LUCY C. YOUNG.
Astoria, Oregon, September 2d, 18S5.
Healthful Cllmato trhcro Truit and
It may not be uninteresting at this
time to know that Central America
comprises an area somewhat larger
than the states of Missouri, Illinois
and Indiana, Nicaragua alono being
about as large as Illinois. The popu
lation is verv sparse. Guatemala has
1,252,000; San Salvador, 554,000;
Nicaraguan, 275,000 ; Honduras, 350,
000; Costa Rica, 185,000; Panama,
220,000. The soil is capable of sup
porting ten times this population. Tlio
larger portion of the country is forest,
the trees being chiefly mahogany,
logwood, brazil-wood, live oak, fustic
pine, copal-wood, cedar, rosewood,
and ironwood. The forests are bril
liant with those gorgeous air-flowers,
the orchids, and are alive with
monkeys. The agricultural products
are beans, grain and fruits bananas,
cocoanuts, oranges,plantains, lemons,
guavas, pineapples, citrons and limes,
liananas and cocoanuts are easily
raised and the yield is enormous.
The steamers that ply between Cen
tral American points and New Or
leans usually bring in as cargoes 100,
000 cocoanuts and 25,000 bunches of
bananas, which pass through all the
hands of Italian and Sicilian fruit mer
chants in the Crescent city and go to
all the Western States. All the
bananas and cocoanuts in our Wes
tern markets come from Central
America. A few Americans are en
gaged in fruit-raising in Honduras
and find it profitable. The coffee
tree thrives in all tho Central Amer
ican states, and ginger, annatto,
vanilla, aloes, gums, caoutchouc,
copaiba, and other valuable articles
of commerce are produced. Tho
country abounds in gold, silver and
copper, but the deposits are not
worked by the lazy natives, who are
content to lead a languid oxistence
without attempting to develop the
wealth in their soil and forests. The
climate is warm and unhealthful on
the coast, but on the highlands in the
interior temperate and salubrious;
and that it is not altogether unfavor
able to enterprise is proved by tho
vast ruins of cities and temples, the
work of a civilized and cultivated
people now extinct, at Coban and
other places in Guatemala and Hon
duras. Cattle are one of the products
of the country ; they are raised with
out trouble or expense, as the' sub
sist on the wild grass, and they are
slaughtered chiefly for their hides,
which are shipped to Europe. Guate
mala aud Honduras have exhibited
some signs of waking up in the last
five years. Three railroads have been
built and others projected, and grants
of lands on very favorable terms are
offered to all who will come and set
tle on them. A few thousand North
Americans would bring the country
to life and make it one of the most
attractive parts of the western world.
A Course of Reading.
It is to be doubted if any person of
any intellectual force and "originality
would ever bo able to get through
what is popularly known as "a course
of reading," and it is at least certain
that few germs of genuine mental life
could be expected to survive the or
deal if passed through. The instant
the mind is genuinely aroused and
interested, the trammels of tho book
list are overleapt; and it is only
mechanically plodding mediocrity
that trudges faithfully and stupidly
along a line of thought somo one else
has marked out. In the first place,
it is worse than useless to read wat
one docs not enjoy. The mind not
only does not digest it and does not
assimilate it, hut becomes dull and
deadened by the mechanical process
of cramming which it ia made to un
dergo, until it ceases to be capable
of digesting anything normally and
Advice in regard to a "course of
reading" if the detestablo phrase
may be forgiven may bo asked and
given with results that are excellent,
provided always that tho reader recog
nizes that if the course marked out
fails to so arouse and excite him that
he breaks away from it of his own
volition, it is a failure and had better
bo abandoned. The most that others
can do is to indicate whoro a begin
ning is to be made, but from the
starting point the lines of work must
diverge with the variet' arising from
original impulse, or all comes to
nothing. The rubbishyltalk of which
we hear so much nowadays of courses
of reading iaid out by tho Home
Education society, the ChaCauqua
union, or any of the rest of these
well-intended and equally unintel
lectual contrivances for the" mechani
cal development of the intellect, is
one of the most annoying as it ia one
of the most pathetic of the signs of
ItiB pathetic because the preva
lence of talk of this sort shows how
widespread is tho desire evon if sel
dom of very profound depth for
culture and mental development; it
is annoying because it is painful to
see eager ignoranco put off with a
stono when it asks for bread; and
encouraged in precisely the most per
nicious of misconceptions, the idea
that culture, like gingerbread, is
made by a, recipe. Superfictolfty is
the besetting sin of tho age, and one
of its innumerable symptoms is the
prevalence of this absurd idjea of the
value and desirableness of courses of

Shaken up by an Earthquake.
An officer said he had permission
to spend the Christmas holidays with
his family at Alhama, and had a few
friends to dinner. After dinner the
friends left and ho sat talking with
his wife and children, five in number,
when suddenly one end of tho room
rose up three feet. Tho shock threw
the wholo family to the floor, with
the lamps and other articles on the
tables and shelves. They remained
in total darkness, dazed and wonder
ing what had happened. Presently
ho supposed it was an earthquake,
and called to his wife and children to
come out into the street. -He reached
tho street door and the street was in
total darkness. Tho air was filled
with the dust of crumbling buildings.
Afraid to go out he stood shivering
and undecided, when a second shock
came and tho kitchen fell in, killing
two servants. A piece of wood fell
upon his wife, breaking her leg. He
then carried Bis wife out over a pile,
of ruins. ' The narrow, dark streets
were so clianged by the debris that it
was hard to recognize them. Ho
reached tho open fields, where he
found that many had preceded him..
He left hij wife with friends and re-'
turned forhis children. He brought
three the next trip, and then the
other two. All tho way, while crawl
ing over piles of ruins "he heard the
cries of tliose that had been caught
and could not extricate themselves.
Every voico was familiar. He met
neighbors telling each other of the
loss of relatives and friends. The
horror of such an experience was un
paralleled. The night was spent in
the open fields, shivering on tho
ground, entertaining fears and suf
fering grief, terror and a horrid un
certainty. 'She Stoops to Conquer.
Mr. Lewi3 Grummit, formerly an
eminent grazier in Lincolnshiredied
in that county at a very advanced
age. It was from a hospital joke of
this worthy man, that Dr. Goldsmith
took tho hint of Marlow's mistaking
the house of Mr. Hardcastle for an
inn, in the comedy of "She Stoops to
Conquer." The circumstances was
Mr. Grummit, late one night, met
a commercial traveler, who had mis
taken the road, and inquired the way
to the nearest inn or public house.
Mr. G. replied, that, as he was a
stranger, he would show him the way
to a quiet, respectable house of pub
lic entertainment for man and horse,
and took him to his own residence.
Tho traveler, by the perfect ease and
confidence of his manner, showed the
success of his host's stratagem, and
everything that he called for was in
stantly provided for himself and his
horse. In the morning he called, in
an authoritative tone, for his bill, and
the hospitable landlord had all the
recompense he desired in the surprise
and altered manners of his guest.
Many other whimsical acts of kind
ness are related of him.
Rossini, the composer, used to set
to work at ten o'clock in the morn
ing, having risen at nine. His toilet
took half an hour, and his breakfast,
house-gossip, etc., another half-hour;
then ho took his pen and wrote con
tinually. From ten to twolve, while
ho wrote, numbers of people came,
some with letters of introduction, or
old friends, and so on. He was very
glad to mako the acquaintance of
talented young artists; he received
them with immense kindness, giving"
them advice and sometimes letters.
But what he absolutely hated was to
be stared at as one of tho sights of
Paris. Once his old friend, Caraffa,.'
came and told Lim, "There is a Rus
sian princess on the Boulevard who
waited two hours yesterday to see
you pass ; she wants much to make
your acquaintance What shall I
tell her?" "Tell her," said Rossini,
"that I am excessivoly fond of aspar
agus. She need only go to Hotel et
Chabot and buy tho finest bunch bIio
can get, and bring it here. I shall
then get up, and, after she has well
inspected me in front, I shall turn
round, and she can complete her in
spection bjT taking the other view too,
and then she may go."
Pipe Line on the Eesert.
The English army is engaged in construct
ing a water pipe line from Suakim on the
Red Sea, 22) miles across ihc desert to Ber
ber on the river 2s' lie. litis is a long conduit.

it will be discussed at firesides around the

Yet the contents of this Castoria line are
sucked dry 3 early and by children alone.
Such an illustration help3 convey an idea of
the populaiity aud the immense trade in
tills wonderful preparation which filters In-
Jto so many homes. Mothers whoso days

which prempUy brings health ami rest. To

A Livery for tho Nurse Girl.
It has of late been tho fashion in
France to have nurse girls attired in
some of the peculiar costumes of
foreign nations. The fashion, how
ever, was costly, and in many cases
unsatisfactory, so there has been a
return to the old style, with tho long
cloak and tho cap trimmed with rib
bon. A distinction is made in wealthy
families by using very wido light col
ors, and the ribbons arc very wide
and reach to the lower part of the
dres3. The loop3 on the caps are
fashioned like wroaths, only instead
of being, as heretofore, ordinary loops
they are arranged in hollow plate?
and fastenod flat to the crown, while
the long, wide ribbon ends fall down
the back. Showy ornamental pins
are among the plaits of tho ribbon.
