When I was alive that is to say, .
before my body had coaaed to exist
ana my eouiaaa gone upon imjuui-
ney Into tht great unknowable I
had curious theory, tho truth of
which I an now about to put to the
test by practical experienpe, and it
was this: I believed that if one's
soul could but re-visit this earth and
find that ita one-time companions
were happy and regretted its flight
heavenward, how much more peace
fully could the spirit return to the
beyond, and cheerfully take up its
place among the Immortals. It
afforded me much pleasure to spec
ulate upon this; theory, and it will
giv me comfort to know that all the
fellow-creatures with whom I once
associated when my soul was en
cased in an earthly tenement still
think of me as I shonld have been,
not as I was, i. e., faultless and gen-
oroua, numuie ana Hou-Huuiiui-iuB,
kind and good.
You may say there is a sort of
grim or deathly humor about my
introductory'reflections. That shows
that you are still in the world and
not out of it as I have been for what
you of the living call five years.
We do not, in my present sphere,
reckon time as you do; years
with us aro bnt sands in the illimit
able space of eternity. To mo this
grim humor if you can call it
humor is as natural as breathing
would bo to you. I am only indulg
ing in reflections and speculative
fancies that we, of tho spirit land,
occasionally fall into, just tho reverse
of what you of tho earth think in
regard to the Great Beyond. You
may imagine I am about to reveal
the secrets of eternity, but you will
be mistaken if you continue in that
though, although I am a spirit, and
possess, In common with my follows
the powers, the onenesB, and the
ethereality of an indefinite object,
yet there is a point beyond which
even I cannot go, and upon my lips
has been sot the seal of the f
Spirit, whose power all les.spiril8

T, aot committing to my
fellow spirits in any
"way whatsoever that the wisdom
of tho Great Spirit in thus locking
up tho secrets of oternity from the
covetous eye of man is beyond all
doubt unquestionable. What good
would this knowledge do mankidd?
"Would it make them any tho more
happy in life, or more willing to
face death? Unquestionably not!

justice and mercy drawn an Impen
etrable veil between earth and
heayen, which for the earthly con
tentment of mankind, must not be
rent asunder save by the soul. Every
one has been put upon the earth for
some purpose known only to tho
infinite ; and when immortal knowl
edge granted to mankind the chains
of life might become insnpportable
and lead mankind to self-destruction

As alcoholicdrinka have happily
long been driven from the harvest
field8,tbere have been various drinks
besides water substltuted.but scarce
ly any of them meeting fully the
conditions sought for iu the way of
a wholesome, satisfying beverage.
Water, even iu all its purity, does
not seem to quench the thirst and
stimulate tho body, as it produces
additional perspiration and passes
through the pores almost like pass
ing through a colander, leaving the
system exhausted and weak ; besides
a drink of cold water,when suffering
under a great Jegrec of heat, is dan
gerous, even at times producing
sudAen death. Latterly in England
and elsewhere a drink is prepared
by mivincr nut-meal with wafer, in
the proportion of three or, Jour
ounces to a gallon of water. This is
found" not onlyTo satisfy"the thirst
better than water, or molasses and

Conrtnlilp la Greenland.
There Is something exceedingly
melancholy in the accounts which
are given of the custom of courtship
in Greenland. Generally women en
tor noon tho blessed estate with
more willingness and less solicitude
than men. The women of Green
land are an exception to this rulo.
A Greenlander, having fixed his
affections upon some female, ac
quaints his parents with the stato of
his heart. They apply to tho pa
rents of tho gljfl, and If the parents
are thus far agreed the next pro
ceeding is to appoint two female
negotiators whose duty is to broach
the subject to tho young lady, ims
iB a matter of great tact and delica
cy. The lady ambassadors do not
shock the young lady to whom they
are sent by any sudden or abrupt
avowal of the awful subject of fheir
mission. Instead of doing this they
launch out in praises of tho gentle
man wno seeKB ucr uuu. au,
speak of the splendor of his house,
tho sumptuousness of his furniture,
of his courage and skill in catching
seals, and other accomplishments.
The lady, pretending to be affronted
pvnn At these remote hints, runs
away, tearing the ringlets of hair as
she retires, while the ambassadress
es, having got tho consent of her
parents, pursue her, take uer uy
force to the house of her destined
husband and thero leave her. Com
pelled to remain there sho sits for
days with dishevelled hair, silent
and dejected, refusing every kind of
sustenance, till at last, if kind en
treaties do not prevail, she is com
pelled by force, and even by blows,
to submit to the detested union. In
some cases the Greenland women
faint at the proposals of marriage;
in others they fly to the mountains
and only return when compelled to
do so by tho hunger and cold. If
one cuts off her hair it is a sign that
she is determined to resist to death.
The Greenland wife is tho slave of
her husband, doomed to a life of
toil, drudgery and privation.
Health la Summer.
wi i amkmi?e
Now that s
..nairionta of crowded cities an
towns cannot be too careful as to
their diet and personal habita. The
danger from sunstroke or exhaus
tion is not very great for people in
ordinary health, but any physician
will endorse the statement that too
crmat care cannot be exercised to
ward off those diseases which in
evitably follow imprudence during
tbe heated term. Too many people
observe the same roles of living in
the dog daysyhat they do Mn the
bracing atmosphere of fall and win
ter, and, as a rule, they pay dearly
for their imprudence. Even in the
matter of clothing but little care is
taken to provide againBt sudden
changes of temperature, or during
periods, of intense heat to reduce
the temperature of the body. Many
persons also expose themselves to
the sun in the moBt reckless manner,
while others are equally imprudent
as to the kind and equality of their
food. The latter is a most impor
tant consideration. Tho simpler
and more nourishing the food the
better; yet how few restrict them
selves or show the least discrimina
ion in selecting the supplies for
their tables during the summer
months. Frequent bathing, moder
ate exercise, abstention as far as
possible from all excitement, rigid
supervision of drainage, cleanliness
not only in the living rooms of tbe
house, but in all the obscure places

Gathering around their new leader

There was a Kansas City Journal
reporter on the train that carried
Grant from Galena, and one of hia
first exploits was to sail through the

struck was a short, thick-set man
with a beard, who eat gazing pen
sively out of the window with a
cigar in his mouth.
"Are you one of the invited
guests?" asked the reporter, tap

The man said he was and kept on
