recorded instances cf people who have
exceeded the age o'f one hundred

say that in the early part of the present
century a volume was published con
taining the names of more than 8,700
persons who had elaimed to be cen
tenarians, or for whom a claim was set
up by others. The compiler was in no

that came into his net. lie went up to
nine score years in his enumeration
and was apparently quite willing to he-

namely. Parr, Jenkins and the Countess
of Desmond. Thomas Parr, according
to the popular account, was born in
M8.'5; remained a bachelor till eighty
years of age; married in 15G.'I; lost" his
wife in 1595; married again in lG0:i;
and lived to see the year 10:55. In that
year the Earl of Arundel visited him,
and was so struck by his venerable' ap
pearance as to invite him to his town
mansion. Parr was brought by easy
stages to London, where he became
quite the lion of the season. Charles
1. -requested to see him. and asked
whether." as he had lived so much
longer than other men, he had experi
enced and known more in proportion.
"Yes, your Majesty," replied the old
man; "I did peiiauco at the age of
lOa." This penance was for some" pec
cadillo he had committed. The veteran
found the excitement of London too
inuch for him; the fatigue, the crowd
ing of victors who came to see him
and the unwonted luxury of his diet
carried him oil at the wonderful a"o of
Henry Jenkins, according to the
popular account, was born in 1501.
When a boy he carried a horse load of
arrows to Northallerton, to bo em
ployed by the English soldiers in resist
ing the invasion of James IV. of Scot
land, and he lived to see the 3'ear 1670,
when he died at Ellerton-upon-SwaJe
at the marvelous age of 1G9.
The Countess of Desmond is reputed
to have been born about 1461 and to
have lived on till about 1601, attaining
the age of one hundred and fort. .No
other very aged person has attracted as
much notice as she. lincon, in his
-"Natural History;" said that she "did
dentire twice or thrice, casting her old
teeth and others coming in their
place." Sir Walter Italeijrh stated
that she was married
in Edward IV.'s
time, and he himself saw her in 1589.
Sir William Temple was told a similar
account by Robert, Earl of Leicester.
Numerous minor incidents of her life
have been recorded.
Though still credited by many be
lievers in extreme longevity, there are
others who thoroughly disbelieve in its
possibility or at aiiy rate, probability.
Their grounds of unbelief aro varied.
In the first place, most of the alleged
instances occur in the humbler grades
of society, where registers and formal
entries are but little attended to; the
middle and upper classes, among whom
authentic records aro more plentiful,
occupy comparatively small parts in
Sometimes tombstones are rechiseled
to restore the halt obliterated inscrip
tion, and then the village stonemason,
puzzled by some of the partly obliterated
ligures and letters, makes a guess at
lliem and puts in the age or date which
6eems to him the best interpretation.
There is, or was, a tombstone in Con
way Churchyard, England, recording
the fact that Lowry Owens Vaughan
died in 1776 at the age of 192, and that
her husband, William Vaughan, died in
1735 at the age of 72. If this were so.

years old at her marriage. As the fig
ures on the stone have been found on
r;aref ul examination to be comparatively
Freshly cut, it is supposed that 192 was
an inaccurate recuttmg of an earlier in
cision. Some instances of this kind aro
most ludicrous. A tombstone in Cleve
Prior Churchyard records the death of
a person at the astounding ago of 309!
y This is supposed to be a country mason's
y way of denoting 39, that is, 30 and nine.
Several years ago the register of Shore
ditch Parish contained an entry relating
to Thomas Cam, who died in 15S8, at
the age of 207, having lived in the reigns
of twelve sovereigns. As Sir Harry
Ellis, in his " Historv of Shoreditch,"
put down the age at' 107, the register
was examined. It was found f hat it had
been altered too rather recent!-, possi
bly some wag who wished to poke fun
Bt the antiquaries.
Instances of the following kind are
known to have occurred. A young
married couple have a son whom they
name (say) John, who dies in infancy;
twenty years afterward another son re
ceives the same name, and then, in
neighbors' gossip long afterward, tho
one John becomes confused with the
other, and a man really eighty years old
fioxires in popular estimation as a cen
tenarian. Many aged persons, it is
worthy of remark, like to be considered
older than thev really are, on account
of the celebrity it gives them. A Meth
odist local preacher who had been in
turn a farmer, a soldier and a dock
laborer, was wont to claim the age of
over a hundred years;" he drew great
crowds to hear such a phenomenon
preach. He was probably sincere in his
belief concerning his age, and at his
death it was recorded at 108; but
a subsequent investi-jation showed that
he was much less instead of more than

memory concerning events in which
Jenkins was concerned.
Similarly in the case of the Countess
of Desmond; although it is evident that
this venerable member of the Irish
peerage lived to an exceptionally ad
vanced age, nevertheless there are links
wanting in the chain of testimony.
"They tell a tale," said one of the au
thorities concerning the lady's age; but
who were " they,'" and how did" they
know?" Kaieigh did not name an au
thority for his statement that sho w:ia
married so far back as the time of Ed
ward IV.; nor do we know whether
Leicester was reliable in what ho told
Temple. Several portraits are extant,
all purporting to be the Countess; but
one is now known to represent sorno
other lady, whilo tho inscription on an
other is suspected to bo comparatively
modem. The Quarterly llevicw took up
this subject some years ago, and was
able to advauce additional evidence of
her great age, but not of her reaching
the traditional 110.
One account, of quite recent date, led
Mr. Thorns to suspect a hoax. Tho
newspapers, two or three 3'cars ago,
stated that an aged gentleman met a
circle of friends at Richmond to cele
brate his 100th birthdaj-. Mr. Thorns
for some time could make nothing of
the story, either good or bad; but at
length he stated: "Information has just
reached me that the reported cente
narian banquet at the Star and Garter
has been declared to be a hoax!"
Searely a week elapses without a no
tice of the death of persons who havo
reached 100 years of age. To assert
that all these notices are false is little
short of an impertinence. Here and
there may be u'mistake, but our belief
is that the bulk of tho notices are true.
Nor is it strange they should be. It is
notorious, from medical and statistical
observation, that human life is length
ening. Old people are better careilfor
than they used to be, and there is a bet
ter knowledge in the art of preserving
health. In fact, we have come nrottv
much to tho conclusion that to die at an
age short of eighty, ninety, or even a
hundred, is very much people's own
blame. With a good constitution to
start with, and with exercising due
care, man or woman may stretch out
the span of existence to ninety, if not a
hundred. Chambers' Journal
The Iluck Hunter's Story.
"SrEAKixo of duck shooting on St.
Clair Flats," sighed an old citizen, as
he took a seat in a gun store yesterday,
"I don't think there are as many birds
up there as there was ten or fifteen
years ago. Why, sir, the channels used
to bo just black with 'em, and thevwero
so tame that you could knock
Evcrybodj- signed to think those good
old da3's and ducks could never return,
and the veteran hunter continued:
"I remember I was out one day in
April. I got in among tho bipeds, ami
how man- do you suppose I counted?"
"lhree hundred," ventured ono of
the audience after a long interval.
"Three hundred! Why, I always
killed over a thousand everv time I
went out! No, sir, I counted over six
teen thousand great big, fat, plump,
delicious-ducks, and then 1 had only
counted those on one side of tho boat!"
"How long did it take you?"
"I don't know, sir, 1 had no watch
with me. Time is nothing to a map
counting ducks. I counted aloud, and
when tho ducks were small I counted
two for one. By and by I got tired
of counting ami got read for the
"How many did you kill?"
"Well, now, I suppose I could lie
about it and say I killed nine or ten
hundred, but Irm getting too near the
grave for that. No, I didn't kill a
blasted one, and that's where the
strange part of the story comes in.
When I began to lift that gun up those
ducks knew what 1 was up to just as
well as a human being, and what did
they do? Why, sir, about two hun
dred of 'em made a sudden dive, swam
under the boat, and all raised on her
port side at once and upset her! Yes,
sir, they did, and there I was in the
North Channel, in ten feet of water,
boat upset, night coming on and I in
inv wet clothes."
" Well ?"
" Well, I climbed up on the bottom
of the boat, iloated five miles, and was
picked up by two Indians. We towed
that upset boat to an island, and hero
another curious thing comes in. Under
the boat were 264 large, nlunin ducks.
They had been caught there when she
upset, and all we had to do was to haul
'em out and rap 'em on the head."
"Why, why didn't they dive down
and get from under the boat?" asked
an amateur duck-shooter.
"Why didn't they, sir why didn't
they ? Well, sir, I might have asked
'em why they didn't, but it was late, a
cold wind had sprung up, and I didn't
feel like talking ! All I know is that I
counted over 16,000 ducks, was upset,
captured 264, and havo affidavits here
in my wallet to prove everything I have
stated. Does any man here want toseo
the documents ?"
No man did. They all looked out of
the windows and wondered if thev could

The washerwoman's art is a very
necessary, if not particularly elevated
one, and no ono with proper sympathy
iur a inrgu, laoonous anu not particu

think for a moment of attempting to
circumscribe their liberty or render
their weary task more burdensome.
However, we think it is not one of
their inherent rights to occupy the
streets with their clothes lines. To
string them along above the sidewalks,
where, burdened: with their dripping
load, they compel the passer-by to

jected by lone poles still farther Into
the street, they constantly endanger

as well as interfere with ordinary

a question often asked by housekeepers

bad treatment of indolent, incompetent
washerwomen. A solution of one and
one-half pounds of white soap and two
thirds of an ounce of spirits of ammonia,
dissolved in twelve gallons of soft water,
will impart a beautiful and lasting
whiteness to any flannels dipped in it,
no matter how yellow they may have
been previous to their immersion. Aft
er being well stirred round for a short
time, the articles should be taken out
and well washed in clean cold water.
lor washing black or navy blue linens,
tho following recipe is said to be an
excellent one. Take two potatoes,
grated into tepid soft water (after hav
ing them washed and peeled), into
which a teaspoonful of ammonia has
been put. Wash the linens in this, and
rinse them in cold blue water. Thev
will need no starch, and should be drie'd
and ironed ou the wrong side. It is
said that an infusion of hav will preserve
the natural color in buff linens, and an
infusion of bran will do the same for
brown linens and prints.

Draining Wet Land.
Tiieuk are three methods of drainino-
wet laud worthy of notice. The first
and cheapest is open draining or ditch
ing. This method carries off sunor
lluous water the most rapidly, and on
very cheap lands is the only advisable
method on any large scale.' We will,
for illustration, take a farm of low land,
such as exists iu any quantity in all the
Western Suites. The highest elevation
on a half section is only live feet. The
water line during half of the vear is
within two or three inches of the -surface.
In summer it drops down for two
or three months to six, eight, ten or
many more inches. By cutting ditches
two feet deep, around ten-acre fields,
drawing toward the lowest part of the
land, tho average water line mav bo
lowered several inches. Every "inch
that the water line on such land can be
lowered, to the depth of twelve inches,
increases its agricultural products one
sixth. Stake out tho ditch where desired,
throw out with a large plow and a
strong team as deep as possible, the
first furrow. Throw another furrow
from the first ono, leavinr onlv a core
sufficient to hold the plow "steady;
throw out this core with a spade, ten
inches deep. This is the first step to
ward a good open drain. Deepen it as
limo and circumstances permit. Tho
cost of this first operation, in land free
from stones, has not with us exceeded
two cents a rod. And bv it wo have
drained acres that before had laid under
water eight months in the year. Fences,
if needed, can now be placed on the
bank thrown up. Tho osage orange
and black thorn grow better on
thesn banks than on the undrain
ed low ground. But the ground
may be rolling with low places
surrounded by higher ground, which
keeps the water from running off. If
this high ground be many feet high,
drainage can only be effected by cutting
through the high" ground, and putting
in tiles, boards A-shaped, poles, rails o
stone, where they abound, and cover
ing. If this is not feasible and it is de
sired to drain the punch bowl, resort
must be had to vertical draining. Bore
with an auger a two-inch auger will
do, but the larger the better down
through the clay sub-soil, to the under
lying strata of water gravel; as soon
as this strata is reached the water will
sink into the hole and disappear; if the
hole is kept open. Anv cheap iron,
lead or wooden tubing will suffice. Un
derdrawing, with tile, brush, rails,
poles or stones, for the central portions
of cultivated fields, is by far the most
desirable method of carrying off the
water, as it induces the wateAo perco
late through the soil, depositing its fer
tilizing elements held in solution, and
raises "the average temperature of tho
ground from two to ten degrees, ac
cording to English experiments.
For the purpose of underdraining,
the iitch should be made as narrow as
possible, and from two to three feet
deep, and even a greater depth is de
sirable, as the deeper the ditch the
more it drains and the further may thev
be cut apart Pino brush, tips down
ward, beginning at the upper end of
the drain and deenlv covered, lest n.
good many years and effectually drain
the land, as we know. Cor. Ohio

What a Presidential Elocliou Costs.
PitOK. V. G. Sl'sinkii, of Yale Col
lege, who is quite competent to make
an acceptable calculation in the premi
ses, estimates the cost of the last Presi
dential election to have been about four
million dollars. This amount U intoned
to cover all sums spent by national and
local committees, by tho politicians and
by the candidates. A "eat in tho Hriti.sb
Hou.-o of Commons may be assumed to
coat the .successful candidate, on an
average, 2,000. Most seats cost very
much more, and sc me cost less. This
would place the cash expense of the im
pending election at $1,890,000 for tho
successful candidates alone. It does
not seem like an immoderate estimate
to rate the cash to bo spent during the
next election at approximately ten mil
lion dollars. The legitimate and actual
expenses of tho Presidential campaign
are quite large, and Prof. Sumner's es
timate has tho appearance of being a
liberal allowance. If it is legitimate to
compare these elections at all, the ad
vantage is clearly with the United States.
In both cases it is impossible to get at
the whole truth. lioston Advertiser.

THE CONSTKCCTIOX OF THE SKIM.
The skin is ei m posed of two layers, which
may besetm.ate.1 from each other by the hc
tionof a bll-ter. The thin ortion"which is
rai-ed up by the blister is called the scarf skin,
Uie cuticle, or the epidermis: thut which re
mains in connection with thebody istbesensl
the skin, the cutis, the dermn, or the true
skin. Each has Hcp.tmtc dutioi to perform.
The scarf skin Is horny aud insensible, nnd
serves aa a sheath to protect the more sensi
tive skin under it. Were the scarf skin taken
off, we could not bear to havo an thlnjr touch
us. The derma or true sin, and its glands,
oil tulies etc., arc the seat of all cutaneous
THE Oil. AMI SWKVT OI.ANIIU.
Th.it the skin mny be pliable and healthy lt
Is necessary to have it oiled evervdav; aud for
this the Creator has wisely provided by placimr
in the true skin small elands and tubes, whoso
oilicc lt is to prepare and pour out upon the
surface the proper amount of oil. On some
parts of the body they do not exist, but aro
abundant on the face, tnse, ears. head, eye
lids, etc. They produce the wax of the ears,
and on the head they open into the sheath of
the hair, and furnish it with nature's own hair
oil or pomade. When the skin is healthy, these
little vessels are always nt work, ami constant
ly responding to the demands made upon
tbem. Cons -fluently no person should bo
afraid to wah thoroughly every day with soap
and water, lest, as th 3 " Huston Medical Jour
nal" once taucht, the skin be injured by hav
ing the oil lemoved from it.

1HI flUEAT K1 ASP FCALP DISEASES.
But bad as are minor forms of skin diseases,
they sink into inslgnitlcance when compared
with the great skin and scalp diseases with
which thousands are afliicted during their

centuries based upon the mistaken theory
Ih it they are entirely due to some impurity of

directed to the important part the sweat and
fat glands play in the propagation and main

lt is no unjust reflection upon the medical
profession to say that ita efforts in the cure of

mistaken theories, poisonous remedia, and
blind adherence to methods and practices
originating in ignorance sod superstition, salt

an obstinate skin disease, called by some

my scalp, and in splieof all I
could do. with the help of tho most skillful
doctors, it slowly but surely extended, until a
year suro inis winter it covered my entire per
son in form of dry scales. For the last three
years 1 have been unable to do any labor, and
suffering intensely all the time. Everr mora
iag there could be nearly a dustpinrui of
scales taken from the sbet on ray bed, soma
of them half as lance as the envelops contain

my skin commenced crackin? open. I tried
everythinjr, almost, that could be thoug-kt of.
without any relief. The JAk of J one I started

I reached Detroit and was so low ithougbti
