The Granary of the World. GLANCING at the map, with the naviga ble waters of the Mississippi Valley, over 16,000 miles in extent, before us, consti tuting the farm, the granary of the world, we are reminded that, from the standpoint of a century, there was a wide expanse of trackless wilderness behind the narrow fringe of white settlements which bordered the Atlantic—that the thirteen colonies have swelled into thirty-seven States and Ter ritories, and capitals which may vie with many of the Old World now dot the land from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Among the grand results of the system of small proprietary interests founded by the fathers—that policy which favored the appropriation of the public lands by act ual settlers in small tracts, in considera tion of a nominal sum of money—has been the erection of an empire which may properly be termed the region of cereals, embracing the States of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan and Wiscon sin, on the east of the Mississippi River and ...

Tuesday last was certainly a good day for fires. Chicago came very near re peating her great fire. The loss is from $4,000,000 to $5,000,000 and in cludes some of the finest buildings in the city. But the fires of Oshkosh, "Wisconsin, and Iowa Falls, Iowa, are relatively much greater than the Chi cago fire, as great, in fact, relatively, as the one great fire of which Chicago is so proud. A Oshkosh the principal part of the city was burned and several hundred families were rendered home less. The loss is estimated at $000,000. A Iowa Falls,...

Slimmer Hint for Tasteful People. E summer is really upon us, with all its treasures of leaves and flowers, and already many of the readers of the Bazar are enjoying the quiet retreats of the country, or else are busier than ever amidst the gayeties of the sea-side or some other fashionable resort. But even in the constant changes of employment usual in such circles there will come days when a quiet ramble in the woods or a stroll by some retired streamlet will be a welcome episode to vary the daily monotony of dress and dances. Especially to those who possess a love of nature, and can find beauties by the wayside and in the depths of the forest, will a few hints be of use in direct ing attention to things obscure in them selves, yet full of capabilities for future application. Now In the earlier part of summer, let me advise them to gather the green fern leaves in their perfection, and press them in large books for winter bou quets. They will form the loveliest deco rations for the...

History *aP8* BT RUFUB BLAWCHAKD. Away back in the 42d Olympiad, when Kings ran foot-racea with newsboys," —almost 600 years before the Christian era—there dwelt at Miletus, Thales. one of the Seven Wise Men of Greece. It is enough to say of him that he was a Grecian" philosopher. Whether he ever had a sheepskin diploma or not, don't mat'er. History gives him the credit of introduc ing to the world the familiar theory of the signs of the Zodiac, and of being the first one to calculate eclipses. This in formation was given to the world shortly after his return from Egypt, tha.t famous old seat of learning in those days. Like other wise men of his age he gloried in imparting instruction to his peers, and particularly to the youth of his country. Anaximander was one of his fortunate pupils, and not only made himself mas ter of the science of his tutor, but car ried his researches even beyond that dia^ tinguished old sage. Without the assist ance of any corner-lot endowment or other aux...

The Stomach. This important organ is a muscular sack formed by a dilation of the alimen tary canal. In shape it somewhat re sembles a curved section of a cone in size it varies from eight to twelve inches in width, and from three to four in its greatest diameter. It is usually esti mated to contain about one quart when in a perfectly normal condition but so universally are excesses committed in eating ana drinking that in scores of observations we do not remember to have seen a single one that had not been dilated beyond this capacity. Its situ ation varies considerably, according as it is distended with food or otherwise its proper position is just below the liver. It is of a purely carnivorous type being intended only for the dissolving or chymif action of the food which has been finely triturated by the teeth. It fur nishes by far the most important of the five solvents concerned in digestion—the gastric juice. It actually digests, or reduces to chyme, all the elements of the foo...

Too fond to grieve, too sad to smile, I yielded to their silent power Aud was it but a breathing-while, Or wan it through a spell-bound hour, I kissed your face, an upturned flower, Whose sweetness did my soul beguile? Aud then I said, "Farewell, my sweet I The hour has come, and we must pnrt But through the long years ere we meet, Which will you bear within your heart To comfort yon when I depart— Remembrance, or oblivion fleet? "—A memory of all the bliss That made the flying hours so bright, From the first timid, trembling kiss I dared to give yon one dear night, Lost in a vision of delight, Down to the perfect joy of this?
