rich harvest of antiquities has resulted
from the work. The explorations car
ried out during eighteen months by Mr.
norm u 7x1 Jtasam, though atiordlri
such grnnde trouvaille as 'he b
:atcs from Ballawat, have, nevcrthe
lcsi, been rich in discoveries which will
be welcomed by all students of history
and philology. The recovery of the
library of terra-co'ta tablets from the
palace of Seumcherib an I Asurbnni
pal has restored to us a vast rnas of lit
erature, and supplied long-lost chap
ters in the history, mythology and
science of the wor'd. It has also
proved to us that, vaiuiblc as the-e
records are, we have in them but sec
ond and third editions of works first
compiled by the scribes in the library
cities of .Babylonia. The discovery of
fragments led Assyriologists to hope
that tho explorer would be able to re
cover 'from the ruins of the cities of
Chaldea the older versions of the As
syrian texts, and the expedition of 1830
-'81, which Mr. Kassam has just con
cluded, has feo far met their wishes in '
that from the ruins of the temples and
palaces of Babylon, I'orsippn, Sippra
and Cutha he brings record and copies
of religioustcxts, bomeof uhich will", no
doubt, furnish the required Cha!dcan
From the earliest days of Me3opota-

has been applied to the ruins of Baby-
ion.- estrange as it may seem, although
for more than three centuries the ruins
have been known and visited, and for
centuries tlie Arab brick merchants
have been digging amid its ruins for
bricks, it is only within the last few
j-ears that records of importance have
been recovered. With the exception of
thousands of bricks bearing the names
and titles of Nebuclndnezzar, and cyl-,
inders inscribed with the records of
temples and palaces built orrcstorcd by
tho builder-king and his successors, no
record of historical or scientific impor
tance has been recovered from noiid tho
ruins. But the year 1871 began a new
era in Bab) Ionian explorations, for from
that time on there has been a continu
ous flow of inscriptions and records
from the treasure-house of the citV; and
wc now know much more of the'popu
lar life of Babylon and its people than
after j'cars of stud3 we have been ab!o
to ascertain rcgardinirlTiiicveli from the
monuments and records. The tablets
found by the- Arabs in 187-1-70 were
jnirehascd by the late George Smith for
itlieTrustcesof the British Museum, and
the subsequent finds made by Mr. Kas
sam have added some hundreds to this
Jjfaiich of the collect'on, so that of this
""class of tablets there are now more
than :,000 examples in the British
Museum. Thc-o tablets show that for
along period, probably several centur
ies, the family of the Belli Egibi were
-tho loading commercial linn of Baby
Jon, and to tliem was collided all the
business of the Babylonian Ministry of
Finance. The building whose ruins'are
marked by the mound of Jumjuma was
the-chancelleric of the firm, and from
its ruins come the records of every
class of monetary transactions. Tho
documents, being all must carefully
dated and compiled, arc of great value
lb the clirouologiat and historian;
. while to the student of Babylonian civ
.ilization thev are of tho highest ira-
Dortance. From, the tax tcccipts we
"learn how the revenue was raised by
"duties levied on land, on crops of dates
". and corn, on cattle, by imposts for the
"use of the irrigation cauals ami the use
of, the public n-ads. It is a'most im
possible to eslimato too h'ghly the ira-
portancc of such a scries ot documents
. as f hesc, deil ng with e ery phase of
social life, and coming to us from a city
frotn within whose walls were gathered
representatives of every " nation, peo--!ple
The inscriptions which Mr. Rassam
has recovered are not confined to docu
ments of this class only. It was long
' feared by Assvriologisfs that Babvlo-
nian history was irretrievably lot, as
no historical records were recovered;
but from the ruins of tho palaces of the
Kings of Babtlon Mr. Kassam has
brought fragments of historical de
scriptions of Nebuchadnezzar, a valua-
"'blcvrccv? of the history of the last days
of the Babylonian Empire, ex.endiug
"from the seventh year of Nabonidus to
'the fall of the city before the hosts of
Cyrus, a roal xeeord of the Persian
conqueror, and, lastly, an inscribed
record of the last great victor who eu-
tered -Babylon, Alexander of Macedou.
The scarcity of stone in Babylonia, and
the extensive use of bricks, rendered
tho, ruins of Babylonian palaces not
fniitful fields for the explorer in search
of arcliitectural remains. In the ruins
of the lvasr or "palace'" mound, Mr.
Ilassam has found chambers and corri
dors which formed part of the rojal
residence of the Kings of Babylon.
The tise of plaster and painted bricks
as decoration in those chambers af
fords strong support to the statements
of the Greek writers as to the mode of
decoratiBg the royal residences of
Babylcn. On tho extreme north of the
ruins of Babylon, and partly without
tbe enceinte, is the large mound called
Jjiythe natives the Babel mound. Exca
vations made here have brought to
light the remains of extensive hydraulic
feorks, wells and conduits lined with
"Stones, sad evidently connected with
the Euphrates. The discovery of these
'remains would seem to indicate that
here had stood the hanging gardens,
"built bv tho Babvlon'an lvinsr for his
Median Queen, and the supposition re
ceiyes additional support from the re
covery of a small inscribed tablet,
ivhich clearly proves the fondness of
-the Babylonian Kings ,for horticulture.

Abu Hubba are very extensive, cover
ing an area over two miles in cir. um
ferenec, and the position of the walk
and citadel are clearly marked by
mounds an 1 embankments of debris.
Like most Babylonian ediiice3, J.ht I
buildings at Abu Hubba are built with-
the anir.es to the cardinal points.
The citadel occupies the southern
portion of the nceinte, and its higlio-t .
point was on the southwest face, which
was once on the banks of a broad cana. "
or a branch of the Euphrates, the bed "
of win di is now represented bv
the dry channel of the Kuthwaniyeh
Canal. In the interior of the uJilice
an interesting pair of rooms were j
discovered and cleared of, debris
by the fortunate explorer, and it
is from records found in these cham
bers that we have been able to ascertain
the name of the city and the nature of
the cdilice whose, ruins arc bur.ed be
neath the mounds of Abu Hubba. In
excavatinga trench following a wall in
the central portion of the mound, a
: doorway was found leading into n large
j gallery or chamber one hundred teet in
length and about thirtv-tive feet in
wall of this chamber a door was found
leading into a smaller room, which, from
its construction ami position, Mr. Kas
sam considered to be the record cham
ber of the edifice. In his explorations
at Ballawat, which we fully described
some time s:nce, Mr. Kassam found the
memorial records of the builder of the
great temple of the Assyrian war god
placed in a stone cist and buried near
the altar. The scarcity of stone in
Babylonia caused tho builders of the
temples at Abu Hubba to inclose .the
records in a cist undo of terra cotta.
and to bury this beneath the lloorof the '
chamber. "The shaft sunk by the ov- (
cavators employed by Mr. Kassam j
brought the-e precious record o light, 1
and from them wc arc able lo ascertain '
the name of the city and tempi j whose I
ruins have been discovered. Th j first ,

tion records brings our speculative
thoughts to a focus and center our

And now we recover, twenty-seven cen-

There are many points of. history
raised by this inscription, but it wiil
sullice to say that from the earliest days
of Babylonian history the city of "Sip
para of the Sun" was a prominent cen
ter of social and religious life. The ex
cavations, therefore, at Abu Hubba
have restored to us tho ruins of the J
great temiilo of the sun-god. " tho
House of Lignt." in tho Chaldoan Hcli
opolis. The monument reveals to us
the fact that there was a second city of
Sippara, whoso ruins are probab'y
marked by the mounds of Dcyr, nnd
which was dedicated to tho goddess
Anfit or Ammit. and tho two cities of
Sippara may be identified with tho
cities of Scpharvhim. mentioned by tho
Hebrew writers of tho Second Book of
Kings. This discovery is greatly en
hanced by the further discoveries "made
by Mr. Ilassam in another grave mound
of Chaldea, The excavations which tho
explorer made in the mounds of Hubl
Ibraheen, some ten miles east of Baby
lon, have restored records which prove
that Leneath those ruins were the re
mains of the temples and palaces of tho
Citv of Cutha. one of the great theolog
ical centers of Babylonia. In thesouth
crn portion of the larger of tho two
mounds at Hubl Ibraheem..Mr. Ras
sam found extensive remains" of build
ings, chambers and corridors, and
the inscribed bricks an 1 tablets recov
ered point to these edifices as being tho
remains of the great Temolo of Nergal
and his consort Laz, which was re
stored bv the great temple-builder,
Nebuchadnezzar. To the Biblical
scholar tho discoveries of these cities,
Sepharvaim and Cutha, is a great gain.
for from them were brought tho men of j
Sepharvaim and the men of Cutha. who
were placed in Samaria by the Assyrian
conqueror Sagon (2 Kings, svii., 2l-:l).
The descendants of these worshipers of
Adrammclcch and Anammelecn, and
Nergal, the god of Cutha, are now to be
found in tho small white-robed congre
gation who gather round the high priest
xakub in the Synagogue at Nabius. The
traveler who visits these lost remains of
the seed of Israel may carry his thoughts
far back beyond tho days of tho Cap
tivity, into the azure of the past, to tho
days when the ancestors of these men
made the courts of Bit-Parra echo with
hymns of praise to tho Sun, the "lord
ot light and golden rays." The above
is the record of an explorer's short
campaign amid the buried cities of
Chaldea, and' its results are such as
lead us to hope for richer discoveries

from their kindly purse Or it will
seem such a creditable taste in the
boj's to want that micros'-ope. and to bo
socager to stu ry entomology, although
they have spent tnc price of the micro
scope in a bicycle, that the fascinating
instrument is very liktly to appear in
their room. Ami by this tender and
cruel generosity nil the force of th'iir
experience will bo wasted. Unless ef
fect is to follow cause, what dscipline
can there be? The law bears hard
only on those who infringe it. and to
tho end that they may not again trans
grc?". Besides the pnidcnco which th:s scne
of ownership develops it begets a self
respect as well. The habit of teasing
for money or for gifts is a form of beg
gary, ami. like all beggary, degrad-ng.
The child foels, although he does not
reason, that he has a right to certam
possessions at the hinds of his parents.
They are to h m. sources of unlimited
supply, and if his demand is refused he
is apt to feel resentful and defrauded.
But if he is told that just such a sum
and no more can be afforded for his lit
tle pleasuies, and that he may choose
himself what that shall buy. he will be
rich with half the nionc which Mould
have seemed niggardly hail it been
sj-cnt for him. There is a sweet rea
sonableness about children. and
a self-respect, that springs up vig
orous when they are respected.
And of all forma of trust none is so
flattering as that which confides the
use of money, for it inndies in the re
ceiver judgment, prudence, honesty
and honor. Harper's I'aznr.
Dry Earth for Betiding.
If any one wil" observe when the cows
choose to lio down in the vard or pas
ture, it w.ll be seen that thoy choose
the bare ground, rather than the soil
or bedding of straw. The same is true
of sheep. Wc have taken this hint
and furnished the cow-stables with
dry earth bedding. Leaves and s'raw
are poor absorbents in comparison. In
the pig-pens dry earth has no equal.
In very cold weather wc i:dd .straw or
leaves; but until the weather is "very
cold, the animals will bo more comfort
able with a bed of fresh so'.l, or of soil
chaugod once a fortnight or week. In
the chicken-house we have learned its
great value as a deodorizer. Our roo.sU
are over a sloping floor, on which we
occasionally scatter dry earth. The
droppings roll down into a pile of diy
earth. This is turned ocr with a
shovel each week or oftcner, and wo
can say the chicken-house is free from
any offensive odor, and the bright
combs and glossy feathers tell of the
health of the fowls. Dry earth is s
good preventive, too. of vermin on cat
tle, pigs and poultry. It mut be pro
cured at a dry time, and stored undci
shod or in the stables. It not onl)
promotes neatness and health, but
saves the very elements of the manure
which mako "them most valuable, and
most of which would evaporate if not
absorbed by tlie dry earth. Wc do
not like it as a bedding in the hor-e
stables, but it should be found in even
stable, to sprinkle the floor with as soon
as the bedding is removed in the morn
ing. "When removed from the stab'c.
styes and coops, it should bo kept undci
cover for spring use, or for drilling with
the wheat in the fall. Cincinnati Com
mercial. Patting a Iloap on a Barrel.
Tutting a hoop on a family flour
barrel is an operation that will hardly
bear an encore. The woman generally
attempts it before the man conies home
to dinner. She sets the hoop up on tho
end ol the staves, takes a deliberate
aim with the rolling-pin. and then,
shutting b'oth eyes, brings the pin down
with all her force on one arm. while the
other one instinctively shields her
face. Then she makes a dive for tho
camphor and unbleached muslin, and
when the man comes home she is sit
ting back of the stove thinking of St,
Stephen and the other martyrs, while a
burnt dinner and the camphor aro
struggling for 'the mastery. He says
that if she had but kept her temper she
wouldn't have got hurt. And he visits
the barrel himself and puts the hoop on
very carefully, and then adjusts it so
nicely to the Jtop of every stave that
only a few smart raps apparently are
needed to bring it down affright. And
then he laughs to himself to think
what a fuss his wife kicked up for a
simple matter that only needed a little
patience to adjust itself; then he gets
the hammer, and gives the hoop a
small rap on one side, and the other
flies np and catches him on the nose,
filling his soul with wrath and his eyee
with tears, and, the next minute the
barrel is flying across the room, ac
companied by the hammer, aad another
caaaiaate for camphor aati rag is ca
rolled ia the great, array that is na-
eeasiagly marching toward the grave.

The present fashionable shoo is an

The fashion-makers don't eera to care

women blindly adopt them despite the
fact that all eae and racc must be lost
in the effort required to keep balanced
on the points of the toes and a two and

as much care as she would the beauty

too large nor too small.
We all accept tho o'd Greek statues
as the finest nmdels of the highest types
of physical beauty, and in not one of
them do we find evidence of the com
pression of the feet. The toe set well
apart, there is never to be found ou
them signs of corn or callosity, and the
instep rises with graceful, poetic arch,
surmounted by a slender ankle. Wo
do not find this classic and elegant con
formation in one pair of feet out of a
thousand in the present day. and it is
to be accounted for. first, by tho im
pmdence and van tv of the mother, and
a'terwards by tho children themselves,
when they are free to follow the bent of
their own inclinations.
Corns are produced by pressure or
friction, and are simply a protective
growth thrown out for the purpose of
preyenting the tisues being injured,
ilicv nre sufficiently pain nil at all
times, but nro the most .unbe irablo '
when an nccumula'ion of pus takes t
place beneath them. The ecapo of
th s drop of pus is prevented by the
hardened or thickened cuticle, which
must be soaked in warm water, then
removed by a sharp pointed knife.
Avo'd the use of caustic in the treat
ment of corn", but great relief will bo
obtained by the application of carbolic j
acid. I lard corns may bo treated as 1
follows: Take a thick piece of soft '
leather or felt, cut a hole in the center '
of it, spread the leather or felt with ad-1
hesive plaster, and apply it so that the
summit of the corn will rest in the hole
;., i. nt..r i,.n o;n.r tn i,.i ..I
night fill the hole in tho center of the
leather with a pasto made of soda and
I soap; wash it of! in the morning. Be-
1 peat tho tame process for several nights
and the corn will be removed.
Bunions nre siK-h serious and painful
diseases of tho foot that it is always
best to consult an experienced chiropo
dist in their treatment, but great relief
w ill be experienced bv 1 he application
of a slice of lemon bound en and worn
until the intlamm-itiou subsides.
To relieve the foft when they are
soro and raw. bathe in salt water'night
and morning, and wear plantain leaves
wrapped round the feet inside the stock
ings for a month.
I'erspirat on of tho feet is very annoy
ing, but can bo cured by using ammonia
in tho foot bath.
When the feet are sore, as from long
walking, tike a tablcspoonful of epsom
sa'ts, lve orsix drops of tincture of cap
sicum, and put it in a shallow basin of
water just enough to cover the soles
of tho feet and .soak them for twenty
minutes. You will be surprised at the
relief it will givo you. It will euro

An Apt Biblical Quotation.
Whero was it somebody was telling
the Jester about a good old preacher
somewhere down in Ohio, who loved
h s pi no and cigar far better than he
did the man who always keeps awake
through thejiymns an I goes to sleep
during the sermon? One day, the com
mittee of brethren came to remonstrate
w.th the parson for about tlie hundredth
time, beseeching and commanding him
to abandon the wicked and liilby habit
of smoking. " If," they told him, "yon
can give us ono passage of Scripture,
one lino from the Bible that justifies
you in the use of tobacco, wc will let
you smoke in peace and neverapproach
you on the subject again."
"H'm," said the old man, "youmean
that, do you?''
" Indeed, wc do mean it, and we will
abide by what we say," said the com
mittee. " Then," said the parson, brightening
up, "how does Revelation xxii, 11,
strike vou 'He which is filthy, let him
be filthy st'ilir" And thoy turned
away and were speechless. Burlington
Charges of cruelly by the officials
of the Lincoln Institute. Philadelphia,
had been published, and fifty men who
had been inmates were invited to in
vestigate the present management of
the concern- When they were ready
to report, a meeting was called " for
the purpose of vindication." Resolu
tions were read that "the boys were
uniformly healthy, bright and cheer
ful,'1 audi that no boy was ever ua
kindly treated while a pupil of the In
stitute." The Chairman said, in a con
fident tone: "All in favor say aye."
There were six ayes, aad the rest of the
fifty investigators said no. Then some
speeches were made denouncing Super
intendent Hugg as a merciless boy
whipper, and the meeting adjourned.
Hugg had hired an orchestra aad pre
pared a fine sapper, but it is said that
he did not seem to enjoy either the
music or the food.

What to Call Her.
When a woman addresses her part
ner with gushes of affection, as Hub
by," or "3Iy dearest hubby," he may
possibly like it if he can hear it. but
most men would like to bear almost
anything else. One fears that different
terms of address may follow, which
represent another mood. On the other
hand, when a man addresses hu epouse j
as " v nee. ii is almost impossioie o
avoid thinking of "dozsy," and there
is an unpleasant feeling of sickness at
hearing the word. Bnt when one hears

word u?cd by one of the moat distin
guished authors of New Knglaod la ad

the wife had her proper place in his af
fections. The word is expressive; it
grants the superiority of woman; it en
thrones her in his home. Quite ia con

households. It is always "Mr. Smith
and " Mrs. Smith," and one fears con
stantly that he may disturb the dignity
of that house. such severe propriety.
