Child Marian in Mischief.
What golden days they were those
early summer days in the Austrain Cap
ital, and what sights we saw, and what
adventures we had, and how lovely Ma
rian grew in the bracing air, and how
we loved her more and moro as the
weeks went on ! Well, no, we didn't
mind her mischief very much, because,
you see. she neermeant to be mischiev
ous, and that makes all the difference
in the world. She generally thought
sue was doing right and her little
pranks were most always more errors
. fcue would never have cut off Har
ry's long hair, but that she thought it
would be more becoming and coruforta
. ble short. She never would have pinned
red strips to the shoulders of my dress
coat which I wore to a court-reception,
and wasn't aware they were there until a
fellow-countryman asked me if they were
a pair of young shoulder-straps. And
I'm sure she didn't mean any harm
when fche put a box of toilet-powder in
to the hat of a distinguished States offi
cer who came to call on us, and he,
poor man, who was nothing if not dig
nified, and not much if he was, felt very
angry when hi3 red face, and bald head,
and black coat received a white shower.
We were very much mortified at this,
and Aunt Elinor looked very severe and
" Marian Marian, why did you do
it? it was very naughty and thoughtless!"
and the little lady replied that she had
only hidden it there for a moment from
Henry, and forgotten to tako it out; and
" I don't hurt him a bit, and it wasn't
half as bad as Harry did for he stirred
up our mucilage-pot with the old gen
tleman's umbrella-handle, and didn't
wipe it off again. Harry was just go
ing to wi?e it off, when ho came ojt of
the parlor so mad about the powder-box,
and seized his umbrella right out ot
Harry's hands before we could tell him ;
and O my! didn't it stick to his
Aunt Elinor groaned, and no wonder.
And I I looked very stern, and said:
" Children, I'm surprised, when you
know I charged you to be especially
good while that gentleman whs here."
"Well," said Marian, beginning to
cry, "wo tried to bo good, and went
down into the court-yard to keep out of
mischief, and we would have staid there
till he came down, only the pins gave
Tins what do you mean?" asked
' O, we had a paper of pins, and wo
stuck them all into the carriage cush
ions, and spelt words with tho heads;
wo wrote 'old poy' with pin-heads way
across the front seat, and it looked so
well we left it for him to see."
A IT, t -
Auni.iiinor groaneii again.
"And we made a cat on the back seat,
and then Harry made a fence all round
her to keep her in a lovely fence! We
lifted up the linen cover of the seat, and
stuck the pins point upwards and I do
hope he noticed it before he sat down."
I didn't wait to hear moro, but I seiz
ed my hat and hurried off to the gentle
man's house, and found him looking
very flushed and angry, as if he misht
be just on tho point" of striking our
names off his visiting list. I did the
best I could with an apology, but the
old gentleman worked himself into a
towering passion, and said:
" It's outrageous, sir, outrageous. I
shall not be able to sit down with com
fort for a week."
I told Marian ainl Henry what he
said, and both children looked very
sorry, but surely did the best they
knew to mend the injury, for when, a
few days after, I went to search for my
court-pla&ter case, Marian looked guil
ty, and said very beseechingly:
"O don't be angry with me, dear Un
cle Will, Isentitto Gen. with such
a nice note.
" O! O!! O!!!" I groaned and felt like
. tearing my hair.
" Don't feel so badly, dear Uncle
Will, 'twas a very nice note, I have a
copy of it here," and she produced a
letter that read as follows:
Dear General: We are very sorry
that yon hurt you when you sat down.
We send you some court-plaster, and
hope it will do you good. We didn't
mean to bo outrajns, and we don't think
it was much trouble for you to get the
powder out of your hair because you
have so little hair on the top of vour
head, and it will brush out of that little
fringe 'round tho edges easy enough.
Harry says he thinks your "head very
pretty behind; it looks just like a o.s
triches egg he saw in a museum.
Did you see what he wrote on your
carriage dishing while your cotehman
was drinking beer with our porter?
Please send the pins back again when
when you get time.
" Don't you think that is a prettv good
"Yes, Marian, it is well enough of
itself, but you ought not to havo done
it you are very naughty to do 6uch
things without asking leave."
- '"What do you suppose
thinks?" said Elinor, hardlv
wueiner 10 cry or Uugh.
"O," I said, trying to comfort her
"ho thinks the children wrote it, and, I
dare say, had a good laugh over it."
" I don't think he did," said Marian.
" Did what, said Marian?"
"Did think we wrote it," said Marian.
"Why not, dear?"
" Because, Uncle Will, I thought he
wouldn't think it much account if ho
thought we wrote it and sol signed
Aunt Elinor's name to it."
" How could you how could you,
Marian?" and Aunt Elinor for a'wo
xuont thought she would cry a little," and
she saw how funny it all was, and she
laughed a 'little instead, and then it
seemoJ rather awkward, and she turned
to me and asked what she should do:
" Do! why there is only ono thing to
do, and that is to go to "the General's
and apologize" which we proceeded to
do forthwith, but not until Marian had
promised never, whilo she was with ns,
to send another note without telling us
about it, and never, never to put any
body's but her own name to her letters.
WtUiam 31. I. Hound in Wirft? Aicule.
The other evening a traveler endeav

closed for repairs in a town out West,
but was unable to effect an entrance.
" That house is closed, mister," said a
pedestrian as he passed along. The

Caoutchouc Making on the Amazon.
Narrow paths lead from the hut
through the thick underbrush to the
solitary trunks of the India rubber trees ;
and as soon as the dry season allows,
the woodman goes into tho seringal
with a hatchet in. order to cut small
holes in the bark, or rather in the wood
of the caoutchouc tree, from which a
milky white sap begins to flow through
an earthenware spout fastened to the
wound. Below is a piece of bamboo
which is cut into the shape of a bucket.
In this way he goes from tree to tree un
til, upon his return, in order to carry
the material more conveniently, he be
gins to empty the bamboo buckets into
a large calabash. The contents of this
are poured into one of thoso great tur
tle shells which on the Amazon are used
for every kind of purpose. He at once
sets to work on the smoking process,
sines, if left to stand long, the gummy
particles separate, and the quality of
the India rubber is hurt. This consists
in subjecting the sap, when spread out
thin, to the smoke of the Urucury or
Uauassa palm, which, strange to say,
is the only thing that will turn it solid
at once. An earthenware "bowl with
out bottom," whoso neck has been
drawn together like that of a bottle,
forms a kind of chimney when placed
over a heap of dry red-hot nuts so that
the white smoke escapes from th-i top
in thick clouds. The workman pours a
small quantity of the white rich milk
like liquid over a kind of light wooden
shovel which he turns with quickness,
in order to separate the sap & much as
possible. Then he passes it quickly
through the dense smoke above the
little chimney, turns it about several
times and at once perceives the milk
take on a grayish yellow color and turn
solid. In this way he lay3 on tkin after
skin until the India rubber on euch side
is two or three oentimetera thick and
ho considers the plancha done. It is
then cut upon one side, peeled off the
shovel and hung up to dry. since much
water has got in between the layers,
which should drv out if possible. Tho
cplor of tho plancha, which is at first a
bright silver gray, becomns more and
more yellow and at last turns into the
brown of caoutchouc as it is known in
commerce. A good workman can finish
in this way five or six pounds an hour.
The thicker, the moro even, and the
freer from bubbles the whole mass is,
so much the bettor is its quality and
higher the price. Scribner for Decem
ber. Tho Science of Naval Warfare.
A correspondent writing of a recent
reconnoisance of the Turkish fleet to
ward Sebastopol, says: "Before con
cluding I may say a few words respect
ing the admirable manner in which the
concentration of the enemy's fire was
managed. They had evidently adopted
the'Siemen'sand HalekeV stadiometer,
an instrument by which the position of
any vessel entering a harbor or the dis
tance of any object in view can be as
certained at a moment's notice. Two
observers are required at the end of a
base line, and they havj merely to fol
low tho motions of the object, if mov
ing, or bring it in the center of the field
of their respective telescopes. The ob
server at the one end has his telescope
affixed to a table on which is spread a
chart of the harbor mapped off into
squares, each of which is numbered.
The pedestal of his telescope carries a
light pointer, either of glass or a light,
open, narrow frame. At the other end
of thi3 table is a similar pointer, at
tached to machinery placed in a small
box underneath, which is worked by
currents cf 1 ctricity sett from an
electro-magnetic battery at the other
station. The moving of the telescope,
in fact, causes the ictary motion neces
sary for the induction of the electricity,
and everything is so adjusted that the
movements of this telescope and of tho
pointer at the table shall always corres
pond. When both the telescopos are
pointed at the same.object the pointers
cross, and the scale of the chart being
in accordance with and in proportion
to the base line, the point of intersec
tion naturally shows the section of the I
harbor in which the object is to be
found. Similar maps being placed in
r.ll the forts and batteries, it is very ea
sy to communicate by flashing signals
the number of the square in which an
enemy's ship happens to be, and thus
tho range at each point can be ascer
tained, and the gnu laid accordingly.
During the day, when the sun is shin

ably; end at night the Hashing of a lan
tern will equally a3 well serve to tele
graph the required information."
C i: o m well 's Vigilance. Oliver
Cromwell carried the system of espion
agp to perfection. There was not the
smallest accident that bef el King Charles
the Second, in his exile, but Cromwell
knew it perfectly well. A gentleman
who had served tho unfortunate Charles
the First, desired leave of Cromwell to
travel, and obtained it on condition
that he would not see Charles Stuart.
On arriving at Cologne, however, the
gentleman broke his promise, and sent
a message to tho exiled King, request
ing that he might wait on him in the
night, which was granted. Having dis
cussed fully on theaffairs of his mission.

well with confidence, and, being asked
if he had punctually performed his
promise, he said that'he had. "But,"
said Cromwell, "who was itthatputout

Discovery of a Statue bj Praxiteles.
In the second week of May, 1877,
there was found in the Olympian tem
ple of Zenus, not far from the portrait
statue of a Roman lady, a colossal mar
ble statue of a nude youth. The lower
portion of the legs and the right fore
arm aro wanting. With the left elbow
ho leaned upon the stem of a tree, sup
porting on his arm a little boy. Of the
latter figure, unfortunately only the
lower part remains and the tiny hand
that he had laid confidingly on tho
shoulder of his bearer. Over the tree
stem on which the arm that supports
tho boy is rested falls the drapery in
rich, deeply cut, and wonderfully work
ed folds, affording to the arm asoftrest
ing place, and gracefully hiding the
support of the tree stem, which in thin
position was technically necessary.
The body of the youth rests 'with an
easy negligence on the leit leg, so that
the soft flesh of the right hip shows in
manifold displacements, the play of the
musoles of the blooming youthful form.
The head is marked by the finest; most
spiritualized youthful beauty, and some
what resembles the heads we see on the
Vatican Meleages or the Hermes of the
Belvedere. The body, too, resembles
those figures, only it is slenderer, soft
er, more vivacious. At the first glance
we are struck by the careless execution
of the hair, which, in the parts that
were usually unseen by the spectators,
is only slightly indicated. The back
of the statuo is also less thoroughly
Now Fausanias reports that among
the gifts of recent date was a marble
Hermes carrying the boy Dionysins,
and that it was a work of Praxiteles.
The eavans who have eharge of the ex
cavations have, therefore and, there
is no doubt, correctly inferred that
our statue is really the Hermes of Prax
iteles, and that we now, for the first
time, behold an original work of that
great artist a work that is equal to the
greatest treasure wo possess of ancient
art, and which must ever remain a corner-stone
of our knowledge of the his
tory of Greek sculpture. London Ath
Which Aro The Best Oysters?
As for comparative merit, that is a
matter which rivals the oyster itself in
delicacy. In Washington or Baltimore,
the oyster dealer will generously admit
that it is quite possiblo to find good
oysters outside of Chesapeake Bay; but
for a "perfect" oyster, he will tell you
that it is useless to look to any other
locality. The Philadelphian is equally
sure that the estuary of the Delaware is
the perfect oyster's only home, a local
prejudice which the oyster-eater of New
York attributes to a deplorable igno
rance of what a first-rate oyster really
is. Doctors differ; and the unpreju
diced can only rejoice that anywhere be
tween the parallels of 3G and 4.0
north , one may find oysters worthy of
any human palate. Here in New York
the favorites are, first and foremost, the
Saddle Rocks, a variety which Jersey
men insist has been exterminated these
many years. They still remain, how
ever, not only as direct descendants
from the colony about the original Sad
dle Rock, but in many other localities
in Long Island Sound; for it was not a
distinct variety that gave the name its
fame, but only an exceptionally thrifty
chance-sown bed of the common natives,
a grade of oyster that artificial cul
ture easily and constantly rivals. Next in
rank may bo mentioned the Blue Points,
coming chit-fly from Great South Bay,
Long Island; the same as the former in
stock, but bred under different con
ditions, and so differing somewhat in
flavor. The products of Shrewsbury
River, N. J., probably come next; these
were formerly transplanted natives of
Newark Bay, improved by develop
ment in the favorable waters of the
Shrewsbury; but more recently, we aro
informed, the seed is commonly brought
from Long Island Sound. Scribner for
Tho Remains of a Crusader's Church
Discovered in Palestine.
On the road from the Mount of Olives
to Bethany, the remains of a Crusader's
chruch have recently been discovered.
In his official report, which appear3 in
the Athencritm, Lieutenant Kitchner
states that tradition has long pointed
out this spot as tho place where the Sa
vior mounted tho ass for his triumphal
entry into Jerusalem. In the ehapel,
which dates from the twentieth or thir
tieth century, there is an almost square
block of masonry covered with paint
ings, which are all well executed, but
badly disfigured. On the south sido is
represented the rising of Lazarus; on
the north side the disciples fetching the
ass; on the we3t there is a niche cover
ed by an arch which was probably sup
ported by two small columns; below
the niche is a portion of an inscription
still remaining. This square block is
supposed to be either an altar, a shrine,
or a portion of the rock cut out and or
namented. The , walls of the small
chamber to the south are also painted
with a design of squares containing
circles, aud the walls of the church are
painted in a common pattern. The
shield of Hamseh has been taken down
from the mosque by the Pasha, and is
now in the Serail. It appears to have
been the cover of a baptismal font, or
of some vessel, and is made of bronze,
containinjr a great deal of silver. The
work apjears to be Italian of the twelfth
century, and is very beautiful.
JLouis Napoleon's Ambition.
When tho late Louis Napoleon was a
candidate for the Presidency of tho
French republic, in 1848, he called up
on Victor "Hugo aad gave expression to
the following sentiments: "I have come
to have a talk with you, and set matters
straight. People calumniate me. Look
at me. Do I strike you as being insane?
People suppose I mean to re-commence
Napolean's career over again. There
are two men whom a man. swayed by
prreat ambition, might take as models
Napoleon and Washington. One is a
man of genius, the other a man of vir
tue. It would be absurd for a man to
say I shall be a genius, but he can say
honestly I mean to be a man of virtue.
It is not within a man's power to be a
genius, but he can alwajs be an honest
man. I could only imitate Napoleon
in one thing a crime. I am not a great
man I shall not copy Napoleon ; but I
shall be an honest man, and imitate
Washington. My name the name of
Bonaparte will be inscribed on two
pages of the history of France. On the
one it will be associated with crime and
glory on the second, with probity and
honor; and the second will, perhaps,
rank higher than the first. . Why? Be
cause, if Napoleon is greater. Washing
ton is better. Between a criminal Nero
and a good citiaen, I choose the good
citizen. Such is my ambition."
COURTESY OF BAMCROFT LIBRARY,

A Wretched Existence.
Other conditions being equal, there is
no reason why a healthy man or woman should
not enjoy life ; and it may well be doubted
whether advorse fortune has the power entire
ly to destroy the happiness of one who sleeps
soundly and whose digestion is good. But for
the nervous, feeble, dyspeptic invalid there is
no comfort in life. Ilia existence is indeed a
wretched one. But he should not despair of
relief. That benignant restorative, Hostettera
Stomach Bitters, has imparted healthful vigor
to many a self supposed incurable. It is an
unequaled builder up of broken down phys
iques, and is besides a'sovereign remedy for dys
pepsia, nervousness, irregular habit of body,
biliousness and kidney and bladder difficulties.
It eliminates from the blood the acrid clement
which gives rise to rheumatic ailments cheers
and relieves the aged and infirm, aud may lie
used Willi great advantage by ladies in feeble
health. Its perfect purity also commends it to
the use of invalids.
Iron inl tbe Human Itlood.
Iron, the oldest of all metals, is also
the most widely dispersed throughout all na
ture. There is "not a plant, nor an animal, nor
an iota of the mineral kingdom, but what con
tains its proportion of iron, and the human
blood is indebted to iron for one of its largest
Iron has been employed for ac' as a medi
cine, but never have its virtues been so fully
appreciated, nor has it ever been so universally
demanded as at the present time.
Our fathers of old were but little acquainted
with therapeutics. If they were ailing, ' too
much blooa" was the verdict, and they had re
course to bleeding as a general panacea; while
the church was constantly preaching abstinence
Tempora inutantur, et nos nxutamitr in illis.
Our medical practitioners have well nigh for
gotten tho free use of the lancet, and our
churches, realizing the constantly growinv
fhysical impoverishment of our race, have
apsed in the enforcement of their command
ments. Indeed, the results of our civilization
with it crowded cities aud sedentary habits
compels us to adopt an entirely different
treatment. Instead of weakening our system
by the barbarous practice of bleeding, it is our
imperative duty in all cases to purify and en
rich. Vie blood.
The most powerful agent for this purpose is
iron. The medical profession have no doubt of
this. Iro determines the principal action of
life and gives to the blood that necessary quan
tity of red globules which constitutes the heal
thy vitality of the individual. Its use quickly
restore the appetite and renders to the gum
plexion a healthy appearance, It is common to
see persons, hitherto perfect images of death,
acquire the health and ruddy glow of tho most
Bnt if iron produces such wonderful results
in all cases of anemy, chlorosis, amenorrhea,
impoverishment of the blood, general debility,
premature exhaustion from whatever cause, the
choice of the ferruginous preparation to be used
must be nude with great care; some prepara
tions being insolluble produce indigestion
others, owing to certain salts, cause constipa
tion or the opposite, slacken the appetite, blaek
en the teeth, possess a disagreeable odor and
many other inconveniences.
There is now being introdmced into this coun
try a .French preparation of Iron, known in
France as liichetse du Sang here it is called
Ked Blooh which we can recommend as pos
sessing all the virtues of iron without any of
the rile ingredients or bad effects of common
preparations. It is indeed the invigorating

It doe so at the expense of the fabrics, hands
and health of those who use suck compooud.
Menlcal men tell us that the Rkiu is a powerful ab
sorbent, and poisoncii compounds In snaps have
been known to spread lrom the hands over the en
tire body. Just as a touch of poison oak in one place
will be carried from head to foot ot the person poi
soned, and many women who suffer constantly
from a dry, htiri insr skin, and who find their per
sonal appearance disfigured by discoloration, will
frequently find the pred'sposinir cause of their mis

Think of tender Infant, children nnd delicate wo

thread of which Is permeated with the putrid poi
sons of diseased fat and dangerous mineral Bub

of soap. The very fact of soaps possessing these
so-called magical qualities, is conclusive evidence
that thev contain substances which are injurious to

pure materials, combined after proper method, by
those skilred in the art of soap-maVing. and we now

which we guarantee to be strictly pure and made
only from the very best refined materials. Ask

To guard purchasers against imposition, we des
cribe our soap as follows : It Is a boiled soap, made
on the most approved chemical principles, from the
best refined materials. It Is of that rich light straw
color, obtained onlv by the most skillful combina

ano compactly pressed into cakes of J,' of a pound
each, with "SMITH. LUCY fe CO., PKERI.ESS

wrapper, with appropriate printed matter thereon
and every care has b-en taken to turn out an arti

KNOW ITS VALUE,
It must be used, so ask your Urocer for " Smith
