An intelligent farmer living in Des
Moines County has invented a henophone,
modeled on the principle of the telephone,
by which one old reliable hen occupying
a central office in the hennery, sits on all
the nests about the establishments, leav
ing other fowls free to lay eggs, scratch
and cackle. As fast as a new nest con
tains the full compliment of egs, it. is
connected with the central cilice by a
copper wire and the busiuess is settled.
The only trouble with the machine is
that it sits so hard it hatches out the por
celain nest eggs along with the others, so
that one chick in every nest is born with
glass eyes, and the farmer has to buy and
train a dog to lead it around. This makes
it expensive. Burlington Ilavck-Eye.

The Courage of Women.
It is common to think and not uncom
mon to speak of women as the timid sex,
and they are likely to afford men a great
deal of amusement and not a little gal
lant disesteem by reason of their sup
posed timidity. Men like to think of
them as precious cowards, and often say
that fearlessness is a masculine virtue
which it would be unfortunate and unat
tractive for a woman to possess. They
unquestionably enjoy her susceptibility
to fright, for it often yields them an op
portunity to act as her protector at
very small expense of spirit. They can
not be with her very long or wry much
without finding occasion to show their
superiority of nerve by presenting a bold
front to a staggering drunkard, or by
striking from her garments a whirring
insect that has alighted thereon. The
timidest man seems braver gonerally
than the bravest woman, so that he who
is not a whit a hero may by contrast ap
pear to be such in her presence one of
the many causes, perhaps, of his fondness
for her society.
A woman is accustomed to think of
herself as timorous, just as a man is to
think of himself as valiant. She has no
shame in her avowal of fear, and is
rather inclined than otherwise to exag
gerate her fear, imagiuiug, from what
men have told her, that her feimmneness
and loveliness depend somewhat on its
degree, or at least, on its exhibition. She
is so easily and constantly alarmed at
trifles that she expects to be beside her
self when some great danger threatens.
And when it does threaten, she is apt to
be surprisingly calm and self-collected.
Startled by a beetle, frightened by a
cow, ready to swoon at the siyht of
blood, she dispises death when it menaces
those she loves, and under its very win
dow is as composed as need be. She sel
dom believes herself free from fear, even
though she be the embodiment of hero
ism, and refers to the scenes through
which she has passed so nobly as shock
ing and terrible. Looking back, her
imagination is far more excited by the
retrospect than her mind was by the ex
perience, and she wonders how she could
have lived through it all. Indeed, her
timidity is almost always before and af
ter the actual danger, which, confronted
lace to iace, is shorn of most of
its powers to terrify. Her nerves and
her imagination are so much more sensi
tive, sympathetic and active than man's
that she is scared by anticipation of, and
at a distance iroin peril, rather than by
With men it is generally different.
His nerves, sensibilities and imagination
are usually tame compared witli hers.
He is stronger, better disciplined, more
experienced; he has, from his very sex,
far les9 cause to tear; he is taught from
his earliest consciousness that faint
heartedness of any kind is unmanly, dis
creditable, even disgraceful. He is ed
ucated to courage, he believes that he
possesses it, and if he has any suspicion
to the contrary, he would never acknowl
edge it, for confession of cowardice is
confession of ignominy. Nevertheless,
in the presence of imiaeut danger, at the
approach ot deatu, lie not intrequently
shames his prelcusions and his sex, and
reveals a shuddering ignorance ot him
self. Neither his will nor his pride will
serve him; his nerves prove weak on su
preme trial, and he palpably cowers be
fore calamity. He falls far below woman.
When she remains steady and tranquil,
he is unsettled and pusillanimous. Such
instances may be deemed exceptional,
though they are not uncommon. It may
be said that woman, as a rule, is more
afraid of remote and possible than of real
and near danger, while the converse is
true of man, as continual examples bear
A just distinction between the sexes
may prove that man is the braver;
woman be more courageous of the two.
Courage is the higher quality, since it is
mental and moral, instead of physical,
as bravery is prone to be. Bravery is in
different to danger through apathy or
through temperament; - courage sees and
feels all the danger, and may exaggerate
it, yet conquers apprehension, preparing
aud prepared by a sort of spiritual ex
altation, and by wholly determined pur
pose to meet the worst that may come.
The former is often an accident of blood;
the latter is a capacity of the soul, the evi
dence of latent if not of conspicuous hero
ism. Woman always sees so much more
peril than there actually is, that, if man
should see what she sees, he would rarely
stand firm. If he were one quarter as
afraid as she is, his intrepedity aud
achievement would be far more seldom
A distinguished trait of women in gen
eral is fortitude, which is the better and
nobler yea, the essential part of cour
age. Man has comparatively a slender
stock. He shrinks from and complains
bitterly ot paiu tSiat they bear without a
murmur, with perfect resignation, with
out a thought of doing augtit save their
duty. lie is peevish, uudiguified, unjust,
well nigh intolerable during a sickuess
which they will bear with sweetness,
even with grace. Reverses of fortune,
calamity, aliliction, anguish of body and
of mind, they will sustain with equanim
ity, when a tithe of her suffering will
drive him to loud outcry, to vicious
courses, or to suicide. They will shiver
and shriek when the first wave breaks
over the vessel, and go down with her in
a hell of waters silent, statue-like aud
serene. They Mill startle the night at a
cry of tire, and perish in the iiames like
an Indian bound to the stakes. They
will scream at the prick of a needle, aud
walk placidly into an open grave. Not
so bold as man' to do wrong, they
are valient to do right. The timid sex
in some things, they are the heroic or
heronic sex in others, and these usually
the greater thing. In many of the grav
est trials of life they are dauntless and
distinguished, when man, their boasted
superior, is craven and abject. Harpers'
The Boy Explorer. Ernest Morris,
the boy naturalist and explorer, who'
showed such precocity in his "South
American explorations and bis subse
quent lectures a year ago, and who lately
returned to New York after another year's
adventurers, makes interesting report of
his work, lie paddled lar up the Ama
zon, accompanied only by Indian guides;
was strckeu with the fever; was ship
wrecked on one of the large lakes through
which the river takes its course, and
only with difficulty found the means to
return to his home. He has no idea of
giving up, but proposes to return, ,as
soon as he has recovered, and "explore
every inch of Brazil." lie says: " If I
can do nothing else I shall take some
situation and w ork, I don't care at what,
until I have got the $G00 or $700 I need.
And then I shall go back to South Amer
ica, and won't make another failure, you
may depend." Morris appears to be a
remarkable plucky- youth.

The career of Isaac Merritt Singer, the
millionaire inventor of the Singer Sew
ing Machine, although he died three
years ago, has not yet lost its interest for
the public, owing to the long contest
there has been over his will and the ex
traordinary facts which have from time
to time been brought to light. Mr. Sin
ger's life combined romance and infamy
to an extraordinary cegree. few men
are so successful in amassing wealth, and
few ever sin so outrageously against the
laws of morality as he did. He began
life with nothing, for years he expe
rienced the vicissitudes of the deepest
poverty, yet when he died he left an es
tate valued at $13,000,000 to $15,000,000,
twenty-four children, and five women
that called him husband. But only two
of the latter were married to him, and
few of his children were his ligitimate
Singer wa3 a native of Schaghticoke,
in this county, where he was born about
the beginning of the war of 1812. He
early moved to Wayne county, where he
married Catherine M. Haley in 1830. At
that time he was a wood turner. Two
children were born to them. In 1837
they moved to New York," and soon af
terward he joined a company of strolling
players, his wife remaining in the city.
At Baltimore he saw in the audience an
attractive looking woman about 18 years
of age, whose appearance excited Sin
ger's interest. . lie found her out, called
upon her and through his representa
tions that he was a single man, she ac
cepted his attentions and promised to
become his wife. Her name was Mary
Ann Sponsler. They went to New York,
where he had a quarrel with his wife and
they separated. Instead of fulfilling his
promise to Miss Sponsler to marry her,
he put her off with various excuses, and
fiually pursuaded her to assume the rela
tions of wife to him, assuring her that
when his fortunes had improved the legal
ceremony should be performed. For
thirteen years the two lived the lives of
strolling actors,playing temperance pieces
in churches, and earning a meagre living.
They carried all their effects in a one
horse wagon, and they were frequently
obliged to leave that behind iu pledge
for trifling expenses.
When in Chicago, Singer's attention
was turned to invention ; aud he devised
a reaping machine for harvesting grain.
In 1850 he made several valuable im
provements, which were embodied iu
what is called the "Singer Sewing Ma
chine," by which he acquired his collosal
fortune, lie returned to New York, and
lived on Fifth avenue, where, as wealth
now poured in upon him, he maintained
a splendid establishment, having ten
horse and six carriages. Miss Sponsler
still lived with him as his wife, though
he had made no effort to get a divorce
from Mrs. Singer. From 1837 to 18G7,
ten children were born to them, eight of
whom are now living. In 18G0, twenty
four years after their separation, Singer
"obtained a decree of divorce from his
wile. In the meantime he had been
building up other family relations. One
was with Miss Mary McGonigal, by
whom he had five children, and Mary E.
Walter, who bore him one child. Both
women shared in his bounties, and the
children looked upon him as their father.
These facts coming to light, Miss Spous
ler, believing that she was Singer's wife,
sued for divorcement. lie denied the
marriage, but admitted the accusation of
adultery, and a settlement was finally
made whereby he purchased her a dwelling-house
in New York, the title of
which was to be vested in their children
on her death. The following month,
after 6he had ordered her lawyer to go
on with the suit for divorce, she was
secretely married to John E. Foster, of
Boston, under her maiden name. She
kept the marriage secret until January,
1803, expecting to get the deed of her
house from Singer. Iu falling from a
chair she was severely injured, and be
lieving she was about to die, revealed
the secret marriage, whi,ch news came
to Mr. Singer. He induced her, proba
bly by threats of legal prosecution for
bigamy, to sign a document which was in
fact a renunciation of their former rela
tions, and to quit the house iu which she
lived. Since that time she has continued
to live with Mr. Fostor. In June, 18G3,
Singer was married in New York to
Isabella E. Somerville, a woman whom
he had met in France. Six children was
the results of this union. They soon re
moved to France, where they remained
until 1873, when he resolved to reside
permanently in England. He purchased
a large estate in South Devon, and started
to build a dwelling that should surpass
the baronial castles in the vicinity in
magu'-ticeuce. But his death ended his
career in July, 1875.
His will wasolfesed for probate before
Surrogate Coffin in White Plaius, West
chester county. It divided the property
in America, valued at $9,000,000, into
sixty portions. There were bequests to
his twenty-four children, to women with
whom he had cohabited, and to Mrs. Isa
bella Singer, Mrs. Mary Ann Sponsler,
now Mrs. Foster, receiving nothing, con
tested the will. She claimed to be the
lawful widow of Mr. Siugejfeut the de
cision of the surrogate's court was against
her, and the general term of the supreme
court affirmed the decision. In the
meantime another will turned up in Eug
land, which settled his property there,
valued at about $5,000,000, upon Mrs.
Isabella Singer and her children. The
property in America, has been all dis
tributed to the legatees; and last Satur
day David Hawley, of Tonkers, one of
Singer's executors, sailed for Enrope", to
arrange the accounts against the English
estate, and place it under coutrol of Sin
ger's last wife or her representatives.
Thus will end one of the most extraordi
nary will cases ever brought before a
surrogate's court. From the Troy N.
Crocodiles. The difference between
a crocodile and an alligator is thus set
forth by one who evidently knows where
of he speaks: "I know the alligator as I
know buffalo, and the Nile saurian is no
more like the South American alligator
than a subsidized, bargain-hunting mis
sionary is like a sincere Christian. The
reptiles before us were from fifteen to
eighteen feet long, sandy-yellow in color,
not at all black, thicker and shoiter in
the head than the alligator, and so sup
ple and lithe as to turn themselves almost
double w hen alarmed, with the ease of
an acrobat. The alligator when turning
moves the whole body. The Nile crocodile
is always a dangerous antagonist. The
alligator in the southern swamps is, at
best, sport for convalescents and boys in
Florida. Even in his native element the
alligator will flee at the approach of
man, whereas I am told by the native
hunters that in the water the crocodile
invariably attacks, deeming himself its
