A process is said to have been dis

experiments have been made with this
discovery which have proved so satis

Of the Prince of Wales the Russian
Count Paul Vasila has this to say:
"The future King of England is chiefly
distinguished from many of his coun
trymen by his complete freedom from
arrogance. His friends say that with
them ho forgets his rank, but it is only
on condition that they remcmWr it,
and his fimiliarity with others is not
lfte theirs with him. Possessing per
fect tret himself, ho never forgives the
want of it, and knows how to remind
those around him of what is duo to
him. No man in public life works
harder than the Prince of Wales. He
is constantly receiving deputations, cel
ebrating anniversaries, presiding at
banquets of all kinds and charities of
every description. He is interested in
every kind of sport and is one of the
best shots living. He may, indeed, be
called a virtuoso of the shot gun. The
condition of the laboring and poorer
classes occupies much of his time and
thought, and has set a noble example
to all landowners by facilitating the
sale of land to laborers on his own es
tate. The prince surrounds himself at
Sandringham with remarkable people
of every kind literary men, artists,
journalists, directors of 'xbihition, con
structor of railways, enximvrs, inven
tors, learned men, politicians of every
shad of opinion ami clever women; ev
ery one who is distinguished in any
way, or who has any claim to connider
atinn, is welcome to his charming
It is said that thero is one office in
the gitt ot the uoverninent that no
body wants. It is the counselship ot
Monterey. Monteroy is a good sized
city, and a very pleasant place to live
in. But the people there have never
trot ten over Gen. Taylor's capture of
the town, forty years ago. They do
not realize that the war is over, and
hate Americans as intensely as ever,
About two years ago they got mad,

In Maine none of the common
styles of invitations prevail. It is all

Two of the bidder for the Govern

talking over he situation with much

that as the bids had been registered

scratched away, the papers were ex

Tho invalid whose health is impaired by
excessive labor, but who is yet able to exer
cise iu the oueu sir, will find a visit to these
notable hut spruits and pleasant river, and
a fortnight or a mouth's stay among them,
vastly more efficacious in restoring strength
and tune to hit system than all the remedial
agencies nf the most skillful physician. I
can spuak niiderstamlingly on. this subject,
ud from evidences furnished by my own
personal experience and observation. I have
visited these hot springs severul times and I
have never yet leeu disappointed with a
mouth's sport or failed to meet with a de
gree of success which abundantly satisfied
lua at least. I have generally gone into the
mountains weakened iu body and depressed
in mind, aud 1 have always come out of
them with renewed health and strength, a
better digestion, aud a huoyaut and cheerful
spirit. For myself, I hare coma to regard
these mountains and grand old forests aud
all this wihl region at my settled summei
resort, instead of th buatlo and strife of
busiuesi. I visit them for their pure air; I
visit them for the inaaterwork of the Creator,
unconsciously repeating, in the words of the
psalmist, "The mountains and the hills
praise the Lord and magnify Him forever."
I visit them, too, for their grand scenery.
Truly there is a lesson in this picture, which
I will leave to the reader to interpret lor
W Inlo at the springs we organized a party
in ascend the grand C imet mountain, on
the north side ot the river. The top of this
mountain resmnblet one of those old castles
that Oliver Cromwell Mowed to pieces with
cannon shot, mid they ucver were built up
again. Our excursion party numbered eigh
teen, all ot whose names I do not remember.
Among them were .Mr ami .Mrs Frank Hen
dricks of Junction, Mr nud Mrs Fugua and
.Mrs brown of Huena Vista, .Mrs l aird ot
Springfield, Mrs. J. 11. Crew of Eu
gene, and one old lady near Gl) years of age,
lo. rt-eemlui! the mountains as sprightly as
any ol the young ladies. We cliuiU-d to
tlni top of Cornet mountain in ote hour and
a hall. The mountain is fl:it ou the top und
covered with fragrant flowers, of which we
counted sixteen varieties, among tin in the
Chinese primrose, vvrbema lieumiia, the Jap
anese climbing furn and the oianoe fern; anil
the preyed leaves of some of these varieties
are marvels of graceful beauty. .Mis Bel
s iw brought Some nf them home, and they
can be seen at my residence. In fact, this
nutlint.im top is one great Hnwer garden, laid
out and planted by the greatest of a'l land
scape gardeners the beneficent Creator. As
wu ducuii.Lud the mountain the heat in
creased, tho sun poured down upon ns, and
wu longed to arrive at the l.ttle inaplo grove
which stands close by the hot spring. W't

under the green leaves of the lesutiful trees.
