The Old Bone Mao.
A curious character resided near nu
Inland city of New York state. He was
known by everybody as " the old" bone
man, " but I never heard his real name.
He wag a German, and employed aevural
men and teams In the pursuit of hl
business, which was to gather up the
carcasnes of dead animals In a circuit of
ten miles or more. These he took to his
establishment, which was located in a
lonely swamp a few miles out of town.
Here ho prepared the different portions
of the carcasses for market. The hi h;s
went to the tanners, the short hair to
the plasterers, the long hair to furniture
makers, the fat to soap factories, the
bones to fertilizer manufacturers, the
hoofs to glue makers, the lean flesh was
cooked and fed to his fowls and the
refuse was used to enrich his own land
and he became famous for growing ex
cellent cabbages and making fine saner
kraut. He cleared that swamp and made
it blossom like a rose by cheap German
labor which he Imported on contract,
paid their passage and kept them until
they learned the Kngllsh language and
Vank.ee ways sufficiently to command
better wages elsewhere. His fowls were fat
and plump and his eggs numerous, and
they found ready market in the adjacent
After a while it was noised about that

An investigation was made, the fuot
proven and the city authorities prohibited
him from selling any more of ills eggs
and dressed poultry within the city limits.
When the facts were made public dressed
poultry, eggs and sauerkraut generally
" took a tumble," people fearing that Homo
of the " bone man's " products might be
smuggled Into tiie general lot. Home
people with delicate stomachs could not,
thenceforth, relish any of these products,

-When freshly sliced fruit is sulphured
tot 4 "short time, gas penetrates only
" skin deep;" and when the fruit Is uf tor
ward dried, whether In the sun or drier,
most of the gus escape and few persons
would note the difference in taste pro
duced thereby. Insects, iioverlliuliMS, are
to a very material extent deterred from
touching such fruit.
Hut when the latter Is dried and thou
thoroughly sulphured, as is too commonly
done, the effect Is much more serious.
The gas then peuotrutes the entire spongy
muss, bleuching It, so that careleSKly
dried fruit, too dark to be marketable,
can thus be made to appear more or less
inviting to the eyt. Not, however, to
the nostrils or to the taste, for with the
color, the llavor lius also sulTcrud corre

of such fruit, instead of the nuturu
aroma, there appears the llavor familiar
to those wlio visit a chemical laboratory
or acid manufactory.
The consumer then has reason to ob
ject to dry-sulphured fruit on two counts,
either of which is sufficient to condemn
the practice. One is that dirty, lll-proparcd
or damaged fruit may thus be Imposed
upon him for good quality; the oilier-,
that the na ural lluvor of the fruit is
either seriously Impaired or sometimes
almost completely destroyed, ami its
uuldity greatly iucreas"d.
There is another and very serious count
In the Indictment, namely, that such fruit
is unhealthy because containing an anti
septic that impedes digestion, and while
the fruit is relatively fresh, causes hed

The Forum for April says: "There is
nothing i.. the declaration or In the con
stitution of the United States to indicate
that women were to be excluded from
participating in the affairs of government.
When the Constitution was formed, suf
frage was limited to males in the constitu
tions of all the states but one ; yet, with
these examploe before them, the framers
of the federal constitution omit all refer
ence to the sex of the federal electors, and
vest the right on 'the people of the
several states,' neither men nor women,
us such, being alluded to. This omission
could not have been accidental. Mani
festly, if It had been tho intention to
limit federal suffrage to males that Inten
tion would have been expressed. As
women constitute one-hnif the 'peoplo'
will it be pretended they have no In
terest In a government of the people? The
ballot alone gives expression to that In
tent. Every man who casts a vote for a
member of congress, derives ids right to
do so from this clause of the (onstitu
tion, and yet the cl use has no reference
to the sex of the voter. His right is
based on the fact that he Is one ot the
peoplo. He can Bhow no othor title to
his franchise, and woman occupies ex
actly tho same position. Beyond all con
troversy, it is now fettled that women
are citizens. The 'ourtocnth amendment
declares that 'all persons born or
naturalized in tho Unl ed States and
subject to the Jurisdiction thereof are
citizens of the United States, and of the
state wherein they reside,' wlillo the
supreme court in the minor case ex
pressly affirms that women are citizens.

court derides that the right to vote for
nioinlxus of congress is based upon the
coiistltutio'i of the United States.' Men
unci women constitute the people. Men
and women, therefore, are federal electors.
The right Hint exists fin one citizen, ex
ists fur till. To deny women, therefore, the

to deny to citizens of the United States a
constitutional right. -

"How many lessons have you given
him," asked the reporter.
"Only one. but he can say several
things already and lie is real bright.
You see there is a little primer book
that we use that is written partly iu
Knglish and partly iu Chinese just
like one of those horrid Latin books,
you know. First there is a line at the

glish words, you know, and opposite
these are the same words in Chinese.
Down below, at the bottom of the page,
there is a little story that brings in
these words and so he learns. He is
very eager to iearn, but he can not
pronounce some of the words, for he
has trouble with his 'r,' which he will
persist in calling an '1.' I can't break
liini of the habit. I said lie was bright,
didn't I? Well, lie is in some tliiujis,
but he was so stupid lust Sunday. The
word 'hand' was in the copy and I
wanted to illustrate its use to him, and
so 1 just stretched out my hand and
said: 'My hand.' What does the
stupid do but reach over and take my
hand and say, '.My hand.' Of course,
he did not mean to be rude, but it
sounded so presumptuous that it made
me mud for a minute. But the more I
tried to show iiiiu his error the mure
he persisted in saying that my hand

An Anecdote of Hani Houston.
Houston was beaten for the Senate
by Louis Wigfall, who cut such a
brilliant and yet Inefficient figure at
the outbreak of the war. Old Sam
Houston wa9 asked what kiud of a
person this Mr. Wigfall was who had
succeeded to his place. Houston said:
"Gentlemen, 1 know him well; he is
the most eloquent, brilliant d fool
in all Texas."
When Houston had beeu beateu by
Wigfall it occurred to Ivorsou, of
Georgia, who was not much of a mau.to
get up in the Senate and lacerate the
old hero. He called attention to tho
fact that Houston had been repudiated
by the people of his State, aud said he
doped tdat would be the fate of all meu
who were traitors to the South. .
The Senate thought nothing of Iver
son, and everybody was curious to
know what Houston would say. The
old man sat there whittling a piece of
wood with a knife. He was six feet
live inches high, held himself very
erect, was a remarkable actor; and al
ways impressive wl,en he desired to
be. Hardly anybody looked at Iver
son, for his' speech was felt to be in the
light of an attack upon human nature.
Sam Houston, the hero of Texas, the
former Governor of Tennessee, was
down, and this little fellow misappre
hended he had a chance to injure dim,
After Iverson concluded, Houston
sat still a while till he concentrated
upon himself the attention of the Sen
ate. He then rose, and, in a common
place way, referred to his defeat. "It
is true, gentlemen, that I am politically
dead. There appears to be no breath
in my life, as far as the public service
is coucerned, hereafter. The condem
nation of me at the polls has been
condign. I did not think, however,
that after my defeat the State of Geor
gia would be the one to come aud
taunt me with my disaster."
He.e he changed his manner from
the simple to the impressive, and there
began to be sensibilities stirred up in
every one around the Senate as he
continued: "Not the State of Georgia
should have thought it necessary to at
tack me upon this floor," said Hous
ton, "for when I was a boy I shed my
blood in Georgia for the people of that
State when the tomahawk and the
scalpiug-knife were raised agaiust
them. At such a battle whicli he
named 1 was left among the slain, as
it was supp ised, and I always thought
that Georgia at least would have some
respect for my memory. But, gentle
men, this is not the first time that a

The Age of Tree.
From an article bv Professor F. W.
Putnam, on "Prehistoric Remains in
the Ohio Valley," in the Century, we
quote the following: "Of late years
several writers have brought forward
many arguments showing anew, what
every archaeologist of experience
knows, that many of the mounds in the
country were made by the historio
tribes. This has been dwelt upon to
such an extent as to make common the
belief that all the mounds and earth
works are of recent origin. Some
writers even go so far as to imnly that
tree growth cannot be relied upon,
and state that the rings of growth do
not represent annual rings. As I am
firmly couviuced that many of the
mounds and earthworks ia the Ohio
Valley examined by Dr. Metz and my
self are far older than the forest grow th
in Ohio can possibly indicate, it mat
ters little about the age of trees grow
ing over such mouuds. However, as
such a forest growth gives us the mini
mum age of these ancient works, it is
important to know what reliance can
be placed on the rings. In his report
for 1887, Prof. B. E. Fernow, Chief of
the Division of Forestry in the United
States Department of Agriculture, dis
cusses the formation of the annual
ring, when speaking of tree growth.
In a letter recently received from him,
in which he points out the probable
cati9e of error in counting the rings of
prairie-grown trees, he stall's that he
considers 'anybody and everybody an
incompetent observer of tree growth
who would declare that, in the tem
perate zones, the annual ring is not the
rule, its omission or duplication the ex
ception.1 "Having received repeated assur
ances to this effect from other botan
ists, I recently again asked the ques
tion of Prof. C. S. Sargent, Director of
the Arnold Arboretum, from whom I
received the following reply: 'I have
never seen anything to chango my be
lief that In trees growing outside of the
topics each layer of growth represents
the growth of one year; aud as far as 1
have been able to verify statements tn
the contrary, which have appeared of
late years, I am unable to place any
credence in any of them. The follow
ing sentence, quoted from the last edi
tion of Professor Gray's "Strnotui-.il
Botany." covers the case: 'Each later
being the product of only a year's
growth, the age of an exogenous t re
may in general be correctly estimate I
bv "counting the rings of a cross section

vou are perfectly safe in tbiuking that

A charming pen-picture of Nikita,
"the miniature l'alti." comes to us
from Glasgow, Scotland, says Jivinormfi
Magazine, where this wonderfully gifted
young songstress appeared recently:
"All eyes arc expectantly tixed on the
platform, and there she comes.a j oyng,
slender girl, bow ing to the audience iu
a most bewitching way. She is simply
dressed iu white, her long, wavy hair
tied back with a white ribbon, and, as
she opens her lips, w e hear a sweet,
rippling stream of purest melody, gath
ering strength and depth as it llows,
till it carries us away in a torrent oi
wild enthusiasm. It is a German song
with a wonderful echo in it, and we
seem to be among the mountains, hear
ing the birds sing.aiid the Alpine horns
answering to each other from the
heights. 'It is simply marvelous, aud
marvelously beautiful. There seems
no cffort.and there is no Haw or failure
in the echo. It sounds far, far away,
and yet there is the fair girl singing
before us. For a farewell she gives us
a birdsoug. The voice is like a lark
and a lintie, a mavis and a blackbird,
and now again like a nightingale. In
deed, it is like a grove full of birds on
a spring morning; but the woods are
soon silent, and it is autumn, and the
birds are away. Nikita has gone."
And the possessor of this marvelous
voice is only in her 17th year, and is I
stanch little American, whom we may
bope soon to hear in her native land.
