Mr. James I. Fellows : Dear Sir During
the past two years 1 bare given your Com
pound Syrup of Hypophosphiies a fair though
somewhat severe trial in my practice, and am
able to upeak with oonfldenee of Its effects. In
restoring persons suflei'ingfrom emaciation and
the debility iollowing Diphtheria, it has done
wonders. I constantly recommend Its use in ail
affections of ihe throat and lungs. I :i several
cases considered hopeless, it lias given relief,
and the patients are fast recovering ; anion"
these are Consumptive and old Bronyii'.ai sulS
jects, whose diseases have insisted the other
modes of treatment. For impaired digestion
and in fact for debility from any cause, I know
of nothing equal to it. Its direct effect in
strengthening the nervous system renders it
Suitable for the majority of diseases. I am sir

The Child Musician.
He had played for his lordshlsp's levee.
He had played for her ladyship's whim,
Till the poor little head was heavy,
' And the poor little brain would swim.
Aud the face grew peaked and eerie,
Aud the large eyes strange and bright.
And they said too late "He is weary !
He shall rest for, at least to-night !"
But at dawn, when the birds were waking,
As they watched in the silent room.
With the sound of a strange cord breaking,
A something snapped lu the gloom.
Twas a string of his violoncello.
And they heard him stir in his bed,
"Make room for a tired little fellow,
Kiud God !" was the last that he said.
From Gar Hartford, (Conn.,) Corres
April 8th, 1880.
Mr. Editor: By request I write
you a few lines about this lovely Yau
kee city, Hartford, I will commence
by saying it is over fifty thousand
strong and is one ef the oldest cities
in the United States, having seen its
245th anniversary. But, strange as it
may seem, Old Time deals kindly with
it, for the older it grows the more hand
some and wealthy it becomes.
It is situated on the west bank of
the. Connecticut liiver, about fifty
miles from Long Island Sound, 114
miles from "Boating" as the Yankee
calls it , and 110 miles from New
York City. Its streets are very broad
and very regularly laid off:, and made
very pleasant by large and antique
oaks aud elms on either side. Before
the great fires of Chicago and Boston,
this was considered the wealthiest city,
according to its population, in the
United States. But the .principal In
surance companies being located here,
those fires greatly diminished the ca
pital of the wealthy citizens.
There are a great many interesting
incidents connected with the history
of this city, which would fill a volume,
it being the birthplace and residence
of many of the prominent men of our
The law-givtr and standard of our
language, Noah Webster, wai born
here in 1758. Barnum owns property
and spends much of his leisure here.
Cornelius Vanderbilt, Mark Twain and
a Lost of others too numerous to men
tion in this short epistle, also reside
This is largely a manufacturing
town, the aggregate value of manu
factures being about ten-millions per
The first steam locomotive ever con
structed was made here by Dr. Kins
ley in 1797.
The first Deaf and Dumb Asylum of
the United States was chartered hero
The handsome dwellings in and
around Hartford aro beyond descrip
. The public buildings are superb. The
new court house now in process ef
erection, will eost over a million of
dollars when completed. The new
State Capital built entirely of white
marble, cost over three-millions of dol
lars. It is a fine structure, profusely
decked with bronze and marble statues.
The Aetna, Charter Oak, Phoenix,
and Travelers' Insurance Companies
have their head quarters here.
The only diminutive public building
here is the State Penitentiary, which
speaks well for Connecticut.
The people of Hartford are regular
"down-easters." Everybody seems to
have been born and brought vp here,
and have no disposition to leave. Their
notions aro "out and dried," and aoth-J
ing short of an earthquake will ever
cause them to diverge from their regu
lar leutine of every day life. The on
ly real, original, unsophisticated, so
cial, off-handed persou here, is Mark
Twain alias Samuel C. He lives in
a pleasant house on Farpington Ave.,
and has his kitchen in an upper room,
so that his very sensitive olfactory
nerves may not be disturbed by the
unpleasant odors of the victuals, while
he is in his study.
One tiling surprised me. That was
to find just as many verdant country,
youths in this part of the country as
in the west. In fact, there seems to
be a surplus. They come in ti.wn eve
ry Saturday with their pants stuck in
their "butes," and their hands thrust
into theii - pockets. They saunter

A REPLY TO "AX INTERESTED LOOK
Plattsmouth, Apr. 12, 1880.
Ed. Herald: In reply to an article
which appeared in your paper of
March 25th, signed "An interested
looker on," of Weeping Water. I have
this to say to that gentleman (?) I only
gave my views upon the subject, of a
plan to build a warehouse, to be con
trolled and operated by the farmer and
grain buyers in conjunction. In it
neither asked to become an interested
party nor to become a stock oi share
holder in the enterprise; my only ob
ject being to have an expression of the
views of farmers and others upon the
merits of the proposed enterprise and if
it should prove an advantage to the
community at laree I should at least
have the satisfaction of feeling that I
had lent my feeble aid toward its f urth
ering if nothing more, but "Looker on"
has seen fit not to answer my article
or give his views on the subject, but
to make a cowardly and uncalled for
attack upon my character as a man of
business and an attempt to libel me,
under the guise of a christian and a
subscriber to the support of a church,
when he knows full well that he nev
er gave one cent in that direction, as
the lists and books of the said church
will testify. As to the charge he
makes of my misappropriating the
funds of said church and having a liti
gation in regard te the same, I can
prove tnem to be false, by the records
ef the church and the report of the
committee appointed to settle with me,
and can there show a correct account
of every cent entrusted to my care by
What this man thus attacks me for
I do not know and I have no desire to
have any further controversy with

Financial Condition of European
interesting comparison of ilio budgets,
national debts, and military expendi
tures of European States in 18G5 and
1879. First of all, as regard Germany,
her financial requirements in that in
terval havo more than doubled. In
1865 she rejoiced in the comparative
innocence of makin? both ends meet
with a budget of 31,000,000; but she
now finds it no easy task to satisfy the
public needs with 66,000,000. The
heaviest budgets in Europe are at the
present moment those of France and
Russia, France with an expenditure
of some 119.000,000, and Russia with
one of 107,000,000, the latter now
pan kin"; before England by some 22,.
000,000. In 1365, Russia like Ger
many required an income of less t han
half as much. Her budget then
ainouiitel to 51,000,000. There is
not an Euro; .can State but has increas
ed its expenditure since 18G5, the total
for a 11 Europe having risen from 3y 8,
000,U0J to 5S5,UOO,000. As regards
the nation tl ilcbU of the dillercnt
Eiirit-'!iii States the same in tv be said
of all, except England and Holland,
which alone show a certain diminution
of their debts. Russia especially haj
inairtged to brin up hers from a
mo lest 2:S,00 J.000 to t he respectable
ii.tte of u00,0'jo,000, and she lias been
closely followed by Spain and Italy,
France now ranking first of all; while
in 18G5 England was by far the most
heavily-burdonod, standing before
Kranoc to the extent of 250,000,000.
The total debt of the Sia.es of Europe
have risen from 1,200,000,000 to ,
324,000,000. But the most interesting
of all are those of the military expen
diture. Oi' a total expenditure for
Europe of 5S5,OO0,O00, 160,000,000
are devoted maintaining armies. In
1865, of 3Ji,OOJ,U00, 117,000,000 were
duvo.ed to this department. Here,
too, nearly every State has increased
its expenditure, Gerunuy, France,

A Tariff of Tips.
Periodically the question of tips to
servants crops up, and we are now in
one of these recurrent )eriods. The
other day, finding myself in the com
pany of several gentlemen who visit a
good deal at country-houses, I in
quired of them what they thought
was the average amount that ought to
be given'by a guest to the servants of
his host. This was the conclusion:
If without a servant, 10s. to the maid
who "valets' for any period above
one night; and 6s. for the one night;
for being driven to the station, 2s. 6d.
to tho groom or coachman ; for ono
day's shooting, 10a. to the head-keeper;
for several day's shooting, 2 to
the head-keeper; 10s. to the loader for
one day, 5s. per diem for several days ;
if with a servant, 2s. 6d. ought to be
given by him to the housemaid, and
nothing more to any indoor servant.
In no case should anything bo bestow
ed on the bland butler, who appears
with an itching palm to speed the
parting guest. Many, however, give
more than this; they present tho but
ler with a sovereign, and bestow as
much as. 5 on tho gamekeeper. My
friends, however, scouted these ex
travagances as neither expected nor
desirable.. "It a little depends," ob
served ono of them, "on whether I
think that I am likely to come back."
And he then related the following
story: The late Mr. George Payne
was at the country-house of a noble
man. He had been out shooting with
another guest, a mau of many virtues
but the one vice of being unsupnorta
ble. This guest asked Mr. l'ayuo
what he meant to give tho keeper.
"Five pounds," replied Mr. Payne.
"Surely," said the guest, "that is too
much; I think that I shall not give
him more than 2." "Well, to tell
you the truth," opined Mr. Pnyue,
"you would do better to give him
nothing, for they were talking about
you at the house yesterday evening
and they decided never to ask you hero
again." Another gentleman whom I
consulted about "tips" assures mo that
the above tariff is below the average.
Five pounds is frequently givon to the
head gamekeeper, aud he explains this
by say in" that a heavy tip is often re
garded as a bribe for being secured a
good place at a battue. This gentle
man gave a keeper tho other day 5 on
starting for a battue and the keeper in
thanking him said : "I am afraid that
I shall not be able to give you one of
the best places for they are all bespok
en, but I will do what I can for you."
A friend of hia once notified his keep
ers on the commencement of tho shoot
ing season that he would not allow
them to receive tips, but would put up
a box in the hall into which contribu
tions for them might be dropped;
they at once all resigned. As regards
the butler, this frieiul says that ho
does not dare to go away without
t - . i . . i i i
leaving a suustauiiai mar, ot ins re
spect for that dignified being, and he
also tips the groom of the chambers in
the house where thisomcial nourishes.
"Fools and their niobey soon part,"
was the observation that occurred to
me, but which I was too civil to make
when he recounted to me what it cost
him to visit a country-house.
A Chinese Dnckery.
A Chinese duckery is an establish
ment, either afloat or on shore, devot
ed to rearing or feeding ducks, which,
are, in most cases, salted smoked and
hawked about the streets of the largo
towns. I was much interested in ob
serving the mode of treatment.
The ducks were hatched out bv hot
sand, and divided into lots of 100 to
150. These arc taken to a stream as
far down as it is possible, and there a
temporary fence of wicker work is
erected, inclosing about twenty feet
square of the st ream ami Its banks.-
The ducks are placed inside this, and
soon toddle out into the stream and
come on shore again to sit under mat
sheds on the bank, which aro required
to keep the sun olf them.
When they are to be fed, a clean mat
is laid down on the bank, inside the
fence, and in the middle of the day,
under the shade mats. On this is
strewed rice, boiled and mixed with
sweet potatoes, etc., and made into the
consistency of dry dough ; this the
ducklings nibble at running to tho
8 1 ream whenever their little throats
get choked, so as to get a drink and
clear to commence again.
' In a 6inall way I tried to improve on
the Chinese plan by giving them their
food mixed softer, but it turned out a
miserable failure. The ducks, when
shaking their heads, splattered the
food over each others' backs, where it
stuck, and they did not thrive.
I was much 6truck with the way in
which the Chinese seemed to know
exactly how much "the ducklings
would consume at oue feeding, and
how little waste there was. A little
boy generally attended about five lots
of 150 or 200 ducks, and large streams
are made tq branch off into smaller
ones, so that each lot could have a fresh
run of clean water coming down on
them. When the feeding was over, tho
feeding mats were lifted and washed
below the second fence, and hung up
to dry for next time.
When the ground where the ducks
were fenced became dirty, which took
place in four or live days, in spito of
all precautions to keep it clean, the
lower fence was shifted above the up
per one, and the ducks put into it; this
gave them fresh, clean grouud,aiid they
seemed to thrive to perfection. As the
ducks grow, two lots of 150 are put to
gether,'then two lots of 300, aud so on;
the extent of fencing being increased,
and a boy dispensed with, the tirne
between feeding is extended and labor
When grown, they are herded in
flocks of some thousands by a man
carrying a long bamboo rod, and he
moves them from rice field to rice
field, where they puddle among the
mud and are fed for almost nothing.
They always get a tit-bit when they
come home to their sheds at night
(which are floored with dry earth, fre
quently changed aud used for manure)
this makes them very anxious to get
home, and they are quite as anxious to
get out in the morning, knowing there
is nothing to bo expected at home be
