The Minnoapolis Tribune, of Au
gaet 26, contains the following:
"A Pittsburg telegram to the Chi
cago Tribune eaye: A case of sin
gular interest has just been devel
oped at Beaver Falls, Pa., a few
miles west of Pittsburg. John
SlmniB, professor of muBic, has re
sided there for tho last four years.
Ho was joined yesterday by his
daughter, Mrs. James W. Bouk, of
ABhland, Nebraska. Twenty-threo
years ago the Simms family follow
ed the example of an uncle, G. W.
Walker, and emigrated to St. Paul,
Minn. Mrs. Bouk was then one
year of age. After a residence at
that place of a few months, the
mother paid a visit to relatives at
Lako Minnetonka, a summer resort
a few miles from Minneapolis. Dur
ing their stay there a party, of which
Mrs. Simms and her child formed a
part, took a sail on the lake. A
storm came up and they were cap
sized. Tho party was rescued, but
th child, now the woman who re
lates the story, wa9 so young that
she knows little of what took place.
They were taken to a hotel near a
town called Exeter. A paper pub
lished an account stating that Mrs.
Simms and daughter had both been
drowned in the accident. The father
read this and went to the lake to
look for their bodies. Mrs. Simms
in tho meantime, not knowing of
the misapprehension of her friends,
went to Keokuk to visit other
friends. While there she too, read
an announcement of the death of a
Mr. Simms whom she -supposed to
be her husband. The uncle men
tioned who had beforo this, left St.
Paul for Keokuk, now also disap
peared, leaving: no word, wishing, as
has since appeared, that his friends
should hear nothing of him until ho
succeeded in making that fortune
after which he went to tho west.
Thus,'' in the language of the nar
rator, 'in a fow short months a
family had boon separated to meet
nomoro for twenty-three years.'
Mrs. Bouk tells the remainder of
the story as follows: "My uncle
paid a visit to the Centennial Exhi
bition in 1876, and stopped in Alle
ghany City to ascertain whether ho
could find any trace of us. Some
gentleman told my uncle that he had
seen Prof. Simms in the city only a
few day ago. 'Impossible,' said my
uncle, 'for I read of his death.'
Nevertheless it was true. My uncle
wrote a lottor to my father and re
ceived an anBwor, stating that his
wife and child had been drowned.
My uncle returned to Keokuk, but
could not rest. He inserted an ad
vertisement iu a Chicago paper ask
iug information regarding my
grandmother and ray aunt. Be
tween the loth and tho last of April,
two years ago last spring, I was iu
my home at Ashland.Saunders coun
ty. Nebraska. I felt an impulse to
reau tuo Uhicago paper. The ad
vertisement caught my eye. I was
excitod, and told my husband to
answer it, as I could not. He did,
and in a few days received an an
swer from my uncle stating that I
was not his niece, as she had been
drowned. I then wrote a letter to
the effect that ho had lost two fingers
of one hand, and well, I related
circumstances that made. proofs pos
itive. In a few days my long-lost
uncle was at our house. Tho meet
ing can bo imagined. Theu follow
ed explanations, 6tating that my
fathor was living and well at Bea
ver Falls, Pa. I wrote my father,
but received answer that I could not
6uroly be his daughter, as she had
been drowned twenty-three years.
Another letter told him of "Little
Dallas," a dead brother, aud other
circumstances which made a clear

I started for Beaver Falls to find ray

not engaged in propelling itself, the
engine would saw wood or stone,
grind plaster, etc. Another 6uch an
engiue-of-all-work has probably
never been in existence before or
since. Thus far it is agreeable to
yield to a patriotic impulse, and fol
low the North American in claim
ing recognition for a neglected
countryman. But it only needs a
hasty comparison of the Amphibo
los with the Rocket to demonstrate
how untenable is the assertion that
EvanB invented the modern locomo
tive. His macbino is a most cum
brous att'air. It resembled nothing
so much as a fiat-bottomed scow,
carying an engine with a vertical
cylinder, working-beam aud fly
wheel (a locomotive with a working
beam and fly-wheel!) which could
be mounted on wheels which would
propel itself by an ingenious band
connection to both pairs of wheels,
or to a stern propeller. The sole
and considerable novelty about it,
eveu then, was that it was a high
pressure engine, and one of the first
of the kind. On the other hand, it
would be hard to name a single es
sential of the modern locomotive
which was not embodied iu the
Rocket of 1829, and, though there
have been numberless improvements
iu detail 6ince then, there has not

Stephenson's day, excepting only an
engine now building, and which has
not yet had its trial trip. Neverthe
less, it is only the rudest justice to
call either Stephenson the inventor
of the locomotive or Fulton the in
ventor of the marine engine. Noth
ing can excuse it except the popular
demand, which concerns itself very
little with niceties of detail, that tho
.honor shall be settled somewhere.
The truth is, and it is now very easy
to sec, that after the discovery of
power of steam its application to use
ou both laud and water was only a
question of time, and even Watt,
though he never worked out his
idea, added to his specification a
caveat as to this idea. From that
time down there were endless es
says, each one an improvement on
the other, so that land and murine
engines are both a growth, and no
one man can give to the world such
an euormous gift. Thus, while it
may be quite true, as it doubtless is,
that Oliver Evans, three-quarters of
a century ago, planned, in his mind's
eyo, a double-track railroad, sleeping-cars,
and a speed equal to a
pigeon's flight, the world will, nev
ertheless, probably continue to hon
or Fulton and Stephenson, next to
Watt, as the human sources of ono
of tho two great civilizing forces of
this century. N. Y. 'Times.
Nmall Compost Heaps.
All farmers know the value of
"compost" and how to prepare it.
Mauy farmers manufacture hun
dreds of loads of tho best manure in
this way. They gather together on
the premises forest - leaves, corn
stalks, including the roots, weeds,
vines, offal from fence-corners, muck
from ponds and ditches, occasional
sprinklings of lime through the
mass, layers of barnyard manure,
and thus build up oblong squares
and let it remain over winter.
When April arrives the mass has
gone through fermentation and com
minution, and presents a mound of
fertilizing matter better than a small
gold mine would bo to the proprie
tor of the farm. But we want to
see these compost heaps in the gar
den, and there is no reason why
they ehould not be there as well as
upon the farm. There is rubbish
enough in the garden, with tho as
sistance of leaves, some mole from
the woods, if attainable ; if not, from
portions of the premises where it
can be spared ; scrapings from the
turnpike; manure from tho stable
and every attainable substance that
will decay through the winter. A
little slacked lime will be a good
assistance. A half dozen to a dozen
loads of excellent manure will be
manufactured by the time it is want
ed in the spring, without incurring
scarcely any expense. Germantown

A nuisance that troubled Europe
fitty years ago is attracting attention
here that is putting alum in the
bread we eat. The bread must be
"light" that it may bo digested ; that
is, it must bo filled by the well
known cells wo are accustomed to
see in it. Where beer or ale is
brewed, those who understand
healthy bread-making procure yeast
which "lightens" the bread hotter
than an substitute, and is whole
some. Where yeast is not readily
obtained, "baking powders" are re
sorted to, and out of them come mis
chief. Bicarbonate of soda and
cream of tarter, or tartaric acid, are
tho usual ingredients used in a good
baking powder. Cream of tartar
sells at sixty cents to eighty-five
cents a pound. This high price has
led cheap baking powders to be made
of alum as a substitute for some or
all of the cream of tartar. Alum
will make bread look white, so that
bakers can make inferior flour sal
able as bread by its use; and they
use it in sotno places calling it
"rock," so that no inadvertant ex
pression may let 'outsiders' know
that alum is used. Alum is an in
jurious articlo in the human consti
tution in large quantities, or iu small
quantities often repeated. It is the
small quantities taken every meal
that do the mischief in bread. Alum
is cheap three cents a pound to
the pocket, but it takes what is so
saved out of the stomach, and takes
it with fearful interest. Alum is an
astringent, aud is used by dyers and
others as such. Taken frequently
on the human stomach, it produces
heartburn, indigestion, constipation,
dyspepsia, and kindred troubles re
sulting from irritation of the mucus
mombranc produced by the astrin
gent properties of the alum. All
these are nice things to be inflicted
by the bread we eat ever morning,
noon and evening. To young chil
dren, growing girls, persons of
weakly constitution and frame" and
sedentary occupations, this alum
bread is poison most especially. If
the reader wants to know something
of alum, let him suck a lump of it,
notice the effect upon the mouth,
which is something like that of an
unripe persimmon ; then let him
reflect how it acts upon the tender,
delicate coats of tho stomach. Dr.
Henry A. Mott. the celebrated an
alytical chemist, analyzed twenty
three of tho baking powders now in
use, and found alum in all but ono.
It is timo wo took measures td stop
this bread poisoning, that kills our
little ones, and perpetuates dyspep
sia and cholera.
Who Invented tho Steam-Engine ?
To what man and to what Nation
is the world indebted for the inven
tion of the locomotive engine ? The
Philadelphia North American
claims that honor for tho little
known name of Oliver Evans, of
that city, and courteously corrects
the Times for a recent incidental
illusion to the invention as having
had its origin in England, and being
only afterward brought to higher
perfection in the United States than
it has elsewhere reached. We have
not at hand that number of the
North American, primed in 1878, in
which Evans' claims are set out at
length, but upon investigation of
other authorities it appears clear
that sufficient credit has not been
givea to the candidate for Steven
son' or Trevellick's and Viviau's
honors. Thus it ia beyond a ques
tion that so early as 1787 bo obtain
ed a patent from Maryland for 6team
carriages on common roads, and he
thereafter developed his idea until
hih Oruktor Amphibolos was com
plete. Even now it is difficult to
see what he could then have added
to it. It would, aud did, move

A Ulncartled Wife.
Another American girl who sought
distinction in a titled husband has
come to grief in the dissolution of
the marriage between Miss Moulton,
of this city, and Count Von Harlz
feldt, of Germany, who gives up his
wife in order to enjoy political hon
ors. Mrs. Moul ton's mother was a
Miss Metz, and her grandmother
was once a favorite actress. Her
parents several years ago madethoir
home in Paris, and it was there that
their daughter met tho German
Count whom she married in 18C9.
A German resident in this city is
quoted by the World as saying that
the law which the Count has obeyed
in discarding his wife is only a so
cial one. The German Court, ac
cording to the strict notions of the
Empress Augusta, regards either a
connection with the stage (oven by
inheritance only) or a divorco as a
bar to social Intercourse, and the
fact that the Countess's grandmother
was an actress may be the only rea
son why the Count could not be
come Secretary of State for Foreign
Affairs so long as he acknowledged
his American wife. If this is the
reason for his course, the moral les
son which it teaches of German
Court usages is not a flattering one.

The Various Stages.
When a girl first falls in love, it
is generally with some boy who tells
her in an ill-spelt note that he adores
her. Not beiug possessed of much
pocket mouey or many jewels of
value, ho generally presents her with
a ring and locket from some dollar
store, and sends her cheap valen
tines, with hearts and darts in them,
to the door by his little brother.
Cruel parents generally break off
this match, and sometimes flog the
boy, preach to tho girl, and burn up
the mementoes of affection. The
girl cries; the boy threatens to run
away to sea ; and in a year neither
remembers tho other.
A little after this the girl, having
grown romantic, begins to think that
a wounded hero of some sort is nec
essary to her happiness. At this
stage of her existence she could
scarcely fall in love with a whole
man an empty sleeve, or a wooden
leg, or at least a scar or two, bein
necessary to awaken romance in her
soul ; and any rascal who limps has
more chanco with her than any st ut
and physically uumarred individ
As bodily afflictions are not al
ways tokeus ot perfect souls, this
lovo-dreara is very apt to end un
comfortably ; the adorod one having
perhaps limped into very evil com
pany, or used his remaining arm
for anything but honest purposes,
especially if regular introductions
havo been disponsed with in the full
current of romance.
After this, "mind" becomes the
object of the young lady's adorution.
She gives her heart to young stu
dents with bumpy foreheads, to bald
professors, to near-sighted scientific
gentlemen. For their sakes she
adores Greek, Latin,bugs ofnll sorts,
those portions of rock and stone
called "specimens" by tho general
public, and all the oligies. But,
alas! the learned gentlemen arc
usually destitute of romance and
do not propose; or, if they would
like to do so, are deterred by tin
thought of having nothiug to live
on. And after certain solemn mo
ments of reflection, the young per
son, now approaching thirty, takes
an entirely now view of love affairs
in general and of her own in partic
ular. She decides that the only
man who can make a woman happy
is a good, substantial, solid man. It
doesn't matter to her, in these days,
whether ho is handsome or plain,
has one arm or two, is learned or
ignorant. It is in his bank account
that sho is interested. Her olden
vow that "sho would never mar
ry one that had loved before" is
forgotten, and she espouses the go'
den widower of five wiveB wl o
