“Across Afriea” says that on the death
of a Urua chief, it is the custom to di

bed to dig an enormous pit, the bot

placed on her hands and knees, and
upon herback the dead chief, covered
with his heads and treasure, is seated,
being supported on either side by one
of his wives, while his second wife
sits at his feet. The earth is then
shoveled in on them, and all the wo
men are buried alive, with the excep
tion of the second wife. To her cus
tom is more merciful than to her com
panions,and grants her the privilege of
being killed before the huge grave is
filled in. This being completed, a
number of male slaves—sometimes
forty or fifty—are slaughtered, and
blood poured over the grave, after

A M atter of D iscretion .—A
New York paper says: “Should I, in
coming down stairs with my girl’s
father, precede him, or allow him the
precedence?” asks a young man. It
depends entirely upon what you have
been doing, or how big he is. If you
have been doing anything wrong, and
the old man’s bigger than you are, and
you can get behind him, you can readi
ly 9ee what an advantage you will
have by being behind him. If he is
stronger than you, it doesn’t make
much difference who’s behind on the
start, as you will probably reach the
youngest step first. If you have been
merely making a friendly visit, and
it’s simply a question of politeness,
you should always allow “his nibs”
the olace of honor, to-wit: in front.
This will also give you an opportunity
of squeezing her hand or stealing a
kiss while his back is turned toward
you. We would advise all young men
to court in the kitchen, for, if anything
wrong happens them, it is much hard
er for friends of the family to raise you
up.stairs than chuck you down.
C ards .—Cards (says Ince), which
were invented at the close of the four
teenth century, as they weredrawn and
painted by the hand, were proportion
ately dear, and were not in general use
until the reign of Edward IV. The
price of a single pack was 18s. 8d., a
very considerable «urn in those days.
They were originally very different
from those in use at present. In
shape they were square; and instead
of suits of spades, clubs, hearts and
diamonds, their marks were rabbits,
pink roses and flowers of columbine.
The figured cards were very prettily
devised; a queen rising on horseback
with a rabbit, or of clubs. A rustic
looking man, grotesquely dressed, and
standing in a strange attitude, with a
pink beside him, signified the Kuave
of pinks or diamonds.
S oap C ure for H og C holera .—A
year ago I bought six hogs from a
drove’of twenty that were dying with
the cholera, and found, on driving
them home, that they were affected;
they vomited often. I put them with
twenty-five of my own raising,’ and,
boiling some corn in weak lye from
ashes, used some soft soap in their
slop from the kitchen, and I never lost
one, while the last of the drove I left
died. I have one now which took it a
month ago, so bad it would eat noth
ing; it seemed blind. I cured it by
using one dose of common soap, made
thin with water, pouring it down with
a tin cup, by holding the hog on its
back.— Cor. Ex.

V alve of a T rade .—Many a
young man has been ruined for life
because he never learned how to do
anything. “My father,” once said an
intelligent young friend, who found it
extremely difficult to earn a scanty
livelihood by his pen, “did not think
it worth while for me to learn any
trade or business.” He had been un-
expectedly thrown on his own resour-
ces, and, although a man in stature
and years, he was a mere infant in his
capacity to earn a living. There are
too many men of his class floating
around the world—men who have tal
ents, but do not know how to apply
them. Such eases lead us to look up
on the culpability as very great of any
parents who bring up a son without
having been practically and thorough
ly instructed in some way of earning
an honest living. Every man should
have some profession or trade. Then
whether he steadfastly pursues it or
not, he at least has an occupation to
which, in an emergency, he may re
sort for the support of himself and oth
ers who may lie dependent upon him.
Of all men, the practical know«noth*
ing is most to be pitied.
T he L esson of a S neeze .—As a
rule, a sneeze is the warning nature
gives that some part of the body is ex
posed to a cooler temperature than oth
er parts—that the sneezer is catching
cold. Next to the warning, what is
the use of a sneeze? It throws open
the pores of the whole body, and indu
ces a gentle perspiration; in a word, it
throws out the cold. A child rarely
sneezes more than twice—perspiration
is readily induced in youth; an old
man, on the contrary, sneezes half-a-
dozen or a dozen times with a loud
“catchogue.” It is harder to set him
perspiring. When one’is sitting hy an
open window, and finds himself sneez
ing, nature tells him instantly walk
about and take- a full tumbler of cold
water to keep up the gentle perspira
tion that the sneeze set in motion. If
he does this, he will not he telling, an
hour after, that he has a cold in his
head, or chest, or lungs.
always taken at par.
L and L aw D ecisions .—A dispatch
from Washington, dated June 3d, says;
“Copp's Landowner for June reports
the decisions of the Interior Depart
ment in substance as follows: The
burden of proving that land in dispute
is excepted from railway grant is up
on him who affirms the existence of
a valid pre-emption claim thereto at the
date the grant took effect. He must
show that his pre-emption not only
initiated a prior valid settlement, but
that he possessed all the required per
sonal qualifications. The filing of rec
ord is prima-facie evidence of a valid
right as against the railway, and to se
cure a tract proper evidence must be
furnished by the company to show
that the pre-emptor’s claim was aban
doned or invaded at the time the
right of the road attached. After
lands have been offered at public sale
and then withdrawn they may be re
stored to homestead and pre-emption
entry. Until they have again been
offered at public sale they are not sub
ject to private entry. The Commis
sioner of the General Land Office has
t he right to correct what he considers
an erroneous decision without firstgiv-
ing notice of such intention to the at
torneys of record in the case; but as a
matter of courtesy such notice should
be given when the interests of the Gov
ernment are not injured. Deputy min
eral land surveyors must enter into
bonds, with two or more sureties, in
the sum of $10,001), for the faithful per
formance of their duties in the survey
of mining claims. Survey under the
Mining Act does not withdraw land
embraced thereby from sale or sub
sequent survey unless by application
for patent by the party having no in
terest in the mining application; but
a person standing in the relation of
amicus curios (a friend of the court)
has no right to appeal from any de
cision in the case.”
B utt . r M aking .—It is perhaps
one of the greatest defects in butter
makers that they churn too much.
/After the butter ha9 come and appears
on the surface of the buttermilk many
people continue churning tiU it is gath
ered, that is, till it collects together in
large rolls or lumps. This is just so
much too much churning. It breaks the
grains of the butter and renders it
sticky like lard, a defect it can never
be cured of however hard it may
afterwards become, and however nice
ly it may be put up into rolls and
however nicely stamped. The churn
should be stopped as soon as the but
ter is separated and the cream is
changed to buttermilk. This warm
weather, when this change has taken
place, pour into the churn one or two
buckets full of pure cold water and let
it tie then turned over a few times and
then left to stand and cool off for fif
teen minutesor half an hour. At the end
of this time it will be found settled or
gathered all that will be necessary,and
the milk and water can be drawn off.
Then add more water and stir again
slowly, and continue to do so till the
water remains clear or nearly so. The
butter can then be dipped off the wa
ter and placed in the butter worker to
drain, but should not be worked but
just enough to distribute the salt
through it evenly for from twelve to
twenty-four hours. The buttermilk
may then be worked out and the but
ter is ready for use or for packing.
Too much churning is one of the prin
cipal causes of so much sticky butter.
Swiss W atches .—The Swiss are
not very easily beaten. For a long
time they have supplied almost the
entire world with watches; hut of late
they have found that they were being
driven from the field by the American
machine-made article. They are not,
however, discouraged, and It seems
they aro but putting into practice the
old adage, that it is quite lawful to

therefore, introduce American ma
