A lung, stretch of' shell-strewn sand curving below high, sandy bluffs, down whose abrupt face a zigzag pathway descended from the plains above. I took no trouble to dismount. Cheve'gnac climbed like cat, and so I kept back as best t could during the descent. I bay, Half, you'll go over liis head if you keep on iu that said Ilerrics from tho bluff. Not I." A blip, tv slide, a, rush of yielding sand, and Cheveiguac taking things easy in a bitting posture.

Now, if there was any one thing for which Chcveignac had n- mania, it was salt water bathing: and I stood at that moment a fnir clianee of being well ducked Herries laughed and hallooed from the bluff, and I used all my au thority in vain. Cheveignac had not achieved a perfect training; he had his freaks if willfulness quite like the human beings of his acquaintance.

C'nre of tlifi Hands. Ladies who do their own housework are npt, if they do not wear globes, to have coarse hands. If thoy happen to dip them into water, they do not take enough time to dry them well before going on wi'.h their work. To wipe the hands perfectly dry after being itu mersed in water, is imperatively neces- sary, if they wish their hands to look white. To keep the bunds from chap- ping in cold weather, use a mixture of glycerine, one ounce, spermaceti, two drachms, olive oil, two ounces. Mix together wi'.b the aid of heat. Apply this every night, and, if time will admit of it, every morning. In winter, do not wash them in hot or cold water, it should bo blood warm, and no more or less. Do not go out of doois with them uncovered. In summer, use cold water, unless the hands perspire very much, as the hands of some people do. These latter should use tepid water. In warm weather, a good preparation for the handa is half nn ounce of powdered aluoi. and the whites of two eggs, and mix together. Then add enough to make into a thick paste. Applv (his once a day, after washing, and after rubbing thi1 hands together well for a few minutes, wipe off with a Eoft towel.

I reined up. apologized, and inquired if the stranger's name was Nixon for I saw not yards away a long, low cabin in the shelter of a huge rock. He said ic was, a-id, in one sharp, compre- hensive ghince of scrutiny, took us and our animals in from head to heel. Can you accommodate us with food and shelter to-night Nixon pauf-ed. You're from New he observed, more in the fashion of a remark than a question And he thrust his hands into his pock- ets and appeared to consider. Yes old said I, a bit puzzled at him. "So? Same Stato myself. Hain't it since I was knee-high to a grass- hopper. Wish I was there now but i don't knot's you can tie up with me." Why asked llerries and I togeth- er. Hospitality was tho prevailing virtue of his class. answered Nixon, signifi- cantly. Pooh, man Do we look as if we feared danger Give us some bacon und potatoes, and we'll face any reason- able danger that any man may, and live Supper, at least, if not Jest as you said Nison, in- differently. Ou'y remember I've warned and he led the way at a dog-trot along the beach. The bacon and potatoes wero forth- coming, and disappeared in a marvelous fashion before our savage onset While our host attended to our horses, we found leisure to look about us. The cabin was an unusually roomy OUR at least 18x20. The usual accoutertnents of a hunter and fisherman were placed about. There was evidence of a woman's presence and taste, but we had seen no woman. A kind of uncomfortable still- ness reigned, broken only by the cease- less r6ll of the surf. A single ray of light broadened and brightened througk the one window; it was the inoon rising. We conversed in whispers, won dur- ing what dagger menaced, and unde- cided whether to stay resume our journey. Lot's said Herries, last; I don't like the danger that strikes one in the dark. Let's go on io Hovey's, it's only five miles further down the coast, and the Calsaba fellow said it was all plain traveling." Of a sudden, with no sound in the sod sand, a black, bridled head and a brown and black nose appeared before the half-open door. With a hand on each, Nisort stood between them.

It is dial nearly live feet in diam- the aneroid kind, and is prom- j inently placed in the innrLtl house. The United States ha.-5 taken, the lead, and well in advance- in practical ue- tcorology. Ijy a recent order of theNnvy Department, the oflk-ors of government vessels are required to take part in the system of siuiultancotis observations of the weather throughout tha northern hemisphere; though we may soon have rivals, this nation will not soon fall be- hind iu the race. The French government takes pains to have the daily reports bear spucial reference to agriculture, giving warn- ings of storms to farmers. England is making improvements io the method of communicating weather signals. Photography is used there for obtaining fhe observations, but the re- sults would seem inaccurate and unsat- isfactory. British newspapers, regard- ing this as a popular subject, make dis- plays of weather paragraphs, with dia- grams Holland's exhibit of meteorological apparatus at Philadelphia last summer was unexceptionably fine. Since then, the Dutch Society of Science has of- fered through its secretary, Prof. Von Baumbauur, one of the Centennial a gold medal for the best essay upon between earth's meteorology and magnetism, and the spots on the sun. That such a connec- tion exists, is no longer u subject of contempt or questioning among scient- ists Last season was onn of the dryest and hottest ever known, and one of al- most entire, freedom from sun spots. From the interest awakened in this branch of science, great results may be expected. THOUGHTS ON is to solace tho wants, and not to nourish the pas- sions of men.

They should not take food aa medicine but as nourish- ment. They should have the very best things to cat they CUD get, and, fortu- nately, the best things are not always the most, expensive or difficult to ob- tain. If it agrees, a cup of cream may very appropriately be taken every day. by those who are inclined to consump- tion Brown bread and uiilk nnd creum. oatmeal und cream, eggs, with u moderate use of beef and mutton, good butter und mealy potatoes, will of ihem- selvis constitute a perfect diet. They should avoid nick-nacks and fancy food arid live on things substantial and nourishing. Fruits should bo in their Hcuson moderately. Consumption is a constitutional disease showing pov- erty of blood aud poverty of healthy tis- sue, arid this poverty must be eradicated It can be done partially by such fooda as are needed to build up a strong healthy body aivd carry on all its func- tions. Many physicians think (hat tlio disuse of fat is a cause of consumption and they prescribe cod-liver oil. not an a medicine, but as a food, and, in tnauy cases is has proved useful. We think, however, that it is the sedentary and unnatural life people lead that most to do in causing sd much sumption, and with that this sedentary life comes a feeble condition of body and brain favorable It1 the disease. A wise physical education, wholesome nourishment, would dissi- pate half the consumption in the world andtheothur half would soon bo ban- ished by some other means. Consump- tion is a disease to be avoided, nut Ilou't Whino.' There arc some natures to whotn whininc is a necessity. At home or abroad, wherever you meet them, you are Io Kc entertained by the r ever- lasting drawl of and a history of thtir personal wrongs umf grievances Now, what ii the use ofal! thin? It argues a weak and uncultivated niiud. Stronc men do not spread out their troubles promiscously before the world; they conquer their own. difficulties by steadfast reliance on (jod, and cxal'ed aim arid perseveriii-; effort. Besides, it is only the petty trials of life that admit of this- whining disposition. Sor- row- and griefs that sink deep into tho soul are too sacred to bo poured into every vulgar and curious ear. Sleri and women who are best fitted to cope with tha vicissitudes and straggles of human life. arejihose who stand firmly on H platform of a broad culture an3 experience, viewing the world as it is, aspiring to the higiiest, and yet to pity and resist the weaknesses and sins oi'its lowest objects. If tho fiist attempts in any cherished dircc'.i'in fails, wh.'re is use of uiving up and whining the unap- p.-eciaiiveness t.f the world. Keep trv- mg, and endeavor to make the next ef- forts mure worthy of success. Genius is like the soil she more it is w.irked the more it will produce. If one really possesses the germ, it will ihow itself, and success will couie when it is not powerful enough to make itself felt and success not based on a foundnticu of genuine merit, would be but a mock- ery. Should enemies do you injustice, and uiisr.present you before the wnrld, don't sit down to brood over and whine termination grasshoppers, in depositing about it; that would be proof either of their pgtrs, ore choice in delecting their nesting grounds. They choose hard, i clear spots, facing to the enst and south when obtainable The deposit is not general over a farm. Along roadsides, in beaten paths, unoccupied barn yards, in stock lots are favorite laying grounds To illustrate On my own farm of two hundred and twenty acres I am sure not to exceed two acres, were occupied in which to d'-posit eggs last fall. Ob- servation at this time, will enable tae farmer to know where to fight. After laying season, aud before the ground is frozen, harrow thoroughly. This destroys many eggs outright, and breaks a large portion of the cells soon after laying, willi insure the destruction of a very large portion of the eggs by- exposure- Harrowing turns most of the eggs up to the surface of the ground, and uv'llicns arc eaten by the birds, that otherwise wouid not find them Repeat the harrowing once or twice during the winter, when warm days thaw the ground sufficenlly. Would not plow under, because, in uiy opinion that simply covers up the eggs and bcl- uer preserves them really. When the ground is stirred again, 'hay are thown to the surface and hatched out, thus only prolonging the hopper season Plowing destroys but few eggs, and breaks but few cells. In the spring when the hoppers hatch, they neither travel or act of any conse- quence until eight or ten days old During this early stago of their exist- ence they hu'ddle together in vas't num- bers, in warm sunny swarm of bees At nhis time they are easly destroyed, w'itli a spade, board, or quarts of Baleratus, a pint of sugar, two pounds of milk. fruTt to suit taste; stir well and boil a slow flre for three hours, and then set aside in a cold oven for Somehow, Jones said it didn't sound just righf, but that was the In.- n; les read." brooui made of small twigs, sprinkling them with coal oil or bjr anyway to kill.
