Idfo "Vas Only u Dreary Waste When tho
It vns well on in August, aud tho
dronght had dono its worst to tho com.
It was a hot, sultry day, as parched and
dry as all tho days before. Tho sky was
clear but for tho usual hazo that never
left it, tho hazo of woariug heat. About
noon tny father cauio up from tho field
aud summoned us to seo something that
looked liko snow. Tho air about tho sun
Eecnied filled with snowflakes, thick,
innumerable), and flitting rapidly, as
snowflakes do. But snowflakes and tho
clear atmosphcro and tho hot day wcro
quito incompatible tilings. They could
not bo snowflakes, but what clso could
they be? Wo racked our brains in vain
to imagine. Perhaps it was somo kind
of n cyclono which had lifted leaves and
dust aud other such things into tho air.
But thero was no signs of that, and ev
ery ouo of tho snowflakes was of regu
lar size, with no such irregularity as
sticks and branches and leaves carried
into tho air would present.
Wo ato dinner in puzzled uncertainty
as to what was hanging over us. But
two hours later it was painfully appar
ent what tho snowflakes in tho sun real
ly were. Thoy wero full grown grass
hoppers. By 1 o'clock tho air was clear
and serene, and tho grasshoppers wero
with ns. Thoy wero not a few thousand
insects, miserable littlo pests, flitting
about in tho air and getting into your
faco when you wero out of doors. They
wero millions upon millions. Tho trees
becamo brown with them. They cover'
ed tho com as somo insects will literal
ly hido from view a leaf sometimes.
They wcro hungry, too, and began to
eat leaves, cornstalks, tho bark of trees,
anything and everything was needed to
fill this ravenous army that had fallen
upon us from heaven. Ono went out of
doors and stepped on scores at each
stride. They crawled up your trousers
legs and under women's skirts. They
made holes in tho cloth fly netting and
came into tho house. They plumped
hard into your faco with a littlo whack
ing sting wherever you went or did not
go. Everything seemed alivo with them.
I was young then and was filled sim
ply with, a curious wonder. But as I
think of it now I am suro my father
must have been quito overpowered with
dtscouragement when he saw what tho
grasshoppers really meant. Uo saw on
tho first day that thev had alighted to
get a squaro meal and certainly meant
to have it. But day after day they lin
gered, and new terrors developed in
thcni. They had alighted to lay their
eggs. Tho soft earth in tho plowed
fields seemed to pleaso them for this
purpose, and each day you might seo
grasshoppers 1 or 2 inches long bor
ing their tails into tho ground until
only their heads remained above. There
they would stay from moming until
night and then go away. If you exam
ined this earth nest when tho bird had
flown, yon would find a soft, silky co
coon, filled, with innnmerablo small,
pulpy "ergSvrlllch "meant a whole crop
of grasshoppers tho following spring.

OLD CLOTHES IN DEMAND.
Secondhand Dealers Find It Difficult to
Stock Up Tills Year.
Tho demand for old clothes atroears
to bo looking up so far as New York is
concerned. I do not know whether it is
becauso of the recent election and tho
consequenco of betting on tho wrong
ticket or tho molancholy sequel of the
last year's hard times, by reason of
which men feel tho necessity of wear
ing out their clothing instead of turning
It over to the secondhand dealer.
If you should bo accosted on Broad
way a conplo of times a trip by agents
of tho secondhand dealers with the ques
tion whethor you havo any old clothes
to sell, it may not bo taken as an indi
cation that your attiro is out of dato
and coveted by tho trade, but that tho
trado is running short of stock and is
pushing out for a fresh supply. It is
better to consider tho attention a subtle
flattery, that you havo tho appearanco
of an individual who doesn't caro for
dress and aro likely to havo a scoro of
better trousers banging up in closets for
tho moths to feed upon.

The Enterprising and Honest Dutch Hafo
Tho town has suddenly gone Holland
mad, not as that thrifty littlo kingdom
did when it lost its heart over tulips
and threatened to bring tho finances of
tho country to ruin, but wisely, dis
creetly mad, as New Yorkers become.
Tho china shops aro filled with Delft,
the silversmith's cases with Dutch sil
ver and tho very milliners display lit
tlo Dutch bonnets, fashioned liko tho
quaint peaked caps worn by tho good
dames of old Amsterdam. Even Dutch
furniture has become a craze, and fash
ionable shoppers arc passing by tho gor
geous empire styles, decorated with tho
laurel leaf, to buy tho Dutch sofas and
cabinets, curiously inlaid with raro
woods and wrought with picturesque
In far better tasto is thi3 Dutch fur
niture, fashioned, as it is, by hand to
meet tho domestic needs of a sincere,
honest folk, than tho empire furniture,
with its bizarre ornamentations of gild
ed metal and its mock classic patterns,
designed to suit a newly created aris
tocracy. If wo could but bring back tho
simple domestic spirit of tho Dutch with
our Dutch fashions, it would settle many
a social problem, but Dutch fashions as
they now appear are as costly as tho
gilded fashions of Louis XV or tho em
pire. It has long been an established
fact that ono must pay most extrava
gantly for refined simplicity, so that
Delft is often almost as costly as Dres
den. There are pretty fruit baskets in
Delft, "drug vases, " low bed timo can
dlesticks, shoes and the most altogether
delightful tiles imaginable, duplicating
in pattern old tiles, some of which still
exist in manor houses in old New York
and near Albany. It is now possible to
get almost all the new shapes in this
modern Delft, as it is a wiso European
custom to savo all designs used in the
china factory. New York Tribune.
MILTON AND GLADSTONE.
The Britbdi Statesman Challenges the Foet
as a Translator of Horace.
This is Milton's rendering of Horace,
book 1, odo 5 (Quis gractlus Puer):
What slender vouth,bedcwcd with liquid odors,
Courts thee on roses in some pleasant cave,
Pyrrha? For whom bind'st thou
In wreaths thy (widen hair,
Plain in thy neatness? Oh, how- oft shall ho
On faith and changed gtxls complain, and scaj
Rough with black winds and storms
Unwonted shall admire I
Who now enjoys thee credulous, all gold.
Who always vacant, always amiable
Hopes thee, of flattering gales
Unmindful. Hapless theV
To whom thou untried scem'st fair! Me in my
Picture tho sacred wall declares to havo hung
My dank and dropping weeds
To tho stern god of sea.
Mr. Gladstone, at tho age of 85, thus
renders theso beautiful lines:
What scented stripling. Pyrrha, woes thee now
In pleasant grotto, all with roses fair?
For whom those auburn tresses bindest thou
With simple care?
rull oft shall he thine altered faith bewail.
His altered gods, and his unwonted gaze
Shall watch the waters darkening to tho galo
In wild amaze.
Who now- believing gloats on golden charms.
Who hopes thee ever void, and ever kind.
Xor knows thy changeful heart nor the alarms
Of changeful wind.
For mo let Xeptune's temple wall declare
How safo escaped In votive offering.

BEWARE OF PNEUMONIA.
Health Commissioner Edson of New York
Tells How to Ward It OrE.
Although more or less prevalent
throughout tho year, pneumonia is pe
culiarly dangerous during tho opening
months of winter. With the first frosts
a very marked increase takes place in
tho number of cases, and during this '
cold, damp weather extra precautions
Should be taken. Pneumonia is proba
bly produced by an earth microbe, and
when frost provails tho soil beneath
the house is tho only ground which is
not frozen. The germ gradually works
toward tho warm, moist earth, and tho
houso really acts as a sort of flue, which
forms a ready mode of egress for them.
The proper ventilation of rooms is there
fore an important factor in guarding
against pneumonia, one, however, which
is often overlooked.
Lack of personal hygiene is the chief
predisposing causo of the disease. Ir
regular hours, insufficient nourishment,
dyspepsia, excessive fatigue or somo
discaso which has lowered the general
tono of tho system all weaken the pow
er of resisting tho pneumonia germ.
When the system is run down, a sudden
exposure to cold may prove fatal, while
in a normal condition of body it would
bo thrown off.
There are three periods during which
tho susceptibility to pneumonia is great
est They aro early childhood that is,
up to 7 years of age, between the ages
of 20 and 40 and after 60. The power
of resistance against pneumonia grows
much feebler after GO years of age, and
nine-tenths of tho cases prove fatal
Cold, damp weather is favorable to -tho
contraction of "colds" and tho sub
sequent development of pneumonia, and
it still exists to somo extent in a modi
fied form. This is the disease with which
pneumonia most readily combines, but
it is found iiTcombination with diph
theria, typhoid fever, measles, scarlet
fever and many others.
When a severe or sudden chill has
been contracted, the main thing is to
act quickly, and many a serious illness
can be averted and valuable life saved
by a little intelligence coupled with
promptitude. If possible, Eend for a
doctor immediately and take ten grains
of quinino and fivo drops of spirits of
camphor in a little water or on a lump
of sugar. These doses are for an adult
Then soak tho feet in hot water and
jump into bed. Simple as these remedies
are, they have nipped in tho bud many
prospective cases of pneumonia.
While soaking the feet the body
should be warmly wrapped in a blan
ket, which should be kept on until soma
timo after tho person has entered the
bed in order that free perspiration be
continued and not checked.
A good thing to prevent "colds" is to
I wear wool nest skin
When this is
not possible on account of the irritation
sometimes caused, a mixture of wool
and silk will generally be found satis
factory. I would not recommend cotton
in any form for underwear, as it is fre
quently tho cause of a dangerous" cold"
by becoming wet and keeping the tem
perature of tho skin below the normal.
Caro should bo taken that tho feet do
not get wet, or if so that prompt meas
ures are taken to dry them and a change
of hose made.
The care taken of the outside of the
body must be supplemented by the same
caro of the inside. A moderate diet,
wholesomo food, plenty of rest, regular
hours, will keep the whole system in
good order and enable it to throw off
the germs of disease, which can only
obtain a footing when debilitation af
fords an entrance for the disease and a
fruitful soil for its development Cy
