Health in Literature.
If one desires life, says the Yon'.h'd
Companion, he desires a goo 1 tl.iriff,
lrovitled he can do its wo:k. He
should, however, heed the advice of an
English medical writer. "The first
things," lie says, "to which one enter
ing the profession of literature mut
m:ike uj) his mind, are to be respect
able and healthy."
Many men of genius have left belvnd
tliem but fragments instead of com
pleted work, because they would not
live respectable lives. Uurns ruined
hs usefulness by drink and idleness
Cow per, on the other hand, w;u fo
afllicted with a natural gloom as to be
often tempted to suicide. His life -was,
to quote his last words, ' unutterable
misery." Yet his writings exhibit but
a faint trace of this melancholy tend
ency. Daily exercise, temperate meals
and a i unctual observance of regular
hours of study and ret, preserved his
reason, and enabled him to do much
good wo;k.
Thomson, the author of "The Sea
son'?," says the writer already quoted,
"faded away from lazy and self-indulgent
habits." Dr. Samuel Johnson
was scrofulous, hypochondrical, corpu
lent, and averse to bodily exertion. He
was passionately fond of eating an I
drinking, yet he restrained him e'f,
walked a good deal, and worked stea l
ily s nd patiently. Later in life lie
abstained entirely from wine, because
he thought it injured his health. He
rested his mind with spoitive conver
sation, and even when his body broUe
down, the retention of his mental fac
ulties rewarded him for the care he
had laken to preserve his health.
Robert Sou! hey, who made literatuie
a healthy and successful profession,
lived a very rational life amid the fresh
air and quiet of a country home. He
ass 'dated wilh congenial and loing
spirits, to k regular exerci-e, main
tained a frugal table, worked industri
ously, and lived temperately and
chastely. His mental powers abode
with him in old age aud his memory
is blessed.
The more delicate the machinery of
the body of a literary man, the easier
is it disarranged. The more sensitive
his mind, the more readily may it be
clouded. Therefore, if he would eo -linue
useful, he must take care of his
Asphaltlc Wood Pavement.
Recently at the Society of Engineers,
London, a paper was read by Mr. Hen
ry S. Copeland on "Modern Roadway
Construction." The author first ad
verted to ti e extent to which the work
of road making was constantly goin
on at the present time, and i.o iced the
progress made by the various nations
of antiquity, the stale of deiay into
which the medieval roads had been al
lowed to fall, and the various attempts
made to improve them since the begin
ning of the present century. He then
d scribed the principal sys ems of road
way coiistruc'vion now in u.e, and
pointed out the extent to which, h:
considered, they met, or failed to meet,
the requirements of a good modem
roadway; namely, safety, easy traction J
noiselessnes, freedom from dust and'
mud, durability, facility, and cheap
nets of con-ti uclion. maintenance and
repairs to itself, and to the gas and wa
ter mains, etc. He explained the pr n
ciples .upon which, with a view to
avoiding the defects of pievious sys
tems, he h;:d d s gned the asphaltic
wood pavement, the use of which w-
now increasing. Th's pavement con
si.its of a bed of concrete, with a layer
of a phalL over it. Upon this are laid
tianverse courses of red pine blocks,
with intermediate spaces. Tho spaces
are filled in partly with heated mastic
aspha t, and then with coarse lime and
gravel grout, flushed with hot air, to
the surface of tlu read way. About ; n
Huh of coare gravel is then spread
over the roadway and left to be worked
in by the traffic. The author finally
examined into the expense of construc
tion and maintenance of the various
systems of roadway, drawing the con
clusion that though, for town roads
macadam was the cheapest in original
cost, was by far the most expensive
over a term of years, whereas, although
asphaltic wood pavement cost more at
first, it was cheaper, over a lengthened
period than macadam, or most other
roadways; and would compare favora
bly with other systems, in that ana
most of the requirements of a gOo-d
modern roadway.
A rrcnilnm Orchard.
Prof. Real, of Michigan, makes the
following statement iu regard to a pre
mium orchard of that State. "The
older nrt of the orchard was set about
twenty years ago. About half of tne
trees were rOf it-grafts, and the other
half natural iruit, which has since been
top-grafted. In the beginning, Mr. L.
II. Bailey, of South Haven, the owner,
was strongly impressed in favor of top
grafting trees of natural fruit, but he
now confesses that he sees no differ
ence in the bearing, growth t r haidi
ness of the trees propagated in these
two different modes. The trees are
set forty feet apart, in squares, which
is seven to ten feet more than is com
monly practiced. They now evidently
need all the room they have. From
former experiments, I know the roots
reach across each other, from tree to
tree, all over the orchard. The e trees
generally bear full every other year,
though some bear moderately every
year, and a few bear heavily every
year. This year there is about a fifth
cf a cr p of fruit more than can be
said of any other large orchard in the
For some years, Mr. Eailey has ma
nured the ground all over heavily once
in three years, lie also mulches a part
oE the time with brush, straw, etc,
He plows about once in three years,
and prefers at that time a heavy dress
ing of horse manure and sawdust; the
greater the proportion of manure to
the sawdust, the better it suits him.
For some years the owner has not
been able to fill his orders for apples.
One of the chief reasons is that he
raises a good deal of fine fruit, and
never ships any but first-class, extra
j apples.

Cheap Articles.
A ricent writer sagely rein irks that
excellence and cheapness cannot g
t gether, an l w e would save ourse ves
much aunoyai ce and ilisappointment
by leco-n zing and remeru'-ering t!ie
fact. He adds:
The house which the c n'ractor
builds too cheaply will invariably have
weak walls, woo I work t'tat w.ll shrink
a' the corners, plastering that will dio;
off, and paint that will cnuk. How
can it I e otherwise? The luilderwil

tailor will rot put good ma erial and
s;.il!cd labor in the suit of
which looks as good as the best, but is
s. Id at a price tar below what is asked
lor the g nuine article. It cannot be
doiie, and it should not be expected;
but rather those who are compel ed to
buy cheaply should philoscphica 1
make up their minds to bear the c us
quences that must follow cheap pur
chases. Tae cost of anything, a d c c -sequeiitly
its viiue, is measured bv
two things: quality of material and
the l..bor employed to make it. The e

I n 1 trade, bo h O imtal aud Euiope

l'er.-ian Gu.f, has been diverted to tin
waterway. Tne compeliti -n of Indi:
and China in silk aud se.arne s-eu
through the c iiial I. as sensibly affected
the value of these p o lucts; the !a e
discovery of alazuine has rendered
valueless the cultivation of madder for
frxpoit; and the diveision of large n im
bersof Moslem pilgrims from a l p.uts
of the East (who had hitherto made
Damascus their point of arrival and
departuie, with niuc'i profit to the
cit) to the sea route by the canal, h s
contributed, in no small degreo, to its
downward progress. Hou-.e lent has
