TEA AND COFFEE AS RIVALS.
Coffee and tea are natural
allies but $ey are "also natural
rival. As ahinst alcoholic drink
ing' iu any Jfrin they aro'combined.
It is over lfj unoccupied territory'
after alcohJl has been driven awsiy
that the contention between the
two comes. Talcing the -world
through, the general verdict seems
to be in favor of tea. Two of the
largest empires in the. world
China and J tussia are tea drink -ois.
In Bokhara and Samarcand
and in most pat Is of eential
Asia, the tea-urn is foiever steam
ing. On the other hand, the
Arab and the Tin k and with them
the whole western part of the
Mohamedan world, are coffee
drinkers. The decision of Em ope
is not absolute for either side. "It
seems to be veiy much deter
mined by what we may call the
accidents of the case. Those
which can get both drink both.
England claims to be one of these,
but the preference of England is,
beyond all doubt, for tea, and not
for coffee. The unfair choice is
very largely compensated for in
the United States the chief
coffee-consuming country in the
world. Englishmen, too, would
probably make more use of coffee
than they do if they could be in
duced to overcome the initial
difficulties of having it prepared
as it ought to be. Tea can be
made easily enough. It may be
strong or weak, according to fancy;
it is tea in either case. The light
plan, we are assured, is to put
plenty of tea into the pot, then to
add a little more tea, and, that
done, to leave it to chance whether
the liquor comes out weak or
strong. But, whatever, wo may
think of weak tea, there is no
good word to be said for weak
coffee. Coffee must be very strong
if it deserve the name of coffee at
r is for generous natures. The lit
tle arts whjolr the frugal .house- i
keeper isestin making tea are not
to be thought of in making coffee.
There must be no economy in the
amount used, no filling up of the
pot, no making the same material
serve twice over. That tea should
ever be made like this is bad
enough, but there ma' be tastes so
depraved as to put up with it and
see nothing to object to about it.
The man has yet to be found who
can even make pretence of liking
weak coffee, diluted into ten
times its piopcr volume, and sis
deficient in fragrance as in
strength. London Times..

Lieutenant "White, of the Ameri
can service, in his "Voj'age to the
Chinese Seas," relates that, being
at the mouth ol the Cambodia, his
crew and himself were greatly
' astonished by hearing certain un
accountable sounds from beneath
and around the vessel. These were
various, like the bass notes of an
organ, the sound of bells, the
croaking of frogs, and a pervading
twang which the imagination
might have attributed to the vibra
tions of some enormous harp. For
a time the mysterious music swell
ed upon them, and finally formed
a universal chorus all round, di
minishing in strength and soon al
Humboldt was witness to a simi
lar occurrence in the South sea,but
without suspecting the cause. To
ward seven in the evening the
whole crew were astonished by
an extraordinary noise which re
sembled that of drums which were
beating in the air. It was at first
attributed to the breakers. Speed
ily it was heard in the vessel, and
especially toward the poop. It
was like a boiling, the noise of the
air which escapes from fluid in
ebullition. The sailors began to
fear there was sohie leak in the
vessel. It was heard unceasingly
in all parts of the vessel, and
finally, about nine o'clock,it ceased

Mrs. Green an American writer,

The sensibility of fishes to the

noticed for its love of music and

A short paragrapii in that paper
ol a late4 date is a crood argument
for those who wish to save some of
the valuable timber of the country.
The paragraph referred to was a
statement that the ship Syren had
loaded in the Puget Sound dis
trict with spars and ship plank for
use in Bath, Maine, at a cost of
15,000 for freight.
As I was born and lived near
and in Bath, 1 know whereof I
speak. Less than 100 years ago
theie was more mast and spar
timber within 20 miles of Bath
than would supply all the ships
now afloat. But for years the
people of that section thought, as
many people now think, that the
limber was inexhaustible, yet
within the memory of men now
living, the ship-builders are send
ing 20,000 miles for timber, that,
with reasonable economy, could
have been procured within 100 or
200 miles, to say the least, at a
cost of one-tenth of what they have
to pay. v ,

It lakes a large and valuable
tree to make a masi for a large
ship. Some years ago I visited
Bath, and while there measured
two masts, finished and ready to
set. They were SI feet long and
gii ted eight feet near the tnidd'n.
They had been cut in Michigan
and hauled by rail to Bath, nearly,
if not quite 3,000 miles, and yet
Sewcll, in his "Ancient Dominions
of Maine," says the American
revolution was nearly precipitated
at the very place, several 3'ears
prior to the fight at Lexington, be
cause the British government per
