The steamer Longfellow was one of the largest, bust-known and handsomest packets on the Ohio river. She was :i stern-whee.ler, and up to about two years ago was known us the U. P. Schonck. At that time she was- pin-chased by her present owners, the White Collar Ijinu company, and the name was changed to the Longfellow. She was freighted almost entirely with reaping and mowing machines for the southern markets. The consignment consisted of more than 300 machines and was billed to Vieksburg, Bazoo City uud Now Orleans. -It is doubtless the, largest shipment of harvesting machinery ever made at one time out of Cincinnati, ami shows that thu south is preparing for a period of. prosperity. An interesting fact connected with the shipment is r that the goods were actually sold aud are not being shipped down there on exhibition. HOW 10 PASS INSIRANCE. An Expert's Opinion. "I was born and brought up in the Life Insurance business and whenever I found a man troubled with any kidney trouble I have always recommended Warner's Safe Cure, not because I had any 'axe to grind- but I found if a man would take a i half dozen bottles of the Safe Cure 'that in nine cases out of ten be 'would pass the medical examination.

Mr. Frederick Greenwood, in his personal recollections, written for the "Realm," tells the following- story: la- j "Everybody who lives with books has heard that Robert Browning's 'Sludge, the Medium,' reflected upon Flome. and most people have also heard that the celebrated creature succeeded in bringing Mrs. Browning under his influence completely. But the trick that undeceived her (we must suppose; is not so well known. It rnay have got into print, but, if so, I, for one, liavo ucvor j seen it, and tell the story ns it was l.oi'.l by Browning himself, llomc^liad bctn a.bor.t the Brownings a good (l-.-al, know many people known to thorn; was, in his tea-party way, an agreeable sort of person; and there were seai>cos here and seances there; 'and,' said the poet, casting a vague look about the room to express his bewilderment, '1 don't know how it was. 1 did my best, but little by little he gained her over to believing in him; how much to my distress, imagine!' After awhile Uorne found a yet more excellent way of working oa the poor lady's mind. She had lost a liu.le child by death, and, her own wishes running o;it to embrace the promise, he began to hint that someday he would bring the little one's spirit into her presence. But ho was slow in performing'this promise—naturally; for, otherwise, ho would have lost the advantage of an excited expectation, often stimulated'and as often baffled. At last an evening was named when the mother's yearning should be satisfied. In the customary way, light was shut out of the 1-00:11 when tho three sat down, and the usual rap- pings and questioning's and invocations went on for a time, and then— then the child's spirit was to appear. And, sure enough, there did arise above the edge of the table something that was whiter than the dark, that seemed to havo a motion of its own and the luminonsncss of a living thing, and that might veritably be what poor Mrs. Browning fancied it. lint, conscious of her trembling state of mind, her husband was in auothcr- gucss sort of passion. '1 suddenly sprang up, dashed my arm across the. labk', and took hold of—what do you think'.' The scoundrel's obscene foot!— naked!'

The passage ef the North sea, or German ocean—for it Is equally well known by both titles—is looked upon with dread by the navigators who have to brave its dangers, says the Boston Transcript. The sailors of the Xorth German Lloyd call it the Sea of Murder, in allusion to th'c marine disasters with which its history bristles. The captain of the linor whose destination is Liverpool feels that the perils of bis voyage are practically over when he reaches Queenstowh. Thecommanders of the sister ships of the Elbe, on the other hand, realize that the most dangerous part of their journey is yet to come, for ahead of them is the narrow and crowded English channel and the equally crowded and tempestuous North sea. These unruty waters are open to the fierce sweep of the wind that is so dreaded in Europe, that which is from the northeast. Only those who have experienced these marrow-chilling, pneumonia-breeding blasts can realize their anger and their power. Tho Gulf stream, which surges up the channel and around the northern end of the British Isles, meets the icy currents from the arctic regions. Storms, varied by dense fojrs, result from this combination. The east const of England forms a deadly lee shore for the shipping caught in the prevailing winds. In addition to these natural dangers, the North sea is crossed nnct recrossud by doxens of steamer "lanes." It is also the seat of the great herring fisheries, with their thousands of smacks and schooners that, lying at anchor licre, there and everywhere, are are by no means the least of the dangers which menace the navigator. Here. too. there are hundreds of Scotch and English coasting craft, which stand well to sea to avoid the dungers of shore lines. And, lastly, the mouth of the Thames spreads funnel-like into the North sea, adding to the total perils with its fleets of incoming and outgoing vessels. for Infants and Children.

The third class arc gorgeous, with a robe on which ft peacock is crnbla.;:- oncd, while from the center of the red fringe of silk upon the hat rises a sapphire button. The button of the fourth class is an opaque dark purple stone, and the bird depicted on the robe is the pelican. A silver pheasant on the robe and a clear crystal button on the ha.-t are the rank of thu fifth class. The sixth class are entitled to wear an embroidered stork and a jadestone button; the seventh a partridge and" an embossed gold button. In the eighth the partridge is reduced to a quail, and the gold button becomes plain, while the ninth-class mandarin has to be content with a sparrow for his emblem, and with silver' for his button.

The ignorance of French writers who treat of matters relating to the United States is generally very much in evi- | den'ce. One of them iu a recent issue j of the Revue ScientiSque, writing upon i the subject of our edible turtles and incidentally of cookciy in this country, ! makes the statement that green turtles i arc taken iti the neighborhood of Xew | York—from there to Florida. lie also asserts that it is only in aliments of ' aquatic origin that our food products ; are superior to those of Europe, 'that •' our fishes are abundant and generally good, but that our culinary treatment of them is inferior. As regards our meats, poultry and game, the Frenchman dismisses them as little worthy of attention. Of the first; two it may be conceded, says tho New York Sun, that the average quality is not soliigh as in France. His estimate of our game is probably based upon the condition in which it reaches European markets, where it is sold in larg-e quantities in the close season here. This estimate ia not a fair one, inasmuch us almost all of our game which goes abroad has, previous to shipment, been held for months in cold-Storage warehouses, to its deterioration both in quality and flavor. As regards our native cookery, the French writer asserts that there is not much in it to tempt a European particularly, and especially a Frenchman. While this may be true concent- ing the country at larg-e, an exception must be made in favor of the native i cookery of Maryland and eastern Vir- ! ginia and that of the Creole population i of Louisiana, whieh, within its com- j pass, is second to none. The fact must not be lost sight of that in the last : decade culinary skill -with us has made i great advances, the results of which : would not be apparent to a superficial j foreign observer. A case in point illus- ! trative of our progress in this direction : is offered in the alimentary department • of our exchanges for woman's work, j Within the restrictions which it im- ! poses, the edibles there on sale, the | work of native feminine bread winners, ! are promptly bought by discriminating' i purchasers, so far are they superior i I ;o foreign preparations of a similar •• $ character. .
