The three great remedies for the ir
remediable evils of death, toll and igao
ranccof the future have bees sought
for, how earnestly aad blindly! The al
chemists, whose art flourished for so
many centuries, would have it that al
chemy was as old as man himself; that
its name was derived from Shcm, tho
on of Kcavfa; that Noah himself must
have possessed the elixir vitce that
Hermes Trismegistus founded it among
the Egyptians, where Moses learned it,
as was proved by his making the gold of
the golden calf .float on the water. The
Chinese claim to havo "known all about
alchemy 4,400 years ago. Certain it is
that in the first centuries of the Chris
tian era there were pretenders to the art
of making gold and silver in Korae,
whom the authorities punished as knaves
and impostors, and at Constantinople in
the fourth century transmutation at met
als was very generally believed in.
These early Greek alchemist held that
all metals were composed of two sub
stancesmetallic earth and a red, in
flammable substance called "sulphur."
The pure union of these produced gold,
but other metals were mixed with and
contaminated by various foreign ingre
dients, which the philosopher's stone
would infallibly and instantly detect.
Thence to the eighth century, when the
-delusion reappeared among the Arabs,
its course cannot be traced with certain
ty. Gcbcr. who flourished about 730, is
credited with writing 600 treatises on
the philosopher's stone and the water
of life. Gold was to him tho only
metal in perfect health, and ho be
lieved that a preparation of gold would
cure all the maladies incident to the
animal and vegetable kingdom. If lie
did not find tho precious stone, he did
lind such valuable things as corrosive
siibHmato, the. red oxide of mercury,
nitric acid, and the nitsato of silver.
For tho next two centuries the Arabian
philosopher practiced alchemy and as
trology;, but after Aviccnna's death in
103G the scat of their study was trans
. ferrcd to. Europe, where it was at its
brightest in the twelfth and thirteenth
centuries. Among the most eminent
men of the time was Albertus Magnus,
who had Thomas Aquinus for a pupil.
Between them the' made, according to
the legend, that famous brazen statue
which spoke and acted as a servant

Reasons, it may hi added. Artephitts,
who pretended to bo 1,023 years old, de
clared that he had found tho elixir, and
tho stone as well; to tho latter discovery

Mas hacked alwosCTo death, dving,
however, -bdforo his trial had bedn'ebn-
eluded. Raymond Lylli was a still
more eminent adept, who labored con
currently at finding tho philosopher's
stono and converting tho Mussulmans.
A dubious story makes out that he once'
vis.iett .hngiand anil was assignod apart
ments in tho Tower, where, if tho
legends do not lie, he made 6,000,000
worth of gold out of iron, quicksilver,
lead and newter. In his "Testament
um," Lulli boasted of having-convcrted
50,000 pounds of these base metals into
gold. Roger Bacon was a firm believer5
iu too iriwuuuuc siouu ami an araem
aceker for it, though ho did not there
fore neglect his studies in phvsics,and
astronomy. Pope John X&II. 'was
claimed by the alchemists as adistin-
Siished worker in. their craft, and they
slstcd that his bulls on the subject
were only aimed at false pretenders, and
claimed that the 18,000.000 florins he
left ia hie coffers had been made, be
cause they could not have been amassed.
Jean de Meung, tho author of the
"Ronumdedcla Rose." was another
alchemist of note, and played a sad
practical joke on the Cordeliers,, to
whom he bequeathed a weighty chest,
which they fancied would contain his
treasure, but proved to be filled
with dates scrawled with hiero
glyphics. Nicholas Flamel after

Cairo it the seesed cKy of impse

tlH'ipIe being the f nC it is sitnated
about 120 wiles southeast of the now
ruined city of Alexandria, a mile from
the right hank of the Nile and tea
miles above the delta of that river. It
hat a population of about 400.000 peo-
!, Mohammwdans, Copts. Jews.
Ircek, Armenians and Europeans.
Tb i city lies mostly on the plain of the
Nile Valley, but the southeast part, in
cluding the citadel, is built upon tho
spur of the Mokkoiara Mounts n. Cairo
occupies a site of about seven miles ia
circumference. Strangers who visit It
are enchanted by itf appearance from
without, but their golden dreams are
discllc(l as soon as they sst foot inside.
The bouses as a rule are wretched little
huts one tory high, and toe streets are
Illy kept, unpaved, and in a tiltby con
dition. Clouds of dut are met at
every hand, and a heavy rainfall is con
sidered a calamity, for the garbage in
the streets undergoes rapid decomposi
tion. The Esbekizah, the prncipal
public place. Is planted with ahurbs
and trees and crossed by walks. Cairo
is famous for its mosque, some ol them
elegant specimens of Arabian archi
tecture. The mott cc!ebntfcd of tho
fourhundred of these htructures is that
of Sultan Hassan, near the citadel.
Ihe mosque tl-Ahor ccle -
braled for the beauty of its
architeclurc and for a collciro to
which hundreds of students resort from
all parts of the Mohammedan world.
The mosque of Tallin, founded A. D.
Sl'J, contains specimens of tho pointed
arch which was afterward introduced
into Europe, and was one of the charac
teristics of the (Jothic stylo of architect
ure. Northeast of the city, just ouUldo
the walls, are a number of beautiful
mosques built over the tombs of the Cir
cassian and Borgitc moaks. In tho
southeast is the citadel, on a hill 2.10
feet above the rest of tho city, contain
ing the palace of the Khedive the mint,
a manufactory of arms, various ("overn
ment otliccs, barracks and other build
ings, and a splendid mojqtie, begun by
Mehemet Ali. Within the citadel a
deep well is cut 280 feet deep, intended
to supnly the garrison in case of siege.
The different races who inhabit Cairo
live iu distinct quarters, of which there
are many, as the .Jew quarter, the Frank
quarter, liio Coptic quarter, etc Tho
streets leading to each quarter arc closed
at night by gates. The Khedive main
tains a theater for French comedy, and
1111 01 era house and a good ballet- in
the Frank quarter is the libra-y of the
Egyptian association. Thuro are also
many Protestant and Catholic charita
ble institutions in Cairo, where all per
sons of all creeds are treated alike. The
Americans, among others, hao a relig
iousjnission iu the eitv. Cairo has two
siiburbs, iioolak and tfiisr-cl-Abck, boih
of which are 0:1 the batiks of tho Nile,
and .serve as ports to the city.
Cairo was founded about A. D. 970,
bv .lobar, a General of Kl-Moez, the
chief Imam of the northwest coast of
Africa. He name it HI Kahirch (tho
victorious), in commemoration of his
cotiqueU of Egypt. Iu 1171 tho cru
saders laid siege to the city, but with
drew on the approach of" tho Svrian
army. Saladin greatly improved the
city. In 17jii the Turks defeated the
Mameluke beys in a battle before Cairo,
and took possess'on of the place, but
lot it aga'n in 1790. A few years later
General Bonanarte entered "Tniro with
his victorious nrniv. Tin eitv w.is.

triumphs of Mehemet Ali. At tho head
of the Albanians he con picred it so)n
after the departure of the French. He
then openly declared war on ihe Mame
luke beys. A considerable body of the
beys who were campjd before Cairo in
the summer of 1HW were enticed into
maVmg an attempt to ei.o the city.
They forced an entrance by a gr.to pur
posely left undefended, and marched
triumphantly through the streets until
they wew suddenly suirotin led by the
troops of Mehemet Ali. who slaughtered
them all without mercy. For the next
ten years Mehemet Alt kept on compar
atively good terms with tho beys. On
March 1, 1SI1, however, he enticed all
the Mamelukes in Cairo into the citadel
on pretense of witnessing the ccromonj
of investing his son Tusum with tho
command of nn nrniv to be sent against
the AVahabees in Arabia. The gates of
the fortrcssvere theu closed ujkjii them,
and they were killed to the number of

and disappeared in an instant. The

observing that the eddy was about swal
lowing the boat and crew, jumped out
mid clung to the rocks, and Gooch en

months ago n gentleman who n as go

two or three years, left with nut for
sale a very line parrot that, he said, he
had had for over live cans. The bird
spoke English extraordinary well and,
as he subsequently aured me. he
never knew that he spoke anything
else, as he had bought it from an En
glish lady, who had not told him that
ho knew any other language. But
while he was here a couple of ladies
entered the store one day nnd, while
looking about were chattering iu Span

of surprise, Carambal' It was the
tarrot. '1 hey talked to it in Spanish,
'or some little time it either could not

tonation as an exclamation of astonish
ment. At length, however, its memory
came back, and it began uttering a
variety of Spanish words with great vol
ubility. Tho ladies assured ine that it
spoke" Spanish exceedingly well, and
was what was still more remarkable-
a very decent bird, with good moral
training. One of them bought it and
f aid me a good price for it. A parrot
earns very quickly, if it is oin? to
learu at all. One that speaks Spanish
only whou it leaves South America will
pick up a great ileal of Knglidh in tho
course of a trip of three of four weeks

Minos are the same as parrots, talking
any language that is about them. Most
people have a mistaken idea about tho
miuo, that he simply fires off a shriek
ike a steam-whistle every five minutes
or so. But that is wrong. Ho can be
taught to talk, and very well, too. even
belter than most parrots. Parrots learn
German and French, or, indeed, any
language, the same as they do English;
but the birds that attain those accom
plishments gain them from private
owners, whd value them as pupils, as
Well as pets, and they seldom get into
our hands, except by accident. 1 was
aboard an outgoing French steamer, re
cently, ou business, just before she left
the dock, and noticed on the deck an
elderly French woman onebf a party
who was manifesting great solcitude
about a parrot that sbo had in a cage.
It was hard to tclt which one of them
was chattering French most vigorously,
she or the bird. I don't suppose she
would have taken .W0 for that Frchch
speaking parrot, which was intrinsically
worth about $15. I don't know that I
have ever encountered a German par
rot, but I have heard of them and know
that they exist."
Another bird-fancier, a German, said
upon that branch of the subject: "Ger

parrot seems to be socially adapted to
speaking German It is rather too
heavy for his tongue, and as a rule he
only fakes in the shorter and easier
words, and not a great many of them
then. He wonla have to be a very
hold parrot who would undertake to
swear in German. One of the best
German-speaking parrots I ever met
was owned by Dorabrowski, the Ger
man actor,who came over here a dozen
years ago to support the great Mrae.
Seebach. It was a villainously roalici
eos bird toward everybody except him,
bnt he had spent much time in petting
and traiaing it. and with surprisingly
rood results. He carried it abont with
him ia ali his travels, brought it here
froai Germany, lagged k around from
place to place, and a' sally took it back
with him. I don't think it would be
difficult for me, at aay time, to Sad for
easterner a German or a Freaea
sneakier parrot aor. of course, a oer
fectly educated one. but oae that conld

" Let's mt the rabbit trap." aJd Jack
one morning as wo were planning for
the day's campaign.
So wo carried tlm rahlrft trap, whleh
was a great hot with a swinging tloorT
up to the hedge Iwck of (he barn, and
set it. Fanner Hrown latiglied at h.
" F.f von seo a 'chuck, pot forth
nearest ho!o; ef you git thar trfore J.lm
you can stop hhn from gala' in."
t Tlti tdan seemed so much more.rx
citing than any other that we apant that
afternoon and the next day hiking for
a stray woodrhnck. Towanl crenlng
our patience wa rewarded by the s jriu
of a sroodchuck In tho middhi of a tisdd.
Jack and 1 had W thar time Wnn ihn
location of tho holes a well ns the'own
crs thcnttelve. and we both tnrted for
a burrow Its tho hedge.
The woodchuek saw ntt and hmCU fsr
tlw same burrow. Hchasln't o far to
ro, and was rvhltjittly In a great hHrry. j

The fosv of Jack's hat cast a damtw
