We herewith show you a few styles of our Refrigerators, and this advertisement will continue but for a short time, it will be well for you to'make a note of this after reading, so that if you are not ready to purchase at once )ou will remember us when you are ready to look into the merits of the Peerless. You are well aware that it costs money to make honest goods, ard as long as ihe Hulchinson Manufacturing Company make Refrigerators they will be made that way, and if in course of time we find that our business is not appreciated we will discontinue to manufacture them, as we propose to make the best or none. So far our sales have been beyond our expectations, so much so that we are making a larger number now than at any previous time. Yoa will hear this Patent Refrigerator spoken of, and that wilh renoveable lining, etc., so as to be cleaned. Use common sense in constructing a Refrigerator, get a pure air circulation and let the impurieties be carried off in the waste water, and you will not have to keep your Refrigerator in the back alley* for tear that people will conclude on coming in the house that you have started a tannery on your premises. We have made several improvements to our Refrigerator this year, and expect to do so from time to time, as we feel confident that they are second to none, and for the benefit of some of our competitors making claims we still have confidence to offer the following on the Peerless: S> E?

They looked bo human with their gentle eyes, bo like other people, whether they talked Guzerhti or English, whether one saw them in the market place or ut a meet, that it wim dinieuh to believe this horror of them. Yet it wits true, for there were the facta and statistics in a little Iiund book in the reading room of the hotel, facta and statistics of yesterday and today and not of uny remote period of anti-civili/.ation. This as to time; and aa to place-not tiireo milen from where we Hat, on the topmost point of Malabar hill, an eminence whu-ii aiso bore the residence of Lord Reay. govenor of the Bombay presidency. We asked the hotel manager, who was u Tarsee, if ho had over visited the spot, lie shook his head and shrugged his shoulders just as an Englishman might have done talking of the churchyard or the family vaults. "ParseeB go only once," ho said, "and then they aru carried." But ho advised us to go; all tourists did, he said; and he knew the secretary, ho would get ub tickets. I ON inK HILL. So we arranged to drive the next morning very early, to see the Towers of Silence on Malabar hill, whither the Parsee living hear the Parsee dead, bidding them a mure utter farewell than is conceived by any other people of any other creed on earth. Two nutive soldiers stood in the queen's uniform at the gute, and looked at ua with surprise. It was late in the season and early in the day for people who wauted to see the century old sight they protected from the over curious. Louis went up to one of them with intrepidity and showed him our passes. lie shook his head and said something in Ilia own tongue. Neither of us understood it in the very leuat, 1 produced u phrase which I had carefully concocted on tho way from u "Handbook of liindustaueo" purchased in Calcutta, and which I intended to mean "Wo wish to see tho Towers of Silence." But the inuu only looked ut his fellow and grinned. 1 tried another phrase and yet another, but comprehension did not come. Then 1 reflected that perhups the language of the Baboo of Bengal was not necessarily that of the putive "Tommy" of Bombay, und later investigation proved this to bo the case. Finally one of the uiun pointed witli his guu to a uusall house ueur by, aud nodded bis head violently as Louis made as it she Would knock, So she knocked loudly aud presently then1 appeared, in bliuk-iDjjt undress, u very short, stout old Purine, who instantly retreated ugaiu. We then sat down beneath a mango true and waited events. The old Parsee was not long in reappearing, tall red cap uud eowu' ul,tl Bir-d|e und ull. In his hand he curried a large key, with which he beckoned to us to follow him. lie went up the "tops, unlocked the gute und let us. in. The road �tW ascended before.ua tbjouitU the ouisctrls of a tropical garuen, ana we climbed to another iron gate, which the old Parsee unlocked. There we atood iu tho dead calm of early rnorniDg, with tho yellow light in theeastern sky threatening every moment to break into flame, in a strange place. Flowers bloomed around us, those crimson and purple flowers of the tropics that are all sense and 110 soul. Bordered paths led iu different directions, neatly kept, and clumps of trees did their best to give the spot shadow and sentiment. We were not looking at the flowers, but at five strange, round, white structures that rose at a little distance, divided from us by a wall, in the midst of heavy masses of trees. The oldest of them had been there 200 years,-with never a profanation of its name or office-a tower of silence all that time. The others had been added as they were needed. They were not vaults and they were not cemeteries, yet their business was with the dead. BY ORDER OF ZOKOASTEH. They iirat arose 8,000 years ago by command of ZoroaBter, as you doubtless know, thus: The elements, said Zoroaster, are sacred as symbols of the deity, therefore should never be contaminated or detiled. Neither earth nor fire nor water should serve a Parsee after death had made him acorrupt thing. His body should be placed on a tower, high above all human habitations, that living men should not be polluted by it, and no foot enter there but those of its bearers, who should leave it and come away. And the towers of Zoroaster's thought, 3,000 years ago, were the towers with the latest sanitary improvements, that stood before us in the year of grace 1880, which gives one au idea of the real meaning of conservatism. We saw a model of the structures shown in the garden, and understood it with the help of the lmtel hand book. They are built of solid black granite, and covered wilh white cheenam. Inside is a circular platform divided into three shallow receptacles with footpaths between, the outer row for males, the next for femules and the inner for children. Three is the notable number of the followers of Zoroaster, reminding them always of the cardinal precepts of their religion-"good thoughts," "good words," "good deeds." Every Parsee wears u white woolen girdle of triple coil for its daily suggestion uud he carriea out the idea to the lost. Thefporpse bearers are a separate class, prepared by certain religious ceremonies, aud forced to live apart from the rest of the Pursue community because of the impurity which their olfico is supposed to coutract for them. in compensation the work is highly paid. They carry the body, swathed iu u sheet, to its receptacle, and lay it there without any clothing whatever. "Naked we comu into the world," said Zoroaster, "and naked we ought to leuve it." Then tho corpse beurers go away, und the vul- turv-j come, and in ten minutes there is a cluaii picked skeleton where they left .vhtt hud been a man or woman the duy L.fore. In u fortnight or so tho same bearers return, and gather up the bones with iron tongs, and throw them into a well iu the middle of the Tower of Si-leuue, which is their tinal resting place.

The picture has been quite recently discovered, and though tho final word has yet to be spoken by Ihe experts there is every reason to suppose that the portrait is by Sir Henry Kuebum. In a letter from the artist, written in 1808, he mentions having dispatched a portrait of Burns in a fishing smack from Lcith to London to a well known firm of picture dealers. Tho later history of the picture is not yet satisfactorily cleared up, but from internal evidence there is every reason to believo that the present picture is tho portrait alluded to in the letter. The coloring is rich and mellow in tone, and the figure stands out from the canvas with lifelike force and reality. The poet is painted seated in an arm chair, with one leg crossed over the other. There is much individuality about tho treatment of the figure and face, and it is curiously different from Nosmytli's portrait; but as the latter picture was done as an order from the publisher for a frontispieco to the poems, it may he supj>osed that the face was somewhat idealized. In this portrait the eyes are full of flro and the eyebrows (generally u marked feature in people of tho artistic temperament) are broadly defined and have a stamp of marked individuality. Tho forehead, ono of the most characteristic features in an intellectual face, is unfortunately almost hidden by the heavy block hair; the lower port of the face is somewhat coarse. It is difficult, wheu looking at this picture, to know how much to gather from the face itself, or how much we read into It from our knowledge of the character. Whether it prove to be the missing Kuebum or not, it is a decidedly fine piece of painting and a most suggestive portrait.-Murray's Magazine.
