"It uiny6c, after all, I'll get damn
ed for my smartness," said Robert
Ingersoll; before an applauding
throng intfce Brooklyn academy of
music last' sight, "but I'll take my

" Liberty frMan Woman and
Child." ThejlectareiWaB uader the

publican clubVtfce lecturer to have
half of the net roseipts.- A score of
tall young men in swallow-tailcoats
filed upon the stage, and las.t of all,
like an opera tenor rushing ihrough
the chorus, came the leefqrer, who
swiftly strode o the foot-IIgh$s, and,
without any ceremony, began :
"In my judgment, after all, it is a
question of intellectual develop
: Mr. Tngersoll has a round head
and a smooth, fat face. His hair is
gray and thin on top, and his eyes
are dark and bright. They seem al
most buried in his round cheeks
when he laughs. No public orator
gesticulates bo much with the top
most part of his body. Ingersoll,
with a stiff neck, might be worth
only $100 a night Now he refuses
offers at $G00 a night. He tips his
forehead this or that way, and has a
most effective nod. lie throws in
an exclamation point with a uod.
"Honor bright" is a favorite reitera
tion. "It won't do!" is another
which he emphasizes with a shake
of the head. He is more theatrical
than Beecher or Talmago. He. peo
ples ' the platform with imaginary
dummies, and then flails them to
the delight of the audience. By
constant recurrence to these he
keepB them before his audience.
Last night be had "a rude dugout in
which floated a native savage one
of our ancestors with teeth two
inches in length, with a spoonful of
brains in the back of his head."
This, to start with, he seemed to
place at a certain spot on the stage,
and when he went over that way
tb audience instinctively recalled
his description, and was prepared to
hear something about the dugout.
Mr. Ingersoll's voice is soft and
melodious. His manuer and move
ments upon the stage, with his
wonderful nod, are the elements of
bis success as a popular orator.
"I was once iu the company of
some Baptist ministers," said In
gersolj.4;! don't how I ever got
there, and they asked ray opinion as
to baptism. I said that with soap I
regarded it as an excellent institu
tion. If you tell me what a man's
religion Is I'll tell yon what is the
high-water mark of his intellect
just how many he carries to the
pouud. "When a man thinks that he
baa found it all out, ho is orthodox.
The man in a dngout is orthodox.
Heresy is a cradle; orthodoxy is a
coffin. Heresy is a banner; ortho
doxy ib the shroud. Heresy gives a
new idea a welcome and a warm
place by the fireside of his heart;
orthodoxy regards the new idea as
a tramp, and keeps bull-dogs in front
of the house to frighten off every
new idea that comes along."
Referring to the lowest form of
Bkull that had ever been found, he
said that it was probably found in
"There has not been a patentable
improvement on the devil for 6,000
years," said the lecturer. "I'll tell
you what causes bronchitis among
ministers. If you talk solemnly
when you don't feel it, that makes
bronchitis. Did you ever hear that
an auctioneer had it? I call it par
sonitis. Laughter. jThis is my
doctrine: Give every other human
being every right you claim for
yourself. Keep your mind open to
the: Jnflnences. of nature. Receive
new thoughts with hospitality. The
religionist of to-day wants the ship
of his soul to. lie at tho wharf of
orthodoxy and rot in the sun. Ho
delights to hear the old opinions
flap against the masts of old creeds.
He loves to see the joints and the
sides open and gape in the sun, and
it is a kind of bliss for him to repeat,
Do not disturb my opinions.' . As
faras I am concerned, I wish to bo
out on the high seas. I wish to take
my chances with the wiud and wave
aud star. And I had rather go
down in the glory and grandeur of
the storm than to rot iu any ortho
dox harbor whatever.
"After all, we are improving from
age to age. The most orthodox

years &gb Vonld have been burned
for the crime of heresy.. The min
isters who denounce me for ex

been in the Inquisition themselves.
Our fathers worshipped the golden
calf. The worst you can say of an
American now is that ho worships
the gold of the calf. EvenfUje calf
is beginning to see this distinction.
It bo longer satisfies the ambition.

Mr. Ingersoll said: "The laugh of a
child will make tbe holiest day more
sacred still. Strike with hand of

strung with Appollo's golden hair;
fill tbe vast cathedral aisles with
symphonies sweet and dim, deft

do touch and kiss tbe moonlit waves,

mid the vino-clad hills. But know,

eyes with light and every heart with

Oh, Laughter, rose-lipped daughter
of Joy, there are dimples enough in
thy cheeks to catch and hold and
glorify all the tears of grief." New
York Sun, 30th.
I have wondered if there are.such
awkward ways of doiug things out
side of Egypt as are practised here.
The farming implements would be
laughable If they were not mon
strous. Tubal-Caiu certaiuly made
belter-formed scythes than are, used
here. The axes are simply long
sharp wedges. with a hole uear tbe
top, and a short, straight thick stick
in the hole for a handle. Forks are
big and awkward, aud twice as
heavy as our stable forks. Grain is
oftener threshed with the old-fashioned
flail than otherwise. I won
der they do not tramp it out with
oxen. It would be a slower processs,
and how to be slow is made a special
study here. The ploughs are the
climax of agricultural monstrosities.
They are great cumbersome things,
made almost wholly of wood, with
the beam mounted on two wooden
wheels big enough for coal carts.
My friend used just such a plough
yesterday on our farm. I half deny
ownership now, when I tbiuk of it.
It was pulled by six cows. Two
men were driving the cows, and
two men were holding the plough
up. I followed and looked on. They
were half a day ploughing half an
I am glad the whole concern,
plough-men, cow-drivers, and all,
were hired, aud not a part proper
of the farm. I sat on a stone wall
for half an hour and reflected
whether it were possible Americans
could not make small special farm
ing profitable, with their soil and
implements for farming, in the face
of the fact that these people not
only make a living, but save money,
on a poor soil and with the old-fashioned
tools of Egypt to work it.
I am certain the whole secret lies
in economy ; in the saving of a hun
dred little things that shall outbal
ance even the waste of the awkward
implements and these slow methods.
There will not a blade of grass be
seen among the vines here,, nor a
weed on the farm. There will not
be a twig of woo?d left to rot or a
potatoe undug. A gentleman's pri
vate garden could not be cleaner er
better kept than is the whole farm
in Switzerland, and cultivation,suuh
as is bestowed only ou hothouses
in America, is common hero to every
farm. Not one foot of ground is
left uncared for. It may take a good
deal of time, with such slow bands
to do it, but it is done. Not a chip,
not a straw is wasted. "We put
this little thing and that little thing
together," said my friend, "and at
the end of the year it makes a good
deal." One cannot afford waste or
bad farming on land at five or six
or ten hundred dollars an acre and
more. H. M. S. Byers in Harper's
Magazine for April.
A Boy's Ewtaj om Boards.
There are several, kinds of boards
sign -boards, base -boards, dash
boards, clapboards, aide - boards,
pasteboards, and school boards.
I think I will write about Bchool
boards because my sister is a teacher,
and I can remember a good many
things she has said about them, and
that will help me some.
I don't know whether school
boards are madebf green lumber, or
not. I heard my sister say once,
they wasn't half-baked. Guess she
meant it wasn't kiln-dried. May .be
ibe it warped, and turned over on
the wrong side, or may be It shrunk
badly, when exposed to the dry
question of wages.
School boards are of different
shapes, Borne are squares and pol
ished, on both sides; some are
longer than they are broad, and so
thin that they bend under slight
I aBked my sister what kind of a
board ours was, and she said it was
a good-looking board, but when put
to any use it was full of slivers.
There was a young lady staying I
ytWVi m i aicfop tVta airanlnrp T aras I
writing this, and she said sho tho't
some of the board would make good
hitching posts. I asked herif it was
becauso tbey were such big sticks.
She said that wasn't it. Then they
both laughed ; they thought I didn't
know what they meant but I did,
because I saw Mr. Jones take her to
church, and he is a member of the
board, and she acted as if she
thought he would be good to tie to.
The Bchool-bbard is used for the
purpose of getting the cheapest
teachers they can find whether they
know anything or not, and to vote
down women's wages and leave
men's as they are. This kind of
board is elected by the people, most
They most always get tbe closest
grained they can find; then when
the teachers say they don't get pay
enough the people say it is the
board. The teachers say tho people
has no right to get such hard wood
for their board and the board says
"what,are you going to do about it?"
Sometimes there is a weak, place
in the board, and when' thrown
against some hard question it splits
and goes all to pieces; then tbey
either get a new one, or stick the
old pieces together .again with taffy.
My sister says there is too much
slaug in this, but father says slang is
mighty and shall prevail. He knows
because he is a man. Men know ev
erything, because they can vote.
Sometime I will write about oth
er kinds of boards, if you have not
been too badly bored with this.
BY AUNT RUTH.
An agent was around the other
day who wanted me to subscribe for
the Woman's Journal. I told him J
had no particular objection, inas
much as the paper mentioned is very
good of its kind, but that I was
sorry he was not also agent for a
Man's Journal, as in that case I
would subscribe for a half dozen,
copies immediately. He did not
seem to understand upon what plat
form such a journal would be con
ducted, as men were supposed to
have their rights now. I will cou
dense my reply and put it in a more
connected form than I probably did
in the course of a rather lively con
versation. "If men have all their rights there
are some which they d not always
exercise. I would have a man's
journal advocate first of all the right
and duty of men to be pure. Many
of our boys imbibe tbe idea with
their growth that looseness of con
duct is a necessary accompaniment
of genius and power; they need to
learn instead that virtue is one of
manhood's inalienable rights, aud
that he -who parts with his chastity
makes a worse bargain than did
Esau, when he sold his birth-right
for a mess of pottage.
"Secondly, I would have tbe jour
nal advocate the right of all men to
be clean. It is time for our boys to
know that they will not suffer any
loss of caste among their fellow-men
if they do not stain the corners of
their mouths and coat their teeth
with tobacco juice, or smoke, until
the poisonous nicotine permeates
every pore of their clothing with an
odor of stale tobacco. -
"Thirdly, the journal should teach
men the right to be reverent. If a
man has a balky horse, or a knotty
stick of wood that won't split, it
does not help either one to swear at
it, and the curses which he calls
down upon the object of bis wrath
must inevitably descend upon his
"By all means, then, let Bomebody
start " The Man's Journal" at once,
for supposing we get all the rights
which the most Banguine of our sex
demand, what will they avail us, if
we must marry men who swear and
smoke, and chew, who are intemper
ate and licentious; and then live
lives of slow torture, as we see our
children grow up to indulge in the
vices which they have inherited
from their fathers?" Farm Jour.
Cheese Made From Potatoes.
A foreign paper, says that cheese
is made from potatoes in Thuringia
and Saxony. After having collect
ed a quantity of potatoes of good
quality, giving the preference to a
large white kfnd, they are boiled in
a canldron, and, after becoming
cool, they are reduced to a pulp,
either by means of a grater or mor
tar. To five pounds of this pulpj
which ought to be equal as possible,,
is added one pound of sour milk and
the necessary quantity of salt. The
.whole iekueaded together and the
mixture covered up and allowed to
lie for three or four days according,
to the season. At the end of this
timet it Is kneeded anew, and the
cheeses are placed in little baskets,
when the superfluous moisture es
capes. They are then allowed to
dry in the shade, and placed in lay
ers in large vessels, where they must
remain for fifteen days. The older
thesek cheeses ar tbe more their
quality improves. Three kinds are
made. The first and most common
is made as detailed above ; the sec
ond, wUh four parts of potatoes and
two parts of curded milk; the third
with two parts of potatoes and four
parts of cow or ewe milk. These
cheeses have this advantage over
other kinds theyfdp not, engender
worms ; aad they keep .fresh for a.
number of years, provided tbey are
placed, in -a dry situation and in
well classed vessels. Norfolk
DEATH FROM HYDROPHOBIA.
A Xan Bitten bj a Mad Do Dim Alone In the
Woodi of Hydrophobia, Hating Chained Illm
Mirto a Tree that' He Might not Injure Hli
Wire and. Children,
Washington, March 26. A Dal
las (Texas) letter says: A tragic
death has just occurred in our neigh
boring county worth relating and
worthy of Virginius or any other
Roman father. One year ago George
Arnold came to Dallas on private
business, and while walking the
streets he was bitten by a worthless
cur which was frothing at the mouth'
and showing symptoms of hydro
phobia. Mr. Arnold became alarm
ed and very much excited when
convinced in bis own mind that tbe
dog was mad. He went to a phy
sician and had the wound severely
cauterized, then going home. He
was still very uneasy and dreaded
hydrophobia, so much so that be
hunted up a mad-stone and had it
applied for several weeks off and on,
and the other day he began to ex
perience strange feelings, and at
once concluded that his time had
come. He then procured a twelve
foot trace chain and strong lock and
went to the woods. After writing
his wife a calm letter, in which he
told her what was about to happen,
giving directions 'as to his wishes
after death, and pouring out a vol
ume of love for her and their chil
dren, he ran tho chain around a tree,
drew it through tho largo ring at the
end and then wound tbe other end
around his ankle so tight that it
wouldn't Blip over the foot, fastened
it with the lock and threw the key
far beyond his reach. The body was
found two days after, still chained
to the tree. There was all the evi
dence necessary to show tho horri
ble death from hydrophobia. The
ground was torn up to tho full length
of tbe chain, the, nails of the fingers
wrenched off and all his front teeth
out in scratching and biting the
tree, and every-tbread of clothing
off hia body. . The body was dread
fully lacerated with these, the only
weapons the madman could use.
He had judged rightly what would
have been the consequence bad hq
remained at home, and knowing
that no human skill could have cured
hint, preferred death alone and iu
that way to doiiig harm to those so
near and dear to him as wife and

We ought to be just as tolerant of
an imperfect creed as we" are of an
imperfect practice. Everything
which can be urged in excuse for the
latter may also be pleaded for tho
former. If the way to Christian ac
tion is beset by corrupt habits and
misleading passions, the path to
Christian truth is overstrewn with
prejudices, and strewn with fallen
theories and rotting systems, which
hide it from pur vipw. , It 'is quite
as bard to think rightly as it is to
act rightly,- or oven to feel righ tly,
and as all allow that an error is a
less culpable thing than a crime or
a vicious passion, it is monstrous
that it should be more severely pun
ished ; it is monstrouB that Christ,
who was called the friend of pub-
utauo auii diuuoioi ouuum ud iCU-
resented as the pitiless enemy of
bewildered seekers after truth.
"I tell you," said Mr. Washington
McLean, of Cincinnati, the Warwick
of the democratic party in Ohio in
the good old days of that' now de
moralized organization, to a friend.
in Washington the other day, "I tell
.yon the democratic party is a played-
out quantity.; They stand up in the
senate .like a lot of sheep and take
whatever is given them, and if any
body threatens, to knock them on
tbe nose, they at once apologize for
having poses. Where are our Conk-
lings, our Blaines, our Hoars, our
Logans,. our Fryes ? We haven't got
fern. The republican party is the
party of pluck and audacity, while
ours has become tbe organization of
stupidity and cowardice. I'm sick
of tbe democratic party."
