• -starching and ironing are unknown ,
rihe female servants do all the laundry
-vork. The reason of the great num
ber of laundrymen here is that when
'flie Union Pacific Railroad threw
iiundreds of Chinamen out of employ
ment they cast about for something
to do , and as there was a great de-
-niand for washerwomen , and a scant
-supply - of them in the "West , the Mon
golian turned his attention to her
irade. He learned it so quickly and
-so well that he stuck to it , and made

ly determined if possibleor on

ward in the hospital of the institi

seo how many ofthe children entire

"Constant cpughing is presiBel ;
like scratching a wound on the out
side ofthe body ; so long asit is don
the wound will not heal. Let a per
son , when tempted to cough draw i
long breath and hold it until i
warms and soothes .every air cell
and some benefit will soon be receiv
ed from the process. The nitrogen
which is thus refined , acts as an ano
dyne to the irritated mocus mem
brane , allaying the desire to cougl
and giving the throat and lungs i
chance to heal. At tho same time i
suitable medicine will aid nature ii
her effort to recuperate. " Baltimore
The Magic Tree ,
On a certain plantation , which ii
will bo as well not to locate , then
was a very large , hollow orange-tree
which , according to the St Louie
Post-Dispatch , had never borne * anj
fruit , although it blossomed regular
ly every spring. After blossoming
tho blossoms would all gradually dis
appear and a small orifice on th&end
of the twig would be all' that
was left for the balance of tho yeairc
This went on for a good many
years , until one day the place was
sold to a man from tho North , who
determined to cut down tho tree and
solve the mystery if possible. He
accordingly had the tree cut down1 ,
and instead of finding a solid trunk
he found nothing but a large out
side shell of a tree , whilethe in
sidewas perfectly hollow and
svas occupied by a largefamily
3f squirrels and a colony of bees-
The bees and squirrelswere very
iight in color and did not appear to
liave any eyes , and the oranges were
ilongated instead of roundalthough
eery sweet tasting , and otherwise ap
peared to be excellent fruit. . The man
, vas puzzled to account for the
phenomenon , as there was no > open-
ng in the tree by which evemthe bees
: ould get inside it , but the mystery
vas explained by an old' ' colored
nan , who had been on the place
nany , many years. He toldi the fol-
owing story :
"When the orangetreewas - very
imall it was found tobe growinghol-
ow , and after it got to > be-about ai

politely ; "perhaps anothertime - we

"Possibly , " and the-iady pickedtup

out even a word of thanks , , although
the saleswoman had been showing
her laces for half aa hour , , and had
taken down box after box for her-ex

You might have sold to two or thre

to the lace counter , and declining t

waited several minutes for Helen t

Then she asked to see laces agaii

the customer made a small purcha *

"Within a few days she did con
