New York Ledger beyond the fact that the leeches used in medical practice Are costly Little Black reptiles with a furious appetite Foj blood few of us know much about them. Leech Cabiling is however quite an extensive business in some parts of France is pain Italy Russia and England and of late years Bas been prosecuted on a Large scale in the Valley of the Nile and Australia. The process of taking them is neither healthful nor agreeable. Leeches Avreet stagnant and shallow Waters and wherever they abound there is sure to be plenty of intermittent fever. In catching them the Levitical Law of a blood for blood is literally fulfilled. The Fishers Wade into the pools with naked legs and As fast As the creatures bite they pick them off and Deposit them in bags strapped round the Waist like the anglers toe Leech Catcher is always a deplorable looking object hollow eyed livid Aud emaciated. Halt the life is in fact drained out of him by the Succubi which furnish Quot Bim with his daily bread. He Sells them by the pounds and the average number of leeches to the Pound being about 700. The wholesale Leech merchant however disposes of them by number to the retailer realizing too or 200 per cent on first Cost and the retailer puts on at least too per cent More so that by the time they reach the sick room they Are very expensive articles. The wholesale merchant pays 2c or so apiece for Bis leeches the invalid to whom they Are applied from 20o to $1, according to the Supply of blood suckers in the Market. In France the Leech Ponds and marshes Are frequently Farmed out to speculators at a annual rental and the lessees employ Large numbers of men As Fishers. Most of these poor Fellows die prematurely either from loss of blood or from the effects of Miasma. In this Way hundreds of healthy men Are sacrificed that the sick May be relieved. If the Homeopath its Are right the game is not Worth the Candle. Paris is the great Market for these unpleasant looking vernaculars. At Gentilly near that City there is an establishment furnished with reservoirs 50 feet Long by 30 feet wide the Bottoms of which Are of unctuous Blay. In these receptacles immense quantities of leeches Are kept at All seasons of the year. The entire Supply furnished annually by Europe Asia Egypt and Australia is Estira ted at about 20,000,000. For exportation they Are usually placed Iii tubs Hali filled with Clay and covered with wire Gauze. There is no Scarcity of leeches in this country As every boy who his been la the habit of bathing in our Reeh water streams and Pouds is Well aware but the common american a blood sucker is not the Leech of the Materia medics although it is sometimes used As a Deal event when the Jette kind is Unur curable. Upon the whole it is quite probable that the world is leeches As Well As governed a Over much a cheap Safe Aud reliable. For members Only. T. B. Johnson Secretary.

In. Wednesday september 2nd. The funeral services will be conducted by the Rev. W. W. Pinson of the Paine methodist Church Ducatt in girls abroad. From the ladies Home journal. As a Rule the american girl seeks Europe for special study either of my Ste actor for the purpose of acquiring one or More of the it on Linen Tai Ingu Ages a German French Aud italian the question then arises whore when Anil How to use t me and Money most profitably i. E., to which province or cities Togo whether to enter at once a pension school where Only French German or italian is spoken or to live in some family where Riiber language is spoken exclusively or to take rooms Aud live by Fumble taking perhaps some to Quot ins at restaurants. Each method has certain advantages also some objections in deciding where to go or instance to learn German the Berlin cult will say a in Bavaria Hie language is Mot spoken so purely As in Northern Germany a while the South German habitant claims that the better accent the Saxon Aud austrian germans each have Loc ii claims but in Point 01 fact German is Well spoke and Well taught byte m ated people throughout the German Empire yet in each separate province peasants and labourers and their children speak dialects which Are As distinct As Are the languages of the different tribes of american indians and can be understood nowhere else. Heroe the conclusion that All other things being equal one province is As a Ood As another for acquiring the language. One of the greatest objections to the Peu Siou or boarding school is the insufficient diet. European Cookin so different from american an first so unpalatable that Young girls who ought to have appetizing and nourishing food and plenty of it would not be sufficiently fed. Then again though these schools guard very carefully their pupils Assoc late it n with girls so differently taught Aud whose moral training May or May not have been the Best also the absence of Home and religious helps is a vital objection to pension schools. Of these schools the Swiss Are said to be the Best and in them frenches far More readily acquired Thau in toe Paris schools where so Many american girls Are sent and where As would naturally be the Case the English speaking pupils associate Aud As a Mattei of course comm in Cate in their own language.
