i years and 3 months ; those on the  first and second floors lived to 41 years and  2 months; while those on the third and  forth floors lived only to 42 years,  ��������� All things being otherwise equal, the  observations of M. Korosi,may be accepted  as showing the different effects upon long  gevity by the differently selected planes ot  residence. Tho air of cellars or basements  is never healthy, nor can such localities be  ventilated except at considerable expense;  this also implies ground air and ground  moisture contaminations arising from the  inability to remove the additional contamination arising from the animal exhalations  of the persons living there, along with the  heavier ground air from the street and yard  that of necessity pours down into suth  spaces. Those living on the firetandsccoud  floors seem to enjoy the longest leaie of life) ''  ihip, as might be expected, from tin ���������  greater freedom that the air of those doors  enjoys from foul arises, iniciobes aud  gyms, animal emanations, and from street  dust.' Much hero depends, however, upon  the'character of the Htiirn ; a sleep, hard  fitnira lends to shorten the duration of life,  while an easy, low-stop stuirs, broken by  easy landings at every eight or ten steps,  will lengthen its duration. The bpiral  stairs, winding screw-liko up in a narrow  cylindrical space, are lifeshortencrs.  Tliese stairs save spaco and destroy life  aud ure quite common'in many parts of  Europe, and where oue has to climb thein  to tho third floor tho exertion 19 slowly but  surely telling. Theeliects of atair-cliiubiug  are visible iu the two years of less life  enjoyed by tho inhabitants of the upper  (looi-fr. '   ' ,  These. observations tally   with those of  Strassnuinn, of Berlin, with' the exosption  that in Berlin tho basements give leas mortality than the immediate st reet floor, which  speaks well for the huinnnityuof the Berlin  microbe.    In Berlin the basements are 00-   ���������  cupied   by a well-to-do  cladS, whereas; in  Bu.la-Peslh,   the point   observed   by   M.  Korosi, the basements are occupied by the  very poorest.     We  should   not neglect to  observe that those who can allord a first or   '  second floor flat aie thoso who.asarule, aro  hotter clothed,   better fed   and capable of  surrounding themselves with better hygienic" conditions  than the poorer  of either  the basements or of the upper floors.  ��������������� T,ie  dwellers of the first two floois   aro,  besides, persons better oil in the world, and  1101,11s likely to stiller any physical ili-e'Iects  due   to occupation  as their  less   fortunate ,  fellowmortals on the other floors, although  we can   not overlook''the fact   that, these  better   favored   onos   probably   do   more  worrying, and   that they are  apt to sutler  more  from diseases  of the  kidneys and of  the   circulatory system   ihat   anse   from  worry   and   anxiety ; these   favored ones  would also be more likely to fall viotims to  acute brain or   nervous aflections than the  others. So that wero wo to people the first  and second floors  with the   less worrying  and   less' perplexed  but poorer   class, the���������  length of life of these   would probably  go    ���������  far 111 excess of'the *14 years arid '2 months.  *     NEW TEN COMMANDMENTS.

Another advance toward the North pole  'a promised, this  time   by, Mr. Andree, a  Swedish engineer of repute, who proposes  10   make the experiment next year in   a  balloon.    Mr. Andree has had considerable  experience   in   aeriaT' navigation,  having  made the flight from Sweden,to  Finland,  and as   his project is  by no means a 'new  one, and King Oscar has backed it with a  liberal subscription,   it is not  improbable  th*t it will be tried.     As far back as  18S1  Commander Cheyiie, of the British  navy,  ' proposed  to  reach  the pole in a  group of  .three   balloon's,   carrying  seven   persons,  with provisions, dogs and sledges, starting  '  from a ship in   the highest attainable latitude, so that the pole might be reached in  a couple   of days.      His plan was to take  ' advantage of the northerly air currents to  gain the pole, and to return by the southerly   currents,   just  as   Dr.   Niinseu   has  planned to, drift with the ocean currents,  northward across the   pole and  southward  to tl+e east Greenland shore.     The'success  of   the' project'    would     have   depended  upon  the continuitye'ef the air  currents,  which, if broken at the pole,   would have  which led to the abandonment of a similar  proved fat alto theexpedi tion ;an uncertainty  plan   proposed   by  two   members' of   the  Paris College of Ac-rial Navigation.   Their  scheme was to start,fram Spitsbergen in, a  single balloon,   which   is also   that  of Mr.  Andree,  but it was   given up   mainly be-,  cause of   belief   that   the   wind' currents  circled about the pole, and that the aeronauts,   once caught'in currents,   would  oe  unable to extricate themselves.

They divided their winters  between Rome and Riveria. Robert Marsh  heard of their movements only from the  kind newspapers, for Jasmyn had'decreed  that there should be no correspondence.

Mrs.'Meredith was his  senior by three years, therefore ,she was a  safe as well as a sympathetic confidante.  The two weeks . were not over,1 iu fact  only nine days had passed, when a letter  came to Jasmyn iu a hand she used to know.  She opened it. She read tlie first page, and  then she turned the leaf, and there she saw  the very senteneei she had read when the  windows of her maiden chamber ODeued  into the infinite night.  And that same day Robert Marsh followed his letter. Then Jasmyn Meredith  knew for' the first time her own bean's  secret. .The love that was strong enough  to conquer time and space and speak to  her across the estranging sea was the love  of her own life, as well as of her lover's.

Meredith did not like it, but she was  helpless John Meredith had left his fortune to bo equally divided between his  daughter and his wife, and after Jasmyn  was 21 she was absolutely her own mistress.

UADI.V  FOKMKIl  BUNDLE.  fi  machines of to-day have come   through and  are the result of such a long and thorough  course of development and improvement,  aud manufacturers have followed so closely  the same general lines of construction, that  one can hardly make a mistake in the selection of a machine so long as he is satisfied  to Rtick to the standards. But the man  who allows himselfto become too "enthusiastic over something "new and novel," and  invest in machinery which embodies radical  changes in principles of construction, may  expectito soon have an out-of-date machine  on his hand.' While principles may be  correct, a course of development and improvement is required before best result3  are reached in their application.  There are no less thau eight binders of  different manufacture used within two  miles of where I write, ail giving sutisfae.  tion, so.far as I know, and probably each  owner could name one or more points in  which 'he' considers his machine superior.  But I care not how perfect a machine may  be, it will never be an unqualified,success  nor add fresh laurels to its reputatiou, when  it is run''by a man without'suliicienc iugerr  uioy aud energy to properly, hitch to'and  operate a ciodsmasher. A great many bad  breaks and long delays are,,, the legitimate  results of caiclessness, pure and simple,and  he who makes getting over the ground the  one prime object, to tne neglect of Ins machine and the abuse of lus team, may expect  frequent breakdowns aud much bid luck.  The s.iyiug " care makes luck"-will-apply  to ruuuiug a binder, if to anything. If  some little thing gels out of order and thec  binder begins to " buck," ;,t doesn't pay  to get in a splutter and make matters  worse by changing things at random.

Underbred stock is too plentiful,  and will be at a greater discount in the  future than now ; but fine driving road  horses or heavy draught horses will never  lose their value permanently.

If coni is the leading farm product  that pays-well, they turn their farms into  enormous corn fields, unmindful cf the fact  often that they, do not, understand its  culture nor the expenses attached to il.  Frequently they , have' to make an  initial outlay to adapt themselves to the  abrupt chauge, which alone will take away  all profits.  ' Just now more farmers are preparing for,  abrupt changes than ever ^before. It has  been a disastrous year with most of us.

It is alto proposed to utili/e the  smaller coul, screened limn tho bunker  coal, for a huge electric in-tallaiion and  alio to mike coke and establish local  smelting works.  deed, such a question would  impertinent; but I knew she  consider'it so.  " Why," she replied laughingly, " I  always buy good material and thsn make  it over until there is'nothing left of it."  Knowing something of her talent for  making old things look like, new, I, knew  that was all the secret there was about it.  I'Come and see my new outfit," said my  friend, leading the way to the closet where  her clothing was kept, and taking a drest  from its place. " Do you remember the  tan-colored cashmere that I *a-ore last summer?" '  ",Yos" I replied, "and I remember that  I thought it extravagant, for although it  was very pretty,'it would become soiled in  one season and would then beuaelees."  "This is the same  dressi" was the uns-  Bwer.    " It did soil easily, and I wished to  chauge its appearance so that it would look  new again.    I took it apart, washed it, and  dyed it and the pieces that were left whon"  it was made, with fast brown diamond dye.  Do you nol think it  a lovely   shade?    Of  course   the skirt was  too narrow for  the  fashiou this spring, so I.put  in a panel of  brown silk (made of the back   width of an  old Bkirt, on each side of the front width,  to give it the necessary fullness.    A thick ���������  cord of candle winking was covered with  brown velveteen facing, and put around the  lower odge of her skirt to stiffen it.    Ths  pull's ot the "sleeves were  interlined, with  paper  cambric to   make   them  btand   out  more, which adds acgrt-at deal to their apparent size, and the lowor parts were made  tho uew.pieces.     The old bodice was trim- .  med with a quantity of cream-coloied lace,  aud when this was removed it was a perfectly plain basque, to which   brown   silk  revers and a slock collar have been added.1   '  And now I think it is a very pretty dress."  "It is handsome," I replied.    "I like  it  better than 'when it was new.''  ��������� ,  '    ,   '!  "You see I  have the  cape'that, I have  wished for so long,".she continued, taking  ono from its  place   iu   tho   closet.    "And  what do you suppose* it is  made of?    Why  the white woolen shawl that I have  worn  bo much, dyed the same,color as the dress.  I bought, a pair of gloves to match the suit,  but tho hat is a brown straw that has seen   -  much wear, with the shape entirely changed  by re-Bewing part of the braid and bending  the brim ditlerently.    It was then  cleaned '  with a soft brush and varnished to make it   '  BtiH and glossy.    Most of the trimming -is   ,  new, but as 1 did the work the hat cost me  a little less than a dollar. ���������  -  "This skirt," .sho said, showing ino ������a  black silk covered with draperies of black  net, "iB a combination of two dresses that  have been used in ditlerent ways for years.  The underskirt was not very good; but' the ������  narrow pleating around the. lower edge is  almost new, and that is all that is not covered with the net.','  Then alio brought out tbreo waists that  were made to wear wilh   the  tkirt���������one a    ���������  cieam-eolored China silk with violets soil- ������������������  tcred over it; another of black   aud white  striped summer'silk,  und a   third of pink  cashmere.    "This  was made ot the cream-  colored waist I bought last  summer,   and  iwas dyed its present color   with pink diamond dye.    The lace tnat was taken   from '  the lan-colored cashmere dress was washed  carefully, and rinsed in   water in   which a  little gum  iirnbic  had beeu dissolved,   to  make it us still'as new lace. It was picssed,  smoothly on the marble top of  the   buroau  until dry, and was thou ready for use, as it  needed no ironing.''    It is made full   from  collar to belt, on a fitted   lining,    a  jabot  of lace falls down the front, and tho lace is  carried to the shoulders and caught up with  bows of pink ribbons.  Large puli'od sleeves  are finished at the bottom with a  twist of  the ribbon and a frill of lace.   It is into nd-  od  for evening wear, and is as pretty and  dainty as the owner herself.

Steady farming, with a good rotation ot  crops persi"tenlly followed, is the surest  way to succesi for farmcis. "Abrupt  onanges in order to meet high prices for  aome farm product are dangerous practiced.  It is within tho remembrance of ovoty  farrnei when hay was so low that it hardly  paid to raise it for marker, but.'ii.ee then  farmers hav been making more profit oil"  hay than almost huy other crop. aT0 suit  .the change, a great many dropped hay from  their list of farm crops and, tried to get  along without it. Tlie steady farmers oon-  tinued to give grass a iplace in their crop  rotation, turning it under when it Would  not pay 'toout.and sell it as hay, and when,  prices went up again for'hay they were the  only ones who had good crops to sell.  Besides enriching their soil with the grass^  they found themselves prepared to reap a'  good harvest when prices came around  again to their normal condition.     ��������� f1  Profei' a Steady Death Rate.  Chailes liooth, in the last volnino of his  great work on the poor of London, baa  this to pay about the undertaker's business  as viewed by those engaged in it .  "It is a seasonal trade, and the busy  time is, us would be expecte 1, from Nov-  embor until April though a sudden lush  may come^itany time on the advent of  cold winds oi fogi. What undertakers  prefer is a gojvi,'J steady death rate.  Fluctuations annoy them, for any sharp  rise in the death into is sure to lie followed  by a period of slackness. For instance,the  influenza epidemic greatly ovet worked the  trade in tho years 1891 to 1S93. The weaker  members of tho community were swept  nwuy, aud asa consequent there,is now a  reaction, and this year (1 S!)5) has been one  of the worst ovor experienced in the annals  of undertakers. ��������� This decrease in .volume  of business is also partly due to better  sanitation, and the autumnal riso. in the  death rate, which was known to tho trado  as the 'Plum soason,' is now a thing of the  past."      , yy ��������� .,   :',;'  In temperance  there is ever cleanliness  aud elegance.���������Joubort.

As yet thi.s  activity has only been manifested in a  slight degree in the Kdotcnays, but  rumor h:i������ it that there will be a  number of official decapitations all  over the province.  Last week it was Gold Commissioner  Pitzstubbs who was shoin of a hirge  pcntion of the territory over which lie  formerly had jurisdiction, and the new-  district thus made was ghen to a  younger and more active man.

Uut, as a rule, it is only after lepeated  failures that success i.s achieved.  Profiting by the experience of the  pioneers in' tin's stampede to the hills,  an outfit started yesterday morning,'  provisioned for t wo days, with their  courage screwed to that sticking plage  and a door-die look of determination  in'-theireyes.
