The Heart' Secret.
It is well that no spectators are
permitted to catch a glimpse of our
heart's secrets ; that the door is never
opeued to let any one enter to view
our unseen ghosts. If we have our
songs in the night, our midnight
vigils, we care not the world should
witness our disappointments and
mishap. "Deep in each heart's un
dreamed, unsought recesses, lie
buried many a fond idol, many a
treasure. Our spectres stand before
us iu their dead form, aud we touch
their icy hands, press kisses on their
cold lips; they are constantly sauu
teriug out from their graves; we
sigh and weep because we cannot
clasp their living presence within
our arms, it is better the world
should not know our heart's secrets ;
its bitter scorn and its cold pity
would bestow little sympathy; it
would neither condole nor solace us
under merciless disappointment and
withered hopes. Wo mingle in the
whirling throng of human beings,
we cross the broad ocean, we travel
through foreign countries. Who
rends the heart's secrects ? To whom
are they revealed? They may be
guessed, conjectured, suspected, but
they are not voluntarily exposed.

the recesses of our bosoms, far out
The water power of Niagara Falls
was the subject of a paper read by
Mr. Delano, of the Niagara National
bank, the other day, before the na
tional conveution of bankers held at
the Falls. It must have been an in
teresting subject, illustraded as it
was by the sight and sound of the
power itself. The recent mag
nificent inventions for utilizing elec
tricity in stationary and locomotive
machinery, and in lighting houses
and streets, have lent a new interest
to such great reservois of power as
Niogara. Electricity will trans
mit power to most distant points
and bring Niagaria to work in the
shopj iu New York or Philadelphia,
or cable it across the Atlantic to run
a traiu from London to Liverpool.
The potentialities of the electric cur
rent, opened up by late discoveries
made by men who devote their lives
to the study of the subject, surpass
the dreams of the most visonavy
scientists of ten years ago. Never
was there such activity of mechan
ical and motor invention as there is
to-day. One year of the latter half
of the 19th century is longer, meas

ItKlCltNOA v. 1KI.A.KV.
Carried to the Supreme Court and
the Verdict of the Lower
The supreme court has just ren
dered a decisiou affirming the judg
ment of the district court in the
trespass case of Charles Erickson
against John Delaney. Erickson
brought action against Delaney iu
the county court, claiming that De
laney had pastured down and de
stroyed eighty to one hundred acres
of meadow land belonging to him,
Erickson, and whirh he was saving
for hay, by herding and pasturing
his cattle aud sheep on the same
without Erickson's consent and re
gardless of notices not to do so.
Delany claimed that the land in
question being "wild, unbroken, un
inclosed land," it was common to
the public and he and others had
been in the habit of pasturing the
the laud since the first settlement in
the neighborhood and had a lawful
right to do so until such time as the
lana snoum oe oroken up or en
closed. Judgment in the county
court was given plaintiff for .$25 aud
costs. Delaney then appealed to the
district court, and on trial there
judgment was again in favor of
Erickson for $70 and costs. The case
was then taken by defendent to the
supreme court. In an opinion filed
iu the caso in September, 1880, the
supreme court held in effect that the
owner of stock in this state has a
right to let it run at large upon the
wild, uninclosed, unbroken prairie
land of the state, without being lia
ble in trespass to the owners of the
land on which the stock might stray,
and reversed the case. Subsequent
ly on motion of plaintiff, a rehearing
was granted by the supreme court,
and the case waa reargued in July
last by Attorney Monger for De
laney, and Loorais for Erickson.
The decision just rendered affirms
the judgment of the district court,
thus holding in effect that though a
man may lawfully let his cattle run
at large upon the wild, uninclosed
prairie lands of the state, yet he may
not forcibly herd and pasture them
upon the grass land of another with
out the owner's consent and after
notice to keep them off. The opin
ion in the case is not yet filed, but
this is understood to be the ground
of the present holding of the court,
as it is the ground on which coun
sels for Erickson have prosecuted
the cause, aud on which the rehear
ing was granted by the supreme
court and the cause reargued in
July. Fremont Herald.
Lady readers who have uot tested
the magic properties of borax, have
been losing a great help and com
fort. If once used, you will never
be without it on your toilet table.
It removes stain and dirt trom the
hands better than soap, and at the
same time softens and smooths the
skin . It is splendid for washing
the hair, and will, without injurey,
clean brushes and combs in a few
moments. For washiug purposes it
saves both soap and labor. It will
oxtract the dirt from articles of deli
cate texture without rubbing, it be
ing only necessary to put the articles
in to soak with a solution of borax
over night, and need only to be rins
ed in the morning. Two table
spoons of pulverised borax dissolved
in a quart of water, to which water
enough is added to cover a pair of
blauket8,will cleanse them beuutiful
ly. It also saves great labor in washing
paint. It is said to drive away ants
and roaches, if sprinkled on the
shelves of safes aud pantries. Ex.
