John's mother knew when things
were well done, so it was with com
placent feeling that she drove, in the
well-kept spring-wagon, behind the
sleek bay, to the col lege- town. Hut as
she approached the church her heart
was beating faster, and when tho hired
boy helped her from the wagon, he felt
tho nervous tremor in her thin hand.
She was earl'. The church w:ts not
j'ct open. She had half a mind to go
to her' John's boarding-house. Had she

of her solicitude not yet dressed for

Hut bound upon gettingagood seat, she
sat on tho church steps, and waited a
weary time till the janitor came to open
the doors and to ring tho bell.
She entered tho church followed by
anolhor woman, who w:is young, and
looked very warm; as well she might,
since she had walked three miles from
J.I10 country, and wore an alpaca dress,
bright blue, with yellow satin ribbons
and white cotton mitts.
John's mother seemed, by compari
son, most respectable in her thin black
silk and white crape shawl, and those
loose brown kids. She hurried along
the aisle, ts though nervously fearful
yet of missing a good seat from which
she could hear and see .her John. She

This she did, and sat there with a

going to be slighted as that poor senior
had been, and his dear face would burn

At length the last speaker preceding
her John was standing before the au
dience. All the others had been hon
ored with floral tributes; and as this
one ended a eulogy on Thomas Jeffer
son, John's mother saw the flowers
fairly pouring toward him. Nineteen
bouquets, according to one report, he
received. Alius! she saw how it would
be. John would be tho solitary slight
ed one alone in his misery; for only
Will was to follow, and Will's mother
hail that superb bouquet for him.
Hut perhaps perhaps it might be!
John might be remembered. One per

. m . . , ' t
e October numbcff that periodical.
MrLEdLson bciri;his article with a
few words to thoscwho have expressed
tlieir ini patience at the delays in the
perfecting of the electric light. The
delays which Have occurred to defer its
general introduction are chargeable, he
says, not to any defects since discovered
in the original theory of the system in
its practical workings, but to the enor
mous mass of details which have tc be
mastered before the system can go into
I Operation on a largo scale and on a
commercial basis as a rival of the exist
ing sj'stem of lighting by gas. Impor
tant improvements h:ivea been brought
about by these delays in the direction
of economy and simplification at almost
ever)' point in the system, as well as in
the details of manufacturing the appa
ratus. The lamp, the inventor telLs us, has
been completely transformed. To quote
"The perfect lamp consists of an
oval bulb of glass about five inches in
height, pointed at one end, and with a
short stem, three-quarters of au inch
in diameter at the other. Two wires of
platinum enter the bulb through the
stem, supporting the loop or n-shaped
thread of carbon, which is about two
inches in height. The stem is her
metically scaled after the introduction
of. the carbonjoop. .At? its pointed end

through which the air in tho bulb is ex
liaustcd by means of a mercury pump
till not over one-millionth part remains.
The tube is then closed. The outer ev
tremities.of the two daliuum wires
aro "connected with the 'wire' of an
electric circuit, and at the base of tho
lamp is a screw by which the circuit is
made or broken at pleasure. When the
circuit is made the resistance offered to
the passage of the electric current by
carbon causes the loop to acquire a
high temperature and to become in
candescent, but as this takes place in a
vacuuni.the carbon is not consumed. The
"lifis" of a carbon loop through which
a current is passed continuously varies
from seven hundred and fifty to nine
hundred hours. With an intermitted
current the loop has au equal duration
of life, and as the average time an
artificial light is used is live hours per
day, it follows that one lamp will last
about six months. Kaeh lamp costs
about fifty cents, anil when one fails
another may be easily substituted for
Another important modification of
the systemintroduced since the hist
nutliori.ed account of the light was
published, is the substitution of ilynaino
muchincs for magneto-machines in the

be supplied to the several mstrjets of, a

plicity and economy. To the qucstiqu
which is so often asked, when will a
public demonstration of tho working of
the system bo made, the inventor re
plies: "That such a demonstration will'in

within two months from this date. The
time which h:is elapsed since tho pre
liminary demonstration of last-January

. Mr. PMison goes into the particulars
concerning his lamp, giving a state
ment of its advantages over gas in the
matter of simplicity in the management
and economy.' He repeats what has al
ready been stated in the Herald con
cerning the plans for lighting the cities.
Estimates arc being made of the exact
cost of " plant" in the different cities;
contracts arc bein negotiated for tho

English Ignorance of America.
I remember, says a writer in the
Syracuse (N. Y.) Herald, having a
young Englishiii'iu fora near neighbor
.some years ago. who ued to make mu
a sort of confidential counselor. He
was an agreeable, pretty intelligent
fellow, and too well bred to utter all his
thoughts aloud, but away down in the
bottom of his heart I always fancied he
cherished a complacent notion that he
had somehow conferred a favor upon
the United States by coming to live in'
them. One day he entered my office
displaying a new silk umbrella. "How
much do you suppose that cost me?"
he inquired, as he turned it around
and up and down to enable me to in
spect it thoroughly. "About eight
dollars, 1 should say." I answered,
after examining it "Eight dollars?"
he repeated; "that is a one pound
twelve, isn't it? Well, you came not
far from it I paid in "all just two
guineas for it" "Then, my friend, I
am sorry to say you were cheated.
How came you to give so much?" " It
cost one pound two at Martin's in the
Arcade, and as I knew your customs
duties here were so outrageous, I paid
a purser on one of the ocean steamers
a sovereign to get it in to me." "Hut
why, for Heaven's sake, did you send
abroad for it?" "Oh. I knew that in
this country I should have lo pay Mar
tin's prL'cand the duty, and the im
porter's profit, whereas, by importing
directly myself, 1 had oi'ily the lirst
cost and a bonus pay." "Hut would
not an American umbrella have kept
the rain off your head equally well?"
"An American umbrella! 1 did not
suspect that you made them in this
country." On another occasion my
English friend sent home for a set of
Dickens' works, and was amazed to
learn that ho could have bought tho
same books hero for half the price in
an edition authori.ed by the great nov
elist himself. Onco more he met
with a like startling bit of news in re
gard to barometers, and again when he
took infinite pains to smuggle through
the custom house a London silk hat.
I lost sight of the young gentleman a
good while ago, but I hope, if our
patli3 ever cross again, that 1 shall find
him wiser for tho lessons of observa
tion ho has learned in the inteival.
Snipo Hunting in Nevada.
O.ve of the most interesting snipe
hunts of the sison took place at Wads
worth one night last week. Themethod
of sacking snipe had been explained to
a young man who had recently arrived
there, and he was eager logo on a hunt
So, fully instructed, he took up his
position on the top of a big roek on a
hill overlooking the town. He carried
with him a red signal lantern and a big
dinner-bell. From dark until ten
o'clock, for more than two hours, that
young man stood on the rock waving
his lantern and holding the sack.
Sometimes he would ring the dinner
bell with all his. might, and then he
would shout like one possessed. He
kept up an incessant din, never doubt
ing for a moment that the snipo wero
coming in. The boys Irid done their
work well, and he was fully impressed
with the necessity of patience and per
severance to secure a good bag of birds.
While this performance was going on
the people of Wadsworth had all turned
out to watch it. There was the young
hunter high up on the bill, in the red
glare of his lantern, his yells aud shouts
ringing in their ears. It was too good.
Tho "boys" just rolled over aud over
on the flat, delirious with joy, kicking
up theirheels in an ecstasy of delight.
They laughed so much that thoy could
laugh no more. But still, when the red
light would bo swung and the shouts of
"Sni-pc,sni-pc,sni-pc. 0,SIli-pc,,' would
descend from the hill, they would ex
perience fresh convulsions, and double
up like youngsters stricken with colic
after a fe 1st of green apple. Suddenly
the lantern was extinguished and all
was silent on tho hill. He had "tumbled"

The system of conducting the Brit
ish Government by a Ministry, chosen
from the stfohgfcst party in the House"
of Commons dates' from the time of
William III. in IG39. Previous to that
all the Ministers had been independent
of each other and responsible to -the
sovereign alone, who might dismiss one
great offices- of -State and retain the
rest The idea of a homogeneous Min
istry was first carried out by Robert,
Earl of Sunderland, who successively
held office under Charles LL James JU.
and William of Orange.

Pekiiais there U no possession in
life like that of a ulrter a ort of a
ond self, to whom one may say one's

Tu'if unsaid from whom one may bear
homely trutiili with the certainty .that
thev aro not .dictated by petty pltc or
jcafomy; frm whom one may rectivo
compliments, aisuiod thil they are the
sincere expression of opinion, and not
the thoughtless adulation of thoo bo
expect to be repaid in tho same cote
with interest A pcrmn destitute of
sisters is almost as much alone in tho
world a the Wandering Jew; her
father and mother may be tninleLs of
their kind, but they are not her con
temporaries, so to .speak not of her
generation; she has not played doll
with them. They may adopt a cou.in
or a friend to Sill 'the vacant niche, but
no friendship or cousinlv feeling is am
ple enough. Our friends and cousins
are apt to talk us over w ith each other;
they are not always charitable to our
little fault; our short-comings are not
pieced out by any -kill of theirs; wo
aro at the mercy" of their moods and
tenses, and our idiosyncrasies are at
tho mcpy of their setipe of humor; but
a sister is a bulwark, between us and
"the arrows of outrageous fortune."
She makes our troubles her own;
whatever hurt ils wounds her. she
abets and encourages u extenuates
our faults, publishes our virtues. In
every family of sisters there is one
brighter than tho rest, ho gilds the
ignorances and lack of brilliancy of the
others; one prettier than tho rest for
whose sake tho others receive atten
tion; one stronger than the rest, upon
whom they lean, and thus they boLsler
and .shield each other. Tho sist-rle.s.s
girl never tastes the flavor of sisterly
talks "after the ball." or over the
work-table. In affairs of the toilette
she has few to aid her. and ofteu pre
sents tho appeal ance of dowdmesi for
lack of a little genuine advice- A sis
ter desires nothing so much as that 0110
should look one's best; a friend, alas!
is sometimes better pleased when one
appears at one's worst. Moreover, sis
ters aro rarely jealous; praise of one
reflects upon "the other; blame of one
is only a backhanded insult to the
other, since they hold everything in
common, and Kuc does not care to bo
flattered at the expense of Lily. The
beauty would like to share her lovli
ness with tho plainest; does not enjoy
shining, unless her sister strikes
sparks, whom it is no pleasure to rival
in any respect To bo sure, there is
the exceptional sister who is more liko
a changeling than anything else, who
betrays confidence, estranges lovers,
demands tho lion's share, of everything
but work, and shirks care; but she is
more rare, thank Heaven, than a four
leaved clover, and we are more likely
to find her in novels than in real life.

At the end of a series of articles on
tho centenarians of various countries,
M. Legoyt sums up the conditions
favorable to the attainment of great
age. Among these temperance occu
pies tho first rank, all the facts that
have been collected testifying to the
agency of this. Some years ago. the
French Ministry addressed a circular to
all the Prefects desiring them to insti
tute inquiries as to the favorable condi
tion, and the replies almost unanimous
ly indicated great sobriety, regular
labor, (usually"" in the open air) daily
exercise short of fatigue, early hours, a
comparatively well-to-do life, calmness
of mind in meeting troubles, moderate
intellectual power and a family life.
The happy influence of marriage on tho
duration of life is universally admitted,
and re-marriage docs not seem to be
unfavorable. The Prefects also indi
cated heredity as a frequent cause, and
the influence of climate is also admit
ted. This, however, is sepcrable with
difficulty from other causes which may
be operating -simultaneously; but if all
things were otherwise equal, it would
seem that southern arc lcs3 favorable
to longevity than northern climates. A
country life is doubtless favorable to
longevity; but even in large cities, and
especially iu London, a certain number
of centenarians occur, and that even in
unhealthy quarters; and although a
certain a'mount of well-being, when
united to sobriety, and not neutralized
by political or "commercial agitation,
exerts a favorable influence, yet, as the
English and French returns show, cen
tenarians are met with in the lower
classes, and even in poor-houses. Ag
ricultural employment is favorable to
the duration of life: and the great ma
jority, and almost the totality, of cen
tenarians have followed this occupa
A Curious Stone.
An Oxford Museum contains a strango
stone- It is composed, of carbonate of
lime, and was taken from a colliery
drain. When the miners were at work
the water running through the drain
left a deposit .colored black by coal
dust but whea they were not at work
the water ran down clear and left a
white deposit In time these black and
white lavers made a stone of considera
ble thickness, which constitutes quite a
calendar. Each day of work has left a
black streak, and is followed by a white
streak (or the night Wide white
streaks mark the Sundays and other
holidays, from which circumstance this
