OF GENERAL, INTEREST. 1 —The religious statistics of the Brit- iih army, which have just been issued, •how that out of a total of 109,478-noncommissioned officers and men, 187,973, or 677 per thousand, belong to th« Church. —Four aching molars were recently the lot of Mr. Smith Williams, a colored resident of Lexington, Ky. He refused to have them extracted, saying that he preferred to die with less pain. He afterward went out to his barn and hanged himself with a log chain. —A huge squid or cuttlefish stranded " 5tself on the beach, at Island Cove, Newfoundland, a few days ago. Its extreme length was 32 feet, the tentacles alone measuring 21 feet; the body was much longer than that of an ordinary Tiorse, and the pelt three inches in thickness. It was cut up before being removed. —Although nearly every European ' Government has grabbed a slice of Africa, that continent is so large that every nation on earth can gobble a > chunk of territory as large as the State oi Texas, and there will then be left plenty of land to support a negro population of 100,000,000. No fear of any One taking too much of the dark continent.—Detroit Free Press. —In digging a cellar in Montville -Center, six miles southwest of Norwich, Conn., a few days ago, David A. and S. JL Johnson unearthed a solid ball of - makes five feet beneath the surface of the ground. They killed the serpents «s the ball slowly unwound itself. They got forty-three black and two milk snakes, whose bodies just filled a bushel basket The snakes were from three to six feet long. —What Will Prevent Bunions.—Easy shoes with wide soles and low heels will be found the most effectual pre- T«ntive of bunions on the feet 'Where they exist, they can be palliated "by spreading thickly with cold cream or some healing salve, upon going to "bed. A round piece of court-plaster over the xmguent will keep it in place and save soiling the bed-clothes.— Ladies' Home Journal. —A curious padlock, probably the most ingenious ever made, was constructed in England the twentieth year of Queen Elizabeth's reign, by a blacksmith named Mark Scar Hot It. consisted of eleven pieces of iron, steel and v J" "brass^all of which, together, with the f; "key and chain to whichit was attached, ^-""weighed'less than one grain'and a'half. •The gold chain'which,fastehed-lbck and "key together -had-.for'ty-threeMinks, and -when, complete, Scarlidt put the, chain 1 about the neck of a'common flea,;and the little insect drew it over a silver jplate with perfect ease. —The Hungarian Government is a be- ^liever in the kindergarten system as one remedy for existing social evils. A a bill drawn up by the Minister of Edu- -•oation is now before the Hungarian ,IParliament. It provides for the establishment of kindergartens in every one , of the 12,000 communities. It makes I attendance between the ages of three *\£-a,nd sis compulsory, unless private gov- ~-emesses are employed. The compul-. J'jBory feature is explained by the great J'mortality of the children in Hungary $f -which is said to result from want of su- jL pervision, because the parents work in f- factories. £ —A simple and novel treatment for ^"the cure of dyspepsia and cancer of the 'ijrtomach has lately been practiced by ] Sranany prominent physicians. This con- in washing- out' the stomach. A LSong flexible pipe is passed down the !*<hroat until one end j,s in the stomach. if The upper end has a funnel attached, i^Jnto which hot water is poured until the jtomach is filled. The funnel end of •the pipe is then turned down until it is 3ower than the bottom of the stomach, '-•which, is thus emptied as through a ;~siphon. The hot water closes the blood "cYessels and reduces inflammation, and irthe relief-is immediate.

The chief of is.'the -Russian Consul-General in Each of the four cities men- I;St- i i^tioned; however, has its assistant chief, fwho has charge of some- twenty-five or' <."thirty spies.

The train consists of a carriage for ••Hie Emperor and Empress, another for lH»e heir apparent, a third for the Grand 'Duke and Grand Duchesses, two for ihe attendants, two more for the ser- jrants, a saloon carriage; a kitchen and •work shop.

On Him Kcsts the Hope of the Great Republic. There was once a time, happy long past, when the United States held only men of the North and men of the South. Now, as the country has developed on broader lines, we have learned to think of the men of the East, of the Mississippi Valley, of the Rocky Mountains, and of the Pacific Coast, as four great and characteristic groups. East of the Alleghanies are the oldest of the commonwealths: west of the Sierras are a chain of young States presenting remarkable contrast to the rest of the Union. California, Oregon and Washington occupy the mountain slopes and plain-like valleys of a more extensive begion than the whole Atlantic seaboard States, and here, no less than in the Mississippi Valley, the American pioneer is establishing immensely prosperous and powerful communities, bound closely together by innumerable bonds of sympathy and interest. Some one must rule, and in the end It is the man. Since in the United States a process of union in great groups is steadily at work, producing types, all American, and yet all characteristically different from each other, the underlying problem is, what sort of a, man is the typical man of the larger group? In the long run, numbers count, of course, and the man of the mighty West rf broad, descending levels, from Minnesota to Louisiana, is coming by swift steps to his dominion. But there Is a man of the foot-hills, of the uplands, of the champaign country, of the mountain valley and the high wilderness, whose power on this continent, more slowly recognized, may some day some to mean far more to civilization than that of any other. Under certain jonditions of national life, the hope of the Republic might rest upon the men pf the Alleghanies, the .Rockies, the Sierras and the Cascades. Out of their fastnesses they might carry a new gospel to the cities and the dead levels of a worn-out, over-cultivated social order. The miner's camp, the settler's cabin, the hillside orchard, the orange-planted ,tt'cre, the horticxiltural colony in some hidden semi-tropic valley of California, each.v and 'all strengthen the power of the-great group • of States whose people are essentially men of the uplands, and add immeasurably to the breadth and llignity of American life. California leads in the list of mountain States, because it is the oldes^t such State west of the Mississippi, and, like Washington and Oregon, it borders on the Pacific ocean. That means less now than it will when the wealth of the Orient comes to America instead of going to Europe, but the possession of a sea-coast always means much, and tbe man of the land west of the Sierras knows th;it he holds one of the gateways into America. —Lippincott's Magazine. AN INDIAN LEGEND. The Traditions Concerning SleepinR Bear Point and the llanltou Islands. The folk lore of the Indians of Michigan is almost a thing of the past, but few of their legends being preserverd at the present time. To be sure, there are a few of the old natives whose locks have been whitened by the recurring frosts of many winters, who preserve a few of the traditions of their tribes. Such a one is Wien-da-goo-ish, an aged brave, whose huge proportions gave him the name mentioned, which, translated into English, means giant. Being in a communicative mood a few days ago he related one of his tribal traditions, concerning the Manitou Islands and Sleeping Bear Point. He said that many years ago, before the primeval woods of Michigan and Wisconsin had been invaded by the ruthless white man, the wild animals of the forest were possessed of spirits, and that the medicine men of the tribes were able to £ilk with them. Once upon a time a huge she-bear was compelled to desert the shores of Wisconsin and with her two cubs take to the waters of Miclri-game,the great lake, on account of fires that were raging in the wilderness. The heat was so intense that the mother bear conclude*! not to return to the Wisconsin shore, but struck boldly out for the banks of Michigan. Whwi nearly across the lake the two cubs sank from exhaustion and were drowned. The old bear swam about the spot for hours, but her cubs rose not again. Finally weariness compelled her to seek the shore, reaching which she climbed a huge bluff and lay down to sleep. That bluff was Sleeping Bear Point, and from that day to this, the spirit of the old bear has remained on that bluff, and from the spot where sank the two cubs there gradually arose two beautiful islands, the North and South Manitou, or, as it means In the vernacular of the Ottawas, Spirit Islands. The spirits. of the cubs are supposed to abide on the islands, and that of the mother bear keeps a constant and loving-watch over the homes of her loved ones, where they are bound to remain until terrestrial time shall be no more, when they will be transported .to the Indian heaven, or happy hunting grounds, not as victims of the -huntsmen, but as guardians of the Indians who love them. . On stormy nights, the Indians say the spirit of the mother bear moans and cries from her post on the great sand bluff, in anxiety for the fate of her young, the shores of whose home are being assailed by the treacherous waves which caused their death.—Detroit Free Press. . Didn't Read Deeply. Briggs—I'm astounded that Clara Van de Milk doesn't find out the character of that dissolute -foreigner she's about to marry. Why, that girl used to be able to read a man like a book. Dobbs—Probably she's satisfied in this case to read only the title.—Detroit Free Press. THE CLAMS LOOKED GOOD. SheThonslit Tliey Were Intended For Internal Application. "Hope y' ain't got the toothache, mum?" said the fish man the other day to a Jersey City girl, at whose house he was delivering some oysters. The fish man spoke in compassionate tones, iot the girl was sitting forlornly in a chair, with both hands pressed convulsively to the sides of her face. "No, not the toothache," she moaned, "only a horrible, sore throat that is a, thousand times worse than any toothache ever could be." "Is that all?" replied the fish man. "Why, if you'll listen, to -my advice, you'll have that all cured in no time." •'Do tell me how," exclaimed the girl, "and I'll be forever grateful to you." "There ain't nothing easier," said the fish man, "than .to cure a sore throat. You can get rid of it in no time. All you have to do is to get a raw clam and bind it over on the.place where the soreness is, and it will jest move out and not leave any sign of ever bavin' been there. Raw clams are great fur diphtheria, too. My boss cured a case of diphtheria, mum, witn* raw clams applied outside, that the doctors had given up. That's the truth, that is, and I advise you to try a couple of 'em on your sore throat." "Well, if they'll do any good, I wish you'd send me round a couple," said the girl, "and I'll give them a trial." "That I will, mum, and I'm sure they'll fix you up. " The fish man did as he promised. He selected two extra plump clams, opened them carefully, and sent them round to the house. A few days later, having occasion to leave an order at the house, he asked the girl's mother if his clams had done her daughter's sore throat any good. "Why, to tell you the truth," replied the mother, "she .did not apply them in the way you advised. She said they looked so appetizing that she could not resist the temptation, and then ate them." — N. Y. Sun. CIiaiigCN'of Climate Kill more people than is generally known. Particulajjly is this the case in instances where the constitution is delicate, and among our immigrant population seeking new homes in those portions of the West, and where malarial and typhoid fevers prevalatcer- tain'seasons of the year. The best preparative for a change of climate, oo of diet and water which that change necessitates, is Hostetters Stomach Bitters, which not only fortifies the system against malaria, a variable temperature, damp, and the debilitating effects of tropical heat, bnt is also the leading remedy for constipation, dyspepsia, liver complaint, bodily troubles specially apt to attack emigrants and visitors to regions near tbe equator, mariners aud tourists. Whether used as a safeguard by sea voyagers, travelers by land, miners, or of agriculturists in new populated districts, this fine specific has elicited the most favorable testimony.

IU- D2 Read What Hon. Wm. E. Gladstone SAYS: MY EXAMINATION OF THE AMERICANIZED Encyclopaedia Britanica Has been entirely satisfactory. The following 1 are some of the points noted in my examination: In Biography I find the "AMERICAN ENCYCLOPAEDIA BRITANNICA" treats o the life of every man that has helped to mould the history of his times— or that has controlled the events and destinies of his people or of the world: —whether that life be in ancient, medieval, modern or present time. Four thousand separate biographies are included under this feature—a. feature embraced in NO OTHER CYCLOPAEDIA NOW IN PRINT. In History I find the history of every nation taat has flourished, fully.outlined the physical geography, the geology, climate, natural productions—animal or plants, r etc.,; as well as the governmental, religious, social and. commercial status of- each perion of its history—whether of Bubylon, Egypt, India. Europe or America; whether in an er.a oJf the world 4,000 years past, or in the year of_our Lord, 1891. In the Arts and Sciences I find that its leading and greatest articles have been penned only by the hands of-our greatest masters in Europe and America. No LITTLE men have figured in the great chapters on Science—none but the greatest in experiment and analysis. Their close analyses, their brilliant experiments and their triumphant demonstrations alone rest under the grand conclusions of science in general, as published in these volumes. In Literature I find the literature of the highest thought wherever the name is mentioned, The history, of no country is mentioned unconnected from its- literature—if it had a. literature. English, American, French, German —are given as fully as any other characteristic feature in the history of a. people In Religion I rind this Encyclopaedia a treasure-house filled with the finest and the- ablest contributions of some of the greatest of our scholars. The Bible of every great religion—its composition and the history of its origin— whether in India or Europe, in Palestine or China—has had the concentrated light of scores of the best living intellects thrown upon it, in the articles on the Bible in this Encyclopaedia. On Every Subject I have found the deepest research, the profotindest investigation linked with the most lucid statement, as if truth, alone were the objective and only point aimed at by the writers of this great and latest publication, of encycloprediac knowledge.
