The Cincinnati Weekly Star (Newspaper) - December 24, 1879, Cincinnati, Ohio40 we a a a a Tom it �5 if i i 2tiie Cincinnati weekly Stab wednesday december 24, 1879 ethereal love. A love Story of the Ever Panlo Post ensure. It was a Beautiful Ltd by in december. The Birds were winging merrily in the Trees and All nature seemed instinct with new life bees were humming among the Flowers and in fact it was summer again for the old order of things had Given Way to the new. Sirius the dog Star had in its turn become the North Star and indeed it was about the Only one of the ancient fixed luminaries that had remained visible from the Earth for the Sidar system had wandered far away and successfully entered portions of space where Orion a i. I the fear had become As Small and dim As the pleiades once were and then had ceased altogether from the firmament. The Earth was under a new heaven gleaming with constellations fairer than any that Ever before shone upon it. The science of an elder had taught hat in time the Sun would grow dim and cold and when that Lime should arrive All life would cease on the planets which would wander through space merely As so Many vast graveyards of departed generations. But happily this dream had been proved false by the event for although the Center of our system had indeed become no longer capable of sending its life giving Light and heat to its satellites yet the deficiency had been made up by the approach of the whole system As a body to another Sun compared with which our quondam Central fire was but As the smallest of the asteroids measured in terms of the Sun. In the Light and warmth of this new Center the Earth Lay out like a basking hound and enjoyed itself idly. But of course the hearts of men and women Hadka St none of their restlessness. Their Pride their loves and their hates for had they done so they would have been no longer human hearts you kill a Man As effectually if you tear his heart out As if you Cut fits head off and this being the Case it is not surprising that on that warm december Day two ladies should be found conversing As follows a where do you intend to spend the summer mrs. Tre Garva a the speaker was a Beautiful blonde in the Early Dawn of womanhood. Her luxuriant hair floated free about a brow of More than Alabaster whiteness the flush on her Cheek out vied the Rose and her eyes of her eyes what could they be likened to save the stars for Luster and the quietude of twin lakes for depth her form was matchless and in time would develop to Juno like proportions. These facts alone show How enduring is the nature of Man which through All Vicissitudes emerges in the same sort of heroine even after the passage of myriads of Ages. Such heroines arc there now and such were there then and such will there Ever be till the novelists pen at least drops from his nerveless hand and he goes to soak his aching brow in the infinite ethereal pail of the everlasting Paulo Post future. The lady was Learned too and had written treatises not Only on a the fourth dimension of space a but on the a nth dimensions As Well. She spoke aryan like a native and what is More she understood it. She had published an amended and critical edition of the Complete works of Augusta j. Evans and spoke exceeding Well of pyramids. Nevertheless and notwithstanding All this she now said simply a where do you intend to spend the summer mrs. Tre Garva a mrs. Tre Garva was a faded old lady who banged her false front and tried to make the world be ice that she was Young. Khe was dressed in the height of fashion and in nature and by acquirement she a Vas censorious to a decree pc lie once was mortal Ken of delicious indeed a and she clasped her fair hands in agony of Delight.

A if John knew How you put a Quill in your shoulder and blow yourself up plump every morning he might no to think you so truthful As you try to make out a a a truce to this mrs. Tre Garva a said our heroine while a smile of ineffable disdain curled her Ripe lips. A at All events i done to go to bed perfectly Flat like a Pancake and then be obliged to have a servant blow me up to wizened Ness in the morning before i can even open my eyes to say nothing of taking my the old woman winced at this and asked her companion not to reveal her secret to the outer world. A i said this a said she a was much for your advantage As my a How is that Pray a inquired Amelia. A Well a was the reply old age is something that comes to us All if we live Long enough it has its secrets and its advantages. You know that i can visit portions of the universe which to you Are wholly unknown and in them i May tie Able to acquire knowledge which although it can not make me Young again might lie of interest to you who Are yet in the heyday of life. Do you remember that once there was a Constellation named Orion and in that Constellation there was a Star named Betelgeuse speak Low a said the aged Croue a for we May be i Vou some Ages ago Ltd love As the old lady Spike John Vou promised to give me one of your in so i did no to say a Eye a i said a in so a your second self you know.

Professor Huxley 011 snakes. London times lecture yesterday evening the opening at the London institution for the season was delivered by professor Huxley f. R. S., to a very crowded audience his subject being a snakes a than which he degree was so utterly disagreeable that even the hand of fiction refuses to portray her further which was where most people would like to see her. In reply to our heroines question she snapped out a pshaw i done to want to go anywhere simply because i done to know of a single spot in the system where folks can be exclusive. Jupiter has become decidedly vulgar and As for Mercury it is quite overrun with the Cavaille. I had some thoughts of going to Saturn but mrs. Mink spent last season there and says it is too loud for anything. What in the world this quiver a is coming to in a sure i done to know there Isnit a 1100k nor Corner left for exclusive people hey Day tra la la away we go a and her wizened old face was horrible to see As with one convulsive wrinkle she pulled the top of her Scalp Down under her Chin and then with a snap clapped it Back again to its original position. A John and i a returned our heroine whose name by the Way was Amelia Jones a have had some thoughts of trying the Sun this year. It is old and it is not so flashy As it used to be. I hear that �?�ver3f few people visit it now the multitude like Glare and glitter the artist loves effects and i hear that some of the most startling though pleasing effects Are to be Mien from the Sun that can be i oud a much better go to Neptune a said the Harriman through her set nose. A at All events it is warmer there i always have to Wear a heavy shawl in the Sun and a shawl does no to become my style of Amelia laughed a Light Silvery laugh and remarked a John thinks he would like the Sun on that very a what account a wheezed mrs. Tre Garva. A because i wont be there again was heard that fairy Ripple of tone from Amelia who a Aid while a Beautiful Blumli suffused brow and bosom. Of dear no How can you think my so rude he says a and Here she sighed slightly a that he would like the Sun because it is so cold there that lie would have to fold one to his breast a Good part of the time just to keep one warm. And then dear mrs. Tre Garva just think of the effects it would quite be like being in that delicious Cave of the winds in fabled Niagara. Then too a a i remember a said the Maiden pressing her hand to her heart a that in the lore of the ancients there is a tradition of such a constellations nay of such a Star a but i have always deemed it a myth. Strange was the stupidity of the men of old. Perhaps they lied even about a nay they lied not a returned the hag. A Only yester eve i visited a aha a gasped Amelia a then there May lie truth in magic in thut strange weird learning of the ancients. How do you work it a a the Charm a returned the see res a is in becoming a perfect Shell. Sometimes through Means of holy rites such As that of abstaining from Farinace Ous food and discarding Lime containing substances As Well As keeping oneself piously aloof from fluids acids and the like and subsisting Only 011 aeration the youth May become a perfect Shell not an incomplete one. What is our boasted science you perchance Cau visit the planets and the Sun but How shall you reach the Stellar universe of mystery a a alas i know not a sobbed the now thoroughly reduced Amelia. A i will Tell you a said the mass of decrepitude. A but in return you must lose Oue of your eyes. I done to see very Well now even in the strongest Light and i want a new Eye. Give me one of yours and the secret is your the soul of Amelia was thus placed in a quandary. Should she Tell John her Lover of the revelation that had been made to her by this sorceress and leave to him the Job of discovering it by Means of his powerful ratiocination or should site Deal directly with Texe Witch and lose one of her eyes it was indeed a terrible dilemma and she asked a week to consider it. A not an hour not a minute a shrieked the aged Crone and so Amelia was forced at once to accept the situation and agree to the terms. It was a hag Ridden night on the Brocken when Amelia and mrs. Tre Garva approached the catapult in Observatory which crowned that Mystic height. At the bidding of the Crone Amelia stepping into die de gravitating apartment was divested of much of her weight. She was exhausted of air and then desiccated undergoing tortures which had she not been sustained by the thought of what she might learn in Orion would have been wholly insupportable. The magicians of that age were the physicists and astronomers of Olden times. The engineers with their slight Powers of translating somewhat weighty bodies throughout the limits of the solar system were but feeble compared with these men of might. The theory upon which the latter worked their Mystic charms was wholly based on the doctrine of gravitation. The reason Why the Pur Blind creatures of an obsolete Antiquity could not Send heavy bodies through space to great distances was that they possessed 110means of de gravitating bodies by the thorough removal of All their solids and fluids and leaving Only the still undiscovered keratin to enclose the consciousness. All that keeps a body on the Earth is its weight. The slightest propulsion of a de gravitated body will Send it in a straight line indefinitely until it is stopped by solidity. Thus divested of a part of her weight Amelia had been Able with the common Herd to sojourn in various planets. Through the mystical process of promising Oue of her eyes to a person whose sight was failing she became void of weight and when once set going soon reached Betelgeuse the hag lading and upbraiding her All the Way. She had to go in a straight line. It was the first time she had Ever done so. Blie Felt outer. In her flight she passed levies anti levies of Beautiful Maidens returning to the Earth. Said there were in the popular App re symbolical degradation and horror. Quoting the Hension few animals More symbolical of tearing upon the second week of our Art primeval curse in genesis he remarked that no creatures seemed More easily destroyed by Man and few less Able to defend themselves. Few wounds would be less harmful than a snakes bite were it nothing More than the sudden closing of of the Teeth. Yet there were not Many animals gifted with so Many faculties. It can stand up erect climb As Well As any ape swim like a fish Dart Forward Ana do All but Fly in seizing its prey. The destructiveness of snakes to Man was illustrated by the fact that 20,000 human lives Are yearly lost in India by their Poison and it might safely be said that they Are a More deadly enemy to our race than any other beasts of the Field. Professor Huxley spoke first of the three classes indigenous to our own climate the ringed Snake the Coronelia and the Viper. Of these the Viper alone was venomous which the differences Between its Structure and that of the harmless British snakes helped to explain. It might be that the reason there were no snakes in Ireland was the multiplicity of its other plagues. Everybody must be struck with the Beauty of the harmless stakes which formed the overwhelming majority especially the Grace with which Thev wreathed their ladies into circles and their Fine eyes. The venomous snakes were not so Beautiful. None admired our native Viper with its Yellowish Scales. To adults its bite was far Seldom or serious than to the Young. Passing to snakes in general of which there were Many hundreds of distinct species the lecturer illustrated in great email the adaptation of their organization to its manifold work. Very graphic was Bis description of the manner in which some of the More destructive snakes Dart suddenly on their prey twisting themselves round its body crushing it into a shapeless and writhing mass and at last swallowing it whole. But the night is warm especially so in a crowded room and retracing our Steps we find ourselves once More in the lobby. But we do not pause for a few further Steps take us to the Balcony of the Academy of music a proscenium. There we find every seat occupied. Below us we discover a great pro menacing Hall made tons and How largely Art enters into by flooring Over the Parquette from the religion As an Aid to Devotion we May dress Circle to the stage. The stage also forms a part of the whole and a very Inch of surface is carpeted with Brussels. In the Center of the floor shut in with great masses of plants etc., in full Bloom sit the orchestra fore taking a Wise step in fostering the while around and around promenade Art instinct whether that instinct tends ladies and gentlemen we say promenade toward Mere Utility or takes the nobler for dancing is never allowed on so August an occasion As this. Ingoing Down stairs we find the seats in the dress Circle All occupied and having thus completed our Foj Survey of the buildings we estimate the subject an evidence of Wisdom and that there Are five thousand persons appreciation that i should rejoice to see present. Now whom do we a find participating in these gathering j the most Penlight just at the present moment we Are en-1ene j1 the City. On this special 1 occasion we find Rev. Or. R. Fet orrs second Only to Rev. Henry Ward Beecher As a pulpit orator Rev. Or. T. De Witt the Progress Brooklyn has made in the Talmage the most abused and next to same Road upon which you of Cincinnati Beecher the most popular Clergyman in have so bravely set out i propose to take the City also Auy number of clergymen of lesser Caliper the i United states judge Benedict the family of congressman b. B. Chittenden the family of it. Rev. Bishop Littlejohn of the protestant episcopal Church Ever painting for you As graphically As or. A. Barnes the great new form which blossoms Forth in pictures statues and temples. And i am glad to see the Star devoting so much space to in Many other journals throughout the 81 n i Ted exhibition and that you May judge of you in imagination through our Beautiful Art building in Montague Street introducing you to some of the most precious of its treasures though first How i can the spectacle of Beauty and fashion presented there on reception night. The sky is overcast but the air is not Chilly and from the attire of the crowd passing toward Montague Street one might almost fancy the month october instead of november. Carriages Are passing and when we turn from court Street into Montague we find a Long line of dashing looking equipage drawn up on the left hand Side of the Way each waiting its turn to discharge its richly attired occupants at the Entrance to the exhibition. In a moment More we Are at the stage end of that grandly massive building the Academy of music. The building is several Hundred feet Long and through every one of its numberless windows the Light is streaming while from within steal out upon the night breezes the Sweet strains of Distant music. Finally we come to the Entrance and if we Are Only an Ordinary member of the Art association we enter Here if however we Are a director we continue on fifty or More feet until we reach the Steps leading to the magnificent Temple that some of our most cultured and wealthy citizens have reared As a Monument of Art. But let us follow the throng entering through the Academy of music doors. First a great lobby confronts us through this we pass then through swinging doors into the inner lobby where the ladies find their cloak and dressing rooms York text Book publisher or. R. W. Hubbard artist and president of the association or. W. Husted a Man of wealth and vice president of the association and others too numerous to mention including Many of the artists whose names have already appeared. But to night is the occasion for personal display and to an uninitiated observer the impression might be Given that fashion rather than Art brings Many hither. Well perhaps it does to night but wait until to Morrow and you shall see As we have been seeing All this week top a thousands and Many others added going slowly from picture to picture catalogue in hand studying and admiring. At a future time i Hope to treat More fully of Art in Brooklyn. For the present this glimpse of us in this direction must suffice. Let me however add that we have another exhibition annually in the Spring. Cras. Rat killing is a popular pastime Dallas Texas. The Central Illinois Farmers nearly All their Corn husked. Brownsville tenn., is shipping several Hundred Bales of Cotton daily. Borne Kansas Farmers arc going extensively into the Peanut culture. Nat. Collins of Greenup countr ky., gathered this fall from a thirty five acre Orchard g40 barrels of apples. California Salmon Are being Exten sively distributed in the streams of West Virginia by the fish commissioner of that state. Gerster gets $�00 a night for singing two hours in opera but that baby can make her travel up and Down a room All night and sing for just nothing at All. An Iowa paper says a consignment of three ear loads of Choice wheat Fot seed is in route to Southern California at a Cost of $g00 per car for transportation. Union Springs Ala Herald not less than a million Choice fruit Trees shrubs and plants have been sold and delivered in Pike county within the past eight years and fruit of every kind grows to perfection and is produced in satisfactory quantities to make it profitable. Dallas Texas Herald the Farmer of this county have already marketed twice the amount of Cotton they expected to gather commencement of the picking season and received much better prices than anticipated and As a result they Are nearer out of debt and in better condition than for Many years. Nearly one million pounds of Leaf tobacco was seized in new Orleans a few Days since by Revenue officials for an alleged violation of the Law in converting Leaf tobacco by Hydraulic pressure into a form which is believed by the officials to be manufactured tobacco Ami therefore liable to a tax of six their cent per Pound. Frankfort ky., Yeoman a peculiarity about the Fine samples of Corn sent to the agricultural department from Mason county is that each ear contain from one to a dozen purple grains. To do not observe this in any of the Sample sent from other counties. There is also a marked uniformity in the size of Tho ear showing that the Corn is of a distinct Type. A recent inventor says the american agriculturist claims to be Able to Malta hard Wood lumber from wheat Straw. Tho Straw is first made into a pulp and then into Ordinary pasteboard. As Many of these sheets Are taken As required to make the thickness of lumber desired and then Are passed through a chemical solution the composition of which is not stated and afterwards the sheets Aro Tassea through rollers and the hard Lumer impervious to water ready for use. Comes out using up the elephants Loudon Telegraph considerable interest attaches to a a to divest themselves of their wraps. But he pointed out some very curious a with servants in attendance to help them Range ments in the anatomical mechanism a 1 a n i and jaw Bones illustrative of the statement that the Snake can not properly be ii oils on said to Swallow his prey he holds on to it rather gradually working it Down its Throat in a most leisurely manner but never letting it go. He would take a sleep for six weeks before giving up his task and if the morsel were really too big would sometimes die in the Effort to get it Down. Of course the Snake required a very fully developed and effective apparatus of salivary glands for this purpose. The Poison bag of the venomous snakes was nothing but a modification of the salivary glands of the harmless species the Structure of both kinds being in almost All respects not Only parallel throughout but almost identical. As another instance of the close relationship it was shown that the Sharp Channel Needle which conveys the Poison of the cobra and its congeners is nothing but the development of the tooth which these murderous reptiles possess in common with innocuous snakes. The fact that the salivary gland was the Poison Laboratory of the deadly snakes As Well As the known properties of the saliva of dogs or other living creatures affected with rabies appeared to professor Huxley to Point Oit the direction in which the solution of the difficult problem of the cause of Snake and of a possible antidote at present there was no Man id heal the bite of the being of the male persuasion we pass up gentle hat rooms where having relieved our several flights of stairs to the gentlemen s poisoning against it. Living who Cou cobra except by cauterize action in very fresh cases. To speak of the purely objective effects a mrs. Tre Garva said they were All rejuvenated hags from the Earth. Amelia did not thoroughly believe her but feeling herself �11 the hags Power and in for it she kept silence. A Hist a said the old lady As they a what could be finer than to stand on preached Betelgeuse a a hear you the some crag above a precipice ten thousand dashing of the ethereal Waves against Miles step and look off into the Pratti Yon shores perhaps it May seem Cally infinite Ether and see you rolling is Range to you this in my away in the distance far beyond what conversation but if you will remember a queer find in an Apple. Toronto Globe an Emigrant at the Union station while waiting for the Western express to Start at 12 15 p. M. Yesterday invested five cents in applies and distributed them among three or four companions. On cutting one of the fruit through the Center he was surprised to find solidly imbedded therein a Silver half Dollar. How the Coin came there is a mystery but the appearance of the Apple would indicate that some one had Cut it in halves. Placed the Coin in the portions together again woman who sold the fruit wante claim the Coin but the shrewd foreigner would not have it that Way. Sideways and glued the Apple u to selves of overcoat hat and umbrella had our a Swallow Tail brushed and our shoes polished we Are in readiness to go on the floor. If we have a lady we descend to the second lobby and await her appearance. If not we descend to the second floor turn to the left and find ourselves in the Assembly rooms of the Academy of music. At once we Are in the midst of a dense crowd. Elegant toilets Are about us in endless profusion and we Are almost afraid to move lest we tread on silk or velvet or Brush rudely against some Beautiful Diamond encircled Arm. But we quickly find that the crowd is moving methodically around the sides of the room and Are not Long in discerning the cause in the paintings that line the wails. Here on our right is a humorous painting by Ludwig Blume the promising Pupil of the great Kaulbach of Munich who died a few years ago. Then come porcelain plaques decorated by John m. Falconer and others then a Rich collection of water Colora a number of them grouped under a festoon of Crape in memory of the deceased artist Jolin w. Hill and others water colors the work of a. F. Bellows John Faulkner . A. F. Cropsey James d. Smil lie j. Wells Chanis Nev e. C. Dibdin and others then from the new i or tuning John m. Falconer William Hepburn and others and then Over a Hundred Oil paintings possessing claims to Merit but with one or two exceptions of Little interest except locally. Passing through a Small room containing a few busts and some specimens in Black and White we suddenly emerge into the Art gallery proper for we have stepped from the Academy of music into the Art building. Here the character of the exhibition at once changes for it is Here that the choicest works in Oil Are displayed. Here is James m. Hart with a Large and grand cattle piece. Near by is a Small but vigorous Marine from m. F. H. Delfaus who has a Little further on a striking Moonlight scene on the Ocean. Then Here is David col with a wonderful Fig ure piece representing a scene in a belgian Bird exhibition. Here also is Bier question which has just been put by Sheffield worker in Ivory. He desires a it know whether elephants shed their tusks As if not upward of twelve Hundred and eighty of these magnificent beasts must have been killed to Supply his manufactory alone with the Ivory used last year. The answer to his query is unfortunately that before the tusks can be obtained an elephant must be slaughtered and herein is found a subject for very serious reflection. Numerous still in Ceylon though by no Means so plentiful As they were a few years ago and without doubt existing also in Large numbers in certain parts of Africa the elephant is however rapidly disappearing. As a beast of Burden he is unrivalled for strength endurance and intelligence and the services he renders in times of War As Well As peace would alone More than Reward a great Effort on his behalf. Quite apart from the fact that when he goes the Supply of Ivory ceases too there is also the grave consideration of his loss As a Means or. J. Noone government photographer Victoria referring to an article on Largo Trees sends us English Mechanic a couple of photographs of the a giant of the Forest mentioned. The total length of the tree for it is felled was allowing 24 feet for Small branches a disappeared a 330 feet the circumference 1 foot above ground was 69 feet diameter 12 feet above ground 11.4 feet and at a 210 feet As much As 5 feet. The tree grew in the Dandenong state Forest and was a White gum eucalyptus Amygdalia. The trustees of the Maine state agricultural College lately held their annual meeting and there were present Wingate of Bangor Oak of Garland Hincks of Bucksport bean of Kennebec Goodale of Saco and Moore of Limerick. The term of Abner Coburn As president and member of the Board of trustees expired some months ago. We. P. Wingate was chosen president of the Board. Lyndon Oak is Secretary and col. Eben Webster is treasurer. The College is making very Good Progress. The farm this season paid All its expenses.
