Most of the country women if they have Ever Given a thought to the subject have supposed that this White Wax was some refined product of Ordinary beeswax an article that has about it the conditions of healthiness and cleanliness which is More than can be said of exudation of insects due to some bodily malady. These flies become diseased from feeding on leaves or p particular kind of Evergreen tree or Shrub of which they Are exceedingly fond. The twigs of these Trees in certain seasons of Tho year Are thickly covered with flies which in time leave upon them a thick encrustation of White matter. When this has increased to a suffice it size the Branch is Cut off and immersed in boiling water which causes the Wax to come to the surface in the shape of a Viscid substance which is skimmed off cleansed and afterwards allowed to Cool in pans.

The fierce fires of a july Sunset had burned themselves away in a shimmering heat and with the fervid Sunset bad come do breath of fresh air to give Promise Ofa Cool and refreshing night or a less sweltering Day on the Morrow. In the Marble a moored corridor of mrs. Isabelle Sydney a City residence several trunks stood strapped and piled ready for the sex Pressman a cart the first thing in the morning and in mrs. Sydney a boudoir a Large Beautiful room that was the perfection of tasteful luxury that lady sat in a open Bamboo rocking chair languidly fanning herself. She was handsome decidedly from the Little Wavy tresses of Rich Bronze Brown hair that the hot weather Only made the Wavier to the tiny toe of her Blue Rosette Slipper that rested easily on Tho persian Silken Bassock that was partly concealed by the Billowy foam of lace and Lawn upon the train other Robe de Chambre. Very handsome very imperious very Rich and influential in the Circle in which she moved a woman who had Ever since she married air. Sydney of the great firm of Sydney amp Force Bankers and brokers been accustomed to say a do this do that a and to be obeyed. And to night with the Silver and Crystal Pitcher of iced Orange de on i he Marble stand at her Side the Gas burning softly and brightly inside Tho Silvery Pink Globe directly at her shoulder an open novel freshly Cut awaiting her Royal pleasure to become interested. Lying across her Snow White Lap one would have known Liat Isabelle Sydney was one accustomed to personal ease and self gratification. But somehow she seemed in no haste to begin Reading delightful As she knew by Rich experience the author invariably was she leaned Back in her chair and waved her fan slowly gracefully As she did everything and then quietly arose Anil stepped to the Telephone and delivered a Low spoken message. About five minutes afterwards Marion Day came in the room with her Wiite Zephyr shawl Over her Arm a wide rimmed Gypsey hat on her Lovely rippling hair looking like a in her Cool Gray Linen dress and Linen Collar and cuffs. Marion Day daily governess at two Hundred and fifty dollars a year to the Sydney children Airlee and Marguerite five and seven whom she had just kissed Good Bye until to Weir return from their six weeks stay at the Seaside and mountains. Mrs. Sydney raised her eyebrows in acknowledgement of Marion a presence. A you were just going miss Marguerite and miss Aimee Are retired 1 suppose miss Day p i sent Lor you As it will be necessary for me to keep you later than usual ibis a look of Consler Alion instantly came into a Larioni a face. Quot i am afraid i cannot stay to night mrs. Sydney. I live already been detained nearly an hour beyond Ray time and my Mother is very much worse airs. Sydney Laid her fan Down on the table a movement that somehow be minded met Arion that this Rich haughty woman a will was her Law. A i am very sorry of course that your rather is worse but really amiss Day i can not see that i should to obliged to suffer on that account. I am particularly anxious that you should write out a form of Light Stu ill for your pupils to follow while they Are away. You can remain and have the use of or. Sydney a Library until half past Mue of clock. Marion looked Pale and dismayed As she listened. A How can i leave her any longer she is dangerously ill. Airs Quot. Sydney. She May to dying alone a a that is nonsense consumptive never die in summer time. We will be gone to Morrow and you can devote yourself exclusively to her until september. You really must abandon your fanciful objection and remain. Miss Day or else a a Swift came into her Low even tones and Marion a heart throbbed with a sense of horrible cruelty. She could not restrain a tear choked sob. A but mrs. Sydney it a airs. Sydney bowed crushingly. A you will bring this disgraceful scene to an end. Miss Day either remain and perform the duly i require of you and which cannot be postponed or you resign your position As governess and forfeit your last quarters salary. You have your Choice a poor Marion for one Little moment she wondered if there was a heart in mrs. Sydney a bosom then with the cruel practicality that governed All her life in these latter Days she remembered How ill she could afford to forfeit a Dollar other Well earned wages Money that was even then needed to buy Cooling fruit and Cooling drink and the Medicine to alleviate the agonies of that Darling patient Mother who was slipping further and further away. What ought she to do a what ought she to do it went up from her quivering lips in a wild. Sent prayer and then she looked in mrs. Sydney a cold handsome face with the despair a criminal might feel before a judge. And she walked trembling by into the Library and Laid aside her hat and shawl and sat there at the Long Green cloth bound table warm Tiren heartsick heart sore Lull of fear and apprehension and wrote the necessary schedule for her mistress and at ten of clock of that breathless july night started for the wretched close Little suite of rooms that nowadays was a a Home to her. To stumble up the dark hot stairway to go in the room lighted Only by gods stars and Whei she spoke to her Mother to receive do answering response and to know in that next awol minute that dear patient unselfish Mother had died a alone All alone some time that sweltering Day All alone ? nay for surely gods Angels had been Given charge concerning her. Bat kneeling with rigid face and dilated eyes and breaking heart beside three Days later or. Sydney ran Down to Long Branch to stay Over sunday. It suppose you Haven to heard that Days Mother is dead buried yesterday ? died the Day before you left Home that scorch Nir hot and for once at least in her selfish pleasure seeking like Isabelle Sydney Siace blanched and a terrified feeling swept Over her that was several minutes 1 miscellany. Laziness grows in people it begins in cobwebs and ends in chains. In character in manners in style in All things the supreme excellence is simplicity. A a a Friendship is the Medicine for All misfortune but ingratitude dries up the Fountain of All goodness. In its passage. A seven years Quot with their Wii Tertul changes to some their steady flow to others their sorrows and Joys their Reward and punishment to All. And mrs. Stanley Sheridan sitting in the Nursery of her most magnificent Palace in san Francisco with her three Little ones around her thought How Good How wondrously Good a god had been to her in All ways concerning. She was sitting in a great easy chair sacred to Mamma by every body from grave Stern papa Down to two year old Clifford the pet and Darling of the household a quiet faced Lovely woman with Serene patience in her eyes and tender Mothe Liness on her lightly closed lips As she Smied Back in Ethel a face Ethel her firstborn a merry saucy girl of six years who was puckering her forehead into a frown of pretended dismay. A not course we Shane to like her Mamma 1 know we Shane to Olive Redith Lynn a governess is a horribly Cross lady. She makes Olive go Over and Over her arithmetic lesson it its a and because olives governess is so strict you Are determined that your new governess that papa will bring from new York to Day will be strict too indeed my child i think i shall have to Tell mrs. Sheldon that a her name to make a certain Little lady Ethel know go Over Lier grammar exercises. A but if she a hateful Mamma a and Ethel leaned confiding by against her mothers chair. A a Mamma you Wasny to title jul when you were a governess were you ? Tell us Over again All about it How Liat wicked lady Wou Iii t let you go Home until poor grandma was dead a and the child a Sweet eyes grew Lender and misty Over the Well known Over touching Story of the time when Beautiful Mamma was Only a poor governess in mrs Sydney a House in those Days those lonely pitiful Days before , met loved and married her. And almost before the Little Story was told papa a tall handsome gentleman grave and Stern everywhere but it Nome came in on return from the East to be smothered with childish hugs and kisses and Greet ii by Mamma with All her bean in her eyes. A and the new governess come papa a Ethel asked eagerly. A she has come Little girl and is waiting for Niam Raa to see her. Shall she come in Here Marion my dear. And so the servant was sent to usher her in and As airs. Sheridan caught the first glimpse of the slender Black Robed figure with the sad trouble marked , she could not refrain trom the exclamation of amazement and almost alarm that rushed to her lips. A can it be possible airs. Sydney a while Isabelle Sheldon whose first husband had died of brain fever a month after the stupendous failure that Lett wife and children absolutely penniless and who had married again three years Laler to be deserted by the wretch whom the Law declared her lord and master her petted Darlings Laid away in Mere Ifill sleep Isabelle Sheldon made a Little Low moan of horrified Surprise and dismay. A Marion Day Marion Day you will not want me Lor your children a Ami sinking in a chair she Bur amp to in-.0 tears tasting to the very bitterest Dregs the cup she had once forced to this Sweet gentle woman slips. While Clarion who had prayed at her mothers death bed that heaven would avenge her went up to the trembling crying woman As an Angel might go Toa soul crouching outside the Gates of Paradise. A we All need forgiveness mrs. Sheldon. Why should i judge you ? Ethel ring for Alarie to show your governess her room. You must be tired after your Long journey and lessons need not begin for two or three a i thanked god every mile of the Way that he had at last sent me a Friend. It was my Only Hope against despair. 1 should have starved ind to find it was you 1 Marion Day you Are one of god s chosen if there Ever was tuis True secret of living at peace with All the world is to have an Humble opinion of ourselves. It is not when you feel Best that you Are Best but when you suffer most and most patiently under trials and mis fortunes. The Humble Man though surrounded with the scorn and reproach of the world is still in peace for the stability of peace Roteth not upon the world but upon god. Ltd a. A Point made by or. Aboody during the recent conference at Northfield was that a Man does not need to be Rich to worship Money. Some poor men make a god of their Little. False happiness renders men Stern and proud and that happiness is never communicated. True happiness renders them kind and sensible and that happiness is always shared. It never yet happened to any Man since the beginning of the world nor Ever will to have All things according to desire or to whom Fortune was never opposite or Adverse. Chinese every one sweep the Snow from own door and not Busy himself about the Frost on neighbors tiles. Great wealth comes by destiny moderate wealth by Industry. The ripest fruit will not Tail into your Mouth. The pleasure of doing Good is the Only one that does not Wear out. If your Lite has been so irreproachable As to leave your enemy no Opportunity for detraction without inventing a calumny against you consider what a Comfort it is that malice cannot Hurt you without the Aid of falsehood and where this is the Case you May Trust to the fairness of your character to Clear itself in the end. A terrible Valley of death a spot almost As terrible As the prophets Valley of dry Bones lies just North of the old mormon Road to californian a Region thirty Miles Long by thirty Broad and surrounded except at two Points by inaccessible mountains. It is totally devoid of water and vegetation and the Shadow of Bird or Wiki beast never darkens its White glaring Sands. The Kansas Pacific Ivai Road engineers discovered it and also some papers which show the Fate of the a lost Montgomery train a which came South from Salt Lake in 1850, guided by Aai Ormon. When near deaths Valley some come to the conclusion that the mormons knew nothing about the country so they appointed one of their number a Leader and broke off from their party. The Leader turned due West so with the people and wagons and flocks he travelled three Days and then descended into the Broad Valley whose treacherous Mirage promised water. They reached the Centre but Only the White Sand bounded by scorching peaks met their gaze around the Valley they wandered and one by one the men died and the panting flocks stretched themselves in death under the hot Sun. Then the children crying for water died at their mothers breast and with swollen tongues Anc burning vitals the mothers followed Wagon after Wagon was abandoned and Strong men tottered and raved and died. After a weeks wandering dozen survivors found some water in the hollow of a Mountain. It lasted Short time when All perished but two who escaped out of the Valley and lol Lowed the Trail of their former compan ions. Eighty seven families with Bun Dredson animals perished Here Anc now alter Twenty two years Tho wagons stand still Complete the Iron works Anc tires Are Bright and the shrivelled skeletons lie Side by Francisco Call. One in and As Slie passed by her on her Way to her room she caught airs Sheridan a hand and kissed it reverently. Nor Ever again did either of them refer to that dark slain of the past while Marion with her husbands tender and True arms about her listed a grave saintly face to As she stood near their boys crib that night and knew she had approbation and another a. St. Bernard and its an hour before the hospice was reached the Snow was so deep and so soft that males could not struggle through it and the riders were obliged to walk. A heavy Mist settled Down upon us and a Light Snow been to fall and nothing More was needed to convince us How easily tired travellers in much severer weather might be overcome with fatigue and Reboiro the attention of rescuers from above. But we were fresh and Young the Snow bore us and in a few minutes our guide led us through the open doorway of the hospice. Four Largo dogs immediately ran towards us with looks of inquiry. They received As Friendly a patting As though they had been the acquaintance of years. Our guide now rung a Bell to which a kindly faced priest responded. Bowing us a cheerful Welcome without one word of questioning concerning her Faith our purpose in Lite or our Home he conducted us to the in Odds which were to be our resting place for the Sabbath. We were among the monks and dogs of St. Jernard of the first there Are 17 now residing in the hospice. In the Winter the number is usually 13. The brotherhood consists of 40 members in All. Besides those of the hospice of St. Bernard there Are others in the similar hospice of the Simpson pass while the aged and infirm dwell in an Asylum at Martigny. I was surprised at the youth of the 17 whom we saw. The pictures had always represented them As men of Middle life or even advanced years. Instead they were All Young. Inquiry soon revealed the tact that the members enter the brotherhood As Early As their 18th year and that the cold and generally exposure is so trying that they so on grow weak and aged men cannot be Sie monks of St. Bernard for there Are no Active aged men in i hair order. Attendance at the Chapel Scitico confirmed this statement concerning the trying nature of life in this highest habitation of Europe. Wrapped in the heaviest of Winter clothing and covered with rugs we shivering by watched the fathers in their devotions. All seemed to be affected with colds the precursors of their great enemies rheumatism and consumption and still three times a Day they performed service As a body in that Chapel dressed in the Ordinary walking Gar ments of priests and whenever i went in at other hours than those of regular service some of the Brothers were kneeling on the Stone floor engaged in private Devotion. The present Superior has endured the privations and the cold for 18 years. It will not be Long before he will retire and to retire Al to the age of 40 or 45, would seem most men retiring at the prime of like a strange less astonishing than or. Tannei is recent feat of fasting is the condition of a Young lady the daughter of the mayor of Gra alike a Village near Bremen who is said to have been fast asleep since the second week in january with the exception of a few hours of Semi wakefulness at intervals of irom six to eight weeks. It appears that she lies plunged in a profound slumber and entirely unconscious of All that goes on around her night and Day reclining on her right Side warmly covered up and with a Light Gauze spread Over her head. Nourishment chiefly in a liquid form is daily administered to her which she swallows without awaking fora second. She is a pretty slender girl of a pallid complexion but she does not lose in weight during her trances of from Lorty to sixty Days and when awake exhibits a cheerful disposition and an eager desire to perform Squall household tasks As her strength enables her to fulfil. Her father is a Well to do Man who has consulted several eminent medical men in the Hope of discovering some remedy for daughters abnormal condition which entails serious inconvenience and constant anxiety upon the other members of family but All efforts hitherto made to keep the unlucky girl awake have resulted in total failure. Since the Case of the sleeping Uhlan at Potsdam no such interesting subject for study and observation on the part of the faculty has Arisen As that of the strangely somnolent burgomaster a daughter of Telegraph. Those Gold bearing Lave just seen your dispatch from san Francisco in saturdays evening Post about a Gold in solutions in the Calis Toga Springs and about the proprietors Laving a extracted $1060 in Gold of the utmost fineness trom 10 barrels o water during the past fortnight by a process known Only to himself. This vill Surprise Many of your readers but does not Surprise me for i once owned those Springs myself. What does Surprise me however is the falling off in the Richness of the water. In my time the yield was $1 a dipper tul. I am not saying this to injure the property in Case a Sale is contemplated 1 am Only saying it in the interest o history. It May be that this Hole proprietors process is an inferior one yes that May be the fault. Mine was to Lake my Uncle i had an Extin a Uncle at that time on account of Bis parents dying and leaving on my hands and till up and let stand 15 minutes to give the water a Chance to Settle Well then insert in an exhausted receiver which had the effect of sucking the Gold out through pores. I have taken More than $11,000 out of that old Man in a Day and halt. I should have held on to those Springs but for the baldness of the roads and the difficulty of getting the Gold to Market. 1 consider that Gold yielding water in Many respects remarkable and yet not More remarkable than the Gold bearing air of catgut Canon up there to wart the head of the aur Ferous Range. This air or this wind for it is a kind of Trade wind which blows steadily Down through 600 Miles of Rich Quartz crop pings during an hour and a Quarter every Day except sundays is heavy charged with exquisitely Fine and impalpable Gold. Nothing precipitates and solidifies this Gold so readily As Contact with human flesh heated by passion. The time that we. Grabara was disappointed in Why a used to step out doors when that wind was blowing and come in again and begin to sigh and brother Andover j. Koukl extract Over a Dollar and a half out of every sigh be sighed right along and the time that John la Orbison and Aleck Norton quarrelled about har Bison a dog they stood there swearing at each other All they knew How and what they done to know about swearing they learn irom you and me not by a Good deals and at the end of every three or four minutes they had to Stop and make a dividend if they did their jaws would clog up so that they get the big nine syllables ones out at All and when the wind was done blowing they cleaned up just a lit $1600 apiece. I know these facts to be absolutely True because i got them from a Man whose Mother i knew personally. I do not suppose a person could buy a water privilege at Calistoga now at any Price but several Good locations along the course of the catgut Canon Gold bearing Trad wind Are Tor Sale. They Are going to be stocked for the new York Market. They will sell too the people will swarm for them As thick As Hancock veterans in the South. the whole sea is our times a Day subject to a change in to level by the movements of Tho tules. Tho motion produced by the winds and known by the name of Waves is much less regular. The wind striking the surface of the sea in an oblique direction pushes some of the water on the surface Over that which is contiguous to it and thus raises it above Tho common level until so much water is accumulated that the wind is unable to maintain it in that position and it Falls Down. Each wave presents a gently ascending surface to the Windward and a particular descent Leeward. The Elevation of the Waves varies according to the strength of Tho wind a rather heavy Gale vises them Iroini to eight feet above the common sea level but in very Strong gales they attain an Elevation of thirty feet. This motion of the surface of the sea is not perceptible to a great depth. In Ilio strongest gales it is supposed not to ext Nii beyond seventy two feet below the surface and at a depth of ninety feet the sea is perfectly still. The form and even the size of the Waves vary according to the depth and extent of the sea. In shallow water where the lower part of the Waves approaches the Bottom and meets with resistance the Waves Are abrupt and irregular and this is also the Daso in confined seas whilst on the open Ocean they arc wide and Long and Rise and fail with great regularity. When Tho Waves run to a slow Shore the slope of Tho ground Breaks their Force and they terminate in a tranquil i Siiner but when they Are impelled against an elevated Rocky coast being repelled by the Rock they produce what is called a surf. This evident rising of the sea on a Rocky coast sometimes attains an Elevation of one Hundred feet above the sea level. The surf is always dangerous to pass except in boats of a Peculiar construction. The Waves do not subside simultaneously with the wind. The sea continues in its agitated state for Many hours.
