Deaf HitM Made to Owl.
In every we prolonged etrujrfrlei hftra
Iw-en made against deafness; there har
been tibial physicians, special instru
ments arid stiecial remedies for the ear.
The acoustic cornet of Dr. Larrey, in
tended to be concealed in the hair; tl
acoustic bell of Dr. Hard, acoustic tulx-a,
dilating tubes, artificial ears of metal,
silk and Kutta percha, audi phones, auri
cular microphones, conches, artificial
ryinpannrns, even acoustic fans for the
use of ladies, hare had at divers times
a ii'putution more or lens deserved. Fi
nally, the announcement was made a
ftw days ago that a new acoustic horn
bad been found which not only enabled
the deaf to hear, but which diminished
and even conquered deafness.
The apparatus is composed of a largo
bell of enameled metal, united by a
pitta percha tube, about fifty centime
ters in length, to a little bone tube cov
ered with gutta percha, which extends
somewhat beyond it Tho tube is cov
ered outHide by a light BtufI intended to
arrest all foreign vibrations. The little
tube penetrates into the auditory pas
sage and touches the tympanum.
Thanks to thin, not a sound, not ft breath

perceives sounds ami noises; that is to
lay, vowels and consonants, and finally
he even hears words. The sounds are

One of Perry's Vels.
An important relic of the war of 1311
has just been unearthod at Ferrysbnrg.
It is the lower portion of the hull of the
sloop Porcnpino, one of the nine maL

The Porcnpino was taken to Detroit
where, in 18U0, her upper works were re
built und her name chongod to Carolina
Eventually she was brought to Grand
Haven and sailed by Captain Ilarry Mil
ler. Iu the curly fifties she was set
adrift in Grand river near the mouth.
The curreut carried her out into Lake
Michigan, but a west wind blew hef
back in a day or two, and she was after
ward refitted and sailed a season or two.
Finally, about the year 185.1, she was al
lowed to sink, head on, at Ferrysburg.
Her remains will be taken from the
water and properly cored for. Grand

rary prints the following: "We have been
informed that about one month ago, in
Morgan county, while a man and his
wife were sittiug out on the veranda
late in the afternoon, their attention
was attracted by the appearance of
large king snake on the steps a few feet
avay. 1 hoy were perfectly quiet, and
the snake crawled up the steps until it
reached the top; then it held its head
np, as much as to say, 'Can I come in?'
They remained perfectly still, and the
nake took it for granted that the silence
gave consent, so it proceeded to enter
the hall and crawled leisurely along
until it reached a bedroom where the
door stood ojien. It entered the door.
making its way under the bed.
"Here the king Bnnke pounced on
large rattlesnake that had coiled iUelf
around the bed springs. After a deadly
struggle with this monster rattler the
king snake went out in the yard and got
some kind of weed to kill the poisonous
bites. After taking the medicine the
kiug snake returned to the house and
continued thbattle until the rattlesnake
was dead. It was five feet in length aud
iiad nine rattles.""
Opening of tlia IuU Season.
hat ho, ye epicure of Irish birth!
Listen to the gladsome tidings that the
first crop of dulse for the season of 1SU1-3
has arrived and is awaiting your eager
purchase. Fresh from the rocks of Ban
dort'ii and all along tho Galwav nnd
Sligo coast it comes.
The dulse, or dillisk as the real Hi
bernians call it, is unusually plentiful
and or extra fine flavor this fall, and
when stewed with plenty of milk an
butter it will make a dish fit for a king.
A quart of it looks like a choice assort
ment of faded morocco leather scraps,
bnt it is line tne proverbial singed cat,
aud no one who knows its taste minds
its looks. The stew or broth it makes is
a general tonic for the system, and estie
cially good for dyspepsia; but men from
the"ould sod" say further that it en
larges the heart, enriches the brogue and
enliveus the feet of all who partake of it

An Improved Shirt.
An idea as old as the hills is gaining
recognition now, after having failed
persistently. I speak of the idea of the
"coat shirt." This is a garment which
in most respects does not differ from the
ordinary dress shirt. It has no claim to
novelty in appearance when it is worn.
The advantage is in the putting on, Tne
garment does not go over the head, but
is adjusted in tho Biuno way as an or
dinary coat It is closed behind and en
tirely open in front. It is being put
upon the market this year, and its future
looks brighter than ever before. In
swelldom it is not unknown already, but
it hss never gained wide popularity.

We Prink a Good Deal of Coffee,
ine unitea Mates ran its Mgn among
the coffee drinking nations, being sur
passed by Belgium and UoUp4 alone,
The average consumption of coffee per
inhabitant in this country lost year was
eight and a quarter pounds, while that
of tea was but one and two-tenths
pounds. Coffee is the national beverage

The late If me. Bartholdi was no ordi
nary person, and on her ninetieth birth
day she looked so full of life and beamed
so with mental rigor and heartiness that
I wonder she did not live to a hundred.
She was left a widow early, and devoted
herself to the education of her sons and
the stewardship of their paternal prop
erties, which under her management
were increased to fortune. Though ao
well endowed with the money making
faculty, shewos a person of a generous
disposition and given to hospitality.
In youth she was reputed the hand
somest girl in Alsace. As an old woman
she was more than handsome. The pure
outlines remained, nnd the fire of the
kindest, quickest and most lambent pair
of eyes imaginable was never quenched
so long as life remained. The son must
have had her in his head, as he remem
bered her in her younger days, when he
was sketching the design of the statue
of "Liberty Enlightening the World.'
t was her idea that Liberty should not
be en pate de guimauve, but of a grave
and severe aspect. Liberty was the bot't
of all conditions, she used to say, for
those who were severe npon themselves,
and the worst for the self indulgent.
One never saw a trace of self righteous
harshness in the old lady. She was very
indulgent toward the erring; but that
grace, she said, came with the wide ex
perience of old age. It was a source of
enjoyment to her to drive to the Isle of
Swans, in the Seine, and look at the re
duced copy which was set up there a few
years ago of the famous statue which
now stands at the entrance of New York
harbor. One of her sayings was, "Do
not repress badness; crowd it out with
good ideas." London Truth.
A Pari Candle Story,
"Every traveler who stops at a Paris
lodging house," laughed a woman the
other day, "has a candle story, and here
is mine: We were served with two
candle every morning, which we nevor
half used tip; these would be taken out,
however, and fresh ones appear in their
places. Knowing that we were being
charged for every candle we determined
at least to enjoy added illumination, and
my husband looked around for a place to
hide them during the daily doing up of
the apartment. On the top shelf of a
cabiuet arrangement in a corner stood a
large Japanese vase, wide and deep. Up
to this Mr. climbed, to discover that
we had been forestalled, for in its capa
cious hollow we found seventeen can
dles, every one burned down perhaps an
"Some former lodger had resented
the candle swindle like ourselves, and
had put his daily allowance where it
would do the proprietor no good. Thai
night a brilliant illumination of nineteen
candles, each set in its own grease on
the marble top table, gave as something
like light During our stay we hid and
accumulated candles, so that we had
always enough to read by, and when we
left we deposited our overstock in the
vase for the benefit of some searching
successor. New York Times.
Th Religion of China,
The three great religions of China are
Confucianism, Buddhism and Taonisra.
The bulk of the people are Buddhists
rather than Confncianists, and there are
millions of infidels. The tomb of Con
fucius is at Mecca, for many of the Chi
nese, and they make pilgrimages to it.
Confucianism is more a philosophy than
a religion. It contains many of the beau
ties which we suppose to be exclusively
the properties of Christianity. The
golden rule in a negative form was an
nunciated by Confucius, and as a system
of morality it is beautiful. The Taou.sts
have more superstitions than the Con-
fucianists. They began about the same
time as Confucius, their preacher being
The state religion, in connection with
which all these religions come in, is the
worship of the emperor, who is the son
0 heaven and the prophet, priest and
king of the people, lie worships for
them in the temples at Pekin When
the great Temple of Heaven wad burned
down a shudder ran down the 31)0,000,000
spines of the great Chi nese nation. It was
thought that this was a warning from
heaven that the emperor should be de
posed. Frank G. Carpenter in National
Hedging Letter from T.ondnu.
"Ever since I was abroad," said a well
known New Yorker, "I have been pes
tered with all sorts of begging letters.
They are mostly from tlie managers of
nghsh charitable institutions of vari
ous descriptions, titougu Borne are from
private individuals. The former inclose
a variety of printed matter illustrating
the purposes and work of the institution.
Tho latter are abject appeals of appar
ently professional begging letter writers,
with which London abounds. I was
talking with a friend about it and he
said he had the same experience for
about two years after he hail bailt a fine
house here, a description of which and
his wealth got into the local papers. He
was deluged with begging lotters from
almost every capital in Europe and es
pecially from London.
"T-se people are the worst and most
persistent beggars in the world. Fancy
an American mailing begging letters to
Londoners! I suppose there must be
money in it or they wouldn't do it."
New York Ilerald.
The intelligent foreigner is highly
amused at the indiscriminate way in
which Englisk audiences use this word,
regardless of the number and sex of the
performers whom they wish to applaud.
A tenor is, of course, hravo; but a
prima donna is brava. More than one
male artist can only be bravi, and if
there are more ladies than one on the
stage, and no man is to be inclnded in
the applause, they s.honld be hailed as
brave at least according to Italian
grammar. Notes and Queries.
