It Is a most agreeable dressing, which
Is at once Larmless aud effectual, for pre

gloss ami freshness of youth, faded or gray,
ligh?, and red hair, to a rich brown, or deep
l lacl:, as may be desired. By its use thin
hair, is thickened, and baldness often
though not always cured. It checks falling
of the hair immediately, and causes a new
growth iu all cases where the glands are
not decayed: while to brashy, weak, or
otherwise diseased hair, it imparts vitality
and strength, and renders it pliable.
Tue Vigor cleanses the 6calp, cures and
I-re-.cnts the formation of dandruff; and,
l y iis cooling, stimulating, and soothing
r: ortjes, it heals most if not all of the
liuiu,i s and diseases peculiar to the scalp,
kecking it cool, clean, and soft, under
which conditions diseases of the scalp and
likir arc impossible.
As a Dressing for Ladies Hair,
The v ioor is incomparable. It Is color-

THE PHILADELPHIA MIXT.

The Unitcil Stales mint wa3 estao-
lished bv act of Congress on the 2d
of April, 1792, and a build in? was
soon erected on theeast snlcot beventn
near Market. The first machinery,
as well as motal. used, came from
Englan:!, and up to 1816 tho work
was altogether done by horse or Baud
power. During live years of the
mint s existence work has been sus
pended, owingr to the prevalence of
disease in the cit.v. The present build-
in on CheMiut near Broad, was fin-
hed in K . 3. It is built of vrlute
marble. the Grecian style. In 1854
it was nude thoroughly lire proof.
The following are some mterestinor
statements of the periods at which
time coin has been made, and of the
coinage: JN o eagles were coined irom
lSuo to 1837, inclusive; no half-eagles
in 1816 or 1S17; no quarler-cagles be
fore 1796, nor in 1800 or 1801, nor from
1800 to 1820, or in 1822, 1823, 1828, or

and '30: no hall'-dnnes in 19S, 1790,
1801, 1806 to 1828; no cents in 181o, a
few specimens in 1823; no half-cents
in 1798, 1801, 1812 to 1821, 1827 to 1830
1834, 1837 and 1810. A few half-cents
were struck every year from 1840 to
1857. . First $3 pieces in 1854.
The mints at Carson and San Fran
cisco coin gold and silver only. Tho
mint at Denver does not make coins.
Its operations are confined to assaying
But now the grim watch-dog of the
mint is waiting to go through the
building with us. All is silent and
still : the buzz and beat of machinery
has ceased ; the flashing colors of the
day are dead; but a dim, dull light
suffices to show the powerful agciita
of making money. Ou the left of the
hall, aa we enter, is the Treasurer's
office: on the right the cashier's, bjth
now deserted. Passing through the
hall to a yard on the left, is seen the
weighing room. Here all the precious
metal received is weighed. Gold from
California, Georgia, Montana, and
Jsova Scotia; silver from .Nevada, aud
tiie most of the world. Here comes
the valuable family plate to be melted
up, telling the story of decayed for
tunes ana destroyed hopes; just as the
lirst bricks of silver but i-eceiitly
wrenched from the bosom of mother
earth tell the tale of hopes realized
wild fortunes m uie. Here, loo, comes

Good steel in its soft stare has a
curved fracture aud a uniform gray
lustre ; in its hard state a dull, silvery,

sparkling particles denote bad quality.
Good steel will not bear a white

will crumble under the hammer at a
bright heat, while at a middling heat
it may be drawn out under the ham
mer to a fine point.
Care should ba taken that before
attempting to draw it out to n point,
the tract u re is not concave; and
should it be so, the end should be filed
to an obtuse point before operating.
Sicel should be drawn out to a fine
point and plunged into cold water;
the fractured point should scratch
glass. To test its toughness, place a
fragment on a block of cast iron; if
good, it may be driven by the blow of

it will crush under the blow.

Interglacial Quartz Workers ta Min
In 1876 Prof AVinchell found in and
around Little Falls, Minnesota, a
number of fragments of wrought
quartz in surface deposits underneath
the remains of the mound builders.
Prof Winchell, accordingly, fixed the
era of the quartz workers bei :n
that of the mound builders and the
close of the glacial epoch.
At a late meeting of the Historical
Society, at Minneapolis, Minn., Fran
cis K. Babbit gave an account of a
considerable deposit ot quartz chips
and implements found in regular
strata, which must have been formed
before the close of the glacial period.
The specimens consist of hammers,
implements, etc., both finished and
unfinished, together with chips struck
oil" from the articles in the process of
manufacture. The material of which
they are composed is principally com
pact, lustrous quartz, frequently mot
tled as if selected with an eye to the
artistic beauty. Tiie stratum is some
few inches in thickness, and lies in the
6oil a few feet below the surface. The
appearances indicate that this was
once the site of a manufactory of such
quartz objects, and this idea is upheld
by various considerations. There are
tools found such as would be used in
the manufacture of quartz articles, and
the whole stratum is mixed with
chips, which in many cases appear
stuck in the dirt just as they fell from
the hand of the unknown. Unfinished
implements are also found in more or
less advanced stages of manufacture.
It is not possible to fix the precise
point occupied by these remains in
the scale of the glacial epoch until the
drift features aud surrounding forma
tions of the locality shall be better
understood than now. Still it is cer
tain that the remains belong to a
people living before the end of the
last glacial period, because they are
deposited in a drift which is known
to ue of glacial origin. The hard pan
upon which the quartz formations lie
is probably of the first glacial period,
and the quartz may belong to an inter
The great tendencv in winter is io
keep rooms too warm. The founda
tion of pneumonia, pleurisy, and pul
monary consumption is frequently
laid in over-heated, ill-ventilated
apartments. The inmates become ac
customed to breathing hot, close air,
the system is toned down aud relaxed,
and a slight exposure to cold and wet
results in serious illness. The greater
deirree of health is obtained by per
sons who habitually take out-door
exercise, and the ripe old sge of our
forefathers can be ascribed in a great
measure to the tact that their houses
were open to not only the rentle
breezes of summer, but to the howl
ing blasts of winter. Log huts con
structed in its most primitive fash
ion, in many cases not even "chink
ed," give free access at all times to
the pure air, aud if the cold and
snow did enter, they brought with
them health and long life. A uniform
heat of seventy degrees is adequate
fnru a sanitary point ot view in any
weather, if that temperature is not
sufficient to give warmth, it is an in
dication that the person does not take
sufficient exercise, and the cure for it
is more miles than flannel. In the
coldest weather, when the ground is
like stone under feet, when there is
no drip from the caves, and when
snow lies on roofs, rooms should bs
ventilated. Pure air should be ad
mi tied through open doors and
windows, so that the oxygen consumed
by flame and by respiration may ba
replaced, and effete and poisonous
matter thrown otf by the body thor
oughly driven away.

Charles Erllng is a most remarkable
specimen of man. Ever sine his birth
he has been unable to stand upon his
feet, on account of the weight of his
head, which is of abnormal size. For
twenty-eight years, tbe length of his
life, he has been compelled to lie abed
continually. He was born in Burling
ton county, N. J. He lacks one inch
of being five inches in length, but
would probably have grown longer
had he been in the habit of takinr
physical exercise. His head appears
to be six times the ordinary size, and,
his mother says, has always been as
disproportionate in weight to the lest
of his body as it is now.
Tne measurement around the head at
the middle of the forehead is thlrtv-
three inches, while the line passing
over the crown and under the chin is
forty-four inches. The inuer corner
of the eyes are four inches apart the
distance from temple to temple is
thirteen inches, aud the bridge of the
nose is six inches below the upper
line of the forehead.
The trunk of the body is about the
same in size of many a biz fat boy that
walks the streets, but tha muscies are
soft and weak for want of activity.
The measurement around the chest is
forty-for r inches and around the waist
thirty-five inches. His legs, however.
are no thicker than those of an 8-year-old
boy of ordinary size.
He extends his hands to visitors, bids
them good-dajr and chats with them
in a childish manner. He seems to

Some Celebrated 'Women.
Women, often debarred from prac
tical knowledge of certain aspects of
life, yet obtain a reflected comprehen
sion through sympathy. Mrs. Brown
ing possessed the gift in a transcendent
al degree ; it vibratod on the chord of
poetic expression in her; Jane Austin
and Charlotte Bronte led retired lives,
but they had the power perpetually
to pass out of their circumscribed in
dividuality into that of others and
the genius to retain and turn to ac
count the fleeting impressions of their
passing contact with individuals. The
darlings and the ornaments of society
are the women who can throw them
selves best into the interest of the mo
ment. If to this sensitive nature be
longs a native sincerity, confidence is
attracted, friendships are made and
retained. Mme. Ilccamier is perhaps
the best type of this gift of social
sympathy allied to certain reality of
nature. She attracted the bust and
most gifted of her time when ae had
marred her beauty, poverty succeeded
wealth, aud partial blindness rendered
her infirm, her salon in the Aboaye
aux Bois was still the resort of the
eminent men and women of the peri
od. She was not a wit, she was al
ways somewhat shy, but she had the
wish to win love rather than admira
tion, and possessed the tact of draw
ing out the best gifts in others. She
had the genius of friendship ; her
steadfastness could not be shaken. She
incurred exile because she would visit
Mme. de Stael against all prudent ad
vice. She lost the chance of recover
ing hsr eye-sight because she insisted
upon attending M. de Ballancoe on his
death-bed, and for eighteen years she
attended M. de Chateaudbriand in his
age and infirmity. "We would, there
