iaHr wliicli, it was ainioiiijceil,
weiilil itive the win ile truth retranl
ing the Tiltnii-Heeclier mailer,
was priiitefl last week. Tt gives
what purports to lie Theislore Til
tonV true statement, which in sub
Mance isasfiillnws: "In 1870 Mrs.
Tiltoii, havii p; just returue'l from a
Summer resort, was visiteil by
Mr. Heccher, wlio made ile nm
sisals to her, which shocked her,
and ot which she inhumed her hns.
bniid. At his request she made a
memorandum of the aHair. Tilton
at that lime was in itimate relation
with Henry I'owen. and naliually
cimtided the ciiuumstance to the
latter. I'owen himself had also
previously denounced 1'eecherV
practices, and now he said the time
had Ciime to act. A letter Was
sent by Tilton to I'eecher and car
ried by Howen, who instead tit
standing by Tilton suddenly liecame
Heecher's friend, and discharged
Tilton from his position on the 1th
dependent. Eight mouths alter an
investigation was about to be made,
and lleecher visited Mrs. Tilton
while she was ill and ohlained from
her a statement that he had 'con
ducted himself as a gentleman and
Christian' in his intercourse with
her, and that when she made the
memorai.diim in quexiim she was
ill and 'in an irreKiosihle condition.'
Tilton was a ni v ei oiigh when he
heard of this, ai.d in bleed Mr. Moul
ton to call mi Heecher and force
him to give up Mrs. Ti'ton's last
paiier. noth the tirst ami second
papers are now in Moulton's posses-
siou. This Rtory Mrs. WihhIIiuII
maiiitged to gel bold ot in an Exag
gerated form, but so near right as
lo extort a 'confession ot the whole
matter trom Mr Tilton, ami thus
bring him and lleecher into her
power." All this is liad enough,
supposing this to 1 the 'ruth; but
when the matter is sifted it is cap.
able of this result that Mr. Heecher
made some remarks to Mrs. Tilton
which the latter misunderstood
Acceitiiig tlie story as true, how
ever, the main injury to Mr. Beech,
er lies mostly in the supposition
that, insulting Mrs. 'I ikon, he was
probably in tlie habitof mkiug plnp
ositions to other ladies, ant) with
greater success. The story evi
dently admits that there was noth
thing more serious then an insult
ing proposition, and we suppose it
has nothing to say regarding other
sins ttf Mr. Heeeher, if there are any.
It is bad enough, we repeaf, as it
stands; but it is not as bad as peo
ple have Uhjii led to believe from
the mysterious silence of Mr. Beech,
er and his friends. Let us, how
ever, hear from Mr. Moullon. It
is in his power te clear up the mys
tery perhaps to emove every stis.
picion and destroy every charge.
To kill rats: take a hand full
of plaster of paris and mix with it
as much pulverized sugar. Place
this on a pan ou the floor, , with a
bowl of water. The result is the
rats eat the sugar and plaster which
creates a thirst, they then drink
the water which causes the plaster
to become paste, which hardens and
kills the rats. This recipe was
tried in this city by an old gentle
man, and touua a success,

The Shah ok Persia, The
Shah of Persia, who is to be the
guest ot England, in the course of
the summer, is, it is said, to have
Buckingham Palace all to himself.
He is said to have taken a trifle ot
three millions sterling or so out ot
the lirqicrial Treasury for traveling
expenses, and there is a strong im
pression abroad that a fair propor
tion of that amount will be ab
sorbed. Mr. Grant Duff, who, it
is said, speaks Persian with a purer
accent than he does English, will
be detailed for court duty. His
Highness is to be treated with the
most demonstrative hospitality, and
that means that a great deal of
vivacious London life is in perspec

A Declined HIseptBg ItartMr.
California paper tells the follow
ing good joke:
A laughable incident occurred
one evening lately on a trip to Sac
ramento, 'there were two seats
in the car turned so as to face each
other. One was occupied by a lady
and the other by a Chinaman.
Evidently tire Udy did not relish
the pre.sfi.te of the Chinaman, and
't her wits at work to oust him.
She succeeded about as follows:
Motioiiii'ir the Chinaman to rise,
she explained to him that she wan
ted to take the cushions and the
frames ami place them lengthwise
across from seat to scat. Joiin said
' all aightee" and got in the aisle
wlule she placed the seats as above
described, and then proceeded to
lie down on the bed thns improvifr
ed, with her head resting on her va
lise. he supposed that the China
man would at once take the hint
that the lady wanted to take a lit
tle rest in the space usually occupied
by four persons. But John hadn't
heard of the womans' rights move
mei it, ai id at once proceeded to craw)
in and stretch himself at her side
with his head on a little bundle of
his own. The Chinese are an imi
tative race, and like to do as others
do, you know The lady, as aoon
as she discovered that she had a
bedfellow, got up, a- little wildly,
anil started tor tlie next car, to the
infinite amusement of the passengers,
who had been watching the little
scene with some interest. John
took no notice of the fun he hail
created, but we t to sleep with tlie
whole bed to himself.
To Make Glossy Sillnm Put
a little common white wax in your
starch, say two ounces to the pound;
then, if you use any thin patent
starch, be sure you use it warm,
otherwise it will get cold and gritty
and spot yolir linen, giving tt the
appearance of being stained with
grease. It is different with color
starch it can he used quite eold;
however, ot that anon. Now, then ,
about polishing shirts; starch the
fronts and wristbands ir stiff as you
cam Always starch twice that
is, starch and dry, then starch again,
lum your shirts in the usual way,
making the linen nice and firm, but
witl out any attempt at a good
finish, don't 4jft the plaits; your
shirt is now ready tor polishing, but
you ought to have board the same
size as a common shirtboard, made
if hard wood, and covered with
one p y ot plain cotton cloth. Put
this board into the breast ot your
shirt, damp the trout very lightly
with a wet sponge, then take a pol
ishing iron which is flat, and bev
eled a little at one end polish gen
tly with the beveled part, taking
care not to drive the linen up into
wave-like blisters; of course, this re
quires a little practice, but if yon
are careful, and persevere, in a short
time yon will be able to give that
enamel-like finish which seems to
lie so much wanted.
