OUT IN THE SUGAR-BUSH.
It's romantic. Every time 1
stc a newspaper allusion to the
sunrar-bush I want to move right
out on a farm and rush around
among the maples with a neck
voke and a bucket dangling at
either end. I've been right there.
What I don't know about "sugar

You first tap the trees. Maples
are the beM, but it doesn't do anv
harm to tap a few beech, ash, elm
and oak trees, so'as to brighten up
the taste of your sugar. Twenty
years ago anything was a sap
bucket that would bold sap, even
down to the tea-kettle and butter
bowl. If there has been any im
provement in this particular, so
much the worse for romance.
The sugar-camp should be lo- j
ealed near a black-ash swamp, in
order to get the benefit of frog
serenades and owl concerts. The
arch of the fire should' be
laid up in such a manner that it )
will cave in or bulge out a dozen
times during the season. The
shanty should cost about To cents
for lumber and 1'2 for work. The
morc it leaks the more lomantie
the occupants will feel.

boiling. It ma take a little
longer to boil down, but tlie longer
it takes the more time you have
to boil eggs, gather chickens,
roast potatoes and hunt squirrels.
Gathering up the sap has many
sentimental episodes connected
with it. There are always hill-. The housewife occupies rather a

swamps to gallop over, and where
one owns his own sugar-bush he
can lug two pailfuls at n time or
make use of his plug hat. No
man is called upon to break his
back in order to produce maple
sugar for the public at large.
"Sugaring off" was where the
fun came in. After three or four
days of gathering and toiling and
conning and firing and taking care
of a pair of smoke-stained eyes!
and a cold in the head, the con
tents of the sap-pan got down
pretty thick. It hastens affairs
somewhat to boil up a pound or
two of fat pork, a" dozen eggs
and two or thrcehandfuls of leaves
and sticks. These things can be
left out of the sugar if it i for
home consuption, or left in it if
for general sale. want to say'
right here that there is only .one,
thing on earth to prevent the con
tents from boiling over, and that
was a horse-shoe which was picked
up in the road by a seventh son.

trade at very low figures. Be

wants to sell you a deer's horn,

pint of sunflower seeds in a
The sugaring off is done in a
small kettle. You can tell when
it will wax by dropping some on
the back of your hand. A clean
piece of elm bark, or a big white
chip, makes a boss platter, and a
small chip makes a nice ladle.
Yum I It's good! You sit down
on a log and poke and stir and
blow and eat. Strings of it hang
down from your jaws, and more
strings wind themselves along
your vest arid clutch your coat.
Overhead are the budding trees:
Behind you is the hillside. Off to
the left is a pearly creek, and off
to the right is a farmer trying to
pull a cow along by the horns.
The romance of the situation hits
a person right between the eyes.
There are also ticks and bugs
around the old Jog. A school

Old Customs in Thibet
The principal food of the coun
try is called jamba. To make it a
quantity of powdered tea is cook
ed for several hours, after which it
is poured into a ehnrn, when sail
and butter ate added, and the
whole is stirred until :t complete
mixture is effected. The broth is
then divided among the hungry
ones, each of whom gets his share
in a wooden bowl, after which a
sack of roasted barley meal is
brought out. Everyone takes a
handful of meal from the sack,
puts it into the lea and mixes the
mass into a shapely lump, and
swallows his dough with a keen
appetite. After the meal is over,
the wooden bowls are licked clean
with the tongue and worn on the
breast next to the skin as oinc-
Polyandry is practised, not on
ncCount of any lack of women, tor
tnere s no j, .IC but as a
Illeaslin. of economv. When the
oldest son marries, his wife also
becomes the wife of his brothers.
The custom docs not lead to so
many difficulties as it might be
supposed it would, and the chief
trouble arising out of it concerns
the fatherhood of the. children.
Three ways of burying the dead
prevail. The poor sink their dead
in one of tho mountain streams;
those of the better class hang the
bodies upon a tree, where they are
consumed by birds, and the bones
arc afterwards thrown into the
river; the rich cut the bodies up
into small pieces, pound the bones
and mix thein with jamba, and
then carry the remains to the
mountains, where they are left for
the birds. These are old customs
and have no connection with ie
ligrion. Ocean Freights
According to the San Francisco
Journal of Commerce the wheat
fleet of 1881-2 was the greatest
ever known in the history of the
state, Tt consists of ."r0 vessels
carrying wheat and flour and nine
canying flour alone. There were
at one period of the vear too few
vessels for the wheat that came to
hand and freights were forced up
to unusual figures, reaching in one
instance 4. 30d per ton. This
was the climax. But the ft eight
ruled high most of the year. To
wards the cjose, from the threat
ened railroad competition and
other causes, it declined. The
lowest rate of the year was JL'2 to
Australia. The rate that the larg
est number of vessels paid was
3 10s for 51. The next largest
was jC'S 5s, which the shippers on
od vessels paid. Bv far the larger
portion of vessels that cleared early
in the year were paid over .').
The value in dollars of the freight
paid on wheat, not including flour,
has been for the harvest year SI G,
0C9,T89.8G -1-5 nearly, over sixteen
millions of dollars. The number
of long tons of wheat carried was
9S0,711, and the average rate per
ton 3 Gs 10 4-5d nearly, or in
American coin 91G.2T $4-100
nearly, about S3:V cents tier" cen
tal. In a healthy body is a healthy
spirit. Be healthyy cleansing your

X. Y., is a fair sample of the
spread of the habit. Twenty-five
years ago, with a population of
57.000, the annual sales of opium
iti Albany amounted to only 49
pounds and JG5 ounces of morphia.
Now with a population of 91,000,
o,500 pounds of opium and 5,500
ounces of morphia are sold annu
ally in that city. It is true that
most of these drugs are sold for
medical use, but the sugestive fact
remains that the increase in the
population of Alhany v.i been
but .59, while the increase in the
sale of opium has been 900 per
cent. One of the druggists of
Albany is quoted as saving that
where, 25 years ago, he made
laudanum by the gallon he now
prepares it by the barrel. I'm
fortunately, what is true of Albany
in this respect seems to be true of
the rest of the country, and there
is force in the writer's suggestion
that it is time to regulate and
limit the sales of opium by legis
lative enactment. r.et it alone,'
and he fears that 'opium may, ere
many years, be used as extensive
ly in America as in China.
Yesterday, says a late issue of
the San Francisco Stock Report,
Superintendent Taylor had to
turn away 105 children from the
doois of the Lincoln school, and
this morning some fifty more.
Some of the parents were veiy
importunate, but it was no use.
"But 1 must get my children in,"
said one resolute 'mother, ''But,
my good woman," said Superin
tendent Taylor, ."you can't get
them in: 1 tell you there is no
room.1' "1 must get them in,"
she persisted; "here T have reared
in this city seven children without
any father, and I think I am en
titled to get them into the schools."
"Under such circumstances, mad
am,'' answered Mr. Taylor, "I
certainly think you ate. You
shall have the first chance.1"
San Francisco consumes ilaily
SC,000 crabs,j)ayinc tlierefoi to the
fishermen ?. cents per dozen., or
about fc?r,000 annually. Of
shrimps she consumes a ton and a
half or 3,000 lbs. per day, for which
the fishermen receive about $15,-
000 per month 1SO,000 per
annum at 'J cts. per pound. The
wholesalers get 1T cents per
pound, delivered to restaurants and
luch counters. San Francisco bay
is the only locality where any at
tention is paid to catching them.
The industry there employs f00
persons and 40 boats. A large
portion ot the toal catch is dried
for shipment to China, lu pounds
of the fresh making one of the
dried, which brings the drier ." to
8 cents per pound.
A California school girl who
took a prize of $20 given to the
graduate who should wear the
cheapest dress on commencement
day, has put the money in the
bank with ten dollars given her b
uncle for leaving oil" chewing gum,
and five more given her by her
grandmother for reading the Bible
through, and is going for seal-skin
sacrjue next winter.
A Varied Performance.

thinking it essence of ginger, when in
fact it is made from many valuable
