He was a finxl man and true, a scientist
no far as b llgbt went, and with a pro
feaiional Uialmst for the proscriptions of
those whom he calls magicians, who
lit rove to euro by spells, amulets and
charins And he set himself to make a
collection of prescriptions for the benefit
of the suffnring Ilomans of his day, being
careful only to insert those which had
l-en duly recommended by the faculty.
This "curious ami Interesting took was
translated Into Kngllsb by lr. Philemon
Holland, three years before the death of
Klizabolh. at which time thero were great
numbers of peoplo who implicitly believed

ventnro, then, no apology in offering our
vadcra a few of 1'liny'a choicest prescrip
jtlons. bo old that now they are new.
Fever receives the attention it deserves,
being cured most by amulets and remedies
to bo worn round the neck; as, for In

Deafness was readily curable by a com
pound of "goosegrease, fresh butter and
bull's gall, tempered with myrrh and rue,
or the fume that a horse doth froth, mixed
with oil of roses."
A very rational remedy Is recommended
for toot hacho: "If one bite off apiece of
dome tree that hath been blasted with
lightning, provided always" and here is
the rub -"that he holds his hands behind
Id in in so doing, tho said poece of wood
will tako away the toothache."
. Headache was at once cured by having
the forehead touched by "the trunk or
snufile of an olephaunt;" or, "if a man
pouro vinlgar upon the hooks and hindges
f doors, and make a Liniment with the
durt that commeth of the rust thereof,
and therewith anoint the forehead," his
headache is at once cared.
Sore eyes were a simple matter, and re
quired only "to anoint them with wolfs
grease or swine's marrow;' but actual
blindness required, of course, more elab
orate treatment. "The gravle or dripping
of a hyame's liver, newly taken out of the
body and rosted, being Incorporated with
clariOed hony into an unguent, riddoth a
man from blindness. Or If the eyes
squinted, "if the eies be dipped three
times in that water wherein a man or
woman liAth washed their feet, they shall

Tbo remedy for "relaxed throat" was
utmpifl enough, bnt tho doctor needed tp

euflVr another to bite tho hairo in tho
crowne of his head, and bo to pull him
plarrib from the ground."
Miould an accident occur in eating,
riiny is equal to the emergency: "If a

tho way readie to 6top tho breth, take the
crums of the same loafo and pot thm

r:nlifi and American Journal.
Perhaps the most striking contrast be
tween English and American journals i
In tbe relative amount of space alloted to
verbatim reports of speeches,' discourses
and other addresses. Besides the room
given to parliamentary proceedings, there
ero manv columns in each issue of the
average English daily devoted to record
ing tho utterances of men. wiso or other
wise. Tho Crst qualification required of a re
porter In-England is the ability to take
verbatim notes; and, looking over some
of tha English papers, on American is in
clined to think it is the only qualUicetion.

Catlo Between Men and Women.
Prof. V. K. Brooks, of Baltimore, has
discovered that a favorable environment
tends to produce au exoes.3. of females
among animals and plants, and au unfa
vorable environment aq excess of males.
If this be truo. a race or species which is
on the point of extinction should have an
excess of males.
The population of Australia consists of
a small and decreasing number of aborig
ines, and a prosperous and Increasing pop
ulation of foreign settlers and then- de
scendants, amounting in all to nearly
8,000,000 persons. As the natlya jxppuia'
tion I rapicUy disappearing, we should
expect to hnd the males more numerous
among them as compared with the fe
males than among the Inhabitants of for
eign origin, provided other conditions ar
cquaL For each 100 females there were in
Victoria of native born Australian a 100 3-Q
males, and of foreigners, exclusive of
Chinese, 129 1-10 niajes. The ratio of
males to females in the population of for
eign origin i3 therefore very mqch greater
than it would be If Jt depended upon the
birth rate alone; and as this modifying in
fluence does not affect the aborigines, an
excess of males among them, no greater,
or even a little less, than that found
among the inhabitants of foreign origin,
would indicate that the excess of ;&bia
births is much greater among them than
among the people of foreign origin. Com
putation shows that the excess of males
among the aborigines is. notwithstanding
these neutralizing Influences, very mua
greater than It ia amorii? tho foreign pop
ulation. For all Australia thero are 143.72 abo
riginal males to each 100 females; there
are only 11S.C4 males of foreign descent
to each 100 females, notwithstanding the
fact that 129 males settled in these colo
nies to each 100 females.- Science.

A dissertation on the French youth of
the day appears In a Paris paper, and is In
great part a reproach. There are no mora
young men. laments the writer. These
grave and solemn beings who take life so
seriously ana una so lime joy tn tneir
. youth cannot be called young men. They
talk of deputations when they shonld be
thinklng.about balls and pretty partners.
Instead of inditing a sonnet to his mis
tress' eyebrow, the modern young man
contributes a paper to a political journal
in which he elucidates the counsels of
Europe and gives hi3 views npon themi
i lie never descends to the' frivolity of danc
ing. He marries money, and cares little
whether the lady that goes with it be
pretty or plain, young or old. He Is in
sensible to all but the practical Issues of
life. His heart beats in his brain and
leaves his bosom cold. Can he be called
voung? There Is nothing of youth about
Lim but the superficial appearance of it.
Another type of the unyouthful young
man is be who dresses like an English
groom, talks 6tablcs and racing, pigeon
shooting, and discusses the repertory of
the music ball. Ills little soul begins

Hospitality and Simplicity.
Tbe house stands in a clearing of some ten
or fifteen or twenty acres, comprising a nar
row strip of bottom land on 'the banks of a
little stream or branch, while tbe rest of the
cultivated ground gently slopes upon the
mountain side. Tbe house ts built of logs,
the cracks either stopped with mortar made
of clay or by split boards nailed over them.
There are generally two rooms in the house,
and the one I am about to describe hod a
rude porch in front, used as a storage place
for agricultural implements, asdso a saddle
and bridle. A winding path of about fifty
yards carries you to a cold spring, from
which the family bring their water for

ter and entertainment. Shortly after I had
dismounted and xoen my horse attended to,
two pale, sickly looking womon came to the
gate, each di-ivin a little bull calf attached
to a plow They seemed thoroughly wearied
out, and touched ray sympathy. They were
dressed in cloth spun and woven by their
own hands. Their heads were protected by
old fashioned sun bonnets, and their shoes
badly worn. Pretty soon they were joined
by a young mountaineer, apparently about
& years old, with an ax on bis shoulder.
He was six foot tall, a reinnrknbly handsome
man, and proved to Ins tho husband of one of
tho women, while' tbo older was his mother.
1 was as kindly received and treated as
hospitably as their means allowed. Un en
tering tbo door of the house 1 found myself
stunned for an instant by receiving a severe
blow upon the forehead. 1 then discovered
what I afterward found to be a custom
amoug mountaineers that in cutting the
door, at luast one more log should have beeu
taken out, and unless you humbly bowed
your head you are reminded of tho incivility
by a bump on tbe forehead.
There is a scarcity of chairs in most of all
tbe mountain houses, thero generally being
only enough for the adult members of tho
family. The visitor, however, is given the
most comfortable seat, while the family find
accommodation on the beds and boxes in the
room, The wealth of the mountaineer seems
to rest in bed quilts, and you see these cov-
ings piled up in the corner of tb room as

and purchase calico with which to make more
quilts. When one of the girls marries, this
is her principal dowry. You find the room
filled with beds, and they are stuck every
where it is possible to place one. Their litera
ture is of the crudest kind, consisting of sev
eral Grior's almanacs, dating back a number
Of years, and perhaps two or three odd vol
umes of old novels, or a well thumbed school
book. The room is decidedly uncomfortable.
There are numerous cracks in the floor and
walls, through which the keen wiud whiatlea
The meals aro prepared in the other room
at an open fiiplace, where is also kept the
loom and spinning wheel. You aro given a
eat at the table, but the chair you occupy is
mo low that your plate is about on a level
with your chin, and eating is a decidedly dis
agreeable undertaking. You are given a
grtasy old knife, with one side of the La mil o
broken off, and a fork with a single prong.
Your plate is the old style blue rimmed crock
ery, with a dirty crack nearly through it.
The tablecloth has been stained yellow with
the numeral meals eaten upon it since tho
last wash, day, and it is stiff enough to stand
alone ou its corners. Friad hogs' meat, float
ing in grease, is invariably served, and this is
passed to you in the skillet, from which you
are expected to help yourself. The piece of
corn bread is also passed by hand, and as it
is several Inches thick and cooked very hard,
it requires a pretty strong grip of the fingers
to break it If you are given coffee, iy ia
nothing but weakened water. If there- is
butter on the table, it is a white stuff.
When bedtime ccro&s one of the beds in the
room is pointed oat as your place of reposo.
Perhaps there are several females in the room,
and you of course wait for them to retire be
fore disrobing for the night. You will, bow
ever, find yourself disappointed. No more
attention is paid to your presence by these
women than were you a log of wood, and they
will koep their seats by the fire, smoking and
dipping snuff. When you havo retired, they
will go to sleep in another bed in the same
room, and perhaps not removed two feet from
the one you occupy. Even when thero are
two rooms in a house all the beds will fre
