The modern city is built on the isthmus connecting the mainland with the island of Pharos and on the island itself. The new streets, likejthe rue Ras-el-Teen and the me de Meidan, present the aspect of a European oity, but in the Turkish quarter the streets are narrow and dirty. The new embankment along the eastern harbor, and the new buildings on the great square of Mehemet Ah have added greatly to fhe attractiveness of the city The palace of the pasha and the lofty harem first strike the stranger's attention on entering the city. Among the other large buildings are the customhouse, the arsenal, the medical, naval and other schools. The Place Mehemet Ali, or grand square of the consuls, where the greater part of the maisacre in the recent r...

Middletown Department. — ' a NOM DE PLUME, editor. SATURDAY, AUG. 5,1882. Vennor says we will have an early winter. After a dry spell we have had a refreshing rain. Lemons are dropping again to their former prices. Daylight is now growing shorter and less at both ends. Mr. C. E. Sperry is covering the M. E. Church with a tin roof. Some people go to church and have queer texts on their minds. Middletown has a surplus of worthless dogs. Does Stephens City want any? A young lady of Middletown is so cruel that she actually took an ax to kill a fly. Several of our farmers have raised on an average thirty bushels of wheat to the acre. The scythe has been used but little this year, improved machinery having taken its place. Harvest is over and much of the 'harvest money' spent, but we got little or none of it. The members of the Young Men's Prayer Meeting met last night (Friday) to re-organize. Our folks say we don't " practice what we preach"—alluding to pulling weeds in the garden. Last ...

ANECDOTE OF A KING. From Common Holdli r to King. When Johan Baptist Julius Bernadotte was at the age of seventeen he ran away from his parents, and enlisted as a common soldier in the regiment "Roy-al-la Murine," which at the time was garrisoned on the island of Corsica. Five years later, he advanced to tho dignity of a corporal. Bernadotte was rapidly promoted, and in the year 1786 when Bernadotte bad been made a sergeant, the following episode took place. On a festival evening a dozen subordinate officers sat aiound a table on which stood a lot of empty v- me bottles. On this particular occasion, according to the custom of the country, a cake, called the "bean-cake," made ofordinary pastry, and containing one single bean, was to be served, and for this they were all anxiously waiting. Almost every soldier in the regiment Royal-la-marine had a nickname, so frequently made use of that it was better known than their real name. Bernadotte, for instance, went by the name of "Monsieur,...

Middletown Department. NOM DE PLUME, EDITOR. SA TURD A V, A UG. 12, 1882. The sunflower is tall enough to look over the fence. Daylight is now growing shorter and less at both ends. The season for trips to the mountains and sea-shore is now here. Mr. C. W. Peery is about to erect a large warehouse at the depot. This is a season of flowers and fruits, and plenty throughout the land. Hope on —the peaoh crop is looming up as the largest for many a year. A big haul of fish was made to-day by the sporting fisherman of our village. We are indebted to a Stephens City Miss for interesting college publications. In charity it may be better to give than to receive, but in kissing it is about equal. We received some interesting items by mail this week, for which the sender has our thanks. We have received an entertaining letter from "0. C. O. La.," complimenting the Star. Two persons were immersed and joined the Tunkard church near this place on Sunday last.

Better Than Gold. Better than grandeur, better Than ranks and titles a thousand fold, Is a healthy body and mind at ease, And simple pleaeuroa that always please; A heart that can feel for another's woe, And share its joys with genial glow, With sympathies large enough to enfold All men as brothers, is better than gold. Better thnn gold is a conscience clear, Though toil for bread in an humble sphere, Doubly blessed with content and health, Untired by the lusts or cares of wealth; Lowly living and lofty thought Adorn and ennoble a poor man's cot; For mind and morals in nature's plan Are the genuine tosts of a gentleman. Better than gold is the sweet repose Of the sous of toil when their labors close; Better than gold is the poor man's sleep And the balm that droops in his slumber deep. Bring sleepy dra...

Middletown Department. ,NOM DE PLUME, EDITOR. SA TURD A V, A UG. 19, 1882. In Clarke county they are praying for rain. Keep the pavements and gutters free from grass. Look out for cholera-morbus, it's stalking about. Closets that contain food should be aired every day. No parent should allow a child to fire off a toy pistol. The fine grass should make butter abundant and cheap. Tall corn stories are coming in—we mean stories of tall corn. Every man should take time to eat his meals and say his prayers. They are not pic-nics now. They call them "forest parties." Wages fairly earned and promptly paid is labor's just reward. It is an old saying that a heavy harvest is a sign of a hard winter. "Myrtle's" Meadow Mills communication will appear in our next. If you want to know the effect of green apples, justttsk the boys. Pleasure driving is the order of the day. Nothing like it for health.

MACHINERY. What It lln« limn- to l.lshien nnri -lnn.liii Oui I.nbor. Not so very long since every dock and watch that ticked in the world was made by hand, and no wonder that they were expensive luxuries. Each of the tiny screws had to be turned, and every cog in every little wneel measured off and cut by itself, and every part adjusted to fit every other part, while the slightest defect in the complicated workmanship might utterly destroy the value of the article. Clocks and watches have now coased to ba the luxuries of the rich. It used to be said that it took seventeen men to make a pin, and the head— which was made by twistiDg a fine wire round the head of the pin—was always liable to drop off. Since then a much better article has been produoed without the touch of c hnman hand—the cutting, head-making, pointing, polishing, and even the sticking of the pins into the paper and folding up into paokages being done by machinery. Once, every stitch in every garment— and in everything...
