A MOORISH BATH. The Luxury and Heat of a Gen- ' uine Oriental Ablution. t iz First Roasted and then Knead- s, ed By Grinning Attendants. de is 'o traveler in the East can consider g' his sojourn complete without the ex- m perience at least, if not luxury, of a a Turkish or Moorish bath. f If you go, you go to perspire, and to 01 "ee everybody and everything around you perspire. After undressing and de- t1 positing your watch and valuables with , the proprietor, go to the hot room and stretch yourself upon a raised platform i in the centre of the tepidarium, built of P large slabs of marble over an oven in which a raging fire is eager to roast you. L When you are roasted on one side P turn over and try another n corner of your altar to find a cool spot. t Then lie on the stone floor, and let your si grinning attendant crack your bones, g pull your joints and twist your neck, C and knead you with his hands'and walk h over you with his knees; then let him c roll off your old skin, and ...

The American system of railroading has been adopted. England is far behind this country is the matter of electrical progress. Only eight towns and cities in that country are provided with fre-alarm systems. Three of the grandsons of Emperor Dom Pedro of Brazil, aged tweave, ten and seven, are publishing a bright little paper called the Courier Imperial. They are the editors, printers and pressmen of the little sheet, which is liberal in politics and opposed to slavery.

In the past tifty-tuur years Great Britain has tripl!cd her wealth, Franca has nearly quadrupled hers, whie the United States, since 1850, has multi plied in riches sixfold. An OrlaLdo (Fla.) wagonmaker has constructed a boat-wagon that will go equally we.l on land or water, and is voted just the thing for sportsmen in wild and watery re;ions. The articles published in this coun try on Russia, declares the Detroit Free Press, are making it uncomfortab:e for Americans traveling in that country. They are being dogged by spies wher ever they go, and permission to go through prisons or churches is prompt ly dcnieJ. Probably the eldest employe of the government in term of service is Lindsey Muse, an ancient colored man, who has stood guard at the door of the Secre taries of the Navy since 182S. .

FOR FARI AND GARDEN. is Th.e Cuerrant orer. There are two iýseets which bore into Ia currant bushes; one is a moth and an- n4 other is a small b.etle. These insects V, deposit their eggs on the stems of the ti currant bushes in June; the eggs change to grubS, which bore through the pith, 0 eating it out, and causing tha leaves to ti turn yellow and wither. They remain tI all winter in the wood and emerge in a May.

tl1e tltklkn tssengter. 'ublished Weekly -AT 8t Martinsville, L a. -BY EASTIN £ SIENVENU. The BIattyville (Ky.) Enterprise says that there is so little learning in the mountainous districts of Kentucky be cause the people can get along just as well without an education. Doctors, lawyers, clergymen, schoolteachers and business men can prosper in their sev eral callings with only the faintest smat tering of book-learning. Indeed, agood education would in many cases stand in the way of their success, because it would put them out of touch with the people who rely mainly on the Lord and their own horse sense for guidance in the affairs of life. Quinine is constantly reported as sup. erceded, but somehow it has thus far managed to hold its own pretty well. Now a certain Herr Gottlob Adolf.
