merly Secretary of State, but now in
Sweden. The truth shall and must be
krii'wn all over this country.

TJif- ).al-t Met hot! or Swindling. -
A vlry ingenious tricky by which a
irajig Og swindlers are making money by
mutilaai g lank. notes of the denomina
tion of f vo dollars, has recently come to
uurnotate. The dodge consists oft-akin."-
lan ,:?!: out of nine, and is so man-.-?-
there is but one pasting to
c;i..h fi ) ihi manufactured notes. The
niii.vw'oV bills are taken, and from the
right n!jthe Qrt one-tenth is sliced off;
from tt rit.Lt of tLe second two-tenths;
from tliii' third, three-tenths, and so on
to namer uirse, from which nine-tenths
are takea from the riht, or what
amount i -to the same thing, one-tenth
from lh left. Number one is pasted as
it is wit a tenth gone from the right ;
the oneitenth taken from number one, is
parted C the residue of number two.
Ji.im wiih two-tenths had been taken ;
tlie e tv tenths are made to answer the
plaeo oJ the tliice-tenths taken from
r.u oiber ilree, and so on through. Thus
five Irn SoILr notes are completed, leav
iug the i oiiginal number nine, with a
ietli gV fro "ii each bill, and in a dif
ferent jSace on every one, and a smal
ingenious pasting makes the loss imper

A man will die for want of die in five
minute::, for want of sleep in ten days,
for want of water in a week, for wnt of
food at varying intervals, dependent on
-t"uutien, habits of life, and the cir--uiustxu.es
cf the occasion. Instances
have been sriven where- persons have
hern s.-iid to live many weeks without
oaring a particle of food ; but when op
portuniiics have been oftered for a fair
investigation of the case, it has been in
variably fb'.uid that a weak and wicked
fraud hu3 been at the bottom of it.
'.lu the 28th rf August the captain of
a Dostnn whaler was wrecked. For
eight days he could not get a drop of
water or a particle of food. On the day
of the wreck he weighed one hundred
and ninety i ounds, and when re.-cued,
he weighed one hundred pounds. A
taaspoonflil of brandy was given to each
sailor, but before they could be taken on
board the vessel which saved them, they
became unconscious, zed remained so for
two days, but all evcatrinlly recovered.
Many persons have been killed by eating
-too much after having fasted for a long
time. The safe plan of proceedure, and
tbat which every reader should bear ia
mind, is to feel the way along, as per
sons who are traveling in the dark and
fear a precipice ahead. There can be no
rule given, because there are so many
modifying circumstances. Give a tea
spoonful of hot drink at a time, and, if
thert. are-no id ?cfs, repeat in Qve
minutes, and the same amount of soft
fiod, boiled rice, soitened bread, or gru
el. f.rtha stomach is itself as wrik as
the sufferer ij proportion, and can only
mnn-ige a very .mall amount of food.

The Lord" Chief Justice has very
properly decided that a horse race is not
a game of c hance. The whole thins is
a mathematical certninty ; the horse that
is able to lay his fott down the farthest
apart in the shortest time wins the race,
if his wind holds out and he isn't jock
eyed. It is pure sciene?.

The Burlington and Missouri Railroad,
i which has already done to much to ad
vertise the State of Nebraska and to
furnish. generous facilities for those com
ing hithcrward, has recently written the
following letter to Mr. Train, making,
as will Le seen, very liberal offer, and
showing a disposition to aid him in the
great work w hich he has undertaken, of
bringing here a large number of French
Besides being of general interest, it
contains valuable information which is
worthy of the widest circulation :
New Yosk, June 2', 1871.
George Francis Train, J?sj.t 15o Al'tdl-
son Avenue, 2sew York:
Pea u Sir: In reply to your tele
gram asking what inducements we can
offer for colonizing twenty thousand
French Communists, Wi.uld say : You
being well acquainted with the character
of the lands in the State of Nebraska, in
which a majority of our lands lie, having
traveled extensively through tdat coun
tty. it is unnecessary for me to enlarge
upon the natural advantages the country
south of the Platte river offers to the
immigrant, and particularly to the French
immigrant, of w hose peculiar character
istics, dispositions, and need, you, from
your late intimate relations with that
pcorde, understand so well, but simply
offer for your consideration the following
First The Burlington and Missouri
River Railroad being a portion of tho
great Atlantic and Pacific; line, runs
through Nebraska, and traverses one of
the very finest parts of the State. The
Company have receive i a grant of nearly
two nv.il ons of acres of land along the
line of their railway. The State of Ne
bra.-ka is so rapidly fillimr up that the
best locality for colonization parties to
settle on the line of the Burlington and
Missouri River Railroad is now west of
Lincoln, the capital of the State. There
the climate is pur and healthy. The
winters short, mild and dry, and the
sprinsr, summer and autumn months are
delightful, the country generally undu
lating prairie land, drained by a splendid
system of rivers and stream, and the
soil is a rich, vegetable mould, capable
of producing the heaviest crops of wheat
and other cereals.
Second Here the emigrant can buy
lands from the railroad company, in any
quantity from 40 acres upwards 011 ten
years credit, at six per cent, interest, at
prices ranging from $4 00 to $12 00 per
acre no installment of the purchase
money required until the third year.
I Here the emigrant can settle upon unoc
cupied Government lands, obtaining an
eibty acre farm i'ree. Settlers coming
in parries and wishinar to settle together,
can here be provided with contiguous
bodies of land, on the very liberal terms
mentioned above.. .........
from any part in France to a farm in Ne
braska would be about bixty dollars.
YV c can give the very lowest tare from
New York to destination that can be
Fourth On arrival of parties of fifty
to one hundred heads of families a guide
will be provided to see tho emigrants
safely to their new home3 ; and parties
coming thu together need be in no fear
of the land sharks who iufest the sea
ports, for they will be taken in charge by
the Company's agent, who will see that
no impositions are practiced.
Fif.h The time from any city in
France to Nebraska will l-c it bow, three
weeks, and emigrants should be partieu
lar about the luggage they bring with
them. Let them bring only personal
baggage. Furniture, farming utensils,
ic. , can be bought at the end of their
journey much cheaper than the sauiacan
Sixth Arrangements should be made
to prov.de the emigrant with bills of ex
change. They should also be provided
with an order drawn n me, for a ticket
to, and sta ing their destination, vpnn
tucir paying the rate of fare agreed up
on, between Mr. iW;e, yourse'f and
myself. Otherwise, without order drawn
on oi'e, they would be compelled to pay
the regular emigrant rate of fare from
New York to their destination. Fur
ther, in the case of a number comimr in
rrtiri3-rtatKl bcttrre," f or the purpose j
tf settling together, it worn be wed to
inform me beforehand of the time of
their intended departure from the coast
of Fiance, and by w hat steamer they are
to sail, that a guide may be in readiness to
accompany them West.
