It Is a most agreeable dressing, which Is at once Larmless aud effectual, for pre serving the hair. It restores, with the J 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.

Her pretty blonde hair is softer than silk. She's the loveliest monarch that ever was seen You ask of what country the darling is queen : Her empire extends no, to far-distant parts. She's queen of our household, the mistress of hearts. For scepter she lifts her soft, dimpled hands ; Her subjects all hasten to heed her commands ; Her smile Is bewitching, and fearful her frown, Aud all must obey when she puts her foot down.

THE PHILADELPHIA MIXT. Phildelphla Press. 4 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 iu 1811 1 no dollars from 1808 to 1838, except 1,000 in 1836; no half-dollars from 1797 to low, nor in isio; no quarters ueiore iao, none irom iaa to lu:i. none imui ito;s io hi, ana none in nu, i -jh.i no nc in 1817, '24, 2o, l.i ft j i . dimes before 1796, none in 1799, 1506.

'12, '13, '15 to '19, none in '24, '23 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 and refining. 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 copper from Lake Superior, and nickel lini our own duuo of Lancaster, lierc are piled huge bricks o" silver, tons in weilu; each urick weighs from 100 to loo pound.-, w.'iicii are ban. ilea as u.wugu Uiey were clay.

Hero, liter ally, gold and silver are in the air, for tho very clothes on the workmen, the sweepings from the floor, and water used tor was lung, are tound to be full of them, an I are worth $25,000 a year. irom the mciiing-room trie bars go to the rolling-room. The mighty revolv ing jaws, which in tho day put forth squirming and writhing ton -rues of gold, are now still. Iu the day. the ingots are passea tiirougu the rollers tho number ot 200 an hour to each pair of rollers, and come forth Just tho thickness of a coiu. Behind them, in the same room, are the cutting presses which, with a continual snap, snap, bite out 225 planchets of. plaiu coin pieces in a luiuute. Of these machines there arc ninr. As the planchets are cut they arc taken iu bo.ve3 to tha an nealing furuaocj, for the hard treat ment they have received make them brittle. -In those furnaces the metal is heated to red heat, when it be comes as soft and pliable as leather, and is then taken out to cool. Then the planchets go to the adjusting room, where they are weighed and inspect ed. If too light, they ar0 reniclted; if too heavy, but uear the weight, thev are filed to it; but if altogether too heavy, they, too, arc reniclted. From the adjusting room thev go to the cleauing-rooiii, wncrc, with acid and heat, they are thoroughly cleaned, then dried with sawdust au.fpe.m.ii-roast-cr arrangements. Massive monsters are the presses, of which tliere are ten, each capaoiu of turning out over a 100 coins a minute, which, if thev were double eagl;?-, would amount to $34, 009. Before the planchets are put in the coining-press they are milled, or have their edges turned up. Now comes the liuai operation, by which money is literally made. The amount of pressure retpured to m ike a perfect coin is from twenty to eighty tons the larger tiie coin the greater the weight. The phincncis arc put in a brass tube, and, with each impression of the press, are caught in two iron arms and placed on tho lower die, which is in the. bed of tho press, cor responding to the upper die, and, by the coming together oi those two dies are the coins struck.

Appcnzell. Harper's Magazine. Near to Sargans the Rhine becomes the dividing line between the Austrian Tyrol and East Switzerland. The Swiss Canton of Appcnzell "the lit tle land of Appenzcll' with its pas toral people and its queer customs, runs in here to get a peep at the pas sing river. These Appcnzcllers are a very democratic people, even for dem ocratic Switzerland. It is not only that every man has a voice in the law making that it is democratic, but it is also in tho primitive way in which a 1 " -a a-n. tne win 13 expressed, mere was a time when peoples chose their kinsrs cn masse on a field, and giving the tallest man the crown. Something very similar is practiced even now in little Appcnzell. "Kvni'V MftV rlnv tfi wlirJn rnlin population of the canton meet, an3 armed with swords and umbrellas, and led by a band of music, march out to a meadow, where the affairs of state ana the election ot onicers arc settled in a short time by tho sovcr eign people. The women of Appen- reu occasionally join in tins proces sion, and the grave looking officials rigged iu the uniform of state, gallant ly give to the ladies the best standing room on the green. A littlo platform for the town grandees is elevated, around which the procession halts and listens to a prayer. Then follow the allkirs of state, decided simply by a 6how of hands. Taxes are voted, tines laid, and officers chosen for the next year. In a few hours Appenzell's out door parliament is finished, and the people go to their homes and lay their swords and flags away to rest tor an other year. This has been Appcn zell's parliament for five hundred years. The lumber business is one of Geor gia's growing industries. It is esti m.itea that this year's product will amount to 900,uoo,000 leet, and will exceed m value 5,000,000. No indus try in the Slaic has assumed such pro portions iu tiie same period as has this in tiie past four years. In regard to the timoer interest of the wiregrass section it is stated that timber Is now ; bringing better prices than it has for l year. Tests of Steel and Iron. Nitric acid will produce a black spot on steel : the dai kcr the spot the harder the steel. Iron, on the con trary, remains bright if touched with nitric acid. Good steel in its soft stare has a curved fracture aud a uniform gray lustre ; in its hard state a dull, silvery, uniform white. Cracks, threads or sparkling particles denote bad quality. Good steel will not bear a white he.it without falling to pieces, and 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 a hiiiuincr into the cast iron: if poor, it will crush under the blow. A soft, tough iron, if broken grad ually, gives long 6ilky fibres of leaden gray hue, which twist together and cohere before breaking. A medium even grain with fibres denotes good iron, Badly refined iron eives a short blackish fibre on fracture. A very fine grain denotes hard steeiy iron, like lv to be cold-short and hard. Coarse grain, with bright crystal lized fracture or discolored spots, de notes cold-short, brittle iron, which works easilv when heated and welds well. Cracks on the edge of a bar arc indications ot hot-snort Iron. Good iron is readily heated, is soft under the hammer, aud throws out few 6parks. Interglacial Quartz Workers ta Min nesota. 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 glacial epoch. Overheated Rooms. 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. Last year there were driven into Nevada from eastern Oregon over 200,000 head of best cattle. Over 140, 000 crossed in one place. From the coast there went to Montana and the east over 200,000 head. This new deal commenced only two years ago. The evangelist Moody and Sanky passed through the Indian Territory, and while at Muskogee, in the Creek nation, Mr. Moody arranged to receive ten Indian girls from that nation, for whom he will procure free education at the young ladies' seminary estab lished by him at Northfleld, Mass. Under the old law marriage cere monies could be performed in Cali fornia by any jndge, justice of the peace, mayor, clergyman, or preacher of the gospel, but by an act of the present legislature they can be sol emnized only by a justice of the su preme court, judge of the superior court, justice of the peace, or minister of the gospel. TTonderful Head. HilladalphU Tinea. 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 have an evenly balanced mind, but it is that of a prattling infant. lie can not read, and never would try to learn even the alphabet, as his neck, although no weaker than might be expected in a person who has always been confin ed to his bed, was not strong enough to move his head without giviug him am. His parents nave had no child ut Charles. The father is dead, but the mother is with him. Both pa rents were healthy, of ordinary stat ure, and possessed the average physi cal development. Remarkable Rides. All the Tar Hound. More remarkable r!des than the fa mous ride to York are upon record. By dint of keeping constantly in the saddle and having relav of horses all along the road, the Prince de Linge contrived to cover the miles between Vienna and Paris over live hundred. as the crow flies in six davs. This performance was outdone by the Count de Maintenay, who rode the whols distance on one horse, without dis mounting. The Count, one of the most accomplished horsemen of his day, was attached to negotiate for the hand of Mary Louise, and wasdepuLed to carry to his impatient muster ins formal consent of the Emperor of Aus tria to the marriage, and the minia ture of the unwilling bride-elect. To expedite his journey, six of the finest horses in the Imperial stables were dispatched to different places on the route, that the Count mii'ht clian -e his mount; but the Hungarian road ster he bestrode at starling went so fast and stayed so well that the reUys were not called into service, and the matrimonial messenger arrived at his destination long before he was expect ed, but so exhausted that ht was fain to crave permission to be seated in the Emperor's presence as he delivered up the all-imp tant mission and repeat ed the Arcuuucr.es' message to her fu ture lord. A jcveied siiuil-box, sixty thousand francs, and the good Siecii lie had ridden, rewarded tiie count for his expedition. The Count de Maiiue nay's te! was repeated in 1874 by in Austrian lieutenant, who uu'.ertoo!c to ride his horse, Caindoe, from Vienna to Paris iu fourteeu days. He was unlucky enough to loose his way in the Black forest, and to waste seven hours, and was further delayed by an accident to his horse; nevcrihclc.-s he accomplished his task wiiu mors than two hours to spare. Some Celebrated 'Women. Londoa Queen. 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 fore, say that impressionable temper ament distinguishing all sympathetic people is either a strength or a weak ness, according to the character allied to it. As sympathy gives an angelic grace to virtue, food to genius, and steadfastness to social relationships, so it can degenerate into nothing but perilous, over-facile sensitiveness to the passing impressions of the mo meat. The wife of Franklin Rockway, of Collinsviiie, touu, youngest children put her two bed, the other to ttigm, leaving a lare kerosene lamp burning on a stand, and went beiow to entertain soma company. An hour later she went upstairs, and luuud that the lanr had exploded, scatter ing the oil and gias ail over the room without setting anything ou lira or wakuig the children. .
