Not Long ago there appeared in the columns of a new York newspaper Tho following announcement a and now a servant girl society has been organized in Gotham for the Protection of mistress and maid. Tho society demands that each servant on leaving her mistress shall leave behind her a reference of character. The reference shall stale whether the mistress his been mild tempered or severe Liberal or prudent subject to company or not Etc. The mistress also gives a reference. In this Way both parties Are suited neither is imposed upon fend the world wags harmoniously the fact is that the relations of mistress and servant Are rapidly of ranging. The servants gain in Power every Day and they seem to also gain in inefficiency. One half the talk of Washington society i Blush to say it relates to servants and the ladies Here Are discussing whether it might not be possible to bring about a Reform in the education of their servants and in the rules respecting them. The question of coloured servants is. White is an important one where about one third of the copulation is made up of negroes and i find a general desire among the leading ladies of Hie land that schools for the training of servants should be established Here and throughout Tho country. Vii Milf or. . Stooke hang. Let me present you to our Cook miss Whalen. We Are riving a theatre party on the occasion of the completion of Lier third week with us puck. I have spent this week in interviewing some of our most noted women on tile servant girl question. I have taken the experienced housekeepers among our statesmen a wives and i find that every woman has her own ideas on the subject Aud that Many of them Are Good ones. One of my first visits was to mrs. Proctor the wife of the Secretary of War who will this Winter assume her rightful position among the ladies of the Cabinet As Well As at the head of her household which she was last season compelled to resign to her Niece. Mrs. Carey and her daughter on account of her Devotion to her invalid son. Mrs Proctor said a i have had very Little if any experience in housekeeping in Washington. Mrs. Carey having last Winter entirely relieved me of All responsibility in that respect As in others so i am hardly qualified to give judgment in regard to the class of service in the District of Columbia. With the exception of my Cook and waiter both of w Hom Are coloured i have brought with me from new England most of my help. This year i have secured a Swiss girl. A i find the Swiss to be a most Thrifty hard working class. This girl will perform the duties of maid and i have so far found that servants among the Swiss seem to possess an innate adaptability and quickness of perception that is largely in their favor above others. You would be surprised to know How ambitious the lower classes among the race Are to make for themselves a Homo and a Community in America a their Only drawback to the successful accomplishment of the desire is the fact that they have As yet few churches established in our midst. Being a Clannish Community they Rind it difficult to mingle with strangers at their worship. A judging from the complaints that i hear in All sides of the difficulty of obtaining Good servants i am of the opinion that it would be As Well to organize a society for the training of servants w to might he induced while attending school to devote an hour or so of each Day to learning How to Cook make Beds set a table properly or any of the other accomplishments by which they expect to earn their mrs. Noble says she has Good reason since her arrival in Washington to Pray for a reformation among the coloured servants of Tho District. She is unfortunately compelled to employ six and finds the truth of mrs. Stowe a assertion that a a multitude of servants is like a roast at every tire they must needs each he attended to a and one invariably gets in the Way of another. Quot in fact she said with a sigh of resignation a i find them a great responsibility but a very necessary a can you not propose some remedy a i asked. A the Only remedy i can suggest would lie the organization of some charitable society for the Early training of the working class where a Complete initiation into the various avocations by which they Hope to gain a livelihood will be the end sought mrs. Rusk wife of the Secretary of agriculture considers herself very fortunate Iii having secured the Well trained White servants brought from Wisconsin by mrs. Sex Loumaster general Vilas thereby escaping the usual discouragements experienced by Many newly arrived Washington housekeepers. In discussing the subject mrs. Rusk spoke approvingly of the established cooking schools in Wisconsin and Illinois a to which Many ladies Are in the habit of sending their servants for regular hours of tuition. Liis Branch of education is also considered an important adjunct of the Industrial schools in which both boys and girls Are carefully instructed Iii the various trades including those of Cooks housemaids and waitresses. Quot such children so instructed yearly find ready employment and Seldom fail of giving satisfaction to Tho employer. A Good mistress is More Apt to secure Good service if she has a practical understanding of House winery and is careful to personally instruct her help in each particular duty. I do not doubt but w hat the organization of some such a school in our midst would very soon repay the efforts of those interested and prove an undeniable Blessing to the Community at senator Sherman a wife thinks the most efficient remedy for the present evil of poor service and dishonesty among those employed would be the organization of a training school Iii conjunction with Tho coloured Public schools of the District. She tells me that for nearly 20 years she has had the same Cook a typical old Virginia Darkey w Hom she secured at the close of the w a. And who according to the custom of All Southern households in Ante Bellum Days w As instructed almost from infancy in the essential rudiments of her Art. A unfortunately a continued she a old Fanny has at length grown incapacitated for Active work and i Ain compelled to employ a younger woman. I have been Busy All the week initiating the new Cook hut i am thankful to have accomplished the worst part of the work in the selection from among a throng of applicants by whom i have been besieged. I begin to appreciate the annoyances of those who Are less fortunate than myself and who have been compelled to change from one month to Anither. A i remember a she went on Quot what a trying experience of this kind mrs. Grant had luring her Early life in Washington and luring the time of the general a command. She was cont Tinniey being annoyed by Quot first a a Pue servant and then another refusing to perform certain duties in order to shift mein off upon the shoulders of other servants. At length affairs reached such a Climax that it was almost impossible to ob-5ain any attention. When the state of affairs became apparent to the general he railed the domestics together and with Mil itary precision apportioned to each his separate duties demanding unquestioning obedience in All respects upon pain of instant dismissal. After this the work was harmoniously accomplished and complaints were no longer mrs. Sherman added Quot i think that an overstrained spirit of Independence is an american fault and quickly influences those who dwell for a while among us. As an example of this i recall the time of our Home life at Mansfield o. There w Ere Many germans living there most of whom came Over to act As servants and very Good ones they made but the second generation invariably reaped the Benefit of their parents Thrift and. Marrying Well to do tradesmen would enjoy Homes of their own. I remember one family of germans nine in number each of whom upon coming to the country obtained employment in resident families and by careful management Laid by sufficient to Purchase a Large Brick House after which they lived together in Domestic nothing would induce one of their children to accept a servants position. Unless some Effort is made before Long to destroy this false idea of Independence every mistress will have to lie Lier own maid and every Householder his own mrs. Cullom wife of the Illinois senator i found at her handsome Massachusetts a. Home having but recently returned from the West. A soft voiced neat looking White maid opened Tim door and ushered me up into the Large Square parlor on Tho second door. Mrs. Cullom replied to my question concerning her experience with servants that she had brought her Cook and housemaid with her from Illinois As she was surprised to find that of those who hired out As professional waitresses very few knew even How to set a table properly. A with the exception of my Coachman a coloured Man a she said Quot i prefer Irish domestics or rather those of Irish descent. Though i have had Little or no experience with. Coloured servants in the House As a general thing i understand that the men of the coloured race make much More reliable servants than the women. One of the most original arrangements within my experience was the Case of mrs. Hayes. It was during a visit paid us some years since by the sex president and his wife that i Learned to my Surprise that or. Hayes Valet also performed the duties of maid to his wife that is to personally superintended their sleeping rooms and with his own hands Cadi morning Laid out his mistress clean Linen and arranged the adornments of her toilet. I never could understand this fancy on mrs. Hayes part still with her it seemed the most natural thing in the world and certainly the Valet was most conscientious and efficient in Tho performance of his rather unusual i asked mrs. Cullom what she thought would be the most effectual Means of bring lug about a Reform in the education of our servants and she said a by All Means let us organize a training school in every City and train the poor children in All the Domestic duties of every Day life laying a firm foundation of practical knowledge in All those important branches w hich will enable them to gain an honest mrs. Senator Vance of North Carolina has had Many years experience of housekeeping in our midst and by her education in a luxurious Southern Home is capable of a just estimation of the servant question. Quot what has been your experience with servants since you came to Washington a i asked. Quot to Tell the truth a she answered a i have been exceptionally fortunate in having brought my Cook with me from Tho South Many years ago and. With Lier husband As waiter i have never enjoyed greater Comfort in housekeeping notwithstanding Tho fact that the Man was a divinity student and spent most of the morning at College. He conscientiously performed every duty before leaving each Dayan proved an accomplished waiter Aly greatest trouble has always been with my Coachman. Quot something ought certainly to be done to Reform their Lubits. Hut the question is a what a there is a Fine Field for missionary work in this respect could an interest to aroused among charitable people in our midst. Another secret of securing Good service is to be strict in our management and never to perform a duty that has been wilfully neglected by a Domestic one of the very Best housekeepers As w Ell As the most respected mistress i Ever knew was a Kentucky woman who told me that the True secret of her Success with Good servants w its that she never overlooked the smallest neglect of duty but never forgot that they were human beings and required Little indulgences and some time for Leisure after the regular work of the Day Wras performed. Quot in this Way site retained their affection As Well As their respect and the machinery of the household moved on oiled wheels. I most sincerely endorse the proposal for the organization of a training school for Young coloured girls Iii the District one of the most practical managers Iii our midst is mrs. Morton wife of the Vic president. I am told that she employs some 18 or 20 servants including housemaid. Ladies maid Cooks laundress Saub Laun dresses Coachman Footman and housekeeper. Seventeen of those All White were brought on with them from Tho North last w inter and so systematic is the household that there is never any clashing of duties or complaint of each other. Mrs. Morton notwithstanding All her social obligations regularly oversees the arrangement for Eracli Day and holds a morning interview first with the Cook and afterwards each employee in turn. In this Way there is no hitch and the usual conflicting worries of housekeeping Are avoided. Mrs. Stew Art the wife of the Nevada statesman who has but recently returned from Nevada and leased a furnished House on g St. In the old West end tells me that Lier patience has been exhausted with the continuous discord among her maid ser vants. Until at length she has been compelled to Call a meeting and Settle All differences Over work by a regular War talk and by laying Down a distinct Law for each. So shiftless was Tho service that each endeavoured to throw All the work on the others. In this Way nothing was accomplished and the highest wages were demanded. Mule. Romero employs mixed help and finds that As a general Rule the apparently conflicting nationalities agree remarkably w Ell. She has a French Cook an Irish maid and a coloured Butler and Footman. Her greatest trouble has always been with the Scullion w to is Seldom retained for any length of time. A philadelphian by birth the wife of the mexican Minster is an excellent manager and the extended Hospital ties of the legation Are ranked among the most elegant entertainments of the season.

Senator Stanford has a chinese Cook and these chinese make As Good Cooks As you w ill find in the world. Tile chinaman can learn anything and after a few lessons he will heat the Frenchman himself at getting up a Good dinner. I hear stories every Day of tile wonderful efficiency of Tho chinese Cooks connected with our legation in the far East and an sex minister to China lately told me his experiences. Said he a i arrived Iii the country knowing nothing about the habits of the people or the language. I w As worried As to How i w As going to be Able to get up my state dinners. And i Lay awake several nights thinking about it. When i arrived at my pod however i found that the Cook whom my Secretary of legation had engaged for me was a full blooded chinaman. I expected a diet of Rice and rats and was surprised to find my first meal the Hest i had Ever sat Down to. I have never seen a Cook who could beat this chinaman. To would get up a big dinner a la table do Hote w till no More fuss than a meal for two and he would have the w Ine the courses and everything in As Nice order As you could get it at Del to Uicon a or the grand hotel de the japanese servants Are not so Good. They need watching. I heard yesterday of some queer antics performed by a newly imported japanese nurse in the employ of or. Austin Herr. Or. Herr is a million Naire. He went to Julian a year ago and was so delighted w Ith the people that when he came Back he could do nothing until lie had sent for this nurse. Tho family were pleased with Lier when she came but it was noticed at once that she possessed queer ideas of baby farming. She had a strange fascination for carrying the baby head downward with apparent unconsciousness of tile danger to the child. After serious admonitions however she was finally induced to Correct the habit and taught to push the infant out tucked snugly up Iii its pretty Pink lined Carriage. All went Well until one Day the neighbors noticed a curious performance that they were not Long in communicating to the parents. It seems that no sooner had the nurse and child disappeared around the Corner of the Street out of sight of the dwelling than the nurse would carefully gather the garments about the feet of the baby and quickly dragging it Forth would treat it to a succession of rapid whirls and then seeming Well pleased with the exercise carefully restore the child to its Carriage and with apparent unconcern quietly continue her walk. Miss Grundy or. How to make cigarettes. Smokers May save health and Money and amuse themselves. Notwithstanding the vigorous denunciation medical men have launched against the smoking of cigarettes it is pretty evident the Dainty Little cylinders of tobacco and paper Are steadily growing in popularity Aud that the warnings and protests so plentifully scattered have Little of any effect in deterring those who have acquired a taste piecing the tobacco. For them from pursuing it too often literally to the bitter end. Without approving of the practice those who will smoke cigarettes would do Well to follow Tho example of one w to has been a regular cigarette smoker for Over 20 years and make their of n cigarettes. By doing this they will not ouly secure a healthier but also a More enjoyable smoke. The first fold. The ready made cigarette is in More ways than one u delusion. In the first place to give it shape and permanency. The tobacco has to be tightly packed whereas it should he so lightly rolled that the slightest Effort will draw a sufficient current of air through it to maintain the combustion. Again in the bought cigarette the tobacco has almost invariably become hard and dry before it is smoked. Tho result of this is that it Burns too rap idly giving out a hot unpleasant smoke rolling the dotted lines show position of fingers behind the paper. W hich if the smoking is continued for any length of time will inevitably produce Tim burning of the lips and Throat that novices so frequently complain of. By purchasing tobacco and paper the Only materials required Tho smoker can ensure the Quality of both and by making up his How to hold. Making mouthpiece. Own cigarettes he will have them at half the Cost while the pleasure to he derived from them w ill be More than doubled. Tho illustrations Given show tile process so clearly that it is Only necessary to say that the fresher the tobacco and the More lightly and evenly it is rolled tile More enjoyable and healthy will the smoker find his cigarette. _ _ feminine Benevolence. Blessing old bachelors with All the comforts of Home quite the latest organization of women is a society of a ladies to look after bachelors Linen when it has come from the there is no Beneficence which appeals so irresistibly to the tenderness of womanhood. Or which will have More enthusiastic Wohlers of a certain kind than this devoted to the amelioration of the condition of the most fortunate creatures in the world the old bachelors. It is to he hoped says the Sun that this is but the nucleus of a greater organization that shall take up other needed lines of work with the same general object that there will be associations of Sweet girls devoted to the holding of old bachelors Neads on Tho morning after k club dinner and applying Tho refreshing ice poultice that there will he self denying women going about to straighten up old bachelors Parlours and put things away where the owners can never find them. Perhaps there will be thoughtful unselfish women who will fill All the books in the bachelors closets with skirts and leave him to hang his things upon the door like the enviable Benedict because these Isnit any other place to hang them. And possibly some humane Mother will he found who will allow the unfortunate lonely Bachelor to w Alk the corridor three or four hours Iii the night with a baby with the croup or wrestling with a dentition. Truly this is a work worthy the efforts of All gentle ladies. The result at Gettysburg. Cen. Abner Doubleday in North american toward the close of the contest on the first Days Battle at Gettysburg Hancock Rode up and told me that lie had been sent to assume command of the Field. He was our Good Genius for he at once brought order out of confusion and made such admirable dispositions that lie secured the Ridge and held it As he was Junior in rank to Gen. Howard he had no right technically speaking to supersede the latter. Meade had assigned Nim to that duty it is True but. Under the Law Only Tho president himself could place a Junior general Over a senior. Howard did not recognize him As his Superior and i think Hancock As he Rode Over to me was in some doubt As to whether i As commander of the 1st corps would acknowledge him As Howard a Superior. Had i refused to do so the Battle of Gettysburg in All probability would have had a different termination. As Hancock ranked me however Tho question did not concern me personally and i saw plainly enough that if i refused to acknowledge his delegated authority both the 1st and 11 the corps would be surrounded and captured. Iliad no desire to see the men of my command sent to adorn the prisons of the confederacy and i therefore did not insist on any technicality which would be certain to produce that result.

And the profession gets tilt Benefit of that with a Panther. Thrilling experience of an Ohio boy. An incident of Frontier life almost without parallel. The Little fellow awoke and found the beast beside him. Tim Story of Tho settlement of Ohio is Replete with strange mid thrilling adventures. From the time of the arrival of Rufus put am a intrepid Little Colony to the Blase of the second War with great Britain the a Buckeye by Utah was Tho locale of startling events some of which if not properly authenticated would read like the wildest chapters of fiction. Homo of the earliest settlers found their Way through the unbroken forests to the Hanks of Tim Muski Ngum and there roared their Cabins. Those Mon were for the most part Tho Heads of increasing families some of the members of which were Mere children but these were As courageous in their Way As their parents. Tho boys Learned to handle the Roflo As soon of they were Large enough to Harry it and from that hour were looked upon to furnish the Larder with daily supplies of game which was not u very difficult task for the forests were literally alive with Deer turkeys pheasants and Tho like. In addition to such game there were boars and panthers and some of Tho most sanguinary encounters recorded in the settlement of the West occurred Between Tho settlers of the Muski Ngum country and these animals. Among the people who came into the Region i have mentioned was Andrew Blossom a Hardy Pioneer in the prime of life he built his Cabin with the Aid of ids wife and son the latter a robust youth of 14, very fond of roving in the Woods with a Rifle and a Good shot. Tom Illo som was no Tina lured nearly a lavs whistling except when creeping after some wary game like a flock of turkeys and it was not often that lie came Home with nothing in his game bag. He soon came to know the Muski Ngum Forest like a Book Well read. Its trails were like turnpikes to him and All knew that he stood in no danger of losing his Way. In building the Cabin Tom bad stipulated that he should have the Quot loft to himself. Aud was permitted to fit it up As he saw fit. It was not Long before lie had adorned it with trophies of Tho Hunt such As Antlers Coon skins Turkey feathers and the like. The ouly window in the attic looked toward the West and across one end of the Clearing. It was about 15 feet from die ground and Tom had made a log ladder a a felled sapling with Sticks nailed across a which reached from the window to Terra Firma. He had done this for the purpose of getting to the ground without going Down tile ladder on the inside of the Cabin and disturbing his parents for on Moonlight nights game was to be seen from the loft and he was accustomed to following it across the Clearing in Hopes of a night prize. Iii the summer time the window was not protected at a1hut during the Winter a piece of greased paper served to keep out Tho cold As Well As let in the Light a very primitive window but it was All the settlers had those Days. A i saw the big tracks Down in the Gully again today a said Tom Blossom to his father As the latter came Hack from a neighbors a blog raising some to Miles from Home. A a they re uncommon big for a Painter but that a just what made a did you lose them a asked the settler who knew that his boy was As Good a trailer tis there was in the country. A i hollered Mem two mites Over the roughest ground along the Muski Ngum and they went into a lot of Timber where i lost Mem and had to trudge Home without a Toms accent showed How bitter his disappointment had been but when his father said that maybe the Quot Painter would come Back and give them a Chance later on he took Hope and after awhile clambered up the ladder and went to bed. A Elf id Only got one shot a sighed Tom. Looking Oward the Gully from his window. Quot in All my life i Bever saw such tracks for a Painter. To must he bigger than Josh buggies dog. I begin to cover the prints with my hand. He May come Back and somebody May get a Bead on in and then id lose him altogether my Luck will he to lose the an mile for he evidently found nothing in the Gully and went Home the Young Moon just three Days old was climbing the tree tops beyond the window when Tom heard a whistle at the Edge of the Clearing and with a cry of a Dick Chambers. Ill be bound a he took up the Rifle and made his Way outside ladder. 8ure enough Dick Chambers a boy of his own age and their nearest neighbor was waiting for him. Dick had seen the Large footprints in the Gully and ii Sci come to acquaint Tom with his discovery. Quot they look uncommon fresh near the month Rock a said Dick. Quot what near the smooth Rock a echoed Tom. Quot there War no tracks there tins morning. Lets go and the boys saw tue head and shoulders of the Panther. The boy nimrods sallied Forth crossing Tho Clearing and soon reached the spot where Dick pointed at the ground in Triumph. Tom got Down on his Knees and looked for a moment with All eyes. Suddenly he gave a prolonged whistle. Quot he a come Back Dick a said Tom rising. A the old Fellar is in the Vicinity and if we a Toms sentence was Cut Short by the cracking of a dry Twig and Tho boys looking up and in the same direction at the same moment saw outlined against Tim new Moon the head and shoulders of the Panther. For a minute they seemed to forget their guns and stood like statues As if the apparition had deprived them of motion the head was very Largo and fierce looking and from Toms mental calculation tile animal could not be More than 20 paces Distant. Shooting after night is a very deceiving sport. You Are liable to make a poor shot especially when you have to depend on the Light of the Moon. Young though he was nobody knew this better than Tom Blossom Ami Glion lie unused his Rifle it was with some misgivings though he resolved to make the Best shot of his life. Kick chamber held his breath while he waited for the crack of Fonds Rifle and when it broke the stillness of the night and the Panther disappeared with a howl of pain lie cried out that the beast had been Bard hit and would have bounded Forward if Tom had not pulled him Back. The boys did not Advance to the spot where the Panther bad stood until Tom had carefully reloaded hut their caution was All for naught for beyond a Trail of blood which glistened in the Light of the Moon there was nothing to show for the shot. A Quot its too bad but i had a touch of a Buck fever a a said Tom with a smile. A Meb be we can Rind him yet a and they scouted the immediate Vicinity but without finding the animal. Indeed they lost the blood Trail altogether and at last Dick bade Tom Good night and refit Home. He clambered up the sapling ladder and put Tho gun away then disrobed and threw himself upon ins bed to think awhile of the big Panther and then to fall asleep to dream of the same creature. Once it must have been near Midnight for the Moon had gone Down Lorn was awakened by w hat appeared to be a Long strange cry from the Forest. He went to Tho window and looked out but saw nothing. He might have opened his eyes if it Lia Ltd been Daylight from eagerness to know what he was to discover the next morning and after looking awhile he went Back to Bod and was soon asleep again this time sounder than before. Tom Blossom had contracted a habit of getting up before the Sun and the earliest Birds were twittering in the Trees when he opened his Eves. Quot i can Toller Tho Trail by Daylight a said loin thinking of the big Panther a Elf Tho beast is badly wounded be wont go far and i May hag Sun after he had hardly ended when he happened to look across the lied and saw something that teemed to freeze his blood. If he had gone to bed alone he now had a bedfellow and the strangest one a Pioneer boy Ever had. Lying almost at Lull length beside him was the largest Panther he had Ever seen. The huge head was buried Between the forepaws and the beast seemed asleep and totally oblivious of the attention lie was attracting. Tom raised himself upon his Elbow and looked steadily at the Panther. He could see by the motions of the Tawny hide that the animal was alive and while he looked the head moved and the eyes letter. Lying almost at full length was the largest Panther he had Ever seen. Realizing his danger. Tom dropped Hack and feigned sleep lie could hear his own heart and Felt that Tho Panther was watching him with breathless curiosity As much surprised Asho had been a moment before. Presently the Panther arose Ami stood erect at the Edge of the cot. Then Tom ventured to enclose his eyes and got a Good look at his late bedfellow. Ile was surely the monster animal at which he had fired the night before. The beast had Benn wounded for there was clotted blood on Olio Side of Tho head and the lied where he had lain was deeply stained. The Rifle was just out of Toms reach hut even if it had been within his grasp lie would not have seized it for the slightest movement might have Cost him his life. The Frontier boy continued to watch the Panther till it moved toward the window where it put its for feet upon the Sill Ami looked Ilow n the ladder. Tom could see that it was weak and panting and his wish was that it would quit the loft without coming Back to the cot. Seconds seemed hours to Tom while to watched the big Panther and when it began to leave the window climbing out like a eat he breathed free once More. Ile did not move till he heard the Panther going Down the ladder when he sprang from bed and jerked Tho Rifle from its Corner. It was hut a Spring to Tim window and the boy saw the animal making Oil slowly across Tho Clearing like a beast sorely wounded. To raised the Rifle and took deliberate aim for now to had no Moonshine to deceive him Arni when the Panther paused a second to look Back at Tim House As if Loath to leave it because of the Good bed it contained lie pressed the trigger. The huge animal in the Centro of the Little Clearing sprang into Tho air and with a i v intensely human Iii its intonation fell Back to struggle for one Brief moment in the grass. The shot had not ceased to Echo when the door of the Cabin flew open Aud Tho settler of the Musk in gum rushed out. A a that a the big taunted tried Tom from the window. Quot i slept with in last night and lie was Gobi Oil without paying Tor his lodging la then Tom came Down Tim ladder and told the Story of Tim night limit with Dick. Father and son agreed that the Panther badly wounded had come Back As they discovered a Pool of blood under a Chimp of Hughes beneath Tim attic window and that seeing the loaning ladder he had clambered no into Toms room and hopped exhausted on the bed w without so much As investigating who his companion was. It was not Long before foul s adventure we As known throughout the District and Many ame to see the Panther which was the largest Ever seen in those parts. Tom Blossom grow to manhood and when he w As quite an old Man he was wont to take Little children on his Knees and Tell them the Story of tile boy who slept with the Panther. Errors in English.

Made the resolutions of the Hartford convention their own and forthwith despatched commissioners to Washington to demand compliance with an arrangement w hich would have practically converted new England into a distinct confederacy. Precisely the same course was taken by the Connecticut legislature. Or. Adams in his recent volume shows that the effect of this proceeding was perfectly understood by republicans As Wadi As federalists throughout the country. A a Mammoth wheel. Rehoboth sunday Herald what is believed to be the largest wheel in tile world was recently made at the Scranton penn., works of Tho Dickson manufacturing company for Hie Calumet amp Hecla mining company of Michigan. It is a cog wheel 54 feet in diameter with an 18-Inch face and is built in the exact form of a bicycle with its extensions and spokes. Tho capacity of the wheel at a velocity of to feet a second at the inner Edge of the buckets is 30,000.000 Gallons of water and 2000 tons of Sand Iii 24 hours. Its weight is 400,000 pounds. The journals Are 23 inches in diameter and 3 feet 4 inches Long. The total length of the Shaft is 23 feet 0 inches. Just How Senate seats Are increase corruption 0�od times or Hail times Short terms that Are Worth $5000 and Long terms Worth $100,000. Washington Jan. 31.�?who Are the corruption lists they Are not Only the lobbyists and a part of the politicians hut a Good big proportion of persons in Trade. There is not a department or Bureau in the government which would not make you Stop and hesitate before you alleged that it was perfectly Clear and pure. Can Yon say that of lands id inns River and Barlow improvements Public buildings but As Long As we Are Well fermented by Trade this corruption is no More than so much foul Silt in the sea where it is said that a certain proportion of organic matter even though corrupt helps to purify the general body. Might it not then he necessary for a Little corruption in a highly Effer vesting nation As big As an Ocean the magnitude of our governmental operations allows of a Little corruption just As it does of a Good Deal of loss and negligence by Accident. Take Tho internal Revenue system w hich costs lint 84,000,000 to get it All and the amount was 8142,500,000 the last year enough to pay off the remainder of our National debt in five or six years. The percentage of collection was less than 3 per cent., or less than any real estate operator or lawyer w ill charge. There Are particular districts such As the fifth Illinois which pay in 823,000,000 every year. If that District is about the City of Chicago it is probably More than Tim w Hole Cost of the City government though collected Only on whiskey and tobacco if it is Tho Peoria District the whiskey tax paid there is 8500 for every soul in the place though it has 50,000 inhabitants. In Tho first Ohio District which May be Cincinnati for Aii i know eleven million dollars w i re collected last year upon w Hiskey ale and tobacco yet in that City the people burned Down their court House Only a few years ago either from hostility to the Laws or hoodlum ism. I was talking to a general observer As we took our breakfast together who had been himself in the government in various relations and also in the government of one or More states. Said lie. At last a i Only say that it is necessary to keep business alive lest corruption in More apparent. You take a said lie a anyone of these poor wretches whom you see going about the streets dissipated and lost for having once held office and give him employment and the probabilities Are that he would Correct his habits and stick to his Job. But being unemployed look at that Man who is now passing us. I in w As once a great customs officer at an important City. He was handsome sensitive gentlemanly. His regime fell and to dropped from Point to Point till now he probably sleeps in another Many a bed and awaits an invitation to drink from a Good natured contractor or spoils Man around the government in order that he May Avail himself of the drink and get a bit of free lunch like a Fried Oyster for his subsistence. Quot his clothes Are going Down. He wears Odd boots. Once there passed through his hands some millions of dollars a year and his own salary w As perhaps 85000 or More per year. He has been living in this Way Long and Long and you can see by his Eye that he is desperate about the future. Borne Day there will lie a funeral perhaps and a few of his fellow bums will take him out to the cheapest graveyard unless the doctors got hold of him. A Visay that that Man if he were Given a commission might become a resuscitated person and take care of himself and of what was committed to him whilst now he is it i pc for reasons stratagems and spoils. Upon a vast scale in this country what would be the condition of a million families or More if we came to real hard times a i reflected a moment and said that i thought that real hard tunes would not increase corruption hut promote Industry Aud that there was nothing As melancholy in the fall of families As one could observe with philosophical eyes in the Rise of families. When a family Falls the daughter May suffer from excessive Confidence but then All her family will assemble around Lier Aud she will become the Martyr of the House and instead of vice being promoted grief sympathy and com pc will begin. But if that daughter stumbles As the family rises cheats her parents is ungrateful to the authors of her being becomes a false wife sets a vicious example and begets children whom she does not discipline How Mournful is her Rise How Happy would he her fall the pathos of this world comes w Holly out of downfalls. Corruption w ins not More than honesty. Yet As i reflected i thought of some Little thing suggestive of the temptation which is planted in our system As it was Iii the Garden of Eden according to the jew. Here is a state coming into Tho Union having attained a certain population so that to keep it out House and Senate had commenced to look like denying representation. An act is passed to bring it into the Union. Immediately the principal political Boss the principal editor arid some Speculator in honors and offices from a distance Start out to soil the senator ships of that state to the highest bidder. They Are discreet of course. They go to a great City at a Long distance and find a Man who has Lent some Money in their new state upon mortgage. They say to him Quot we can make you senator. How much Are von Worth a a How can you make me senator a says this Man who Lias Beele ail his life industrious and is i null rally Miry hint Al Ashing for a moneyed Man. Quot Well you Are Worth something How much Are you Worth a Quot i suppose i have got 8300,000 or 8400.000.�?� Quot Well we can make you senator for 850.000. Of you draw the six year term you will get 830,000 Back and that at compound interest almost amounts to your investment. Meantime you will he a senator. And that Means everything for your family. You ought to be a senator anyhow you will be a conspicuous that night the Man at a distance does not sleep. The next morning he goos and wakes up his Best Friend and in order to make a Story w hich shall he plausible he says that he has just refused the smut Ursine of one of the new states. He says he could have had it very easily hut he thought on the whole he had better not try. His Friend grunts not having considered Rifold chum in the Light of a senator and being rather disgusted w Ith the Outlook possibly from jealousy. At least the other Man thinks it is jealousy and so he lets out a Little More of the Story. Quot damned fool says his Friend trying to get the last half hour of rest in the morning a parcel of scamps i suppose want to get your Money. They stand up a Stool Pigeon like you at least once a year Between these friends close relations cease for about six months. At the end of that time Hack from the Distant territory comes our business Man. Glad to get Home with his clothes. To had gone out there merely to taste the possibilities of a senator ship by setting up a Little wine wearing his Best clothes and exploiting his capital As he represents it to be. They borrow a fiver and a Tenet and a fifty. They charge him their Hills at the hotel. They order up liquor on his account. At last they work him for his note. He stomach dives out when he has lost some 810,000, which is All he could have afforded in any event for the senator ship and then he comes Back to his Friend with a doleful tale of american corruption. Quot my god a he exclaims a what is to become of this system of government when those Young states Are disposing of their senator ships when the governor of Tho i or Story who was one of the candidates Paul $0000, they say to a lobbyist and chum of a president to lie appointed and when the Rich Man in. The t territory deliberately constructs one of the senator ships into an asset Aud comes to peddle it to me pioneered thereto by a former statesman of the country who had sacked one or More states a a Rich Mexico lie Hail passed thro Mill and sacked the splendours of Peru. The two old friends now resume close re i at on and Gad about with each other for a week As Happy As two boys this timing the end of a senatorial Lark. Now this is nearly a literal picture of what Lias Lieen taking place in some quarters Ever since the new states entered into the Union. The status of one of those territories is fugitive and barely social. The area is so Large and the towns so Small and Fow that Only at the territorial legislature do Hie people find each other out and their greediness is the Universal Law. Where there Are three towns of nearly the same size and each expectant to be Tho state capital combinations will be Marie Between two of those Tow us to murder the other one As criminal in their motive As if two men had resolved to waylay the third their Friend and take his Money. No Point is omitted to break Down this third town its site is said to he full of typhoid fever its principal merchant is Multi to have keen a refugee. It is predicted that the Railroad track alongside of it w ill be taken up within three years and a bet made to that effect and that it will he Inland 70 Miles. These Are the pleasant Lieg linings of Commonwealth life Iii our country under our perfect system. When the two towns have murdered the third the next process is to murder each other. At last the territorial capital is settled and it feebly creeps along toward that tragical time w Hen the state is to make a capital. In such a state of society while there May lie plenty of Talent it is fresh and suspected. The Only Talent of much consequence Iii a new territory is Money. Hence in scriptural Davs perhaps they called Money a Talent and the fellow who hid his Talent in a Napkin possibly a big eater was called an unprofitable servant and cast into outer darkness otherwise cutout of the barroom. Quot what Host thou done with thy Talent a says Tho parable. A thou gayest me two talents a says Tho Man a aim behold Here Are Quot Well done Good and faithful this is the Story of the Man with talents in a territory. Desperate want of Money in these new societies is one of the causes of to Weir present heterodoxy on the whole Money subject. Iii every such territory there will be one Manor More to acquire Tim most property he will have the Best sheep Range Tho must sheep the Host dog to watch the sheep the Hest understanding with the indians not to molest his sheep an interest in the mail contracts and mail stages a knowledge therefore of who comes into the territory and who receives letters and of whomsoever assistance is sent to a Little depository to keep Money will be Rome Tho property of this Man. If new mines Are discovered i will get a hand in them and he indeed Besought to take that hand. Blowfly lie will Kate nil ills operations to the next City of magnitude which had hankers and wealth from that to the City beyond it and finally on to the far East. When the state is admitted to tile Union he will look Over it and ask Quot what Are our assets a tile answer will quickly come Quot our Hest assets Are the two two duffers will be set up for the Senate and one m ill draw the Short term and the other the Long term. The Short term ought to be Worth $5000, or the amount of Tho salary for a year the Lon term ought to he Worth $50,000, and we May strike a fellow East who will pay $100,000 for it. It is $50,000 in Money anyhow and a smart fellow ought to make $50,000 morn out of it in a couple of years this is the w a the great Rich men of the territory looks at the situation. I do not say that in every territory is such a person but in some territories he will he recognized at once even by the editor who will proceed to describe me us the unreliable professor of syntax who has been bought with British Gold. George Alfred Townsend. A Good business woman. How she to a funny w As equal occasion. A Rush St. Bello says the Chicago mall was surprised Tho other Day to receive an invitation of which the following is the substance lits compliments to miss --.�?, Ami requests her company to the Charity Hall it the auditorium thursday Jan. 8, Impi. Awaiting unit hoping for an Early aint favourable reply we Are yours very truly Plank a co. The writer of this most remarkable effusion is a Young i Kiness Man who is a partner Iii a big Down town concern and who docs a Large proportion of the correspondence of course signing Tim firm s name thereto. To absorbed was lie in business that he concluded ills invitation with the stereotyped sentence quoted above and to Cap the Climax signed the firms name to it. The fair recipient however appreciated the situation and the Young Man was thunderstruck to receive q letter addressed to him personally hut containing Tho following apply to Iris invitation my sirs. Blank a n. Or. Favor of recent Date to hand and contend noted. In reply will say we accept the proposition therein made and hold the goods ordered subject to or. Further instructions. Very respectfully miss it co. Women Are to blame. At least that is the opinion of Nell Nelson. What we Are pleased to term thoughtless flirting is perhaps More apparent in a country town than in a big bad City like new York w rites Nell Nelson in the world. Here it is absolutely dangerous. In the country town everybody a Jows Tho Young men who indulge in flirtations and that alone is Protection for Tho Giddy Little girls similarly inclined. But Iii the City where the very next door neighbors Are strangers through a whole generation there is no Protection whatever and the girl who makes the acquaintance of a strange Man or woman on the Street runs an awful risk. If she takes the same chances that the misguided hut Beautiful mrs. Southworth took the chances that poor Little cigarette girl Annie Goodwin took that tile unfortunate Mamie Jackson took there is no reason to suppose that the results will be other than tragic. Unfortunately experience does no to teach much. But generalities aside no girl can afford to flirt no matter where she lives or who she is. It is a blow at her own self respect it is an acknowledgement of ignorance and argues tile absence of dignity woman s greatest Charm. Any girl who makes the acquaintance of a Man in an irregular manner should know that in doing so she gives him the right to insult her. A reprobate will Avail himself of this privilege and the merest apology of a Man will Nave absolutely no respect for Lier. Men hate common women and flirts belong to this class. It is a fact that women Are responsible for the now general practice of flirting. Men May begin Tim programme and make Tim advances but there must be encouragement and action from Tho other Side for its continuance. Tho creatures who make these advances Are scorned by honest people of both sexes. When a gentleman meets a lady he admires and cares very much to know instead of trying to flirt with her he finds an honorable Way of making Lier acquaintance. A gentleman will never offer any woman Tho indignity of trying to flirt with Lier. To manage Morse invent it startling Story of Thi electric Telegraph vermonters insist that Thomas l Avee port originated it while prof. Morse gave to the worm Only the alphabet. Rutland. Feb. does not claim that Vermont men made the Dis revery of every important invention bul she does claim that two of the most value Hie discoveries known to modern time were made through Tim inventive Genius of her citizens the Steamboat before Fulton by Samuel mercy arid the electric Telegraph and motor ears by Thomas Davenport. Both claims Are Well sustained even at this late Date by Oral and record evidence. The claim of Morey to the invention of the Steamboat has Lieen clearly set Forth recently in Tim Coin in us of the Globe. The claim of Davenport to Tim invention of Tim electric Telegraph Telephone and the running of machinery is now being Mort thoroughly investigated and the Evi deuces Are becoming More Patent by Tim finding of the original machinery with which he worked and even models and written correspondence recently discovered by Iris family. This How Ever is not the first time the claim has been made but it never has been so thoroughly investigated Saitia now timing by a Man fully capable of the work and sustained by the Money to accomplish this purpose. Tho discoveries made within the past few weeks Are wonderful and important. The claim Iii Broad terms is that the first Telegraph Lino Iii the world for transmitting signals by electricity was erected in Brandon vt., by Thomas Dave port. Thomas Davenport was born in Brandon and was a brother of the late Hon. Barzilla Davenport who assisted Iris brother with Money in making some of his inventions while living in Brandon in connection with or. Halley who is still living to experimented considerably Writh electric appliances and or. He alleys a narrative Iii relation to these experiments i Given with great intelligence and detail. Long before pro. Morse had projected anything of this nature Davenport and Smalley had a wire erected that connected their two residences on which were transmitted despatches by Means of electricity using a Battery and w hich gave by machinery the sound now heard from machines in Ordinary use in Telegraph offices. After this wire had been in operation some time or. Davenport moved to new York and began the publication of the electro Magnet which was printed by a machine propelled by electro magnetic Force. As a paper extant declares upon its title Page. It was a Small four Page Sheet with tins title the electro Magnet. Rubl Ishiko by Thomas Davkd foot new York. 1s40. Titis Imper is printed Oil a machine run by mean of electro Magnet ism As Tho motive Power. While in new York prof. Morse called upon or. Davenport and was struck with his discovery and then began to make improvements thereon inventing the Morse alphabet. He then applied it to or. Davenport s discovery which has Grove such a Success. Recent i a i to Gat ton seems to indicate that it tile truth of history could lie revealed it would show that prof. Morse absorbed lie principle and theory of or. Davenport a invention Aud that Morse to Only tin heal inventor of the alphabet which to applied. It also has been proven that prof. Morse was not an inventor. He never invented anything that can lie shown either before or after tile application of tin alphabet to the magnetic Telegraph. Thistle True while Honor belongs to prof. Morse for bringing before Tho Public the wonderful capabilities of telegraphy Tho discovery and origin of Hie Gle rapine instrument belongs to Thomas Davenport. Or. Davenport was also one of the very first men in the world to apply the dynamic Force of electricity to mechanical use. In the recent researches has been found the Model of a car. Propelled on rails by electric motors just As electric cars Ara propelled Iii tile streets of our cities today. This Model is known to have been made by or. Davenport and when found was As Bright Aud perfect As the Day he left it. This was found in the Possession of tile family of a Mechanic who worked with him. The facts when fully made known will show Thomas Davenport to have been one of tile greatest inventors of the age. Many letters and other manuscripts have been brought to Light in his family a Possession and else flier Iii tile past few weeks. Some of the descendant of the Davenport families Are still living in this and other communities among w Hom Are Rev. Willard Davenport. Hon. Henry f. Field state treasurer of Vermont col. Fred a. Field postmaster of Rutland and mrs. John d. Kingsbury of Bradford mass. One Way which is recommended for making bad men Good. Alderman Bienhauer says the Pittsburg dispatch has hit on a rather novel plan of re establishing Domestic Felicity in unhappy Homes by curing convivial husbands of drunkenness. His plan was unfolded in a conversation with a w Oman who wished to sue her husband for support. Pii Tell you How to cure him a said the Alderman. Quot you just do the same As lie does. If becomes Home and smashes furniture you take a poker and help him. If he swears you swear worse than he does. If he gets drunk you go and get drunk Trio. You can Stop him that Way Tor i have Given others the same advice and their husbands wilted and things were thereafter All right. A a t Short time ago a woman came to to and said her husband got drunk and raised a Row at Home. I told Lier to do till same and she said she would. After leaving my office she saw the barkeeper of tile Saloon Lier husband frequented and told him that if she came into the Saloon and asked for drink lie must not Stop her but do As she wanted. Quot the next evening she walked boldly into the Saloon where tier husband and Boon companions were ranged along Tho bar and said i say Fellows its mighty mean weather. Have a drink will you take one on me. Bartender give me a Good stiff whiskey. I want the a looking at tile men who stood aghast the woman said a what a up boys have a drink i say a and silo drained tile brimming Glass though it nearly choked her. Her husband came up to Lier and said Quot Why Mary a Fly Are you Here a a in Veas much right As you a replied the woman. A was a sequel to the Story the Man and wife left the Saloon together and die husband took a solemn vow never to touch liquor again. The couple Are now living very happily and it was better than a dozen when the Alderman finished his tale the woman said a a in la do the saute thing if it kills How flies die. An invisible enemy brings their buzzing career to a close. New York Ledger Elko Many other insects House flies Are subject to the attacks of a parasitic fungus which destroys great numbers of them especially towards the end of autumn. We sometimes see the corpses of such As have met this Fate glued to Tim window panes in tile attitude of life with legs widely spread and wings raised As if in preparation for flight but with a White Halo on the Glass All around them and with bodies Pale unhealthy looking and distended. The snores of Tim fungus which Are excessively minute and Are present in the air Are earned against the Fly a body and such As strike its under surface May become adherent when each spore sends out a Long tubular projection which penetrates tile skin and enter tile Baxly. Once Here its hosts doom is certain for it meets with suitable nourishment in the shape of the fluids of the Fly a body by Aid of which St will speedily propagate itself until its victim drained of its life support finally succumbs Tim threadlike tube first produces a series of detached rounded bodies something like the cells of Tim yeast Plant. These Ceils which have an indefinite Power of self a implication Are carried by the blood to All parts of the body and thus the disease spreads. They in their turn give Rise to a number of branching tubular threads similar to those of the earlier stage which in process of time penetrate the skin. Each thread which thus makes its appearance outside gives Rise to a sort of head which contains spores like those with a Tyjer the series started. Are cast off with considerable Force and multitudes of them no doubt perish while others Are ultimately wafted against the bodies of other flies to Deal destruction among them As among their predecessors. The particular species of fungus which makes havoc with the House flies is called eau Pisa muscle and is one of a group which Are distinguished by their habit of subsisting upon living insects. The Natura Tion of the fungus involves the death of Tho Fly the fluids of whose body serve As food for the parasite. Under its attack the Fly becomes gradually feebler and finally quite unable to move and then the Viscid secretion from the pads on the feet hardens and glues the insect to the surface to which it is clinging while the fungus spreads round it and leaves some of its spores adhering to form the Halo above described.
