iC.l HEST0R1NC GRAY HAIR TO ITS
KATURAL VITALITY AND COLOR.
Ir Is a r.ioet agreeable dressing, which
is v.t once harmless and effectual, for pre
fer, iiig ilie liair. It restores, ritb. tlie
f:! iss and freshness of youth, faded or gray,
l:j.:h:, atil-etl hair, to a rich brown, or deep
Hack, as may be desired. By its use thin
hair is thickened, and baldness often
th u ;h not always cured. It checks falling
tu ill? hair immediately, and causes a bew
growth iu all cases where the glands are
ii.t th'cayed; while to brashy, weak, or
o:h'.M ise diseased hair, it imparts vitality
a:.J i.rcnth, and renders it pliable.
The Vioor cleanses the scalp, cures and
prevails the formation of dandruff; and,
by iis cooling, stimulating, and soothing
projicrties, it heals most if not all of the
humors aud diseases peculiar ta the scalp,
keeping it cool, clean, and soft, under
which conditions diseases of the BCalp and
hair .ire impossible.
As a Dressing for Ladies Hair,
The Tigob is incomparable. It is color
less, contains neither oil ner dye, and will
not soil white cambric It imparts an
agreeable and lasting perfume, and as an
article for the toilet it is economical and
unsurpassed in its excellence.

Dr. B. J. Kendall & Co.. Cents : In ret.lv to
your letter I will say that my experience with
Kendall's Spavin Cure has been very satisfac
tory indeed. Three or four years ajro I procur
ed a bottle of your agent, and with it cured a
horse of lamenecs caused by a spavin. Last
seation my horse became very lame, and Iturn-
eu inm out inr a it w weeks wneti ne became
better ; hut when I put him on the road he got
worse, when I discovered that a rio-bone was
forming. I procured a bottle of Kendall's
Spavin Cure, and with less than a bottl eaMred
him so that he is uot lame, neither can the
buneh be found.

As she stood y her leeaa ia the rosy light,
Aad her yevag eye, hopefully glad aad cleat.
Followed afar the awallew'a fight.
Aa seoa as the dir' Irat Uaka are done,
WaUe yet I ran freah aad strong," aald she,
'I wiU hasten te weave the beautiful web
Waeee pattera ia kaowa te aeae hut ana.
I will weave tt dee. I wUI weave It fair.
Aad ah! hew the colors will glow t" she said.
So fadeleaa aad i trong will I weave my was
That perhaps it will live after I ant dead "
But the morning honra aped en apace ;
The air grew sweet with the breath of June;
Aad young hid ly the waiting loom.
Tangled the threads as he hummed a tune.
"Ah! life is so rich aad full," she cried.
And room is short though the days are long!
This aoen Z will weave my beautiful web,
I wi I weave it carefully, line, and strong."
But the sua rose high in the cloudless sky;
The burden and heat of the day she bore;
And hither aud thither she raine and went,
W hile the loom stood still aa it stood before.
"AS! life la too busy at noon." ahe aald;
"My web muat wait till the eventide.
Till the common work of the day la done.
And 'my heart grows calna la the alienee
So. one by one, the hours passed on.
Till the creeping shadows had longer grown;
Till the house was still, and the breezes slept.
And her singing birds te their nests had

"And bow I will weave my web," ahe aaid,
Aa ahe turned te her loom ere aet of ana.
And laid her hand ea the shining threads
To aet them la order, one by one.

"And the pattern ia blurred, aad the colors

At the foot of the cone of Vesuriui
there is now to be seen the nevr station
of the railway- which ascends to the
summit of the old crater, and in future
will spare thu, lover of natural pheno
mena a wcarUome climb. The station
is situated ou a level spot on the west
side of the mountain, about half-au
hour's walk from the Observatory.
The constructors of the railway have
adopted the American double iron
rope system. There are two lines
of rails, each provi.ied with a carriage
divided into two compartments and
capable of holding six person. While
one carriage goes up the ether comes
down, thus establishing a counter
poise which considerably economize!
the steam of the stat oa.try trac
tion cugiuc The incline is extremely
steep, commencing at 4'J decrees, in
creasing to 63 degrees and continuing
at itO degrees to the summit. Every
possible precaution has been taken
against accident, and the railway itself
is pro tec led against possible Cows of
lava, by an enormous wall. . T.ie ascent
will be made in ci-ht or ten min
utes, while before it required from
one to iwo hours. To obtain the nee
ess.iry supply of water, large covered
cisterns havo been construe ted, which
in winter will be filled with the snow
that often falls heavily on Vesuvius.
This snow will be quickly melted by
the internal heat, and, besides the wa
ter thus obtained, the frequent rain
fall will also be conducted into cis
terns. An elegant cafe restaurant cap
able of accommodating a hundred per
sona will be attached to the station.
Above the entrance to the latter is an
ample terrace supported on columns',
whence an enchanting view is obtain
ed uot only the of the Gulf of Naples,
but also those of B:ie and Gaeta, each
dotted with islands, while to the north
spreads the luxuriant plain of Caserta,
bordered by the distant Appenuines.
As workers in metal, especially
bronze, the Japanese have mo rivals. I
do not speak of large figures, for these
they never attempt. It is in small
groups and natural objects, such as the
evcry-day wants of life require, either
for ornament or use. Sir Itutherford
Alcock says, in speaking of these works:
"A very competent judge in such mat
ters, Mr. Hunt, one of the juror of the
International Exhibition, onco said, in
answer to my inquiry whether the ar
tists and skilled workers in metal, em
ployed by the first jewelers and sil
ver.miths in London, could produce
equally good specimens of their art,
"that they might, but only at such a
1)ricc as to preclude any chanee of sale."'
le also added that, "after careful ex
amination, he wasconvinced the Japan
ese were in possession of some means
not known to Europeans, of forming
amalgnms, and of overlaying one metal
on another, and in the most minute
aud delicate details, introducing into
the same subject, not covering an inch,
silver, gold, bronze, etc, so as to make
a variegated picture of divers colors."
It is now almost too late in the day
to find these rare works for sale, either
in Japan or the foreign markets, yet
occasionally they can be picked up,
and when once found there should be
no hesitation about purchasing. The
writer has in his possession a little
basket in bronze, about the size ol
canary bird's nest, standing Upon three
legs, each formed of three strips of
bamboo tied together with a bit of

tails that it must have been cast from
the natural object, but the wonder is
how it could have been done. It is
not uncommon to find Japanese bronzes,
and even iron pots, with flowers or
birds, or a dragon in almost full relief,
upon them. The writer once saw a
bunch of chrysanthemums, with their
numerous juxtaposed petals as perfect

a thousand vases had to be cast, each
with a flower in relief on the side, and
if each rase was to be of precisely the
same pattern, a separate model in wax
would be prepared for the casting of
each, and the same labor would be ex
pended in producing every one that
was expended on the production of the
first. The class of bronzes to bo found
in the hands of dealers, especially the
larger pieces, su-e very inferior; but
many of the smaller ones, representing
groups of marine plants, ' the lotus,

Poultry Houses aad Hemes.
Old Farmer la Rural Home.
There is so much said in the papers
about poultry its profits, advantages,
etc., and so many fine varieties shown
at the fairs and such large returns fig
ured out of the business that a staid
old farmer, even as I am, can't keep off
the "lever"' entirely. Nor would It be
well to hold it at arms' length, for
poultry-keeping is an employment
pretty well suited to the young folks
and the old men on the farm. If I
can't labor in tbe field, I can care for
the chickens and turn an honest penny
.thereby ; and, what is better, have
something agreeable to employ a por
tion of my thoughts and time.
1 am not in the poultry business yet
only cogitating upon it. True, we
have thir'.y or forty fowls of two or
three breeds, running loose about the
premises, sometimes scratching up the
garden, sometimes tearing down the
grain in fields near the barns, and al
ways in mischief, or getting killed by
hawks, skunks, or some other vermin.
Sontetimes we get plenty of eggs to
eat, . and then something else gets
them. But we shouldn't be selfish.
The chickens are always late, because
they hatch themselves out in the grass,
and skulk around so long in the tall
weeds and bushes in the fence corners,
that they can't grow, and are, therefore,
late in becoming hens; in fact, behind
time in everything. Now, this isn't
keeping poultry; it is letting the
fowls, and in a very poor way, keep
themselves. I am going to reform the
practice on this farm, and merely
write to tell my plans and get some
First, I shall make the poultry de
partment distinct from the other farm
operations just as separate as though
the farm and the fowls had different
owners. The buildings and yards
shall be arranged so that the fowls
need not necessarily range beyond
their limits at any season, though, if
at certain times it should be of advan
tage to give them more liberty, it may
be allowed. The poultry department
must not be dependent upon the farm
for support, as a herd of shorthorns
would be, for instance, but a specialty
on an independent basis. It must
stand or fall on its own merits, paying
for all it consumes, and receiving cred
it for all its products.
The yard shall be just one acre in1
exteut, and inclosed with a tight, high
fence, picketed on the top, so as to bar
out, as much as possible, all intruders.
Fortunately there is a spring situated
so I can have fresh, running water in
the yard. It is also now partly set
with fruit tree, but about one-third
of it in the center is open, and there I
fancy I can grow sunflowers, which
will both shelter and feed the poultry.
Now, the buildings puzzle me some
what. I imagine there ought to be
kept two hundred stock fowls on this
ground, and not more than fifty should
be put in one house. Suppose) I put a
house in each corner to accommodate
fifty stock fowls; will it be crowding
them too much ? Or would it be bet
ter to put a large house in the center
of the yard, and have some chicken
coops in the corners?
At any rate, the houses should be so
made as not to freeze in winter. As
the ground is naturally well drained, I
shall drop th. bottom of the house be
low the surface from two to three
feet, and then bank some against the
wall on the outside. Then on the
south side I shall put a low' lean-to
covered with sash. It will make a
nice runway iu cold weather. Plenty
of sunshine, plenty of earth, dryness
and warmth, plenty and varied food,
and not overcrowded quarters.
Well, I am growing a stock of Light
Brahmas. I am going to have no oth
er variety. They are good layers and
good for the market. I will report
progress in the future ; but, meantime,
won't some of your experienced poultry-keepers
tell me whether my plans
are practical, and wherein they can be

The head of the American Exchange
In Europe, Mr. Henry F. Glllig, of
London, a gentleman who is good au
thority on international travel, and
who ia now on a visit to this country,
says that the emigration movement in
foreign lands, and particularly in
Great Britian, is rising into propor
tions so vast as to suggest startling
possibilities. The matter is already
attracting the attention of British
statesmen, who are becoming- appre
hensive that a very important percen
tage of its laboring classes will this
year be lost to the population of Great
Britain by emigration to America.
The belief Te freely expressed by
persons familiar with ocean travel that
within eighteen months one million
and a half of souls will bo added to
the population of the United States
by immigration, and this acquisition
will be of a higher order than has been
common heretofore. The fact that
many English emigrants are already
drawing on the American Exchange
in London for letters of credit and
drafts in sums averaging from 1,000
to 5,000 is a suggestive indication of
the kind of people who are this year
seeking to become a part of our nation.
American tourists annually expend
$100,0 K,000 to $200,000,000 in Euro
pean sight-seeing, but if one-quarter
of the new immigrants of this year
shall bring from $5,000 to $10,000
a piece to America for investment, we
can afford to let the traveling expense
account of roaming Yankees in Europe
rise into its hundred millions.
The causes of the increase of immi
gration are apparent, (lood times in
America; hard times in Europe. Peace
in the New World ; wars and rumors
of war in Old. Oppression abroad,
under monarchies; lvoedom beneath
the starry flag of our Republic Add
ed to these considerations is the pow
erful attraction of the many rich and
beautiful acres of the United States
and Territories acres which are in a
double sense priceless.

MURDER AT LOLISTILLE.
The Citizens of that Quiet Barg Were
The rumor reached us yesterday
morning that a murder had been com
mitted at Louisville. Sheriff Hyers,
Deputies Murphy aid McElwain, Cor
oner Gass, Dr. Hall and lawyer Mor
rison took the 9:40 train for that place
and found the excitement very intense.
It seems that one Ambrose Fiedtr
leir?, engaged at the stone quarry, was
lodging with a German shoemaker,
Henry Heftneister, and about 12 o'
clock, Thursday night, was taken sick,
got up and went out to walk areund;
as he was returning to the house a
charge of goose-shot struck him in the
right breast, fired from the doer or
window of the house of the shoemak
er. These facts were made manifest by
marking the course of the scattering
shot; but during the examination Tlof
meister irmly denied the charge of
having done the shooting, and that his
gun was in the house loaded, which
proved to be a fact. Late last evening,
however, a telegram received by Sher
iff Hytrs stated that Hofmeister bad
confessed the deed, but it was through
mistake that Fiederlein was killed.
Tie had Veen bothered ceaiderably
of late by numerous boys, who had
broken out windows and done ether
damage by throwing stones and club
at his house, and he had prepared for
them a punishment which he inflicted
open an innocent and unsuspecting
party, whom he claims he mistook for
the boys, who, he suppose 1, were about
to give a repetition of their past wrong
doing. The Coroner's jury found that
Fiederlein came to hit death from the
effct of a gun-shot wound inflicted by
the hand of Henry Hofmeister.
The guilty man is now confined in
our jail, wher he will remain till his
i trial takes place.

Jew Style ef Bonnet.
Yellow Tuscan and Leghorn straws
are the leading styles, as being adapted
to the present desire for yellow shades.
Satin straw's, with yellowish tinge and
satin luster, are also noticeable, yet
perhaps not more so than yellow Milan
braids. Then there are fancy straws
of both high and low degrees; these
being quite expensive, and formed of
fine yellow straw lace work, while in
descending changes we discover all
maunerof fancy-colored straws. Some
times these are of one eolor through
out, being dyed in fashionable shado
of garnet, bine, etc., or, more generally
display alternations of color. Here
the colored braids may run in parallel
rows, or be disposed iu stripes, as, for
example, where four or five uarrow
eolorcd straws alternate with an equal
number of yellowish onos, an equal
space of yellow straw only then ap.
pea ring, after which the colored al
ternations are seen once more. This is
quite a favorite idea, vet not mora so
perhaps than fhe dyeing of the straw
at intervals throughout the bonnet, by
which regular touches of the color ap.
Eear, but not in any one continuom
mid. Other straws are in the natural
color, and woven in a rather subdued
rough-and-ready style, while again
we see combinations of plain and fancy
weaving, as, for instance, where the
crown is of plain straw and the brim
fancifully wrought. It is worthy of
remark that in a majority of cases the
yellow straw which coiubino with the
colored are of the Tuscan order, thut
evincing the partiality shown such
leading ideas. Tnrough straws of
every kind we may observe at times
the interweaving of casumere colors,
which are re lined or bold, according
to the quality of the bonnet, and some
white chips are quite clou Jed over, not
only by these cashmere mixtures, but
by lines of other le.idiug colors, such
