HOPKINS FERNOLD, Wholesale and Retail Dealers in Furniture, Bedding, Austin, Minn. At a sociable gathering, a bucolic young lady asked what woman's sphere ment. sphere is .bounded on the north by a husband, on the south by a baby, on the east by a mother-in-law, and on the west by an old maid sister. Within this sphere any woman may find enough to do to keep her usefully em ployed all the days of her life and, should she prove faithful to her duties, she will be certain of reach- ing Heaven, at last, -which after all is the chief end of life. Why is a horse the most curious feed- er in the world Because he eats best when he has not a bit in his mouth. You who have suffered some groat loss, and stagger for want of strength to walk along: thank God fop work. Notb> ing like that for a feeble heart. How the Dead Prussian Soldiers are to be Identified. A Berlin letter in the London Tele- graph says Mark one iiistiinee of the German practical spirit as a proof fashion after vrhich these Teutons, pre- pare to fight. In recent wars populaf feeling has demanded that rank and file, captains and generals, Khali equally and impartially mentioned in the lifets of the but difficulties have arisen, because the enemy cannot know the dead men's tmines, and, when the muster roll is railed after brittle, the missing only or pris- oners. in her .solid, calm manner, arranjir-d, in vimv of tLis diffi' culty. that each wife and mother shall speedily know the Lost or the worst ot' those who go to fight with (Sod, for King, and Fuihcilund." Slips of parchment, like luggage labels, have been prepared, on which the name of each German boldier is plainly written, and one of these will be fkstencd inside his coat when he goes info action. Af- ter the day is decided; the enemy, if he be master oi' the fluid, will be rc- fjuested to collect and return these bcls, of which about a million have been provided, grim tickets an un- known journey Think of the Gormau wife or mother Hewing it battle ticket of her stake in the address, of htr particular "material of the awful traveling label whereon no loving hand may write, "with seeing that its bearer poes into the VaU ley of the Shadow, to coti.-e forth sgaitt or nut as heaven shall decree.

Curious Facts in Regard to Sound. The following curious observations in regard to the transmission of sound have been carefully verified by an extendedsc- ries of experiment. The whihtle of a locomotive is heard ,''..300 yards through tho air: the noise of a railroad 2.900 yards the report of a musket and the bark of a dog 1.000 yards; an orches- tra, or the roll of a drum. l.CUO yards the human reacho the distance of yards the croaking of frogs, 900 yards the chirping of crickets, 800 yards.

It has been ascertained (hut an echo is well reflected from the surface of smooth wa- ter only when the voice comes from an elevation. Other similar phenomena connected with the transmission of sounds have bron cbsorvcd. but die 'results, disagree, either from inaccuracy in the observa- tions, or from the nature of the circumstances nfffcting the numbers ob- tained, tuch variations occur to an extent of ton to twenty per cent., nnd even more. The weather's beinir cold and or warm and wet. and the chief influencing In the first case, the sound goes to a greater, and in the second, u a less distance. A Frenchman was to fight a duel with an American the condition.'! were that one shot should be exchngcd, and that the precedence f-hoitld go bv lot. The Frenchman got the first chance but failed to hit his As the Yankee lifted his weapon, the other cried out: ''Hold! I will buy your shot." All were astonshcd at this, but his opponent answered. How much will you give f" Five hundred dol- lars." cried the Yankee, taking aim at him. I am a sood marksman you set too low a value'up- ou yourself." You estimate me at too high a said the Frenchman. but I will give you one thousand dol- lars." cried the Yankee, and the duel was at an end. A gentleman of high position, in Lon- don, had a wife who was connected with many of the leading members of the no- bility. The other day she ran away with another man. and the injured hus- band adopted a different method of avenging his wrong from that which is sometimes pursued. lie merely adver- tized a reward of for the discovery of tho lady.

The report that a young man at Al- leghany, Pcnn., lost his speach by tho explosion of a fire-cracker, on the 4th of July, has bothered the euiinent doctors. They all went to writing about the dif- ferent organs of speech that must have been affected by the explosion, and now it turns out that it was a written speech that he lofat, which was in his pocket, and took lire from the fire-cracker.
