Stationery In the ronfouenu-y.
Reminiscence of books and papers of
the period recalls the dire and unfilled
want of every species of stationery In
each household, and the rough devices
which were resorted to for supplying
such deficiencies. It was a time when
any individual who wished to use an en
velope might be compelled first to make
it, after tlie theory of "first catch your
bat," 1 ta The manner of their making
was to cut them out of paper by a tm or
pasMboafd pattern, and fasten the tlais
either with gluo manufactured from the
gum of the cherry tree, or with ordinary
flour paste. Old desks and secretaries
were ransacked, and frequently not un
successfully, for tho red wafers or the
sealing wax of an earlier date. Even
tho most stylish and fashionablo note
japer for correspondence had an ex
tremely unstylish texture, to say nothing
of its hue. that ill couiorted with the
red wax staniod with a crested coat of

stain, adorned with the head of Jeffer
son Davis, often failed of its purpose;
and the fingers, which were not infre
quently tired enough after cutting out
mid making the envelope, trimming the
pen and writing tho letter, must need
still go through tho labor of separating
the stumps from each other with a pair
of scissors or a penknife, and applying
flour paste to the back of tho recalci
trant stamp, to insure tho safe carriage
of tho missive of affection to tho far
away soldier whose eyes might never read
it. The boys of that day, bereft of pen

Tho horse will leavo musty hay Tin

which some odor makes offensive, how

A blind horse, now living, will not al

dently niado by his sensejof smell, and at
a considerable distance. Blind horses, as
a rule, will gallop wildly about a pasture
without striking the surrounding fence.
The sense of smell informs them of its
proximity. Others will, when loosened
from the stable, go directly to tho gate or
bars opened to their accustomed feeding
grounds, and when desiring to return,
after hours of careless wandering, will
distinguish the one outlet and patiently
await its opening, Tho odor of that par

observed that tho most perfect art could
not imitate nature sufficiently well to
produce &o strong an illusion. Like Pliny
and Pausanius, ho consequently affirms
that "in casting the statue a magician
had thrown Hippotna&ef upon it," which
by tho odor of the plant deceived the
horses, and therein we liavo the secret of
the miracle. The scent alono of a buffalo
ro!o will cause many horses to evince
lively terror, and tho floating scent of a

ONO left to tho Nineteenth century to
implant actual jewels in the teeth, so
that as tho lips move, no matter what

teeth liecoming objects of value. A
"fad" still later than jeweling them is to
preserve tho molars as they are drawn,
liavo thorn carefully polished and wear
thorn as single charms, or, if there be a
sufficient number, havo them set medal

wearing of a human tooth is said to be
unequaled as a carrier of happiness and

'NERVOUS" MODERN CIVILIZATION.
Suhject' aa Viewed by Writer
Far Cathay No Ket.
It is a very significant aspect of mod
ern civilization which is expressed in the
word 'nervous." Its original moaning
is "possessing nerve; sinewy, strong,
vigorous." One of its derivative mean
ings, and the one which we by far most
frequently meet, is "having the nerves
weak or diseased: nbjeot to, or suffer
ing from unduo excitement of the nerves;
easily excited; weakly." The Varied
and complex phraseology by which the
paouliar phases of nervous disease are
tXpreMd has beOOUM by this lime fa
miliar in our ears as household words.
There is no doubt that civilization, as
exhibited in its modern form, tends to
undue nervous excitement, and that ner
vous diseases are relatively more common
than they were a century ago. Hut
trhet we have now to Ray does not con
cern those who are specially subject to
nervous diseases, but to the general mass
of (Vei lental-. who. while not in any
specific condition of ill health, are yet
continually reminded, in a great variety
if wavs. that their nervous lYtteUV are
a ni'isl conspicuous part of their organ
ization. We allude, in short, to people
who ate nervous, ami we understand
this term to Include all our readers, and,

Ours is an age of extreme activity. Ii

Fort IMvis on May 17, and reached Fort
Moade on Sept. making the time 100
days, and 11:1 average of a fraction over
fifteen miles a day, a rate of traveling
considered exceedingly gixxl. The land
and regimental headquarters accom

merely one of the ordinary changes of
quarters, mid is of inten'st only as an
initial step toward n change of system in
transporting troops. Where time is of
