The doctrines of Tolstoi Are undoubtedly making an impression upon the popular thought. The later books of this almost unique thinker have reached an enor Moas circulation in All civilized countries and it would be strange if they failed to make Many converts to the to Stoian theories. One of the outcomes of the russians reasoning about the vanity of earthly greatness and the pernicious Ness of what we Call civilization is the belief that every Able bodied Man 6honld labor with his own hands and a in the sweat of his brow to produce his own living direct from the soil. Tolstoi signifies agriculture above All other Means of earning a living and would have the artificial employments abandoned. A Aback to the land a is the cry of bus followers. Accordingly the count himself goes daily to the Fields and works with the peasants holding the plough and wielding the Hoe and the Hayfork. If to Stoian ideas continue to gain ground we May Hope to see agriculture looked upon with More favor and the unhealthy Rush to the cities in a measure checked. Perhaps Tolstoi a disciples May yet solve the problem of new England a deserted farms who knows the migratory trait. The report of the 8tate Board of lunacy and Charity As to immigration into Massachusetts during the past year offers a very interesting study of the Law of the distribution of population in our composite civilization. The nativity of immigrants arriving at All Massachusetts ports was As follows ireland.11,182 England. 7,466 Wale. 28 Scotland. 1,725 germany., .327 Krai inc.,. 66 Kula .1,872 Poland .882 Switzerland. 4 Sweden. 4,61 Norway. 1.428 Belgium. A Italy. Ain. 30 7 40 293 22 70 i 6 i 8 to Portugal Denmark. Hungary. A nutria. China Australia. Turkey. Greece. British ,781 another countries. 2,152 Holland one of the prominent traits of the Anglo Saxon race is the migratory. In 1640 the Drift of immigration from England 6et in so strongly and continued so steadily that it was believed the population of new England would double itself every 25 years during that Century and it was estimated that by 1850 new England would boast of a population of Over 7,000,000. Yet even today the population is less than 5,000,000. The restless englishman had no sooner got a foothold on the rugged Hills of new England than in spite of All obstacles he began to push Westward. No sooner had he made for himself a comfortable abiding place in the Ohio Valley than he was again unsatisfied and pushed farther Westward and northward. The National trait which sends an English ship to every Harbor on the Earth and an English shopkeeper to every Nook where anybody can be found civilized enough to Trade has put the stamp of new England upon every Community in this country from Plymouth Bay to the Golden Gate. Those nations which possess the migratory trait most prominently possess along with it Tho greatest adaptability to climatic conditions. English and German colonies skirt the rugged regions of Patagonia and carry on Trade in the equatorial furnaces of Africa. The Southern nations decline to part company with their native Home conditions and have a tendency to mass together. Of the 200,000 emigrants who left Italy last year it will be seen that Only 20 Are reported As Landing in Massachusetts ports. Tho distribution of population Over the Earth is fixed by Laws Asin mutable As those concerning the tides of the Ocean. Open up a new continent and the great migratory races if not the first to get there Are the ones sure to drive Down the first stakes in its unexplored and unsettled sections. It is the migratory trait along with the terrible grip which holds on to what has been once seized that seems to have marked out the Anglo Saxon and German races As the ruling forces of the future. He who watches the steady Drift of social forces rolling into this country from year to year both in population Aud invested capital finds Fuller and Fuller confirmation of the fact. J. B. Plummer. The extinction of animals. A startling publication on the rapid extinction of the aboriginal animals of this continent is about being issued by the smithsonian Institute at Washington. The Buffalo has already become practically extinct within the present generation. It was Only a few years ago that the a passenger Pigeon Quot flew by millions in the Ohio Valley but there Are now but few of them left and they will soon be extinct. Domestication has alone saved the native american Turkey from utter extinction. Tile great Arctic sea cow which was found in great numbers by Behring a expedition in 1741, is no More. Only go years ago that proud seabird the american Auk flew in countless numbers off the coast it Newfoundland. A single Shell of one of these Birds was lately sold at auction for $1500. The last member of this once prolific tribe has fallen under the Hunters Rifle. The Beautiful Labrador Duck is no More also the last specimen of it having i been seen in 1870. Of the few aboriginal animals that still survive it is Only a question of a comparatively Short time before they will be extinct. That Tho Seal is doomed is Well understood. Last Vear 875.000 hair seals were slash tired for leather and Oil in Behring sea. Even Tho alligators Are not stored. They too. Must soon disappear under the increasing demand for reticule pocketbooks and other Faucy articles. Meanwhile a zealous Chase is kept up for the Birds of the air and every creeping thing that can to Modo to adorn fashion and luxury. The same mania is rampant All Over the world for Tho extermination of Tho animal tribes. Tho elephant is boing killed in Africa for its Ivory at a rate which will soon exterminate him. Before half a Century has passed the Huntsman will stand alone Over the completed extermination with nothing to shoot at but the human race. There is something sad in nil this. Half the fascination of books of travel will depart when the wild Hills and forests and the ragged coasts sit cold in their desolation. With no living thing to animate them. And what is it All for largely to gratify Idle fashion the vanity of ornament and the Wanton passion of the Huntsman for killing. It is High time that Congress should step in and erect some Barrier against unreasoning greed and the Wanton Slaughter of the few native animals that still survive. It will soon be too late.

In the year 1843 or the year 1844 i introduced two Bills in the Massachusetts House of representatives. By one of those Bills it was provided that the tax on mortgaged real estate should be divided in the assessment Between the Mortgagor and the mortgagee the latter to be assessed for the amount of his claim and the former for the value of the equity. At that time the Legal rate of interest was 6 per cent., and any higher rate was treated As usurious. It was Tho object of the proposed measure to relieve mortgaged real estate from a portion of the Burden and thus indirectly to relieve Tho debtor class and upon the ground that while All property should be once taxed there should be no double taxation As was the Case where the owners of mortgaged estates paid a tax upon the full value and the creditor paid a tax upon the amount of the mortgage. After a delay of More than thirty years the measure was recognized by statute. The Kindred measure was a Bill to reduce the poll tax to fifty cents. My speech in defence of the Bill was directed against the system As a Public policy but As it could Only be annulled by an amendment to the Constitution. I thought it Wiser to invoke the Aid of the legislature in securing a reduction to a sum so Small that it would be no impediment to the free exercise of the highest political privilege of a Freeman the privilege of voting without constraint dictation or control from any source whatsoever. My remarks upon the poll tax Bill and the mortgage Bill were reported by or. Thomas Gill and printed in the Post or. Gish reported by words Only but he was Able always to give the substance and often the language of the debate with singular accuracy. For those Days he was a chief among reporters and for genial humor and a ready wit which both amused and annoyed the subjects of it he was without a rival. In this Long interval my opinion of the a Wisdom of the poll tax As a prerequisite to the exercise of the right to vote has been strengthened rather than weakened by Tho teaching of events. It May be claimed and with a fair How of Justice that every Man should contribute something to the Public burdens inasmuch As free schools roads Aud Bridgeo Are for the Benefit of All and equally and without regard to the incident of property but the right to vote should not depend upon the payment of a tax whether levied upon the person or upon the property of the person. This View has received the Sanction of a great majority of american states and the conservatism of Massachusetts in this particular and the requirement of an educational qualification have been set up As defences against the demand made upon states of the South in which Large classes of american citizens Are treated As aliens. Neither ignorance of those attainments that the world Calls learning nor poverty nor color nor race should be treated As Marks or evidences of inferiority when Only the fact of citizenship is the subject of inquiry or action. When Tho state or the nation demands enforced service none of these facts or conditions can be pleaded effectually. At present the danger is greater by unmeasured Odds from the use of Money in elections by men who have Money than from the exercise of the voting Power by men who have no Money. Geo. S. Boutwell. The Indian in civilization. Ina comprehensive analysis of the pre dominant race traits of the american indians w. Ii. Ii. Murray in the new York world outlines a figure that is but Little appreciated by the civilization which even today owes much of its character and Many of its daily comforts to it. The Indian is first of All deeply imbued with the idea of the Home. To him an eviction is treason to the first Conception of social Liberty. It was to preserve the Home As the basis of society that his fathers denied the right to sell land. Quot sell a country a indignantly exclaimed Tecumseh when protesting against the Sale of lands to the Whites. Quot Why not sell the air the Clouds the sea As Well As the Earth did not the great spirit make them All for his children Quot Michael Davitt Henry George Herbert Spencer and Many other opponents of the British system of land tenure have frequently quoted the old Indian chiefs and accorded them the credit of being the original land reformers who first imbued europeans with the idea of the natural right of the people to the soil. It is this Conception of Man s inalienable right to the soil that makes the Indian of All races abhor the idea of becoming dependent the Modem question Wlinich is now agitating the methodists presbyterians and other bodies As to the right of women to take part in their councils was As or. Murray reminds us. Long ago settled by the indians. The squaws have been permitted to take part in All their deliberations on an equal footing. An englishman surprised at this. Asked a Conestoga chief Why they permitted their women to take part in their councils and received the prompt reply Quot because some women Are Wiser than some the Indian s Ideal of government was a Commonwealth in which old and Young male and female weak and Strong had a voice. It was natural government after natural rights to the soil Aud to Tho original bounties of nature had been conceded As against hereditary rights such As were imbued in the minds of europeans. Sir Henry Maine John Stuart Mill and other great thinkers on the original social prerogatives which inhere in the individual have always referred to the american indians As one of the most advanced of the aboriginal races. And what As or. Murray suggests do we new englander not owe to the indians in the Lino of our daily comforts to them to owe Tho com which grows in our Fields. It was they who invented the Johnny cake Tho Hominy the succotash the Hoe cake the Gruel for the sick and the Popcorn which delights Tho Little ones. It was the Indian who first introduced the pumpkin the Squash and Tho Melon to Tho new England Farmer. Last but not least it is to the Indian that Boston owes its baked Beans for the Indian women first cooked them in their Earthern jars for Tho great Council feasts and the original bostonian having been invited to partake did eat was filled and carried a Sample Home to be duplicated by his wife. It is impossible for a Broad and humane Man to join in the cry of Tho Western Cowboy the land Speculator a Detho ignorant adventurer that the Indian is a no Good a cannot be civilized and should be worried to the grave As an outcast. History shows that this race first impressed upon europeans the integrity of Tho Home the right of the people to the soil the Equality of woman in Public councils Anil Faith in the great common weal til of humanity. Is such a race lost or have we ourselves been sadly lost to a sense of Justice and humanity in our treatment of it Nathan Converse raiment of mourning. New York Jan. 24.-hitherto we have considered Only Tho costumes bonnets and wraps which belong to those periods when life May indeed be Quot a fleeting show a but nevertheless one which is More or less cheerful and when the wearers hearts Are Light enough to go through with the everyday routine. But sooner or later there comes to us All a time when we have to realize that death and the grave Are factors not to to ignored in our programme til at Thoro is something besides Sunshine and roses and laughter in each lot. Then it is we Are obliged though reluctantly to give thought to Tho livery of woe to that sombre raiment of Crape and Cash Mere which however May to made stylish and becoming As Well As appropriate to the circumstances of our loss.

The conventional kind such As you see in pictures. Not the Best. Popular science monthly the conventional Shetland Pony the animal represented in picture books namely about 40 to 44 inches High very tight jointed and with an impossible growth of hair All Over him is just about As bad a Type of this famous race As can Well be imagined. From his build he is generally Short winded and thoroughly impracticable in his paces. A South Mainland specimen on the other hand Long and rakish in build hard grown As the saying is and clean climbed will far surpass his companion in staying Power. One of this Hardy Breed in our opinion the Ideal Shetland Pony has been known to travel from Samburg to Lerwick and Back the same Day with a tolerably heavy Riding weight say66 Miles altogether of extremely Hilly Road. But minor differences apart there Are certain characteristics unfailing tests in their Way with the experienced Ludgey which Goto the Quot make up of a Shetland As distinguished from an Iceland or Faroe Pony a. G., a certain unmistakable breadth of build set of patterns and More particularly. An apathetic air which no other Breed possesses. Your Quot Sheltie is not a Quick animal is inclined to be sleepy rather than otherwise in his is and is a3 a Rule disposed to no More than he can help in the Way of exertion though if put to it great Power of endurance an _ through an immense amount of work for his size. The Iceland variety is All rather in sales and is a3 a Rule disposed to o no More than he can help in the Way of exertion though if put to it he evinces great Power of endurance and will go Ough an immense amount of Wor e. The Iceland variety is Altoga Perior Shorter lived narrower in build and generally fallacious but with All this he is quicker livelier and lacks that air of pensive melancholy which haunts every Shetland Pony. Our advice is to avoid the inferior animal however highly recommended. Their Price is roughly sneaking about Naif that of the she Lander but the Money is ill saved. The average life of an icelander is about 12 or 13 years while the other will live to 25 or even More. The British and the mince pie. New York times Quot i almost wonder a says a lady who passed her holidays in England Quot How our British cousins survive a succession of christmases. They could not i believe if they did not come 12 months apart. The generous preparations in the Way of feasting were a Surprise to to for which even the Well stocked thanksgiving larders of my new England childhood a Nome did not prepare me. Fancy 150 or 200 mince pies by Way of one item this is by no Means an unusual number for an English country family to put in Stock. Many of them of course Are Given away All the children of the Village who come to Tho House to offer wishes for a merry Christmas expect and receive a pie. Quot the pies Are about Saucer size and deeper than the average american pie and what will interest american housekeepers is that they Are made without meat. Minco meat without meat is a Paradox but such is the English compound. It is very Rich however with suet fruit and liquor. An English mince pie is something to remember delicious beyond description. Then the Plum puddings in be made so called English Plum puddings All my life but until i ate of them on their native Heath i did t know the delicacy. Quot these Are made and parboiled fully three months before and Are Hung up in bags till needed. By this method tile Rich ingredients become thoroughly amalgamated and Tho flavor is vastly improved. Tile final cooking occurs the Day of use and the pudding comes to the table piping hot studded with blanched almonds Ana blazing with burning Cognac. A dozen to 15 puddings comfortably carries a family through tin twelfth night. Why they never speak. New Tork Herald America is not Tho Only country in which Fortune tellers flourish. In Europe they also thrive As will be seen by the following incident near Beauvais there lives a family the members of which it is said have never spoken to each other. Several years ago a local sorcerer informed the head of the family that if he and his wife and daughter would keep silence during their lives they would in course of time inherit a Large Fortune. The husband communicated this Happy intelligence in writing to his wife and she informed her daughter and so for several years Tho three lived together dumb As oysters. Recently however the two women found life unbearable under such conditions and resolved to ask the Fortune Teller for permission to use their tongues if Only at rare intervals. At this suggestion the Prophet was inexpressibly shocked but seeing that the women were unable to overcome their natural love of to Quality he finally granted them permission to talk to each other outside the town boundaries. The result in that Tho Mother and daughter continue to keen silence Iii Tho House hut Start every tuesday for Tournay where they enjoy a Long healthy Chat. Tile husband and father remains silent at Home and As lie has not asked the Prophet to show Hun any favors it is evident that he prefers silence to speech. Hei confident also that he will some Day inherit the Large Fortune and this Hope sustains him in his silent solitary ufos. For a Young lady. In the first to have a Graceful costume of Black Henrietta with Lengthwise bands of Crape on the skirt. The coat Basque opens Over a folded Vest with Crape Collar and Pastron.

They really do catch at straws and ask for their hats. Detroit free Presa yes a said an old Lake Captain a a drowning Man will catch at a Straw. I have seen Many illustrations thereof. Most people think the old proverb is a Mere figure of speech but it is a living Quot is it True Captain a was asked Quot that the first thing a rescued Man thinks of is his hat a a yes sir a replied the Captain his face lighting up Quot that a a fact too. I have seen it emphasized Many times in the course of my experience. Quot Over and Over again i have been called to the assistance of a drowning Man i we Ould plunge in and Rescue him just let us say at the last instant. Dragged on Tho Dock gasping for breath his voice choked with water the Man if he follows his instincts will As soon As he gains the least degree of strength suddenly Rise from his prostrate posture and stretch his arms towards his head then missing his hat usually lost in the struggle he will cry out desperately pointing to his hat floating Down the River a of save my hat save my hat a a rules for Good health.

Curious methods of extending the sphere of its influence. Charles Morris in popular science monthly Snow has several curious methods of extending Tho sphere of it hostile influence. The comparatively Light snows which fall in oui latitude Are of minor importance Pince they readily yield to the Early Spring sunbeams. They Are in some degree beneficial to the Fertile surface and protective to its More tender annual plants while their Only important Adverse effect is the dangerous flooding of the Rivers due to their rapid melting. But the deep and persistent snows of Northern regions Are far More exhaustive of solar heat and reduce the agricultural seasons of those regions to a dangerously Short period. In their melting also Tho surface air is chilled and winds from the North convey this chilled air far to the South thus spreading widely Over the warmer zones the Frost inducing influence of the melting snows. We have seen How the Tropic heats Are carried toward the poles by winds and Waters. The frigid cold is carried toward the tropics by the same agencies Chil de winds and cold Ocean currents. It is carried by another agent of great importance Tho direct creep of the Snow itself toward the lower latitudes. The Agency has once perhaps Many times produced an extraordinary effect upon the surface of the Earth one far surpassing that of volcanic explosions and lava outflows in its Adverse influence. At present this glacial action is greatly reduced but is still of much importance. _ Happy though a Queen. Little Wilhelmina has dolls and pigeons to love. The Little Wilhelmina. Queen of Holland.
