Xext to Independence Hall the j most interesting Historical uuiiumg Philadelphia is Christ Church on Sec ond street, above Market. Both sacred and national associations clus ter around this stately edifice, where lie the remains of John Penn, Rich ard Peters, Robert Asheton and many others, great men in their day, whose tombstones have been worn smooth by the feet of those who followed tliem and in their turn have passed away. The coach of "Washington, drawn by four dashing bays, used to draw up in front of this church on Sunday, and its stately owner to walk with dignified and reverent manner up the center aisle to the seat as signed for his use by the vestry. Ben jamin Franklin worshipped here,and for years was a member of the vestry. Robert Morris, the eminent financier of the Revolutionary period, was also a regular attendant. The first peal of the old "Liberty Bell," which an nounced the birtli of a nation, was joined by the sweet chimes of the bells in Christ Church tower. The venerable building is a fine and well-preserved specimen of the style of church architecture which appeared in London after the great fire, and is built of brick which were brought from the mother country. The original building, erected in 1G95, only twelve years after the founding of the city by Penn and during the reign of William III., was constructed partly of wood and partly of brick. Queen Anne presented the church with a communion service appro priatcly inscribed, which is still pre served. The church was enlarged in 1711 and Governor Sir William Keith, becoming one of the vestrymen, built a permanent Governor's pew in the church. The corner-stone of the pres ent building was laid with imposing ceremonies in 1727 by the Governor of the Province, the Mayor and Re corder of the city and the rector of the parish. WIIUI1E WHITFIELD PKEACIIED. The pulpit of this church was occu pied by the celebrated Whitfield, dur ing his visit to this country, the rec tor not being able to refuse the people who were so anxious to hear him. The chime of eight bells was brought from London in 1734. They were placed in the tower by Nicholas Nicholson, who cast them and ac companied them to this country, lie refused any compensation for his trouble on account of the attachment he felt for the work of his hands, sim ply asking that the bells should be muflled when he died. This request was religiously observed. The bells also rang out cheerful peals whenever the good ship Myrtella, which brought them from England, entered this port. Governor DeLancy, of New York, and Shirley, of Massachusetts, returning from th'e first Congress of Colonial Governors, at Alexandria, in 1755, were greeted with a merry peal of welcome from the bells. With in these hallowed walls assembled the first convention of clergymen held in the Colonies, on the 11th of May, 17G0. The Continental Congress appointed July 20, 1775, as a day of humiliation, fasting and prayer and attended Christ Church in a body. The spirit of liberty which found expression in the Declaration of Inde pendence was followed the same day by a decision of the staid vestrymen of the old. church, who requested the rector to omit from the Litany the petition for the health and safety of the King ef Great Britain. Congress attended in a body the funeral of William Henry Drayton, Chief Jus tice of South Carolina in 177G and afterward a delegate to Congress, who was buried from the church,with imposing ceremonies, in 1779. The history of the church is identified with the first organization and estab lishment of the Episcopal Church in the United States, for here in 1784 was held the first convention of the Diocese of Pennsj'lvania and those following for thirty years. During the period from 1790 to 1796, when the seat of government was located in Philadelphia, General Washington and his family occupied pews 54 and 56 and the seat specially used by the President was placed in Indepen dence Hall when the church was re novated in 1836. THE INTERIOR MODERNIZED. This renovation consisted in modern izing the interior of the church pave ment and covering with a floor the brick and the tombstones in the aisles, wliich were much worn. Funeral sol emnities were celebrated in honor of William Henry Harrison April 20, 1841. An immense civic and military procession formed in front of Indepen dence Hall and moved through the principal streets to Christ Church, where an eloquent discourse was preached by the Right Rev. Bishop Onderdonk." The work of restoring this old church as nearly as possible to its original condition was begun in 1882. Money was subscribed liberally by leading "citizens, who rejoiced to see this old landmark revived. The result was the resurrection of old slabs, whose inscriptions were pro nounced illegible in 1836. The orig inal pavement was almost wholly re covered, and, when wanting, tiling in harmony was laid. The original doorways were opened and the old staples found and replaced. To-day the pulpit stands where it did prior to 1769, with the old furniture re stored wherever it was possible to do so. From the founding of this church in 1695 to the present day, a period of 190 years, it has been under the charge of only eleven clercymen, bo ginning with Thomas Clayton and ending with the Rev. Edward A. Foggo, D. D., the present rector. f Philadelphia Times. The Coffee Tree. Now that beautiful leaved plants are so justly popular and insiich con stant request for drawing-room deco ration, it is surprising that the coiice tree of commerce (Coffea Arabira is not made use of. We see it now and then in nurserymen's greenhouses, but seldom anywhere else, and yet there are few evergreen shrubs more ornamental, and very few that are better adapted Jfor the adornment of the sitting-room. An average tem perature of 70 le. in summer and (",0 deir. in winter will be found quite sufficient, anil, if the plant is put in a warm corner of the room over Ihe kitchen fire on fruMy nights, no harm will come to it. The best soil for planting is a mix ture of peat and loam. The drainage must be thorough, the supply of water abundant, and the roots must have plenty of room. The coffee tree in a young state is well worth grow ing fbr its bright green glossy leaves, fragrant jessamine-like white blos soms, and berries changing from green to red. It is said that Megal ledin, a learned Mufti of Aden, be came acquainted with it during one of his African journeys. He took back some berries with him to Yemen and recommended the beveraire to his friends as an excellent method of keeping awake at prayers. Its use gradually spread to the Nile. Syria, Asia Minor and Turkey. Coffee was first sold in Constantinople in 1654. It was introduced into Europe by the Dutch in 1610, but did not reach this country till lt40. Arab coffee is chiefly grown in Yemen, where it was first planted in the neighborhood of Aden and Mocha. The plantations are usually made halt way up the hills. The Denies are not gathered, but cloths are spread under the trees for the fruit to fall upon when ripe. The coffee is mostly consumed in the country, the home demand being o great. There i not much exported, and that not the best. A good deal of what goes in the trade by the 11.11110 of Mocha coffee comes from Brazil and the West Indies. How Much Lumber Huo o Got. The stock of pine vet standing in. Michigan can produce 40,000,00i,000 feet of lumber, if cut for that pur pose. In eight years, therefore, at the late average production of the stale, the pine will have been used up. Hut such predictions have been made for years past. In 1S67, the standing pine of .Michigan was esti mated to lie 32,416,000,000 feet and it was predicted that it would be all cone in seventeen years. But since then the Saginaw vallev alone has produced' about 12,000,0"00,000 feet, and will continue to cut in the neigh borhood of 1,000,000,000 feet a year for Hi" eight or ten years to come. As pine grows scarcer, it will make more lumber than when it was plenty. But in predicting the end of pine lumbering, a person must take into account the timber which is yet standing in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Canada and the South. And it will be many years before it even grows scarce, when we estimate the whole. Yet an end must come to the forests that the white race found in this country. Doubtless pine forests of the second growth will be raised for future use, but the present magnifi cent forests will disappear. It has 'een estimated that the demand for nnber in this country from 1SS0 to .8!0 would require 210,000,000,000 feet, and one can readily see that at that. rate the stock must soon be gone. There is only about 55,000 000.000 feet of pine "in Canada, and that would go but a short way in sav ing the forests of the United States. That Dirty Dandruff. Dandruff is dirty and disagreeable in every way. It soils the clothing continually, and is accompanied by a hardly less annoying sensation of itching. The scalp is diseased. There is nothing in the world so thoroughly adapted to this trouble as Parker s Hair Balsam. It cleanses and heals the scalp, stops the falling hair and restores its originnl softness, gloss and color. Is not oily, highly perfumed,- au elegant dressing.

"We do not see why our Baptist brethren, in a recent case to which the Presbyterian alludes, should liav2 required a candidate for immersion to remove his wooden leg except 011 the principle which prevailed anions some of them in early days of immei sion in Encland, that absolute nudity was essential to the genuine effect of the ordinance, why should a wood en leg be more objectionable than any other extraneous substance es sential to propriety?"

In Russia, where in the middle classes the seclusion 61 women was even a few years ago nearly as great as in a harem, the advocate of women's rights would to-day find little to de mand for any class of females above the level of the peasantry. The mou jik still administers corporal chastise ment to his wife as he would to his child, and his right to do so, though denied by the written law, is tacitly acknowledged in practice. The girf, however, is nearly as independent as her male relations. Like her brother, and from similar causes, she, too. often becomes disgusted with her home, and determined to seek what she imagines to be the delights of the independent life led by the numerous female students who "follow various university courses, and particularly that of medicine. Sometimes, when her parents refuse her permission to leave home, she simply runs away, and having no passport her position becomes illegal, and she naturally finds her companions among those who, like herself, have cot into some trouble with the authorities. In some cases enthusiasts like Sol ovieff, who fired at the late czar in April, 1S79, marry girls with whom the have scarcely any acquaintance, and for whom they have no feelimis of affection, merely to free them from the obligation of obtaining a passport from their parents and their consent to leave home. The young husband and wife proceed together to the uni versity town, and there, having nn particular taste for each other's so- ciety, tney ouen separate immediate-1 ly, and even where they would de- sire to maintain their mutual connec- tion, the pressure of poverty and the uimcuuies ot tneir position frequent ly oblige them to part company. A luxury is said to be something which you don't want until you see somebody else with it. In that case St. Jacobs Oil ib not a luxury. You want it, not because somebody else has it, but because you know it will do you good. "llackmetuck," a lasting and fra grant perfume. Price 2j and 50 cents. Sold by W.E. Dement. MARKETS.
