A Btrtng* Product of J»r« and Itt American Prototype. A gentleman who visited Java has sent a very singular tree to his sister, who resides in Savannah. It is called :the tree of death. He says that the natives described to him that there was a singular tree called the Kali Mitjah. Its breath would kill birds, and even human beings. One day, when he was chasing a bird of paradise, he noticed that it dropped suddenly to the ground, under a tree. He examined the tree, and began himself to feel strangely, as the odors from its leaves began to be inhaled by him. His head siVam, and ringing sounds came to his cars, as though lit were being chloroformed. He hastened away from it, but procured a specimen and sent it to America, which, it is said is the first one transplanted in our soil. What a striking illustration this is of the tree of death which has been planted in our fair America by the distiller! It has leaves for the blighting of the nations. I see'the young, jthe'middled-aged; the old, chasing ; the 'birds' of pleasure and then falling down beneath the dark shadow of this baneful tree, to die there, never to rise again. Would that we might lay the ax at the root of this treel—Rev. E. S. Ufford. THEIR WORST FOE. A Cable tJetoar Around n Range Seventy- Mtc Miles Long. There exists in the great ocean between Australia and New Caledonia a rahge of mighty submarine mountains, Whose limestone tops rise within three hundred fathoms of the surface. The discovery bi these peaks, rising sheer seventy-fivt! hundred feet from the bottom of' the deep sea, was made by the men who have just finished laying the first section of the trans-Pacific cable. Sir Audley Coote, says the San Francisco Chronicle, who was at the head of the cable expedition, arrived here recently on the steamer Alatneda from Sydney, New South Wales. He said: "The sea from Australia to New Gale* donia has been surveyed by a British and by att American vessel. You* Al* batross went there and did some Very good work, but, as it happened, both this expedition and the other missed the strange feature of the ocean that I can describe. We had anticipated no great difficulty in laying the cable sec? tion, and did not find any until sud* denly the bottom of the ocean began to rise. We were forced to cut the cable there in midoceatt and to buoy up the ends. It was then found that what had hindered us was a range of submarine mountains. "There is nothing else like this In the World that I know of. The mountains rise in abrupt peaks, an<i are hard limestone and granite. By careful measurement we found that the peaks were more than seven thousand feet on the average, and the highest of them seven thousand five hundred feet from the bottom of the ocean. Less than three hundred fathoms from the surface of the water we found the tops of the highest mountains. The range extends for nearly seventy-five miles— that is, measuring from the extreme northerly to the extreme southerly point. To lay the cable around this range took forty-eight miles more of cable than we had counted on. We had to go around the peaks as a railroad would go around a mountain on land." f feelt Li-res Arc Happier Than those by Then? "Advanced" faster* It is a great mistake to think that because a woman is domesticated she must, in consequence, be dull, dowdy, cld-fashioned, and altogether out of the feocial sphere. A domesticated Woman iieed not be a mete domestic drudge, Whose thoughts and conversation are ebnfined wholly and solely to her house- told duties, the servants and care of ike nursery; who can take no interest in art, literature, politics or society. It is quite possible, even in these days 6f rush and hurry, as many women Hate proved, to take a personal and practical interest in her home and be- Itragings, and at the same time keep in touch with the deeper, fuller life of the outside world. To look Well after her awn household Is the duty and should be the pleasure of every Woman. Even those who have to leave the shelter of their homes to Work in the busy World Outside—and what a number of re* fined women have to do this in the present day—need not neglect their homes, for it is not so much time that is necessary for the smooth working of a household as thought, methods and punctuality. If the machinery is put in good Working order, not much time will be required to put It in motion each day. Women's duties are varied as well as domestic, for it is a duty as well as a pleasure to move In pleasant society, to keep up old friends, and make new acquaintances—a duty we owe to ourselves as well as to others, for none of us are meant for self alone. A domesticated woman can fulfill these duties, for, living in the calm and peaceful atmosphere of a well-ordered home, she has the time that the woman, who is always rushing about and trying to do everything, cannot commas d. ST, HlOflOLAS it 1896, For almost a quarter of a century—for twenty-two yeats, tooefixact—St. Nicholas Magazine has been bearing its welcome messages each month to the young people, of the land. It began existence in 1873* consolidating with it in its early years all of the leading children's periodicals of that day, "The Little Corporal," "Children's Hour." "The School-Day Magazine^" and "Out Young folks" among them. The last children's magazine to be merged in St. Nicholas was "Wide Awake," which was purchased and consolidated with it only a few years ago. It has been fortunate in securing contributions for its pages from the leading writers and artists of the language, while it has given to its readers many Works that have become imperishable classics in juvenile literature. St. Nicholas has had for many years a large circulation in Europe, and it is said to be read by many royal children.

Oh, young girls, fair and pure, and loving,' think of what lies before you! Think of the moral contamination, the miserable degradation,'which hang around the drunkard, and forswear the young man who drinks! Think of your unborn children, and tremble for their future if you give to them a father who drinks! Smile no more upon this deadly sin of wine-drinking! Scorn it! Never give its practice your sanction in ever so remote a degree. Oh, that the women of our nation would turn their faces, as one woman, eternally from the man who drinks! Oh, that the mothers 'would close the doors of their against the wine- drinking young man as»against the leper, and let society understand that no embryo drunkard will be received as honored and respected into its ranks. • How is it now? Society smiles upon the young man of good family who drinks a little now and then, It offers him win* at its social gatherings, It virtually tells him that he is just as good as if he did not drink, It turns out the bloated sot, but, it re ceives with open arms the poor young wretch'it is helping to reach the sot's ultimate condition, Far be it from us to despise any body. We would lift up the fallen, wherever they may be, found—we would encourage the drunkard to reform—we wpw'id-tak§ -him into our respect' when he 'has shown himself worthy'of it-, but Qpd fprbid that we whc\ persistently tells us , drinks,, and,' knpws enough to Dnneer Which Mo»«o«» th* Catholic Church ThrouKli th» J.lquor Trattlc. The Alliance News,. England; saysj "Very Rev. F. C. Hays, nephew of the great temperance reformer, Father Nugent, and closely connected with the late Cardinal Manning and Father Mathew, speaking the other day at Leicester, said that the Roman Catholic church in these countries had no greater enemy to fear than intemperance. Seventy-five per cent, of those who were lost to them were lost through the moral corruption caused by intemperance, i which had devastated their church and done more harm than any other agency. Father Hays declared that in the slums and alleys of the great towns he had found hundreds of poor people who were simply thirsting to be delivered from the slavery of drink. Despite their frequent taking the .pledge they in-; variably .fell &way, again. He believed that','as they could not keep the people from the drink, the only means of humanizing and Christianijuing the bulk of the masses was to take the drink away from them." How a Darky Gamin Turned the Laugh. on a Storekeeper. A little negro gamin passing along Bay street the other morning saw the stump of a cigar fall on the sidewalk in front of a store. He made a second- base slide for it, says the Florida Times-Union, and when he had it safely coralled beneath him; he, rolled'his eyes-around'tho points .of the compass to see if another /gamin had also seen the stump fall. "Dat war in Cuba is making Havanas skace, an' you can't take no chances," he remarked, as he brushed off the ash and blew away the sand from the coveted snipe. Going into the store he said to Charley Ellis: *•''•••„ "Boss, gimme a match, please, sah. "Matches are not here to give away, but to sell," said Mr. Ellis, assuming a look of intense severity. "Dey is, eh?" "That's what they are." "Well, how much are dey er box?" "One cent." The gamin tilted the stump in one corner of his mouth, held to the band of his pantaloons with one hand, ran the other hand in his pocket, and pulled forth a copper. , ,, "Gimme a box," and the lad laid down the cent. ' He got the box, struck a match, lit the stump so well that it poured forth volumes of smoke, and then handed the box back to Mr. Ellis, assuming a look of intense severity, and said: "Put dat box on de sheff, an' the nex time a gemmen come in hyar an' ax you fer a match, you gin outen my my "box." _'___ RACE. lead lives of excitement .and rush do so, not because they really like it, but because it is what they consider fashionable. If the tide were once turned, they would gladly follow it, and, in following it, would discover that their lives were fuller and happier than in the days when they ran about, breathlessly, with complaints of no time, and a bustling air that deceived no one except themselves.—St. Louis Republic. FOR FAIRS. Don't Vfarlt Well Together, The secretary of the Bible society in Fayetteville, O,, in. a report says; „ Thirty-five years' ago we had thirty distilleries in our county and no churches; No we have thirty churches and no distillery, The two institutions do not work well together. In fact, where the r«m traffic is flourish' ing—as in Ireland, for instance—the most prominent build i'ngs are likely to be poor-houees, prisons, hospitals and lunatic asylums.

At a trotting race recently in Brighton, Col., all the neighboring towns had a candidate entered, and feeling ran high. A Denver sport, who was jockey as - well as owner, entered the best of his string, and bought up every pool on his steed, ' . When the Denver man got off m tne lead, says the New York World, he cut across the track and took the rail be- fpre the other jockeys were fairly under way. Be held his advantage around the turn and along theb»ckstretch,but as he made the last turn and squared away for home, his two nearest competitors began to gain on him, Down the long stretch the Denver man was, still in the lead, but they 'were crowding him fast, and the day* light between the three was,growing less and less every instant, There was 'oniypno chance left, and • that a very TRIFLES Things That Are Eaolly Made and Can Be Sold at a Fair Price. A great variety of attractive and in T expensive trifles, fpr sale at fairs can be easily iashioned out of heavy watercolor paper. Calendars and blotters, music and picture folios, photograph cases rand- picture frames, as well as note-paper and postal-card cases, are among the dainty and charming things that a little taste and ingenuity can contrive. Of course, a little skill in the use of water colors, so that graceful flower sprays can be painted, will be a great advantage; but much can be accomplished with a free use of gliding and soft-toned ribbons. Beware of bright' reds, vivid blues and crude greens; the days of these have gone by. A charming blotter nine by twelve inches, has rough torn edges, which are deeply splashed irregularly with gilding, and diaganally, from lower left-hand corner to upper right-hand, is lettered some suitable motto, as: "Written thoughts are living things." Underneath this fasten three or four leaves of blotting paper, tying all together with a generous bow of old-rose ribbon, fastened' in one corner. Very pretty cases for hosiery, shoes, gloves and handkerchiefs are made of fine linen or pongee, etched with simple designs in blue and white, copied from old china plates.—Demorest's Magazine. BIGGEST OF SACHETS. Uwsd by J?a»hlonable Women for Their ; Dainty Night Robot. The latest fad oj milady is an enormous sachet for her dainty robe de nuit, which is laid across the foot of her bed during the daytime, instead of a duvet. The sketch represents one of these pretty affairs which was recently made for a wedding present. The material is of cream satin duchesse wadded with The magazine is a help to those that have the care and up-bringing of children, in that it is full of brightness and interest and tends to cultivate high aspirations, without being "preachy" and prosy and lugging in too apparent moralizing. Its readers are always loyal to it, and they will be glad to learn what has been provided for their delectation during the coming year. The leading feature will be a delightful series of letters written to young people from Samosa by Bobert Louis Stevenson. These describe the picturesque life of the lamented romancer m his island home, and give interesi:ing portraits of his native retainers. Rudyard Kipling, whose first Juugle Stories appeared in St. Nicholas, will write for it in 1896, and James Whitcomb Eiley, the Hoosier poet, will contribute a delightful poem, "The Dream March of the Children," to the Christmas number. The serial stories represent several favorite names. "The Sword- maker's Son" is a story of boy-life in Palestine at the time of the founding of Christianity. It is written by W. O. Stoddard, whose careful study or the history of the times and whose travels over the scenes of the story have enailed him to present vividly the locdfioloring. "The Prize Cup" f*.
