THE HUSTON' LADIES' DEPOSIT.
The trick, it is lobe noted, is not a
liew one, but has been played siiece-s-
fullv at lexst once witlrn the p isttwen-
ty-livcyears in each of the countries of
France, Italy and llavaria. lis litest
Flupopcan lorm, the "Dachau 15ank" of
an ex-actress. Allele Sjiitzeder, which was
-operated in Munich trom 18GD to 1872,
-and by which the liavarians were cheat
ed out ot millions of dollars, is iiilriu
sically the most interesting of these
swindles, and is specially so to us .be
cause it had so many point? in common
j. with the Ladies' Deposit of Host on. No
one. indeed, who hasstudicd the stones
' of the two together can doubt that in
.some way or other, directly or indirect
ly, Fraulein Spitzedcr's plan was
the inspiration and model of
Mrs. Howe's, l'oth opened banks
of deposit, promised preposterous
"returns of interest, and success
fully invited loans of money from
thepublic. Neither had any pecuniary
capital, or odercd any security, the sole
and sufficient reliance of v h being
npon her own impudence and the com
Ibjned cupidity and credulity of her cus
pbmcrs. Each made ,friends by plav
ing the Ladv liountiful upon occasion,
had a mixed party of gulls and knaves
committed to her cause, drew herself
idut ot poverty and into luxurious com
ffbrt by means of her bank, ended her
career in prison, and left assets enough
behind her to pay her creditors a divi
dend of about live per cent- The ab
solute essentials to long-continued suc
cess, as each, swindler knew, were the
prompt payment of the ridiculous rate
of stipulated interest, and the prompt
punishment in a depositor of any want
.. of faith by a return of her principal and
a haught' refusal ever to resume busi
ness relations with her. This latter
operation, a vcrjT shrewd kind of moral
"hulldoz ng," Mrs Howe and her assist
? ants used to perform magnificently and
with great eflecL Each counted with
certainty upon a very rare withdrawal
of principal, so long as. the cxtraordi
nary interest was paid and the custom
er s confidence was unshaken. Many
persons and the writer admits to be
ing one at-lirst found a little diilicultv
iu understanding how such a concern
could pay twentv-four per cent, a mouth
quarterly in advance, even for a couple
gbf 'years, without investing its funds or
receiving help lrom without. lint the
explanation is really quite: simple: when
once the popular faith begins to be es
tablished in such a b.iuk, the principal
flows in for some time iu :iu evor-111-creasing
stream, and lor quite a longpb
riod there is more than enough mone
'alwa3s on hind to meet the current de
,mand for interest, and leave the oper
ator a handsome margin lor sitks, jew
folry, hot-house llowers, and all oilier
proper living expenses all hough, ol
course, at every moment the concern is
in laet utterly insolvent. In the case
of the Ladies' Deposit some of the fig
ures already given illustrate this well
euou;h; tho number of depositors in
1880 was live times as great as in 1871).
and the receipts from the first quarter
' of tho former year were therefore far
more than enough by themselves to
meet all the demands for interest then
accruing on deposits of 187l, to tak--care
of ihe us.ial small withdrawal of
principal, and to give Mrs. Howe and
her friends everything the' needed lor
their comfort. To keep such a concern
alive there must be a like increase ot
deposits upon a geometric ratio all the
time, and Mich a rate of advance cann it
possibly be mainta ned for many years.
SSjfThe lonier the thing lasts the wide'r is
. tho circle of its linal disaster and inius-
v tice,and the duty, thereforcof every hon-
est man, whatever the dutj' of houe?t
J woman may be, is to destroy such an
j? enterprise as soon as it is unearthed.
Mrs. Howe quite surpassed.Miss Spitz
eder in scrupulous obed.encc to the
spirit of "their common scheme. The
flatter sometimes though rarely, to be
sure ni do investments of herdepos-
ited funds; the former never did such a
thing, excepting once, when she lent a
cfew hundied dollars to a furniture
dealer: and her Ladies' Deposit had not
a single cent of "mcoMe," in the
banker's sense of the word. Mrs.
Howe, in fact, cirried on her business
4 in all its branches with appropriately
rfSpart in simplicity. She to k her do-
3positors' money; kept it in the drawers
l?of a chiffbniere in the business parlor by
dny, as Mrs. Gould has often .said.
"parried it off in baskets at night, and
pnt it somewhere probably under
her bed for safo- keeping; paid
"out interest and principal from it
when there were calls for such
disbursements: bought her own house
and land aud furniture and fixtures with
it; and always treated it entirely as her
own which, indeed, in an important
sense, it was. For this sort of -banking
none of tho frippery of modern mascu-
, line book-keeninsr was neeced. and none
jhvasused; the accounts of a Fiji Island
tlish-dealer could not have been kept
more simply than those of Mrs. Howe,
the Boston "financial agent," and Miss
'Crandall, who testified in court thatshe
fdid-not know the difference between a
day-book and a ledger, was the very
woman to serve as her chief clerk. In
' audacity the German operator some
what surpassed her American imitator,
"but in cunning the latter absolutely ex
celled. Mrs. Howe or whoever ehtbor-
ed the orig'nal conception of her
t recognized the decided supen-

The public has learned to regard with

or rather of 'the practicil applicatii.n of
this a cnt to new uses. Mr. Klison

and other men of je"cuee long ago be
gan to promise us th.it in a ver. short
time our houses would be lighte I w.th
electricity more brilliantly an 1 cheaply
than tliuv ever had been in anv way;
but the panic among-th-; ;asoom an es
hoon pas-c I away and sto.de again rules
a' high rate. It is no du'ibt true,
however, that our hopes in this respect
have been deferred through unlookcd-
1 for obstacles lo the practical anpici-
' tion of the principle and not throu ;h
any mistake about the principle itself,
I'tioho pla:es are actually lighted by
electricity; and private places are not
yet so lighte I only beeaiii of the diffi
culty ot furn -siting the i'lumiiat m

event-, the experiments undo upon 111 ;
eleetric ndhoid near IScrlm tee:n lo
have solved "lie problem.
I Sut till more wonderful resu'ls in this
branch of practical science are reported.
The world was astoui-dicd whe.i Pi of.
Morse started an clcetri.: spark upon a
wire jouriPiV and compelled it lo recml
a m sage at its journey's en I. Ili'h
erto the varied a'pl!ct!:on of the force
has been a mere expansion of this con
ception, at leait in this re-.pect. that
the force has worked upon an unbroken
line tif operation-'. Its communications,
so to speak, have not been cut. So lar
as this the force which carries a mes-s.-te
from New York to Albany, the
force which runs through the caole.- be
neath the Atlantic, and the force which
by and by will lizht a whole city work
in the same uninterrupted way. But it
seems to be quite another thing lo pad;
electricity iu your trunk at New York,
check it to Albany, and there make it
to do, with uiiimpa re I nl icrtv ami ef
fect, the work which it would do here.
Yet this is the startling result which our
esteemed contemporary, the Lond'iii
VVw. has been instrumental in limit
ing about. Other e-ti'died contempo
raries have made them-elvcs famous by
getlin early news of remote military
movements news sometimes of which
the toiniuandimr Generals conccrne I iu
the events were themselves ignorant;
in piercing the heart of Africa, .anil in
making renewed search for the pole.
But if all which is -ug.ic-.tcd grows out
uf a recent journey of a correspondent
of the Time from Pari- to Glasgow, that
new-paper has celebrated it-elf more
suece-sfiilly than any of the others.
On the '.dli of May M Fan re. of Paris,
charged four batteries with ohvtr city,
inclose I them in a wooden box measur
ing a cubic foot and handed the bo to
the ''inns' correspondent, who seventy
two hours la'cr delivered it to Sir Will
iam Thompson, of the Glasgow I'ni-ver-ity.
The remain ler of the story is
told by Prof. Thompson in a letter to
the Tt'iics: When the batteries were
tiken from tlr box it was found that
thev had lo-t little or nothing of their
stored electric energy. By measure
ment and by other tests the force was
shown folic when it arrived in Glasgow
substantially what it was when it quit
ted Paris. Th s, we repeat, seems to
be something very different from send
ing electricity along a wire, whet'ier to
write a message or to light a lamp. In
these cases the working of the for.a is
unbroken between the place where it is
evolved and the place where'it is linallv
applied: but in the latest cae there is
no such connection. In other wards,
the storage of electric energy, if it is
in accomplished fact, may be pro luet
ive of the largest results. When the
correspondent handed the box to the
professor provided, of course, all that
is suggested comes to p:iss he may b.
said to have symbolized a coining revo
lution in many methods of modern life.
With stored energy evcrv househo'der
may keep his electric light supply in
his own cellar; with stored cnergyshios
mav plow their .way across the ocean
without the aid of steam or the fuel
which is cmsumed in creating it; with
stored energy railroads mav be oper
ated free from smoke and cinders; wirh
stored energy manufactures may be
conducted on a large or small so le
safely anil inexpensively: with stored
energy coal may be largely dispensed
with, aud the question. What will be
come of England when her mines are
exhausted? will be of no consequence."
Tho 7m.f itself looks forward to this
solution of the problem with pleading
anticipations and hints at a London
smokeless ami clean, uncontamin ited
either b the solid or by the gascou
products of combustion." It is unsel
fish enough further to show how Amer
ica mav turn stored energy to the mot
pro ti table account. Looking upon the
Falls of Niagara as " the natural and
proper chief motor of the continent."
it says that we may 3-et sec stored elec
tricity, evolved by this enormous
water-power, carried by electric rail
roads to all parts of this country foi
use for all the purposes tor which coal
is now directly or indirectly used. In
that event wc" may have some to spare
for shipment to Europe.
All of these tjrngs may hanpen, but
conservative people wilf bear in mind

One of thegreatest vegetable phe

kind as the bread-fruit, appears to be
the Polo dc Vaca. or cow-tree. This
plant produces a glutinous liquid like
an animal. It frequently grows upon
the barren sides of a rock, and has dry,
coriaceous leaves. For sevei-al months
in the vcar its foliage is not moistcued

Opium-smoking is a sensuous pleas
ure and depends tor its full enjoyment
upon leisure and society. The majori
ty of the better class of Chinese iu San
Francisco smoke opium, but not iu ex
cess. They wid lounge on their 1 ttle
bunks, enjov twelve or fifteen pipes in
the course of an afternoon or evening,
chat, -nioxe tobacco, aud drink tea 01
rice brandy. Few except the continu
ed opium-smokers use the drag to pro
duce insensibility or the opium sleep.
The pr.mary ellcct of opium is that of
good tobacco, increased tenfold. It
soothes aud tranquillizes the nerves and
laps the smoker in a delicious state of
Sybaritic ease and .voluptuous enjoy
ment, it induces a species of day
dream, but its elle'ts in this regard
have been greatly exaggerated. It se.
dom prod. ices the drunken stupor
which follows undue indulgence in
liquor. The European who contracts
the habit of opium-smoking usually
craves an inordinate amount of the
drug. A man whom 1 know smokes
regularly every day six bits' (75 cents)
worth of opium, or about iitty pipes.
He is a walking skeleton, and, when not
under the inlluence of the narcotic, he
trembles like a paralytic. His cheeks
are sunken, the bones seem starting
through the pallid skin, an 1 the whole
man is a liv.ng wro d: strength, energy,
will, iiKuiho.nl, al clean gone. He lives
o ily for h s daily indulgence in the
drug, aud his bodv could dispense with
it no more than h s lungs could per
lonn their lutn-tions without air. He
is a walking barometer: sensitive to the
slightest change in temperature and
racked bv neuralgic pains when exposed
to cohl. Fatally insidious, too, is this
opium habit. It saps the moral strength
and enfeebles tho will: then, shorn of
these two aides, it takes a man of ex
ceptional strongth of character to free
himself from its ihralldom.
Tne poorer classes of Chinese in Cal
iforniaand these comprise nine-tenths
of the who!c number use opium as a
solace to their hard life. It is one of
the few pleasures they al'ow them
selves in a s'avish jstriigjzle to Jay up
money. No st ire. wash-house, manu
factory or restaurant is without its
opium " lay-out." The habit of opium
smoking is universal, as common as the
use of tobacco among American men.
A very intelligent Chinese merchant,
who speaks excellent English, in a re
cent conversation with me on the evils
of opium smoking, sa'd: "It is the
curse of our people, and is far worse in
its effects than your whisky-drinking.
A man who drinks liquor gets some
strength from the stimulant, though
this may last only a few inn u' es. He
may even live to old ago and never go
to bed sober. But the effects of op:um
are far different. It takes away
strength, it never gives any. It .weak
ens alnan, thins his blood and steals all
his energy. It makes him feel tho cold,
makes him what you call invalid no
good tor any real work. He may work
at a trade, but he cannot carry on any
business which requires thought or cal
culation. For myself. I smoke a few
pipes frequently with friends. It is so
cial and pica-ant, but I always take ihe
greatest care not to smoke twice in suc
cession at the same hour. When I feel
the longing to smoke, which always at
tacks you just twenty-four hours after
3-our last indulgence, 1 never give wav
The bane of opium-smoking in Cali
fornia is seen in the younger genera
tion. California children are very pre
cocious; 'thev seem to have an exagger
ated desire to indulge iu everything
which is forbidden. Every Chinese
wash-house throughout the State is the
center of evil. Young boys learn there
to smoke op um and contract the habit
which ruins them body and.soul. The
Chinese receive boys "with great favor,
and are always ready to initiate them
into any vice! In the cities the evil is
worse, as the oppo-turiities for its grat
ification are met on every s'de. There
are many squalid opium "dens" in the
Chinese quarters, and these have their
regular white customers. Tho police
make frequent raids upon them, but the
payment of twentv dollars line releases
the proprietor. Now it is customary
for the smoker to deposit this amount
before beginning his, indulgence, in
order lo insure the re'ease of the patron
in case of arrest: The vice is roost
prevalent among the hoodlums, of this
city and the women of the town, out
police oJIiccra and detectives. whos
word nny be relied upon, declare that
the practice is spreading with groat
rapidity, and that the law wi 1 soon
have to be invoked o check it by heavy
lines or other pena'tiii. The new
treaty will have no sei&ible e'lect upou
the importation 01 opium into this coun
try, as the duties are low in Ilritislt
Columbia and Meico. and the work of
smuggling it over the border will not
be ditliciiit. As a Chinese merchant
said a few days ago in speaking of the
drug: 'ThcChmcjtt will get it if it's
on top of the earth. You nrsht as well
try to top your Nation lrdn atiiuktng
cigars or dnuking liquor." Ovr. S. i.

Even in Iiouswork, the brain may
save the body a great deal of labor. A
woman who plans her work beforehand
always accomplishes a great deal more
.than" her less methodical sisler. and
with less fatigue to herself. Before
she rises in the morning her bieak'ast
is thoroughly planned, and the order
in which the ditlerent details are to be
carried out is quite decided upon. It
makes ail work easier to have it thus
planned beforehand, and many a weary
woman might secure many bright
half-hours to herself every w cek if she
wou.d but inaugurate the system. It is
like packing a "trunk you know-how
easy it is for one skilled in the business
to put in a third nnre than one who
piles things in "just as it happens."
It is always such a pleasure to look
back on a'well pa-ked day and see just.
what has been done. People wnose
days are full of idleness and ease do not
have the monopoly of happiness bj any
means. Those who have nothing to do
except make themselves com'ortab'e
are generally peevish and discontented.

There are women to-day in San

empty mansions of our new millionaires
and arrange the appointments of room
after room of the entire house, with an
artistic sense and individuality of taste
which would put to the blush the first
upholsterer of the city. The day is
not far distant when this will become a.
distinct calling for women. The origi

fiiu above diet .showed that .10(1 grammes '
of the solid matter were digested. 1 1 i

starch were digeste I. and '21.- were
not; but of the nitrogenous matter,
which is supposed to be the most valua
ble of all to the animal economy, only
.'5.7 grammes had been a-sitnilated. j
leaving 11.4 as wa-te. less than half tltei
ouanlity present being utilized. The !
was coiiductu I
upon the same subject with
animal food. Ho was given
a diet consisting of oJO grammes of lean
beef, 125 of pure fat. ami I) of tlonr.
The result was that 2JLS grammes ol
the solid matt r were digested, leaving
o.J.G undigested; but of the nitrogenous
matter 7: grammes were assimilated,
leavingonlylC.H, and of the fat only
4.11 grammes rema ned undigested.
Some other experiments have been
111 ide by Buhner, who took more than
two pounds of moat daily, and found
that all but -.' per cent." of the albu
mi o is matter was a-s'inilated. and
that when twenty-one eggs were taken
daily only 2 l per cent, ot the albumen
remamed undigested The experiments '

others, all of which tend to establish j
the very superior nutritive value of

doubt that the general health, physical
constitution and the circumstances of
life have great inlluence in determining
the kind o: fo id mot suitable for the
