The Wet-Sheet Pack.
Y CARRIE MAY.
Header, did you ever
Take a wet-sheet pack,
Rolled up like a lnmntny,
Lying on its back.
Wei cloth on your forehead,
Bottle at your feet?
You would truly find it
A hydropathic treat.
Listen, while I tell you
How they give a pack
The modus operandi
Is really quite a knack.
First, they wrap you closely
In a dripping sheet,
A bottle of hot water
Is then placed at your feet :
Blanket after blanket
Wrapcd about your form,
Comfortables in plenty,
Keep you nicely warm :
Firm about the shoulders,
Tight about the feet,
All the sides tucked closely,
To Veep In all the heat :
Then a cold, wet towel
Put upon the head ;
You are packed and almost
Helpless to the head.
Do not think of stirring
Head, or foot, or hand (
You must bide your time out
You can not burst a band.
Still 'tis quite delightful,
Lying at your ease 1
You're in such a happy mood,
Any thin will please.
Acting like a opiate,
Easing all your pain,
Calming down your bounding pulse,
Cooling off your braia
Puts you in a slumber,
Gives you dreams of bliss,
Naught In any " Treatment "
Is so nice as this.
When it all works nicely,
You have a charming time,
If you have not tried one,
Reader, do it's prime.
But, as faithful chronicler,
Perhaps I ought to tell,
'Tis not every one you get,
Pleases you so well.
If you're feeling nervous
Tired and can not rest,
You'll surely Nil to like them,
Though you try your best.
Now perchance the wet cloth,
Placed upon your head,
Will begin to drip drip
Drip upon the bed.
Till to your distracted nerves
The tiny drops will sound,
Large as cannon-balls, that weigh
Net less than forty pound.
But you're very lucky,
If the drops don't steer
In another channel,
And trickle in your ear.
If you should make the effort
To get into a doze,
First you know, a saucy fly
Has lighted on your nose
Runs his sharp preboacis
Through the very skin
Delighted with the ovtsidc,
Takes a sip within 1
Sets your nose to itching,
Darts upon your eyes,
Dances o're the lashes,
Your patience sorely tries.
Then he scampers over
Brow, and cheek, and lip,
In your ear finds water
Stops to take a sip.
You twitch the muscles right and left,
Work tbem up and down,
Blow and try a broad grin
Then you try a frowu.
All your efforts will not
Start bin from his lace,
He's taken such a fancy
To your pleasant face.
Then perhaps the bottle,
Tucked up with yaur feet,
Loses out the stopple,
Water scalding beat.
This has eapp'd tht climax,
Worn your patience out,
With the strentgh that's left you,
Give 1 kiety stoout.
And scream perhaps until you're
To make some person hear,
For you're more than lucky,
If any one is near
Unless It be some romrade
In the self same pligl t,
Lying on another bed,
And tucked up jsst as tight.
Still, with such exceptions,
A pack is very fine
If you never tried one,
Reader, it is time.
The following story (if thu Into Silas
Wright, taken from the Daily Wisconsin,
affords a lesson which Americ an youth
nnd American Hutcsiuen would do well to
Silas Wright, with his estate of $ 1,000
was really wealthier than many others are
with SlOO.000. lie owed no man any
thing ; ha met his obligations with the ut
most promptness, nnd never indulged in
ny luxury that lie could not pay for. lie
was a modle of republican simplicity. It
should also bo understood that he was not
nean in saving money. There was some
thing glorious in witnessing a great states
man hue Silas right never usking pe
cuniary favor, or even accepting one, yot
possessing only an income that could bop-
ort him and his wits with frugality.
When he was elected Govcnor of the
Stato of New York, ho was known to be
too pour to furnish his house. His rich
friends got together, and, without Ins
knowledge, made up a subscription, which
was tendered bim as a gift, in order to
furnish his mansion. This ho respectful-
y but kindly declined, saying, with a true
Komnn grandeur, that he could not con
sent to receive such a favor from any one
even from his most esteemed friends :
ho was elected by the people to be Gov
ernor of the Slate of New York, and he
considered it his imperative duty to live
on whatever income the peoplo had np-
ended to that oliice ; and he did live on
thu income while he was Governor, in
good style, but with no osten'ation. Such
an example on the part of so eminent a
man us he was is one of those precious
legacies that the young men of the pres
ent day should bear in mind ns no true
greatness can ever be achieved so long as
they are the pecuniary slaves of even their
nearest friends. When a public man re
ceives favors that he can not repay, he
uses that tturdy independent so essen
tial to usefulness and an enduring popu-
arity. " Live within your income," is
more important to one who aims to be an
influential and useful statesman, than any
Coal Bunino Locomotives. Nu
merous unsuccessful attempts have been
made, durin? the last ten years, for sub
stituting coal for wood, as fuel for locomo
fves. When it is known that all over
Europe eoko is used as successfully as
wood is here, it is not easy to understand
why there should be any dilliculty in using
anthracite ; but practice tins shown that
there are many. There are now, mainly,
three different plans for the attainment of
this object, and they are all approved by
competent engineers. In one of these tho
novelty consists in making the flames fol
low a curved flue, instead of going
straight to the chimney ; the smoke is
thus more thoroughly mixed with air, and
consequently better burned; there is also
an arrangement to supply the furnace
with warm air. Another locomotive, bas
ed on a different arrangement to the same
end, wtighs 59,000 pounds, the driving
wheels are five feel in diameter, the
stroke is twenty-two inches, the boiler is
forty-nine inches in diameter and eleven
and a half feel long. The barrel proper.
extending from the name sheet to the
smoke arch, is seven feel and a half long
and forty inches in diameter. There are
179 brass tubes of two inches outside di
ameter and seven and a half feet Ion".
The fire box measures sixty by thirty-two
inches, with a combustion chamber extend
ing four feet into the barrel of the boiler.
This chamber is divided by a water leg,
extending from the front of the fire box to
within twenty inches of the tube sheet.
Around the combustion chamber there are
apertures which are opened and closed at
pleasure, and by wbich air can be let 111
to burn the gases not yet consumed.
The Highest Waterfall in the world is
in the Sandwich Islands, and it is stated
to be between four and five thousand feet
high. The stream on which the fall oc
curs runs among the peaks of one of the
highest mountains, so high that the water
actually never reaches the bottom, so
great is the distance, and ascends to
j 111c 1 iuiiu aaiu.
lioit.io Wheat roa Dkssliit. Pick
over and waah a pint of white wheat,
boil it four hours, put iu salt tho same ns
for rice; refill with boiling water, if more
is needed ; stir often tho last half hour,
being careful not to let it burn ; cook it
dry. Sometimes it looks starchy when
first dished, but that soon disappears.
Serve hot or cold, with sweetened nweet
cream. This we thiol" an excellent des
sert, and very line for invalids.
Another very rich dish, for dessert,
ran bo made of a pint of wheat, cooked
like the above, then boil in a quart of
sweet milk, one cup of sugar, one cup of
raisins, currants, or any fruit, (raisins are
prcfl'ernble,) two beaten eggs ; cook slow
ly, and stir until it boils j servo cold or
hot, without sauce. Or, after the wheat
is washed, soak it in warm water over
night, keep it wet till time for we. then
simmer the water all out of it; then add
tho milk and other ingredients, and cook
School or Dkmdn ron Women. An
Englishman, William A. Neil, of New
York City, lias presented to tho School of
Design for Women, at the Cooper Insti
tute, forty casts of Thorwaldseri a princi
pal bus-rt!irfi. They oro of tho size of
the originals in the Copenhagen Museum.
Tho castsaro finely executed. Some other
casts were included in the donation. Tho
object of this school is. to teach women
painting (on china nnd in oil colors), on
graving on wood and stone, and the art of
designing, by which means they can sup
port themselves honorably without swell
ing the ranks, already crowded, of those
who depend for bread upon the needle.
Among the bat-rrlir.fi are "Night and

Four Evangelists," " The Ages of Love,'
A Rich Scene. A few days since I
chanced to stumble into an auction sale of
damaged dry goods where the bids were
spirited, and thu large crowds of males
and females were viewing with each other
in their offers, when a pair of blankets
wero put up, and dozen bids were raised
for them. The puzzld auctioneer, how
ever, caught by the highest, which was,
I think a dollar, from a female who seem
ed determined to have them at any price,
when, ere he could sny " going" a male
voice cried out " dollar fifty," from the
opposite side of the room.
" Two dollars," echoed the woman, el
bowing her way through the dense mass
of females who were separated ' from the
males by a long cnuntr upon which the
glib-tongued functionary walked to and
fro with the goods.
Turning to the other side, he commenc
ed anew his stereotypye vocabulary of
choice and amusing figures of speech till
he touched the final.
Two fifty," nodded tho man.
"Thank ye, sir. Coin? at two fifty."
" Three !" screamed the woman.
" Four," replied the man.
"Go the fifty!" said the auctioneer,
turning to the woman with a half-suppressed
smile on his small, sober visage.
A nod from the woman.
Four fifty I'm offered ; give me five ?
Come, don t be afraid, they re worth doub
Id the motif y."
" Yes, nnd that's all."
" Sold !" cried the knight of the ham
mer, almost bursting with luughter, " to
Captain Smith, for five dollars."
" Smith !" exclaimed the woman, " what
my husband ?" raising herself on tip-toe
to catch a glance. " Why, you good-for-nothing
man, you've bidding against
your own wife ! Oh, you impudence! Jut
1 won't have them in the house !"
A Dutchman's Idea or IlESEoiTAar
Gout. An old friend, a distinguished
and ex-war minister, resident in Pennsyl
vania, tells a good story of a Dutch neigh
bor of his who had the gout, and was
greatly puzzled to know how he caino by
nat 11 tne matter witn vou, my

called in to see his sick neighbor.
