" The Importance of moral training in the
1 school-room cannot be over estimated.
from the fact' that in youth are impressions

Ot man at, which he becomes a moral nxt

highly important that every legitimate
effort be made to indelibly print in the
rf ,7 hearts of the young the principles of moml

, .. that they may be able to resist the tempta

! The wisest man that ever lived uttered
these words, "Train up a child in the way

not depart from it," thus implying a fixed
ness in character. We do not mean to say
" ,' that a man who has been a reckless boy is
w , " unquestionably destined to a life of wicked
'. ' oess and shame. He may be reclaimed
" , through the power of the Ruler of the uni

B. A. Cathey.
The Kherman Isiaoaaiida.
The Cincinnati IZnquirer. gives the
following account of the disposition ot
the famous necklace presented to Gen
eral Sherman's eldest daughter on the
occasion of lier marriage to Lieutenant
Fitch : When it was received in this
country the duties demanded amounted i 8
to 2", 000, ao the lowest estimate of its
value was $200,000. The Lieutenant
was unable to pay this sum, and an act
was passed admitting the necklace free
of duty. Lieutenant Fitch then found
that the taxes in St. Louis would take
tlie whole ot his income, and he once
more found the necklace an elephant on
his hands. General Sherman then re"
turned the necklace, with thanks, to
the donor. In rpply, the Khedive aid
that it was not his desire that the dia
monds should be given to any member
of his family, but as he had four daugh
ters he desired that the diamonds should
lie mounted in sets and divided equally
among them. These daughters are
Mrs. Fitch, nee yinnie Sherman, Ella
Sherman, Lizzie Sherman and Rachel
Sherman. The necklace' was then re
turned to the Sherman family and
mounted in four magnificent pendants,
four pairs of pp'endid solitaire earrings
and eight ring" These tour lad ies are
now the happy possessors ot four com
plete Knits of dsamonds, the value of
each suit being at least $75,000. This
makes each of them rich in her own
right, through the generosity ot Egypt's
Waste of Wealth.
The report of Iviiia'sattempt to nego
tiate a new loan, and the undoubted tact
of her paper rouble being now worth
otily 50 cents instead of 75, suggests
some curious ideas in connection witli
the magnificent church now being com
pleted in Moscow, with a thick plating
of gold on Hp dome and cross. This
taiion of gil ling church towers is uni
versal in Russia, and it has been calcu
lated that enough gold is thus lying
i.lle to pay off the national debt. The
Isaac Cathedral, in St. Petersburg, has
a plating of gold three-quarters of an
inch thick over the whole of a dome as
large as that of St. Paul's in LmtJon.
The Church of Our Lady ot Kazin has
a massive altar furniture ot solid silver.
During the great fire of Moscow in
1812 the molten gold and silver were
seen flowing like water from 'the burn,
ing cliurcHes, and the new addition to
them, which is about to be consecrated,
represents an outlay of full', $15,000,
000. The late King of Italy, a practi
cal man in his way, defied the anathe
mas ot the Vatican, aud melted down
to feed Ins people the tons ot silver
Faints and archbishops that crowded
his churches. When will Russia be
ready to do the same?
A curious habit ot English ladies at
the theater is noted by , a French con
temporary. The fair English women,
k ays tho Gallic writer, generally
wear a large qold crops at the throat,
and this cross is hollow and is filled with
some "precious cordial," sherry, Made
ira or brandy. ''Thus fitted, this re
ligious cymbol assumes an unexpected
utilitarian aspect, aud plays a serious
role in the existence ot the ladies ot
generous instincts oleomfort and allows
them to take without scandal before
everybody at a ball or the theater one
of those tonics which it is said the
people of the -; North need to excite,
awaken, ' and stimulate their nerves.
This custom can be observed nightly at
the- ira, where a charming young
English lady is iu the habit ot pressing
to her lips at the most pathetic passages
an enormous gold cross."
-Woman is gradually wringing from
the lorda ot creation a long-delayed
recognition. Step by step she is agitat
ing 'her way. She ha just won a fiesh
triumph in France. There is a Mustard
Congress in session at Paris, aud a nu.
merous committee has been empowered
to decide upon the relative merits of
the mustards of all nations. A ( distin
guished authority asserts that womau
has a keener perception of taste than
man has, and one-halt of this committee
has accordingly been composed ot
women. The world, and especially
mustard manufacturers,' will await the
res'ult with anxiety. '
We suspect that the joys of heaven
will be often embittered by the thought
of bow much more pleasure could have
been got out of the w.lf if proper at
tention 'had .been paitl to life .white it

pation ot tbe after-world.
. . : I A Slnxlnf Hen.
Glen Cove goes to the front with the
"boss hen," not a mere ordiusry ecg
laying hen, but a 'ringing hen, -a lien
that sings "Hold the Fort" with all
the unction of a Widow Van Cott at
camp meeting. This biped is the pet
of a young lady of this village. She
has taught the hen to.aecompany her as
she sings the hymn, and the pullet does
it with a vim, a gravity and propriety
really creditable to poultry nature. She
has only to start the melody and the
pullet joins in and sings along with her
to the ; end, following the scale and
minding the rests in a way that would
delight the most exacting choirmaster;
and what is more aud to the hen'i cred
it, she doesn't giggle during the rehear
sal, nor fliit, nor eat peanuts or candy,
nor munch chewing gum, nor get in a
huff, nor manifest any other of the
usual and soul-harrowing eccentricities
of musical genius. As a matter of gen
ius Glen Cove's singing hen is as much
superior to the boasted egg-laying hens
as the luster of Aide-baran is to the glit
ter of a pinhead in the phiafoTes of
beauty dancing at charity balls.
Connecticut had several costly mur
der trials lately, the most expensive
being the Ilayden case, iu which a
clergyman was charged with the
murder of Mary Staunard, one ot his
parishioners. The case ran for over
two months at two seperate timesj the
prosecution employed eigl.teeu experts
to detect arsenic T in the dead girl's
stomach and to trace blood corpuscles"
on the clergyman's garments and carving-knife.
To experts and witnesses $30,
000 was paid. The Court stenographer,
who transcribed a million and a halt
words, received the neat sum ot j $605.
