Sigh of the IJrokeu Heart.
BY; AS AMERICAN TOET.
Never, as I have loved th e,
Sbalt thou be loved again ;
With affections deep, unchanging.
Through time, and grief, and pain.
Nine slial! e'er vvuti b above thee.
With such a toudcr cure ;
With tuih unwearied vigils.
Such paticut hopj nud grayer !
Never, as I have known thee,
Sbult thou again be knuv.-.i ;
1 studied every feature,
I ponder d every tone ; ,
Thy frank and joyous bearing.
Thy glad and open smile.
Shall yeem, to hollow spirits,
The mark of perfect giulo.
Vet, if the love I gave thoo
And if the faith divini;
Hare added but a moment
To happiness of thine.
I shall not at a!l regret them
Nor deem those o:7eriugs vain.
Which leave my own existence
A bleak and barren plain.
T!ic Cost of tlie M ar.
Some months ago, United States
Treasurer Spinner, authorized the fol
lowing official statement of war expenses
and the amount paid toward thoir liquid
ation. It shows the amount over and
above the present public debt, raised by
tax-payers, for the purposes of the army
and navy, interest on the public debt in
curred dy the rebellion, and for pensions
for the ciht years preceding July 1st,

This statement shows that in eight
years, preceding the 1st July last, we
actually paid, for expenses of army and
navy, pensions, bounties and interest in
excess of ordinary times, 1,030,2(59,974
87, that is beyond and besides the ordi
nary expenses of government.
This is an immense achievement, and
if the same prodigious effort was contin
ued, would pay off the debt in twelve
years or more. But the Republican
Congress has wisely judged it better to
abate the heavy taxes of the war period
and to reduce the burdens so nobly borne
by the people then, to an amount suffic
ient to pay the interest on tjie public
debt and the ordinary expenses of the
Government, with a small surplus for a
sinking fund. !
For the prodigious expenditure caused
by the rebellion, the Democratic party is
responsible. The whole cost of the war,
over four thousand millions of dollars, is
directly chargeable to that party. For
the great effort of national self-sacrifice
which in eight years paid off from the
proceeds of taxation over two-fifths of
the immense war debt, the credit belongs
wholly to the Republican party, of whose
vigorous and provident policy it was tho
Bleeding at the Nose. There are
two little arteries which supply the
whole face with blood, one on each side ;
these branch off from the main arteries
on each side of the windpipe, and runn
ing upward toward the eyes, pass over,
the outside of the jaw bone about two
thirds of the way back from the chin to
the angle of the jaw, under the ear.
Each of these arteries, of course supplies
just one-half of the face, the nose being
the dividing line ; the left nostril is sup
plied with blood from the left artery, and
the right nostril from the right artery.
Now, supposing your nose bleeds by the
right nostril, with the end of your fore
finger feel along the outer edge of the
right jaw until you feel the beating of
the artery directly .under the finger, the
same as the pulse in your wrist, theu
press the finger hard upon it, thus get
ting the little fellow in a tight place be
tween your finger and the jaw bone ; the
result will be that not a drop .of blood
goes into the side of your face Vhile the
pressure continues, hence the nose in
stantly stops bleeding for j the want of
blood to flow j continue the pressure for
five or ten minutes and the ruptured
vessels in the nose will by that time
probably contract so that when you let
the blood into them they will not leak.
Bleeding from a cut or wound anywhere
about the face may be stopped in the

Many of our readers who have jlanta

Have in readiness some good sandy
soil (with as few worms in it as possible)
in some six-inch pots, nj larger; place
in the bottom of each an inch or so of
broken rocks or cinders for drainage,
and theu fit your plants, with all the
roots you can get shako oti the soil,
prune away somo of tho strongest and
greenest branches, and ' clcinly t nt the
points of the roots where broken or bruis
ed. Do not be alarmed that the pots are
too small, but tenderly work the plant
around and around with a determination
to make it fit, work in the toil gradually,
giving a smart shake every now and
then to "settle," and leave space enough
between the collar of the jT'.ant and the
top of the pot to allow for good watering.
Your next care should be to ripen
what green wood you have left on your
plants, and to do this expose them to all
the sun and air that you can without
frost or frosty wind keeping them rather
dry at the root, and checking too rapid
evaporation, when they seem to flag badly,
by partial shading or sprinkling tho
foliage with lukewarm water.
Lobelias aud new rembergias will have

tightly in one hand, and with the other
slice off two-thirds; under this you will
see a number of healthy shoots will form
your choice for winter flowers if you
attempt to save all, you will lose all.
These will not bear so much sun, aud
will need more water than geraniums,
and should be shaded for some days.
ANIMALS THAT CHEW THE CUD.
Ruminating animals gather their food
rapidly, give it a few cuts with the teeth,
and swallow it. It goes to an interior
receptacle, where it is moistened; this is
very essential if it be dry hay. When
the animal has filled himself, he masti
cates tho food thus stowed away in his
stomach, raising it cud by end. When
a portion is completely masticated, it
passes to another leceptacle, and the
progress of digestion goes on. Thus an
ox, if left to himself, will raise and masti
cate all the food thus stowed away in his
stomach. If he be pushed aud worked
hard, and does not have much time to
masticate, he falls off in flesh his health
is poor, his digestion incomplete. The
horse, on the contrary, however much in
a hurry he may be, must masticate each
mouthful before he swallows it. A
hungry ox let iuto a meadow will fill
himself in twenty minutes, while a horse
would want at least an hour and twenty
minutes to take the same amount of grass.
The ox, deer, sheep, goat, chamois, and
rabbit, beiug the natural prey ot fero
cious beasts are endowed with tho extra
stomach iu which hastily to etow away
the food without mastication. This may
be regarded as a wise provision of nature,
enabling them to sally forth where tho
food is plenty and in a short time fill
themselves aud retire to a place of safety,
to ruminate their feed at their leisure.

Velocipepistical. Says the Ore
rjonuin'. A gentleman of this city re
cently addressed a letter to Messrs. Palm
er, Knox & Co.. velocipede manufactur- 1
crs of San Francisco, to ascertain the
cost of the vehicles. He last evening re
ceived a reply containing some inform-,
ation which wiil doubtless be interesting
to not less than fifteen, thousand people
of this State who have velocipede on the
brain. The manufacturers say they make
velocipedes with thirty-two inch driving
wheel, for, SCO; of thirty-four and thirty
six inch driving wheel, for 65 ; of thirty
eight inch wheel for 70. The thirty
four and thirty-six inch wheels are most
used, being as we infer, most nearly suit
ed to the average length of legs. They
weigh, complete, about forty-five pounds.
They say they have on hand- now nearly
a hundred advance orders tor velocipedes
and that orders are crowding in rapidly.
The Pacific world seems to be agog on
the velocipede question.
Women's Rights. The women's
rights paper at Chicago goes after the

following warning and advice to women.
It says : ' '- . i

and desperate. Man has resolved to see
the world destroyed before he will yield
ono inch of real power to women. Wom

fruits and vegetables, and avoid meat and
stimulants, and constantly look ; to. the
Lord for help. This is earth's greatest
time of trouble."
