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 i 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- sensibilitv and mquist- thc average Bostoni- erage Bavarian, tions were conuucieu, with an almost ex- lir of reserve and manajrement jagic upon tducat- knt to fully earned out in the request, j delicately but firmly niado in almo3t ev ery case, that the customer uiyijnt rrrtsoti 'ihnnt ttin I-mlie' Derm .lKTr' indued, she hal a particular fcmalo , friend, who was execssive'y worthy and greatly in need, and who happened to ) have two huiiiircu dollars or more, sucn a friend might. a.s a favir, be very quietly informed of tlio privileges of the establishment; but there was to bo no baDbliug into the world's rude ear about these sa"rcd mvsteriesof Kictisis.

The public has learned to regard with caution the recent aim Miieements of tin lfii'tro iifiiliiltt i if iTi rtr fririf 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 agent economically.

At 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.

Even ing FosL One of thegreatest vegetable phe nomena, thougit not so useful to man 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 bv a 'single drop of rain, and its branches appear entirely dried up. But uoon piercing the trunk, particularly at the rising of the sun, there flows a sweet and nourishing yellow ju'ee. hav-ino- a balsamic perrume, with many of the qualities of milk. In the morning the natives of the country, in which this vegetable fountain grows, visit it with jowls, in which they carry nonie 11s ilk for their children.

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 to it." 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. 'lixbunt. The Suaimcr Cre of .NeiTy-Sci IVoIt Trees. In these daya almost every en'erpris Ing farmer or owner of a pleas uit humu tinds that each spring, m order to kesp up with the twins and the continuous wants of faiu-iy and market, he needs to plant out more or lu-a fruit trees or vines.

On the hill-side under the cork-trees we see a child tending her Hock, at.d spinning with distaff" and spindle. Such a sight is very common; lilUe girs have much to do with the domestic animals; they run fearlessly between the iong horns of ihe grer.t tawny oen, anil guide them 111 she way they should go w.th a shower ot blows on their I0114 aiiller'ng lorehtads and inu..Ies. They milk the goats and hen! the swine, and grow lithe and strt n; of limb' and nut brown of 'a e iu the warm sun. The hculsnien and shej herde.-ses beguile ilieir lonely watch with the peculiar un tiphonal songs of the country, which often dispkiv remarkable w. tin repartee 011 the p irt of the iinpiovi-atores, as well as a ready talent. for rhymuig. These songs are composed as well in Spain as in Portugal. One shepherd challenges another to a touVnameut m verse, and begins by singing a stan.a which is to serve as a kev-note for the whole production, as wed in ihe kind of mcasuie to be u-ed as iu tune. In one of the-e Lrical ballads, which, so far as I know, h.is never crept into print, a man begins a song halt in hauler, half in earnest: It 1 loiter to love n floy than to lovo a woman. For for a piece of jfold a woman will leave you to t'rief. Hut tlio uUVcii n of u iloj; U ein!li." A woman, who has had jomo ex perienco of the improvidence as well as of'the vora -ity ot mankind, replies, in ready caricature of the other: It 5-1 bolter to feed a !o than P Iced a man.

L. IP. Chunijtnei, m Harper's Mii'ji zinc. . Planning Work. 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. Work has "manifold ad van' ages; an I the woman who has led a bu-y life cau uot be content to rest in idleuess. There are women to-day in San Francisco (savs the Chronic e of that citv) subsist. ng on scanty crusts in blind alleys, who could step into the 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 nality of conception and design mani fested by women wherever their artistic powers are allowed a chance for devel opment will lead to many new paths for industrious womanhood." - - w ' The Board of Trustees of the New York Business Men's Moderation Soci ety have resolved to abandon the pledge aud principle of total- abstinence, and substitute in place of it a principle pledging themselves not to use as a beverage anv intoxicating drinks stronger than beer, ale or light wines, and those only in moderation, and pledges the society to exert its iniu ence in every honorable way possible against the use ot whisky, rum, brandy and other spirituous liquors as a bever age.

Some rcceiitstiid.es upon the nutritive value of foo I have led to results which j do not fullv supi ort the views of those sanitary reformers who advocate a vege- j t.'ilili. diet. :is elii-nn'T. les- stiiniilat ng and ou.te as nourishing to tho system ' as auimii too.i. n naievei mav ne true of tropical climates, it certainly seems j that in the temperate one a mixed diet is lar preierab.e Jo make tins c ear the results of two experiments may be quote. 1. as follows: A man was given l.DOO grammes of potatoes. -07 ot len tils anu iu 01 ureal. 1 ue average re-1 silt of six days' experimenting with fiiu above diet .showed that .10(1 grammes ' of the solid matter were digested. 1 1 i rein lining intact; 'J.G.H grammes ol 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 ! othor ovnennient 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 ' here cited aie sole'ted from a host of! others, all of which tend to establish j the very superior nutritive value of animal "food. Hovcver, there i3 no 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 individual. The main fact established b.- the above experiments is that the J nitrogenous constituents, which are the , mot nutritive elements o; ioou, are j more readily obtaine I from animal than j --' . . t .' trom vegetable iood. as in the nrsi in stance cited, when 3S.7 grammes were1 ass.m'dated from a vegeta do d et. i against 7.5 grammes from lean beef At , the same ti ne it may be said that the : system docs not always require so much . nitrogenous matter.
