Tarka Sacking a Town.
BASHI-BAZOCKS PIE.LAGINCI AND MURDER
ING IN THE LONG MA IX STREET
We are in Elena after a sharp day's
fighting, characterized, I am glad to
say, by few of those acts of ferocity
which have disgraced so many Turkish
successes. There is not a sterner op
ponent to the Bashi-Bazouk system
than in Sulieman Pasha, but these
Turkish and Circassian free lances have
been raised by the central Government
into a situation quite beyond control,
and any attempt at suppression would
transform them into even less controll
able brigands. - We are in Elena, and
the sack of the place is now in full
swing. From the window of the houso
in which I have sought a few minutes
of quiet to jot down these notes, and
which overlooks the long main street of
this little town, I see the ruin progress
ing fast. To give an idea of the scene
in this street it needs to be photograph
ed in panorama and thus presented in
its ensemble. Word painting, gives but
a feeble notion of it because the simul
taneity of the incidents is lost. True,
if I say that the 13ashi-Bazouks and Cir
cassians are battering doors and shut
ters with the butt ends of their mus
kets, shattering window-frames to pieces
with their yataghans, blowing off locks
with their revolvers, throwing the con
tents of houses and shops into the
street, still it is only two or three
houses that the reader pictures to him
self, while what I want to describe is
going on on both sides of the way all
down the main street of Elena, which
is a good deal more than a mile long.
In the by-ways, too, so far as they lend
themselves to such work, the depreda
tors are at work, howling and hooting,
drunk with the joys of spoliation, and j
red-hot with the excitement of destruc
tion. It had been intended to take precau- j
tions to prevent the sack of the town
by the irregulars. Three comptiniGs
were to have been told off to protect
the spoil from the hands of those who
had done nothing to entitle them to
participation in the loot; but in the ex
citement of the victory it was not car
ried out, and thus the irregulars are se
curing for themselves, or recklesslv
wasting the great bulk of the booty. I
was in so soon after the troops that
when I went up the street it was com
paratively empty. On a little bridge
over a rivulet which crosses one end of
the town lay three Russians dead, and
the way was almost barred by a dead
horse lying still harnessed to a broken
fourgon; but as I went on, the Bashis
came rushing past, and soon tho street
was filled. Shop after shop was burst
opon. Now a grocer's, from which
skins and bladders filled with cheese
were thrown into the streets; here su
gar was the attraction, and the Bashis
thrust the white sugar lumps by hand
fulls into their breasts and into the
folds of their turbans, and when they
were stuffed scattered the rest about
It must have been a Bulgarian feast
day yesterday, for in all the grocers'
and bakers' shops there was holiday
cake, upon which the Bashis pounced
with childish delight. Now a draper's
shop was tapped, and the yarns and
rougher goods were thrown out to be
trampled under foot, while the long
yarns of calico and cloths were dragged
forth, the pillagers chopping off with
their yataghans such lengths as they
could secure. From tho vintner the
casks of wino were rolled into the
streets and the heads stove in, bottles
were hurled into the air and came
smashing down among the crowd by the
B2ore. From time to times a troop of
n i : i i , .
euuruu pij wouiu come ruslnng mto
the street, hounded ot of their styes
by the side currents of the looters.
Then there was a shout and a chase,
and the poor beasts were bayoneted or
Bhot by rifles and revolvers" recklessly
drod amid tho crowd. Before a silk
store lay an old Bulgar. shot through
the chest, lying as he fell, and a little
further, laid out stiff and straight under
the projecting front of a cook's shop,
was the body of a Bussian, clad in shirt
and drawers, clean and fine of texture,
apparently the remains of some civil
functionary. London Times' Elena Let
ter. Fish as a TjEcjai. Tender. In some
pleasant reminiscences of tho early
Wisconsin bar, a writor in tho Milwau
kee Sentinel tells tho following anecdote
of Judge Frazier: In a case whero a
judgment had been obtained against a
party by the name of Lott Blanchard,
an application was made for a stav of
execution for one year under "the
statute then in force, which author
ized it to be done, where the debtor
could show that he had no property.
Blanchard appeared before the Judge
who questioned him as to his means to
pay the judgment, and the reply was
that he had no property. He was then
asked what his business was and he re
plied, a fisherman. II. N.Wells was tho
attorney for the creditor, and the Judge,
on finding that the debtor was willing
to pay the judgment in fish, addressed
Mr. Wells, and told him that he must
receive fish in payment, at tie same
time giving the dealer explicit orders
to deliver " good and not stinking fish."
Whether tho fish were paid or not, I
was never informed.
now to Select Flock. In selecting
flour firBt look to the color. If it is
white with a yellowish ftraw color tint,
buy it. If it is white with a bluish
cast, or with white specks in it, refuse
it. Next, examine its adhesiveness
wet and knead a little of it between
your fingers; If it works soft and
sticky, it is poor. Then throw a little
lump of dried flour against a smooth
surface; if it falls like powder it is bad.
Lastly squeezo some of the flour tightly
in your hand, if it retains the shape
given by the pressure, that, too, is a
good sign. It is safe to buy. flour that
will stand all of these tests. These
modes are given by all old flour dealers,
and they pertain to a matter that con
Gloves and Pin Money. Gloves
were introduced into England in the
tenth century, but were only- used by
the wealthy people, and were consid
ered very valuable. As New Year's
gifts they were quite popular, or some
times glove money " in place of them.
Pin-money " originated in somewhat
the same manner. Pins were so costly
that money spent or laid aside for them
was called "pin-money," and it be
came so important that it grew into the
name of dower, which was settled up
on the lady at her marriage.

Horses and The Horse Trade.
The number of horses in the United
States is estimated at 8,000,000, Illinois
ranking first in number of equines,
New York next, with over half a mil
lion, then Ohio, Missouri, Pennsylva
nia, Texas, Iowa, Indiana and Ken
tucky. The number of horses in the
New England States is estimated at
500,000, Maine having tho largest num
ber, Massachusetts next. The farm and
work-horses of Maine and Vermont are
noted throughout the land. Tho farm
er who breeds horses knows his own in
terest well enough to study the tastes of
the community, and to breed up to
them. Speed is, to bo sure, only one
of the many qualities which are essen
tial to a good roadster, and size, style,
action, temper, form, constitution, and
enduring qualities are equally impor
tant in making a general estimate of the
character of horses. The horses raised
in Maine are, generally speaking, line"
specimens of the equine race. So are
those imported from Vermont and Can
ada, the latter having peculiarities of
their own, quite distinct from tho thor
ough New England animal. The weight
of a good roadster may vary from S)50
to 1,100 pounds. For ordinary pur
poses on the road and for general work,
an old horse-dealer tells us that from
1,000 to 1,100 pounds is heavy enough.
A larger sized horse would not bo found
serviceable in horse-cars, omnibuses or
hacks, and certainly not in the buggy
or light carriage. A heavy horse will
not last so long over the hard pave
ments of the city, as a medium sized
one. The practico now conforms to
this rule, we believe, as strangers es
pecially will notice in all large cities
(in the East, at least) small, quick,
tough horses for most kinds of work.
A medium sized horse will range irom
lili to 15J hands in height. Uuntons
Character is so much moro than
wealth or knowledge, fame or power,
that it is the measure of the man.
When a man is placed in a prominent
position of any sort whatever, we say at
onco, " What is he worth ? " not " What
does he know ? " Vut " What sort of a
man is he ? " That is the momentous
question that involves all. All others
are secondary. Wealth, knowledge,
fame and power, are most desirable ac
cessions for a good man; but otherwise
they add strength in a wrong direction.
I wonder if the young men and boys in
our land realize that character is the
most important capital in any and all
business transactions. If a man of
large business is looking for a partner
or employee, what does he require first
and most of all? An honest man or
boy. Wealth and position, with this
first requisite, will be no detraction,
but nothing without it.
What pillars are to a building, what
the foundation is, and the corner-stones
thereof, so is a good character to a man
or woman, boy or girl. The wise man
said, A good name is rather to be
chosen than riches," and he had no lack
of wealth, liemember, boys and it
will harm none to remember that you
who are of infinite importance; while
what you have is finite in its value; its
end is the grave; while the former will
grow and enrich its possessor through
all the ages of immortality. Strive for
it as for your life, for life is naught
without it; if a man die for his house
he is an everlasting hero; while if ho
dies for his wealth, he is a sordid fool.
We honor it in death, if not in life.
" So teach us to number our days as to
apply our hearts unto wisdom."
Emigration Does not Affect Lan
guage. Judging from history, it would
scarcelv be too much to say that no
amount of known emigration has ever
been aufllcient to eradicate a language,
or even to destroy its grammatical an
atomy. The language of a people is too
deeply rooted in all its habits of
thonght and life to be driven out by
conquerors and invaders. Modification
it undoubtedly effects, but they are for
the most part superficial. Each country
digests its conquerors and changes their
language into its own. Tho invasion
of England by tho Normans, with all
their power and numbers, while it en
riched the vocabulary of the English,
did not vitally chango the structure of
their language. To this very day the
Welch speak their own language" and
Gaelic and Irish still exist, eomidetly
separated from English. The two
streams run along together, side by
side, but they scarcely mingle. Tho
enormous emigration of Ciermans m
America has failed to produce more
than the most trivial influence on the
English speech.- One of two results
always takes place : either the language
of the invader, or directly the contrary.
They would not mix and make a new
composite, except under the most ex
traordinary circumstances. Language
is like a living tree, which grows and
develops now forms; but it does not
change its vital structure and character.

The Foes of Industry and Content.
- -You can all enumerate for yourselves
the foes that prevent our industry from
filling the present and futuro with real
happiness. Why should not the laborer
exhaust upon to-day the wages of to
day, and upon to-morrow the wages of
to-morrow V The answer is plain. Life
has its Summer time, and, if not its
Winter, at least its fading autumn. The
hard toiling days should not cover all
of life up to its last hour. Work is in
deed, the condition of. success of both
body and mind, but noi a work which
amounts to a servitude like that of a
galley-slave. As silver hairs come, the
quantity of physical and mental strain
should be diminished, and life should
flow more careful as it approaches the
It is one of the painful scenes of the
the day to see industry struggling
against the despotism of almost resists
less fashion. Good men are leaping to
their toil as soldiers hurl themselves
against a parapet, driven not by the
natural and reasonable wants of society,
but by the temporary dreams of the
heart. Fashion slaughters its subjects
like a Dahomey king. In a rational
society it is thought that four hours of
labor would sustain life and that six
hours a day would provide for the fu
ture; but the sacred laws of production
ana provison are rudely broken by the
enormous appetite that wants all forms
of things and in the passing hour.
Thk annual income of the Church of
England is $33,000,000. The church
has 16,000 religious edifices, including
30 cathedrals, 10,000 glebe-houses, 31
Episcopal palaces, and 1,100,000 acres
of land, much of it in good condition
The Reliable Man.
Of all the qualities that combine to
form a good character, there is not one
more important than reliability. Most
emphatically is this true of the charact
er of a good business man. The word
itself embraces both truth and honesty,
and the reliable man must necessarily
be truthful an-1 honest. We see so
much all arouud us that exhibits tho ab
sence of this crowning quality that we
are tempted, in our bilious moods, to
deny its very existance. But there are,
nevertheless reliable men, men to be
depended upon, to be trusted, in whom
j'ou may resposo confidence, whose
word is as good as their bond and whose
promise is performance. If any one
of you know such a man make him your
friend. You can only do so, however,
by assimilating his character.
The reliable man is a man of good
judgment. He does not jump at con
clusions. He is not a rivolous man.
He is thoughtful. He turns over-a sub
ject in his mind and looks at it all
around. He is not partial or one-sided
man. He sees through a thing. He is
apt to be a very reticent man. no does
not have to talk a great deal. He is a
moderate man, not only in habits of
body, but also of mind. He is not a
passionato man, if so by nature, he has
overcome it by grace. He is a -sincere
man, not a plotter or schemer. He
does not promiso rashly. "What he says
may be relied on. He is a trustworthy
man. You feel safe with your property
or the administration of affairs in his
hands. He is a watchful, vigilant man.
You feel secure within his protection.
He is a bravo man, for his conclusions
are logically deduced from the sure ba
sis of truth, and he does not. fear to
maintain them. He is a good man, for
no one can be thoroughly honest and
truthful without being good. Is such
a quality attainable? Most assuredly
so. It is not borne, it is mado. Char
acter may be formed, of course then its
component parts may be molded to that
formation. Portland Price Current.
Fun fok Washington. A cheerful
view of Washington is given in a story
once told by Mrs. Madison to a little
girl, who now lepeats it in Lippincott.
"One day in Philadelphia," said Mis
tress Dolly Madison, "I was sitting in
mv parlor with a very dear friend, It.
B." Lee, when iu walked Payne Todd
(her son) dressed in my calico bed
gown. While we were laughing at the
figure he cut, the servant threw open
the door, and he annonnced General
and Mrs. Washington. What to do
with the dreadful boy I didn't know,
know. Ho could not face the President
in that. garb. Neither could he leave
the room without meeting them, for
tho door they were entering was the
only one. I made him crawl quickly
under a low, broad settee on which I
was sitting. I had just time to arrange
tho drapery when the Washingtons en
tered. After the courtly greeting and
the usual compliments of the season,
there came from under the settee a heavy
sigh, which evidently the General's
notice. However, I only talked and
laughed a little louder, hoping to divert
his attention, when oh, me, thero came
au outcry and a kick that could not be
ignored." So I stooped down and drag
ged, Payne out by the leg. General
Washington's dignity left him at once.
Laugh. Why, he fairly roared 1 He
nearly went into convulsions. The sight
of the boy in that gown, all so unex
pected, coming wrong end first from
under my seat, it was too much.
A Bkilliant Idea. The man who
goes into good American society much
must be impressed with the utter use
fulness of the ives of most of the young
women who move in it. Tho sentiment
of the wealthy class in our simple re
public is inflexibly against an unmar
ried woman doing anything to justify
her existence. Of the ladies under
twenty-five, whose fathers are rich, and
who go into society:
Not more than one in "00 can make a
dress for herself.
Not more than one in 1)00 can cook a
Not more than one in 200 can keep

The" Blessing of Steam Power.
Thefaggregate steam-power in use in the
world is at present three and one-half
million horse-power employed in sta
tionary engines, and ten millions horse
power in locomotive engines. This
force is maintained without the con
sumption of animal food, except by the
miners who dig the coals, and the force
maintained in their muscles is to the
force generated by the product of their
labor about 1 to 1,080. This steam
power is equal to tho working force of
25 millions of horse consumes three
times as much food as one man. The
steam-power, therefore, is equivalent to
the saving of food for 75 millions of hu
man beings. Further, three power
looms, attended by one man, produce
of catton fabric, against four pieces
produced by one hand-loom, worked by
one man in the year 1800. A carpenter's
plaining machine does the work of
The moro quietly and peaceably we
get on the better tho better for our
neighbors. In nine cases out of ten
the wiseBt policy is, if a man cheats
you, quit dealing with him; if he is
abusive, quit his company; if he sland
ers you, take care to live so that nobody
will believe him; no matter who he is,
or how he misuses you, the wisest way
is to let him alone; for their is nothing
better than his calm, quiet way of deal
ing with the wrong we meet with.

Messrs. Seth W. 1'owle A Sous:
Gentlemen Last Spring my little daughter,
aged live, became very much emaciated with
loss of appetite, and great prostration of
strength, bo much so that we were obliged to
take her out cf school. This continued through
the Summer and caused us much anxiety. After
trying various remedies without deriving any
benelit, our family physiician reccommended
the use of 1'ebcvian Svklp. After using it one
week we saw a marked improvement in the
child's condition, and in a month she was rap
idly gaining in health and strength, her apre
tito being excellent. At this date she is per
fectly well, with round, plump cheeks, and
healthy color, and is again attending school
regularly. I consider hor restoration to health
entirely due to the Peruvian Syrup, and fe?
that I cannot too highly recommend it as a tonic.
Very gratefully yours, Ciias. 11 Colgate.
