fact, it d
place cfthe cloyen-footed creatures
among the milk-givers of the sea. In
general appearance the Arctic sea cow
"was a stupendous spectacle, attaining
"when full grown a length of thirty-five
leet and a weight of several tons. The
general color was a dark brown; the
ekin thick and leathery, covered with a
thick, bristling hair that matted to
gether, forming a protection from the
ice and cold, and was compared ' in ap
pearance to the bark of a tree. The
head of the sea cow was small in propor
tion to the animal's size, and, instead of
possessing teeth, was provided with two
curious masticating plates one in the
gum, and the other in the under jaw.
The tail somewhat resembled that of
a whale, having two flukes. The
fore fins or paddles were blunt
and without nails, having instead a thick
growth of bristling hairs. Such was the
general appearance of the animals that
when first discovered were pasturing in
vast herds among the seaweed of the
shore. They showed no fear of the men,
even allowing themselves to be touched
by them ; but when one was injured it is
said that they displayed much bravery in
its defence. Such was the state of things
in the year 1742. At this time a vessel
was wrecked in the Arctic sea, the crew
escaping and making their way to Beh
ring island. For some time they sub
sisted upon fish and birds, but finally the
f ame became scarce, and on the first of
une, in the year mentioned, they began
a warfare upon the sea cow thath as
since been named after Steller, one of the
party. The animals were killed with
harpoons, and each was so large that
forty men could scarcely drag it through
The men were finally rescued from
Behring island, but in 1754 a vessel com
manded by a Russian. Ivan Krassilnikoff,
arrived there, and destroyed large num
bers of the animals. In the succeeding
year an explorer named Jackooley, see
ing that they- were about to become ex
terminated, laid a petition before the
authorities at Kamchatka asking tiat
the animals be protected by law.
lie was not heeded, however,
and in 1757 another expedition
landed at the islands, and others in 1758
and 1762, and until 1780, when the last
living sea cow was seen by a native of
Volhynia. Thus in tkirty-eight years
from the time these monstrous animals
were discovered they were totally exter
minated, and to-day not a single skin,
and only a number of skeletons, remain
in the possession of naturalists to tell the
Btory of the destruction of an entire race
of large and powerful beasts. Much in
teresting information concerning the
Rhytina was obtained during the recent
Swedish expedition to the north, and
Professor Nordenskiold found numbers
of deposits of their bones that are now
utilized by the natives for various pur
poses, the ribs being used for shoeing
the runners of sledges. When alive, the
fur or hide of the animal was made by
the natives into boats called baydars.
It is supposed by some writers that the
extermination of the great mammoth was
hastened by early man, who was of ne?
cessity a hunter, and that the great ele
phant existed at thS same time with our
ancestors is shown by the fact that in
France their bones, together with those
of man and many animals now extinct,
have been found. As late as 1834, Nut
tall, the famous authority on birds, wrote
concerning the great auk :
As a diver he i9 unrivalled, having al
most the velocity of birds in the air.
They Dreed in the Faroe Islands, and in
Iceland, Greenland, and Newfoundland,
nesting among the cliffs, and laying but
one egg each. . They are so unpiolific
that it this egg be destroyed, no other is
laid during that season. The auk is
known sometimes to breed in the isle of
St. Kilda, and in Papa "Westra, accord
ing to Mr. Bullock, for several years past
no more than a single pair had made their
To-day not a single individual of this
species of aud is alive, and the skin in
the museum of natural" history in Cen
tral park, that is valued at over one
thousand dollars, one at Vassar college,
and several others, probably not over
twelve in all, are the only specimens
known in the world. Sixty or one hun
dred years ago they were extremely com
mon along the northern coast, coming as
far south as Nahant; but warfare was
begun upon them also, and, though it
hardly seems possible, their extermina
tion is undoubtedly complete, the last
living bird having been killed in 1844 on
a group of islands called Funglasker, on
the southwest coast of Iceland. In the
last century these birds, which were
large, handsome, and striking in appear
ance, were very common at the Faroe
Islands. They were found to be good
eating, and were slaughtered by the boat
loadnot only for immediate use, but to
preserve or dry. They were finally driven
to a desolate'rock that was considered in-
accessible,but on acalm day a Faroese ves
sel succeeded in landing, and the crew
destroyed nearly the entire rookery. A
few escaped to sea and returned after the
departure of the men. and were for a
time unmolested, but as if nature herself
was in league against them, the rock was
in a few years engulfed by submarine
eruption. The few remaining great auks
assembled and lormed a rookery on a
rock called Eldey, where for fourteen
years they lived a precarious existence,
During this time sixty of their nu
were captured, and finally the las'

Farm Animals 'and Farm Labor.
From a report upon the numbers and
values of farm animals in the United
States and the wages of farm laborers,
made by the statistician . of the agricul
tural department, it appears that the
whole number of farm animals in the
country has increased since February,
1883,. by about 1,000,000, as follows:
Stock. 1883. 1884. Increase.
Horses 10,838,111 11,169,683 331,572
Mules 1,871,079 1,914,136 43,047
Milch cows. 13, 125,685 13,501,206 375,521
Oxen & oth
er cattle..28,046,077 23,046,101 1,000,024
Sheep 49,237,291 50,62(5,620 1,380,335
Swine 43,270,088 44,200,893 930,807
The largest increase is in stock cattle,
and is principally in the States west of the
Mississippi. There has been an increase
in the value of horses, mules and all kinds
of cattle, with a considerable decline in
the price of swine and a small falling off
in the values of sheep. The comparison
of average values with those of last year
is as follows :
Stock. ' 1883. 1884
Horses 70 59 $74 64
Mu!es . 79 49 84 22
Milch cows 30 21 31 37
Oxen and other cattle 21 80 23 52
Sheep 2 53 2 37
Swine 6 75 5 57
" In that part of .the report which deals
with the wages of farm labor, Mr. Dodge
submitted statistics to show that both
the value of farms and the wages of ag
ricultural labor are greatest in those
States where industries are most diversi
fied. In the manufacturing States of
Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecti
cut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsyl
vania and Delaware, where only eighteen
per cent, of all laborers are engaged in
agriculture, each of those laborers earns
$457 per annum, and the average value
of land is $47.34 per acre. In the agri
cultural States, on the other hand, where
seventy-seven per cent, of the laboiers
are engaged in farming, the wages of
such laborers are only $160 per annum,
and the average value of farm lands only
$20.81 per acre.
"In every State," Mr. Dodge says.
"Jthe rate of wages is affected favorably
by the presence of. manufactures, what
ever other causes or difference may pre
vail. The presence of other industries
gives more production per capita, while
home markets make higher prices. Con
tact of industrial ideas and prevalence of
mechanical skill also tend to labor-sav
ing ingenuity and manual dexterity in
the work of agriculture. Ihe wages of
the farm laborer (including board) now
range from $13-67 per month in the
States where agriculture occupies seventy-
seven per cent, of the laboring popula
tion, to $24.14 per month in the States
where only eighteen per cent, of all la
borers are engaged in agricultural pur
suits, ine average oi me wnoie united
States is $18.58 per month, an increase
of nearly forty per cent, since 1854."
An Example for Us.
The evil from which France suffered
in the seventeenth century our country is
enduring to-day, and it will require
prompt measures to correct it. Our ap
parently limitless territory, studded over
with forests, has made us profligate even
to wastefulness, and we have been in
danger of entirely destroying the greatest
of our heritages.
In Prussia and Germany the laws re
lating to forestry exhibit the wisest fore
thought on the part of the government,
and the people sustain it in every effort
to preserve what other generations had
well-nigh deprived them of. These na
tions set us an example which it would
be wise to consider. Their laws have
given rise to a large system of tree-plant
ing, thinning and preserving, and also to
an enormous literature regarding arbori
culture and cognate subjects. Millions
of trees are annually set out, examined
and transplanted, and great rainfalls and
droughts are obviated, while malaria
from both causes is greatly diminished.
The ill results of the old, denuding pro
cess are rapidly disappearing, showing
that Nature's capillary clothing must be
respected, for utilitarian as well as sen
In the United States the general fash
ion of extravagance prevailing in respect
to forests is largely due to ignorance.
Only lately has the scientific man im
pressed upen him of average intelligence
the necessity of tree preservation, and
the desirability of using other materials
than lumber for many purposes in which
wood was formerly considered indispen
sable. The wakening anxiety in regard
to forestry culminated, a little more than
a year ago, in the formation of what was
denominated a forestry congress, of
which Professor Loring, of the agricul
tural department, was elected chairman.
Following their interesting sessions were
the dissemination of much information
in regard to arboriculture in the United
States, and the inception of village and
country societies for the purpose of tree-

A Model Royal Housekeeper '
According to M. Victor Tissot, the
queen of Saxony is a model housekeeper.
She excels in the making of jam, and all
the cupboards in the palace are full of
confections prepared by her own hands;
but unfortunately there are no children
there to eat them. In the autumn she
spends days together in the kitchen,
vested in a cook's apron, making pre
serves. Like the wife of the Vicar of
Wakefield, " for pickling, preserving, anc
cookery, none can excel her." The queen,
is of a frugal turn of mind, keeps her
own household accounts, which she,
balances every day, and- will not suffer
even that two candles should burn where
one will suffice.
Gowns and Frocks
By the way, the fashionable- name for
ladies' dresses is' now "gown" or
"frock." "Worth no longer fabricates,
dresses, but frocks and gowns, and the

Bridemsids, as well as the bride, now
wear veils. Illusion embroidered in a
polka-dot design in silks is the favorite
material for bridemaids' veils. Lace,
whether it is particularly fine or not, is
now preferred to tulle or illusion by the
majority of brides.
It is generally predicted that long
mantles will continue in favor, and for
young girls who have hitherto exclusively
worn jackets and short wrappings. The
transformation of the wrapping into a
dress brings with it the combination of
plain and figured stuffs.
Gloves of dark shades are worn in the
day-time and frequently over the sleeves,
but with evening toilets, tan, pale yellow,
pearl gray, and even white gloves are1
worn. They reach the elbow if the
sleeves are demi-long, and above the
elbow with short sleeves.
Some new fabrics have been brought
out in Paris for evening and visiting
toilets. Among them is "taffetas chan
tilly." The ground of the goods is in
such colors as pink, seal, green and cardi

On party dresses showers of single blos
soms now take the place of large sprays
and festoons of flowers, and these are
sown all over the upper skirt, sometimes
hanging by their stalks with excellent
effect. Such flowers are used as daisies,
buttercups, forget-me-nots, blue-bells
and tiny rosebuds.
Green is a most popular color for spring
wear, many of the new cloths, velvets
and other fabrics being in the various
shades of that hue. An elecrant imported
visiting toilet is composed of a rich, dee
6hade of green velvet, combined wita
a new light tone ' of green and trimmed
with golden-tinted fox fur.

THE MINISTER WHO FAILS to interest his congrega
tion and build up his church is generally accused of being a poor preacher,
or of not studying hard enough. That is not always where the trouble
comes from. Dyspepsia' and liver disorders are responsible for many a
dull sermon and many a vacant pulpit. When the Dominie's digestive
apparatus is working wrong and his nerves are giving him pain, and his
brain refuses to do its duty, it is almost impossible to make or to preach a
good sermon. Give your suffering minister a bottle of Brown's Iron Bit
ters. You will see its effect on next Sunday's preaching.' The Rev. Mr.
Zehring, of Codorus, Pa., was paralyzed, and could, not walk except with
crutches, until Brown's Iron Bitters made a new man of him. The Rev.
Mr. White, of Rock Hill, S. C, says: "It restored me to strength and vi
